I am the Great Perseus! I do enjoy a fair fight!

–Perseus to Beluga Furcas, Light Novel DX.4, Power MAX vs Technic MAX


Perseus is the former executive of the Hero Faction. He carries the spirit of the Hero of Greece Perseus.


Perseus is a young man with neat brown hair. He wears what could possibly to be Greek inspired armor, with a Japanese school uniform (specifically the gakuran worn by Japanese schoolboys in the fall) most likely underneath.


Perseus is said to be the person with the most loyalty to Cao Cao, while also having differing views on him (with it being one of the reasons why he retired from the Hero Faction), with him also possessing a polite, well-mannered man. He has also referred to Jeanne as 'onee-san'.


Not much is known about Perseus' past, other than that at some point before the series, he was persuaded by Cao Cao to join the Hero Faction and before the Kyoto Incident, he decided to retire from the Hero Faction.

Aegis Mineralization (蛇の王妃による死の勅令イージス・ミネラリゼーション, Ījisu Minerarizēshon) also known as Order of Death from the Snake Queen, is Perseus' Sacred Gear, which has the ability to fire beams of light that turn people to stone.[2]
