Liones Holy Knights

The initial antagonists of the series. They usurped King Baltra Liones and subjugated the rest of the kingdom in order to prepare for the Holy War. After the truth of the Seven Deadly Sins is finally brought to their attention, they all come to regret their past actions and work to live up to their actual namesakes.


    Tropes pertaining to the Holy Knights in general 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/holy_lions_knights_5404.jpg

  • Blood Knight: Within the order, many of the knights have a passion for battle sometimes at the expense of others. The degree of which they display such tendencies differ with each knight.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Thanks to Ban removing the demonic plants that were supplying their powers, the Holy Knights who became Demon Reactors via Demon Blood lost their powers and were brought back to normal. Only Guila however retained her powers.
  • Cool Helmet: Possessors of most of the cool helmets within the series.
  • The Dreaded: They are supposed to be heroes but are terrifying beings with each one possessing enough power to match a country's army.
  • Easily Forgiven: Subverted. After the whole ordeal with them has been dealt with, it's initially assumed that King Baltra lets them off with a light punishment for all that they've done, something that even shocks the knights themselves. In response, Baltra explains that their sins aren't forgiven and that no matter how much they're punished, it won't take away the pain and wounds they've caused to the kingdom's people. He proposes instead that they dedicate themselves to restoring the damage they've caused and making sure something like they did won't ever happen again.
    • Despite this however, it's later revealed that some of the Holy Knights who did especially heinous crimes were exiled for their actions.
  • Evil Hero: While there are a few in the Holy Knights who are heroic and there are those that see the group as a whole as such, many of its members are evil. This however changes for the most part over the course of the story.
  • Famed In-Story: The Holy Knights are considered knights among knights who protect Britannia.
  • Government Conspiracy: Most people think that there is some ulterior motive going on with the Holy Knights with all their doings. They do, in order to prepare for an upcoming Holy War.
    • There is also a conspiracy within the Holy Knights themselves. The ranks of the new generation are being filled with individuals who have been empowered by demon blood. Not everyone in the Holy Knights is aware of this. Many of the higher-ups also outright lie to their subordinates and their allies about certain events.
    • The biggest conspiracy they have is covering the fact that they've overthrown the rightful king of Liones. They kept this fact from anyone who isn't of their order. They've even gone as far as silence foreign messengers to keep the truth from leaking. In fact, not even visiting kings are safe from them.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Over the course of the story, a good number of Holy Knights slowly switch from fighting the Sins to helping them. For most, this was due to discovering the truth behind what was really happening within their ranks and order. By the time the Sins' name are cleared, practically the entire order has switched sides having returned back to serving King Baltra. Even Hendrickson himself, the Big Bad of the first part of the series, switches sides much later after his senses return back to him.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: A key trait amongst the Demon Reactors that Hendrickson created for his new generation of Holy Knights is that they commonly share inferiority complexes. Due to being originally apprentices who didn't make the cut, they have great feelings of rage towards legitimate Holy Knights and towards their own powerlessness. Such negative emotions reacted to the Demon Blood they drank and gave birth to their powers.
  • Knight Templar: Apart from being literal knights, the Holy Knights are willing to overthrow their king, subjugate and kill innocent civilians, and other atrocities in order to prepare for a Holy War that was prophesied to come. The new generation under Hendrickson is also willing to use a Demon to enhance their powers.
  • Light Is Not Good: The Holy Knights are the equivalent of paladins, but many of them are incredibly cruel.
  • Magical Accessory: A number of the knights carry around magical orbs slotted onto their armor and attire. These orbs can be taken out and used to cast healing spells that can patch up serious injuries. They're basically used for emergencies.
  • Magic Knight: A significant number of the Holy Knights are capable of great physical strength and magic.
  • Mook Promotion: Many of the New Generation under Hendrickson were originally regular knight apprentices. Those that survived drinking the Demon Blood he offered and gained powers were immediately promoted to Holy Knight status.
  • One-Man Army: Each individual Holy Knight is considered the equal of a thousand men. When the northern barbarians invade with an army of three thousand men, two knights working together are able to wipe the army out with minimal effort. The new generation of Holy Knights is even stronger if only because they use demon blood to boost their powers.
  • The Order: The Holy Knights of Liones are an order of knights whose original purpose was solely to protect the kingdom not subjugate it.
  • The Paladin: The Holy Knights by their name and supposed duties to protect the people are supposed to be this. However due to their actions, they are paladins in name only.
  • Psycho Serum: The apprentices who drank the Demon Blood that Hendrickson offered either became Demon Reactors or exploded. However, all those who survived had the unfortunate luck of being turned into Demons via an incantation invoked by Hendrickson.
  • Took a Level in Badass: What happened to several Holy Knight apprentices and general subordinates who make up the new generation due to drinking demon blood. This is noticed in-universe by the knights of the older generation.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: The Holy Knights might be forcing the people to fight in a war, but they are doing this to protect them....some of them, anyways. The Knights seem split into two camps: Dreyfus's faction seem to be this, but Hendrickson's is far more sinister.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Outside of Liones, nobody knows how cruel and horrible the Holy Knights truly are.

Great Holy Knights

    Zaratras 

Zaratras

Voiced by: Rikiya Koyama (Japanese), Lex Lang (English), Arturo Mercado Jr. (Latin American)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seven_deadly_sins_zaratras.png

The previous Great Holy Knight of Liones who was murdered ten years before the start of the series for which the Seven Deadly Sins were framed for it. He is stated to be have been the strongest Holy Knight when was still alive. He is Gilthunder's father and Dreyfus' brother as well as Griamore's uncle.

Much like his son, Zaratras wields the power of thunder and lightning to great effect, combining blazingly-fast sword attacks with devastating blasts of magic.


  • Always Someone Better: To Dreyfus. It didn't end well.
  • Back from the Dead: Happens to him via Merascylla's magic. Like the other dead she revived, he's resurrected by the grudges his soul bears, in particular concerning his death. His grudge, however, is less directed to Dreyfus and Hendrickson the ones responsible for his murder, and more towards himself for dying and allowing things like those two falling into darkness transpire. As such, he retained his self and went incognito as the masked knight Silver who had participated in the Vaizel Fighting Festival hosted by the Ten Commandments. He later meets up with Elizabeth to reveal himself and help her revive Meliodas.
  • Beware the Silly Ones:
    • He is a complete spacecase out of battle but there is a reason why he has the position as Great Holy Knight.
    • This also shows when his two successors end up poisoning him first before trying to take him down.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to his brother Dreyfus' Cain, who killed him to get the position of Great Holy Knight.
  • The Cape: Zaratras was regarded as the ideal and strongest knight in Liones before his demise.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: He's... surprisingly out there for someone who is considered to be The Paragon. So much so that Hawk's first thought after meeting him was that he was an imposter. Elizabeth says that he's always been like that.
  • Cool Uncle: His nephew Griamore really admired him.
  • The Ditz: What he acts like. Seriously the guy thinks his son might not recognize him despite looking exactly the same. He also forgot an important conversation with Meliodas about the latter's demise. What contributed to Zaratras' demise was not being skewered dozens of times but poisoning because he didn't bother checking for poison in his favorite dish.
  • Dies Wide Open: In Dreyfus's flashback his corpse has open eyes.
  • Druid: Zaratras is actually a druid, a distinction which he inherited from his mother. This however only applies to him and not his brother as they have different mothers.
  • Foreshadowing: One in regards to what happens later in the story. Through Lord Denzel's power, the Ten Commandment Fraudrin is cursed to be haunted by the spirits of all those that he's killed. However, he notes that among these spirits, he hasn't seen a certain person thus foreshadowing the fact that Zaratras has been resurrected.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Zaratras is willing to use all the life force he has left after being revived from the dead and focus it into his Purge technique so he could fully rip Fraudrin from Dreyfus. It works.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: First shown in the first chapter detailing the Edinburgh incident, Zaratras has an ability called Purge. With it, he can purge evil souls and such. He can even return those who've been turned into vampires back to normal so they can die peacefully. He's able to do this because Purge is actually a secret technique that druids like him can do.
  • Human Pincushion: Was found propped up dead this way with several spears sticking through him.
  • Posthumous Character: He was believed to be killed by the Seven Deadly Sins but the one who killed him was Dreyfus, his brother. Later on in the story, it's revealed that he was revived by Merascylla's magic.
  • Power Level: According to the second Fanbook, his level is 3060 with his individual stats being Power: 1180, Strength: 930, and Spirit: 950.
  • Shock and Awe: His magic, "Great Thunder", is almost identical to his son's "Thunderbolt", but has connotations of being used by a Thunder God rather than a Thunder Emperor.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: He was regarded as a paragon and highly respected by many both in life and after death.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: "Yawn of the Black Cat's" Fish Pies. It got him killed because he was hungry and he didn't bother checking if they were poisoned.

    Dreyfus 

Dreyfus

Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi (Japanese), Jamieson Price (credited as Taylor Henry) (English), Jorge Ornelas, Abraham Salvatti (Kid)(Latin American)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seven_deadly_sins_dreyfus.png

A Great Holy Knight and co-leader of the Holy Knights of Liones with Hendrickson. Among the two Great Holy Knights, Dreyfus is the more honorable of the two. He genuinely wants to protect the kingdom of Liones from the foretold Holy War. However, he is willing to do so even at the cost of the people he is trying to protect. He is also a very ambitious man who is willing to go to any lengths regardless who or what stands in his way. Despite this, he genuinely loves his son Griamore. He is also Zaratras' brother and Gilthunder's uncle.

In regards to the prophesied Holy War, Dreyfus regards the Sins to be the most likely candidates for whom the Holy Knights will fight against. In particular, he considers Meliodas to be the most threatening due to the latter's past.

Dreyfus' staunch determination is best showcased by his non-indicatively-titled magic, Break. As long as his mana doesn't run out and his will doesn't falter, Dreyfus will stay unharmed and use raw magic to enhance his physical attacks or fire scorching beams.


  • Achilles' Heel: Like his son, Dreyfus' abilities are will and determination based. Thus likewise if he falters psychologically, his powers are greatly diminished and he becomes more susceptible to attacks.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: On the first page of chapter 66 and the cover of Volume 10 of the manga, Dreyfus is depicted with brown hair and gray armor. The anime gives him a darker shade of brown for his hair and changes his armor to red.
  • Ambition Is Evil: Dreyfus' strong sense of ambition has lead to do some terrible things such as murdering his own brother to get the position of Great Holy Knight.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: To nobody's shock, Dreyfus is every bit as powerful as his rank implies. As one of two Great Holy Knights, he shows his stuff when he subjects Diane to a Curb-Stomp Battle, and nearly gets away with cutting down Gowther, were it not for his alarming ability to ignore fatal injuries.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With Hendrickson, as the two leaders of the Holy Knights of Liones. Although Hendrickson is more significantly sinister than Dreyfus. Dreyfus' position as a Big Bad diminishes a little when he decides to side with the Sins to stop Hendrickson' plans and fess up to his own crimes. But then it turns out that Dreyfus, or something inside him, is the true architect of this scheme and was working with Hendrickson the whole time.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to his brother Zaratras' Abel, for whom he killed to get the position of Great Holy Knight.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: For all of his Heroic Willpower, he apparently has a problem with this. A Q&A from Chapter 168 reveals that whenever he and Hendrickson went drinking together, he'd always drink too much and vomit it all back up. It's the one thing Hendrickson would change about Dreyfus, apparently.
  • Demonic Possession: It turns out that Dreyfus' been possessed by the demon Fraudrin and has been using his body from time to time. Said demon is also the true mastermind behind all the events that have occurred since the beginning, and that Hendrickson was simply one of its pawns. Dreyfus is still inside and Fraudrin grants his request to spare Hendrickson after he has no further use for him.
  • Driven by Envy: While he greatly respected Zaratras, he also envied him and wished to surpass him. It's implied that his is part of the reason he killed him and framed the Sins for the murder. However, he was actually possessed by a demon years ago, who manipulated him into committing the murder. Dreyfus himself may not be entirely aware that he was not the most responsible party for what happened, given the effect of Gowther's attack on him.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Though he is willing to do terrible things for his ambitions, he nonetheless loves his son.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He plotted to kill his brother but he considers Hendrickson's plan to revive the Demon Clan insane.
  • Evil Uncle: He has a good relationship with his nephew Gilthunder but he killed his father.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: A Q&A reveals that the reason Dreyfus grew his hair out is because Fraudrin likes it that way.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Hendrickson.
  • Heroic Ambidexterity: According the first Databook, Dreyfus is ambidextrous. With the rank of Great Holy Knight, he is incredibly strong, and comes close to killing one of the main protagonists in combat. A Q&A from Chapter 190 however reveals that he's actually left-handed, his ambidexterity comes from the fact that Fraudrin the demon possessing him is right-handed.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He was not tempted by Fraudrin's offer of power to surpass his brother and had willpower strong enough to resist possession. However, Hendrickson did not and Dreyfus sacrificed himself to protect his friend, who was instead bewitched.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Hendrickson. So much in fact that he let an evil demon possess his body in order to protect the latter.
  • Hidden Villain: Not Dreyfus per se, but rather the demon Fraudrin who has been hiding inside Dreyfus' body all along.
  • I'm Melting!: His body is completely dissolved when he is defeated by Hendrickson's acid powers. All that is left are his ashen remains and an empty suit of armor. Ultimately subverted however. Turns out Dreyfus simply made it look like he was killed so he could disappear from Liones proper.
  • Implacable Man: In accordance to his personality and powers, he just shrugs off practically every attack against him and keeps moving.
  • Irony: The first Sin he nearly kills is Diane, the Serpent Sin of Envy. Look up there under "Driven By Envy".
  • Klingon Promotion: He and Hendrickson killed Zaratras to gain the position of Great Holy Knight.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Prior to him, most of the battles the Sins had didn't exactly put them in much danger. Some of which were won thanks to the Sins' seemingly overpowering abilities. However, after Dreyfus is confronted and he severely wounds Diane, the fear that one of the main characters could potentially die suddenly becomes all too real thanks to Dreyfus' overwhelming abilities.
  • Mind Rape: He suffers this at the hands of Gowther, who induces "Nightmare Teller" to force him to live out a twisted memory until Zaratras' corpse is leering at him.
  • More Than Mind Control: It's implied that while he always resented for Zaratras somewhat for being better than him, he would not have willingly betrayed his brother. The two people he wants least as an enemy are Meliodas and Zaratras himself, both of whom he deeply respects, but in one swift betrayal he framed one and killed the other. Fraudrin seems to have had little direct control over Dreyfus until during the Sins' attack on Liones, suggesting that he merely manipulated Dreyfus' resentment to make him do something he never would have even considered on his own.
  • The Mourning After: A Q&A from Chapter 157 mentions that Dreyfus never remarried after his wife died as he only had eyes for Anna.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Gowther's "Nightmare Teller" reveals Dreyfus has been suppressing a lot of guilt and sorrow over betraying his brother.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: His main power allows him to overpower anything thrown at him, conveniently allowing him to nullify attacks. Even acid based attacks normally don't faze him.
  • Not Himself: His actions of killing his captors just to aid his son, and his supposed slip up in battle against Hendrickson when he has never made such a mistake before, clue in to others that something's up with him.
  • Papa Wolf:
    • He went ballistic when he is told his son was supposedly killed.
    • Weakened from Fraudrin being ripped from his body, the man rises up and obliterates Fraudrin when the demon speak Griamore's name.
  • Personality Powers: The general theme of his powers seem to reflect his unfettering personality. He uses blasts that blow away everything before him and techniques that refuse to succumb to the might of others.
  • Power Level: According to the second Fanbook, his level is 3000 with his individual stats being Power: 1000, Strength: 1000, and Spirit: 1000.
  • Redemption Equals Death: Initially Dreyfus calls a truce between him and the Sins in order to stop Hendrickson from resurrecting the Demon Clan. However, it turns to a complete turn when Dreyfus decides to own up to his own crimes. Unfortunately for him, he gets killed off by Hendrickson when he battles against his former friend.
    • It later turns out that Dreyfus, or at least something using his body, is actually working together with Hendrickson and faked his death.
  • Reverse Relationship Reveal: He's initially set up as the lesser of two villains with Hendrickson. However, it's later revealed that thanks to Fraudrin's possessing him, he's actually in a way the real instigator of all of the events and that Hendrickson was just another pawn.
  • Size Shifter: Dreyfus discovers that he has this power during the Holy War arc when he sees Griamore in the grip of a powerful demon. Seeing this, Dreyfus believes Fraudrin passed on his Full Size magic to him so he could protect Griamore. It's further explained elsewhere later that human bodies possessed by a goddess or a demon may inherit some magic powers from those who possessed them.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Has prominent spikes on his shoulder pauldrons. In a rather symbolic way, it's after he loses said spikes that he decides to side with the Seven Deadly Sins to stop Hendrickson.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Apart from differing eye and hair colors as shown in some colored pages,note  Dreyfus and his son Griamore's respective faces pretty much look like one another. Their strong resemblance is more apparent in regular black and white pages wherein Dreyfus' facial hair is the only thing that can tell them apart. The anime also makes the resemblance more apparent by giving Dreyfus a darker shade of brown.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: To Hendrickson when Dreyfus was told by the former that he supposedly killed the latter's son, Griamore.
  • The Unfettered: His personality is that he is willing to crush anything or anyone within his path to whatever goal he has without so much as a waver or hesitation. Gowther's "Nightmare Teller" tries to tear his resolve apart by confronting him with his own repressed guilt over the murder of his brother, and he still shrugs off the power that was intended to keep him trapped within his mind forever by sheer willpower, although that at least leaves him exhausted.
    • The reason he broke Gowther's attack is strongly hinted to actually be due to a Hidden Villain that's possessing him. While Dreyfus was shown to be completely broken by Gowther's Mind Rape, the shadow that appeared following seemed to be responsible for snapping him out of it.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: As nasty as he can be, Dreyfus is seen as a great hero by the citizenry as a whole.
  • Villainous Breakdown:
    • In chapter 70, Gowther uses "Nightmare Teller" to trap Dreyfus in a nightmare. When Dreyfus is confronted by the impaled bloody corpse of his brother, he falls to his knees sobbing and begging for forgiveness.
    • He has another one when Margaret and Gilthunder reveal the fact that he framed the Sins for his crime, blaming himself for his son's murder and asking to be killed.
  • "Well Done, Dad!" Guy: The main reason for all of Dreyfus' schemes was to become someone his son would be proud of, as opposed to his more powerful brother.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Dreyfus seems to actually believe in what they're doing.
  • Willing Channeler: Fraudrin couldn't take Dreyfus' body by force, he only was able to do it after Dreyfus allowed him to in order to protect Hendrickson.

Hendrickson

Click here to see his first One Winged Angel form (spoiler) 
Click here to see his second One Winged Angel form (spoiler) 

A Great Holy Knight who works alongside with Dreyfus over the Holy Knights of Liones. Unlike Dreyfus, Hendrickson is the less honorable. He strongly believes that their order solely exists for war and if they there is only peace, their existence is meaningless. For that, he greatly opposed King Baltra Liones' plans to completely avoid the foretold Holy War. In fact, he is actually manipulating several things behind the scenes in order for the war to be actually brought about.

Under his command is a large number of second generation Holy Knights. As a former Druid, Hendrickson knows the Purge spell to exorcise demons. He also developed Acid magic by himself, letting him dissolve opponents by simply touching them.


  • Acid Attack: His power, "Acid", can be inflicted upon an opponent via wounding them. Unless Hendrickson is quickly defeated or the power dispelled, the wound will slowly become worse and spread until the opponent's entire body has completely rotted. He can also spray the Acid around as a wide area attack, dissolving almost everything that gets caught in it.
  • An Arm and a Leg: His arm is severed by Gilthunder right before he can strike the finishing blow on Meliodas. He later reattaches it, and does it again when Meliodas repeatedly chops it off. Just before his defeat, Ban would attempt to rip his arm right off with Snatch, but only succeeded in dislocating his shoulder, which Hendrickson quickly corrected. Finally, Meliodas' Revenge Counter tears him apart, including blowing an arm off, and he's in such a sorry state by that point that he's having trouble pulling it back to him.
  • The Atoner: After the demon bits in him were expunged and he returns to being a good man, Hendrickson is now working to make himself stronger and atone for his actions, which allowed for the Ten Commandments to return to this world.
  • Badass in Charge: Not for nothing is Hendrickson a Great Holy Knight. In his base form, not only is he capable of fighting Meliodas one-to-one, but a small fraction of his power was enough for Helbram to completely curb-stomp a demonified Meliodas when earlier he was getting his ass handed to him. When he triggers his Red Demon blood form, he gets such a boost that Dreyfus, the other Great Holy Knight, along with his son Griamore, can't scratch him even when he stands there and lets them hit him. When he enters his final form, every single fighter on the field may as well not be there for all the damage he takes. Even when not powered up, he's capable of killing a Grey Demon with one hit.
  • Bad Powers, Bad People: As a villain, his Acid ability is particularly villainous.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Though his Acid ability is bad especially when used by him as a villain, he however actually originally acquired it for nobler reasons. When he was a child, he was assigned to watch over corpses so they wouldn't be possessed by evil spirits until they decayed completely into skeletons. Spurned on by this, he developed his Acid ability to significantly quicken the process. Despite his best intentions however, he was ostracized by his people for developing such a technique.
  • The Battle Didn't Count: Gilthunder goes ape on Hendrickson once he's freed of the chimera keeping him compliant. It starts with severing his arm, then just beating on him and stabbing him with a thunderbolt until Hendrickson is down. Two minutes later? Hendrickson's back on his feet like nothing happened.
  • Battle Theme Music: Hendrickson is a danger-filled theme that plays when he enters his Red Demon form and the fight begins, and then again when he enters Gray Demon form and starts killing people left and right. It starts off full of "Psycho" Strings and then starts to incorporate Ominous Latin Chanting. Nice work, Sawano Hiroyuki.
  • Beard of Evil: Small pointed one on his chin. Loses it when he assumes his first One-Winged Angel form but regains it in his second.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With Dreyfus, although Hendrickson is far more sinister. He becomes the sole Big Bad when Dreyfus decides to side with the Sins to stop Hendrickson' plans. However it then turns out to not be the case when it's revealed that something sinister is controlling Dreyfus from behind the scenes.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: Hendrickson has blue, black, red, and yellow all going for him before he's out of the picture and every single one of them manages to be something terrifying. The black happens when he enters his Red Demon form and starts doing seriously evil and cruel stuff.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Implied. It's noted that Hendrickson is acting very strangely considering the person he was. When he uses both red and gray demon blood, his speech becomes even more disassociated with his identity as Hendrickson with Meliodas claiming it isn't him anymore. When he unseals the Ten Commandments with Fraudrin's assistance the trap on the seal purges his body of all demonic energy, leaving him absolutely horrified and apparently confused at all these demons, despite supposedly having wanted to unseal them himself. He tries to rush back to Liones to warn everyone. When he meets with Gilthunder, Griamore and Howzer he tells them how Dreyfus came to be possessed and how he himself was mind controlled years ago after investigating Danafor.
  • Casting a Shadow / Power of the Void: The powers he essentially gains after injecting himself with Gray Demon's blood. They include in particular a technique called "Dark Snow" which consists of slowly moving snow-like dark particles which can One-Hit Kill anyone it touches.
  • Charm Point: Fanbooks list his as the little beard on his chin!
  • The Chessmaster: For his beliefs, he has been manipulating alot of events in preparation for what he believes the Holy War would be with.
  • Clothing Damage: Gilthunder's attack makes sure he stays shirtless for the next forty or so chapters including battles with him in two different One-Winged Angel forms. Doesn't count in the [[Druid training hall though]], as they are required to remove their shirts for that.
  • Colonel Kilgore: He genuinely believes that he and the rest of the Holy Knights exist solely for the purpose for war. He believes this so much that he does everything in his power to prepare for the Holy War even going as far as revive the Demon Clan so that the knights have an actual opponent.
  • Combat Tentacles: When beaten down in his first One-Winged Angel form, and his body failing to fight at full form because of it, he decides to just create dark tendrils to do the work for him. These look almost like they're made from his blood, and he creates about a dozen at a time, attacking all the Sins at once with them.
  • Consummate Liar: Hendrickson constantly lies to both enemy and ally alike. For example, Hendrickson admitting to Dreyfus' face that he had his son Griamore killed while threatening Dreyfus in the same breath. Hendrickson didn't really have anything at all to do with Griamore's death and he wasn't even really dead, but Dreyfus sure believed it, and he spends more time around Hendrickson than anyone else.
  • Defiant to the End: In the dub of the anime, his Famous Last Words when being hit by Meliodas' Revenge Counter are:
    "I cannot be defeated ... BY THE LIKES OF YOU!"
  • Demonic Possession: The backstory between him and Dreyfus involves the demon Fraudrin. Fraudrin tried to possess Dreyfus, but his will was too strong, so he possessed Hendrickson instead. Dreyfus backed down and offered himself in exchange for Hendrickson's freedom. Fraudrin took the opportunity, but it seems that Fraudrin has been influencing Hendrickson from a distance while hiding inside Dreyfus for a while. This is what changed him from the Nice Guy he used to be into the manipulative cold-hearted man he is in present day.
  • Didn't Think This Through: In his first One-Winged Angel form, he's roughly stronger than the individual Sins, but doesn't put much effort into avoiding their attacks since he can just regenerate the resulting wounds. However, he still retains the damage he takes despite pulling himself together, and by the time Meliodas spells this out to him, he's already regenerated dozens of grievous injuries and his performance is suffering.
  • Druid: He is actually one of the druids, a group of forest dwelling sorcerers who revere the Goddess Clan and shun the Demon Clan.
  • Evil Vegetarian: According to the first Fanbook, his favorite food are vegetarian meals.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He becomes this after his first One-Winged Angel form, always calm and smiling while doing mischievous deeds.
  • Flash Step: Like Meliodas, Hendrickson does this sometimes in battle.
  • Foil: To Dreyfus. Dreyfus is musclebound and covered in spiky armor, while Hendrickson is leaner and wears regal robes. Dreyfus' favorite meals are meat plates, while Hendrickson's are vegetarian ones. Dreyfus has long black hair, his is short and white. Dreyfus is loud and up-front, while Hendrickson is quiet and works behind the scenes. Little things like that aside, the biggest factor is their powers: Dreyfus' magic allows him to withstand anything, while Hendrickson's power eats away at whatever it touches.
  • Friendly Rivalry: Had one with Dreyfus, that he considered has a rival and a friend.
  • Good Eyes, Evil Eyes: Hendrickson's eyes are constantly narrowed and cold, and make it easy to identify him.
  • Hannibal Lecture: When Dreyfus calls him out for plotting to revive the Demon Clan since it's something Holy Knights shouldn't do, Hendrickson calls the former a hypocrite since Dreyfus plotted to assassinate his brother Zaratras to get his position. Dreyfus shuts up immediately.
  • Hates Being Alone: According to the first Fanbook, he apparently has an alienation complex. This kinda explains his motivations over not wanting him or the rest of the Holy Knights being rendered obsolete in a completely peaceful land.
  • Healing Factor: A power of the Demon clan which he somehow gained. In Red form, he can regenerate his wounds, but the sustained damage remains and ends up hindering him. The Gray form does away with this entirely, with what little damage the Sins can do not only not fazing him at all, but being healed in a matter of seconds.
  • Healing Hands: As a Druid, he also has exclusive access to legitimate healing magic. Which has only been seen once in a failed attempt to heal Merlin only to seek for Elizabeth's assistance. Almost another time when Dreyfus requested him to heal Vivian stabbed by 'possessed' Margret but did not.
  • Hellish Pupils: He has vertical slits for pupils, even in his normal human form.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Dreyfus.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: He wants to revive the Demon Clan.
  • Hollywood Acid: His acid powers can completely dissolve an opponent within minutes if not dispelled in time.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: Since he is a Druid he can also use the "Purge" technique like fellow Druid Zaratras. He uses it to kill a Gray Demon with one hit.
  • Honorary Uncle: When he was young, Griamore called Hendrickson "uncle", a testament to how close he is to Dreyfus. Awww....
  • Horned Humanoid: Becomes this after absorbing the Gray Demon's blood.
  • Human Pincushion: In the battle he has with the Sins after entering the first One-Winged Angel form, King impales him from all sides with Chastiefol, Form Five: Increase. It's perhaps a fitting display of Laser-Guided Karma for what he did to Zaratras, yet he's barely slowed down by it—at least on the surface.
  • Hunk: He's fairly good-looking, but doesn't get a chance to really show off until intaking Gray Demon blood. The man's physique gives Ban's a good run for his money, and he's shirtless the entire fight. Chapter panels list this form as "grotesque"; you'll forgive us if we disagree. This form also marks a return from his former, more Bishounen-like form.
    • Later on in the manga, Hendrickson joins the good guys and in fact starts working at the Boar's Hat. It must be seen to be believed, hot damn.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Hendy" is used both affectionately and derisively by different people.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: He has striking ice-like blue eyes that align with him being a villain that lacks empathy. He retains only one in his first One-Winged Angel form as the other becomes a black eye of evil.
  • Klingon Promotion: He and Dreyfus killed Zaratras to gain the position of Great Holy Knight.
  • Kick the Dog: Hendrickson resurrecting Helbram a second time so that "King could now experience killing his best friend a third time" counts. There's also Hendrickson promising to Vivian beforehand that he would make Gilthunder finally belong to her, only to later stab Gil and state he wasn't breaking his promise since on a technicality, "Gil as a corpse would totally belong her".
  • Lack of Empathy: He shows little to no empathy with others as he manipulates them for his own purposes. Characters like Meliodas find this troubling as he was always extremely empathic and kind, causing them to wonder why he would do something as out of character as murdering the man he respected most in the world.
  • The Law of Diminishing Defensive Effort: In his final battle, he is so absurdly powerful that even the Sins pose no threat whatsoever. He actually lets Meliodas stab him in the chest only for the sword to not even break skin. The only time he bothers making a move for his own defense is when he swats Gowther's head off, since his illusion ability could still be a bother, and when the Revenge Counter is fully powered and aimed at him, which is indeed a One-Hit Kill.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He outright manipulates people for his own goals.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: Hendrickson opts to outright attempt to murder Arthur Pendragon just to free his own attention up.
    • Frankly, this is strange, as Hendrickson usually likes to keep a facade up. Looking on it, he could easily have pinned Arthur as trying to assassinate King Liones and crush them, given that he arrived wearing armor and with an illusion of an army behind him, intended on seeing the currently bedridden King while the Sins were attacking the city and giving the Holy Knights trouble, and conveniently decided to visit without saying what it is he wanted to speak to the King about. If Hendrickson had ever realized Merlin was with him, that alone would have been enough for Arthur's head. Yet, the only reason Hendrickson seems to want Arthur dead is simply because he can.
  • Necromancy: A forbidden technique he uses called "Enslavement of the Dead" is what he used to resurrect Helbram twice. Helbram returns to life thinking and intelligent, but it's implied that he literally cannot disobey Hendrickson's orders to keep killing humans.
  • Nice Guy: He was once known to be an immensely gentle and compassionate man. After being rid of demonic influence, he seems to have reverted back to his old ways.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: In his second One-Winged Angel form, he was unscathed after taking an attack from Meliodas and a combined attack of several Holy Knights. The whole force plus the Sins expend everything they have into beating him up, and he never takes a scratch. At one point, Meliodas stries to stab him, and not only does it not pierce Hendrickson, but Hendrickson's skin itself starts rejecting the blade and pushing it out. Even when he does appear to outwardly hurt, he doesn't seem to be taking any damage. Ultimately, it takes all of the attacks the remaining group has, focused into one big Revenge Counter to take Hendrickson out.
  • No Place for Me There: Dreyfus' "Nightmare Teller" induced dream in chapter 70 implies that this is another reason Hendrickson wants the Holy War to happen to the point of deposing the King who wanted to avoid it and reviving an enemy for the Holy Knights to fight. He believes the Holy Knights would have no place in a land of peace.
  • Not Quite Dead: Though initially thought to have been completely obliterated by Meliodas' counter attack in the final battle in the Liones capital, it turns out that a part of him survived though barely. He however would've succumbed to the wounds he sustained if weren't for Fraudrin's intervention.
  • Not What It Looks Like: At the Druid clan training hall, the Sins sense an ominous and familiar power and come across Hendrickson, bruised and bloody but standing tall and definitely not dead. Immediately after, they discover the unconscious and much-more-badly injured bodies of Gilthunder, Howzer, and Griamore. Naturally, it looks as though he kicked the crap out of them, but he was just training with them and lasted the longest.
  • Obviously Evil: You mean the creepiest-looking Holy Knight with weird eyes and the diabolical little chin beard is evil? You don't say.
  • Off with His Head!: Hendrickson inflicts this on two poor Holy Knights in his Grey Demon form, after the two commented that his Black Snow was dangerous, but easy to avoid. He twists their heads right off in one go while they're distracted. He also inflicts this on Gowther, smacking his head off when he tries to put him under illusion.
  • Oh, Crap!: When he realizes what Melidos was actually planning in the final battle against him.
  • One-Hit Kill: "Black Snow", a power that creates numerous black balls that instantly kills anyone who touches them.
    • "Dead End" is a much more powerful version of Black Snow as it concentrates every one of the balls into one large ball of darkness that not even Meliodas supposedly could survive from.
  • One-Winged Angel: Has two:
  • Organic Bra: If a Rare Male Example for this trope exists, Hendrickson is one. Once he gains his second One-Winged Angel form, he's technically completely naked, but everything under his waist is either not there or hidden by......whatever that black stuff is. It's definitely part of his body, as it is seamless with his demonic-looking feet. Also crosses over with Barbie Doll Anatomy and Full-Frontal Assault, since he doesn't appear to have nipples and he's definitely doing a lot of fighting.
  • Painfully Slow Projectile: Dead End apparently moves towards its target slowly enough for Hawk to not only jump in front of it to save Meliodas, but for several characters to panic and tell him to get out of the way and for him to reminisce and reinforce. And yes, all of this is out loud.
  • The Paragon Always Rebels: Hendrickson was hailed as being more gentle and kind than anyone in the kingdom. So much so that not only did the people and other Holy Knights of the kingdom completely trusted him, but King Baltra also genuinely believed that Hendrickson would be able to carry on the role of Great Holy Knight after Zaratras died. Hendrickson however decided to orchestrate a scheme that would betray everyone's trust. It's later implied that he was brainwashed into doing this.
  • Playing with Fire: In the time after while the Sins were away due to their initial Frame-Up, Hendrickson learned how to use the same kind of flame manipulation that Meliodas uses.
    • Fireballs: If he is unarmed, Hendrickson flings fireballs at opponents.
    • Flaming Sword: He uses this power on his sword.
    • Hellfire: Given the fact his first technique using said flames is called "Hellblaze Scream" and it's similarity to Meliodas' own flames, it appears that this fire is rather sinister in nature.
    • Spell Blade: Like Meliodas also, Hendrickson enchants his sword with the fire to set it a flame.
    • Technicolor Fire: The flames that Hendrickson uses are colored black.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Gains wings after absorbing the powers of the Gray Demon.
  • Power Level: After morphing into his Gray Demon form, his overall power is listed as 5800, greater than any of the Sins. The second Fanbook later lists down his level after he returns to normal from this as 2650 with his individual stats being Power: 1280, Strength: 800, and Spirit: 570.
  • The Power of Blood: When he's waking up after having been torn apart by Revenge Counter, even his juggernaut healing powers aren't working and he's having trouble pulling himself together. Dreyfus comes along, slashes open his arm, and drips some of the blood into Hendrickson's mouth. Hendrickson blacks out, wakes up, and is in one piece and completely healed. As would be shortly revealed, Dreyfus was being possessed by a demon, so this probably had something to do with it.
  • Pulling Themselves Together: Can heal injuries this way during his first One-Winged Angel form. However, while he can reattach himself from any attack, any damage Hendrickson received unfortunately still remains.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Hendrickson's eyes, once he intakes Grey Demon blood, go from one blue and one black to both being yellow with dark red sclerae. This is his most dangerous form by far.
  • Red Right Hand: His right eye becomes a black eye of evil similar to those who drank Demon Blood after assuming his first One-Winged Angel form. Also some strands of his hair end in demonic faces in a somewhat Medusa-like fashion.
  • Reformed, but Rejected: He and Dreyfus are stoned and punched by Denzel's grief-stricken companions, who blame him for helping to cause his demise.
  • Reverse Relationship Reveal: He's initially set up as the greater of two villains with Dreyfus. However, it's later revealed that he was actually a mere pawn being manipulated by the Demon that's possessing Dreyfus.
  • Ring of Power: He uses one to turn all of the New Generation Holy Knights into Demons.
  • Satanic Archetype: Looks the part after injecting himself with Gray Demon blood.
  • Significant Birth Date: What better birthday for a druid-turned-hell-demon than October 31st, Halloween?
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Early fan scanlations have his name spelled as Hendricksen. The official spelling though is Hendrickson.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: His irises in his Grey Demon form take on this color. With the Hellish Pupils and dark red sclerae, the image evokes Ulquiorra.
  • Tears of Remorse: He has these when Meliodas thanks him for saving Gil, Howzer and Griamore at the Druid home, broken down because Meliodas apparently doesn't bear even a slight grudge for all the evil he's done.
  • Unwitting Pawn: To Fraudrin who used him in order to free some of the Demon Clan and avoid the booby trap set up by the Goddess Clan.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When he realizes that Meliodas willingly took his attacks to power his Revenge Counter and is at full strength to execute it, Hendrickson actually tries to run for it. Only to be stopped by Griamore's barrier long enough for Meliodas to finish him.
  • Villainous Friendship: He had this with Dreyfus. His last words before transforming again showcase this as he laments not having the guy around to watch it.
  • We Have Become Complacent: Seems to believe that war is what keeps a civilization sharp.
    • War for Fun and Profit: As a result, he's trying to revive the Demon Clan so that the Holy Knights can go to war against them.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: He has white hair and is a villain.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: Hendrickson is a Druid, innately connected with nature and raised to revere the goddess clan. Studying demons though, and eventually intaking their dark powers via their blood, turns him into the first entity seriously capable of killing the Sins, and he does try. Whatever the glowy thing he did to Ban was, it erased his entire upper half.

Individual Holy Knights

    Twigo 

Twigo

Voiced by: Kenta Miyake (Japanese); Michael McConnohie (English), Víctor Covarrubias ((Latin American)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/twigo_surpirsed_to_see_the_group_alive.png

A large man who confronted Meliodas and Elizabeth but was defeated. He is actually not a proper Holy Knight but a subordinate with some authority and strength. Later, he was invited along with Jericho to officially join the Holy Knights. It didn't go well for him.


  • Back for the Dead: Returns after 20+ chapters, only to be killed by drinking demon blood.
  • Establishing Character Moment: His first act of complete disregard for his surbordinates essentially establishes that he and his fellow Holy Knights are holy in name only.
  • Fatal Flaw: He tends to hastily assess situations and make premature confirmations. Often times his assessments and premature confirmations are wrong.
  • Giant Mook: Technically what he is. He isn't even a Starter Villain as he wasn't that much of a threat to Meliodas.
  • Gone Horribly Wrong: His body couldn't handle the demonic transformation and blew itself apart.
  • Killed Off for Real: This pretty much happened to him based on the tropes above and below.
  • Mugging the Monster: He attacks Meliodas, not fully knowing beforehand the latter's true identity. He pays for it.
  • "Pop!" Goes the Human: He explodes after drinking demon blood.

    Gilthunder 

Gilthunder

Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano (Japanese); Robbie Daymond, Amanda Celine Miller (child) (English); Manuel Campuzano, Lion Ollivier (child) (Latin American)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seven_deadly_sins_gilthunder.png

Gilthunder is a Holy Knight with dominion over magic that allows him to generate and manipulate lightning. He is the son of the murdered Great Holy Knight, Zaratras. His rank within the Holy Knight order is Diamond.


  • Affectionate Nickname: "Little Gil" from Meliodas.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: For his strength, he was given the rank of Diamond.
  • The Atoner: He decides to atone for his wrongdoings after the incident with Hendrickson is cleared up.
  • Badass Boast: He has a tendency to boast how much strong he is in comparison to other people and his former self. The one he particularly uses a lot is that he is stronger than any of the Seven Deadly Sins. In reality though, his boasting of being stronger than any of the Sins is actually a Survival Mantra that Meliodas personally taught him 10 years prior should Gil be ever in a desperate situation. Due to knowing the full meaning behind Gil's boasting, Meliodas immediately figured out right away that something was wrong when the two of them reunited after a decade.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Margaret, they have known each other since their childhood and have now admitted their love for one another.
  • Childhood Friends: To Elizabeth, Veronica, Howzer, and Margaret.
  • Combination Attack: Has performed one with Howzer called "Dragon Castle" which is a massive electrified tornado.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He saw the murdered body of his father and was forced into not revealing the truth to keep Margaret safe.
  • Declaration of Protection: When they were children he swore to protect Princess Margaret with his life. The villains forced him to serve them by keeping a camouflaging lightning-proof chimera near Margaret at all times.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Gilthunder did this when visiting Bernia, which is known for their famous ale. Gilthunder mocked their efforts and when a boy, Mead, wanted to get even by putting a worm in his drink as a harmless prank, Gilthunder responded by plunging his sword into the ground and stopping the water flow, preventing the town from making their ale, nearly leading to their economic ruin since it's how they thrive.
  • Evil Is Petty: He nearly caused the death of a whole town due to a childish prank played on him.
  • Forced into Evil: The reason he did several jerkass things was because Margaret had been taken hostage and that he was under constant surveillance.
  • Good All Along: It turns out that Gilthunder was only acting the way he did because Margaret was being held hostage. The moment Meliodas slays the chimera near Margaret, Gilthunder rescues Meliodas by chopping off Hendrickson's hand.
  • Lady and Knight: The knight to Margaret's lady.
  • Lightning Bruiser: A literal example. His lightning attacks have both speed and power.
  • Meaningful Name: Gilthunder.
  • Oddly Shaped Sword: One of Gilthunder's swords has a lightning bolt-shaped blade.
  • The Paralyzer: He is able to paralyze people with his lightning.
  • Power Level: He has a power level of 1970. Later becomes 2330. The second Fanbook gives his individual stats at this 2330 level with them being Power: 1130, Strength: 670, and Spirit: 530.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Howzer's Red.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: When he was younger.
  • Secret Keeper: Not by choice. Margaret told him how she saw Dreyfus and Hendrickson killing his father but Vivian forced them to not say anything.
  • Shock and Awe: Gilthunder's main power.
  • The Stoic: Part of his cold personality is showing little to no emotion. Subverted when he no longer has to maintain his mean front, he begins to have scenes where the humor is him loudly talking about how he happens to feel at the moment with no filter whatsoever.
  • Took a Level in Badass: As a child, he always lost in his fights against Meliodas. Now? He is able to fight on par with his former teacher.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: When he was younger, Gilthunder was friendly. Years later and after joining the Holy Knights, he took on a more jerkass persona.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: In his childhood. he was a cheerful boy who wanted to be like the Seven Deadly Sins. Today, he's a emotionless and cruel man who hates the Sins for killing his father. It's actually a façade to protect Margaret.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is a shade of light pink.
  • You Killed My Father: He blames the Sins for supposedly killing his father. In reality, he knows exactly who killed his father. He promptly attacks his father's murderer, Hendrickson, the moment Margaret is freed.

    Jericho 

Jericho

Voiced by: Marina Inoue (Japanese), Erica Lindbeck (English), Alicia Barragán (Latin American)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jericho_sds.jpg

A Holy Knight apprentice who was stationed at Baste Dungeon where she was humiliated by Ban when the latter escaped. She later became an official Holy Knight when she along with Twigo were offered the position by Hendrickson. She alone got promoted. Later the demon blood causes her to go berserk and she is saved by Ban. She follows him as a Sidekick.

While relying on her speed and swordsmanship at first, losing her demonic powers led to a drastic drop in strength. After some intensive training, Jericho managed to unlock her inner magical ability, manipulating ice freely.


  • Accidental Misnaming: Ban never gets her name right, calling her things like Jaleco or Janko.
  • Action Girl: While she was a Faux Dark Action Girl, after becoming good and following around Ban, she has become a lot more competent. This is taken to the limit when she keeps both Ban AND Elaine alive while running with both on her own back from two of the Ten Commandments.
  • Adorkable: Her reaction to the existence of fairies is similar to a child with free rein in a candy store.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: On the receiving end of this from Ban who is trying to comfort her as she mourns over her brother's death.
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: Dismisses fairies as stories and legends after losing the powers she gained by drinking demon's blood.
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: We're initially led to believe that Jericho holds her brother Gustav in contempt for disapproving her wishes to becoming a Holy Knight. However, after turning into a demon and crushing Gustav in her grip, Jericho quickly comes to her senses, screaming in horror and begging someone to kill her.
  • Badass Normal: She manages to be a much more competent Action Girl after losing her demonic powers.
  • Bifauxnen: A very androgynous looking female. Ban even thought she was a male.
  • Blood Is the New Black: In one of her Brainwashed and Crazy moments, Jericho slathered her lips in blood like lipstick, claiming it to be her embracing her feminine side. Yeah, uh, that's not the way you're supposed to embrace it, Jericho dear.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Post Heel–Face Turn she has lost the power she gained from drinking demon blood. Well, she's still a step above regular humans, but she's still not much more than them when set up next to the Sins.
  • Butt-Monkey: Her encounter with Ban at Baste Dungeon completely humiliated her which is why she accepted Hendrickson's offer to drink demon blood in order to power herself up and erase her shame. After being purified of the demon blood, she's brought back down to normal however her troubles at being the butt of many a joke come back as well especially in matters involving Ban.
  • Cleavage Window: The torso part of her Holy Knight armor covers everything except for a large hole in the middle similar to the costume worn by Power Girl from DC Comics.
  • Covert Pervert: She readily agreed to pay for a room in a hotel for her and Ban because it had only one bed. To her dismay, Ban prefers to sleep in the floor over sharing a bed with her.
  • Dark Action Girl: After becoming a Holy Knight, she becomes more action oriented. However in comparison to Guila and thanks to her being somewhat a Fragile Speedster, Jericho comes off more as a Faux Dark Action Girl. She does become better after Ban manages to save her from her own demons... literally.
  • Defeat by Modesty: She was unable to fight back against Ban when he stripped her of her clothes without knowing beforehand she was a female. Later this appears to have become Ban's default method of dealing with her whenever she manages to annoy him.
  • Determinator: Refuses to leave Ban or Elaine behind after the clash with Galan and Merascylla, opting to carry them both to safety even with two of the Ten Commandments on her tail. She took a boulder to the face and still managed to make it impressively far.
  • Deus ex Machina: Even after Jericho's valiant effort to save Ban and Elaine from Galan and Merascylla, all three of them would still have been screwed if they hadn't stumbled upon a cave. Which happened to have a bar inside it. Where the bartender just happened to be Escanor. Regardless, it's the thought that counts and it still makes her awesome for keeping both her love interest AND rival in love alive long enough to stumble upon that cave in the first place.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: When Guila first switches sides, she is too distraught to even fight.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: What, you thought "Godspeed" was just a flashy name? Nah, she can friggin' control time. Of course, it isn't as drastic an ability as it would be in another series, but it let her beat Ban in a matter of seconds. Look under Time Master below for more detail.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: A small comic and the second OVA of the anime about a young Hendrickson shows that Jericho actually met Ban years ago. Not only that, the little girl actually asked Ban, a complete stranger, to marry her upon meeting him. It was just childish innocence though as she also asked Hendrickson the same question prior. Both Jericho and Ban apparently don't remember this meeting at all in the present.
  • Fragile Speedster: While these abilities give her speed, she however can't take powerful hits.
  • Freudian Excuse: Alot of Jericho's actions are motivated by her desire to prove her worth to her brother Gustav who has a Stay in the Kitchen attitude in regards to her gender.
  • Giant Poofy Sleeves: Her outfit before officially becoming a Holy Knight had these. They however were part of a man's attire typical of those worn in the medieval ages which the manga takes its setting from.
  • Glory Hound: Jericho seems more concerned with her personal standing than anything else. When Diane was injured, Jericho excitedly begged for the honor of taking her head and asked if she could have a higher rank.
  • Groin Attack: She delivers a brutal one to Ban upon ambushing him at the Vaizel festival. Judging by the sound he made and the blood splatter, well.... ouch. Notably, this isn't played for laughs at all.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Guila.
  • Hopeless Suitor: She develops a crush on Ban, who is on a quest to revive his beloved Elaine. King tells Jericho she doesn't have a chance with Ban, but she won't give up easily. Even after meeting up with a revived Elaine and seeing the love she and Ban have for one another, this STILL doesn't deter her.
  • An Ice Person: After Gustav's death, Jericho took a moment of tearful reflection. Upon doing so, she finally awakens her natural magical abilities which turns out to be similar to Gustav's ice powers. In essence, she basically inherits her late brother's will and thus she decides to try to become a Holy Knight again.
  • I Owe You My Life: She insists she must follow Ban around since she owes him her life, although that isn't her entire reason and Ban doesn't care about that.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Experiences this when she realizes she's crushing her brother to death after she's been turned into a Demon.
  • Obliviously Beautiful: She's stunned when Ban has to spell it out to her that the men in the bar at his hometown are staring because she is a pretty girl, something that didn't occur to her.
  • Ore Onna: She uses the Japanese male pronoun ore to refer to herself when talking.
  • Power Level: The second Fanbook lists her level as 270 with her individual stats being Power: 40, Strength: 130, and Spirit: 100. Of note, Jericho's stats along with other stats listed in the second Fanbook are those during the events wherein the Ten Commandments had become the main antagonists. As such, her stats in this Fanbook are those after she was stripped of her Demon Reactor powers.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Jericho finally meets Ban's love interest, Elaine, but out of jealously and due to the dark nature of her resurrection, the fairy tries to kill her. Ban tries to prevent her from hurting Jericho, but Elaine blasts him out of the way as a result. The following verbal beatdown then ensues:
    Jericho: You stupid bitch!!!
    Elaine: ...You don't need to be in such a hurry to die. I'll do it soon enough!!
    Jericho: After hearing you talk, I can tell that you're just a selfish woman!! I can't believe you can act like this to the man you fell in love with!!
    Elaine: This is all your fault...I just want Ban to quit trying to stop me from killing you!!
    Jericho: ...Do you really love Ban?!
    Elaine: ...I love him. IlovehimIlovehimIlovehimIlovehimIlovehimIlovehimIlovehimIlovehim!!!
    Jericho: I LOVE BAN TOO!!
    Elaine: I love Ban much more than you do!!
    Jericho: I won't lose to you!!
    Elaine: Ban will never love you!! He will never even look at you!!
    Jericho:...NOW LISTEN!! A FLAT-CHESTED MIDGET LIKE YOU HAS NOTHING ON SOMEONE WITH A CHEST AND HEIGHT!! I OWE MY LIFE TO BAN!! I'LL DO ANYTHING FOR HIM!! BUT I WILL NEVER DO ANYTHING THAT WOULD BRING PAIN TO A MAN I LOVE!! NEVER!! But...without you...Ban is nothing!! Every sleeping and waking moment, he only thinks of you. He's wandering the world trying to find a way to revive you!! Being controlled? Like I give a damn! I don't care how many times you say you love Ban...the fact that you're being controlled so easily shows how shallow your feelings are!!
    Elaine: ...I know. I know...Someone...Stop me!
  • Redemption Promotion: Played With, while she lost her demonic powers, post Heel–Face Turn she is a lot more competent and able to show off her abilities.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: She tends to end up in really embarrassing situations such as getting stripped by Ban, to her great dismay.
  • Rescue Romance: She ends up developing feelings for Ban after he saves her from her Demon form.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Gives an epic one to Elaine when she's rampaging out of control and states aloud that she would never allow something as mundane as "mind control" hurt the one she loves. The tirade is enough to snap Elaine back to normal.
  • Sidekick: Becomes this to Ban after he leaves the Sins, though he tried to get rid of her at first, seems to have come to tolerate her, since she went through great effort to save him from becoming a permanent part of the Fairy tree.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Followed Ban for 20 miles but angrily evaded the question as to why she was doing so rather than give a straightforward answer. She also tells King she won't stop following Ban around until he falls for her.
  • Super Speed: Several of her abilities after being promoted to Holy Knight status involve speed. See "Time Master" below.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: She dressed as a man as she thought of being a woman as weak. Later after officially becoming a Holy Knight, she adapted a more feminine armor attire.
  • Time Master: Initially, she just seemed to be a speedy opponent, but her "Godspeed" ability is theorized to be this by King. Of note is that not only can she increase her own speed, but according to him, she was able to slow down Ban's regeneration to a near complete stop with the same ability, making it seem as though she nulled his immortality. While she isn't able to stop it entirely, it still gives her such an edge on him that beating him went from impossible to easy very quickly when she gained a power boost. It's a more indicative name than first thought.
  • Tomboyish Name: She has a name usually reserved for males.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Wears her hair in one.
  • Tomboyish Voice: She has a raspy, vaguely deep voice to denote her masculine personality.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After drinking Demon Blood, she has the power to stand up to the Seven Deadly Sins, though she arguably falls into Faux Dark Action Girl territory. She really takes off in the badass department after losing her powers and becoming good again.
  • Tsundere: She acts all haughty and condescending towards Ban while she obviously has a huge crush on him. She even followed him around for twenty miles, and when he asks her why she did it she says it was because she was "curious" and then demands him to "take responsibility".

    Guila 

Guila

Voiced by: Mariya Ise (Japanese), Carrie Keranen (English), Kerygma Flores (Season 1, Signs of Holy War), Claudia Garzón (Revival of the Commandments)(Latin American)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seven_deadly_sins_guila.png

A female Holy Knight who was introduced when she was sent after the Sins in the Capital of the Dead. She is the daughter of Dale, a Holy Knight who once worshiped the Sins. After her father supposedly disappeared, she took on the responsibility of taking care of her brother, Zeal. She mostly answers directly to Helbram.

Polite to a fault and usually discreet, she distinguishes herself in combat with her magic, Explosion. Channeling it through her spear, Guila is a potent ranged fighter and a distinguished Holy Knight, respected among the army.


  • Affably Evil: During her fight with the Sins in the Necropolis, Guila acts unfailingly polite and cordial with them, even going so far as to compliment their strength and prowess. Following her Heel–Face Turn, Guila becomes a full on Nice Girl.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Lost a hand from Meliodas when his Super-Powered Evil Side took over. She gets better thanks to special restoring orbs.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: She tends to act smug when fighting, thanks to her abilities.
  • Big Sister Instinct: She'll do anything for her brother's happiness and safety. Even take a stand against Holy Knights who greatly overshadow her in rank and power. According to the first Fanbook in fact, she doesn't want to be enemies with her beloved brother.
  • Brainwashed: Gowther messed with her memories and feelings to make her believe she's his lover.
  • Bullying a Dragon: There were some punks in her home town who would throw rocks at her house and beat up her little brother because of their father's reputation as a Dirty Coward. She waited until her brother was asleep, then went out and murdered the bullies.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: To Helbram her superior after she found out he was framing the Sins and endangering innocent bystanders for no good reason.
  • Combination Attack: She has performed one with Howzer called "Bomb Cyclone" which is a very thin but very concentrated tornado with constant explosions engulfed within it.
  • Cool Big Sis: Really sweet to her little brother, who she dotes on.
  • Dark Action Girl: One of the most action oriented female Holy Knights.
  • Determinator: To a really extraordinary extent. When she learns that that Sins have gone into The Necropolis and the gatekeepers bar her entry she simply kills herself in order to continue the chase.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Most of the time she is seen with a rather eerily calm and rather smug smiling face when facing against opponents. It however breaks when things get serious.
  • Easily Forgiven: Despite being a pretty big thorn in the side of the Seven Deadly Sins and almost killing Veronica, nobody seems to hold it against her after her Heel–Face Turn, in fact. Veronica hires Guila to be the her personal swords trainer and has Guila and Zeal moved into the castle.
  • Establishing Character Moment: The first thing we see her do, when she finds out our heroes have entered the land of the dead, is kill herself to follow them.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Everything she did, joining the Holy Knights and drinking demon blood, is all so she can keep her little brother safe.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: She dislikes Helbram framing the Seven Deadly Sins for a crime they didn't commit.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Her eyes are constantly seen shut. It becomes a joke when the Sins draw on her eyelids some eyes after she is defeated. In reality, she just has really thin eyes according to a Q&A in the first Fanbook.
  • Fake Memories: Gowther completely altered her memories to make her believe she grew up as his fiancee and disciple and even made her forget about her little brother.
  • Hair Decorations: Her hairband.
  • Having a Blast: Guile has the ability, Explosion, which creates explosions with her rapier.
  • Heel Realization: She slowly starts to question her superior's motives after several moments in which they outright lie or refuse to tell the truth. She also starts to realize that what she and they have been doing is horrible when it comes dangerously near her family.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Jericho.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Sure, she murdered those guys in her town, but it's justified when it turns out that they (a group of adult men) had been willingly tormenting her brother (a little boy) for a while and, when she confronted them and heard their conversation, they were talking about burning their home!
  • Knight Templar Big Brother: She will kill anyone who messes with her little brother Zeal and will do anything in order to protect him. As such, she drank Demon blood to obtain the power to protect him.
  • Not Herself: Guila cares a whole lot for Zeal and would do anything for little brother. However, after the whole incident with Hendrickson, she suddenly completely ignores Zeal for Gowther who she completely out of the blue fell in love with. Turns out, Gowther brainwashed her into becoming his lover.
  • Only Mostly Dead: Stabs and puts herself in a state of near death in order to pursue the Sins to the Capital of the Dead, a place only either the dead or people with a shared memory with the dead can enter.
  • Power Level: According to the second Fanbook, her level is 1350 with her individual stats being Power: 700, Strength: 400, and Spirit: 250.
  • The Power of Love: Invoked. According to her, it's the reason why she didn't lose her powers after returning to normal thanks to Gowther. In actuality, Gowther really did invoke it as he replaced her painful memories with ones of her falling in love with him in order to suppress the Demon Blood she drank which fed off her pain. The problem, however is that Gowther decided to go further than that.
  • Promotion to Parent: Became this to her younger brother after her father mysteriously disappeared.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: In her bonus chapter detailing her day off from serving the antagonistic Holy Knights, she's shown taking care of her little brother, Zeal. It's only when she dons her armor to go to back to work that she decides to resume a more villainous role, the first act of which was to murder some bullies who had been tormenting her brother and were planning to burn their home.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Depending on the scene, the exact length of her hair varies between hip-length and thigh-length.
  • Royal Rapier: In her initial encounter with the Sins, she used a rapier as her primary weapon.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Early fan scanlations spelled her name as Geera prior to the official spelling of her name being revealed.
  • Smug Smiler: She's often seen with a smug smile on her face that she's almost a Perpetual Smiler. She drops it when things don't go exactly her way.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Has developed this type of relationship with Veronica.
  • Woman in White: When she first appeared to the Sins, she wore a predominately white attire.
  • Would Hurt a Child: She came dangerously close to strangling the two kids who told the heroes about Necropolis to death in order to get information about the said place out of them.

Helbram

Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu, Hiroshi Kamiya (true form) (Japanese), Richard Epcar, Kyle McCarley (true form) (English), Santos Alberto, Alberto Bernal (true form) (Latin American)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/helbram_human_form.png
Click here to see his true form 

A Holy Knight in golden armor who primarily uses magic. He is Hendrickson's second-in-command and is identified as a Cardinal. He initially appears as an old man but apparently he has a past with King whom he calls "old friend".

Able to enchant himself with defensive boons, Helbram maintains a connection with an elite squad of guards through his magic, Link. As such, this gives him full access to a variety of elemental spells ranging from Ice to Death.


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: His true form's full color scheme in the manga is completely different from what's depicted in the anime.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Helbram's entire backstory is enough to give any normal person a depressive and warped outlook on life. Seeing his body being manipulated by an even bigger monster leaves a bad taste in one's mouth.
  • All Your Powers Combined: His Link ability is capable of adding all the strengths and powers of all who stand before the orb to make Helbram stronger.
  • Ax-Crazy: When it comes to humans, Helbram is extremely unhinged. It's because of the horrific backstory of seeing his friends tortured and murdered that made him become a serial killer of humans.
  • Back from the Dead: Since fairy bodies don't rot, Helbram's corpse after King killed him in the past floated around the Black Market for over a century and a half until Hendrickson purchased and resurrected Helbram via the forbidden druid technique, "Enslavement of the Dead". After King kills Helbram a second time, Hendrickson resurrects Helbram a second time much to King's dismay.
  • Badass Grandpa: In his human form, Helbram is easily the strongest Holy Knight seen, barring the two Great Holy Knights. He went toe to toe with King and even with the demonic Meliodas, though King held back and Hendrickson was involved against Meliodas.
  • Bad Boss: Helbram treats his subordinates rather badly. This includes cases such as making Guila unknowingly blow up what remained of her father and transferring damage via his power Link so that his so called allies are the ones hurt instead of him. Considering his subordinates are human, it kinda makes sense given his past.
  • Berserker Tears: He weeps when screaming hysterically how he'll kill every human in King's past chapter.
  • Best Friend: He regarded King as this. The feeling was mutual and despite everything Helbram did, King never stops seeing him as his closest friend.
  • Bishōnen: His fairy form.
  • Came Back Wrong: After King kills Helbram a second time, Hendrickson resurrects the fairy once again. However, due to the limitations of the forbidden technique "Enslavement of the Dead", which erodes a person's soul and abilities every time they are revived, Helbram simply just came back as a mindless zombie when he is resurrected again. Though he was able to retain enough of his mind to communicate to King to put him out his misery... again.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Helbram is a mite spacy when he's not focusing.
  • Compelling Voice: Helbram's technique Blind Follow is a power in which he can hypnotize his allies via Link to blindly follow his commands and give their strengths to him regardless of their own opinions.
  • Cool Helmet: Helbram originally wore a golden demonic looking face covering helmet that has axehead-like horns. It can be best described as looking like a helmet designed after a hammerhead shark's head in shape.
  • Curiosity Killed the Cast: His curiosity over human culture got him and his friends captured by some humans who intended to rip their wings off to make medicine.
  • Curtains Match the Window: His eyes and hair are of the same color in his true form.
  • Dead All Along: Helbram actually had died when King killed him the first time in the past. The Helbram King fights against is actually a corpse brought to life by Hendrickson.
  • Dirty Old Man: Tends to fawn over cute girls and rarely addresses Guila and Jericho without pointing out how cute he finds them.
  • The Dragon: To Hendrickson. Helbram is the Knight he trusts most and privy to all Hendrickson's true plans.
  • Driven to Villainy: The humans he admired and trusted betrayed him and he was forced to watch as his fairy friends had their wings ripped out of their bodies and were tortured to death. Helbram was so broken from the experience that he spent the following 500 years slaughtering humans to see if that could sate his pain and hatred.
  • Dying as Yourself: At the verge of his second death, Helbram's insanity fades and he addresses King as his friend one last time.
  • Elemental Powers: Through his ability Link, he can control all sorts of elements depending on who he's allied with.
  • Evil Old Folks: In his human form, Helbram is the eldest of the Holy Knights shown so far.
  • Eyepatch of Power: He is shown to have an eyepatch covering his left eye when his human face isn't covered.
  • Fangs Are Evil: The only fairy to be a villain and his fangs are sharper than any other fairy seen so far.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Helbrams often comes off as a bit cooky but he is also usually like this when performing all sorts of atrocious actions.
  • Fighting from the Inside: After Hendrickson casting "Enslavement of the Dead" on him a second time, Helbram returns as a mindless zombie, but is able to regain enough control of himself to allow King to put him down for good this time.
  • Flight: He has the ability to fly through the air like the Fairy Clan. In reality, he is actually one of them.
  • Freudian Excuse: He attacks humans without a shred of remorse due to what happened to him and his friends in the past.
  • Friendly Ghost: After his final death, Helbram stays by King's side as a ghost and is now completely back to his old good self.
  • Glamour: His old man form is actually a disguise. His real form is actually a fairy.
  • Go Out with a Smile:
    • His third and final death has Helbram giving his Best Friend King one last smile before vanishing.
    • Later on, his ghost smiles at King before Helbram allows his helmet to be destroyed by the restless spirits of Corand.
  • Green Thumb: In his true form, he is capable of controlling giant tentacle-like roots that have faces on them.
  • Hellish Pupils: His true form has snake-like pupils, reflecting his unhinged nature.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: Initially, he viewed humans as simply as fascinating beings. However that all changed when he and his fairy friends were captured by greedy humans who intended to rip their wings off to make medicine.
  • Instant Costume Change: As a Fairy, Helbram is able to perform this trope like King.
  • Irrational Hatred: Due to what happened to him in his past, his hatred for humans has become extremely irrational over the centuries. During his battle with King, he states that he himself doesn't intend to continue killing humans however he just can't stop. It's somewhat hinted that he couldn't stop also due to the technique, "Enslavement of the Dead", which Hendrickson used to revive him in the first place.
  • Karmic Death: Helbram allows his helmet to be destroyed by the restless spirits of Corand, whom he killed.
  • Killed Off for Real: Diane, possessed by the angry legion of Corand's dead, crushes Helbram's helmet when the spirits realize he is the one who drove them to their demises. This results in his final death.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Like Hendrickson, Helbram is quite good at manipulating people. He even begins blasting a civilian city to blame it on Diane in a battle.
  • Please Kill Me If It Satisfies You: Because of Merascylla, Diane is possessed by the spirits of the humans from Corand. Knowing he was their killer, Helbram tries to appease the spirits by allowing them to crush the helmet his soul resides in. Unfortunately, even that isn't enough to sate the anger some of the dead still feel.
  • No Body Left Behind: After Hendrickson resurrects Helbram a second time, it takes King using his "Sunflower" technique to completely wipe Helbram's body from existence to finally put the poor guy down. All that's left of him is his helmet.
  • Pointy Ears: His fairy form has long, pointy elf-like ears.
  • Power Gives You Wings: His fairy form has wings
  • Powers as Programs: Link allows him to borrow and use the abilities of those who stand before the orb to aid him.
  • The Promise: With King, in a rather offhanded way, Helbram made King promise that if he ever came to a point wherein he would hate humans, King would stop him as King was Helbram's Best Friend. King eventually fulfills it by killing Helbram.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He is actually many hundreds of years old at the very least in any form as he is a fairy.
  • Redemption Equals Death: Although he was already a ghost by that point, Helbram allows the hateful souls of some of the humans he killed, which took control of Diane's body, to crush the helmet his soul resides in, all in order to protect King's and Diane's happiness.
  • Senseless Sacrifice: He tries to save King's girlfriend, Diane, from the Demonic Possession of the dead humans from Corand by letting the spirits take their revenge against him, since Helbram was the one who killed them. Helbram's helmet is crushed by the possessed Diane... but the spirits don't feel that is enough to sate their hatred.
  • Shapeshifter: He has the ability to shape shift between forms. His first appearance is a small imp like creature before he turns into a powerful old man.
  • Shapeshifter Default Form: Though not his true form, a fairy, he always defaults into the form of a human he met long ago, an old warrior with an eyepatch.
  • Spirit Advisor: Though he's finally killed off for the last time by King, Helbram decides to stay alongside his friend for a little while longer via inhabiting their shared Tragic Keepsake. He did this per Elaine's request.
  • Stupid Evil: Helbram heads full-on into this territory once he starts the attack on the Capital to frame the Sins. He, in the guise of a Holy Knight, not only starts attacking the people he's supposed to protect, he sits there and tries to kill Guila's little brother right in front of her, and begins transferring damage he receives to those linked to him, killing them and meaning trouble for the powers he's borrowing. He shoots himself in the foot twice over by killing his aids and turning powerful Holy Knights against him. Were Gilthunder and Drefyus not on his side, things likely might not have gone so well for him.
  • Synchronization: Helbram's foremost ability Link connects him with all those who stand before a special magical orb. This allows them to share their strengths and powers with him. However, it also allows Helbram to transfer whatever damage he takes with those he's linked to. Furthermore, while those who lend their powers via the ability can do so of their own free will, Helbram however can forcefully make them do so via the technique Blind Follow.
  • Telekinesis: In his true form, he is able to magically lift things in mid-air like King.
  • Tin Tyrant: Has shades of this when in full armor.
  • Touch of Death: One the abilities he uses called "Call of Inferno" is a "Death" power. It is a black fog that will slowly choke anyone in Helbram's vicinity regardless of who they are. It fortunately only lasts as long as Helbram is not harmed in the midst of casting it.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Helbram's helmet that he wears as an imp is actually a keepsake to remind him of what his curiosity got him and his friends into. It was actually supposed to be a present Helbram intended to give to King. His human form is also a keepsake as he uses it to remind himself of his hatred of humanity as it's the form of the man who killed his beloved friends and made Helbram into the twisted, cruel shell of himself he is now.
  • Tragic Villain: Helbram was once a kind fairy who was fascinated by humans until he saw his beloved friends tortured and slaughtered, leaving him as a hateful shell of himself. His hatred for humans had swelled for years up to a point wherein he can no longer bring himself to stop killing humans despite his own desire to do so.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: During Vaizel's annual fighting festival which featured Diane's weapon as the prize, he disguised himself as the festival's diminutive announcer, Helm. Apart from a few stares, nobody there questions long enough why an imp-like creature is the festival's announcer.
  • We Have Reserves: Helbram has this outlook with his subordinates as shown when he unhesitatingly transferred damage he received to his allies giving him strength via Link. His response to some of them being apparently killed is that there would always be replacements.
  • We Used to Be Friends: He and King were once best friends. Until Helbram went insane and sought to kill humans, forcing King to fulfill a vow to stop him with lethal force he had once made to a younger, kinder Helbram. Then Helbram is brought back to life through a forbidden spell, forcing King to fight him to death. Twice. After he is killed for good, Helbram's ghost goes back to his old self and amends his friendship with King.
  • Willfully Weak: In his human form, he has to rely on the abilities of others. In his true form however, he is actually as strong as a Great Holy Knight.
  • Would Hurt a Child: This is the final nail in the coffin to ensure that the viewer knows that, however tragic his past is, Helbram of today is a monster. Aside from the details under We Have Reserves and Ax-Crazy, he killed millions of humans, children included, in the 500 years King was amnesiac, and when a child (Zeal, Guila's little brother) is in the way of the destruction he was intentionally causing to frame the Sins as villains? He keeps right on going—he grins.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has green hair in both his human and true forms though they're of different shades. The former is yellow green while the latter is blue green. The anime though has the latter be of a lighter shade of yellow green.

    Griamore 

Griamore

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/45072a29_bbf6_3467_a9d5_b121d71b70dd.png

A huge hulking man who is charged with protecting Princess Veronica. He is the son of Dreyfus. A defensive warrior first and foremost, Griamore fights by creating magical barriers.


  • Achilles' Heel: His abilities are will and determination based. Thus if he falters psychologically, his barriers fail.
  • Amazon Chaser: He admits to finding Veronica's tomboyish personality attractive.
  • Barrier Warrior: Griamore's power Wall allows him to create a force field around him.
  • Beautiful All Along: A subtle male example. When he is first introduced, he wears a face concealing helmet and his hulking muscles and size would suggest at least a Face of a Thug. Several chapters later, he is seen without his helmet and it's shown that he has a decent looking face. Though it's relatively small on his disproportionately musclebound body.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He appears in the nick of time to save Elizabeth from Hendrickson.
  • Bodyguard Crush: It is implied towards Veronica.
  • Butt-Monkey: A lot of bad things happen to Griamore, such as being turned into a child.
  • The Champion: To Veronica.
  • Childhood Friends: A childhood friend of Elizabeth and Veronica's.
  • Cool Helmet: Has a face concealing helmet that wouldn't look out of place with Roman gladiators.
  • Cool Horse: Has a horse that's enormous compared to regular horses. Justified due to it's rider's size.
  • Fountain of Youth: After the druid cave training, he was turned into a child. It's later explained that Griamore had encountered and was cursed by a type of ancient revenant. Fortunately, the revenant's curse is cured by True Love's Kiss and Griamore is returned back to normal. Unfortunately however, he's put in a very compromising position that's quickly misunderstood by Guila when he's cured.
  • Has Two Daddies: Played With in a non-homosexual roundabout example. While Griamore was turned into a child, he saw Fraudrin as his father just as much as Dreyfus, his biological father, was. Due to having possessed Dreyfus and raised Griamore for so long, the demon could not help but see it that way as well. A later side story highlights this unique relationship further. The side story is a dream wherein Dreyfus, a child Griamore, and Fraudrin share a meal together like a family. Although it's not made clear who's actually having this dream, it's nonetheless presented as a happy one.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: He is practically enormous when compared to Veronica or any other regular sized person for that matter.
  • I Hate Past Me: He was victim of a revenant's curse that turns those it curses into what they fear most, such as turning a person who has a phobia of caterpillars into a caterpillar. As Griamore despised his younger weaker self the most, which Merlin explains to be very evident by his over-muscular present body, he was turned into a child.
  • Lady and Knight: The knight to Veronica's lady.
  • Power Level: He has a power level of 1520. The second Fanbook humorously lists his level after he's been turned into a child as 410 with his individual stats being Power: 390, Strength: 10, and Spirit: 10.
  • Reports of My Death Were Greatly Exaggerated: When he is attacked by his fellow Holy Knight Guila in Vaizel, it is decided that to cover up the whole thing he would be reported as being killed by the Seven Deadly Sins. He actually survives through the whole chaos in Vaizel unseen by the other Holy Knights but nonetheless he is still reported as being killed much to the sorrow of his father Dreyfus.
  • Shipper on Deck: Griamore teases Gilthunder about how he and Margaret make a cute couple.
  • Shirtless Scene: He spends part of first Vaizel arc without a shirt on.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Early fan scanlations have his name spelled as Griamor without an e at the end. The official spelling though is Griamore with an e at the end.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Apart from differing eye and hair colors as shown in some colored pages,note  Griamore and his father Dreyfus' respective faces pretty much look like one another. Their strong resemblance is more apparent in regular black and white pages wherein Dreyfus' facial hair is the only thing that can tell them apart.
  • Teeth Flying: Hendrickson elbows him in the mouth so hard that he loses several teeth. It doesn't last long as everyone on the battlefield gets their wounds healed by Elizabeth.
  • Tender Tears: His child self is a crybaby.
  • True Love's Kiss: He is cured of the revenant curse that turned him into a child by an innocent kiss on the forehead by the one he loves the most, Veronica, who was consoling his tearful child-self after what happened to Fraudrin. Unfortunately as neither Griamore nor Veronica knew this was the cure, he suddenly grew and burst out of his child-sized pajamas much to the two's surprise. This resulted in a naked Griamore over Veronica in bed, a situation that Guila quickly misunderstood and blasted Griamore away for upon entering the room after hearing the princess' screams.
  • Undying Loyalty: Griamore is completely loyal to Veronica.

    Howzer 

Howzer

Voiced by: Ryohei Kimura (Japanese), Ray Chase (English), Eduardo Ramírez (Season 1, Signs of Holy War), Elliot Leguizamo (Revival of the Commandments)(Latin American)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hauser_wearing_armor.png

Howzer is a rather hotblooded Holy Knight who is a colleague and partner of Gilthunder. His rank within the Holy Knight order is Platinum. As free as the wind, his magical element, Howzer often butts with his hierarchy or his comrades due to his lack of discipline. His courage and honesty more than make up for it.


  • Adaptation-Induced Plot Hole: In the first season of the anime, some events were changed wherein Howzer doesn't get severely wounded by Dreyfus. This leads to him participating in the battle with Hendrickson when he originally didn't in the manga. In the second season however, these particular changes are completely ignored and unaddressed. Things instead follow the manga with not only it being mentioned that Howzer was wounded but also him not knowing the powers of a Gray Demon which Hendrickson used when he eventually encounters such a demon.
  • All There in the Manual: From a Q&A in the first Fanbook, he originally comes from blacksmith family and his father's name is Raizer.
  • Amazon Chaser: Howzer starts to develop a crush on Diane after fighting her during Vaizel Fighting Festival. During her fight against Meliodas, Howzer can only watch slack-jawed in awe.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: For his strength, he was given the rank of Platinum which while lower than Diamond, is still rather impressive.
  • Blow You Away: His main power.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Howzer is often very boisterous especially when it comes to fighting.
  • Broken Pedestal: When he discovers that Dreyfus killed Zaratras.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: Veronica points out that Howzer can't keep a secret.
  • Combination Attack: Has performed one each with Gilthunder and Guila. The one with Gilthunder called "Dragon Castle" is a massive electrified tornado. The one with Guila called "Bomb Cyclone" is a thinner but more concentrated tornado with constant explosions engulfed within it.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Howzer prefers not to fight female opponents when they might be revealing more cleavage than necessary.
  • Double Entendre: While Howzer didn't intentionally mean it in his fight with Diane, a lot of his battle banter can be interpreted as Double Entendre.
  • Heel Realization: After witnessing several dishonorable actions from his fellow knights, he comes to realize that they're not the heros they claim to be.
  • Honor Before Reason: After one too many dishonorable acts from his fellow knights and too many honorable ones from the Sins, he decides that he has had enough and that the most honorable thing to do is protect Diane from his so-called fellow knights.
  • Hopeless Suitor: It's strongly implied that Howzer has feelings for Diane, unfortunately for him, it seems she will fall in love with King no matter how many times she loses her memories.
  • Jousting Lance: Howzer's usual Weapon of Choice is a lance.
  • Magic Knight: He is such powerful one that only he and Gilthunder were sent to deal with a Barbarian Invasion.
  • Power Level: He has a power level of 1910. Later becomes 2350. The second Fanbook gives his individual stats at this 2350 level with them being Power: 1090, Strength: 700, and Spirit: 560.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Calling him a villain is a stretch. Howzer's a pretty swell fellow and genuinely believes in protecting the innocent.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Gilthunder's Blue.
  • Samaritan Relationship Starter: Though he was initially generally antagonistic towards Diane upon learning her true identity of being a member of the Sins, Howzer starts developing feelings towards her upon witnessing that she isn't a criminal as she is made out to be when she saves an old man who was caught in an attack caused by his fellow Holy Knights.
  • Spared By Adaptation: In a sense in the anime. Due to changes in the first season of the anime, Dreyfus doesn't blow a hole through him. He instead survives and even participates in the battle against Hendrickson. In the second season however, the changes are completely ignored with it being mentioned that Howzer being wounded by Dreyfus.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Early fan scanlations have his name spelled as Hauser. The official spelling though is Howzer.
  • Spirited Competitor: Howzer enjoys fighting and seeing people fight. However, he only exerts his full strength if his opponent is worthy enough.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: When Howzer's father is seen, it becomes very obvious where Howzer get his looks from, right down to the similar hairstyle. The only differences are slightly different skin tone and his father has a beard.
  • Time to Step Up, Commander: After Dreyfus is freed of the demon controlling him and Britannia saved for the time being from the Ten Commandments King Liones decides that the next Grand Holy Knight will be him, not the redeemed Dreyfus or Hendrickson.
  • Token Good Teammate: Unlike the other Holy Knights, Howzer actually cares about defending the innocent and has a strong sense of justice. He was quick to reprimand Marmas for using his magic on Diane when she posed no threat as well as a defenseless civilian. He also came to Diane's defense when an injured Diane put herself in harm's way to save Zeal from a collapsing building.
  • Tornado Move: Howzer's power is the ability to create tornadoes either as Razor Wind or to blow people away.
  • Torso with a View: He gets a huge hole through his body courtesy of Dreyfus escaping from him and the Dawn Roar members. Howzer however apparently survived.
  • Victory Pose: Howzer performs this during the first Vaizel Fighting Festival.
  • Worthy Opponent: How he sees Diane.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Downplayed. Howzer isn't willing to go all out on any girl unless they can fight well against him.

Marmas is a Holy Knight who wears an odd pillbug-like armor and uses maracas to cast gravity-based magic.


  • Ambiguously Human: In a Q&A from the first Fanbook, there was a question about whether Marmas is a human or not. He actually is and an old man in fact.
  • Animal Motifs: Pillbug.
  • Gravity Master: His ability allows him to increase the gravitational pull of any opponent.
  • Mauve Shirt: He joins Jericho and Guila when they interrupt the Vaizel Fighting Festival to fight the Sins. He survives his conflict with Diane. Later, he's one of the knights who survive and aid Meliodas against Hendrickson. After that, he's then seen again defending the kingdom against the Ten Commandments. Unfortunately this time, he gets weakened by Estarossa's commandment and then gets unceremoniously killed by some civilians affected by Zeldris' commandment.
  • Musical Assassin: He uses maracas to use his ability.

Dale was Guila and Zeal's ever doting father. He was a Holy Knight who back when the Seven Deady Sins weren't framed as murderers, wanted to be like them and become something his daughter would be proud of. He seemingly ran away and abandoned his children.


  • Chekhov M.I.A.: Originally mentioned as missing, he later shows up as the Armored Giant. See its entry for more details.
  • Dirty Coward: Has a reputation as this since he seemingly abandoned his children and Holy Knight duties. In reality, it was because he was mutated into the Armored Giant. See more on its entry.
  • Disappeared Dad: He mysteriously disappeared, leaving his children Guila and Zeal on their own.
  • Doting Parent: Dale's most defining characteristic was him caring for his children. His nickname was even "Doting Dale" due to his love for them.
  • Good Parents: He was a very good parent to his kids before he disappeared.

  • Power Level: According to Volume 15 of the manga, his was 1220 before certain circumstances.

Click to see her without the mask 

Vivian is a masked Holy Knight who directly serves under Great Holy Knight Hendrickson. She is the greatest magician in the Kingdom of Liones and the former apprentice of Merlin.


  • Always Someone Better: Merlin is this to her. That said, Merlin is an incredibly powerful archmage.
  • Anti-Villain:
    • Vivian's kind of an ass, but never really does anything incredibly cruel and in fact allows Elizabeth to see her sister and father. She's obsessed with Gilthunder to a creepy degree, but she honestly does seem to like him and would never want him hurt.
    • In the anime, Vivian supported Hendrickson in his desire to release the Demon Clan because she believed that it was merely composed of Red and Gray Demons, and she knew ways of defeating them. She was unaware of the existence of more powerful demons, such as the Ten Commandments and cried in remorse after realizing that she could have doomed Britannia.
  • The Archmage: She is capable to unleashing several devastating attacks and according to King who sensed her powers from afar, she is as powerful as a Great Holy Knight. She is only outclassed and finally defeated when Merlin shows up and outdoes her on every level.
  • Attack Reflector: Her "Perfect Cube" spell is a barrier which she used to surround King Baltra Liones' bedchambers. It prevents any attack through and instead reflects it back at the attacker.
  • Cool Helmet: She has a helmet whose design is that of hands wrapping around her entire head. It basically makes her look like the bubble-headed nurses of Silent Hill.
  • Battle Ballgown: Her attire is basically a red gown and a helmet.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's on the side of the villains and is definitely capable in a fight. Were it not for Merlin, Vivian alone likely would've been able to kill the Sins after the battle—she can teleport them to other worlds for crying out loud.
  • The Dragon: Seems to take up this role under Hendrickson after Helbram is defeated.
  • Elemental Powers: A number of her spells revolve around the manipulation of elements. One of her most powerful ones called "Quad Element Destroyer" combines wind, water, fire, and earth into a single energy blast.
  • Evil Sorceress: She is essentially an evil sorceress what with her spells and being a villain.
  • Gender Bender: It's later revealed in the story that Gilfrost the ice magician that formed a bond of sorts with Gilthunder is actually Vivian who had transformed herself into a man with her magic. She did so to further stalk Gilthunder in disguise after she was exiled from the kingdom for her past actions.
  • Glowing Eyes: A red glow can be seen under her helmet.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: According to Merlin, this is her biggest flaw.
  • An Ice Person: One of her spells "Freeze Coffin" allows her to freeze opponents.
  • Inelegant Blubbering: At the end of chapter 84.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Merlin punishes her after Hendrickson's defeat for her pursing Gil by placing on her a cursed ring. Anytime she uses magic on Gil the curse will create powerful bruises and if they spread over her body, she will die.
  • Magic Enhancement: Her "Power Amplify" ability is a spell that she uses to increase the power of another person's attack. "Bend Room" is a spell that bends the trajectory of an attack. Both times she uses this to aid Gilthunder.
  • Magic Staff: She uses a staff with a large menacing claw attached on top of it.
  • Mrs. Robinson: She's apparently been stalking Gilthunder since he was eleven and she was nineteen.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: In the anime, Vivian believed that the Demon Clan was consisted of just Red and Gray Demons, which she spent years studying ways to counter them. When Merlin explains that there are demons superior to them, like the Ten Commandments, that could conquer Britannia easily, Vivian breaks down in tears for what she could have done.
  • Power Level: According to the second Fanbook, her level is 2580 with her individual stats being Power: 2200, Strength: 40, and Spirit: 340.
  • The Red Mage: Other than the fact that she dresses in red, she is capable of performing a wide assortment of powers that range from teleportation to elemental based attacks as opposed to most other characters who primarily specialize in one type of ability. She is also different from Helbram as it appears that her powers are her own rather than those borrowed from others.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: She is named and based after Viviane the Lady of Lake and student of Merlin from the original Arthurian Mythos.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": In the first Fanbook, her name is spelled as Viviann with two n's. Volume 15 of the manga proper though spells her name simply as Vivian with one n.
  • Stalker with a Crush: She is absolutely obsessed with Gilthunder. The second Fanbook even emphasizes her being a creepy stalker more by listing stalking and observation as her special ability and hobby respectively.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: Despite the fact she is annoyed by the curse afflicted by Merlin, she seems a bit too content for Gilthunder to "punish" her with it.
  • Villain Teleportation: One of her foremost abilities is teleporting herself and others to other locations.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: She has a strong dislike for pigs. Her teacher being the Crimson Boar likely has to do with this.
  • Yandere: Towards Gilthunder.

One of Helbram's subordinates and Jericho's brother. Manipulates Ice magic.


  • Aloof Big Brother: Subverted. While he does treats his younger sister coldly and disapproves of her more rambunctious choices, this is really a case of Tough Love. See Big Brother Instinct below.
  • And This Is for...: Gustav says this almost verbatim right before unleashing a rapid series of ice attacks against Hendrickson in his Grey Demon form.
  • Big Brother Instinct: His cold attitude towards Jericho in truth however is because he doesn't want her to be hurt.
    • Once is when he screamed for somebody to help save her from herself when she turned into a Demon that so happened to be crushing him also at the time, rather than asking for help for himself.
    • Another time is when, despite being badly injured, he unleashes a powerful ice magic attack to save his sister from becoming a demon when Gray Road's egg around her was about to hatch.
  • Big Damn Heroes: The second incident with saving Jericho with his ice magic despite being wounded and carried around comes out of nowhere.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Prior to lending his power to Helbram, he appears in an extra page in volume 8 which reveals that he is Jericho's brother.
  • Heroic RRoD: He exhausted his magical power trying to save Jericho after being gravely wounded, causing him to die. Jericho was absolutely heartbroken.
  • An Ice Person: He has Ice powers which he lends to Helbram.
  • Stay in the Kitchen: He believes that Jericho should not be a Holy Knight due to her gender. In truth however, it's more because he wanted her to stay safe.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Either his hair is lavender or silver.

The Weird Fangs

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/weird_fangs_anime.png
Clockwise from top left: Golgius, Friesia, Jude, Ruin

The Weird Fangs are a group of four Holy Knights that were stationed in the Baste dungeon. They antagonized Meliodas and the companions he had then when they came looking for Ban. Three of the Weird Fangs survived this encounter and it's revealed much later in the story that they were chased out of Liones for all the misdeeds that they had done, all of whom unmasked themselves. Unfortunately, a brazen attack by the Demon Clan whittled their number down even further to but one, Golgius.


    Friesia 

Friesia

Voiced by: Megumi Han (Japanese), Melissa Fahn (English), Adriana Núñez (Latin American)

Friesia is a member of the Weird Fangs who possesses bug themed armor and the ability to control bugs.


  • Animal Motifs: Bugs.
  • Back for the Dead: She returns back in the story after the Demon Clan takes over Britannia following Meliodas' apparent death with Ruin, only for the two of them to have their souls eaten by Fraudrin.
  • Cool Helmet: Friesia has a helmet that looks like a large tick.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: After Ruin's powers on Meliodas and Diane are broken, Friesia is completely squashed like one of her bugs by Diane.
  • Floral Theme Naming: Her name is a type of flower.
  • Pest Controller: Friesia has the ability to control swarms of bugs.
  • Poison Is Corrosive: Friesia's bugs are capable of spraying poison so corrosive that it can dissolve stone.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Due to the armor she wore originally, it was hard to discern that she was actually a girl. The anime though gave her a distinctively female voice. Later when she returns back in the story, she appears without the bug themed armor and wearing an outfit that clearly reveals her actual gender.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Her name has been spelled as either Friesia or Freesia in fan scanlations.
  • Whip It Good: Friesia uses a two tailed whip as her main weapon.

    Golgius 

Golgius

Voiced by: Yuichi Nagashima (Japanese); Doug Stone (English); Guillermo Coria (Season 1), Ernesto Mascarúa (Revival of the Commandments)(Latin American)

Golgius is a member of the Weird Fangs who possesses a distinctively demonic looking helmet. He enlists the aid of Dr. Dana to poison Meliodas with the promise that they'd return the doctor's daughter in return who the Weird Fangs had taken earlier. Fights through trickery, making himself invisible and stabbing people in the back more or less literally.


  • Cool Helmet: Golgius has a demonic faced helmet with horns protruding at its side.
  • Dirty Coward: A near-total coward, and the only one who lived among his peers because he ran away.
  • Invisible Jerkass: Golgius is this considering his tactics. Being able to turn himself invisible aids him in cowardly escapes and underhanded fights. All in all, the man's a self-serving Knight In Sour Armor.
  • Invisibility: What Golgius' ability really is.
  • Oddly Shaped Sword: Golgius uses a sword whose blade splits off into a three pronged trident-like shape at the tip.
  • Sole Survivor: After Ruin and Freesia are eaten by demons, he is the only one of the group still around.
  • Villain Teleportation: What Golgius initially claimed his ability was.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Golgius backstabs Dr. Dana after the doctor poisons Meliodas in order to silence him. The doctor fortunately got better.

    Ruin 

Ruin

Voiced by: Atsushi Ono (Japanese); Marc Diraison (English); Ricardo Méndez (Season 1), Óscar Gómez (Revival of the Commandments)(Latin American)

Ruin is a member of the Weird Fangs who possesses mainly illusion based abilities.


  • Back for the Dead: He returns back in the story after the Demon Clan takes over Britannia following Meliodas' apparent death with Friesia, only for the two of them to have their souls eaten by Fraudrin.
  • Cool Helmet: Ruin has a helmet whose visor has a feminine human face.
  • Expy: Upon returning back to the story, his unmasked face is revealed. Design-wise, his bald monk-like appearance resembles Nenbutsu Bancho from Suzuki Nakaba's previous work Kongoh Bancho. Furthering the similarity is the fact that Ruin has a technique involving his abdomen, something that Nenbutsu Bancho had.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: What he makes Diane and Meliodas do with his illusions.
  • Made of Iron: He has a technique in which he basically strengthens his abs greatly to withstand attacks. Unfortunately for him, it wasn't strong enough to survive those delivered by Meliodas.
  • Master of Illusion: The bell on Ruin's staff allows him to create illusions to trick his opponents.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His name is Ruin.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Ruin disguises himself as a little boy in peril with his staff's ability in order to get at Elizabeth.

    Jude 

Jude

Voiced by: Nobuyuki Hiyama (Japanese), Jalen K. Cassell (English), Óscar Gómez (Latin American)

Jude is a member of the Weird Fangs who boasts to having captured Ban in the past. In reality though, Ban merely let himself be captured by Jude.


  • Cool Helmet: Jude has helmet whose visor is designed like a bunch of thorns.
  • Killed Off for Real: Jude is killed off by Ban.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: From what little we saw of him, his weapon of choice seems to be a specially designed shield. Spikes line it that can be detached to be used as stakes, and it has a large rose symbol on it.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Jude has a brief encounter with Ban. Nothing much is seen from it as Ban immediately kills Jude after revealing that he simply let Jude capture him. He doesn't even live long enough for his real face to be shown.


The Pleiades of the Azure Sky

A group of Holy Knights who serve under Lord Denzel Liones, assistant to the Great Holy Knight. They were stationed to guard the borders by Hendrickson and Dreyfus. As such, they weren't around when the Sins came back to the capital and cleared their names.


    Tropes pertaining to The Pleiades in general 

  • Asskicking Equals Authority: For their strengths, three of the group's members have been given high ranks. Death Pierce holds a Diamond ranking while Dogget and Waillo hold Platinum ranks.
  • Disney Death: When Fraudrin decided to take the Pleiades all out with a devastating attack after Gray Lord rescued him from them, it looked like they were all killed. Fortunately though, Dogget managed to save his comrades in time with his ability Boost.
  • Love Triangle: There exists one within the group which the second Fanbook further reveals in detail. Waillo is madly in love with Deldrey however she is uninterested in him. Deldrey instead is in love with Arden despite her often picking on him. This is also her regret especially since Arden is a Casanova Wannabe who goes gaga whenever there's a cute girl around even when Deldrey is right beside him.
  • Reassigned to Antarctica: The Pleiades were stationed on the borders of the kingdom by Hendrickson and Dreyfus to prevent the group from interfering with the coup of the kingdom and other plans.

    Denzel Liones

  • Badass Grandpa: Denzel might be considerably old but he's no slouch.
  • Badass Mustache: Lord Denzel sports a long badass mustache and beard ensemble.
  • Curse: Denzel's ability Dead Man's Revenge is basically one as it involves placing a sacred seal on an opponent's body which causes them to be haunted by the ghosts they've slain. Not only that but those very ghosts will also seek the very lives of those with the seal until they fall dead. The seal cannot be taken out normally as it will just appear somewhere else on the afflicted's body.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: The sword Denzel used to interrogate Fraudrin with had been blessed with the prayers of the druids and as such affects demons stabbed by it greatly.
  • Power Level: According to the second Fanbook, his level is 2870 with his individual stats being Power: 1320, Strength: 880, and Spirit: 670.
  • Senseless Sacrifice: He attempts a Heroic Sacrifice by letting Nerobasta the goddess in his sword possess his body to deal with the Ten Commandments invading the Liones castle. It unfortunately accomplishes nothing as Nerobasta in Denzel's body refuses to help and tries to bail out from the scene. What's more, she gets him killed anyway when Derriere slices Denzel's body in the midst of Nerobasta's explanation.
  • Warrior Prince: Lord Denzel Liones who's a prince by birthright and badass when in action.
  • Willing Channeler: At a crucial moment wherein the Ten Commandments appear and threaten to do harm to his brother along with everyone else with Baltra, Denzel becomes this to the goddess residing in his sword Nerobasta in order to defeat them.

    Death Pierce 

Death Pierce

Voiced by: Youhei Azakami (Japanese), Ben Lepley (English), Guillermo Rojas (Latin American)

Death Pierce is a long haired mustachioed member of the Pleiades of the Azure Sky. Along with his skills as a Holy Knight, he has a fairy friend named Invisible who aids him as a reconnaissance of sorts.


  • Badass Mustache: He sports a fancy mustache.
  • Counterspell: Death Pierce's Melody ability is basically this. According to him, magic is basically music with its rhythm, dynamics, and speed. With his Melody ability, he can manipulate said rhythm of others' magic like music thereby delaying the speed of their execution. Before this ability, he claims that all offense based magic is useless against him.
  • Invisibility: The ability of Death Pierce's tiny fairy friend Invisible allows her presence to be completely masked. She can't be seen or even be sensed at all. Due to Death Pierce being friends with her since he was a child, only he can see her.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Death Pierce.
  • Personality Powers: Invisible, Death Pierce's tiny fairy friend who wears only kneesocks is extremely bashful. Her ability in reflection to her personality is masking her presence completely from everyone except for her friend Death Pierce.
  • Power Level: Death Pierce's is 1690. The second Fanbook later reveals his individual stats as Power: 730, Strength: 540, and Spirit: 420.
  • You Are in Command Now: After Denzel's death, he's become the new leader of the Pleiades.

    Waillo 

Waillo

Voiced by: Ryuunosuke Watanuki (Japanese), Kirk Thornton (English), Leonardo García (Latin American)

Waillo is a small but powerful member of the Pleiades of the Azure Sky. He has feelings for his fellow Pleiades member Deldrey for which she doesn't reciprocate.


  • Abhorrent Admirer: Waillo is this towards Deldrey.
  • Badass Mustache: He sports a strong looking one.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Waillo is quite a short fellow but according to the Balor Eye's readings taken when he, Dogget, and Death Pierce came to the Sins' award ceremony, he's the strongest among the three. He later proves those readings to be true when he comes to the aid of Arden and Deldrey in their confrontation with Fraudrin.
  • Power Level: Waillo's is 1710. The second Fanbook later reveals his individual stats as Power: 300, Strength: 870, and Spirit: 540.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: The second Fanbook reveals that Waillo, arguably the most physical manly bruiser within the Pleiades, likes growing flowers as a hobby.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name has been spelled in fan translations as Wayeo. The official spelling though is Waillo as revealed in Volume 30 of the manga.

    Dogget 

Dogget

Voiced by: Hiromichi Tezuka (Japanese), Enrique Cervantes (Latin American)

Dogget is a tall and rather cocky member of the Pleiades of the Azure Sky. In particular when he, Death Pierce and Waillo confronted the Sins during their award ceremony for saving the kingdom to express some concerns as the Pleiades weren't around then, Dogget was the most confrontational of the three. Can move in short bursts of speed thanks to his ability, Boost.


  • Bullying a Dragon: Dogget decides to challenge Meliodas, disbelieving the claims of strength that the captain of the Sins is famous for. He even smack talks that Hendrickson and Dreyfus were probably weaklings if they were beaten by Meliodas. He learns though that such claims weren't exaggerations.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He is quite short tempered which the second Fanbook makes a note of. It proves to be his Fatal Flaw.
  • Paper Tiger: Dogget for all his bravado, turns out to be this when he confronts Meliodas.
  • Power Level: Dogget has a power level of 860 with his stats being Power: 290, Strength: 470, and Spirit: 100.
  • Rapid Aging: Recklessly kills two demon-turned servants in Grayroad's presence, having all his years drained from him and becoming an empty husk.
  • Speak Ill of the Dead: Dogget disrespects both Dreyfus and Hendrickson who were assumed deceased for which Meliodas calls him out on it.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Dogget, Dogedo, or Dogged?
  • Super Speed: His ability Boost based on what's revealed so far seems to involve speed as it allowed him to save his comrades in the nick of time.

    Deldrey 

Deldrey

Voiced by: Emiri Katou (Japanese), Kayli Mills (English), Azul Valadez (Latin American)

Deldrey is a female mage member of the Pleiades of the Azure Sky. She and Arden are Canon Immigrants to the story having started as characters in the Seven Deadly Sins mobile game Knights in the Pocket. Is kind of a trickster, using Love magic to seduce male opponents without fault, leading them to drop their guard and become easy prey for her team.


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: The colorschemes of both Arden and Deldrey differ in the mobile game they originated from and the manga proper. While Deldrey's hair is green in both versions, her outfit's colored completely different in each. To state some of the more noticeable differences, her gloves and skirt are violet and her armor is purple in the game, while in the manga her gloves and skirt are dark red and her armor is white.
  • Canon Immigrant: Deldrey and Arden started out as original characters drawn by Nakaba for the Seven Deadly Sins mobile game Knights in the Pocket before being added into the story proper.
  • Irony: Deldrey has magic which can make people fall in love with her. The one person she has feelings for however is completely oblivious to her affections.
  • Love Spell: Love Drive is Deldrey's special ability which allows her to intensify whatever slight feeling of affection those who've been charmed by her may have and turn it into blind unquestioning loving loyalty. This also makes those affected do otherwise crazy things typically associated of an overprotective lover such as shielding her from attacks with their own body and attacking those who'd harm her. The latter includes even inflicting harm to their very selves if they themselves try to harm Deldrey. The intensity of the ability depends on what Deldrey does to charm those affected. For instance, a mere kiss on the cheek would make those affected slightly be still in control of themselves, while a full on mouth to mouth kiss would make them be more completely devoted to protecting her.
  • Loving Bully: She tends to pick on Arden and the second Fanbook even makes a note of this. She however is in love with Arden despite her own reservations against him.
  • Magic Staff: A crook with a heart shaped hook wielded by Deldrey.
  • Power Level: According to the second Fanbook, her level is 930 with her individual stats being Power: 720, Strength: 30, and Spirit: 180.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Deldrey or Deldere?
  • Tsundere: She acts mean to Arden but in reality, she's in love with him. They have their few tender moments together however the moment a cute girl comes along, he gets easily distracted and she goes right back to being mean towards him.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Deldrey has green hair.

    Arden 

Arden

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Japanese), Billy Kametz (English), Roberto Cuevas (Latin American)

Arden is spiky haired archer kid member of the Pleiades of the Azure Sky. He and Deldrey are Canon Immigrants to the story having started as characters in the Seven Deadly Sins mobile game Knights in the Pocket. Fights with a bow, imbuing his arrows with strength-draining magic.


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: The colorschemes of both Arden and Deldrey differ in the mobile game they originated from and the manga proper. Arden's gloves and hair are red in the game but white and violetish white respectively in the manga.
  • Archer Archetype: Arden, a spiky haired kid armed with a bow and arrow.
  • Canon Immigrant: Arden and Deldrey started out as original characters drawn by Nakaba for the Seven Deadly Sins mobile game Knights in the Pocket before being added into the story proper.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Arden likes cute girls but has bad luck with them. The second Fanbook in particular reveals he was once refused by 10 girls in one day, an incident the Fanbook lists as his most embarrassing thing in his life. To make matters worse, he tends to oblivious to Deldrey who actually loves him despite her own reservations.
  • Height Angst: The second Fanbook lists down that Arden as a short 19 year old wants more height.
  • Oblivious to Love: He's oblivious to Deldrey's feelings for him especially when he's distracted by other cute girls.
  • Power Level: According to the second Fanbook, his level is 1320 with his individual stats being Power: 600, Strength: 420, and Spirit: 300.
  • Spell Blade: Arden's ability Vain revolves around imbuing weapons such as his arrows with basically a debuff effect.
  • Status Ailment: Arden's ability Vain is basically this in a non videogame setting. Those affected via being injured by weapons imbued with Arden's magic will need to expend a ton more magic energy in order to use their abilities. This means that powers that one can use like second nature will use up a lot more magic, and techniques that use a significant amount of magic won't even activate. Furthermore, the effect is further multiplied if one is injured by the magic imbued weapons multiple times more. Thus as exemplified when this ability was first shown, someone with really devastating magical abilities won't be able to muster up anything when shot by Arden's arrows especially when hit five times by him. While Vain seems powerful in this regard, it however only affects magic as it does nothing to physical capabilities.

Dawn Roar

Dawn Roar is an order of knights created by King Baltra Liones after the Seven Deadly Sins ran away for being framed for murder. They are basically the replacements for Sins. Like their predecessors originally were before, they are a faction that supposedly directly serves the king, completely independent from the Holy Knights. Despite this though, Dawn Roar has a nasty reputation for being a group that focuses primarily their targets.


    Tropes pertaining to Dawn Roar in general 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dawn_roar_preparing_to_fight_the_sins.png

  • Adaptation-Induced Plot Hole: In the first season of the anime, some events were changed from the manga and thus the three members that were killed by Dreyfus were Spared By Adaptation. In the second season however, these changes are completely ignored and not addressed at all with it being mentioned that these three were killed by Dreyfus. This is further shown when they appear as spirits through Denzel's ability Dead Man's Revenge, an ability that causes an opponent to be haunted by those they've killed.
  • Badass Crew: As the Seven Deadly Sins' replacements, they were required to be this.
  • Demoted to Extra: The A1 anime demotes their role in the kingdom infiltration arc due to changing some events.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Sans Slader and Simon, the three other members of Dawn Roar were killed offscreen by Dreyfus when he escaped from them and Howzer.
  • Exact Words: When Dawn Roar were dispatched to Ordan, they were ordered to take the head of the Armor Giant. To comply with that order and prevent a Mêlée à Trois, Gowther decapitated the Armor Giant's head and gave it to them. Since their orders were to only take the Armor Giant's head and not engage in full combat with the Sins, they left the Sins and the still standing Armor Giant alone.
  • Fantastically Indifferent: With the exception of Simon, the majority of Dawn Roar take the discovery that Meliodas, the captain of Seven Deadly Sins, is actually the small young boy-like character they meet among the group with very little surprise.
  • Mexican Standoff: Had a extremely long and epic one with the Armored Giant.
  • The Order: Dawn Roar is an order of knights made by King Baltra Liones to replace the Seven Deadly Sins after their supposed crime.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: When presented to what is the literal fulfillment of their orders of taking the Armor Giant's head, Dawn Roar leaves the Sins and a still standing Armor Giant alone.
  • Spared By Adaptation: Due to changes in the first season of the anime, the three that were killed by Dreyfus survive to see the celebrations. In the second season however, they are mentioned to have been killed by Dreyfus and even show among the spirits that haunt Dreyfus through Denzel's ability Dead Man's Revenge which causes an opponent to be haunted by those they've killed.

    Slader 

Slader

Voiced by: Shin-ichiro Miki (Japanese), Doug Erholtz (English), Jorge Roig Jr. (Latin American)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/u6ow47v.png

Slader is the captain of Dawn Roar. He is a knight that looks more like a horror movie slasher due to his Malevolent Masked Man and tattered shirt look. Adding to this thematic, Slader wields an enormous saw-blade, which he uses with gusto. Knows only one spell, which intimidates the target and stops it in its tracks.


  • Armor-Piercing Question: Gets hit by one from Gowther that makes him question whether or not he's really acting on the orders of King Baltra and even if the king is really sick.
    Gowther: Is that what the king said? Did he tell you all this while you were at his bedside?
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Slader learned the fighting style of his barbarian captors just by observing them.
  • Badass Gay: In an easy to miss scene during a confrontation between Gowther and some other Holy Knights, Slader is shown to be pretty much gay as he is seen passionately holding onto another man. He then proceeds to show that he is a badass as well as he whoops the knights for knocking away his companion and, in his own words, ruining his "precious day off". A Q&A from the first Fanbook further confirms this by saying that the guy was one of many Slader's boyfriends.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Slader's tattered but tight shirt leaves his abs exposed.
  • BFS: His sword is long as his body.
  • Beautiful All Along: He looks rather sinister with his mask on but when we see him without it, he is actually quite handsome.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Because King Baltra Liones rescued him from his barbarian captors, gave him a name, and a future, Slader swore his complete loyalty to him.
  • The Coats Are Off: Before beating two other Holy Knights who also ruined his "precious day off", he first takes off the coat he was wearing in addition to putting on his mask.
  • Has a Type: Sounding a bit like a gay version of Single Woman Seeks Good Man, Slader admits that he only reacts to good men according to to some extra pages in volume 13. As such, he found it shocking that someone like Gowther who he believed to be a criminal that betrayed the king at the time would make his heart race. Based on his "date" and further dialogue on the Gowther matter, he also apparently prefers the more Manly Gay types and Gowther being effeminate just confounds him more.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Upon being given an Armor-Piercing Question about King Baltra's health, Slader decides to stop fighting against the Sins and find out what really is happening in Liones.
  • Hockey Mask and Chainsaw: With his mask and saw-like sword, Slader looks like a medieval fantasy version of this trope.
  • Killing Intent: Slader is capable of intimidating opponents into complete submission via his ability called "Overpower" which he learned from his experiences with his former childhood captors.
  • Made a Slave: As far as he could remember, Slader had been kidnapped by barbarians at a young age and was treated by them more like a nameless dog than a human being.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: Slader with his human face metal mask.
  • The Paralyzer: Overpower can paralyze his opponents.
  • Power Level: According to the second Fanbook, his level is 2790 with his individual stats being Power: 980, Strength: 930, and Spirit: 880.
  • Raised by Orcs: When he was young, Slader was kidnapped and raised as a slave by some barbarians who were more than willing to kill him if he ever stepped out of line.
  • Serial Romeo: According to some extra pages in volume 13, he's this. He often gets heartbroken according to Jillian.
  • Serrated Blade of Pain: Slader carries a large sword that resembles a Japanese saw called a ryoba.
  • Shout-Out: When he dons his masks as a technique he yells "Make-up", an apparent nod to Sailor Moon.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name has been spelled as Threader and as Slater. The official spelling though is Slader.
  • Straight Gay: For the majority of the time, especially when serious in battle, Slader presents himself in a manner that for the most part paints him as nothing but straight. In fact, it's only when an easy to miss scene showing him passionately holding onto another man popped up that the idea that he's actually gay came to mind. That said though he does display more stereotypical Camp Gay mannerisms in more comedic and less serious situations.
  • Undying Loyalty: Slader towards King Baltra for saving him from his barbarian captors and for giving him a name. He is shaken when Gowther's question in chapter 69 makes him realize that he might not actually be following the king's wishes by fighting the Sins.
  • Verbal Tic: At times, Slader talks in a rather Camp Gay voice which is symbolized by a heart at the end of his sentences in the manga. Depending on the context what he's saying though, it's presented as either comedic or In Love with Your Carnage creepy.
  • What the Hell Are You?: Slader to Gowther in chapter 69 after finding out that the latter survived his neck being snapped.
  • Worthy Opponent: Slader considers the Seven Deadly Sins to be this to Dawn Roar.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/baltra_liones_full_appearance.png

Baltra Liones is the eleventh king of the kingdom of Liones. He was overthrown by the by the Holy Knights of his kingdom and is currently being held captive. He is the father of Margaret and Veronica, and the adopted father of Elizabeth. He possesses the precognitive ability Vision which aptly gives him visions of the future, albeit vague and limited ones.


  • Benevolent Mage Ruler: A benevolent ruler with a precognitive ability which he uses for the benefit of his people.
  • Cool Helmet: Baltra wore a horned helmet with an eye imprinted on its visor in his younger days.
  • Go and Sin No More: After the whole ordeal with the Holy Knights, he basically lets them go with a light punishment on account that the kingdom still needs its protectors despite what they've done.
  • The Good King: Baltra cared so much for his people's safety that he refused to make his Holy Knights be a part of the Holy War.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: Baltra has a tendency to strike friendship with people way younger than him as shown with Slader and Arthur. It's implied that he was this to the Sins too, as Gowther knew enough to question the order Slader was given. Though it's a bit of a flip given how old the sins are or are implied to be.
  • King On His Death Bed: The Holy Knights tried to cover up their coup by saying he was this. Later it appeared like he was really sick only for it to be revealed that he was just suffering from a simple stomach ulcer and Mistaken for Dying.
  • Lord Country: He shares his surname with the name of the kingdom he rules over.
  • Mistaken for Dying: Though the Holy Knights covered up their coup by saying he was sick and bedridden, it appeared that he really was afflicted with some extremely serious life threatening disease when he's encountered. Some extra pages in volume 13, and the second OVA which detail him being healed by Merlin in Camelot however reveal that he was just suffering from a simple stomach ulcer.
  • Overprotective Dad: He does not like Elizabeth being with Meliodas.
  • Papa Wolf: He deeply cares for his daughters. Best demonstrated when he once climbed a tree to save a young Elizabeth, a feat that he had never done before.
  • Parents in Distress: He gets held captive by the Holy Knights who overthrew him. In response, his daughter Elizabeth sought after the Seven Deadly Sins in order to save him and restore peace to the kingdom.
  • Power Level: He has a power level of 530. Despite his fragile, elderly appearance, this is well above a normal person. The second Fanbook later reveals his individual stats as Power: 120, Strength: 230, and Spirit: 180.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: He went along his knights in a battle against the barbarians.
  • Seers: Baltra has a power called "Vision" that allows him to see the future. Through it, he hoped to avoid the Holy War foretold in the prophecies. This power however has its limits. Baltra can only sense what would happen in the near future, and sometimes in the distant future, through vague words and visions. Also, it's only limited to what happens to and around him.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Early fan scanlations have his name spelled as Bartra. The official spelling though is Baltra.

    Veronica Liones 

Princess Veronica Liones

Voiced by: Hisako Kanemoto (Japanese), Abby Trott (English), Betzabe Jara (Latin American)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/veronica_anime.png

Veronica is the second princess of the kingdom of Liones. Though the Holy Knights overthrew her father, she decided to instead ally with them in order to prepare the kingdom for the foretold war.


  • Adaptation Distillation: Her introduction chapters were cut from the anime adaptation; changing how her scenes played out in the Vaizel Festival.
  • Antagonistic Offspring: She decided to ally with the Holy Knights against her father.
  • Anti-Mutiny: The basic gist of her going against her father was to help prepare for the foretold war rather than disarm the kingdom completely as her father wanted in hopes of avoiding said war.
  • Big Sister Instinct: She's very protective of her sister Elizabeth. In fact, she tells Guila that the reason she forgives her for almost killing her is because if given the opportunity Veronica would make the same decisions.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Has rather boyish short hair.
  • Disney Death: It was believed that she had died from her wounds when she shielded Elizabeth from Guila's attack, but it's later revealed that she's still alive albeit injured.
  • Faux Action Girl: Though she is initially set up like a warrior, Veronica unfortunately doesn't fare to well against some of the more powerful characters. After the first major arc is over, Veronica seems to be aware of her short comings and hires Guila, of all people, to train her in swordsmanship. Seems Guila is the only Holy Knight that would seriously train her and not just humor the princess. Griamore probably would have taken her seriously but he isn't a swordsman.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: She saves Elizabeth from one of Guila's land mines but ends up nearly dying from her wounds.
  • Inspector Javert: Due to whoever framed the Sins as well as various rumors, Elizabeth's sister, Veronica, steadfastly believes the Sins are manipulating Elizabeth for something. From what we've seen of the Sins' pasts however, it's obvious she's not getting the full story.
  • Lady and Knight: The lady to Griamore's knight.
  • Lord Country: She shares her surname with the name of the kingdom her family rules over.
  • Not So Different: Says this to Guila when the she expresses confusion that Veronica would be so willing to forgive her actions.
  • One of the Boys: She used to play sword fights with the boys which her father disliked.
  • Power Level: According to the second Fanbook, her level is 80 with her individual stats being Power: 0, Strength: 35, and Spirit: 45.
  • Rebellious Princess: She's rather a brash and stubborn princess, preferring to be more proactive than just simply being prim and proper.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something:
    • Rather than sit idly by for the prophesied war to come like a more lady-like princess, she decided to take action. That action unfortunately was siding with the Holy Knights who overthrew her father.
    • Beyond her training with Guila, she follows Guila when the later reports to Lord Denzel. She is in disguise, but her uncle sees through it quickly.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Veronica is a tomboy who sided with the Holy Knights while Margaret is known to be a gentle lady who sided with her father.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to both Elizabeth and Margaret's Girly Girl.
  • Tomboy Princess: She prefers swords and acting on the field rather than standing idly by.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Despite being a Tomboy Princess, her standard attire is a predominately pink jacket.
  • True Love's Kiss: She accidentally cures the revenant curse that turned Griamore into a child. In an attempt to console a child Griamore who was tearful because of what happened to Fraudrin, Veronica gives him an innocent kiss on his forehead. Unfortunately as neither Griamore nor Veronica knew this was the cure for the curse, he suddenly grew and burst out of his child-sized pajamas much to the two's surprise. This resulted in a naked Griamore over Veronica in bed, a situation that Guila quickly misunderstood and blasted Griamore away for upon entering the room after hearing the princess' screams.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: She greatly resembles her deceased aunt Nadja, Gowther's late love.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has violet hair.

This is because in reality, she was being held hostage so that Gilthunder would do Hendrickson's bidding.

    Nadja Liones 

Princess Nadja Liones

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nadja_liones.png

Nadja Liones is the elder sister of Baltra and Denzel who had died years prior. While exploring the ruins underneath Liones castle upon hearing about one of Baltra's premonitions, Nadja discovered Gowther. The two formed a bond and became romantically involved. However due to circumstances involving her illness, Gowther got accused of raping and killing her. It's this supposed crime that is labeled as Gowther's sin.


  • Cute Bookworm: Since she couldn't get out of the castle because of her illness, Nadja spent her days reading books. It's implied Gowther got his love for reading from her.

  • A Good Way to Die: Having met and fallen in love with Gowther, she felt that he had filled her short life with happiness thus she died with no regrets.
  • Ill Girl: She was a very ill girl plagued by a weak heart that tended to cause her to lose consciousness. Due to this, she wasn't allowed to venture too far away and was often cloistered with only books as her main company. Fortunately, she met Gowther who filled her life with happiness. Unfortunately, her illness got the best of her.
  • The Lost Lenore: To Gowther; he discarded his own heart rather than deal with the pain and loss her death caused him.
  • Not What It Looks Like: When Nadja died while making love with Gowther, he tried giving her his artificial heart that his creator the original Gowther made for him. Misinterpreting what she said about him and her having the same type of heart, he thought that replacing her stopped heart with his would revive her. Just as Gowther did this, some concerned guards who had heard Gowther's prior screams barged into the princess' room and came to a grisly sight. The scene of a naked Gowther above the naked corpse of the princess with her chest ripped wide open and blood everywhere was quickly misinterpreted as rape and murder.
  • Out with a Bang: Nadja died from her illness while making love with Gowther.
