Synopsis[edit]

A story about doctors and exorcists protecting people together at a Catholic hospital in Seoul.

Characters[edit]

Oh Soo-min[edit]

A dutiful and reckless Catholic priest who is a member of 643 Regia. Twenty years prior to the series, Soo-min and his father, along with priest Moon Ki-seon, witnessed the death of his mother at a young age, where she was possessed and killed by a demon due to his father's refusal to believe in exorcism preventing her from receiving one. Under priest Moon's tutelage, he becomes an exorcist.

Ham Eun-ho[edit]

A doctor at Southern Catholic Hospital who lost her faith in God at a young age when her parents died in front of her in an accident, she first encountered Soo-min when her most recent patient turns out to be possessed by an evil entity. Witnessing the exorcism of both the patient and the subsequent possession of a colleague by the same entity caused her to begin rethinking her beliefs.

Moon Ki-seon[edit]

A senior Catholic priest who founded 643 Regia, a group of priests that performs exorcism unofficially while still recognized by the Vatican. When he was younger, he was called upon by Soo-min to save his mother but was too late. He was the one who takes Soo-min under his wing and taught him how to conduct exorcisms.
