|“||I am not a vampire... I am Arystar Krory!||”|
—Krory to Jasdevi
AppearanceKrory is a tall lean man with very sharp facial features, pointed ears and sharp fangs. He has short black hair with a long white streak which falls in front of his face and spirally sideburns . He wears an exorcists uniform that is modified into a cloak. When his Innocence is activated his white hair stands on end and his facial features take on a more feral look, his eyes change to reflect this, with the sclera and pupils turning black and his irises turning to a dull yellow. In addition his Teeth grow longer and become pointed.
Krory led a very sheltered life before becoming an exorcist, causing him to act extremely naive (often comically so) when dealing with normal situations. Krory is also rather sensitive, which leads him to be overemotional at times, often resulting in him crying over something small. In almost complete contrast to this is his personality when his Innocence is activated. Once Krory drinks Akuma blood he becomes a violent, bloodthirsty berserker with incredible strength and feral rage in combat. He is vicious, however he still remains loyal and will not hurt someone he knows to be an ally. Eventually, these two personalities merge together; however, they are still separate, allowing Krory some degree of control.

For his entire life, Krory lived in a secluded castle. In his childhood he grew up with his Grandfather among a huge collection of foreign artifacts. Prized among these were rare carnivorous plants that would attack if they sensed aggression.Due to the castle they lived in and the plants' tendency to attack any guests, rumors began to spread in the nearby village that the inhabitants were Vampires. Shunned by the village and left in isolation, Krory began to feel as if he was just another piece in his grandfather's collection. When his Grandfather died, he found himself at a loss, needing proof of his existence and praying for something he could call his own. Around this time, a stranger, later revealed to be Cross Marian, came to the castle to return one of his grandfather's plants, a carnivorous one named Roseanne. The plant was acting strange and bit Krory. Afterward, it withered and died and Krory believed himself to be poisoned. It was at this moment that his teeth fell out and the Innocence fangs grew in. This led to Krory instinctively seeking out Akuma to kill. As he did not understand how the Innocence worked, Krory believed that he had become a vampire and was killing humans. Whilst out hunting one night, he instinctively attacked a party that included a beautiful young woman. He fell in love with this woman even though he wanted to drink her blood, because he felt her own pain and sorrow. Little did he realize that the woman, Eliade, was actually a Level 2 Akuma. Krory and Eliade lived together in solitude until the villagers below hired exorcists to deal with the "vampire threat".
The Vampire from the Old Castle ArcAllen and Lavi are recruited into "vampire hunting" for a village. As they are about to enter into the castle grounds Krory is spotted and streaks through the posse accompanying the exorcists with incredible speed. The villagers realize he has grabbed a member of posse Franz. and he begins to drain the blood of the victim. He engages Allen and Lavi still with the victim in his mouth. As the exorcists attack, Lavi increases the size of his Hammer to massive proportions and slams Krory with it. Krory however manages to hold the hammer tip with his teeth, which is Allen's feat of strength neither exorcist can believe. Allen catches Krory with his Innocence and demands he stop. Krory asks whether the two of them are also monsters to which they reply they are exorcists. He then bites into Allen's hand through the protective strength of his Innocence but cannot stand the taste and runs off with the body of Franz. He is then seen back at his castle in tears as he explains to his mistress that he became a vampire again. He tries to wake up the "man" he attacked but Eliade explains he is dead and says she will bury him in the usual place, he then almost bites her and tells her to stay away but then they both say they love each other and kiss. Eliade tells him that they should stay in the castle alone together forever. Whilst reflecting on why he has become the way he is Krory notices the explosion caused by the plants ingesting Franz, he goes to investigate when Eliade finds him and tells him the exorcists are coming here to assassinate him, she says he needs to fight to protect her but in order to do so he should drink a little of her blood. Krory attacks the exorcists knocking Lavi unconscious and overpowering Allen with his superior speed. Allen tries to reason with him due to the knowledge the two had just gained and disengages his weapon. However, Krory doesn't listen and send Allen crashing through a wall of the castle. Lavi then attacks stating that he will bloody Krory up somewhat before talking since he's angry. The two battle whilst Lavi explains that Krory has not been attacking humans but instinctively seeking out Akuma and destroying them. Krory is still skeptical so Lavi decides to finish the fight using his Fire Seal. This attack propels Krory into the midst of Allen's fight with Eliade, who turns back into human form to comfort him. However because of Allen's newly evolved left eye Krory can see the soul attached to Eliade and finally realizes that the exorcists were telling the truth. This leads Eliade to attack in her Akuma form. Although he is nearly killed by Eliade's moisture absorption powers Krory eventually manages to kill her. In a fit of depression over killing his love Krory verbally abuses one of the carnivorous plants so that it'll kill him but Allen gives him a reason to go on living by saying he should become an exorcist. Krory then comes to the black order to join the team. After being thrown out of the village, he accompanies Allen and Lavi on their search for General Cross Marian. On the train he is extremely depressed that the villagers still thought of him as a monster even after the truth came out and chased him out the village (along with Allen and Lavi). Lavi suggests he see some of the train since he's not been on one before and Krory cheers up a little and goes to explore. After several hours pass Allen and Lavi worry where Krory could have gotten to and go searching him. They find him crying and naked with a bunch of vagabonds, one of whom is the Noah Tyki Mikk, suckered into playing poker with them. After losing all his possessions, he is saved by Allen, who turns the tables through cheating.

He is very excited to be on a mission and even when Bookman and Lavi show up to assist he is still in high spirits. He believes that by saving the village from the Akuma they will herald him as a hero, he even goes so far as to have ready made autographs prepared. When he gets to the village he beings investigating but no one has heard of anything strange happening, although two children invite him to see their monster. The exorcists go to see the monster who is a frog shaped Level 2 Akuma, Krory goes into attack mode but the children along with the rest of the villagers insist that the monster is good and the Akuma also assures them he has no ill intent. Krory is desperate to believe that this is true, since he also believes Eliade was a good Akuma. However that night he runs into the monster whose personality has changed. He attempts to fight it in the dark but when he realizes who the Akuma is he is thrown off guard and the Akuma gets away. Eventually it transpires that a stained glass window within the town contained a shard of Innocence and had altered the Akuma's personality whilst in the villages vicinity. The window breaks and the spell is released. Krory battles the monster and defeats it. Even though it was going to attack the children the villagers are angry at Krory for disturbing their town, the banish him in much the same way as he was banished from his own village.

However Jasdevi impales him using his hair and attack again, just as Jasdevi seems to have the upper hand on the whole group Krory grabs him by the hair and gives the others time to escape. With the others gone and Krory seemingly defeated, Jasdevi attempts to go after them but he is hit in the back with a flask. Krory is revealed to be revitalized after drinking more of Chomesuke's blood. Jasdevi taunts Krory calling him a monster for drinking Akuma blood, he attacks with two pentacle shaped screens, crushing Krory between them. However this just makes Krory angry, and he states that there was only one person who could ever call him a vampire (Eliade) and since they have he is now going to defeat Jasdevi. Krory then breaks out of the screen. and fortifies his hands by wrapping his blood around them. Jasdevi then notices that he gets stronger from drinking the Akuma blood as Krory remarks that he only has one bottle left. The two continue to battle with Krory seeming to gain an upper hand. He realizes that their power is about the same and if he drank the last bottle of Akuma blood he would be able to beat them, however because of the injuries already sustained his body isn't strong enough to break down the virus anymore and it is poisoning him.
He begins to lose ground against the Noah and as he contemplates drinking the last bottle it is stolen from him by a separated strand of Jasdevi's hair. Jasdevi then drinks the bottle whilst pinning Krory to the ground. In order to finish off Krory and go after the others Jasdevi creates a giant Iron Maiden and shuts Krory within it. He makes one last attempt at getting out to attack Jasedvi, who comments that he really is a monster but isn't unable to escape and the maiden slams shut again with his arm sticking out. In his mind he sees Eliade who come to him and asks what he is doing in the maiden, she tells him not to die and to follow the others, After thanking her and expressing his love blood starts to poor out the maiden.
Krory attacks Jasdevi in a form made up entirely of his blood, sucking the last of Chomesuke's blood out of the Noah. Krory remarks that he cannot hear or feel pain and that he is moving his body through will power alone. In this form he completely overwhelms Jasdevi, attacking in a berserk rage whilst insisting he will protect his friends. Whilst attacking he damages the Noah leaving a scar with the word Innocence on his arm. Eventually Jasdevi cannot take any more and splits into the two twins, who both fall unconscious. Krory then returns to his own body, entering back into him and also losing his consciousness safe in the knowledge that his friends made it away.
Krory is seen alive yet unconscious as Allen begins rebuilding the Ark along with the other fallen exorcists. As Kanda is brought back he finds Krory and carries him to Chaoji and Lavi, although unable to walk he is barely able to say Eliade's name.

Krory had bit some people, and it spread to almost everyone in the order. Krory was temporarily cured by Komui's robot, only to be reinfected by Lavi, Timcampy, and Allen literally seconds later. After some hassle, Bak managed to cure everyone the next day.
Artificial Exorcist Arc

Krory is dispatched on a mission to Russia with Miranda Lotto, Noise Marie and the Third Exorcist Kiredori. He is present as the Exorcist begin to mutate from the Alma Karma cells infused with Dark Matter. Afterwards, General Socalo killed Kiredori and Krory was hardly injured, General Socalo explained to Krory that once Kiredori became an Akuma she was no longer an ally and needed to be killed. Later, Devit announced to Krory and the others that Yu Kanda awakened the 14th inside Allen and that at anytime the Noah could emerge.
Seed Of Destruction Arc
After the battle Krory is seen sitting with the other Exorcists and the members of the Science Department. Jerry prepared lots of food and told them that it would help them regain their spirit after the Alma Karma incident. Krory cried and complained, but Jerry forced him, causing him to stop.
In the anime, Krory is seen standing next to the window and woundering about Allen's situation, since he recently was imprisoned because of his actions in the North American Branch and the awakening of the 14-th Noah within him. When Miranda tries to talk with him, Krory says he worries for Allen and wants to help him as he did the same for Krory. He urges Miranda to join Lenalee and Marie in persuading Komui to do something about Allen. Although Miranda fears she would be no use in this case, they eventually set off together. In Komui's room, Krory and his friends witness the explosion in the dungeon where Allen has been held.
As the rest of the Exorcists, Krory takes part in the pursuit of Allen when he fled from the Order along with Road and Tyki and was officially classified as a Noah. Soon enough, the Thirds blocked their way to let Allen escape, which prompts Krory to note how low they have fallen. In the anime, he also participates in the battle against Akuma troops who arrived to hold them off along with the Thirds. However, their efforts turn out to be meaningless, as Allen managed to escape through the Arc, choosing to walk by his own path.Three months later, Krory is seen with his fellow Exorcists preparing to the upcoming missions. Krory talks with one of the finders about the route they'll take to the place of their next mission and then tells Chaozii they'll depart in one hour. When Chaozii says that a lot of their comrades are dead or missing, including Kanda, Lavi and Bookman, Krory notes that the latter two must be alive. Krory is among those who recalled Allen as well, though visibly saddened by Chaozii's reaction, where he points out that they are done with Allen, the man who (officially) killed Howard Link and fled with the Noah.
Powers and Abilities
Unnamed Innocence (Informally referred to as Teeth): Krory received his Innocence, a parasitic type, from a plant named "Roseanne" Cross Marian gave to him. The plant bit Krory afterwards. After agonizing pain, his teeth fell out and were replaced by his parasitic form of Innocence. These teeth allow him to act as an "Akuma sensor", activating when they recognize an enemy to be an Akuma, and enables him to drink Akuma blood without being infected by the Virus, though excessive drinking over a short period of time will result in the Virus slowly breaking his body down.
- Enhanced Speed: Krory is able to move at incredibly quick speeds appearing only as a blur to unready opponents.
- Enhanced Strength: Krory is a melee brawler when his Innocence is activated with no set style. Instead he relies on brute strength to tear opponents apart. Krory's teeth can bite through practically any Akuma Armor except when the armor is thick enough for the fangs not to penetrate completely. He was also capable of stopping a direct blow from Lavi's' hammer with his teeth.
- Immense Durability: One of Krory's most astounding traits when drinking Akuma blood is his incredible durability. He has been in several situations which should have led to his death and survived, including having all the moisture drained from his body and being locked in an Iron Maiden.
- Crimson: Through blood manipulation Krory is also able to inject his own blood into an opponent. As his blood is laced with Innocence this acts as an extremely potent poison to Akuma making them explode into tiny red particles.
- Blood fortification: Krory can cover parts of his body, in particular his fists with hardened blood to fortify his body and intensify his already awesome strength.
- Vaccine: Krory is made of Innocence-laced blood so he can suck the blood out of an ally in order to take the virus out. Similarly, in demonic form, because he is made of blood he can extract akuma blood out of an enemy's skin by touch. The strain of using this technique leaves Krory so exhausted he cannot stand or move.
- Bloody Krory: When pushed to his limits, Krory can drain the blood from his body and wield his maximum strength remotely as an almost invulnerable, winged blood mannequin. Bloody Krory also has the ability to drain Akuma blood from someone without biting them.
