Azazel (アザゼル Azazeru) is the Governor General of the Fallen Angels and Grigori. He also appears in High School DxD.
Azazel is a tall man appearing to be in his twenties with an average build, black hair, golden bangs and black goatee. In the anime, his eye color is shown to be varied colours of purple, depending on the light and surroundings. He also possess' twelve jet-black feathered wings that grows out from his back when in fight.
It is hard to determine Azazel's personality as he is laid-back yet serious, while also wise and insane at the same time. His character seems to reflect upon the situation at hand. Azazel loves to collect things, and a research fanatic, especially on Sacred Gears. He is also shown to be pacifistic, preferring to talk his way out of troubles rather than resorting to violence. He has been shown to care deeply for his fellow Fallen Angels, Shemhaza and Barakiel.
Azazel has also been shown to be extremely charismatic, being able to endear his Fallen Angel followers. Azazel has complicated feelings on the fact that many of his friends and acquaintances are all married and have a family.
Azazel is first mentioned in SLASHDOG at the "Governor General" and is the person who gave Natsume and Samejima the eggs to hatch their Sacred Gears and provide a place for them to stay while hiding from the Utsusemi. He later contacts Tobio and his friends through a speaker giving them the details of the situations they are currently facing.
Powers & AbilitiesEdit
Immense Light Weapon Skill: Azazel is very skillful and powerful in using his light-based powers. Unlike most other Fallen Angels that can only create one light spear at a time, Azazel is powerful enough to generate countless light spears and shoot them like arrows without showing any signs of exhaustion.
Memory Alteration: He also has the ability to manipulate the memories of people such as when he erased all knowledge of the fact that he created 300 duplicates of Issei from the students of Kuoh Academy in Volume 8, through a device created by the Grigori.
Immense Speed: Azazel is capable of moving at God-like speed.
Immense Durability: Azazel showed no reaction at all when he had to cut off his left arm after it was entangled by Katarea Leviathan's self-destruct spell thus demonstrating high pain tolerance. He was even able to take a surprise attack from Vali Lucifer and emerged relatively unharmed during the latter's betrayal at the interrupted conference.
Flight: Being a Fallen Angel, Azazel can fly using his wings.
