He was sealed away along with the rest of the clan in the Coffin of Eternal Darkness until he was set free by Hendrickson.

Zeldris' face greatly resembles Meliodas, except his Black Mark is on the left side of his face. He has spiky black hair and dull eyes, and wears a full leather body suit and two gauntlets. He is later revealed as the Demon King's youngest son, with his older brothers being Meliodas and Estarossa.

They will be forced in a powerful state of submission and obedience.
