Rudiger Rosenkreutz is a reincarnated Devil, former Human Magician and a former member and the founder of the Magician Association, "Rosenkreutzer". He is ranked 7th in the Rating Games.
Rudiger is a man appearing in his twenties with silver hair and has deep green eyes which give off an endless sort of feeling, who appears to be from Northern Europe.
Rudiger's mannerisms are like an art form to which his body exudes a sense of dignity, giving him strong stateliness. He is highly intelligent, able to discern things almost immediately and give professional advice.
Rudiger is a very kind-hearted man as his shared wish with Dulio Gesualdo for the winning the Rating Game World Tournament, is to stop children from being born with Sacred Gears that will affect them negatively like what happened to his son and many other children dying from possessing a Sacred Gear. Rudiger sees Dulio as the best Angel in his eyes, for what he did for his son and holds a great deal of respect for him.
Rudiger became the Bishop for the Head of the Extra Demon House, Mammon. He was a sorcerer who didn't have any amazing feats until he was reincarnated into a Devil. He was simply a high-level sorcerer when he was a human. He made several achievements and eventually became a high-class Devil. Eventually, he got to the Top 10 of the Rating Games very quickly and this spawned heroic tales of his defeats of stronger teams.
Rudiger had difficulty in making a child, though he finally had a son. His son was born with a Sacred Gear which was killing him. His son's hero was Dulio. He wanted to see Dulio. Rudiger had no connection with Heaven so he mostly gave up on it. He still sent a letter to the Underworld headquarter despite thinking that Dulio won't come. But after a few days, Dulio came to meet his son. His son was happy. Dulio came and visited his son frequently. Even after his son died he visited his grave. After seeing Dulio cry for his son, Rudiger was so moved that he himself couldn't stop crying.
