How Shura joined the Tourney
Shura first appears disguised as a young man, named "Yamada", attending the Exorcist Cram School at the True Cross Academy. "Yamada" didn't get along with the others, due to the fact that he kept his face hidden under a hoodie and always concerned with playing his PSP. When "Yamada" saves Rin from Amaimon, during their fight in the amusement park, she reveals her true identity as Shura Kirigakure, an Upper First Class Exorcist and an inspector for the Vatican.
After revealing herself, Shura, escorted by Yukio, takes Rin to the True Cross Order Japanese Branch Headquarters, which is located beneath the True Cross Academy. They meet Mephisto Pheles and Shura questions him on why he withheld information about Satan's son from the Vatican. Shura then takes Rin into an interrogation room where she reveals that she was a student of Shiro Fujimoto's. She then fakes an injury in order to take Kurikara away from Rin. After seeing Rin's blue flames she draws her sword and explains that she was given orders to eliminate anything related to Satan and tells him that she is going to kill him. Just before she can stab him in the chest, Rin grabs her blade and states that he will become the Paladin to prove that Shiro was right for letting him live.
Later on that night Shura informs Mephisto that she will be postponing her report to the Vatican, but she will continue to observe Rin. As she is about to leave she asks Mephisto one more time what he is scheming and he tells her that he wants to bring peace to Assiah. The following day Shura introduces herself to the class at the Exorcist Cram School, where she will be teaching magic circles, sealing techniques, and sword techniques.
While teaching magic circles to a class, Shura learns of a new threat, the original god of war, Ares had awakened.
