The Union Elders


    1st Elder 

1st Elder

The 1st Elder and the de facto main antagonist of the series, alongside Maduke and Dr. Crombel.

He first appears in chapter 485, revealing that up till now, he has been sending in his bodyguard as a proxy during the previous meetings, all for the sake of fooling the other Elders. The only exception to this precaution is the 3rd Elder. His deep hatred for the Werewolves leads the 1st Elder, and those loyal to him, to attack the weakened Werewolf Territory after Maduke and many of his loyalists have been disposed of.

  • Big Bad: One the main contenders, also technically this for the Union as a whole, due to being their highest ranking member.
  • Blondes Are Evil: Has blond hair with a black streak to the top of his head and is the highest ranking member of the Union.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He expresses disgust at what Maduke and his loyal werewolves did to humans in the past.
  • Facial Markings: He has some sort of black marking on the right side of his forehead.
  • Fantastic Racism: The 1st Elder holds a deep hatred for Werewolves knowing that the latter has been looking down on the humans as the lesser race that they can take advantage of. As a result, the Elder's first order-of-business is to destroy what's left of the Werewolves after they've been left in a weakened state following the war between the Rai and Maduke factions.
  • Kill Sat: He can use the satellite Armageddon to nuke wherever he wants.
  • The Leader: He's this for the entire Company. Particularly, the human faction.
  • Mr. Fanservice: One of the most attractive Union Elders. The fandom's initial reaction to his official introduction can be summed up as Stupid Sexy Flanders.
  • Mysterious Past: Even though he is one of the key players in the plot, basically nothing is known about him, at all.
  • Stealth Hi/Bye: He is introduced to the readers by doing this on Crombel.

    2nd Elder: Maduke 


The 2nd Elder, and the current leader of the Werewolves who powered up those loyal to him through sacrificial experiments done on his own people.

Maduke has always been at odds with the old Werewolf leader, Muzaka, and orders for the latter's assassination in the current era after finding out that he survived his duel against Rai. A war against Maduke's Werewolves then breaks out after Rai and company invade Werewolf territory in order to rescue M-21.

  • All Your Powers Combined: Maduke's experiments that were done on his loyal Werewolves turn out to be Blood Stones, which he uses to absorb the strength of his subordinate Werewolves in order to gain another power-up during his fight against Muzaka. The red mist that was released from the destruction of one of his Blood Stone towers then started to provide Maduke the power it stole from Rai and his companions.
  • Arch-Enemy: Built up as such for Muzaka as the former and current Werewolf Lords.
  • Arc Villain: Serves as the primary villain for the Rai faction's war against Maduke and his loyal Werewolves.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Werewolves only accept the strongest as their leader and he has been able to keep his position firmly ever since he became their leader.
  • Bad Boss: Revealed to be this later on by sacrificing his loyal Werewolves in order to strengthen his own Super Mode.
  • Berserk Button: Maduke treats the position of Werewolf Lord very seriously, which is why he absolutely hates the fact that Muzaka as the current leader does the exact opposite.
  • The Chessmaster:
    • Puts together a master plan to take over as the new Werewolf leader from Muzaka.
    • He also puts together a plan using Blood Stones to absorb the power of his loyal Werewolves in order to gain a Super Mode.
  • Evil Gloating: He gloats at Muzaka how his entire plan went down that led to the old Werewolf Lord getting ousted, and labeled as a traitor to the clan.
  • Goal in Life: His lifetime goal has always been to become the new Werewolf Lord, which Maduke manages to do so after his plan succeeds in ousting out Muzaka.
  • Healing Factor: Like other Werewolves, Maduke has quite a high healing factor. Especially when he starts going Super Mode, and absorbing the power of the other Werewolves through the use of the Blood Stones.
  • It's All About Me: Sees absolutely nothing wrong with draining the lives out of his entire species for his own benefit, because he doesn't even see a need for anyone else in his species to exist.
  • The Leader: He becomes the new Werewolf leader after his plan succeeds in ousting out Muzaka.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Hair covers his left eye.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: After his remaining loyal Werewolves are left confused as to why they're being sacrificed, Maduke calls them out that they should have expected something like this given that they were also going along with sacrificing the Werewolves weaker than them in order to further strengthen themselves.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: Part of his official outfit.
  • Super Mode: His fight against Rai and company had him go through several.
    • Activates his Werewolf abilities during a fight with Muzaka.
    • During said Muzaka fight, he pushes his abilities even further by turning into an actual Werewolf.
    • He then gains a more powerful Werewolf form after absorbing power using the Blood Stones that were implanted in his loyal Werewolves.
    • Continuing the trend, Maduke had a back-up plan in place where the destruction of one of his Blood Stone towers absorbing the Werewolves power released some sort of red mist that started absorbing the power of Rai and his companions, giving Maduke yet another form. It took Muzaka transferring some of his power into Rai to allow for the latter to perform an attack powerful enough to finally kill Maduke.
  • The Starscream: Even back when he was still serving under Muzaka, he acted to undermine Muzaka and set Muzaka up to die in a duel against Rai. Furthermore, when Muzaka is revealed to be alive after centuries, his first reaction is to send people to assassinate Muzaka.

    3rd Elder 

3rd Elder

The 3rd Elder. Not much is known of him as of yet except that he is one of the strongest modified humans to exist in the Union.

  • Ambiguously Brown: Has a notably darker skin color than most of his fellow Elders.
  • Blinding Bangs: His hairstyle. Although in battle, we get to see his Occult Blue Eyes.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Well, his hair is white, but still fits.
  • Deadly Gaze: Is somehow able to attack by merely staring.
  • Eye Beams: The exact mechanics aren't very clear, but he seemingly can do this by first absorbing the aura energy most of the stronger characters in the series are seen using into his eyes until the cells and irises are fully charged up. Once released, even Nobles have problems when dealing with this attack, as even they can have a hard time with them simply due to the ridiculous speed of his attacks.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Not exactly a boy, but he is still a jaw-dropper nonetheless.
  • Long-Range Fighter: What was shown of his combat abilities so far suggests that he is this, as during his battle against Karias it was Lunark who carried out melee attacks, while he was more or less a Friendly Sniper, giving her support from a distance.
  • Secret Keeper: He was the only Elder who knew of the 1st Elder's true identity.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Has long white hair...and is a major member of the Union.

    4th Elder: Roctis Kravei 

Roctis Kravei

The 4th Elder, and one of the traitor Nobles who refused to enter eternal sleep. Alongside his daughter, Ignis, and the 9th Elder, Roctis delved into human modification without the rest of the Union's consent, and became one of the few Nobles to combine human knowledge with the power of the Noble.

  • Evil Costume Switch: Wore the official black outfit back in Lukedonia. Wears Union white in the current day.
  • Evil Virtues: Deconstructed. As seen by the Papa Wolf entry below, while he did love his daughter, he ultimately enabled her to cross every possible line.
  • In Your Nature to Destroy Yourselves: This is what he thinks of humanity, and thus one of the reasons for his defection.
  • Oh, Crap!: This is his reaction when he senses Rai's presence in his daughter's lab.
  • Papa Wolf: Even though his daughter has committed crimes, he'll still protect her no matter what.
  • Summon Magic: He can summon a blood shark.
  • Whip It Good: His weapon.

    5th Elder: Lunark 


The 5th Elder, and the lone female amongst the group. Lunark has a love for battle as shown in her duels against Frankenstein, and is shown to be loyal to the current Werewolf lord, Maduke. However, with the exception of Kentas, she is one of the remaining Werewolves who hasn't accepted the new power that was created from experiments done upon their own people, which puts her at odds with the other Werewolves who are loyal to Maduke.

  • Heel–Face Turn: After realizing how much that Maduke, and those loyal to him, have lost their way when it comes to honoring the old Werewolf traditions, she sides with Kentas, and turns against Maduke and company to the point of even protecting M-21.
  • In the Hood: Hidden during her introduction.
  • Godiva Hair: When she unleashes her werewolf side.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow: When she unleashes her werewolf side.
  • Super Mode: Activates her Werewolf abilities throughout multiple battles, such as her fights with Frankenstein and Maduke's Werewolves.
  • Tsundere: Ep. 457 pretty much confirms this. She tells Franky to go off and die, a classic "I wasn't trying to help you guys", and freaks out when M-21 reveals that she wanted Frankenstein to know that she did everything she could to help them. In 458, she is blushing when the battle begins between Frankenstein and the werewolves because Frankenstein stated in 457 that "just this once, he would fight for her".
  • Villainous Crush: For Frankenstein. In a rather...creepy way
  • Werewolf Theme Naming: Lunark.
  • Worthy Opponent: She views Frankenstein this way.


    6th Elder: Urokai Agvain 

Urokai Agvain

The 6th Elder, and one of the traitor Nobles who refused to enter eternal sleep. Urokai was often at odds with Frankenstein in the past, which ended up with the loss of his eye. In the present, he joins in at the last second of a Raizel faction's battle against the 5th, 7th and 8th Elders.

  • Alas, Poor Villain: His last few moments of screen time show that he truly admired and wanted to help Rai.
  • Blade on a Stick: His weapon, Dragus, resembling guan dao.
  • Evil Costume Switch: Wore the official black outfit back in Lukedonia. Wears Union white in the current day.
  • Evil Redhead: A red-headed Noble that joined an evil organization
  • Eyepatch of Power: Frankenstein took out his eye a long time ago.
  • Eye Scream: Courtesy of Frankenstein. He could have healed it, but he decides to keep it as a grim reminder.
  • Fiery Redhead: Even his closest peers remark he's so loud.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: See The Resenter
  • In the Hood: Hidden during his introduction.
  • The Resenter: Urokai has always resented Rai's and the previous lord's attention to Frankenstein.
  • Satan: As the wiki points out, many aspects of his character brings the fall of Lucifer to mind.
    Urokai accused Raizel of displaying indifference toward those who followed him (including Urokai); yet he took Frankenstein, a puny mortal, under his wings over other nobles (like Lucifer was dissatisfied with God because the God favored humans, over Angels)
  • Summon Magic: He can summon blood snakes.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: Urokai never got over that incident when Frankenstein took out his eye.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Urokai was apparently this before betraying Rai and joining the Union.

    8th Elder 

8th Elder

The 8th Elder, a modified human that has been upgraded to the point where he is basically a cyborg. The success of this creation led to the 9th Elder, and Ignes, to developing the Anti Leader Experiments.

  • Hollywood Cyborg: He's been modified so much to the point that he basically isn't human anymore.
  • Psycho Prototype: The first anti-clan-leader weapon developed by Ignes and 9th Elder. He's also very unhinged.

  • Animal Motifs: Spiders. Interestingly, he never got to fully transform himself.
  • The Dragon: Seems to be one for 4th, as well as Ignes.
  • Mad Scientist: His profession that Crombel views as his rival. Turns out several of his inventions are actually a joint project with Ignes.
  • Non-Action Guy: He died more easily than any of the other Elders, showing almost no combat ability whatsoever.
