The Bookman
 is the head member of the Bookman clan and an Exorcist and member of the European Branch of the Black Order, though this affiliation only exists so he and his apprentice, Lavi, can record the world's history as it unfolds. "Bookman" is not his birth name. After meeting Goofy, and Barrel, he gave both of them a book that's full of mystery and he tolds them not to tell anyone unless the people they trust can keep the secret too.
