RIN OKUMURA - AO NO EXORCIST: Rin Okumura (奥村 燐, Okumura Rin) is the fifteen-year-old protagonist of the story. He is a son of Satan, born from a human woman and is the inheritor of Satan's powers. 

His powers were sealed at birth into the demon-slaying blade Kurikara (倶利伽羅) by Mephisto Pheles, the True Cross Academy principal, allowed him to live a normal human life for nearly 15 years with his twin brother Yukio and his foster father Shiro Fujimoto. 

Rin becomes aware of his true identity after Kurikara can no longer seal his powers, setting off a chain of events that lead to the death of Shiro at the hands of Satan, who attempts to drag Rin back to the demon realm, Gehenna. Mephisto Pheles later confronts Rin, who demands that Mephisto let him join the exorcists to fight against the demons.[ch. 1] 

Mephisto Pheles — the director of True Cross Academy—personally enrolls Rin into the True Cross Academy so that Rin can pursue his goal to obtain the title of "Meister" in Knight, then become a Paladin and defeat Satan.[ch. 2] 

He also wants to earn Yukio's respect. While currently an Esquire, Rin wishes to obtain the highest rank of an Exorcist, Paladin, to prove Fujimoto did not want to use him as a weapon. Rin is also a good cook, preparing meals for himself and Yukio.

Rin can access the power he has inherited from Satan through drawing Kurikara.[ch. 2] The sheath acts as a portal to Gehenna, which, when the blade is drawn, returns Rin to his demon form. While in his human form, Rin exhibits a number of physical traits that are signs of his demonic nature that are intensified in the demon forms. 

In both forms, Rin can control incredibly destructive bright blue flames, the trademark sign of anything related to Satan. However, when he draws Kurikara, the magnitude of the flames dramatically increases and often leads to Rin being "consumed" by his own flames and losing his mind.[ch. 9] 

Rin later meets a spirit named Kongo Ucchusma who teaches him how to control his flames (in the anime, this was changed to Shura and Yukio who helped him).[ch. 32] Rin also has a Cat Sith, Kuro, who was initially Shiro's, as his familiar, and it has 2 tails like a nekomata.[ch. 8] 

When Yukio awakened Satan's power in his eyes and shot him, the demon part of Rin awakens and for a moment takes over his body and nearly kill his friends when he unleash the full power of Satan's flame until Rin takes back control. The resulting awakening caused Rin's appearance to change to similar in appearance with his demonic self.

Rin is voiced by Nobuhiko Okamoto in Japanese and by Bryce Papenbrook in English, while in VOMIC he is voiced by Daisuke Namikawa. In the Blue Exorcist musical, he was portrayed by Ryou Kimura.

The truth about Rin and Yukio’s parents is much more tragic and heartbreaking than you might expect. However, none of them are as ridiculous and tragic as the lineage of the main characters themselves, Rin and Yukio Okumura. 

Quite early on in the series, we already know that the Okumura brothers are the sons of a normal human mother. It is their father, however, that is quite surprising. Because their dad is none other than Satan himself.

That alone is already quite shocking. What most people may not realize, however, is how devastating the real story about their parents actually is. This article will unveil the true story of Rin and Yukio’s parents. The anime and manga each take different approaches to their origin story, but this article will stick to the manga.

Who is The Okumura Brothers?

RIN OKUMURA - AO NO EXORCIST: Rin and Yukio Okumura are fraternal twin brothers who choose to follow the step of their adoptive father, Shiro Fujimoto. So they become exorcists and dedicate themselves to save people from the danger of demons.

Unbeknownst to Rin, however, Yukio has already become an exorcist years before Rin even thinks about such a decision. As a result, although Rin is technically the older brother between the two, Yukio is his superior when it comes to being an exorcist. 

After all, when this article is written, Yukio has already become a Paladin, the highest rank an exorcist can attain, while Rin is still an Exwire, basically just a student-exorcist.

Although the brothers hate their biological father with the burning rage of a thousand suns, both of them can still harness Satan’s power to some extent. Out of the two, Rin is the one that inherits the power of the blue fire from his father. 

Which is why whenever he unleashes that power, a pair of horns and a tail made out of blue flame will appear on his body. As for Yukio, he is more or less a normal human. However, his left eye is connected to Satan and when activated, whether he wanted to or not, Satan will be able to see through Yukio’s body and force his will on him.


What is the Gainax Pose?

RIN OKUMURA - AO NO EXORCIST: Unbeknownst to anybody, Satan manages to possess one of the failed clones of the Order that is pretty much identical to Shiro. Since Yuri is the only human that has been with Satan for years, he demands to be with her all the time or else he threatens to kill every human that he sees. And that is how Yuri and Satan ended up spending time together. 

Through their interaction, Yuri begins to think that Satan is truly capable of compassion and can be taught to be kind to human beings. And as she opens up her heart to him, and the fact that he looks identical to the man that she loves, the inevitable thing happens, and she ends up getting pregnant with Satan’s child.
