Origin

Rin Okumura (奥村 燐, Okumura Rin) is a 15-years old protagonist who is also the son of Satan, born from a human woman who inherited Satan's powers. Rin had a pretty sad history where people always shunned him for his rebellious behavior, often calling him a demon to which he always repudiated. Fujimoto takes responsibility by taking care of Rin and Yukio. His true self is the demon itself, yet his body is human. The Demon powers choose him and rejected Yukio, knowing that Rin was stronger than Yukio. He and Yukio lived with Fujimoto in the abbey where Fujimoto became his foster father. Yet, Rin lived life without knowing he was a demon. After he learned that he was a demon and after witnessing the killing of his father Fujimoto by Satan, he made it his ultimate goal to become an Exorcist and defeat the Devil himself with the help of Mephisto, the principal of the True Cross Academy, and his twin brother, Yukio.

Story Arcs

Intro Arc (Episodes 1-2)

After beating up Shirotaro and his buddies for terrorizing the birds, Rin returns home with a scuffed up look and bruises. When his father asks him what happen, he attempts to lie to his father by falling down the stairs on a beautiful lady. Yet, his father knows the truth. Yukio appears to tend his wounds, and Rin notices Yukio is moving away due to the boxes. His brother tells him that he is moving to the True Cross Academy, and he tells Rin that he is concerned about Rin's well being such as taking a job to support himself. A priest appears and gives Rin a tip about a job offer at the market. Right off the bat, Rin finds himself going to the job interview. Before leaving, Rin spots his father consoling a little girl. His father notices Rin has trouble tying his tie, and he teaches Rin how to do it. Even though Rin tells his father that he is a grown man, Fujimoto tells him that he sees no grown man.

At the market, Rin struggles to do anything right, but everything breaks on him. Yet, Rin's excellent cooking skills earns the boss's respect, and he gets the job. After he tells his family the good news, he spots a demon harassing the little girl who his father tend to. Rin chases after the demon who has the girl's ribbon. In the chase, Rin damages the store's inventory; as a result, he gets fired. Back at home, the girl's father thanks Rin for saving his daughter's life. After hearing that the girl's father blames his daughter for bad stuff, Father Fujimoto tells the man to trust his daughter and not to blame her. Before the girl leaves, Fujimoto gives her a four leave clover for protection against bad spirits. He tells Rin to stay in the house.

Despite his father's warnings, Rin goes outside where he encounters Shirotaro and his friends. Shirotaro tries to bribe Rin with money to cover up his crimes. When Shirotaro mocks Rin's brother, Rin attacks him. This causes Astaroth to possess Shirotaro. Astaroth grabs a hot branding iron to teach Rin a lesson. (see anime/manga differences) Rin's blue fires spark out to protect Rin. Astaroth shocks Rin when he tells Rin that he is Satan's son. However, Fujimoto appears to exorcise Astaroth.
