Kurou Daijuuji is the protagonist of Demonbane. He was enrolled as an archaeology student at the Miskatonic University but used this as a cover for his true major in sorcery under the tutelage of Dr. Henry Armitage. During an attempt to break into the library to read one of the forbidden grimoires, he was attacked by Wilbur Whateley and almost killed, causing him to distance himself from the occult and drop out of the university entirely. He continued to work as a private investigator but was financially poor until the day he was hired by the Hadou Financial Group to acquire a grimoire. In his search, he encounters Al-Azif and circumstances force him into a contract with her, becoming the pilot of the imitation Deus Machina, Demonbane (デモンベインDemonbein?). Kurou has a strong sense of justice and morality, claiming that there is no rationale behind his desire to aid and protect others beyond the fact that it would leave him with lingering regrets if he simply abandoned them, a feeling that he describes as "a bad aftertaste". After encountering the inhumanity of Master Therion, he comes to hate the man with a passion, fuelling his determination to destroy the BlackLodge

Weaknesses: Genuine Sorcerers like Kurou relies on Grimoires to achieve magick, therefore, should he lose Al Azif in someway, he'll lose the ability to use magick. | None Notable

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Magick: Magick is the act of manipulating magical power/energy which encompasses all through own pure will. By borrowing the power of gods from different worlds, they can exercise this power, rewriting the laws of the world with their own imposed law, creating different miracles. To use it however, genuine Sorcerers require Grimoires, just like how scientist requires computers capable of high-speed calculations.
  • Grimoire: Books containing various information about spells and gods that give power to their users. It is a dangerous weapon in the hands of inexperienced persons. There exist those Grimoires, whom due to their high-ranking order, have their own will and soul, are capable on taking on human forms. Those with high magical power are capable of calling upon the “Deus Ex Machina”. Kurou Daijuuji holds the Necronomicon, Al Azif, as his Grimoire.
  • Shining Trapezohedron: As the manifestation of the good of humanity, Kurou was given the other half of Shining Trapezohedron to him by Nyarlathotep. It has been revealed that this sword has been used to seal the Court of Chaos alongside their king Azathoth. Converting an infinite amount of universes into a barrier that is used as a seal to hold down the evil gods. At first, Kurou was incapable of using it, manifesting once during his fight against Tiberius during Al Azif route to seal the Necromancer without its wielder consent. Later, during his final clash against Master Therion, he gained enough knowledge and power to summon it with his own will. Those that wield this double-edged sword are passively protected from harm by a barrier that desintegrates anything that comes in contact with them. Additionally, anything struck with this sword is sealed with no hope of escaping ever again. This artefact is so powerful, that not even Nyarlathotep can touch it.
