I'll do Raidou's first. Feel free to correct anything wrong.

Kuzunoha Raidou
Occupation: Devil Summoner (apprentice detective)
Age: 17
The protagonist of this game, a boy who inherited the title 'Kuzunoha Raidou the 14th', he has the task of protecting the Imperial Capital.
Under the cloak that envelopes his body, he carries his(trusty) sword and gun, and a tube to collect demons.
He works in Narumi Detective Agency as an apprentice, and collects info from various places all over the Imperial Capital. Whever a case is linked with demons, he takes care of it with his role of Devil Summoner.
He is a student in 'Yudzukinokimi Koutou Shihan Gakkou'(Shihan Gakkou means Normal School and it's a school where students are trained to be teaching staff) located in the Imperial Capital. His name 'Raidou', originated from one of the '4 Devil Summoners' who helped form the Kuzunoha clan which existed from long ago with the original forefinders. The Kuzunoha clan only gives the names of one of the 4 Devil Summoners to the member with the most ability in that generation(so Raidou isn't his real name).

Info not in his profile:
There is a black cat always following him about.
In the special corner on the official site, Kazuma said that Raidou never takes his hat off even in the bath, and he still wears his cloak in the summer(to keep his weapons concealed). ^^;

*hearts* Thanks so much, Kuzu! You're so damn awesome for translating the information! ;o; As for the high school's name, I can try and ask Yoko for help on that tomorrow.

Wow, he has time to go to school and collect demons? Haha, Raidou's on a roll~

EDIT: Nevermind. T_T; I keep forgetting...'I need a printer'...

Hehe, teito is the pronunciation for Imperial Capital... anyways, I surfed around today and found the name. Yudzukinokimi... I thought it would be 'yumitsuki' or 'kyugetsu' but I looked around and it was Yudzuki. According to some history text, Yudzukinokimi is the supposed ancestor of Hatashi and descendant of Chin Tse Huang.

Narumi
Occupation: Chief of Narumi Detective Agency
Age: Early 30s
He runs the Narumi Detective Agency which specialises in cases relating to the occult. It's located in a building called Ginroukaku in the Imperial Capital. He is Raidou's boss.
His motto is to be cheerful and aloof, and live carefreely.
Hence, he normally shows conduct such as letting Raidou do most of the work, and being particular to accepting jobs depending on how much the offer is.
However, he cannot overlook people in difficulty, and opposes people who take advantage of weak people for their own benefit with passion.
Furthermore, he has a surprising personal history, and has connections within the military and government.

Asakura Tae (Kichou)
Occupation: Reporter for the Teito Shinbou(Imperial Capital Newspaper)
Age: Early 20s
A female reporter working for the Teito Shinbou.
In the Taisho Era where females are treated with discrimination, she opposes this and with her competitive personality, she aims for the elevation of female status.
For luck(not too sure about this), she uses the handle Kichou because she looks up to Hirazuka Raichou(a more practical use is for circumstances where it'd be beneficial for others to not know her gender clearly).
Unlike most of the news reporters in the Taisho Era who employ youngsters to collect news and information for them, she goes to the actual scene herself to collect data, forming the modernistic method of producing her articles.
However, to avoid misunderstandings with prejudiced people, she personally wishes others not to call her 'Kichou-san' but 'Tae-chan', because it's more friendly. She is a charming and courteous person.
Other than being a reporter, she is also aiming to be an author of non-fictional folklore. For that purpose she pursues connections with bizzare events happening in towns or those relating to folklore. In the process, she came to frequent Narumi Detective Agency.

Cool! Thanks so much again for the translation! :) The stuff about Yudzukinokimi seems pretty interesting.

Hmm, I can tell I really like Narumi a lot just by reading his profile.^^

Yes, I want to know more about them as well. :o And more about the history of the Kuzunoha clan, seeing as they've been around for so long... I also want to know, does Raidou take over Narumi Detective Agency in the end? XD; Since there's a Kuzunoha Detective Agency in previous games. :P I also want to know about that cat that's always following Raidou about in the preview... is it his pet? I would email and ask that question for them to answer in the special corner if my Japanese program was working D8

You're all welcome, XD Actually I'd love to do the special corners too when I have the time... the next update is on the 9th of September, I hope they give us more characters!!

Ah, do they let you send in questions for the special corner section? D: I don't have a Japanese program on this computer...my old one does. *wants to ask a few as well* And well, my sister is here so she can help me with the Japanese. =P

Has anyone played the previous Devil Summoner games? If so, maybe you guys can give us background information on them?

I played the first Devil Summoner but they don't really talk about the Kuzunoha Clan. Especially because we don't "really" play a Kuzunoha.
But there is an ancient civilisation book wrote by the dr. Azuma which is often quoted in the game and it's said something like that :
The incident/catastrophe/destruction writed in the hystory of the city of Hirasaki is a lie initiated by the Yamato dynasty long time ago, during the war against Yamato & others country.
The truth was that :
During the war in Hirasaki's field, there was a little and unknown country commanded by the Hata family (? not sure, it is probably the ancestors of the Kuzunoha ?? 秦氏 in kanji) where magic existed. But not only magic, they also have the possibility to use demoniac forces, and demoniac souls. Every generation of the Hata Family could did this.
Then the princess of the Yamato dynasty was said to be haunted by a demon's soul, so she was murdered by her family.
But the princess become an haunting ghost and start to produce fear in the Hirasaki city. Then she destroyed the entire city.
In the end of Devil Summoner 1 we fight the princess (she is called Inaruna) and the new destruction of the city was prevented.

I probably mistranslate some things and don't remember exactly everything, but it's pratically all the stuff that is said about the past in Devil Summoner 1.

Rotkappchen - Wow, thanks so much for the information! :D Hmm, I read somewhere that Rei's boyfriend is the one that takes the body of Kuzunoha Kyouji. Is this true? Also, is there in any about the Kuzunoha's in Soul Hackers? Or is that game just like a side story?

Philemon - Was is Weekly or PS2? Because I'm going to go out to the store today to get the magazines(maybe just one of them) and if there's already scans of one on the net...well, I don't want to get the same one. D:

Ok it's an heavy spoiler from the begining of Devil Summoner 1 :
Rei is the partner of Kuzunoha Kyouji, the devil summoner. In the begining of the game you play as a normal guy who meet his girlfriend called Kumiko, but they both get attack by demons. So kyouji help them, then he is murder by Sid Davis. Then Sid Davis capture you and kill you too.
Then you go in Hell and meet Charon who reincarnates your soul in the Kyouji's body, for obscure reasons.
So you take his job as detective and must work as a devil summoner and find a way to recover your real body (and push back Kyouji's soul in his body).

So Rei isn't the girlfriend of neither Kyouji nor the guy of the beginning of the game (who got Kumiko (http://shindds.free.fr/artworks/devil_summoner/18.jpg) for girlfriend).
