The Great Generals (大元帥, Daigensui) or Great Marshalls are five shadowed figure who head the Black Order. Though their faces are never seen, they seem to have eyes everywhere. Rumors say that the individuals at the headquarters of the Black Order are only puppets controlled by the real generals who are in Central, in the Vatican. They welcome every new exorcist after they are examined by Hevlaska. The Great Generals are the direct superiors to the Generals.



The Great Generals and Allen

They wear a black Black Order uniforms with golden sleeves and hoods. Their faces are never seen but they are all identical in stature, adding to the theory that these are only puppets.


Not much is known about their personalities, but they seem to be quite authoritarian, as they were seen giving orders during their rare appearances.


Very little is known about their past. Every time an exorcist was promoted to General, they were involved in the process. Four years before the story, they sent Cross Marian to look for the Akuma Plant.


Introduction Arc[]

The Great Generals are first seen watching Allen Walker through a picture frame as he visits the Order with Lenalee Lee. They are then seen on their chair in Hevlaska's room and they tell Allen that he possesses the Innocence of God, an almighty power. They add that "once again they got a hand on a god" and tell Allen to show his competence. Komui Lee introduces them and lets Hevlaska analyze Allen.[1] After Hevlaska examined Allen's innocence. They order him to "fight!" as it his "his duty as a chosen one".[2]

Edo and Asian Branch Arc[]

When Generals Winters Socalo and Klaud Nine arrive at the headquarters, they are called by the great generals who are waiting for them for a meeting.[3]

Noah's ark Arc[]

Komui Lee informs Reever that the great Marshalls are not informed that the Ark has been retrieved by the science section and tells him not to inform them. Komui is apparently late for a meeting with them and they require to know the reason for this before Hevlaska announces the apparition of a new critical point breaker. They seem rather enthusiastic about it.[4]

Invasion of the Black Order Arc[]

Following the attack of the headquarters by Lulu Bell and an army of Akumas, a several days long conference was hold by the high-ranking officers, including presumably them. [5]


  • Dai-gensui was the highest rank of the Greater Imperial Japanese Army and the Imperial Japanese Navy from the 1870s to 1945, when the Empire of Japan was dissolved.
