The light novel, manga, and anime series High School DxD features a diverse cast of characters created by Ichiei Ishibumi and Miyami-Zero. The plot focuses on , a perverted young man attending Kuoh Academy who is killed by his first date, a Fallen Angel. He is later revived by , a crimson-haired girl and school beauty who reveals herself as a devil. Issei soon discovers from her that he has been reborn as a Devil made to serve the Gremory Family of Devils, thus beginning his new life in the . As of Volume 10, most of the main characters have moved into the Hyodo Residence.

is the male protagonist of the series. A second-year student at Kuoh Academy, he is a pervert who has a habit of fantasizing, and is well known for being creepy at the Academy, but, in contrast to this, he is also surprisingly hot-blooded and hard-working. His first girlfriend, , suddenly kills him, but Rias saves him and brings him back to life as a Devil of her own clan, making him a member of the Occult Research Club. His rank is "Pawn", and while his powers as a Devil are low-ranking, on his left arm he wields a Sacred Gear called "Boosted Gear". He works hard day and night for the sake of his master, a the high-ranking Devil named Rias. His goal is to one day rise in rank into a high-ranking Devil so that he can gather his own servants and create his own harem, becoming a .

Despite the fact that he is a pervert, he attracts numerous girls around him: Rias, Asia, Akeno, Koneko, Xenovia, Irina and Ravel. This is due to him wanting to protect and help them despite almost dying at the hands of his opponents. He is oblivious to the girls around him being in love with him. Early on in the series, Rias explains the reason why she cannot have any more Pawns other than him is because she had to use all eight Pawn pieces to bring him back to life; the reason it took all eight Pawn pieces is because the more powerful someone is or has potential for, the more pieces it takes to resurrect them as a Devil and his Sacred Gear raises his potential very high.

In the light novels, it is revealed that Issei's Sacred Gear has more capabilities then what has been shown before. The Boosted Gear is actually a forbidden Gear which starts off as a gauntlet at its first stage. While training and mastering its powers, the Sacred Gear will begin to spread throughout the body as an armor. Once fully mastered, it is said to be able to kill a Maou or a God. This is because the gauntlet doubles the user's power every 10 seconds without limit, the only restriction being the user's own ability to handle the power. Hence why Angels, Fallen Angels, and Devils fear this power. Additional powers will be either unlocked or created based on the thoughts and feelings of the wielder as he/she uses and masters the Boosted Gear.
