Shemhazai is the current Governor General of the Fallen Angels and Grigori, succeeding Azazel who previously held the position. He is also close friends with Azazel and Baraqiel.


Shemhazai has the appearance of a handsome man in his twenties, with silver-white hair and purple eyes. His outfit consists of a purple beret hat, purple trench coat over a black vest, white pants and black boots. Being the Governor General of the Fallen Angels and Grigori, Shemhazai possesses ten black wings.


Shemhazai is extremely loyal to Azazel, being one of his best friends. Despite so, Shemhazai doesn't hesitate to punish Azazel when he does something stupid.


Like the rest of the leaders of the Fallen Angels, Shemhazai lost his place in the Fifth Heaven after having sex with a human woman and became a Fallen Angel as punishment from God. He then joins the Grigori, an organization created by Azazel mainly for the Fallen Angels. Shemhazai is one of the survivors of the Great War and has since assisted Azazel in reforming Grigori and his Sacred Gear research. He married a Devil woman at some point before the series and is expecting to have a child soon.


The Red Dragon Emperor's AwakeningEdit

Shemhazai was mentioned by Raynare in Volume 1, alongside Azazel.

Birth of the Breast Dragon EmperorEdit

Shemhazai appears in Volume 4 when Azazel was contacting him and warns him that there were subordinates who didn’t think too kindly of the peace treaty that Azazel formed with the Angels and Devils. Azazel, however, shrugs away Shemhazai's worries and asked about Shemhazai's unborn child, telling Shemhazai to take good care of his wife and child, believing that Shemhazai's child will become the bridge between Devils and Fallen Angels.

In Volume 7, Shemhazai contacted Issei after sending Genshirou Saji to the battlefield. He explained how Saji received three more of Vritra's Sacred Gears and that he was unstable in his new form.

The Heroic Oppai DragonEdit

At the end of Volume 12, Shemhazai was promoted to the Governor General of Grigori after Azazel stepped down from his post.
