Demons cannot traverse to the human world unless they have a suitable host to possess. For the great demon king, Satan, there are no human hosts suitable for his immense power. As a last ditch effort to invade the human world, Satan sends his infant son, in the hopes he'll grow up into a suitable host. However, his demon son, Rin Okumura, wants nothing to do with him and instead trains as an exorcist to stop him from world domination.
