An Exorcist (
Becoming an Exorcist
To become a qualified exorcist, some basic conditions must be met, the acquisition of a Meister and the passing of a certification exam.
- Main article: Meister
Essentially the most basic qualification for any aspiring Exorcist, the term Meister refers to the particular combat skill(s) an Exorcist possesses. There are five different classes of Meister in which individual can become qualified; the Knight, an Exorcist who uses a melee weapon; the Dragoon, an Exorcist who uses Firearms; the Tamer, an Exorcist who summons demon familiars; the Aria, an Exorcist who chants sacred verses; and the Doctor, an Exorcist who heals injuries and illnesses caused by demons.
The rank of an Exorcist is determined by the class and level of demon the exorcist managed to defeat by themselves during the certification exam. The demon's class determining the rank of the exorcist (Upper, Middle, Lower), and its level determining their status (First or Second).
In the anime, it's suggested that Paladins are allowed to choose a new uniform with the color of their choice, given Arthur wears a modified white uniform and Yukio wore a green version of his normal uniform.

Before becoming an Exwire, the individual begins as a Page, learning the most basic elements of exorcism and Demonology. To become an Exwire, a Page must pass the Exwire Authorization Exam. The exam consists of both written tests and a field test, which determines the class' overall combat abilities and teamwork skills.
