Indra is the King of the Gods and Lord of Heaven in Hindu mythology. He is also the God of War, Storms, and Rainfall.
Indra has the appearance of a man with a buzz-cut hairstyle with greenish brown hair color and lavender eyes. He wears circular sunglasses, an aloha shirt, and has a jewel around his neck when in his leisure. In the anime, he has the vermillion mark on his forehead. His height is 195 cm [6 feet 3 inches].
In the Azazel Cup, he wore a Buddha armor during his match against Mahabali.
Indra has a sarcastic personality. He is also very arrogant, as he openly threatened to eliminate Issei in front of Azazel, he also stated that that the only ones who can use the name of "Heaven" is his own religion (referring to himself), his ability to see, read, and determine an individual's true intentions and colors are the reason why he does not easily trust others particularly the leaders of the Three Factions. Many fears him and untrustworthy towards him, particularly Azazel. While Sun Wukong claims that Indra doesn't harbor any evil intentions within him, his actions of supporting the Khaos Brigade, specifically the Hero Faction from the background makes this a very doubtful statement. Although after Cao Cao's defeat, Indra mentioned that the real situation was the opposite of what it seemed, claiming that it was the Hero Faction that was manipulating him and the other Gods (mainly those who represents the netherworld, death, darkness, evil, malevolence, etc.) from the shadows, all this time. However, it is later revealed that this was because of Indra's agenda as he was preparing to wage war against Shiva, the God of Destruction.
Despite being a God of War and an arrogant and sarcastic god who only thinks of war, he is shown to be quiet benevolent, as he dislikes chaos nor tolerates those who have evil deeds. This was shown when he cooperates with the Three Factions and other myth factions to deal with the Khaos Brigade and sending Sun Wukong countless times to fend off the organization and to punish Cao Cao, despite his support towards the Hero Faction from behind. He is noted to enjoy watching good battles as Apollon mentioned that Indra was enjoying watching Issei’s and Vali’s matches in the international Rating Game. He also is shown to be stoic and patient yet, a bit childish of waging war against Shiva. As he notes that he will patiently wait to fight Shiva and let things go to according to Shiva's and Ajuka's plans and will try to attain victory in the Azazel Cup instead.
Indra is the Lord of Heaven that has defeated several strong opponents such as the Evil Dragon King Vritra, which ended with his soul being split and sealed into multiple Sacred Gears. At some point in the past, Indra waged war against the Asuras which ended with Indra killing their King, Virochana. At some close point in the past also, after Sun Wukong's accession as a Buddha, shortly when the Khaos Brigade began their rampaging around the world, he sends Sun Wukong countless times to fend off the organization. Indra had also previously made contact with Cao Cao before the latter's creation of the Hero Faction, but still keeps an eye of him. After the Three Faction's Alliance treaty, he along with the other major gods of every mythology pledge an Alliance with the Three Factions to deal with the Khaos Brigade.
