Azul Baldwin is a recurring character of unknown loyalty in The Demon's Light.
Azul was born on Euclid, many years ago in the continent of Hala. At a young age, Azul had the great honor of meeting Xeren himself. This came about while he was saved the life of a woman named Tina (secretly a demigod child of Xeren, although he has long since forgotten her) who he later wed. At some point, he had kids, although none of their names have been revealed yet. Little else is known about his family life, but it is known he has some sort of connection to Oliver Baldwin. Following his saving Tina's life, Xeren gifted with immortality via strong devices attached all over his body. Despite being immortal, Azul and Tina settled down with their family, but things became heated when Azul's whole family was kidnapped by an evil demon, leading him to never see them again. Instead, Azul retreated into the woods and befriended many animals living there, causing him to switch to vegetarianism. Eventually, Azul started to destroy his devices, believing them to be only curses. The protagonists have encountered him many times in forests and other obscure locations. While he does help them and inhibits marvelous knowledge, he never stays around long enough to see the results of his plans.
Azul has white hair and clear ocean-green eyes. He is 6 feet. He used to wear metallic tanks attached to his arms and legs, a helmet on his head, shoulder pads, and a back brace; but has since started to shatter and discard them, as an effort to decrease his immortality.
