Exorcist rank chart

Rank Chart

An Exorcist (祓魔師 (エクソシスト)  Ekusoshisuto) is an individual with the abilities and training to combat Demons. Throughout the history of Assiah, there have been many different groups of Exorcists that protect humanity against these malevolent entities.


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.

Exwires (候補生 (エクスワイア)  Ekusuwaia) are student-Exorcists ranked directly above a Page. Exwires still attend classes and study to become Meisters, but are able to perform non-combat missions, such as maintenance and errand running.

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

A Meister is someone who has the knowledge to become an Exorcist. 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 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).[1]

Lower Rank

Lower Class (下級 Kakyū) or Junior exorcists. These are the lowest rank of qualified Exorcists. They will sometimes supervise Exwires on simple missions.[2]

Paladin (聖騎士 (パラディン)  Paradin) is the highest rank of Exorcist. There can only be one Paladin at a time and, typically, once an individual becomes the Paladin they keep the title until they are deceased. The appointment is exceedingly difficulty, with the minimum conditions being that they completely learn all five meisters.[3] 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.
