"Sorry about yesterday. We were just playing with the pigeons, but my hand acted out on its own..."
Reiji has very pale purple hair that almost looks white, it is cut short and styled shaggy. He has very beady eyes and three facial piercings, one is through his lower-lip on the right side and two are at the inner corners of his eyebrows.
Reiji is seen wearing a long-sleeve collared shirt with a single color checkerboard pattern with faded red squares with dark red borders. Underneath the red checkered shirt he wears a plain white shirt that he wears tucked into his jeans. On top of the red checkered shirt he wears a dark blue body warmer with red shoulders and pocket borders.
He wears black skinny jeans and a brown belt with a silver buckle. He also wears a small silver chain hanging around his right thigh.
Reiji is a smug delinquent gang leader and likes troubling others. He is very sadistic, killing innocent animals just for the fun of it. Due to his evilness he was further possessed by Astaroth, the King of Rot.
In contrast with his delinquent personality, Reiji actually comes from a well-to-do family.
Following Astaroth being exorcized from his body, Reiji has been noted to be like a different person; acting more polite and dignified. However, he has displayed episodes of relapse back to his delinquent ways.
True Cross Academy arc
He is first shown shooting pigeons with a crossbow, but Rin beats him and his gang members off before they can do anymore damage.
Seeking revenge, Reiji seeks out Rin the next day and leads him to an abandoned court. Rin says that he doesn't want any trouble, but after Reiji insults Rin's younger twin brother Yukio--by trying to give Rin money to help Yukio pay for his school--Rin becomes infuriated and punches Reiji. Reiji's companions grab him and press him to the floor. At this point, Reiji is already possessed by Astaroth but only begins transforming now. Reiji grows horns, sharp teeth, nails and a tail. After Astaroth threatens to hurt Rin, Shiro appears and exorcizes Astaroth, leaving Reiji's body.
Reiji is treated by his friends and when he regains consciousness, he remembers what happened and lets his emotions get the best of him, which allows Astaroth to possess him yet again. Astaroth goes to Shiro's church in Reiji's body and begins to fight the Exorcists. When he transforms into his real form, he is eventually defeated and exorcized once again. Reiji's body is injured and then treated by the Exorcists.
