Ruruko Nimura is a second-year high school student at Kuoh Academy and was formerly Sona Sitri's Pawn until she was traded to Xenovia’s peerage.


Ruruko is a short girl with brown hair in long twin ponytails and green eyes. She wears a pair of green clips in her hair and she also wears striped green stockings.


Ruruko had a crush on Genshirou Saji and had a love rivalry with her senior Momo Hanakai, who is also in love with Saji, until she later decided to let go of her love for Saji. She has a hot-headed personality like Xenovia, wanting to solve problems through violence, rather than negotiation. She also has a delinquent side to her, as shown when she calls Xenovia "Boss" in the tone of an underling from a gang.


Ruruko by chance, happened to learn about Sona and her peerage being devils and willingly asked to be reincarnated into her peerage. Sona did so and she joined the Student Council in the process. Her crush on Saji began when he started giving lots of help once he started doing Student Council work.

In Volume DX.4, Ruruko supported Saji's desire to battle against Issei, urging Sona to accept Saji's wish. During the match, Nimura used her Counter Balance to battle against Issei in Cardinal Crimson Promotion, as she taunted Issei into using his Dress Break as she stated that it won't work on her.

After Ravel that members of the Hidden Khaos Brigade who infiltrated Kuoh Town and leaked information to the enemy, Ruruko asked if there was the possibility of Hidden Khaos Brigade members lurking in the Gremory and Sitri households, which Ravel confirmed as Nimura wondered if Hidden Khaos Brigade leaked information to the Alliance of Hell. After hearing how easily Nebiros was able to breach the Kuoh Town barrier, Nimura said that the barrier is a piece of crap.

Second Year Students

Rukuro and her fellow second year students

As Ruruko and her fellow second year students and teachers gathered in the uninhabited forest of Iwashimizu Shrine to wait for their enemies to appear, Ruruko asked Ouryuu if he would go out with her as she explained that she gave up on pursuing Saji as a boyfriend, leaving him to Momo. Nakiri replied that he already has a fiancée who’s a part of the Kushihashi family from the Five Principal Clans and his desire to also take Millarca as his wife, which shocked Ruruko as she asked how that is possible due to him being Japanese, with Ouryuu explaining that as the next head of Nakiri, he is allowed to take 3 wives. When Ruruko asked if he was interested in taking her as his third wife, he revealed that he hates her to death, which shocked Ruruko as she complained about Ouryuu to Ravel and Koneko. Rukuro asked Ravel about how many girls does Issei have, Ravel confirmed it’s ten people and the number is increasing as Ruruko turned and sighed, as she wondered if Ingvild is also Issei's lover while stating that she cannot approach Yuuto due to him being too cute as she turned her attention to Gasper but was shocked and enraged that even he had someone important to him. As the second years began to battle the artificial Devils, Ruruko was shocked to realize that she was the only single person among the supernatural second year students, as she rushed into battle as she opted to search for a boyfriend another time, attacking the artificial Devils as she urged Ouryuu to transform into his Dragon Man form.

Rukuro reappeared in True Volume 4, where she was promoted to Middle-class Devil after the defeat of Hades and Angra Mainyu, and she was traded to part of Xenovia’s peerage, but Xenovia assures to Rukuro that she can return to Sona’s side.
