|“||I just believe in my own body, that’s all.||”|
–Sairaorg to Issei during their sparring match, Volume 9, Life 1
Sairaorg Bael is the next heir of the Bael Clan. He is the oldest son of Lord Bael and the only child of his first wife Misla Bael, the older half-brother of Magdaran Bael, and the cousin of Rias Gremory and Sirzechs Lucifer. He was known as the strongest young Devil before being beaten by Issei.
His peerage consists of Devils that are scorned by other Devils.
Sairaorg is a handsome young man with black hair and violet eyes. He is very tall and has a muscular build due to the extreme training he has done. His height is [194 cm] and body weight is [135 kg].
Sairaorg has a noble and calm personality and greatly respects his opponents. He also likes to fight strong people, to the point that Rias Gremory, his own cousin, called him a battle maniac. He is shown to be a kind-hearted and compassionate person and has a very straightforward personality. He even shows unconditional kindness to his estranged half brother. Sairaorg is extremely dedicated to fulfilling his dream to create an Underworld where any Devils regardless of their background can make their dream come true as shown in his unbreakable determination in protecting Auros Academy, which is an important stepping stone to his dream, from Grendel's rampage. Sairaorg takes great pride in his strength and the fact that he trained for it; this is shown when he felt insulted by Bedeze Abaddon's offer to give him a King Piece.
He possesses a great deal of pride and honor as both an heir and warrior, though he does not possess the arrogance that his clan possesses. He is very mature and composed enough to handle things, although he and his mother have been shunned from the rest of his clan due to the abuse that he received from his father and other clan members (not including Zekram Bael).
Born as the eldest son of the Bael Clan, Sairaorg didn’t inherit the Bael's trademark Power of Destruction that Rias and her brother inherited from their mother, who came from the Bael Clan. Because of this, his younger half-brother Magdaran Bael was appointed to become the next heir of the Bael Clan. Sairaorg and his mother, Misla Bael, were then shunned and scorned by the Bael Clan, including his very own father, to the point of being sent to the countryside of the Bael territory. During his time there, Sairaorg was constantly bullied by other Low and Middle-Class Devils, until Misla advised him to become strong in different ways. Sairaorg then started training his body to its utmost limits to become powerful and due to this, he defeated his younger half-brother, which made him the next heir of the Bael Clan. Sairaorg desires to become Satan to prove his worth even with his lack of special demonic powers.
Sometime before the series, Sairaorg found Regulus, the Lion King, sealed in the Longinus, Regulus Nemea after its possessor died and it materialized itself. Sairaorg then tamed Regulus and made it his servant through 7 Pawn Evil Pieces.
Sairoarg appears in Volume 5 as one of the six young Devils chosen for the Young Devils Gathering and stopped Seekvaira Agares and Zephyrdor Glasya-Labolas who were arguing, knocking Zephyrdor out and convincing Seekvaira to stand down. He later faces Zephyrdor in a Rating Game which he and his team overpowered Zephydor's team and won by dominating and crushing Zephydor's will to fight.
He reappears in Volume 6 alongside his Queen, Kuisha Abaddon, after finishing his interview on the television at the Underworld for the Young Devils Gathering, greeting Rias and her peerage who were on their way for the same interview and leaving after telling Rias that he wants to fight them with pure power only.
In Volume 9, he has a sparring match with Issei while his hands and legs are on a heavy seal. Near the end of Volume 9, he is seen talking with Seekvaira who was complaining about Issei's new powers and that the current Satans favor him but Sairaorg, who was pleased by the event, ignored her.
In Volume 10, Sairaorg faces Rias in their Rating Game, during which he eliminated Yuuto Kiba, Xenovia, and Rossweisse in the games, facing Issei in the final round. While initially refusing to use the Balance Breaker of his Longinus, Regulus Nemea, he eventually used it after persuasion from Issei. In his Balance Breaker form, Sairaorg's strength and speed increased greatly to the point where he easily shattered Issei's Scale Mail while in Rook mode. Despite this, he ultimately lost to Issei after the latter manages to achieve his Cardinal Crimson Promotion in their battle, fighting Sairaorg in a fist fight which Sairaorg lost after losing consciousness.
In Volume 12, Sairaorg goes to the Gremory territory to check on Rias and is the one responsible for helping her regain her composure after Issei's "death". He later fought against Heracles and easily defeated him. He and the Gremory Team then welcome Issei who came back from the Dimensional Gap, witnessing Vali Lucifer and Pluto's fight, which Vali won dominantly as Issei and Cao Cao fight one-on-one in a rematch. After Issei defeats Cao Cao, Sairaorg proclaims that he shall be the one to defeat Issei.
Sairaorg and his peerage helped in the experience day for the Auros Academy built in the Underworld in Volume 17. When Qlippoth launched their attack, Sairaorg and his peerage first defended the floating island Agreas then helped in the defense of Auros after the appearance of the legendary Evil Dragons Grendel and Ladon. He and Issei engaged in a fight against Grendel and was able to overwhelm him before Walburga sneakily attacked Sairaorg. Even with the increased defense because of Regulus Nemea's Balance Breaker, Sairaorg was still heavily injured from the attack of the Holy Cross user. Grendel used this chance to beat Sairaorg up but he persevered and with his and Issei's combined effort, they were able to defeat Grendel and have Koneko Toujou seal his soul inside a jewel from Issei's armor.
In Volume 21, Sairaorg came to the Bael castle to help his younger brother Magdaran and assist Saji against Bedeze Abaddon who wanted to push the blame of the corruption of the Rating Game to the Bael clan. Sairaorg fights Bedeze as he promises to protect his younger brother and activates his Breakdown the Beast, easily overpowering Bedeze's Hole ability, he defeats Bedeze who is then taken away by Roygun Belphegor, another Rating Game competitor who came to stop Bedeze. When Sairaorg heard news of Trihexa heading to Japan, he and his peerage head to the human world to assist their side in the war against Qlippoth.
In Volume 22, Sairaorg attended Rias's graduation ceremony, while telling Issei to act formally since he is now a High-class devil.
Red Dragon Emperor of the Blazing Truth × White Dragon Emperor of the Morning Star: The True Dragon(s) of the Kuoh AcademyEdit
Sairaorg then participated in the opening ceremony of the Azazel Cup, where he became pleased at Issei's arrival.
Sairaorg reappeared in Volume DX.4, participating in the collaboration show of Oppai Dragon as Leonis Rex and assisted Issei and Kiba’s fight against Bova as Evil Dragon General Bavo. After the show, Sairaorg took part in the show regarding the Azazel-Cup and he received hateful comments from audience because they accused him of using the King Piece to increase his strength and believes that he protected the Bael Clan was the proof of that but Sairaorg remained calm of their abuse and was escorted away by his escorts and asked them to watch his future matches. Sairaorg went to training at the remote part of the park and noticed Issei offering to run with him, shocking Sairaorg. Issei apologized to Sairaorg for not helping stand up to the audience because his position as the king held him back but Sairaorg cheerfully told him that he’s thankful for his gesture. He and Issei saw Cao Cao appeared and greeted them, Sairaorg gave a cold stare at Cao Cao and as they exchange glares Cao Cao told him he’s looking forward to their match and Sairaorg smiled told him he’ll see him at the arena.
At the day of Sairaorg’s team against Cao Cao’s team at the floating city of Agares, Sairaorg watch as Cao Cao’s queen Guan Yu arrives at the arena and asked if plans to wield his weapon with Cao Cao again which Guan Yu told him that he’s remembering his old days. Before their match, Cao Cao spoke to Sairaorg because he has offered to exchange words with him. Cao Cao says he will be striving towards his victory and he will be waiting for Sairaorg in the center of the match which Sairaorg asked if wants to fight him one on one match and Cao Cao says he’s including his Longinus. Cao Cao believes that Sairaorg is suspicious about their duel but he’s swearing on the person he’s looking to fight which Sairaorg believes if it’s either Indra or his ancestor but Cao Cao revealed he’s swearing upon Issei’s name, shocking Sairaorg and everyone in the audience. Sairaorg unleashed his fighting aura and says he will defeat Cao Cao at the center of the match.
In the beginning of the match, he encountered Heracles who requested a rematch against Sairaorg to avenge his defeat during their first encounter, to which Sairaorg agreed. Heracles told Sairaorg that he was there on his own volition and not on Cao Cao's orders, to which Sairaorg asked if Cao Cao would have predicted that as Sairaorg began to enjoy the fight. Realizing that they were evenly matched, Sairaorg asked Regulus for help as Regulus turned into Balance Breaker armor. Heracles became ecstatic to fight an armored Sairaorg as he was previously defeated by armorless Sairaorg like an idiot, to which Sairaorg responded by noting that both of them trained but that Heracles might have trained more then Sairaorg himself. Sairaorg then gained the advantage as Heracles's attacks could not penetrate Sairaorg's armor and Heracles received a brutal combo attack from Sairaorg which left him on the ground. Heracles then pulled out the the trading cards that the children from the kindergarten gave him as he stated that those cards would give him strength and revealed his anger at the fact that Sairaorg was accused of being a fake as he stated that there is no way that a punching brute like Sairaorg would be capable of using a power item. As their fight resumed, Heracles attacks began to penetrate Sairaorg's defense as Heracles destroyed the right shoulder armor and blood started leaking from Sairaorg's body. Nevertheless, Sairaorg retaliated with punches and kicks, as he landed a well-aimed punch filled with power straight into Heracles’s face, who was retired as Sairaorg thanked him and stated that he will take pride in fighting him again.
After that, Sairaorg went to the center of the field to confront Cao Cao, who stated that he wanted to fight Sairaorg at his full strength to which Sairaorg replied that his fight with Heracles prepared him for this fight. Cao Cao stated that he came up with numerous strategies to win against Sairaorg without fighting him head on but discarded them as he considered them worthless when compared to the idea of fighting the Sairaorg one-on-one. Their battle began with Cao Cao sending several jabs at Sairaorg, who dodge them as Sairaorg tried to counterattack and penetrate Cao Cao's defense but Cao Cao jumped backward as he managed to figure out Sairaorg's effective attack range. Both of them tried to land the first hit while dodging each others' ranged attacks, with Sairaorg evading Cao Cao's holy waves and Cao Cao keeping his distance from pressure waves created by Sairaorg's punches. Cao Cao activated his Balance Breaker but instead of summoning the Seven Treasures, he increased the holy power and speed of the spear, as Cao Cao managed to stab Sairaorg and significantly damage his armor. To counter Cao Cao's new technique, Sairaorg unleashed his Breakdown the Beast armor form and began to counter-attack but none of his attacks could reach Cao Cao who continued to dodge them but he received damage from the aftershock of Sairaorg's attacks. As the effects of Breakdown the Beast started to wear down Sairaorg, Cao Cao used that to counter Sairaorg's punch by piercing Sairaorg's shoulder as Cao Cao continued to send jabs which forced Sairaorg on the defensive. However, Cao Cao himself would begin to tire as Sairaorg began to catch up to his speed. Cao Cao was able to stab Sairaorg’s side but that attack left him open for Sairaorg's own attack as Cao Cao tried to dodge but was disrupted by Sairaorg's aura, which allowed Sairaorg to land a punch on Cao Cao. Unfortunately, Cao Cao was able to block the attack with his spear. As he rose from the ground, Cao Cao admonished the Devils who were accusing Sairaorg of being a fraud by pointing out that Sairaorg is cornering the Holy Spear which all Devils fear. When asked by Sairaorg on why did he say that, Cao Cao responded that he doesn't like that a person forcing him into a corner, whether it be Sairaorg or Issei, is being looked down upon as they are Cao Cao's rivals. As they resumed their fight, Sairaorg's armor was completely destroyed and Regulus was retired, while due to a lack of stamina, Cao Cao was unable to maintain his Balance Breaker. As they continued their fight while both being exhausted, the time limit was finally reached. Cao Cao's team was declared the victor due to having more points then Sairaorg's team.
In Volume 24, Sairaorg had to deal with some unidentified Devils who are rioting in various territories. He later contacted Rias to be careful should she meet a similar situation. On the day of Rias' match with Vali, Sairaorg wanted to assist his comrades in guarding the stadium but the mysterious Devils were causing trouble in the areas under his jurisdiction so he couldn’t afford to spare any assistance.
In Volume 25, Sairaorg and his team were invited to the Hyoudou Residence to celebrate. After Issei talks with Vali, Sairaorg steps in saying that Vali isn’t the only one who wants to fight Issei.
Sairaorg reappeared in True Volume 2, in the dream of Issei in the wedding ceremony of him marrying his brides, with Sairaorg calling Issei and Rias a perfect couple. In the Underworld, Sairaorg did an evening collaboration of his Leonis Rex show with Issei and after finishing it, he and Issei talk about when he received a fan letter from a fan from the Netherworld, which embarrasses Issei. They begin to talk about the upcoming matches and Sairaorg telling them that his match is the second and the first is the match between the two Hindu gods and as Issei is about to give his information, Sairaorg stopped him because they are rivals in the tournament. When Rias and Riser arrived, they begun to talk about Team Shooting Star having a low-class devil and a magician in the team and how their leader awakened his Sacred Gear several years ago and mastered it. He noted that Ruval’s team has a Longinus user, which he considered an omen, and Ravel became curious until Sairaorg changed the subject. Sairaorg then spoke to Issei and Rias about their upcoming match against each other and revealed that they don’t plan to go easy on each other. Sairaorg wishes to clash against Ouryuu, Roygun, Grayfia, Yuuto, Crom, and Vasco and he encourages Issei and Rias not to lose, which annoys Riser that he doesn’t receive encouragement.
In the Azazel Cup, Sairaorg and his team began their match against Team Shooting Star and he equipped his lion armor to fight. After arriving at the island where the opposing team is, Sairaorg faced off against Shooting Star and evaded punches with his fist, but his armor was destroyed after being impaled by Shooting Star’s sword. Sairaorg spoke to Shooting Star about their similarities and began to chant to his Breakdown The Beast armor and was still pierced by Shooting Star’s sword, but was unharmed. He repelled the aura bullets by enveloping his fist with touki and managed to land a powerful punch to Shooting Star’s stomach, which his opponent wanted to have a similar fight like Sairaorg did with Issei, where he felt delighted. After Shooting Star started to lose aura from his sword, rifle, and his stamina being depleted, Sairaorg delivered his powerful punch to Shooting Star’s face that causes him to retire. Shooting Star asked Sairaorg if he can become like him and Issei, which Sairaorg praises him for giving a great fight.
Powers & AbilitiesEditImmense Strength: Sairaorg's physical prowess, which he has spent his life cultivating has proven to be his greatest weapon. He overpowered Zephyrdor in their fight in the Youth Tournament, breaking through his defensive magic circles and easily defeated him using one punch. In his initial sparring match with Issei, he could crack his scale mail armor despite missing a direct punch and cracked his armor after promoting to Rook. During his fight against Kiba, Xenovia, and Rossweisse, Sairaorg's power combined with Touki, increased to the point that he was able to cause a massive earthquake that devastated the entire field of the Rating Game. In fact, he has proven several times to be able to cause destruction using the aftershocks of his attacks as shown when he destroyed a building behind Heracles from his punch. In DX.4, it is mentioned that even Ultimate-Class Devils have gone down from his punch and even received praise from Shiva who described it as genuine "destruction". Ddraig stated that in Breakdown the Beast form, Sairaorg's punches are equivalent to Issei's Crimson Blaster. In True Volume 1, it was stated by Issei that his power either equals or surpasses Satan-class. Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: He is a master of hand-to-hand combat, having practiced martial arts for a long time to discover power different from that of demonic power. Saiaorg can overwhelm and defeat several devils from the Old Satan Faction, consisting of middle-class devils and higher. He could overwhelm Issei several times wearing his Scale Mail armor during their sparring match and Youth Tournament. In Volume 12, Sairaorg could knock down Heracles, using a small amount of force and destroyed the building behind him in the process. He could later fight and overpower the 3rd Ranked in the Rating Game Bedeze using Regulus Rey Leather Rex Imperial Purpure, whose position was said to be immovable, breaking through his Hole and shaking the entire Bael Castle. His combat prowess is enhanced through the usage of his touki. In DX.4, he could fight against Cao Cao, who is stated to be a peerless prodigy that wields the True Longinus. In Volume 25, his fists were said to equal Satan-Class Devils and reached even the Gods in the Azazel Cup. Touki (闘気, Fighting Spirit): Through his years of intense training, Sairaorg could attain control of his base of life, granting him enormous touki to further strengthen his power. Using touki, his offense, defense, and speed are increased drastically to the point of causing an earthquake. In fact, his life-force was powerful enough to the point where his right arm remained after it was cut off by Durandal instead of vanishing like a normal devil. Due to his immense life force, Sairaorg can use Breakdown the Beast for a short period of time without it endangering his life.
Lion Tamer: While Sairaorg has not shown it, he attributes Regulus being tamed due to the ability of the Vapula clan from which his mother, Misla Bael, came from.Immense Durability: Aside from just his strength, Sairaorg's second greatest trait his durability, which surpass common sense due to him training himself to make up for not inheriting the Power of Destruction granting him extraordinary durability. He was durable enough to withstand a punch from Issei in his Scale Mail (enhanced using Rook trait), Yuuto's Holy Demonic Sword, Rossweisse's Norse Magic, aura waves from Xenovia's Durandal, Heracles' Balance Breaker head-on with minor injuries. He managed to survive being brutally crushed by Grendal after being first burned by the Incinerate Anthem despite it being most effective against devils. In Volume 21, he withstood his own punch in Balance Breaker after Bedeze redirected it using his Hole, then withstood the aftereffects of using Breakdown the Beast, but recovered enough to join the fight against Trihexa. In DX4, he could endure stabs from the High-Tier Longinus, True Longinus despite being the most effective spear against Devils; in True Volume 2, he endured blasts from Shooting Star's Longinus, Star Buster Star Blaster that blew away Gods and deflected shots after activating Breakdown the Beast and withstood slashes from him without any difficulty. Immense Speed: Due to his extreme training, he has attained God-like speed that is equivalent if not faster than that of Yuuto Kiba. When using his Breakdown the Beast, Sairaorg becomes faster than him.
Flight: Being a Devil, Sairaorg can fly using his wings.
EquipmentEditRegulus Nemea (獅子王の戦斧, Regurusu Nemea): One of the 13 Longinus, it takes the form of a great battleaxe, which holds the spirit of a Nemean Lion, Regulus, the Lion King. The Regulus Nemea is able to materialize itself into the form of a huge golden lion with a jewel on its forehead. While he isn't the official wielder of the Regulus Nemea, Sairaorg can combine with Regulus in order to use Balance Breaker.
- Regulus Rey Leather Rex (獅子王の剛皮, Regurusu Rei Rezā Rekkusu): Sairaorg's Sub-Species Balance Breaker, which creates a golden lion armor and further augments his offense and defense, while channeling the earth-breaking power of Regulus Nemea through his fists. When Sairaorg used it in Volume 10 along with his Touki, his strength increased so much that he could to overpower Issei in his Welsh Draconic Rook, then fought on par with him in his Cardinal Crimson Promotion during the final match of the Rating Game.
- Regulus Rey Leather Rex Imperial Purpure (獅子王の紫金剛皮・覇獣式, Regurusu Rei Rezā Rekkusu Inperiaru Pāpyua): Regulus Nemea's Breakdown the Beast, its own version of the Juggernaut Drive.
