Akeno Himejima


My my, ufufufufu...
~ Akeno's usual teasing laughter


Akeno Himejima is one of the main female protagonists of High School DxD, and a reincarnated Devil. Prior to becoming a Devil, she used to live with her mother, Shuri Himejima, and assist her in exorcising and purifying evil ghosts and spirits. However, this changed after her mother was killed, forcing her to fend for herself at a tender age and carve out a living by exorcising spirits. Due to her belief that her father abandoned her and her mother, she developed a hatred for him and cast aside her Fallen Angel heritage, refusing to acknowledge her powers. After being hunted down by the Himejima Clan and on the verge of being killed, she was rescued by Rias Gremory and allowed to go free after agreeing to certain conditions, subsequently becoming her closest friend. Later, she gets reincarnated as a Devil by Rias, becoming her first servant and Queen.
