Korag Gildamesh (コラグ ジルダメシュ Koragu Jirudameshu): is the captain of Clover Kingdom's Black Bull squad of the Magic Knights and is considered the most destructive of all the squad captains. He was the lowest form of commoners there was, having been born and raised in the deepest land of the Forsaken Realm called Ketto City and cast there by the royals of the kingdom. His mastery in Break Magic allows him to destroy anything he's comes across making him known as the Ultimate Spear (ウルティマト スピアー Urutimato Supiaa). He and his squads' destructive behavior is frowned upon by the both the kingdom and the other Magic Knights squads that he is commonly referred to as the Screw-Up (スクルー-ウップ Sukuruu-Uppu) for all the missions that his squad has failed under his guidance. He is also the father of Juno Gildamesh..
Korag is a tall man with a muscular build. He has red messy shoulder-length hair which appears wavy and slicked back and has sharp, narrow black eyes with three scars across his left eye and a stubbly beard and his eyebrows are long but thin. His nose is heavily defined compared to most others. He has rough skin with a chiseled face. His eyes appear calm yet fatigued, showing his slacking attitude but has also became his main look of expression. His face is beginning to reveal his age as its starting to show wrinkles beneath his eyes. His muscular body shows other wise as its well refined and in tip top shape.
As someone who was born a commoner in the Forsaken Realm, he has no royal or noble blood in his veins. Because of this, Korag's appearance lacks any grandeur of high class. Instead his attire is rather torn and ragged, he always wears a long, black, high-collared and tattered cape over his shoulders, a white colored shirt which is only half buttoned, leaving part of his chest exposed. A large red sash is tied around his waist
around his waist is a simple belt. Korag also wear loose-fitting dark pants, complete with an armored waist-guard bearing plates similar to the ones on his shoulders, tucked inside simple boots. He also wears an armored gauntlet over his left arm which is his most preferred arm.
As the captain of the Black Bull squad, Korag wears his banner differently then his squad does. His black cloak serves as his own banner with the Black Bull insignia on his right side. Underneath his cloak he also has the insignia imprinted onto his armored waist guard.
Korag is a laid-back, easygoing and carefree individual, often acting in a spontaneous and unpredictable way. He has somewhat of a sluggish attitude, not prone to getting too worked up about anything or by anyone. He has somewhat of a playful mind, often likes to goof around whenever he gets the chance and also likes teasing people. He is usually always seen smiling or grinning even while in battle, revealing his cool demeanor and hardly shows any kind of worry or concern. He deals with his situations with a calm, relaxing and tolerant attitude, taking it easy as he approaches his problems. He dislikes formalities and has a straightforward mind, often acting in a unpredictable way and often tackles issues with a "hands on" approach and shows no concern about how other people feel about him or his actions and does it regardless.
Korag is a kind and friendly man despite the numerous stories told about him being a ruthless monster. As he is always greeting people he meets with a welcoming smile and addresses to people in a casual and pleasant tone. He can also be a laid-back and easygoing person, preferring to take his time rather then rushing into a fight. His friendly nature means he will not purposely seek to harm others nor will he do so due to orders he have been given. He is not cruel to his subordinates, nor does he rule over his squad members with fear to gain respect but is rather a compassionate man who leads his squad members with benevolence, looking after them and encouraging or inspiring them. It is indicative that Korag prefers others to see him as someone who cares little about his wellbeing since he does not care about social status or recognition and does not really care about what other people say or think about his squad and will take any belittling and mockery directed at them without a care, as he acts nonchalant and jokingly submissive, preferring to laugh off even dire situations as opposed to taking direct conflict. His carefree nature ends however when those under his leadership or protection are threatened. Despite being one of the strongest and oldest captains, Korag retains a level of humility and is not overly arrogant about his strength.
He has a fun-loving, partying nature and cheerful personality where he is almost always seen partying, gambling and drinking alcoholic beverages whenever he feels like it, as the captains favorite pastimes are attending and hosting drinking parties at local bars and gambling at casinos. He desires to seek fun activities rather then be bored sitting around at a desk doing paper work, or any other subjects that require him to sit around. This will lead to him sneaking out of his own headquarters and go looking for something he can do for fun even during a time of crisis. An action of which irritates his squad members. Korag has an extreme obsession over alcohol. So much so that is he is always seen drinking no matter where he is. He loves to drink different types of alcohol, and is particularly fond of sake almost to the degree that he will do anything for alcohol. When travelling around, he constantly carries around bottles of booze and drink straight from the bottle. Due to his love for drinking, Korag loathes being deprived of alcohol, evident when Alana imposed temperance on him as punishment due to his reckless behavior, to which he responds by crying and begging for forgiveness. One of his favorite vices is gambling, as his first instinct to any wages he acquires is to gamble it. Despite how often and how irresponsibly he gambles, he is very bad at it, losing almost all his wages in one sitting and any amount he actually wins, is immediately spent on booze for celebrating his victory.
Korag shows extreme dislike for all the rules and laws that the Magic Knights try to impose on the squads, believing that they limit his freedom to do whatever he wants and therefore blatantly ignores them. He also believes that the skills and Magic of his squad members will not be able to grow if he makes them confined to the rules of the Magic Knights therefore gives them the freedom to do whatever they wish to do as he frequently attempts to balance reprimands from the Magic Knights and the eccentricity of his squad.
In spite of being a squad captain, Korag doesn't take his duties very seriously. While he can be serious when the need arises such as when it comes to his role of being captain or personal matters when it comes to loyalty, Korag would rather shirking his captain's duties as he drinks constantly, sometimes sleeps on the job, and tries as much as he can to have other people do his work for him. He also doesn't appear to take conflicts with others seriously either, such as when his trusted vice captain Edgar Nostradamus losses him temper and angrily yells at him and comically pinches and stretches out his cheeks for his disregard for his duties only to have him respond by sticking his tongue out at him while hes still pinching and stretching his cheeks. This attitude tends to get on his squad's nerves, contrasting their focus on personal and serious matters,
Korag is shown to have an extreme perverted nature and is somewhat of a womanizer, constantly flirting with any attractive woman he sees and has the tendency to be more outwardly about it when he is heavily drunk. He is especially attracted to girls with large breasts. Despite numerous rejections however, he is still undeterred in his exploits as no attractive woman is spared from his amorous desires with Celestia Lucifuge and Elizabeth Roselei being two of his usual targets for harassment.
he also prefers instilling tough loves to his subordinates by giving them dangerous missions. He believes that it is the best way for them to overcome their limits and grow stronger. He also does not discriminate people according to their social status or circumstances.
Despite these kind and friendly gestures Korag shows, he is also a hot head, who could be easily enraged by even the smallest thing. Something he learned from the previous captain. He also tends to immediately go straight for a more physical solution to any problems or confrontations and has a penchant for intimidation whether he uses threatening words or physically hurts his target to get his point across.
He shows no sympathy in killing his foes he thinks are unnecessaryDue to his years of He's developed a ruthless fighting sense that sometimes kicks in randomly without any warning during a challenging battle. Once that happens Korag will go on a violent rampage towards his target. While in this state, he will have very little self control over himself and will destroy everything in his path to defeat his target. Including his allies. Any attempt in reasoning with him is useless for he will not hear their words.
Korag was born deep in the Forsaken Realm in a town named Ketto City that's been cast away by the Royals to the very edge of Clover Kingdom far away from any kind of civilization. A city lawlessness where the people live without proper medical care or magic knights to bring order to the town making it run rabid with chaos and diseases.
As the first child born into this hellish city, the moment Korag was born, the villagers (including his own parents) fought over him to serve as their meal ticket which lead to an all out bloodshed which eventually lead to the death of his parents.
