■ About the pillars
In the manga Demon Slayer, the Demon Slaying Corps is an organization that protects humans from man-eating demons. The top-ranked swordsmen in the crops consist of people with potent Breath Style and each of them is given the title pillar (柱) of their distinct Breath Style. Since the kanji for pillar is made of nine strokes, the Pillars are comprised of nine people. Their strength far outranks those of normal swordsmen and they are literally the pillars that support the Demon Slaying Corps.
