Characters: The Exorcist

Chris MacNeil (Ellen Burstyn)

Regan MacNeil (Linda Blair)

Father Damien Karras / Patient X (Jason Miller)

  • Back from the Dead: In part III, The Gemini Killer possesses him and makes him kill.
  • Big "NO!": Right before he jumps out of the window at the end.
  • Billing Displacement: Billed under Max von Sydow, despite being the character with the most screentime. This was likely because this was Miller's first film, and he was better known for his stage work at the time.
  • Supporting Protagonist: He is the titular Exorcist, not Merrin.
  • Crisis of Faith: Has this throughout the movie and regains it towards the end as he tries to save Regan.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: After begging for Pazazu to come into him instead and being momentarily possessed, Karras flung himself out the window to destroy it.
