Kyojuro Rengoku is the Flame Hashira of Demon Slayer Corps. He has a strong moral compass and a respectable idea of right versus wrong. He lives by his code of honor and can’t help but defend the weak. These honorable qualities were instilled in him by his mother.
Kyojuro Rengoku enjoys the stressful life of a Hashira. He’s learned to make the most out of what might be limited time on this planet. Kyojuro is often seen lost in the comfort of others’ company. His kind, friendly nature is infectious, and it’s hard not to love and respect this dedicated warrior.
Nezuko’s infection into a half-demon girl is one of the major catalysts in the series. The hopes of curing her of this ailment remain Tanjiro’s North Star during his journey. Nezuko is presented as a liability to protect during the earlier episodes of Demon Slayer.
She gradually exposes Demon Blood Art powers that put full-blood monsters to shame. Demon Slayer’s relationship with Nezuko continues to evolve, and fans are only more curious about where the supporting player is headed.
Inosuke’s eccentricity is attributed to his being raised by boars since he was a child. This demon slayer is loud, aggressive, and prideful. He always brims with overconfidence, he believes that he’ll win any fight he participates in, whether it’s against a demon or otherwise.
Inosuke is short-tempered, hates losing, and doesn’t easily make friends. However, despite these shortcomings, Inosuke enjoys being praised even for the tiniest of things. He eventually makes great friends with Zenitsu and Tanjiro.
Zenitsu is a consistent coward who tends to flee from fights, which is ironic since he desires to be a demon slayer. He struggles with low self-esteem, which is why he goes out of his way to please those around him.
All of this being said, Zenitsu also shows unexpected bursts of courage, strength, and determination. Great accomplishments lie ahead for Zenitsu in Demon Slayer’s “Swordsmith Village Arc.”
