You are the hated dragon that soiled my little sister Nyx. It would be better if you disappeared into the darkness.

–Erebus to Issei Hyoudou, True Volume 3, Life.4 As the Deterrence for the World —AxA—


Erebus is the Primordial God of Darkness and the older brother of Nyx in Greek mythology and one of the creators of Thanatos, Hypnos, and Oneiroi. Erebus and his sister joined Hades and the Alliance of Hell to eliminate the DxD team, Longinus users, chief-gods of each mythology, and Ajuka Beelzebub.


Erebus is a handsome young man appearing in his mid-twenties with black hair. He wears a black cloak and his body gives out dark aura. During the battle, He was shown to be wearing a light-black armor.


Erebus is shown to be calm and collected in person and deeply care for his sister and later became enraged when she was defeated by Issei. He was also shown to be troublemaker to those who refused to join the Alliance of Hell such as King Enma, who refused to join them and attack the shrines that worships Enma.


In the past, Erebus and his sister Nyx created Thanatos, Hypnos, and Oneiroi. At some point, they received a invitation by Hades to join the Alliance of Hell.
