Well well you just walked into the wrong house, my friend! Freed Sellzen here at your service, and you must be the scared little pussy who's devil ass this holy priest is going to exorcise!
~ Freed introducing himself to Issei

Freed Sellzen is a recurring antagonist in the light novel High School DxD, as well as its anime adaptation.

He is a stray exorcist who first allied with the Fallen Angels in Raynare's plot to steal Asia's Sacred Gear until he betrayed her by leaving her to die at the hands of the Occult Club. He later Kokabiel's plan to start another war between the angels, fallen angels, and devils.


Freed is a young man with short white hair and red eyes. As a priest, he was dressed in clerical clothing and often had a disturbing smile on his face. As a Chimera, he had a massive body, thick arms and legs, and sharp fangs coming out of his mouth. He also had a single bat wing and an extra arm coming out of his back.


A battle maniac, Freed preferred violence over logic, spoke in a vulgar way, and was somewhat insane and psoychotic. He killed monsters and Devils for the sake of his own pleasure. He hates Devils. Freed was also shown to be a pervert, as he once threatened to rape Asia for disobeying him and even asked Raynare to have sex with him in exchange for saving her from Rias. He is also traitorous when Raynare failed to acquire "Twilight Healing", Freed betrayed Raynare by leaving her to die without a moment hesitation.


Freed previously trained at the same institution as Siegfried, and was considered to be a genius exorcist at the age of 13. Freed, however, did not believe in God from the start, as he only wanted to kill monsters. Eventually, he became a wanted criminal at the Vatican and was forced to run away, joining the Fallen Angels in the process.

He murdered Issei's client before attacking Issei who (at the time) was lacking any battle experience, and nearly killed, Asia screamed when he was about to kill her that interrupted him, he asked what she was doing. She protected him, she cried and begged him not to kill him. He was annoyed and slashed at her clothing. Issei told him not to touch her. He still got mad that she did not do anything with the barrier. Gremory Team arrived to save them. Freed aggressively hurt Asia for not doing anything with the barrier. When Issei, Yuuto and Koneko went to the abandoned Church to rescue Asia Argento, Freed reappeared in front of them, revealing that he was working under Raynare and battled the three of them before retreating after being at a disadvantage. After Raynare was defeated by Issei, Freed showed himself again with Raynare ordering him to save her but was rejected by Freed who then betrayed/abandoned her and retreated after proclaiming that he would be the one to kill Issei.

Freed shows up again, this time as Kokabiel's underling after they stole three of the Excaliburs. When Issei, Koneko, Yuuto and Saji formed a temporary alliance with Xenovia and Irina Shidou to destroy the Excaliburs, Freed showed himself to them, wanting to test the power of Excalibur Rapidly before retreating with Valper Galilei as Irina, Xenovia, and Yuuto chased them. After Kokabiel fended off Irina, gravely injuring the girl, Freed was handed the four Excaliburs: Rapidly, Transparent, Nightmare, and Mimic by Kokabiel, prior to them being fused together. Freed then used the Fused Excalibur to battle Yuuto and Xenovia but ultimately lost after the revelation of Durandal and was cut down. His body was retrieved by Vali Lucifer along with Kokabiel and was reattached by Azazel before he left the Grigori and joined the Khaos Brigade.

During his time in the Khaos Brigade, Freed's body was modified into a Chimera and during Rias and Diodora's supposed Rating Game, devouring Diodora's two Knights before being cut down by Yuuto in a flash and was killed.

Powers and Abilities

As an Exorcist, Freed wielded a light sword and an exorcist gun which shoots special light bullets, both of which were extremely dangerous to Devils. During his alliance with Kokabiel, Freed wielded three of the seven Excaliburs: "Excalibur Rapidly", "Excalibur Nightmare", and "Excalibur Transparency", prior to them being merged with Excalibur Mimic in order to form the Fused Excalibur.

During his appearance in Volume 6, he had been transformed into a Chimera and had higher physical abilities than before.


"Punish the wicked". Words to live by. Yes, wise advice to heed from a holy man. (snickers sinisterly)
~ Freed's Introduction
Summoning you was proof that he's done being human. END OF THE LINE, SINNER! So I had to chop him up into little bitty pieces.
~ Freed to Issei about the person he just murdered
Putting down degenerate devils and the lost souls that would cry out to them is my job, and no one is better at it than me!

First I'm going to cut out your evil heart with my heavenly blade of light,then with my righteous gun im going to blow a hole in your wicked demon face,HOW DOES THAT SOUND DEVIL?!

~ Freed preparing to fight Issei Kiba and Koneko
The Thought of tearing away your flesh and eating it piece by piece makes my mouth water!(licks gun barrel)
~ Freed's Insane death threat to Issei Kiba and Koneko
(Issei:Tell me where she is!)Oh right,you mean that dirty devil-loving whore of a sister,all you have to do is go down to the basement shes right beneath the altar we're currently standing on.(Kiba:Downstairs)(Issei:Right)But first you have to go through me.
~ Freed insulting Asia and telling Issei Kiba and Koneko where she is before fighting them
You're pretty strong for a runt, aren't you?
~ Freed insulting Koneko.
Well, you're not so bad yourself. Of course, that only makes me wanna kill you even more.
~ Freed fighting Kiba.
I'll be damned if a bunch of devils are going to get the best of Freed Sellzen,you won the battle but not the war,scum! Ha!

~ Freed calling out to Kiba after murdering a priest
Such a wonderful reunion! It's bringing a tear to mine eye!(laughs Jokingly)
~ Freed faking happiness to Kiba
(Kiba:Unfortunately for you I'm not in the best mood today.)(Laughs hysterically)That's perfect I need some fun! These pussified priests are getting so boring
~ Freed preparing to fight Kiba
(Kiba:No that light,that aura it can't be.)Oh but it can! Nice timing! As penance for your previous actions let's have a little test to see which is stronger.So tell me what you think Will your filthy cursed sword be the one?(His tone begins to change and sounds more insane)Or do you think it's more likely the holy sword known as Excalibur will be the victor?!
~ Freed preparing to use Excalibur Rapidly against Kiba
(Chuckles)Time to die!
~ Freed attacks Kiba
Hasn't anyone told you to heed the faces you make? We wouldn't want our pretty little prince getting stuck that way. Luckily Excalibur isn't picky,IT'S SIMPLY HUNGRY FOR YOUR BLOOD!

~ Freed Insulting Kiba's attempts to hurt him
Aw,someone forgot to warn you.This holy sword absolutely despises devils.Phooey.
~ Freed insulting Kiba after he lands a painful hit on him
That's cheating!(Kiba:That's what devils do!)
~ Freed after Kiba trips him during their battle
Nice move,kiddo.(notices something behind him) Oh shit!(Kiba charges) I hate to cut this short but someone more important is calling!It's been fun that's all,folks!
~ Freed retreats during his fight with Kiba

~ Freed to Kiba Saji Issei and Koneko
You know I was really looking forward to some good ol' priest hunting tonight,but all I found was a bunch of devils in costumes (Licks blade).
~ Freed expressing his disappointment to Kiba Saji Issei and Koneko

~ Freed unleashing his sword's power on Xenovia
(Valper:This crystal contains the correct quantity of the gene.It's the last one made from those pathetic little brats!) (laughs evilly)The other guys they tested the crystals on died halfway in because they were too weak to take all the gene goodness!If you think about it that way,you're lucky to be fighting ONE OF A KIND!
~ Freed and Valper attempting to break Kiba while Freed also reveals he is one of the only ones left infused with the holy sword gene nicknamed artificials

~ Freed when Xenovia and Kiba destroy his holy sword
Yo yo yo! Long time no see, suckers!
~ Freed returns as Rias and the others attempt to save Asia from Diodora Astaroth
Yes! Yes! I'm hard to kill, that's a fact. As you can see, I'm still totally alive and kicking!
~ Freed commenting on his supposed death during Kokabiel's attack.
After our last encounter I was scooped up by that whack-job Vali.To make a long story short the Khaos Brigade picked up the psycho-priest free agent standing in front of you.
~ Freed revealing he is a member of the Khaos Brigade
His knight? (laughs wickedly) I ATE 'EM BOTH! THEY WERE FINGER-LICKIN' GOOD!
~ Freed revealing he killed and ate both of Diodora's knights
(Laughing Insanely as his laughs get more deformed)(Gasper:Thats nasty!)(in a deformed voice)Since we're all old friends here, let me share a tidbit of gossip with you.It's a tasty secret about Diodora's household.You know,all those pretty young girls you just beat up? Every one of them was a well respected nun before Diodora got his greasy mitts on 'em a couple of 'em were even saints! (Xenovia:What did you say?!) Diodora the explorah loves bringing passionate holy women down to the depths of hell with smiles and sweet talk.That's how the freak gets off! (deformed hysterical laughter)
~ Freed after transforming into a Chimera
Once upon a time there was a spoiled highborn devil brat. He saw a holy woman that was as pretty as a peach. Blonde petite .I'm talking totally his type.But the woman was a guarded treasure of the church,so he knew there was no way he could kidnap her and get away with it. So,the clever devil brat came up with a plan. If the people of the church saw her healing an injured agent of Hell like him, then they would excommunicate her,so he took a chance. Once she hit rock bottom in despair over the church's betrayal he'd snatch the girl up when she was at her lowest and make her his completely!Ravishing both body and soul.A man's gotta have a vice! And Diodora loves breaking the will of little young girls like her more than anything else!
~ Freed revealing that Asia saving Diodora and being called a heretic by her chuch was just Diodora's plan to get closer to Asia
Look what we have here! It's the pretty boy knight who used his scary sword to cut me down last time we met! But,no hard feelings.I got this bodacious body upgrade because of you!
~ Freed prepares to face Kiba once again
~ Freed charges at Kiba
Oh come on! When the hell did you get so strong?! Well it won't matter soon.You chumps don't stand a snowball's chance in hell of beating the big shots pulling the strings.
~ Freed's last words
