|“||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 admired for being a paragon of justice and a protector of the weak, and was one of the main organizers of 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 Melascula's magic, his lingering feelings of regret for failing to prevent their fall into darkness resurrected him. He quickly sacrificed his newly restored life by helping to fight Fraudrin in defense of Liones.
