Rias Gremory (リアス・グレモリー)Height: 172 cm (5'8")
Rank: Top-class Devil
Race: Pure blooded Devil
Power: Power of destruction
First Appearance: Volume 1
A 12th grade student and the prettiest girl in the academy. Comes from the old noble of pure devils, the house of Gremory, a top-class devil who is called a genius nicknamed "Crimson Ruin Princess". Her brother is in fact one of the Yondai-Maou, Lucifer. Both of them possess the power of destruction. She revives Issei as her servant after finding him dead, killed by a fallen-angel and possessing a rare Sacred Gear.
From her mother, Rias has inherited the Bael Clan's Power of Destruction. This power allows her to release energies that can disintegrate matter, both living and inanimate, with relative ease. Opponents who wield sufficiently greater power, however, can shield themselves from this.
The way the afterlife is portrayed differs from culture to culture, but there are always certain recurring themes. Many of these tales feature monstrous demons, yet the anime demon girls of today are a bit different in often kickass and sometimes (well, always) sexy ways.
