Hokushin was a Low S-class demon who lived in Raizen's country.
For centuries he served as Raizen's General and right hand man, his skill and wisdom being held in high regard by the Upper S-class king. In the months before Raizen's demise, he and his Upper A-class Lieutenants brought Yusuke to the demon world to not only meet Raizen, but also to train for a potential war against Yomi and Mukuro. By the end of Yusuke's training, the boy had progressed from Low S-class to Upper S-class and Hokushin had become very good friends with him.

Weaknesses: Hokushin tends to move his head far away from his body and thus leave his body wide open for an attack, this weakness, however, is very hard to detect as not even his strongest allies could detect this weakness before, Hokushin also commented that no matter how many times he stretches his head around he still gets dizzy (this could be another weakness that he may have)
- Hokushin has shown the ability to stretch his body to amazing lengths.
- Hokushin has also shown the ability to create inanimate objects out of thin air. However, the objects he can create are determined by the amount of demon energy he has. An example of this can be found when Hokushin is in the human world and his powers are sealed by a device he has on his chest. While his powers were sealed Hokushin could only create harmless objects such as paper flowers and toy knives.
