AppearanceEditAfter absorbing Karura, Saburōta now looks like a young adult instead of a middle-aged man. This could be contributed by the fact that Karura is like the Phoenix and hence gave him youth. At the same time, Saburōta also has wing-like growth near his ears around his cheeks area and enlarged canines and his pupils have become dilated or slit-like. He also does not wear spectacles anymore after it was destroyed partially. He has dark spiky hair with a light tuft protruding from his right side. He now wears a light button-upped coat with a belt.
When he was an Exorcist he wore the distinctive black Exorcist coat over a short-sleeved shirt and a stripy tie. In his previous Demon form, he has dark furry feline-like ears with horns protruding from his forehead. After coming in contact with the left eye of the Impure King, one of his eyes have become host to Impure King's left eye. This has now changed after the Impure King awoke.
Saburōta is a rather sadistic person. He will manipulate anyone in order to achieve his goals. He seems to have no qualms in killing people too. He turns sour towards anything relating to family relationships because of his past.
When Saburōta was young, he consistently tried to do his best in his work as a way to impress his two older brothers and gain recognition from his family members. However, it seems that his older brothers outdid him even more. This led to him being treated differently by his family and a strong hatred towards his older brothers and family members grew because of it. This was the reason he began having ill sentiments about Exorcists and ended up joining forces with the Illuminati.
The Impure King arcEdit
Saburōta was first shown as another Exorcist sent out to retrieve back the Left Eye of the Impure King. He chases after the culprit, who took a young curious boy as a hostage. He and the other Exorcists corner the culprit. The culprit reveals the Left Eye he had stolen and Saburōta tries to stop him. Joined by Shura, Yukio, and Rin, he explains what happened to the culprit and the hostage. He panics, criticizing himself that the robbery of the Left Eye is the worst humiliation to the history True Cross. He wears a protective suit afterwards, citing his health and hence unable to join them. In the end he still decides to join them.
As Yukio found out that the Left Eye held by the culprit is faked, Saburōta kicks him in the head. Saburōta rips off his protective suit to reveal himself as a Demon. Yukio focuses his attention on the boy, and is kicked once again in the back of the head. He then tells Yukio, that he was once a lot like him and that he had become a Demon. He finally tells Rin and Yukio he was glad to talk to them and disappears into the shadows.
He made Yukio a decoy car which Yukio and his assistants followed, but he had stolen the Left Eye himself. He is then seen talking to Mamushi Hōjō on the top of Kyoto Tower, telling her it is the right time to steal the Right eye of the Impure King.
When Saburōta was about to kill Yukio, he stepped back (he claims he did so instinctively). Saburōta was surprised and delighted upon seeing Yukio's eyes glowing with blue flames and knew that there was more of Yukio than being just the twin of Rin. Just as he was about to say more about his 'plan' with Yukio, the other Exorcists arrive.
Powers & AbilitiesEditSaburōta has claimed the titles of Aria, Tamer and Doctor, but Saburōta has yet to show this. Because of Saburōta's Demon abilities, he has faster reflexes.
Saburōta is able to regenerate any injuries on his body at a fast speed, almost as fast as Rin's recovery speed.
Saburōta can manipulate the flames he acquired from Karura. He is shown throwing them in a knife-like form towards Yukio.
He has shown interest in Yukio, and has tried to implement certain ideas in his head which have been affecting him the few previous chapters. He implies that he has some sort of belief that Yukio will join him in the future, and thinks Yukio has great potential. He became even more interested in him when he showed that he possessed Satan's eyes.
She was apparently, alongside her current fiancee Jūzō Shima, a student of Saburōta Tōdō. He was able to recognize her fear of Satan. He used this by 'revealing' to her that he was afraid that Mephisto Pheles had plans to let Rin cause an second Blue Night. Because of this she stole the Right Eye of the Impure King to keep it out of the reach of the Demon. Later she learned the truth and was abandoned by him.
