Ukobach (ウコバク Ukobaku) is Mephisto's familiar and a stove spirit who prepares Rin and Yukio's meals. He developed a close bond with Rin through their mutual love for cooking. He only appears in the anime.
Ukobach is a satyr-like Demon, appearing mostly in the form a cute little imp. He can transform into a larger minotaur and appears from thunder strikes for comedic effect. He has yellow eyes.
Ukobach is proud of his cooking skills, but also fiercely protective of his food and his domain, the dorm kitchen. As such he was enraged at Rin for using the dorm kitchen without his permission and for a while he refused to cook for the brothers. However, he bonded with Rin over a cooking battle, finding his skills equal to his own; together, they make the ultimate lunches. More than anything, Ukobach likes to make people happy with his cooking skills.
He is shown not to tolerate the food he cooks being disrespected. When three girls infatuated with Yukio break into the kitchen to sneak the lunches they made for him in the refrigerator, they toss out the lunch Rin helped Ukobach make under the mistaken assumption that it was made by Shiemi for Yukio. In retaliation, Ukobach attempted to cook them into a stew. However, Rin was able to convince Ukobach that it would be a bad idea as the "meal" wouldn't make any who ate it happy.
