—Cain to Valen[src]
Cain is a Demon created by Oswald Leingold in order to help him finish his plan to take over the world. He is created with the element Null but his basic element is fire, which is because he is born in the month of Ignis. As a newborn, Cain is insanely strong but mentally weak. He clings to others greatly and doesn't really have the will to fight unless Oswald orders him to. Later, Cain found a motherly figure in Cheryl and secretly wishes he can have Oswald and Cheryl as parents. After the relam crumbles in ROT, Cain is sealed in the realm and his growth stopped, but later on the Leingolds return to the realm to hide Valencia Athanae Leingold. Their null powers resonance, ths releasing Cain from the seal. They then become friends, but not for long. Valen is taken back to the city and Cain is left to watch the realm until Thanos wakes up.
AppearanceEditCain wears a sleeveless shirt in ROT, showing his demonic tatto. He is also chained in the realm and bleeds constantly. In ROA, Cain wears a red jacket that covers half part of his upper body, hiding his demonic hand from others. It is noted that Cain was the shortest character in ROT and becomes one of the tallest in ROtA. He is always related to the color "red" because his base element as a null is fire. As a hellraiser, he grows wings and fangs. Also, his demonic arm becomes even bigger and more muscular.
In ROT, Cain has a very weak personality. He just do what other people asks him to do and easily influenced. Cain is a lonely kid who only wants love and care from others. In Ian's path in ROT, Cain is shown to be very loyal to Oswald and is willing to kill Ian in order to show his master what he is capable of. In the true ending, Cain calls Oswald "father" and Cheryl "mother", showing them that he loves them as parents.In Before Requiem, Cain shows great fondness in Valen. They become friends rather quickly and even promised to get married. Cain grows a backbone because he wants to protect Valen and that is the starting point of his development and their relationship. When Valen is taken away, he was sad, but then accepted that she must go and promises that someday he would take care of her.
In his days in the realm, Cain begins to question his real purpose of living and come to no conclusion. It gets worse when Cain realize that he will soon becomes a Hellraiser, the insane being of a demon's growth stage. That means he won't be able to live long because his friends must kill him when it happens. The fact alone makes him feel like a cold and distant person in ROtA, who doesn't even have a will to live. But later when Valen returns to his life, Cain slowly realized the purpose of him living. He must protect those he loves and live to his fullest, even though his life won't last long.
