Eshi explains that in a previous life he was an artist, hence his habit of making a frame with his hands prior to an attack and proclaiming "Title!" before naming the scene in front of him. As an Akuma, Eshi is absolutely obedient to the Noah Family, and continues to kill to evolve.

History Edit

In life, Eshi was an artist.[1] After becoming an Akuma, he eventually evolved to Level 3.

Plot Edit

Edo and Asian Branch Arc Edit

Eshi first appears on the deck of Anita's ship while the crew and the Exorcists aboard (Lenalee Lee, Bookman, Lavi, Miranda Lotto, and Arystar Krory III) are on their way to Edo, Japan, chasing after General Cross Marian. It attacks Lavi from behind, attempting to crush his skull.[2] Bookman, though, intercepts with his Heaven Compass, saving Lavi and entrapping Eshi in his needles. When questioned, Eshi first reveals that he was created from the soul of a Japanese artist, then reveals that he knows information about Cross Marian. The Akuma then attacks Bookman, rendering him unconscious.[3]

Lenalee Lee challenges Eshi next, leading him away from the ship to protect the others. The ship, though, starts to sink, and while fighting Lenalee, Eshi reveals one of his abilities: he can use his Dark Matter to control gravity, using ornamental chains that first wrap around, then increase the gravity of his target.[4] Lenalee is wrapped in these chains, as is Miranda's Time Record, the latter of which results in a lift of the protection on the ship and is causing it to sink.

Eshi then returns to attacking Lenalee and forces her to sink into the ocean.[5] This causes Eshi to feel a sadistic jubilation so powerful that back in China, Allen Walker's pentacle eye reacts.[6]

When Lenalee regains her will and invoks her Dark Boots to their maximum level, using the natural aversion of Dark Matter to Innocence to push Eshi's gravity chains away and lighten herself,[7] Eshi waits for her so they can resume their battle. As they fight, Eshi explains to Lenalee that her attacks will not be effective against him, as he is a close-combat type and she does not have the strength to piece his armor.[8]

This gives Lenalee the idea to take advantage of Eshi's gravity increasing Dark Matter, and using her Dark Boots special ability Falling Technique: Iron Shackles,[9] she turns her own body into a massive, heavy blade and crashes down on Eshi, the weight piercing him, the Innocence deconstructing his body, and the attack, altogether, finishing the Akuma off.[10]

After Eshi's death, the effect of his Dark Matter gravity shackles is dispelled from Miranda's Time Record.[11]

Abilities and Powers Edit

Immense Physical Prowess: As a Level 3 Akuma, Eshi has extreme speed and strength, enough to overpower several Exorcists all by himself. He is the first Akuma to refer to himself as being a specific 'type', explaining to Lenalee when her attacks aren't effective that he is a sturdy, close-combat type.[12]

Gravity Chains: Eshi's ability is to create Dark Matter chains that affects gravity, which can even overpower Miranda Lotto's Time Record abilities[13] and Lenalee Lee's Dark Boots at their maximum invocation. It is also stated by Lenalee that once caught in the Gravity Chains, there is no escape, unless if Eshii is killed.

Trivia Edit

  • Eshi is the first Akuma who's soul is not shown in the first appearance as a Level 3 (Due to Allen Walker's rehabilitation elsewhere).
