Astaroth (アスタロト Asutaroto), also known as The King of Rot (腐の王 Kusa no Ō), is one of the Eight Demon Kings.
Astaroth looks like a possessed human wearing a dark suit. He covers his head with a paper bag, from which mushrooms are sprouting from the top and the mouth. That mask makes it impossible to know how old his body is. Years later, when appearing in the modern day, he no longer seems to have a human vessel, instead merely appearing as a patch of demonic mushrooms, one of which having four eyes.
Very little has been seen of Astaroth's personality thus far. He is a demon of few words. Upon meeting Satan, Astaroth bows to him, as Lucifer pledges their allegiance to their father. He will loyally follow and serve the Demon God.
Being on Lucifer's side, Astaroth works for Illuminati, though the extent of his contribution is unknown. When Satan arrives to Section 13, Astaroth is waiting at Lucifer's side with Iblis and Egyn. During the month long battle between the exorcists and Section 13, it is impied Astaroth fought off against the exorcists to protect Satan's resting place.
