Despereaux was a was a spider-like demon that served a very minor role in the original 'Devilman' manga. He never makes a physical appearance in the story, though his Devilman counterpart has a short look in.

Appearance[]

Despereaux resembled a humanoid spider, he had a seemingly normal face with three long spider like legs at the side of his head, and a large spike in the centre. His body was covered in shell like armour and had several other spider legs acting like a rib cage. Tufts of shaggy grey fur sprouted across various areas of his body and he had large yellow eyes.

Abilities[]

Despereaux had long, talon-like fingers he could slash with, and some degree of psychic energy, though its never said how strong.

History[]

Presumably, the arachnid demon Despereaux was one of the many demons sent on a suicide run of mass forced merging with incompatible humans, engineered as a scare tactic to cause hysteria among humanity.

However, unlike so many of his counterparts, Despereaux instead seemed to unintentionally merge with his intended victim, who in turn became a Devilman.

Trivia[]

  •  Despereaux was never named in the original manga, instead his name comes from other materials such as the source book 'The Demon Bible'.
