* NamesTheSame: Some fans mistake his name for a Japanese corruption of "al-Hazred", author of the ''Necronomicon''. This isn't the case: while he is Arabian, Azrad is a completely different character, and lives almost a thousand years later than al-Hazred.

The most powerful and legendary grimoire in existence, the ''Necronomicon'' itself, a grimoire so powerful that it has its own body and soul rather than simply being a book. Al Azif has been passed from sorceror to sorceror over the centuries as she constantly does battle against Evil. She latches onto Kurou as her latest master, and despite his inexperience as a sorceror, she soon takes a liking to him, moreso than any master she's had previously...

The machine the whole story is based around. Demonbane is a Deus Machina, designed to be used by a human sorceror and a grimoire. Demonbane is unique among Deus Machina in that it is not generated directly by a grimoire and was built through a combination of human technology and sorcery. It is repeated stated to be a Deus Machina built specifically for humanity, enabling them to fight back against horrors that they would otherwise be powerless against.

The founder and leader of Black Lodge. Referred to as the Beast or the Antichrist, and undisputably the most powerful sorceror in the world. He is so secretive that many believe his existence to be nothing but a myth. He tends to view everything going on around him with disinterest and extreme boredom. He serves as Kurou's rival and the primary antagonist of the story. His grimoire is Etheldreda, the ''Pnakotic Manuscripts'', and his Deus Machina is Liber Legis.

* TheArchmage: Best sorceror in the world. Period. It says something about his status when the Anticross, who generally are extremely selfish and powerful, will ''immediately'' obey any order he gives for fear of their lives.

The grimoire concerning all matters of Cthulhu and its ilk. Like Etheldreda and Al Azif, she takes the appearance of a young girl. Unlike the other grimoires, she is not bound to any sorceror and constantly seems to be in her own world.

An Anticross sorceror, dressed like a clown and constantly wearing a mask that changes expression depending on his mood. Tiberius is sadist, rapist, murderer, and all-around completely abhorrent person. His power primarily comes from the fact that he's immortal: his body is a constantly rotting corpse, but thanks to his sorcery he does not die no matter how much damage he takes. He wields the power of ''De Vermis Mysteris'', and his Deus Machina is Beelzebuth.

An Anticross sorceror modelling himself after the samurai. His greatest wish is to find a powerful opponent that can give him the battle of a lifetime, and is inhumanly skilled with his dual katana. He wields the grimoire ''Cultes de Goules'', and his Deus Machina is Ogre.

An Anticross sorceror, and one of the most senior members. Vespasianus prefers to manipulate things from the background and have underlings carry out tasks for him, though he isn't afraid of doing the dirty work himself if it's necessary. His grimoire is ''The Book of Eibon'' and his Deus Machina is Cykranosh.

An Anticross sorceror, Caligula is a huge man possessed of immense strength. He speaks very strangely, altering the emphasis of his words in odd places. He typically deals with sheer brute force, which he is certainly not lacking. Usually teamed up with Claudius. His grimoire is ''Cthaat Aquadingen'', and his Deus Machina is Kraken.

* TroublingUnchildlikeBehaviour: A 12-13 years old member of a cult of evil sorcerors whose way of speaking would put a sailor to shame. How's that for troubling and unchildlike?

** BadassGrandpa: He may be old, but he can still kick quite a lot of ass! Although he's taken off-guard by Claudius' power several times at first, the final time they fight he thoroughly schools the Anticross sorceror.

In secret, he is a sorceror and the original finder/builder of Demonbane. Everything he has done throughout his life has been for the sole purpose of preparing and using Demonbane against Liber Legis and Master Therion. For a grimoire, he uses a copy of the ''Necronomicon'', and he is able to pilot Demonbane to a certain extent, though not anywhere near its full power.

His grimoire is the ''Necronomicon'', and his Deus Machina is Aeon.

* AsLongAsThereIsOneMan: Of a sort. The characters like to say that if anyone ever needs Demonbane's help, and calls for it, it will come to fight, no matter what kind of evil threatens them. [[spoiler:This actually becomes true when Kurou and Al ascend to Elder God status alongside Demonbane, declaring they will fight evil forever, where ever and whenever it may appear.]]

* DestructiveSaviour: A major force for good though it may be, Demonbane tends to cause massive amounts of collateral damage whenever it fights. Even the act of ''summoning'' it usually knocks at least a few buildings down.



* {{Magitek}}: Most Deus Machina are pure magical constructs and drain the energy of their pilots as they fight. Demonbane's basic framework is man-made and runs off its own power source, eliminating the need for this.
* NotQuiteFlight: The massive shin-guard things on its legs are the "Chain Severing Systems, Timaeus and Critias". They can warp spacetime and release massive amounts of force in bursts. Demonbane can use this to boost its jump height enormously as well as "jump" off of thin air or in vacuum. [[spoiler:Once it gets Shantak, it can fly freely with no restrictions.]] Demonbane can also use these to supercharge its kicks, a maneuver dubbed "Atlantis Strike".

* PerpetualMotionMachine: Demonbane's engine, the ''Cor Leonis'', is explicitly an infinite power source that never runs dry. This mainly serves to power the actual machinery though: Demonbane's magic attacks depend much more heavily on its pilot and grimoire.
