We don't fight for the sake of fighting. Nor do we live for the sake of fighting. It's because we have things that are precious to us. I think that's why people fight.


For (フォー, ; Viz "Fo") is a member of security section of the Asian Branch of the Black Order. A humanoid being made of a complex combination of technology and spells, For is the embodiment of the Asian Branch's guardian deity, though she can also be summoned directly to Bak Chang's side when needed once he uses the spirit stone on his hat.


For appears to be of average height for her physical age. Short, reddish-pink hair pokes out from under her purple hat to frame her face, with matching purple clothes that resemble a tube top and bikini. On her forehead and down her sides are geometric teal markings, and her arms, instead of ending in human-like hands, appear to be large, mitten-like appendages that she can transform into weapons.


For has a very hot-headed personality and often yells at people. She is very tough and straightforward but she cares about people around her, although she often tricks them and beats up some of her closest friends (usually Bak). She is very strong-willed and won't take "no" for an answer and she believes that you have to try your hardest when you want to protect someone.

Inside the shell, she is very caring and is willing to give her life for the sake of those she loves.

She is very attached to the Chang clan and faithfully serves every clan head. [1]

She was created by Bak's great-grandfather. Although she is not a human, she often takes on a humanoid form to communicate with others. When the Asian Branch was still the host location of the Second Exorcist Program, she comforted a depressed Alma Karma, and later, when Alma went on a rampage, she was ordered by the then Branch Chief Tui Chang to not interfere, which resulted in the deaths of all of the personnel involved in the project. Despite calling them fools, For arranged the bodies of Tui and her husband, Edgar Chang Martin, so that they were holding hands.

For then followed the posthumous order of Twi and destroyed the whole sixth laboratory including any records of the experiments. [4]


Edo and Asia Branch Arc

Allen and For

The barrier is broken

For was wandering in the zone around the Asian branch when she smelled a corpse before tripping over Allen's body because of the "fog" surrounding him. She first glimpsed the cards all around and then noticed with horror the corpse of Allen, assuming that it was "too late for him".[5] She nevertheless took him to the headquarters of the Asia Branch after gathering all the cards but the ace of space, all the while being followed by the mysterious "fog". After they discover that Allen is still alive, he is bedridden and For watches him. But while she takes a nap, Allen wakes up and leaves the room. [6]

For looks after him and finds him with Bak. She bursts into the room and kicks Bak in the head before yelling at Allen for leaving the medical ward without telling her. Bak is mad at her but she ignores him and goes on asking salutations from Allen. After they all calm down a little, she tells Allen not to get lost, mentioning that someone lost himself and starved.[7]

Later, For is called to spar with Allen in order to help him to regain his innocence. She comes out of the wall complaining that she is not designed to do babysitting. She attacks Allen, easily overpowering him and stopping her blade just under his throat. She claims his head and kicks him in the belly, throwing him away. Allen resolves to continue the training[8] and they clash, For still having the upper hand. She almost beheads him just before she starts to dematerialize because she "is sleepy".[9]


For copies Allen's appearance


For and Bak hit by Thread

She took Allen's form to face the Level 3 Akuma, in order to buy the real Allen time. Just before they began to fight, she said to herself "Bye bye, Bak." Allen refused to let the sacrifice happen and finally convinced Bak to let him go back for her. Bak ran to For's side while Allen confronted the Level 3 and defeated it with the newly activated Crown Clown. She was hurt badly by the ark as it appeared right under where she stood and created a hole in her body where her heart should be, but she is healed afterwards.

Artificial Exorcists Arc

For stops Bak Chan from "attacking the headquarters" (to protest against the Third exorcist program) by stomping on him. She explains that as the experiments worked they are valuable assets for the order and won't be got rid of that easily. At this moment Yu Kanda passes by. They return to the Asian branch with him and For uses a loud speak to make herseld heared by old hard of hearing Zuu Mei Chang. She is annoyed because his hearing aid is nowhere to see. For, Rohfa, Rikei and Shifu go after the hearing aid while Kanda stays with Bak. On the way back, they meet Allen Walker and Lenalee Lee but For stays next to Zuu. When Zu contemplates his past sins, For thoughtfully says his name. [10]

A few days later, during the invasion of the North American Branch, when Allen was being crushed by an insane Tokusa, Bak summoned For through the Stone, who protected Allen in a barrier. She tells him to take down Alma Karma while Tokusa was distracted, but realizes that Allen was seriously considering joining the Noah Family in order to get the Earl to stop. In an attempt to dissuade him, she was cut along the back by Tyki Mikk, who then told Allen to join them.[11]

However, For manages to sit up, and yells at Allen that it isn't easy to protect someone. When Tyki attacks her again, Allen blocks the attack, and decides to oppose the Earl. For then tells Allen to go stop Alma, turning her arms into blades and preparing to hold off Tyki.[11]

When the Stone shattered, For disappeared mid-fight.

Searching for A.W. Arc

For is seen by the bedside of Zuu Mei Chang.[12]

For appears in Allen's memories of his representation of "home". [13]

Powers and Abilities

Allen and For 2

For Training with Allen

Body transformation: For is able to transform parts of her body into different objects, usually weapons, or even change her whole appearance to mimic someone else's. She showed this power while training Allen Walker to regain his Innocence by transforming her hands into blade weapons and later during the Akuma Level 3 Thread's invasion of the Asian Branch by taking on Allen's appearance so she could fool him to keep Allen safe.

Remote Viewing: For can use the deity symbols within the Asian headquarters to view other locations without having to be there personally.

Telepathic communication: For is shown to be able to communicate with others using her mind.

Barrier Creation: The headquarters of the Asian Branch is protected by a powerful barrier For has created and maintains, which has done so for over a hundred years. For herself is the entrance into the barrier. Such is it's strength the Level 3 Akuma, Thread, had to use Noah's Ark's doors to bypass the barrier and enter into the headquarters. Presumably after Thread's defeat, the barrier was instated. Whether a means has been found by the Asian Branch to block further such intrusions is unknown at this time.

Expert Combatant: For is shown to be stronger, faster and tougher then a regular human, as given her supernatural origins. She can easily overwhelm a trained human like Allen Walker in hand to hand combat. Although she had trouble dealing with Thread she could hold off a Noah level opponent.

Major Battles

  • For Vs Allen Walker (training)
  • For VS Thread
  • For VS Tokusa
  • For VS Tyki Mikk


Zuu Mei Chang:

Twi Chang:

Bak Chang: She also shares a very strong bond with Bak the current clan head even though she loves to tease him. For is usually quite violent, regularily hitting or kicking Bak. Bak in returns reacts with anger to her "teasings".Despite their numerous arguments, For and Bak deeply care for each others and this shows in situations of crisis. When For decided to fight Thread to stop for time despite not being able to destroy it(since she has no innocence), Bak eventually opened the wall and ran to take For in his embrace.

Allen Walker:She has a "tough-love" attitude, particularly towards Allen. While she was training Allen in an attempt to bring back his Innocence, she would attack without mercy with the hope that the Exorcist would activate his Innocence. When Allen was feeling down, she would appear to him as someone else (e.g.: Rohfa (this way she could show her soft side without Allen knowing). During their training, Allen and For developed a unique bond as friends.


  • For enjoys making fun of Bak, chatting and surprising people. She like the asian branch, humans and combat and being a busybody. She dislikes death, goodbyes and people who lack manners.[14] [1]
  • For seems to like Bak. As hinted in one of the post credits, calling Bak as Stupid Bak (Baka-baku), saying that she likes him and eventually adding that she is only joking.[15]
