The Demon Slaying Corps ( () (さつ) (たい) Kisatsutai?) is an organization that has existed since ancient times, dedicated to protecting humanity from Demons. There are hundreds of Demon Slayers within the organization, but they aren't officially recognized by the government.[1][2]

Structure

Joining

In order to become a Demon Slayer, an individual must be capable of passing the Final Selection, a test used as an entrance exam to join the Demon Slaying Corps. During this selection, a group of seven must survive on a mountainside infested with Demons without any aide from the outside world.

Students who pass the Final Selection are automatically granted the rank of Mizunoto, and must complete a variety of missions to ultimately reach the rank of Kinoe. Ranks are as follows:

Mizunoto→Mizunoe→Kanoto→Kanoe→Tsuchinoto→Tsuchinoe→Hinoto→Hinoe→Kinoto→Kinoe [3]

Upon completing the Final Selection, Demon Slayers are issued the standard uniform, which is highly durable and light-weight and cannot be easily damaged by minor Demons. They are given a Nichirin Blade, which is designed to eliminate demons efficiently. Slayers are also assigned a Kasugai crow for communication purposes.

History

It is implied by Kagaya Ubuyashiki that Muzan came from the same family as his about 1000 years ago. [4] Kagaya states: This led to the family bloodline being cursed. Every child born in our family was weak, and they died right away. But when our family was about to get wiped from existence, the priest gave us some advice. A demon came from our bloodline. So you must dedicate your soul to defeating him. And if you do that, your family will not die out. We have received wives from our priests for generations. And our children are more resilient to death now. But nobody in our family has lived beyond thirty." [5] Indicating that the Ubuyashiki family has led the battle against Muzan for almost 1000 years.
