Scion of Darkness Julius

Here’s Julius, the prince of the Grannvale Empire! He’s a descendant of Loptous, who once terrorized the continent of Jugdral, but also of some of the crusaders who defeated the dark lord.
Julius was once a kind young man, wise beyond his years. Many people looked up to him fondly, including his sister, Julia, and his beloved Ishtar.
And yet one day, he completely lost himself, becoming an avatar of Loptous! In the blink of an eye, he became cruel and ruthless, so much so that even his father, Emperor Arvis, was terrified of him.
Despite that, I still believe in him. I know that one day, Loptous’s spell will be broken, and Julius’s loved ones will be happily reunited with the kind young man they once knew!
