Father Gabriele (Russell Crowe) works for Pope’s as his personal exorcist. He is considered as a trustworthy and dedicated exorcist.

Pope’s instructions to Father

The Pope gives instructions to Gabriele how to handle the situation as that demon had been troublesome for the church in the past too.

When Gabriele started doing an exorcism on the boy, he was shocked to know that the demon knew everything about Gabriele’s past, therefore, it is impossible to defeat the demon. The only way out was to know the name of the demon to weaken him from the boy’s body.
