–Masaomi to Issei Hyoudou, Volume 18, Life.4 Burn, Holy-sword!


Masaomi Yaegaki was a member of the Protestant Church and a subordinate of Touji Shidou.


Masaomi was a man with long black hair.


Masaomi was deeply in love with the High-Class Devil Cleria Belial. Because that love was forbidden, they were both killed. After being revived by Rizevim, Masaomi was highly vengeful, extremely focused on getting revenge on all his former comrades who betrayed him as well as Devils who were related to the Bael clan for their part in Cleria's death. This was shown in his first battle where he injured Touji Shidou with Yamata no Orochi's deadly poison and ended up having tears of joy.

After losing in the battle in Heaven, Masaomi was freed from the influence of the Evil Dragon and has stopped fighting. Before being killed by Rizevim, he and Issei come to terms that they both love Devil women despite being humans.


Masaomi was in an ongoing romantic relationship with Cleria Belial, a High-Class Devil who governed Kuoh Town at the time. Their relationship was considered forbidden at the time, and because of that, his superiors; such as Touji Shidou, were forced to kill him and his lover to maintain the status quo.

He was resurrected by Qlippoth with the use of the Holy Grail and given the Holy sword; Ame no Murakumo no Tsurugi, which was fused with the Yamata no Orochi's soul to exact his revenge.[1]
