Anyone remember that topic about how many Exorcists are alive?
There is an actual answer, and it's twelve.
Chapter 89: Tree-General says: "Right now, the only living exorcists are Hevlaska, Sokaro, Cloud, Marian, and the 9 that are here, that's all..."
Thirteen. Minus one for the now-presumed-dead Kanda, that's twelve.
Originally, there were thirteen Noah presumed as well, although Boric is now dead.
Does that mean that there's going to be one Noah for every exorcist? That includes the betrayer, so presumably he's been replaced. (Or - see the theory thread - that one of the exorcists is supposed to be the new Noah).
Yes, I know it seems dumb to start a new thread just to say "twelve", but...
