"I am already preparing and moving while thinking about what will happen in a hundred years time. What has happened and what will happen, everything is strategic preparation. Because of Nanahoshi and you, things have become distorted..."

Orsted to Rudeus Greyrat[1]

Orsted (オルステッド Orusuteddo), is the son of the first and is the current (100th) generation Dragon god. He is the mutual nemesis of Hitogami, the Human god. He is a member of the dragon tribe, humanoids with powerful abilities. He is considered the strongest of his kind, giving him the title of the hundredth Dragon God. Orsted is trapped in a time loop by his father, the first Dragon God, and needs to kill the Human-God to escape. [2]

Appearance

Similar to other Dragon Race people such as Perugius, he has silver hair and golden sanpaku eyes with an overpowering look.

He carries no visible equipment and wears a white coat adorned with fur.

Personality

Because he has a curse of being hated and feared by all living things that see his face, Orsted has rather poor social skills and carries a somewhat distant attitude. However, he has an unexpectedly soft side to him.

He is patient and kind towards his comrades. However, when it comes to his objective, he will not hesitate from destroying anything on the way, no matter who or what. He immediately kills any apostle of Hitogami, usually without actually even taking the time to listen to them and has almost killed Rudeus twice because of this.

During his second fight with Rudeus, after realizing that Hitogami had threatened Rudeus' family, who were prophesied to one day team up with Orsted to kill him, Orsted immediately offered him two choices: 1. Join him against Hitogami and he will provide him protection for his family, or 2. Continue serving Hitogami and die, after which Orsted notes he will abduct Rudeus' children due to the aforementioned prophesy of them helping him kill Hitogami. Despite the heavy-handedness of this deal, Orsted makes his dealings with Rudeus as convenient as possible for him and his family even giving him Yubi Ori and magic stones to sell in order to cover for the expenses that Rudeus made in preparation for their battle.[1] Furthermore he has shown himself to be extremely kind towards children, especially Rudeus' children who are immune to his curse and thus don't fear or hate him.

He is also very humble, preferring to refer to his followers as comrades rather than subordinates in spite of the vast power and standing differences.

He tends to become more emotional on topics that involve the Dragon Race as he was quite angry at Rudeus when he mentioned the Dragon Race and spoke of Perugius, a Dragon King. However, he does not get along with the other Dragon Race and seems to hate the Dragon Kings, on one occasion when Rudeus proposed giving himself the title of Dragon King to speed up their future negotiations, Orsted immediately rebuked him and notes that Rudeus is nothing like the Dragon Kings who just go around doing whatever they please due to their title.

Background

His father, The first Dragon God, used the reincarnation technique of the Dragon Tribe to send Orsted in to the future to fight Hitogami.

Power and Abilities

Physical Abilities

Easily defeated North God Kalman III while he was wearing the Fighting god armor; the same armor that tanked an attack that split a supercontinent into two. Perceived the lightning bolt from the sky and was about to run from its course; had he not been trapped by Rudeus. Speed of Light reactions and combat speed (Was casually deflecting with his hands Water god Reida Reia's trump card, "Sword of Deprivation" that was able to land a blow on "Almanfi of Light" (who has lightspeed burst movement); Speed of Light with the attack, Longsword of Light, its variants and its equivalents in other sword styles. Unknown Magic capacity Extended melee range with a sword (Orsted can see several kilometers away); A few hundred meters to several kilometers with Magic.

  • Stamina and Resilience

Orsted is never shown to be tired in his limited combat scenes. Has high pain tolerance and was not bothered by his arm getting cut off, that he even picked it up and used his own severed arm as a weapon. He is able to withstood several of Rudeus' strongest attacks while he was donning the Mk. 1 Magic Armor that that is said to imitate Badigadi's Fighting God Armor. [3]

  • Combat Ability

Most of Orsted's abilities and sword techniques are God ranked, the highest attainable. He tends to fight defensively to see how his opponent attacks, observes an opponent's attacks he has never seen before to satisfy his curiosity[3] otherwise he tends fight only with his bare hands and Saint Dragon Battle Aura when he knows the opponent's skill or technique they are using, giving the impression that he does not fight seriously but he gradually adjusts to using magic depending on how strong the opponent is. Orsted usually finishes off his opponent by punching a hole in their chest. [4][5]

The strongest unarmed fighting style that makes the least use of mana in combat

Intellect and Knowledge

Orsted knows most if not all people in the world, at the very least those of great importance, including how and when they are born and from whom due to his multiple reincarnation time loops. He knows the ultimate attacks of all three sword styles and how to counter each one. As such he knows how to battle against every kind of opponent such as crushing the lungs of a magician to prevent them from casting spells and is able to give advice on improving the Gattling Gun to combat Water God Style users.

Magic Abilities

Has knowledge of most Magic Spells but because of his slow mana regeneration he rarely uses magic unless fighting a strong opponent.

  • Silent Spell-Casting

Orsted is among the few people who are able to use spells without the use of chants

  • Healing Magic

On his second battle against Rudeus and Eris, Orsted combines Silent Spell-Casting with Healing Magic that restores his severed arm and his wounds fully healed in an instant.[3] After the battle, Orsted heals Rudeus' wounds that also restores the arm that was severed from the Teleport Labyrinth which is classified to be at least King Rank Healing Magic. He has also healed the hole he put in Rudeus' chest. Although the rank of this healing magic is never confirmed, it is safe to assume it is emperor or god class.

  • Summoning Magic

Although the magic rank is not specified, Orsted is able to write a magic circle for Summoning Magic for a being to serve as a guardian of Rudeus' family against Hitogami. Almanfi describes the Summoning Magic to be "a complex technique" and when used with Rudeus' magic power, it is able to override the contract of Almanfi as Perugius Dola's familiar which Almanfi deems impossible. [6]

  • Howling Magic

Magic of the Doldia tribe that uses sound. The user howls or roars to disrupt the balance of an opponent like an electric shock and paralyze them. [7]

  • Hypnosis Magic

Magic of the Nuka tribe that Orsted uses to put his opponent to sleep

  • Ran Ma (Magic Disturb)

Cancels the magic of an opponent by disrupting the magic and causing it to never take shape and scatter. Ran Ma only targets one part of the body. On Orsted's first battle, Ran Ma seals the magic on Rudeus' right hand but is able to use magic with his left hand. [4]

  • Dragon Gate

Orsted summons a gate engraved with dragon statues that absorbs the magic power of his opponent. When Dragon Gate is used against Rudeus, the gate cracked leaving some of the effect of Rudeus' magic to make a smaller explosion causing Orsted to remark that Rudeus' magic power is on the same level as Laplace. [4]

  • Gravity magic

"Secret technique"

He isn't tied to the principles of the world, thats means that he can redo things from the beginning with his memories intact no matter when and where he died. If he haven't killed Hitogami 200 years from the "winter of Dragon Armor year 330" he'll be forcibly "returned" there. The first generation Dragon God create this technique. The slow recovery of magic is the side effect

Weaknesses

Extremely slow mana regeneration (he may not be able to replenish his mana capacity fully in 100 years) due to his unique situation of timeloop reset via reincarnation slowing it down, making him reluctant to use magic as he is saving it for when he faces Hitogami. He has a curse on him that makes all living creatures of his world, man, beast, demon, etc., either hate him or fear him extremely. However, this is not a problem for people not of his world.

Equipment

Orsted using Godsword against Rudeus

Curse Suppressing Helmet

A black helmet developed by Cliff that suppresses the curse that causes him to be feared and hated by everyone who looks at him.

『Godsword』

A katana that Orsted summons by pressing his hands together, making Godsword materialize from his left hand after separating them slowly that he uses on his second battle versus Rudeus and later against Kalman III. A lot of Mana gets consumed just by summoning Godsword and it also has a time restriction of at least 10 minutes which is the time it took for Orsted to defeat Kalman III even though Kalman III is using the Fighting God Armor and Dragon King Sword, Kajakuto. [8]

Curses

Curse on Orsted causing even dragons to fear him

According to Hitogami, Orsted was said to have 3 curses. However he only has 1 curse, and 2 of these "curses" are the result of the First Dragon God's technique used on him.

  • The curse of being hated and feared by all living creatures in this world.
  • The curse of being invisible from Hitogami's view. In reality this is a result of the secret technique which allows him to "reset" when he fails a loop.
  • The curse of being unable to go all-out in combat. This is later revealed to be a side-effect from the technique that the first Dragon God used on Orsted to send him forward in time and repeat the time loop until he beats Hitogami. It causes him to have extremely slow magic power restoration, thus he can't freely use magic and several of his techniques.

Quotes

  • "Choose! Rudeus Greyrat! Side with the Human God, and lose everything to me! or follow me, and fight the Human God together! If it's you, since it's you who is immune to my curse, then you should be able to choose with your own will!" [3]


  • Rudeus : "From my view point, you seem to hold a great grudge towards Human God, what is the reason?"
  • Orsted : "Is there someone who does not hold a grudge against that piece of trash?"
  • Rudeus : "...That's true."

Trivia

  • Curse of being hated and feared by all living creatures does not apply to members of the ancient Dragon Race, Nanahoshi, Rudeus and Rudeus' descendants.
  • Orsted tends to give an intimidating gaze. When he met Rudeus and Nanahoshi, he also asked why they are not looking away (indicating they are unaffected by the curse, otherwise they would).
  • Orsted unexpectedly enjoyed the company of Rudeus's child, Lucy, giving her a shoulder ride when she was small and even taught her a trick to do magic when she had difficulties.
  • Even though he is ranked second in Seven Great World Power, Orsted is said to be strongest in the world, surpassing Technique God.
  • Orsted often checks on Rudeus's family when Rudeus was out to make sure that they are safe.
  • He is the 100th generation of the Dragon Gods.
  • He stopped counting after 100 times "returns" (+100 times * 200 years= +20.000 years old)
