Characters


Yui Komori (小森 ユイ Komori Yui?) Voiced by: Rie Suegara (Japanese); Maggie Flecknoe (English) Yui is the heroine of the Diabolik Lovers series. She is a kind and gentle 17-year-old student who used to live with her father, a priest who owns his own church. After her father moved elsewhere for work, she was forced to live in a mansion with six mysterious brothers who are actually vampires. In the beginning she was skeptical of their supernatural nature, but came to find no other solution. In a struggle for survival she decides to live with them while bearing the fear of being attacked by each of them. She is the sacrificial bride legend of the Sakamaki vampires. Despite being mistreated by the vampires, Yui always responds to them with kindness and attempts to understand them better. In the first episode of the anime adaption, it is revealed that she is adopted and hence, begins to investigate her past. She also starts suffering chest pains while living with the Sakamaki's, due to the fact that her heart was originally Cordelia's, who was the mother of the triplets; Ayato, Kanato and Laito, sort of almost possessing Cordelia's blood. This explains why all of the brothers were highly drawn to her Yui's blood. She's also said to have the blood of Eve from Adam and Eve.


Sakamaki household The Sakamaki brothers are the sons of Karlheinz, but from three different mothers. The oldest sons, Shu and Reiji were conceived by Karlheinz's second wife, Beatrix. The triplets; Ayato, Kanato and Laito were born from Karlheinz's first wife, Cordelia. The youngest, Subaru came from Karlheinz's third wife, Christa. Even though they are brothers, they don't get along with each other and they seem rather distant due to the way they were brought up.


Shū Sakamaki (逆巻 シュウ Sakamaki Shū?) Voiced by: Kōsuke Toriumi (Japanese); Ty Mahany (English) Shū is the oldest son of the Sakamaki household and the current master of the mansion. He is the first son of Beatrix. Shu grew up being given to much unwanted attention from his mother. Due to his mothers rivalry with Cordelia to be Karlheinz's best wife, she put all the pressures on the young Shu. He is one of the brothers who seems to have any prior knowledge of Yui's arrival, mentioning "that person" had contacted him asking to have her stay with them as a guest. According to the students of the school, Shu is the owner of the music room and can always be found sleeping there. Yui needs to use a lot of persuasion in order to get him awake and do something for himself. Shu loves music despite being apathetic and lazy. His only friend was a human boy named Edgar, who died in a fire, set on his village by Reiji. Shu was unable to save him, so he thought that his life was limited from humans. Despite Shu being the eldest, he's never responsible for looking after his brothers and the house. Instead, he mostly pushes these duties onto Reiji.


Reiji Sakamaki (逆巻 レイジ Sakamaki Reiji?) Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi (Japanese); David Wald (English) Reiji is the second son of the Sakamaki brothers and the second son of Beatrix. He is very formal, and is generally the most composed aside from Shu. Although Shu is his only full blood brother, he despises him for being the supposed favourite of their mother, since he was neglected due to Cordelia's hostilities. He eventually took his anger out by setting fire to Edgar's village when Shu refused to listen to their mother. When it seemed that Edgar's death wasn't enough impress his mother and made Shu withdrawn, Reiji took out his anger again by hiring a vampire hunter to assassinate Beatrix. He later regretted this when she died at peace; happy to be freed from Cordelia's harassments and to be able to witness her son's mark of adulthood. He values rules and demands that the others follow them, even though many of his decrees are odd and self-made. Reiji chooses to be the role model of the house even though he is the second son. Although Reiji has a very polite attitude and almost always acts like a gentleman, he is a man of very harsh words. Along with his passion for experimenting and making drugged potions, he loves to collect kitchenware.


Ayato Sakamaki (逆巻 アヤト Sakamaki Ayato?) Voiced by: Hikaru Midorikawa (Japanese); Chris Patton (English) Ayato is the third son of the Sakamaki brothers. As a child, Ayato was similarly put pressure upon to be the best, just as Shu was. But unlike Shu, he never received love from his mother. He was beaten and abused by her to the point where she attempted to drown him if he was not the best. Therefore, he grew up always having to be the best, and being self centered, and overconfident. He refers to himself most of the time as "Ore-sama". Due to never receiving any type of love from his mother, he is unable to love, and is at first cold towards Yui. Though over time starts to warm up to her and care for her. He is the first from the Sakamaki's to appear at the beginning of the first episode of the anime, as well as the first one to drink Yui's blood.


Kanato Sakamaki (逆巻 カナト Sakamaki Kanato?) Voiced by: Yūki Kaji (Japanese); Corey Hartzog (English) Kanato is the fourth son of the Sakamaki brothers, the second oldest of the triplets, and is usually referred to as the "problem triplet". He is the second son of Cordelia. As a child, he received little attention from his mother. He has dark circle undertones under his eyes, which may be from a lack of sleep, light purple hair and light purple eyes. Very often, his mother would have sexual encounters with different men right in front of him. Due to being neglected by his mother, he often played alone and talked to his dolls, usually to his precious Teddy which he will take with him everywhere. However, there were occasions when his mother would request him to sing for her, because of his beautiful voice and she nicknamed him her "little songbird". Kanato tends to cry often and gets violently angry when he doesn't get his demands. That aside, he is quite attached to Yui. He speaks politely, but is extremely sadistic and tends to display violent outbursts, most noticeably to Yui. He is also shown to be abusive. He is also obsessed with the dead to the point where he prefers them to the living. After he and his brothers killed their mother, he burned her body and placed her cremated remains in his Teddy.


Laito Sakamaki (逆巻 ライト Sakamaki Raito?) Voiced by: Daisuke Hirakawa (Japanese); Blake Shepard (English) Laito is the fifth son of the Sakamaki brothers. He was abused by his mother and began seeing her as a lover rather than a parent. When Karlheinz found out about the unusual relationship between them, he locked him in the basement. Later Cordelia went to see him and told him that she was now having sexual relations with someone else and had only been using Laito for pleasure. The overall shock and the situation ended up with Laito becoming perverted and not having a clear understanding of love. He is always cheerful and loves to joke but is similar to Ayato when teasing Yui. However, his personality suddenly changes when something goes against his wishes, usually when Yui is too defiant around him.


Subaru Sakamaki (逆巻 スバル Sakamaki Subaru?) Voiced by: Takashi Kondō (Japanese); Josh Grelle (English) Subaru is the sixth and youngest of the Sakamaki brothers. He is the only son of Christa. He first shows himself when he notices Yui's human scent and went to investigate its source. He is usually alone and never cares about whats happening around him. However, he easily gets angry and resorts to violence, going as far as to break everything when he gets extremely angered. He manages to compress this side when around Yui, but is still prone to outbursts. There is a tsundere side of him that only Yui can see. He's a delinquent type and loves to damage things.


Mukami household The Mukami brothers were new characters who debuted in the second version of the franchise, Diabolik Lovers, More Blood.

Ruki Mukami (無神 ルキ Mukami Ruki?) Voiced by: Takahiro Sakurai Ruki is the eldest son of the Mukami family and is known as the 'Brains' of the group. When he was still a human, Ruki was the son of an aristocrat, and as a child; he was spoilt and arrogant until his family went bankrupt. He became an orphan after his father committed suicide while his mother ran away with her secret lover.

Ruki eventually ended up in the orphanage where he was bullied by the other orphans and mistreated by the staff since he was a former aristocrat, before meeting his brothers, Kou, Yuma and Azusa. He devised a plan to escape the orphanage which failed when he and his brothers got shot by the orphanage staff, resulting him getting branded as 'livestock' on the back as punishment. Just as he was dying, he met the Sakamaki's father, Karlheinz, who offered him another chance to live, but as vampires. Ruki immediately accepted the offer; seeing this as a chance to get revenge on those who abused him and deprived him of humanity. As the leader of the Mukami's, Ruki is a cruel manipulator with a cool attitude who is able to keep things under his control and a bit of kudere which Yui notices. He is often seen carrying a book around with him, which is said to be a memento of his father. He is the first from the Mukami's to drink Yui's blood in the second season of the anime.

He eventually ended up in the orphanage and became a playtoy for the aristocrats due to his beauty. He was abused everyday and he forced himself to accept being a playtoy since he was able to have a lot of 'nice' things from the orphanage.

He met Karlheinz as he was dying and was offered another chance to live, but as vampires.

He is also a haraguro type which only happens when something doesn't go his way or he isn't given anything back. On top of that, he is an idol in the 'present' human world which gives him the advantage of using his beautiful and pristine features to deceive his fans and others. He is also rivals with Subaru and seems to enjoy provoking him when it comes to Yui.

He also doubted his existence and believed that his life had no meaning, until he was picked up by three thieving children named; Justin, Christina and Melissa, who would constantly beat him up for any ridiculous reason. However, the more Azusa was beatened up, he began to enjoy it and started seeing pain as his meaning of existence, believing that being able to feel pain would confirm that you're alive.

Azusa accepted the offer in order to feel pain again and was considered a pitiful human before being turned into a vampire. He is the only one out of the Mukami's who seems to be 'decent' towards Yui. The way he speaks is quite timid and he is a bit of a yandere.
