The truth about Akaza has finally been revealed
Akaza was introduced by First time in the Infinity Train arcin which he held an epic combat against the Pillar of Flame, Kyojuro Rengoku, ending the life of the latter, because in this confrontation the magnitude of the power that this Demon holds was observed, becoming from that moment on one of the characters that cause the fans the most ambivalence.

Also, he feels a deep respect for strong opponentsremembering the name of each one of them.
However, despite being a Devil, Akaza has shown to retain remnants of his humanity, since he still retains some values that differentiate him from his companions, since he did not kill women and children, abiding by this moral code. In addition, during the fight that he had with Rengoku, he always fought fairly, respecting his opponent at all times, even knowing that he would win.
On the other hand, Akaza, does not seem to be a despicable villain like the other Upper Moons, since this one still has some traces of humanity within it. It should be noted that this demon during his human life had a very sad childhood, since he had grown up in an extremely poor neighborhood and had a sick father, whom he faithfully cared for.

However, after receiving a severe beating for stealing, he was informed about the suicide of his beloved father who left him a letter stating that he wanted him to have a full life and that he did not want the medicine that he had obtained through robberies.

Some time later he meets Keizo, the owner of a local Said who takes him as a disciple, over the years, Hakuji has become become a very skilled fighterdrawing the attention of Koyuki, Keizo’s daughter, with whom he fell in love.
When life began to smile for Hakuji, tragedy struck, as a rival dojo poisoned the drinking water in the Keizo compound, and as a consequence of this act, Keizo and Koyuki died from drinking this water.because Hakuji happened to be outside.
Upon returning to town, he finds out the news and goes in search of revenge to the rival dojo, fighting with all the members of thisFinishing them off completely, Muzan took advantage of this moment to ask this destroyed young man to become a Demon, taking advantage of his vulnerability.
Akaza wasn’t completely evil and this moment proves it
The second confrontation that Akaza had with the demon slayers provided the opportunity to know a little more about this Demonsince, in this fight, Akaza has once again been impressed by Giyu’s skills, making the same request as Rengoku, that he become a Demon to spend eternity fighting.
During this fight, Giyu and Tanjiro have been seriously injured. for this demon. Due to his injuries, Kamado ended up fainting so Tomioka was protecting him at all times, even if it meant losing his life.
Observing this attitude of Giyu, Akaza has faint memories of his life as a human and his relationship with Keizo, his teacher. However, he continued to fight, when Akaza was preparing to launch a final attack against Giyu, it is stopped by the spirit of Koyuki who is crying and begging him to stop.
In view of this, Akaza begins to remember more clearly his life as a human, so he reconsiders and analyzes his actions, regretting having dishonored the teachings of his teacher. Akaza, with a smile on his face, uses his great strength to sacrifice himself to prevent further damage.
This action of Akaza confirms that not completely evilbecause deep down he still kept his humanity and the memories he lived with his loved ones, showing that he was totally different from the villain stereotype that has been presented in some works.
