Mikaros (ミカロス, Mikarosu) is a very powerful spell caster and, alongside the Human King and Rafaed, one of the main antagonists of Helck. He's also the doctor who saved Cless when the latter became sick. He is an archsage.[3]


Mikaros is a tall man with long hair.


Mikaros is an arrogant, egoistic person, who wants to destroy the current world order. He would do anything to succeed.

He is a great tactician, manipulator and executes his plans brilliantly. He fears death and is terrified/irritated by the though of someone being stronger, whose he can't match no matter what he does.


Mikaros was a mere foot soldier in the human-demon wars 1500 years ago.[4] In a skirmish against the Demon Empire his whole army was wiped out by the young Azudora. As the last one to stand, his dying and injured comrades were desperately calling out for him.

Instead he chose to abandon them. Mikaros pretended to be a dead body and was praying Azudora would leave, it worked. However it was almost all in vain, because of the deadly toxin of the demon world, which killed the few survivors of the human army and would kill him too. Luck sided with Mikaros once again, while playing dead he awakened and possibly also obtained immortality.[5]

Sometime later, Mikaros wandered the various parts of the world to grow stronger. During his journey he learned of a forbidden curse to create monster nests.[6]

Mikaros over the last several hundred years has gathered humans to use as subjects for the awakening experiment and then kept them in a special sleep for them to not age.[7]

Before each King's death, Mikaros appeared before them and offered a deal, he would save them from death as long as they lend him their power. The Kings accepted the offer and were reborn as angry, hateful, and sorrowful beings. After all four were reborn, they took action to retake the human kingdom for themselves.[8] The Kings then continued to follow Mikaros's orders, but their thirst for ambition could not be fulfilled.[9] However, Mikaros managed to satisfy their desire by merging them together.[10]

Helck's Past ArcEdit


Human Assault ArcEdit

Mikaros Attack

He launched the attack on Tooru Castle. He fairly easily breaks through its defenses. Mikaros almost kills Hyura before Edil interrupts their fight and tells Mikaros to go ahead. Mikaros finally confronts Azudora, but is outmatched. He uses Curse Release to release the nearby humans from the Human King's spell.

While recovering from his wounds, he tells Rafaed about his confrontation with Helck and the location of Helck.[11] In addition he provides Rafaed with a shattered mind Alicia before Rafaed goes to try to stop Helck.[12]

Save the Humans ArcEdit

Rafaed and Mikaros exchange information upon Rafaed's return. Rafaed informs Mikaros that Helck's partner is a flame caster and likely one of the four heavenly demons.[13] In addition Rafaed says that it seems like Helck can no longer go berserk.[14] Since Helck can no longer go berserk, Mikaros decides to make the hero fight his brother once more.[15]

After Vamirio and Helck are lifted up by the movement device, Mikaros attacks them. Vamirio and Mikaros exchange some attacks before Mikaros is overwhelmed and backs off. Despite the situation, Mikaros refuses to surrender and unveils the prototypes from the awakening experiment. The prototypes possess a potential that far exceeds ordinary soldiers.

Helck Mikaros

Mikaros tells Vamirio that they have 5512 prototypes and 5000 of them are protecting the towers. As it turns out, Vamirio had already prepared for a tough defense for the towers and sent Shin and Shin's army to assist the tower destruction group.[16] Vamirio then asks Helck to focus on Mikaros as she takes on the 512 prototypes. Mikaros tells Vamirio to not underestimate the prototypes, but is surprised by her burst of power. Mikaros is launched by Helck through a door.

After Helck decides to fight his brother, Mikaros mocks Helck for this decision. While, Vamirio is occupied with Rafaed and the winged soldiers, Mikaros attempts to assist Cless, but is intercepted by a warrior summoned by Vamirio.[17]

Mikaros reveals that the tower the humans are using is an ancient ruin.[18] Mikaros continues to mock Vamirio's efforts. Vamirio's minion is eventually destroyed by Mikaros. Mikaros attempts to retrieve Sharuami after Ororon grabbed her, but is sliced by Cless. Afterwards, Mikaros is attacked by Cless, Alicia, and the winged humans commanded by Human King.

Mikaros reveals that he is still alive. Mikaros also reveals that he is using a forbidden spell and using the winged soldiers as sacrifices for the spell.[19] Eventually, the Warriors of Ruin are summoned.

Cless comes to help Vamirio and Helck, but is soon banished by Mikaros after attempting to go after Sharuami directly.[20] Mikaros is shocked when Azudora and reinforcements arrive to Vamirio's aid. He becomes horrified after Piwi weakens all of the Warriors of Ruin.

Azudora notices a fault to Mikaros's plan, the fact that the humans are not currently dead, but in hyperspace. However, Mikaros reveals that the humans will become part of hyperspace if they stay there too long. Meanwhile, he intends on using Azudora's attempt to rescue the humans as an opportunity to kill Piwi. Surprisingly, the humans began returning from hyperspace, much to Mikaros's disbelief.

Abilities & PowersEdit

As one of the Human King's most trusted subordinates, it can be assumed that Mikaros is an extremely powerful individual. He's able to fight seemingly evenly with Azudora, one of the Four Heavenly Kings.

He was capable of formulating a plan that made Azudora consider humanity of having the potential to surpass the threat in the north.
