Akim Papradon is the reanimated corpse of the demon Pantomine, brought back to life by the efforts of Frankenstine. Frankenstine created Akim while attempting to create the perfect Hybrid Demon. Much like the monster of Mary Shelly's famous novel, Akim is a patchwork of different corpses stitched together. His true form is that of a spirit possessing the cobbled together body though and is nearly impossible to kill. In the Final arc of Blood Lad Akim absorbs the Maryoku of Hellschaft Grimm, the first King of Makai, the demon world. After this he becomes immensely more powerful and nearly takes over the whole demon world. He claims that great power is beautiful and seeks ever stronger parts to make himself stronger and therefore more beautiful.

Intelligence: Akim is a skilled CQC fighter and can instinctually use all the parts of his cobbled together body with perfect synchronicity.
Weaknesses: None Notable
Notably Enhanced Powers:
- Possession: Attempting to absorb Hellschaft's Maryoku will just result in the absorber being possessed by Hellschaft's consciousness, and after merging with Akim this makes Hellschaft nearly impossible to permanently destroy and would require the complete destruction or erasure of his Maryoku.
- Necromancy: Akim, after absorbing Hellschaft's Maryoku, has so much excess that he can deposit large amounts of it into other corpses and basically create new undead creatures that are extremely devoted to him. These "children" of his should all be around 8-C and possess the following abilities - Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Maryoku Manipulation (Maryoku functions similarly to Chi, exists in place of a Soul and fuels a demon's Magic), Regeneration (High-Low) (can pull removed body parts back together) and Immortality (Types 2, 3, 6 and 7). Two examples would be Kelly and Burgundy.
- Portal Creation: Eventually Akim no longer needed his rings to make portals.
