The Druids are a clan of humans who live deep within the forests of Britannia.


They are a forest dwelling people who worship the Goddess Clan while despising the Demon Clan, although Meliodas seems to be the exception. They are insular, living away from most other people. They are referred to as the philosophers and sorcerers of the forest. When a person dies, it is customary for them to guard the buried corpses to prevent any possession from evil spirits.


Their appearance does not differ from normal humans, however a common, but not universal trait of theirs, is white or silver hair.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

The druids are said to be able to use the power of nature to heal grievous wounds that are considered fatal. They have many secret techniques although condemned the Acid power. These secret techniques include:

  • Purge浄化 (パージ)  Jōka (Pāji); literally meaning "Purify"」: A secret druid technique that erases "abominable" souls, such a vampires and demons. It has also shown to be able to return human turned vampires back into human, albeit still killing them.
  • Shisha Shieki死者使役 (ししゃしえき)  Shisha Shieki; literally meaning "Enslavement of the Dead"」: A forbidden technique passed among the druids. It gives Hendrickson the power to resurrect the dead, but can only be used twice on the same person. The soul deteriorates with each resurrection, significantly weakening their abilities.


Throughout the story, numerous seemingly unintelligible spells have been either taught to by or cast by a druid. These spells are actually transcribed by using anagrams of the original Japanese words that are used to compose the incantation.
