|“||You will know soon enough. Get stronger for that coming day. I will give you my power any time you want. However, keep it in your mind that it will come with a sacrifice of something great. I will give you something that is worth the sacrifice. You can show it to those who laughed at you. The existence of a “Dragon” that is.||„|
|~ Ddraig before lending Issei his power|
Ddraig is one of the legendary Two Heavenly Dragons and the arch-rival of Albion. He is the Red Dragon known as the Welsh Dragon and Red Dragon Emperor who resides within the Longinus, Boosted Gear, wielded by Issei Hyoudou. Long ago, he got into a fight with Albion which was disrupted by the Three Great Factions who were at war during the time. In anger, both Dragons attacked the leaders of the Three Factions, causing the three factions to temporarily join hands against them, eventually leading to both of their bodies being destroyed and their souls being sealed into two separate Sacred Gears, with Ddraig being placed inside the Sacred Gear "Boosted Gear".
