|“||I am the Great Holy Knight of Liones, Zaratras. Rest in peace.||„|
|~ Zaratras after defeating a vampire|
Zaratras was the Great Holy Knight of Liones ten years ago. Despite his peculiar and overemotional tendencies, he was marveled for being a paragon of justice and a protector of the weak and was the one to organize the Seven Deadly Sins in the first place.
He was murdered by Hendrickson and Dreyfus after they were brainwashed by the demon Fraudrin. However, due to Merasculla's magic, his lingering feelings of regret for failing to prevent their fall into darkness resurrected him.

Intelligence: Zaratras was an incredibly skilled swordsman, to the point that the likes of Meliodas considered him "invincible" in their sparring sessions and was considered the strongest Holy Knight in Liones even with the presence of the Sins. In combat, he is wise and decisive, quickly realizing what was amiss in Edinburgh and sending the Sins there not long after defeating a Holy Knight-turned vampire. However, he is rather overemotional and airheaded outside of combat, and lacks self-control when confronted with his favorite food, leading to his death as he failed to check the pie Hendrickson made for poison.
Weaknesses: Zaratras is rather airheaded and overemotional at times and has no self-control when confronted with his favorite food, "Yawn of the Black Cat Fish Pies"
