Heracles is a two-meters tall man with a well-built body and has shoulder-length gray hair. He wears what appears to be an attire of a Japanese school uniform (more specifically, the gakuran uniform generally worn by Japanese schoolboys in the fall), covered by what could possibly to be Greek-inspired armor.
Heracles is shown to be arrogant, overconfident, brutal, stubborn, assertive, and pugnacious. Heracles loves battles and takes great pride and confidence in his name and his skills. He often has a tendency to look down upon his opponents, as shown when he claimed that a "defect" like Sairaorg cannot possibly defeat him just because Sairaorg can't use any special demonic powers. He also has no qualms in employing dirty tricks to defeat his opponents like when he attacked a bus with children in it, all in order to defeat the Sitri group.
Not much is known about Heracles' past, other than that at some point before the series, he was persuaded by Cao Cao to join the Hero Faction.
In Volume 12, Heracles fought against Sona Sitri and her peerage, defeating them by using the children of the Underworld as hostages. He later fought against Sairaorg Bael, looking down upon Sairaorg for not having any special demonic powers. However, he was outclassed by Sairaorg and later defeated after he abandons the Chaos Break doping and tried to face Sairaorg head-on. He was then captured by the Devils and Fallen Angels and was taken to be interrogated.

Heracles reappeared in Volume DX.4, after joining Cao Cao’s team for the Azazel Cup. Heracles was working as a guard for the Underworld’s kindergarten after the Monster Crisis incident with Cao Cao paying him a visit and apologized to him for coming to his work. Heracles felt miserable after he showed Cao Cao waves his hand at the child and working as a kindergarten guard because of his incredible strength. Heracles wondered if Cao Cao came to see him because of the Rating Game which Cao Cao says that’s one of them and other is to see him, which Heracles noticed how much Cao Cao changed with him returning that he also changed. Heracles and Cao Cao travel to the Vatican to visit Jeanne who became a waitress of the Catholic Church after her capture in the Monster Crisis incident. They sat on a dining table and ordered pasta to eat after Jeanne continued to work. After she finished her work, Heracles watched the conversation between Cao Cao and Jeanne until his fellow team members Connla and Marsillio arrived when they brought Georg who returned from the Realm of the Dead, shocking Heracles and Jeanne. Heracles greeted his other fellow team member Perseus by calling him his nickname Pe, which he scolds him for calling him that nickname.
The group starts talking about Sairaorg and his team members, Heracles became bored and asked Cao Cao if he dodges all of Sairaorg’s attacks, Cao Cao noted that Sairaorg’s power is equivalent to Issei and is greater than Vali. Heracles recalls how painful Sairaorg’s punches was after he was defeated by him and angrily caught Perseus laughing at him after he heard the story for the tenth time. At the floating city of Agreas, Heracles arrived together with his team for their match against Sairaorg and his team at the arena and exchange glares at each other.
When the match started, Heracles stepped in front of Sairaorg and greeted him. He recalls the punch he received from Sairaorg in their last fight in the Monster Incident and considered it a pain that’s a beyond comprehension and begins preparing his fight against him. Heracles leaped towards Sairaorg and successfully punched him in the face which creates an enormous explosion from the result of his Sacred Gear. Sairaorg, however, used the smoke from the explosion to hide and filled his fist with aura to punch Heracles’s face as the two begin to fight each other, during the fight, Heracles revealed he’s acting on his own accord without Cao Cao’s order. As Sairaorg activates his Balance Breaker, Heracles begins to dodge his every punch but was receiving bruise due to the destructive power from Sairaorg’s punches. Although Heracles’s attacks and explosion managed to hit Sairaorg, he didn’t suffer much damage because of his armor and Heracles began to punch in the abdomen and kicked his face without any mercy which causes him to be enveloped in retire light. As he was retiring, Heracles heard the cries from the children who were supporting him and told him not to call him Oji-san and stands up. He shows the trading cards that the children gave to him with one being a rare card, later he put them back into his pocket and resumed his fight with Sairaorg. During the fight, Heracles managed to damage Sairaorg’s armor and destroyed the right shoulder of the armor in the progress. But despite damaging him, Sairaorg continued to send punches and kicks towards Heracles and eventually defeating him and praising for inheriting the spirit of Hercules and wishes to fight him again.
Heracles and the team became the victor of the match due to them having more points than Sairaorg’s team.
