Rokuro | Demon Slayer Kimetsu No Yaiba
Rokuro (轆ろく轤ろ Rokuro) was a member of the Twelve Kizuki, having held the position of lower rank two (下か弦げんの弐に Kagen no Ni?).
Rokuro had the appearance of an elderly man, with a stocky build and pale skin adorned with black veins on his face, arms and legs. He had long, dark purple hair that he let down, a short jagged beard around his jawline, and golden cat-like eyes with the kanji for “Two” carved into the left.
He was wearing what appeared to be a dark cyan version of a typical karate gi.
Like the other Lower Ranks, Rokuro both respected and feared Muzan Kibutsuji as a leader. After almost all of the Lower Ranks were killed by Muzan, Rokuro was visibly scared that the same would happen to him, and he begged his leader to give him more blood to increase his strength so he wouldn’t die. , exhibiting a rather cowardly demeanor. Despite this, Rokuro seemed very confident in the potential of his abilities as a Demon, as he claimed that if he received just a little more blood from Muzan, he could definitely become a strong fighter worthy of the ranks of the Demons. Twelve Kizuki, which showed that he was very determined and passionate about his role.
Rehab Training Arc
After all the remaining Lower Ranks gather at Infinity Castle, Muzan appears before them in her female form. He looks at them with annoyance and asks them to lower their heads and squat in front of him. After they all comply, Mukago says she’s sorry she was ordered to bow, as she didn’t recognize Muzan in his current form. Muzan angrily asks her why she is speaking without permission, ordering her to shut up and not speak unless asked a question directly. As she cowers in fear at her feet, Muzan explains the death of Rui, the only Lower Rank who was not among those gathered before him, and asks the remaining Demons why they are so weak.
Muzan explains to them that being in the ranks of the Twelve Kizuki is not the end, but only the beginning of what is to come. He states that their only purpose is to consume blood so they can be of use to him. Muzan angrily retorts that it’s been hundreds of years since the Upper Ranks have been replaced, while the Lower Ranks are all the time, to which Kamanue thinks he can’t just tell them that. 3] Able to read the minds of those he shared blood with, Muzan angrily asks Kamanue why he can’t tell them that, and extends his tentacle arm to grab the Lower Rank by the neck and lift him into the airs. A terrified Kamanue tries to apologize,
Afterwards, Wakuraba thinks to himself that he is also going to be killed, and so he must do more to maintain his position as Lower Rank, and, simultaneously, Mukago thinks that she is running away every time she hears. of a Hashira. Muzan repeats their two thoughts out loud, and a terrified Mukago exclaims that what she thought is not true and that she would fight with her life for him. Muzan asks her if she is denying what he said, and as Mukago begins to apologize and cry, another blow from Muzan’s tentacles crushes her to the ground, killing her.
Shocked by this, Wakuraba immediately assumes the worst and decides it would be wiser to flee than to stay if he wants to keep his life. He rushes out of the Infinity Castle at high speed, and Enmu figures it was a stupid decision, since Muzan will kill him anyway. This conclusion turns out to be correct, as Wakuraba’s head is quickly severed, so quickly that he wonders how he could have died in his final moments.
Rokuro, one of the two Low Ranks still alive, panics and exclaims that he can still be of use to Muzan if he puts off his death a bit longer. Muzan then asks for clarification on exactly how much time Lower Two was asking for, how it would be useful to Muzan, and what exactly he could accomplish at his current level; Rokuro explains that if he had more of Muzan’s blood, he could adapt it and definitely become a strong fighter worthy of his leader. Muzan angrily throws Wakuraba’s head next to Enmu and Rokuro, asking Lower Rank 2 why he should get more blood based on his “order” and saying he should know where it stands. Rokuro tries to protest, but Muzan silences him and says that since he tried to instruct his leader, Rokuro deserved to die.
