|“||It’s our first meeting. Your Eminence Vasco Strada, I am the current head of the House of Gremory.||”|
Zeoticus has the appearance of a middle-aged, handsome looking man with long crimson hair that is tied in a loose ponytail with a black hairband. He has bright blue eyes just like his two children, Sirzechs and Rias Gremory. He also has a short and red beard or stubble.
Coming from the Gremory Clan that has extraordinary affection, Zeoticus has demonstrated an extremely kind disposition. He is similar to his son Sirzechs in that he is laid back and has a playful side, as he likes dressing up as his clan's mascot "Gomorin" and playing the part. Also like Sirzechs, his antics get him into trouble with his wife Venelana and he becomes frightened when she catches him in the act of fooling around.
Little is known of Zeoticus's past, except that he married Venelana Bael and eventually fathered two children: Sirzechs and Rias. Dueing the Devil Civil War, he and his clan joined the Anti-Satan Faction in order to stop the Satan clans from restarting the Great War. When Sirzechs became the Satan, "Lucifer" and lost his right to become the Head of the Gremory Clan, Zeoticus made an arrangement with the Phenex Clan for his daughter to marry Riser Phenex at some point before the series. At some point, he honed his cooking skills in the human world.
