Ladora Buné is Sairaorg's Rook from the House of Buné, one of the extinct families from the 72 Pillars that tames Dragons.


Ladora has the appearance of a tall and lanky man with dark green hair and red eyes.

In his Dragon form, he is an average sized Western Dragon with black scales.


Ladora is very loyal to Sairaorg and follows his orders absolutely. He, however, is shown to be somewhat arrogant as he looked down on Gasper.


Not much is known about Ladora's history, other than at some point before the series, he joined Sairaorg's peerage. However, he was likely shunned by the other Devils given his mixed heritage as well as his being a descendant of an extinct household from the 72 Pillars.
