It’s good having a mysterious atmosphere because it seems devilish. Oh, sorry. Nice to meet you, Sekiryuutei-dono. I have heard rumours about you.

–Ajuka introducing himself to Issei Hyoudou, Volume 8, Extra Life. The Fun Family of the Gremory

Ajuka Beelzebub, formerly known as Ajuka Astaroth, is the current leader of the Underworld and the only Satan left after the events of the Evil Dragon War. He is the Chief Advisor for the Technology Department and the creator of the Evil Pieces system and the Rating Game. He is the former heir to the Astaroth Clan and comes from the branch family of the Astaroth Clan.

Appearance

Ajuka is a bewitchingly beautiful and attractive young man appearing in his early twenties, with light blue eyes and green hair that is slicked back. He has a mysterious aura around him which he claims makes him seem devilish.

Personality

Ajuka is a rare person among Devils who “creates”, preferring to create new things and claiming that it is one of his hobbies. Ajuka, however, doesn’t care much about the role as a Satan, focusing more on his hobby over his job, and also has a easy going nature like his fellow Satans. Despite this, Ajuka isn't irresponsible and will fulfill his role as a Satan when required, proven when he kills the Devils of the Old Satan Faction and creating a method to defeat the Jabberwocky and Bandersnatch to protect the Underworld.

He also possesses a dry sense of humor towards his enemies, particularly from the Old Satan Faction, as he called "praises" all discrimination and criticizes that the Devils from the Old Satan Faction throw at him, and tends to mocks his enemies if he deems them worthless.

Ajuka highly values his friendship with Sirzechs, Serafall and Falbium. According to him, whoever becomes Sirezchs' enemy will also become his. He even upright told Shiva, an immensely powerful God to not hinder Sirzechs to which Shiva just simply laughed. After his fellow Satans sealed themselves away in the Isolation Barrier with Trihexa, Ajuka resolved to shoulder their respective duties and watch over the Devils in their place on account of their friendship. He is still a kind and caring person, as he helps Issei and the Gremory team with their various problems.

History

A member of a branch family of the Astaroth clan, Ajuka is Sirzechs Lucifer's childhood friend and rival. Like Sirzechs, he was also an ace of the Anti-Satan Faction and became a Satan after the conflict between the Old Satan Faction and Anti Satan Faction came to an end. Sometime after being a Satan, Ajuka created the Evil Piece system to help replenish the number of Devils which eventually lead to the creation of the Rating Game.

In fact, he, Sirzechs and Rizevim are three Devils considered Super Devils with their powers and abilities exceeding that of the original Four Great Satans and rivaling some of the more powerful gods. This was shown when he easily disposed of the Old Satan Faction devils, which consisted of High-Class and Ultimate-Class Devils (who enhanced themselves through unknown means), all while sitting. Zeoticus has stated that Ajuka and Sirzechs' immense power made it so that there was no position worthy for them besides being Satans.

    • King Pieces: Rare Evil Pieces, which were created in the early days of the Rating Games by Ajuka but discontinued in production due to the potential danger from evil people misusing them.

Ajuka managed to reclaim all of them after their existence was exposed by Diehauser Belial.
