He is intrepid and arrogant, symbolized by destruction, and the lord of the Gladiator class. He acts on anything without reserve and can even be violent due to a lack of self-control. He is skillful at handling any kind of weapon, but particularly excels with swords.
The right arm of Azphel, who always understands his lord's will better than anybody, Zikel implements and executes Azphel's commands without hesitation. He tends to look down on everybody other than his leader.
Despite his carelessness and rash actions, Lord Zikel cares about his people more than anybody. His feelings of loyalty and conviction is translated to the hearts of all Asmodian soldiers.
Post Cataclysm History Edit
He harbors the deepest hatred towards the Balaur and the Seraphim Lords, and he is especially on bad terms with Nezekan, who before the Cataclysm was a rival of his. Out of all the Dragon Lords, Meslamtaeda would be best described as Zikel's rival and counter part of the Balaur. Both are hot tempered and rashed.
When Deltras and his followers from the Legion of Storm, Nezekan's dedicated Legion, appeared from the Abyss, Zikel caught them and attempted to make them renounce their allegiance. To Lord Zikel, the Legion of Storm must repent and take responsibility for the centuries of bitter cold and darkness that was responsible by the Seraphim Lords. Viewing Zikel as a fallen Empyrean Lord, Deltras instead cursed the lord and attacked him. Without mercy or falter, Zikel struck down the Storm Legion's Brigade General with ease. The remaining legionaries either escaped or were massacred by Zikel and his forces. This was the provocation for the Abyss War.
Scared and weak, the surviving legionaries scattered across the Salintus Desert, and sought refuge by Asmodian humans. Succumbing to pity, the villagers hid the Elyos from Lord Zikel, but were discovered immediately. Without mercy and filled with rage, Zikel executed the remaining Elyos in the village square. Feeling even more angered and betrayed by fellow Asmodians, he cursed the villagers, turning them into Kentari.
Zikel strongly disagreed with the idea of peace with the Balaur, and this resentment has only grown in the intervening centuries. Because of this resentment, he will draw his blade to any Balaur or Elyos without hesitation.
