Raidou Kuzunoha the XIV is the protagonist of the Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha series.
Raidou Kuzunoha the XIV is a young student of the Yumizuki High School who was trained in the Kuzunoha village in the art of the Devil Summoner. Once he was ready, he undertook the trials at the nameless shrine in the heart of the Shinoda mountains and became the fourteenth Raidou Kuzunoha. He was assigned a partner by the Herald of Yatagarasu named Gouto, a sarcastic talking cat who was to guide Raidou in the ways of a Devil Summoner, and was sent to work part-time at the Narumi Detective Agency as a cover for his true task.
As the newest Raidou Kuzunoha, it is his duty to protect the Capital from the demons of the Dark Realm, and ensure that the supernatural world is kept in check. His abilities with a katana are without equal amongst summoners, and his skill with a pistol is unmatched, but Raidou's true power comes from the demons tucked away in confinement tubes beneath his cape.
Raidou has appeared in various SMT titles, such as Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne, replacing Dante from the Devil May Cry series in the Chronicle edition of the game, as the character who hunts down the Demi-Fiend throught the Labyrinth of Amala(who later joins him in battle). He and Raido (His alternative universe counterpart) appear as the Ultimate Bosses in Soul Hackers.
