This page is about the protagonist of Defense Devil. For the protagonist of Devil Lawyer Kukabara, visit D. Lorian Kukabara.
The former prince of the Demon World, Kucabara was said to have the strongest Dark Matter in the Demon World, thus, being considered the strongest of all demons, until his younger brother, Legato, betrayed him, stealing all of his power and taking his place as the next Demon King. Kucabara now acts as a defense lawyer for unknowns, souls that are suspected of being sinners.
During his childhood, Kucabara was bullied by schoolmates because of his kind nature, uncommon to demons. His friend Funi protected him during this phase. At some point, Kucabara and his brothers started devil-boarding at Sky's Rock and his sister died, leaving behind an illusion to help him in the future.
After the destruction of the Dragon Family, the strongest of their warriors and only survivor, Bichura, planned on assassinating prince Kucabara, but couldn't kill him as he didn't resisted. Two years later, Kucabara and Bichura started interacting and eventually became friends, then, the Demon King conspired to make them kill each other, eventually, they clashed, but their strength was equal and they took several hours fighting. The king, tired of waiting, thrown them on the deep abyss under the Slaughter Colosseum, the Hole of Distress, for ninety days so they would have to kill eachother in order to live. Kucabara was secretly receiving food from a servant, but giving all of it to Bichura, eventualy, he fainted. Bichura, in order to preserve his "master"'s life, faked his death at his hands, eventualy, he fainted as well and Kucabara was rescued. Kucabara then asked his father to spare Bichura's life, so that he could kill him himself. When the time came at the arena, they clashed again, but not as expected, the deathmatch was actualy a rock-paper-scissors game, the king was deeply enraged and tried executing them both with monsters, but they beat all of them and were overlooked by the king since then.
The Demon King Mephisto (Kucabara's father), killed his two older sons because of their weakness and told Kucabara to give up his kindness, or otherwise he would kill his younger brother, Legato, as well. After ths, Kucabara was said to have become a monster who "kills both subordinates and friends", but he was just pretending, as he was still kind near his closest friends.
Kucabara told Legato he would be the kindest of all Demon Kings, and that he would change the Demon World's very nature. It was later revealed that Legato actualy felt disgusted of his brother, and thought that he wasn't fit for being the Demon King. And so he started conspiracing against his brother, ending up throwing Kucabara on the Human World during a Solar Eclipse.
After falling on the Human World, Kucabara met Dukon, a "suspicious oldman" who stole his sword and, eventualy, teached Kucabara about "wisdom". When the both of them were eating at a firepit, Royal Guards wounded Dukon, enraging Kucabara, who killed all of them. The king then sent the Royal Army to bring him back (kill if necessary), Kucabara revealed his true nature, destroying a good part of the army with his power. At some point, Legato appeared, immediately immobilizing Kucabara, and saying he would kill him and become the next Demon King. Kucabara said he still had a lot of things to protect, and that if he spared his life, he could have all of his massive power to himself, then, Legato absorbed all of the Dark Matter inside of his brother's body and sent him to the borders of the Demon World, known as Event Horizon.
About three months after being exiled, Kucabara, along with Bichura, became a "defense lawyer" for the unknowns, souls that are sent to neither to hell nor to heaven, ending up on Event Horizon. Kucabara then saved many souls from the damnation by contracting with them and proving their innocence. He also defeated many shinigami in the process.
Shortly after being unsuccesfuly hunted by Idamaria, Kucabara tried to travel to the Demon World, but wasn't powerful enough, so Elimona sent him to the church where Idamaria and Father Selma were living so he could train along with them. After some time a demon arrived at the monastery and kidnaped a little girl named Jupiter, who developed feelings for Kucabara and told him to come to the Demon World in three days, or the girl would be thrown into a fire hell. After that, Kucabara and Idamaria passed through a rigorous train in order to sincronize their energies. After it was concluded, Shugarl appeared along with the missing Jupiter and Kucabara, Bichura and Idamaria were able to travel to the Demon World inside Jody, promissing that they would take her parents out of hell.
In the Salamander Hell, Kucabara and Bichura had to kill a fierce Kelsa Marcati while defending from an army of Dark Matter-powered demons while Idamaria faced Brillhearth, but easily beat her after partially releasing Lilith. After beating the kelsa, Kucabara asked Elimona to take the living humans back to the Human World and moved to the next hell, as Jupiter's parents weren't inside the Salamander Hell. In the region of Sky's Rock, Legato informed Kucabara of their father's death and said he would never be able to beat Gigades, guardian of Stone Hell, because even their father couldn't do it, thus, revealing he ordered the king's assassination himself. In the Stone Hell's enrance, Idamaria was kidnaped by Gigades and took inside of the hell along with a thousand unknowns. Jody noticed that there were many gigades inside the hell, and all high-levels. Samus appeared and "healed" Kucabara's wounds using the Black Dragon Tail medicine (which is actualy a deadly poison that kills in 24 hours). When they entered the stone hell, they found themselves on the midle of a sort of foosball game, using unknowns lifting giant stone statues as players and a semi-cruxyfied human (Idamaria) as ball. After beating all of the gigades, Kucabara's Team headed to the next hell, the Phoenix Hell, passing through a tornado field with the help of Bird's illusion. In Phoenix Hell, they found Jupiter's parents, who didn't wanted to go to the Human World because they believed they were sinners, stills, Kucabara and Bichura climbed the Phoenix Tower and met up with the ruler of the hell, Phoenix, who dwells inside the mirror. Phoenix says that if they can obtain proof of Jupiter's parents' innocence, he will let them go, Kucabara and Bichura then start an investigation. It is then revealed that the champion of the Slaughter Colosseum, Branen Cooper, is coming for the sinners' souls and that Kucabara has about two hours to get the Innocence Item. As he can't find any, he goes back to Phoenix just to discover he was the one who caused the accident. Kucabara destroyes Phoenix's mirror, revealing his true form, a massive flaming bird. After Kucabara defeats Phoenix, he goes back to his friends' location and find Branen Cooper dead and Shugarl dying. Jupiter's parents came back to the Human World and Shugarl's ghost appeared before her as she remembered him. Idamaria went back to the Human World as if Lilith freed herself again, it could mean the end of her sanity.
Shortly after Idamaria left the Demon World, Demon King Legato appears before Kucabara, Bichura, Samus and Jody. Legato then takes Kucabara and the rest to the Devil Staircase for their battle, saying it is their 'last battlefield'. As Legato teleported Kucabara and Bichura, they fought their way through a horde of demons and Kucabara entered the Devil Double X, where he found the entire Royal Family being kept inside meatsacks. Legato mentions he's like a Devil Kanuru parasite, using his relatives to extend his life. Kelia then asks Jody to stop the brothers' battle, as there's a much bigger conspiracy behind of it.
The Fallen Angel Edit
It is revealed that Kucabara's brother, Legato, was actualy the "good guy" who wanted to free the Demon World of the angels' domination, even if it meant causing the realm's destruction. His father also acted evil as well as the rest of his family, Kucabara states that "his family's hearts are as pure as those of angels". Elimona is revealed to be a fallen angel who wants to steal Legato's Collected Dark Matter so she can reascend to the skies. Kucabara's mother, Kelia, is also revealed to be the fallen angel who brought the Apocalypse Potion to Event Horizon. Legato gets killed in front of Kucabara, who runs to help him, Elimona prepares herself to kill both brothers but is stopped by Shugarl.
Powers & Abilities Edit
