He was the crowned prince of the Hoelscher Empire.
Baius looks like a younger version of his father.
Baius is vulgar and violent. He is a vicious, vindictive, and sadistic man who loves lording over people, and sees women as nothing more than playthings for him.
Like everyone in the empire, Baius is discriminatory towards beastmen.
Baius was born to one of his father's concubines, but gained the right of succession due to being stronger than the rest of his siblings.
Baius was arranged to marry Princess Liliana S. B. Heiligh of the Heiligh Kingdom, despite already having several mistresses. Their engagement was to be officially announced at the empire's imperial palace as a sign of unity after both nations were invaded by an army of demons.
During the evening before the engagement party, Baius barged into Princess Liliana's room while she was getting dressed and demanded that all her attendants leave them. Against her servants' wishes, Liliana ordered them to comply with Baius' order and they left the princess alone with him. He was almost about to rape her, but she was saved by the intervention of Hajime's arachnae golem. It knocked him out and injected him with a serum that made him impotent. Liliana convinced Baius to behave during the party by telling him that it was the only way get the cure for the serum. After entering together and sharing their first dance, Liliana ignored Baius and interacted with Hajime and his companions. Baius, meanwhile, was mingling with other guests, as well as his mistresses. The party was soon interrupted by the Haulia Tribe after they had infiltrated the palace. They killed many of the guests in order for Emperor Gahard D. Hoelscher to agree to their demands regarding abolishing the slavery of all beastmen in the empire. Gahard initially refused their terms, to which the Haulia Tribe responded by beheading more of the party guests one by one. They eventually worked their way towards killing Baius after he threatened them with his last breath.
- Liliana S. B. Heiligh - Liliana is disgusted at the thought of having to marry Baius, but is willing to put her feelings aside for the political necessity of it. Baius is eager to destroy Liliana's serious and dignified appearance and would love to see her in agony and sorrow from his actions. Liliana, however, will not give Baius the satisfaction of causing her pain by his actions, and will continue to stand up for herself as best as she can. This defiance only encourages Baius to be even more cruel to Liliana.
Power & Abilities
- Expert Combatant - Baius has earned his title as the crowned prince of the Hoelscher Empire by besting the rest of his siblings through combat.
- (To Liliana S. B. Heiligh): "Nothing brings me more pleasure in life than trampling and humiliating those who oppose me. I just love seeing their defiant expressions crumble as they realize how powerless they are. Making fools like you kneel before me is truly the height of ecstasy. Ever since I first tasted this exhilaration, I’ve been addicted. Liliana, from the moment we first met, when you glared so fiercely at me, I knew that I had to make you mine and break you."
