Before becoming an Exorcist, the individual begins as a Page, learning the most basic elements of exorcism and Demonology.
A rank that is above a Page. To become an Exwire, a Page must pass the Exwire Authorization Exam. The exam consists of the Pages secretly being put to a test of defeating a Demon by working together; the exam also tests which Meister a Page categorizes in. Exwires usually do menial jobs like cleaning a Demon's cage, and helping to collect samples, etc. However, they still study Demonology, a study of demons to know their category, strengths and weakness and a way to counter them.
MeisterEditEssentially the most basic qualification for any aspiring Exorcist, the term meister refers to the particular combat skill(s) an Exorcist possesses. While many choose to specialize in only one area of combat, it is possible to obtain a meister in more than one category. There are five categories of meister:
- Main article: Tamer
Exorcists who can summon and control Demons to fight. These Demons are called 'familiars '. In order to summon a familiar, a magic circle is needed; it can be drawn on the ground or on paper, or even tattooed onto the Exorcist's skin (As Demonstrated by Igor Neuhaus ). The meister then draws their blood onto the magic circle and recites any words that come into mind. However, if the magic circle is erased or torn (on paper), it loses its effect and the familiar disappears. It has been noted that the talent to be a Tamer is rare, since sheer spiritual fortitude is needed to tame the Demon; natural talent is also essential. However, if the Tamer lacks confidence, the familiar will attack the meister. Tamers can summon more than one familiar at a time and multiple Tamers may summon a single powerful Demon.
- Main article: Knight
A meister who uses a sword to fight. Meisters that have the title of "Knight" are shown to use Demon blades as their weapons. So far most Knights seen are quite formidable and skilled.
- Main article: Dragoon
Meisters that fight using guns. Dragoons are notable in that they fight using modern weaponry as compared to the Knights and Aria. Within this field, Exorcists can fight using anything from handguns to rifles.
- Main article: Aria
Many Demons have weak points known as a "Fatal Verse", in which an Exorcist recites a specific passage from holy scripts that causes their death. An Aria fights by finding a Demon's "Fatal Verse" and recites holy texts effectively, ranging from the Bible to other holy scriptures. Arias must have a talent in memorizing, however they are completely defenseless; as soon as they begin to recite the Demon's "Fatal Verse", the Demon will attempt to attack the meister to stop the recital.
- Main article: Doctor
A meister who has the knowledge to heal wounds and injuries inflicted by Demons.
