Akaze is a part of the Twelve Kizuki, specifically holding the Upper-Rank Three. It makes him one of the most powerful Demons under Muzan. His desire to gain more strength is a major push for him to become better. But one major setback for him is that he does not consume all humans, unlike other demons
An interesting aspect of Akaze is that he fights without any weapons, favoring the use of his fists. Sadly, he ended up dying after he lost the will to live when he regained the entirety of his human memories.
