Neo- Exorcist New Skill Cut In.gif

Be at ease. For my spirits and talismans will ward away evil...

The Priests training in temples of Suju who wield the Giant Weapon like an extension of their arm can handle a group of Imposters by themselves. They combine Suju's traditional shamanism with their exorcism art to command the spirits called shikigamis, strengthen their bodies, and use amulets in their battle against Imposters. Shinjang, an eighteen-year-old Exorcist who's also one of the Four Archpriests, is so talented that he can detect Imposters from a hundred miles away.

The Exorcist, versed in Suju's traditional incantations, banishes evil with his very words. He is particularly adept at wielding the battle axe and using holy amulets to deal even more damage over larger areas. By embodying the spiritual energy of Suju, the Exorcist benefits from the unique self-upgrading skills called chakras.

  • At level 50, the Exorcist awakens as a Hyperion. At level 75, the Hyperion awakens as a Draconid.
  • His subclass cosmetic effect is a chibi version of the Vermilion Bird Red Phoenix Amulet.png Red Phoenix Amulet spirit floating beside him.
  • His Neo Awakening cosmetic effect is the four aformentioned spirit creatures summoned around the Exorcist then transforming into colorful orbs.

Becoming an Exorcist

The Priest must first reach level 15.

Awakening as a Hyperion

To catch a tiger, one must enter the tiger's cave.

Those on the path of an Exorcist are destined to confront the many evils that are the core of all anguish, pain, and resentment in the world.

To be an Exorcist means to desire to purify this world of evil, whether they be human or spirit. And so the ancient spirits have long been the symbol of the will and power of the Exorcist.

For generations, the scholars of the Holy Order have been in pursuit of understanding the ancient scriptures, written about the Exorcist:

“All evil deities of this world or nether, shall entomb themselves within the energy of a true Exorcist, and will forever call him master.”

As the deeds of “Sinya” at the Dark Temple have proven, even myth can become reality. After years of deep ritual practicing, he began to glow with a bright blue aura. Many even say they began to see the faint image of two outstretched wings following him closely at all times. It became apparent that he had begun to wield the power of the Blue Dragon spirit.

As a master of spirits and keeper of the gates to the netherworld, the Hyperion holds the key to balance in his very hands. He does not hesitate to call upon the spirits under his control to bring about purity to the world.

The Hyperion Order fights for the day their blue energy cools the red-stained moon once again, and then they will know that the world has been purified.

The Exorcist must first reach level 50.

Awakening as a Draconid

Those who seek to obtain the divine power of the Lord must seek the Death Temple.
It's an ancient myth. It's something I've been told as a child when I was your age kiddo, so it's really an old story.
Although the story may differ by the teller or by region, one thing is certain. Hyperion's ultimate goal is to get to the Death Temple.
It has been said that many Hyperions have went on a journey to find the temple. My teacher was one of them, and he told me he had gone everywhere to find it.
But he came into this temple instead, thinking to just have a quick rest but ended up burying his bones here.
Anyhow, I am not sure how this story reached you...
But I shall tell you the story of Draconid. You've probably never heard of it yet.
Nobody knows the actual era of when this event occurred but there was once a man who achieved everything that a Hyperion can at a very young age.
He looked everywhere for a mentor who can teach him something new but could find nobody that was capable of doing so.
So he spent over ten years looking for the Death Temple, in order to reach the next level.
How excruciatingly long ten years must have been for such a young man?
After all those years, I am sure he was eager to find the damn place but you know, a lot of things don't go as planned.
So he made his return to Suju, disappointed and thinking that Death Temple was just a rumor.
And of course, after such a long journey, the return trip was not a short one.
One night, as he was travelling through the mountains, the night came and the darkness fell, and with no stars to light his way, he could not move forward.
While thinking what to do, he found a temple that was completely in ruins.
He entered the temple without much thought and while trying to fall asleep, an ominous energy woke him up immediately.
He found himself surrounded by a swarm of ghosts trying to take over his body.
Although tired and alone, the rumors about his strength did not prove to be untrue.
He fought alone what ten normal Hyperions can barely fight off.
He was very well deserving of his praise, that he is the best 'Hyperion' of the era.
But the fight had him completely exhausted and moving an inch seemed like an impossible task. As he was thinking that he was just going to die there, the sky lit up in gold and a giant dragon came straight towards him.
There was no way he could dodge it, so he closed his eyes and met his fate. But moments later, he opened his eyes only to find that he was in a grassland, a completely difference place.
A ghost's play, he thought to himself and he stood up immediately. Then, he felt uncontrollable strength and power growing within him, as if the dragon was giving him strength. What can this possibly be?
That's right, the golden dragon that came from the sky merged into his body. The ghosts that swarmed him in the temple was probably to test his strength and reapers probably lead him to the temple.
Thus, the one who withstood the test of the golden dragon was named 'Draconid.'
Yes, this is what us Hyperions must live to achieve.
So, hurry up and start training so you can get yourself noticed by the reapers, you lazy bum!
It's the only way into the Death Temple.

From [the story that Barren told his most beloved student Lache]

The Hyperion must first reach level 75.

Awakening as a Neo: Exorcist

I believed that I had passed all the tests.
Being recognized by the shikigami was the greatest enlightenment for an exorcist,
and borrowing from them the power to punish evil was the greatest reward.
When even the golden dragon had accepted him, how could he not be so sure of himself that he could purify all evil?

But he was now facing a great wall.
A wall so tall and strong, even the power of all the shikigami could not even make a dent.
Shikigami, lend me more strength. A greater strength. Resonate with me.
I need... more...

The heart he believed to be firm scattered, and the resonance with the shikigami shattered with a violent wave.
Those who are wanting cannot be accepted by the shikigami. Am I going back to how I was before their recognition?
If so I have no excuse for myself.
But as I let go of everything to accept everything, I heard their voice.

""Even burning justice weakens from the cold.""
""Even freezing calm melts from the flames.""

For the first time, I heard their voices. No, they've always been answering me,
but my narrow heart filled with arrogance refused to listen to them.

""It is natural for even one enlightened of all to kneel from one ignorance.""
""See not what is seen from outside.""

Emptying everything after hearing their voice, I could finally feel it filling up.
Only when I could see at the same height as the five shikigami, the enlightened sages that are the laws of nature itself,
I realized that I already had the power to pierce the wall deep within me.
And with renewed resonance I could feel the power to reform the world rise within me.

""With our true power fulfill the principle of one.""
""With the principle you shall face those who have abandoned it and been deemed evil.""

Evil is also part of all creations.
But if it's not a part of this principle of one... I shall bring them ruin with my own two hands.

The Draconid must first reach level 100.

Subclass Inspiration

  • The Exorcist's theme is heavily borrowed from East Asian mythology, although both the Physical & Magical motif varies between them:
    • The Physical Exo takes inspiration from Daoshi, who are essentially Priests of Taoism, while the Magical Exo resembles a Onmyōji, which are often portrayed as specialists in magic and divination on various Japanese media.
  • Each of his Awakening costumes are based around clothing that is traditionally worn by Taoists and Shaolin.
  • The spirit creature that follows him is themed after Shikigami, a symbol of an Onmyoji's power.
  • When the Exorcist summons White Tiger.png White Tigers, they closely resemble Komainu which are Lion-like creatures that often guards a Shrine or Temple entrances and meant to ward off evil spirits.
  • God of Knowledge- Black Tortoise.png God of Knowledge: Black Tortoise's dog-like appearance may be based on the tiangou, a black dog thought to eat the sun during an eclipse.


  • An Exorcist in various religions is a person who is believed to be able to cast out the devil or performs the ridding of demons or other supernatural beings.
  • Hyperion in Greek Mythology is one of twelve Titans that represented heavenly light.
  • Draconid is a meteor shower named after the same Dragon constellation where they originated from.
  • The overseas Second Awakening Primordial Enlightened, can refer to Amida of Mahayana Buddhism.
