Japanese Name
Shoots ricocheting bullets

Lerajie is a demonic foe from Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin and Harmony of Despair. She uses a hunting rifle that shoots ricocheting bullets.


Leraje has his origins as a demon in the medieval grimoires. One of Leraje's earliest known appearances as a demon is from the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum (1577) as Loray or Oray. Most of the information from this book appears to have been copied by the author of the Ars Goetia (mid-17th century), a section from the book Lesser Key of Solomon, also known as the Clavicula Salomonis Regis or Lemegeton.

Leraje is the 14th demon listed in the Ars Goetia and is described as a mighty Great Marquis of Hell who commands thirty legions of demons. He causes great battles and disputes and can cause arrow wounds to develop gangrene.

The name Leraje appears to be derived from the angel Leyraiell, "one of the angels of the day of Venus", from the Liber Juratus Honorii or The Sworne Booke of Honorius (13th century or earlier). Notably, Leyraiell is not mentioned to be a fallen angel, but appears to have received the label of demon in later grimoires.

How exactly Lerajie's appearance in the Castlevania series was inspired is uncertain, but her using a hunting rifle and having a green skin tone may be a reference to Leraje's depiction as a handsome archer wearing green clothes and carrying a bow and arrows in the various grimoires.

  • Even though Leraje, the demon from which Lerajie is based on, is a male, the Castlevania enemy is actually a female, and her voice fits accordingly in the Japanese audio of Portrait of Ruin. Oddly enough, her voice was changed to that of a male in the English audio, which may bring some controversy to her already ambiguous gender, as her overall design has a proper female body, but with a hairstyle and wearing a suit more fitting to that of a male character.
