Igor has brown, long hair, as well as pale skin. He wears an eye-patch over his left eye, which was burned out during the Blue Night when he was possessed by Satan. He wears the standard Exorcist uniform, a full black coat with black pants. He also keeps bandages on his fingers and arms, which contain summoning tattoos underneath.
In the filler arc, he is seen without his Exorcist cloak, instead wearing casual clothes. This was simply a blue shirt with a tan jacket and pants.
Due to being possessed by Satan during the Blue Night, Igor lost his left eye to Satan's blue flames, as well as his family when he killed them under Satan's influence. Because of this, he hates Satan immensely, as well as any Demons related to Satan. He seems to believe that as Satan's son, Rin can only be evil at heart and must be destroyed no matter what. Ironically, he is extremely loyal to Mephisto, another one of Satan's sons, and was able to put aside his hatred for Rin and stop attacking him when Mephisto asked him to.
HistoryEditDuring the time of the Blue Night, he was possessed by Satan for a moment and used to kill his own family. Unlike other victims of Satan's possessions, he survived. Due to that only his left eye was possessed at the time. This has caused him to despise anything related to Satan, including Rin.
True Cross Academy arcEditDuring the Exwire exam he is the one that summon a Naberius to attack the candidates but without any official order he focuses his attacks on Rin only to see his blue flames. After the exam he has a little discussion with Yukio where he justifies his actions saying that he won't truly kill him, and he was executing his "orders". The night after he tries again to kill Rin while he was sleeping but his intercepted by Yukio who with the help of Shiemi moves Rin (who is still sleeping) in another room. Igor and Yukio start to fight, after distracting Yukio with some lower Ghouls he summons his strongest Naberius but just when Yukio is in trouble Rin comes to the rescue and together they defeat him. Refusing to lose, he attacks Rin who decides not to dodge, but tells Igor that if he has grudges against him because of Satan, that it's fine, but not to attack his friends. Igor, shocked, says that this isn't enough and leaves but not before saying to Rin that there are apparently a lot of people like him that want Rin dead, especially among the Exorcists. After that he's seeing secretly reporting to Mephisto, revealing that he was following his orders.
Some time after this he departs from the school and his role is taken by Shura.
