As the highest-ranking clan of the 72 Pillars, the Bael Clan is well known and famous for their Power of Destruction ability. They are also extremely prideful, looking down on other Devils and prefer to stick to the old tradition where demonic power determines everything, going as far as discriminating their own family members who don't possess any demonic powers.
The Bael Clan, excluding Sairaorg and people close to him, are hostile towards the Gremory Clan as their current generation have strongly inherited the Power of Destruction.
In Volume 18, the first head of the House of Bael, Zekram Bael , made his appearance. He told that he wants Sairaorg to became a Maou as he didn't inherit the Power of Destruction and only those who inherit it is allowed to become the head of the House. Zekram also said that the Four Great Satans are just symbols and the real leader of the Underworld is the head of the House of Bael. According to Zekram, Sairaorg's father, who is the current head of the Bael Clan, has a strong hatred of both Issei and Sairaorg as they are the strongest among the young devils despite Sairaorg not having the Power of Destruction and Issei being a reincarnated devil.
The castle of the Bael clan is robust and second to none amongst the various other territories. It is protected by more than fifty barriers cast over it and has boasted never to have been compromised, even during the civil war, until the events of Volume 21. The castle is home to Lord Bael and his family as it is the main residence that serves as the place of ruling. It has a courtyard planted with a revived, beautiful purple flower by the clan's botanist, Magdaran Bael, the second son of Lord Bael. The castle is defended by the Bael's elite guards who patrol the entirety of the castle, always ready to flock to their masters sides and protect them.
The clan emblem of the Bael consists a purple flower, reminiscing over the ones that grow throughout the Bael city.
