Allen Walker (Japanese: アレン・ウォーカー, Hepburn: Aren Wōkā) is the fictional protagonist of the manga series D.Gray-man, created by Japanese artist and writer Katsura Hoshino. In the series, set on 19th-century Earth, Walker is a teenager who joins the Black Order (a group of soldiers known as Exorcists). As an Exorcist, Allen uses a mysterious object (Innocence) to fight the demons known as Akuma. Allen's Innocence, which initially assumes the form of a giant left arm, evolves to give him new abilities. Allen uses these powers to fight the Millennium Earl (who created an army of Akuma to destroy the world) and his superhuman followers, the Noah Family. He learns that he is connected to the Noah, and might become one of them.

Hoshino based Allen's characterization on Robin, the shorter-haired female protagonist of her one-shot comic Zone. She designed Allen's clothing to resemble that of the nineteenth century, giving him a ribbon tie and other accessories to appear gentlemanly. Hoshino gave him a pentagram-shaped scar for an intimidating image, and a calm demeanor different from her typical rambunctious, rude characters. In the anime television series, Allen was voiced by Sanae Kobayashi. The voices were recast for the 2016 anime television series D.Gray-man Hallow, with Ayumu Murase replacing Kobayashi. In the English adaptation of the anime series, Allen has been voiced by Todd Haberkorn.

Allen is popular with D.Gray-man readers, usually ranking in the top three on the series' popularity polls, and reaction has been generally positive in manga and anime publications and other media. His characterization has been praised, with critics noting that his calm demeanor and mysterious origin are atypical of a shōnen protagonist. Some reviewers also enjoyed Allen's multiple voice actors. Merchandise has been offered with Allen's likeness, including plush dolls, figurines, clothing and cosplay pieces. In addition to being the protagonist of the anime adaptation series D.Gray-man and its sequel, D.Gray-man Hallow, he has appeared in three light novels, two video games and several crossover fighting games.

Concept and creation

A page with five rough sketches of a young boy with a scar above his left eye and a younger character.
Two early designs of Allen

Manga creator Katsura Hoshino said that she did not know how Allen originated, since she likes her main characters to be rambunctious, rude idiots.[vol. 1:61] She said that the general idea for his design was an "energetic youth with messy fly-a-way hair and other things like that", but when he was drawn with the uniform of the Black Order (the group Allen joins in the series) she sensed a "lack of coordination".[5] Hoshino felt that a more-mature design would be better;[5] although she believed his final design looked best with the Black Order uniform, she wondered if it should be more masculine.[vol. 1:61] Because he is an Exorcist, she wanted him to have a "very scary-looking image" and added the scar on his left forehead; the scar changed shape several times before becoming a pentagram. Since Hoshino wanted the Order and its enemies to have visual contrast, she gave Allen and the Exorcists black cloaks to convey a "gloomy" impression. Allen's clothing is drawn from Hoshino's general impression of the late nineteenth century, and his ribbon tie and other accessories are intended to project a "gentlemanly image".[5]

Hoshino based Allen on Robin, the protagonist of her one-shot comic Zone.[vol. 1:61] Comparing the two, she called Allen a "different kind of boy".[5] Hoshino drew Allen with longer hair, and found it difficult to decide on a hairstyle.[vol. 1:61] In the end, she parted his hair in the center to emphasize his facial expressions.[5] According to Hoshino's first editor, Allen was originally going to be a modified Akuma who looked like a boy. She was advised by her editor to make Allen cry to make him seem more vulnerable.[6]

The author noted wryly that later in the series Allen's hair became similar to a Super Saiyan, a transformation in the Dragon Ball series where the character's hair becomes spiky.[vol. 11:2] Hoshino said that early in D.Gray-man's publication, Allen was one of the hardest characters to draw.[vol. 3:86] By the tenth volume, she said that the character was more difficult to draw than Yu Kanda.[vol. 10:204] In the manga's first chapters, Allen's eyes have had different colors (such as red and light blue) due to a discussion between Hoshino and her editor; it was later decided to give him silver eyes.[vol. 4:72] The series' title, D.Gray-man, is meant to have several meanings, (most referring to the state of Allen and the other main characters).[vol. 3:26]

Personality and attributes

A black-haired adult, smiling
Todd Haberkorn voiced Allen Walker in the English dub of the series.

Introduced as a "gentleman",[5] Allen's characterization has changed to the point that Hoshino wrote an interview between the character and herself. In the interview she complained to Allen about his change from "pure and innocent" to a "corrupted" character, calling him "Dark Allen". "Allen" replied that the change must be due to the series' dark setting, and Hoshino apologized.[vol. 9:191] She demonstrated Allen's dark side when the character struck his master, Cross Marian, in anger at his inability to learn how he would become the 14th Noah: Nea. According to Hoshino, Cross Marian was angry with Allen for the attack but enjoyed seeing this side of his student.[7]

Allen left the Black Order because the previous story arc had too many characters and required too much effort. Hoshino was pleased with her portrayal of Allen's farewell to comrade Lenalee Lee because it indicated that the character had matured. She noted that Allen had grown taller; early in the series, he and Lenalee were the same height. Hoshino said that although Allen's departure fit the series' tragic theme, he would always have comrades.[8] Allen and Kanda part on good terms in the previous story arc despite their frequent arguments, and Hoshino said that Kanda would assist him in the next storyline.[9]

When Allen left the Order, Hoshino said that the character had become difficult to write. Allen is a philanthropist, and Hoshino said wryly that she was not equally kind. Because of Jump Square's (the manga's magazine at the time) young male audience, Hoshino said that she wanted to characterize Allen as a cheerful person rather than a troubled teenager. However, she found it difficult because his life became more complicated as the series progressed. Hoshino tries to balance Allen between "strength and sorrow", and has required an occasional hiatus. She said that the most challenging part of Allen's face was his smile; he often smiles, sometimes when he is lying or unhappy. After Allen left the Order, Hoshino told readers that his life might be arduous and joked that he would cheat at gambling (learned while training with Cross Marian).[10]

In the first animated version of D.Gray-man Allen was voiced by Sanae Kobayashi, whom Hoshino praised for capturing the character.[vol. 9:187] For its anime sequel, D.Gray-man Hallow, Kobayashi was replaced by Ayumu Murase.[3] Allen was voiced by Todd Haberkorn for the two series' English-language dubs; according to Haberkorn, he enjoyed voicing the character.[11] In 2016, Haberkorn stated that if he could voice Allen once again he would pierce his ears.[12]

Appearances

In D.Gray-man

Allen was born with a deformed left arm from the effects of a rare object, known as Innocence. Abandoned by his parents, he was raised in a circus and meets clown Mana Walker (who adopts him when his contract with the circus expires).[vol. 1:62, ch166] When Mana dies, Allen tries to resurrect him through Millennium Earl. Mana, revived as a demon known as an Akuma, cuts Allen's left eye. Allen's deformed left arm awakens as an anti-Akuma weapon, later called "Cross" (十字架, Kurosu, lit. "Cross Stand"), and destroys Mana. His left eye allows him to see the souls of Akuma. Exorcist General Cross Marian soon adopts Allen as a disciple.[ch. 3]

When Allen completes his Exorcist training he is sent to Black Order headquarters, where he meets other Exorcists.[ch. 7] With his new comrades, he goes with other Exorcists on missions to recover other Innocences scattered around the world. Allen finds people compatible with the Innocence, who become his allies. He fights the Millennium Earl, his army of Akuma and the Noah Family, a group of immortal humans who help the Earl and want to destroy the world.[ch. 8, 19] Allen and four other Exorcists are sent to locate and protect Cross, since the Millennium Earl has attacked Exorcist generals in his search for the Heart (the most powerful Innocence).[ch. 29] Allen leaves the group to save a traitor from the Black Order,[ch. 53] and a Noah (Tyki Mikk) nearly kills him.[ch. 56] Allen stays at the Black Order's Asia Branch headquarters to recover from the experience.[ch. 57, 59]

During his stay at the Asian Branch headquarters, Allen's Innocence takes its true form: the Crown Clown (神ノ道化, Kuraun Kuraun, lit. "Clown of God"), a cape-like Innocence which is armor and has a small claw (allowing Allen to perform new techniques).[ch. 187] He rejoins his comrades in Edo,[ch. 85, 89] where the group is trapped in Noah's Ark. As they look for a way off the Ark, Allen and his friends fight the Noah. In his rematch with Tyki, Allen transforms his left arm into a sword which exorcises evil (allowing him to win).[ch. 116, 117] When Cross appears and saves Allen from Tyki's new Noah appearance, he directs him to restore the falling Ark by playing a piano.[ch. 129, 132] Returning to headquarters, Allen learns that he is the host of the late 14th Noah (Nea), who betrayed the Earl, was killed and was related to Mana. Before his death, Nea implanted his memories in Allen so he would be reborn.[ch. 167] All Exorcists are ordered to kill Allen before he begins transforming into a Noah.[ch. 170] While Allen controls his body, he begins turning into Nea; Crown Clown's sword hurts him, despite its only affecting Noah and Akuma.[ch. 182, 184]

When the Black Order commands Allen to destroy the Akuma of Alma Karma, Allen sends Alma to another location with fellow Exorcist Yu Kanda so they will find peace.[ch. 199] Allen is imprisoned by the Order, who fear the reappearance of Nea.[ch. 201] He is attacked by Apocryphos (a sentient Innocence), who tries to assimilate Allen's Innocence.[ch. 203] Two Noah (Tyki and Road Kamelot) rescue Allen, making the Order believe that he has betrayed them and is joining the Noah.[ch. 204] Allen refuses help from the Order and the Noah, but promises his comrade Lenalee Lee that he will remain an Exorcist.[ch. 205] Disguising himself as a clown, he goes into hiding. An Akuma attack reunites Allen with Kanda and the scientist Johnny, who left the Order to help him. Nea reawakens, and is confronted by the Earl.[ch. 212 ,216] Allen's mind begins to leave his body, and Cross' illusion tells him to meet Katerina Eve Campbell to learn the truth behind Nea and Mana.[ch. 222]

In other media

In addition to appearing in the manga and anime series, Allen is a playable character in two D.Gray-man video games.[13][14] He is a playable (or support) character in the crossover fighting games Jump Super Stars, Jump Ultimate Stars and J-Stars Victory Vs, which pit Weekly Shōnen Jump characters against each other.[15][16][17] An insert song by Sanae Kobayashi in the first anime, "Hands Sealed With a Kiss" (つないだ手にキスを, Tsunaida Te Ni Kisu o) (played while Allen restores Noah's Ark), was included on the series' third CD soundtrack.[18]

Allen also appears in Kaya Kizaki's D.Gray-man light novel series. The first novel documents his search for Black Order headquarters after Cross orders him to find it and then disappears. After killing Akuma, Allen learns the Order's location from a woman named Mother.[19] In the second novel, he is a supporting character who attends the Black Order's reunion party.[20] Allen appears briefly in the first chapter of the third novel, greeting the Black Order scientist Rohfa (who is infatuated with him). The second chapter follows his life in the circus—when he was known as Red (レッド, Reddo)—and befriends a clown (Mana) and his dog (Allen). The dog is killed by another clown, and Red attacks Mana when he does mourn him; Mana loses his memory and acts strangely. After an Akuma destroys the circus, Red (whom Mana mistakes for his dog) adopts the name "Allen" and travels with the clown.[21]

Characteristics

When the series begins, Allen is about 15 years old.[vol. 1:61] Although most of his colleagues assume he is ageing normally, one of his enemies (Nea, who later possesses his body), suspects that he may be growing younger.[ch. 215] Allen is often accompanied by Timcampy, a small flying golem given him by his mentor (Exorcist general Cross Marian).[ch. 1] As a result of the trauma of attempting to revive his guardian, Mana Walker, Allen's reddish-brown hair becomes white. Mana's curse of the boy's left eye allows Allen to distinguish Akuma from humans. Allen is devoted to helping the Akuma find peace until he meets the Exorcists of the Black Order, who become his friends. Realizing that he fights to save the souls of the Akuma and for his human friends, he devotes himself equally to both causes.[ch. 83] Allen's master, Cross Marian, notes that the boy (originally cynical and rude), has adopted Mana's formal speech, mannerisms and personality.[ch. 173] Allen begins to speak less formally during the series, reverting to his speech before he met Mana.[ch. 165]

Reception

Popularity

Allen is popular with D.Gray-man readers, and was the most-popular character in the series' first Shōnen Jump poll.[vol. 7:117] He dropped to second in the second poll, behind Yu Kanda.[ch. 121] The character returned to first place in the third poll,[ch. 171] falling behind Kanda again in the fourth.[22] Allen has also been popular outside D.Gray-man, and was the 20th-most-popular anime character in an Animedia poll.[23] He also ranked 20th in a 2007 Newtype character poll.[24] In Newtype, Allen was nominated as the fifth-best male character of the 2016 anime season for his role in D.Gray-man Hallow.[25] The character was voted the 17th-best "guy" in an Anime News Network poll,[26] and was 46th in a 2016 Animage poll of top 100 anime characters for his role in Hallow.[27] Anime News Network listed him as the third best anime exorcist based on his tragic backstory and weaponry used to exorcise Akumas.[28]

Allen-related merchandise, including key chains,[29] plush dolls[30] figurines,[31] clothing[32] and cosplay pieces have been marketed;[33] with other series characters, he has been popular with cosplayers.[34] For Halloween 2016 new merchandise (with Allen often disguised as a vampire) was developed, and a piña colada drink was based on the character.[35]

Critical response

Manga, anime, video-game and related media publications have praised and criticized the character. Sheena McNeil of the online magazine Sequential Tart liked Allen's design, calling his anti-Akuma weapon "quite impressive" in visually represents his strength. According to McNeil, the combination of his cursed left eye and his white hair make him "much more striking".[36] Anime News Network's Casey Brienza also praised his design, saying that he looks like a "visual kei rock star" and calling him "a nice change of pace" from other shōnen protagonists.[37] Allen's abilities were described as "rather inspired" by Michael Aronson in Manga Life magazine.[38] Brian Henson of Mania Beyond Entertainment wrote that Allen's mysterious, cursed eye might appeal to series readers.[39] Carlo Santos of Anime News Network wrote that Allen did not use "cleverness" to defeat Akuma, letting his arm "overpower the enemy".[40] Allen was described as a "solid" hero by A.E. Sparrow of IGN.[41] Writing that the character's use of the anti-Akuma weapon might seem clichéd, Todd Douglass Jr. of DVD Talk found its anime depiction entertaining.[42] Like Casey Brienza, Kevin Leathers of the UK Anime Network noted that Allen differed from the genre's typical main characters. Leathers saw little character development: "[He] is focused on his job, but will always make time for his friends, which while different, isn't interesting over a long period of time."[43] Tom Tonhat of Escapist magazine called Allen a "good lead character".[44] Active Anime's Sandra Scholes found him mysterious, citing his arrival at the Black Order and the anti-Akuma weapon.[45]

Critics have noted Allen's interactions with other characters during the series, and IGN's Richard Osborn enjoyed the comic relief of his clashes with Kanda against the series' dark plot.[46] John Rose of the Fandom Post considered the team of Allen and fellow Exorcist Yu Kanda the greatest strength of the manga's second volume.[47] In a later review, Rose enjoyed the plotline in which Allen was unable to distinguish innocents from Akumas.[48] Allen's rematch with enemy Noah Tyki Mikk was praised by Casey Brienza of Anime News Network. Brienza also liked his new abilities, the Innocence Crown Clown and Allen's sword, comparing it to a sword in Final Fantasy VII wielded by protagonist Cloud Strife.[49] Reviewing the same fight, Otaku USA's Joseph Luster praised Allen's development during the series and enjoyed his battle with Tyki.[50] Leroy Douresseaux of Comic Book Bin liked Allen's situation in volume 21, and wanted to see more of the same instead of the focus on Kanda's fight against the Akuma of Alma Karma.[51] During Allen's imprisonment for saving Alma, Anne Lauenroth of Anime News Network found the growing camaraderie between Allen and Tyki interesting; it led to Allen's decision to leave the Order after putting his comrades in danger, and his goodbye to Lenalee was mournful.[52]

Reviewers were also impressed with Allen's becoming an enemy of the Order, the 14th Noah; Grant Goodman of Pop Culture Shock found the discussion as intense as a battle.[53] Chris Beveridge of the Fandom Post enjoyed the appearance of the 14th Noah in Allen's mind, praising the character's internal conflict.[54] In the next volume, Chris Kirby of the same website was impressed by Allen's possession by Nea.[55] Alex Osborn of IGN was shocked by Allen's first possession by the 14th Noah, seeing in previous episodes a "beam of light in an otherwise dark series" and finding the possession "disturbing".[56] According to Osborn, Allen was becoming "an increasingly more complex and interesting character".[56] Anne Lauenroth wrote that the struggle between Allen and the 14th Noah has left the character in need of a friend; Cross Marian's words and care gave Allen a "path".[57] In the book Representing Multiculturalism in Comics and Graphic Novels, Jacob Birken wrote that Allen's use of his powers illustrates a series theme of identity. Although Allen seems to become more human through his Innocence, the revelation that he is the 14th Noah mutes that humanity.[58]

Allen's voice actors have also been reviewed. Animation Insider's Kimberly Morales wrote that English-language voice actor Todd Haberkorn does a "decent job", matching the original work by Japanese actress Sanae Kobayashi.[4] Michael Marr of Capsule Computers also enjoyed Haberkorn's work, echoing the belief that it was as appealing as Kobayashi's.[59] Casey Brienza criticized Haberkorn for not giving Allen a British accent, since the series begins in Europe.[37] When Kobayashi was replaced by Ayumu Murase in the second D.Gray-man anime (D.Gray-man Hallow), Anne Lauenroth of Anime News Network enjoyed Murase's work.[60] In a later review, Lauenroth praised Murase's work in voicing two characters: Allen and the 14th Noah.[61] Thanasis Karavasilis from Manga Tokyo stated that while many fans of the series were bothered by Murase replacing Kobayashi, he did not mind the change in Allen's voice.[62]
