Deadly Sins - List of The Seven Deadly Sins characters - Netflix
The Seven Deadly Sins is a manga series written and illustrated by Nakaba Suzuki, set in a fictitious Britannia (ブリタニア, Buritania) in a time period superficially akin to the European Middle Ages. Likewise superficially, and frequently in ironic or contradictory ways, the series references widely varying traditions, including western Christianity (e.g., The Seven Deadly Sins, the Ten Commandments) and the Arthurian legend (e.g., in naming Meliodas, Escanor, Merlin, Arthur Pendragon, etc.). The contradictory nature of the names given to the groups and characters is reflected in the emergence of the titular group as the protagonists and the group of “Holy Knights” as the antagonists of the series. In accord with the medieval theme, many of The Seven Deadly Sins characters are depicted as types of knights, broadly construed, who are clad in stylized variations of medieval armor, many of whom perform magic. The members of the five clans in the series are Humans, Giants, Fairys, Gods, and Demons possess powerful abilities and magical prowess as well. In the naming of characters, the manga offers a wide variety of further mythical, historical, geographical and cultural allusions, including in the naming of Gowther, Zaratras (Zoroaster), Dreyfus, Gustaf, Frisia, Jericho, Galand, Derierrie, Albions, The Vampires, and Zhivago.
Deadly Sins - Drole - Netflix
Drole (ドロール, Dorōru) Voiced by: Daisuke Ono A giant with four arms, grayish blue skin, and he covers his face with a bag. Underneath his bag he has a human-like face with dark hair covering the left side of his face and a large scar over his gouged out left eye. He is the founder of the Giants' Clan and known as Balor to humans. According to the legends of the Giant Clan, he is recognized as a God by few, and created a sacred dance with deep connections to nature and earth; despite this, during his youth, he was shunned due to his unusual appearance even by giants' standards. He was only accepted in his adulthood due to his valor in battle, which the relatively primitive Giants' Clan praises more than anything. He, alongside Gloxinia, turned Vaizel into a gigantic labyrinth in order to gather fighters to attract the Seven Deadly Sins. His power over Creation is so great it even dwarfs Matrona's. He represents Patience in the Ten Commandments. He and Gloxinia show King and Diane their memories of 3,000 years ago in order to explain why they joined the Demon clan, and eventually abandon their positions as part of the Ten Commandments after realizing the error of their ways as King and Diane, being placed in their bodies, make choices different from the ones they themselves made; for Drole, it was when Zeldris offered him a position in the Ten Commandments or death. In his place, Diane chose to simply run away. He is killed by Chandler, while he and Gloxinia try to protect the Seven Deadly Sins.
