Densen is a very chubby man, who appears to be in his late 60's. He wears traditional Japanese robes, he has short grey hair


Despite his false self-claimed skills he did actually not believe in demons himself and considered them only to be a symbol of man's own dark thoughts.

Abillities and Powers

Densen is a fraud so he doesn't have shamanic powers


Mappa Douji

Densen Hoshi was supposedly a monk, held in high esteem for his "ability" to see demons and kill them. People went to him to tell him about a woman called Asanoha Douji who spoke to things others couldn't see and was considered as a demon, a fox disguised as a woman. Densen and his men burnt her alive in her house but didn't kill her infant son, Asaha Douji, believing that it wasn't really necessary.

Soon afterward, he was asked to kill him too but Asaha, having formed his first Over Soul with Ohachiyo, fought them off and killed Densen to avenge his mother.[1]
