Balthasar Images

Balthasar (バルタザール Barutazāru) is one of the three members of the Grigori: the supreme advisors of the True Cross Order. He stands in for Armumahel, one of the Sol and the three founders of the Order.

Appearance[]

Though his appearance is greatly shielded by the hooded ornament that he wears, Balthasar has the appearance of a middle-aged male. Beneath the garments, Balthasar wears dark robes; from the ornament dangles a mint-green veil that is parted, giving one the view of Balthasar's mouth, only.[1][2]

Synopsis[]

Training Camp arc[]

Balthasar and the rest of the Grigori act as overseers for Mephisto's trial; he then listens silently as Mephisto asks him and the other Grigori to make a wager with him about how Rin will turn out: savior of Assiah or Demon King of Gehenna. However, after listening to Rin's outburst and Mephisto's claim, Balthasar and the other Grigori prevent Arthur from executing the boy and allow him to live under the condition that he pass the Exorcist Qualification Exam in six months time, among many others.[3]

True Cross Academy Festival arc[]

Balthasar and the other Grigori are later present during Arthur and Lightning's account of what happened in Yemen, where they learn of the Demon Eater and the problems they could potentially bring up in the world. He remains silent as Casper reduces Rin's execution to a suspension.[4] Balthasar and his two other compatriots are later visited by Lucifer's Seraphim and hear the words he has to speak.[5] However, the Seraphim at his location explodes,[6] but he and the other Grigori members are saved by Arthur.[7]

Trivia[]

  • In the anime, he was given the name Balthasar, as he had not yet been given a name in the manga at the time.
  • In the anime, Balthasar wears the robes of Shemihaza's representative.
