HIDEKI KOBEYASHI
Age: 17
Height: 5’5
Weight: 165
Hideki is a local jock and good ol’ boy at Daijin High School. He means well, but doesn’t truly understand what’s going on around him. His dad and Minoru Akujin had a rivalry when they were young, so Hideki sort of tried to continue this with Toru before he realized that Toru was a good guy.
Hideki is actually not good at sports look football or baseball. He left a few sports clubs. His main “sport” is actually lifting. He also has an orange belt in karate. Hideki fancies himself a cool delinquent, but the most rebellious thing he’s ever done is bleach his hair blond.
RYUU “OLD MAN”/ “WIZARD” AKUJIN
Age: 71
Height: 5’4”
Weight: 137 lbs
Many of the Akujins left Daijin, disavowing the magic life. Ryuu was one of the few who stayed and continued studying magic. As a young man he traveled the world, collecting obscure lore. He became obsessed with proving that it was possible to create a superior man-devil by having the human impregnate a demon. This lead to him summoning the demon Valhelamet and performing the experiment with her. This resulted in Ryuu’s son Minoru and, by extension, Toru.
Ryuu raised Toru after the boy’s mother died. Finding out that Toru’s deformities and mental issues would keep him from properly integrating with society, Ryuu decided to train him in the Akujin way of exorcising demons and other dangerous beings.
@M1mgaa: You're not the first person to make that connection.
AYA CHIHIKO
Age: 16
Height: 5’2”
Weight: 125 lb
A high school student from Kyoto, Aya moved to Daijin with her family. Mundane life in Kyoto had become dull for her, and she was worried that Daijin was be even worse. Fortunately, after meeting Toru, Aya finds out that Daijin isn’t dull at all. Unfortunately, it’s not dull because it’s infested with bloodthirsty demons. Aya has to try her hardest to keep her sanity relatively intact…
Aya was originally planned to be merely the POV character to all the weird crap that happens in Demon King. I think that as I’ve developed the story she’s become something more. Her design is sort of supposed to be a kind of generic shoujo protagonist look, which I think fits for her being the everyman.
TORU AKUJIN
Age: 17
Height: 6’3’’
Weight: 150 lb
A young quarter demon and exorcist who lives in the small Daijin. A lifetime of trauma and cruelty at the hands of the townsfolk of Daijin has left him not quite right in the head. The reappearance of the Demon King in his life has caused him to further research the powers he has inherited from his grandmother, the demon Valhelamet.
The main character, more less. Demon King was based on a dream, and somehow the exorcist from it became this weirdo. I really liked the idea of the “hero” having an evil and scary look. Toru’s appearance was mostly based of Cesare, the somnambulist from the old horror movie The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari with some demon bits, like thee pointy ears and fangs, thrown in. His overly long limbs are based on a drawing my sister did of him. Thanks, Ma!
Yeah, another one. Read Demon King. It has your daily allowance of vitamins, minerals, and sorcery.

@BananaUhl: The derp of evil.
@sentiashinou: I'm glad you liked it! I wanted to do something a little different than usual.

Demon King's got a new cover, and do you know what that means?

I don't know. Maybe new arc might be starting or something. You'll have to find out next Friday.

At last! It's finally here!
Demon King is back!! Hope everyone had a nice New Years!

I'm almost done with the Chapter 1 reboot, so expect that to come up soon.
That's some pretty badass screen toning.
Oh, god, that spooky tree. Thanks, Santa!

I really dig how you integrated the comic's aesthetics.
