–Marsilio to the Hero Faction members, Light Novel DX.4, Power.2


Marsilio is a member of the Hero Faction. He is the descendent of Marsilio Ficino.


Marsilio is described as a young man in a suit (with an gakuran, most likely incorporated in it).


Marsilio is a stubborn and resentful person, as he wanted revenge on Rias for the dissolution of the Hero Faction. He is also analytical and can be serene and can realize when he has lost.


Not much is known about Marsilio's past, other than that at some point before the series, he was persuaded by Cao Cao to join the Hero Faction.
