|~ Beelzebub's final words to Adrian|
Beelzebub is the main antagonist of the first arc of Until The Clock Strikes Twelve and is one of the Seven Princes of Hell. He is responsible for several events that have happened prior to the beginning of the series such as the Vietnam War.
Beelzebub is the youngest of the Seven Princes of Hell and the Sin that represents Gluttony.
Born after the fall of Man and created by Lucifer from her own energy, Beelzebub reigned as one of the Seven Princes of Hell alongside Lilith, Leviathan, Satan, Belphegor, Mammon, and Asmodeus. He was born the second youngest and considered himself the most loyal out of all his siblings. However, he was an odd child, fascinated with the world around him.
Long after, the Holy War broke out and Beelzebub was forced by their brother Satanachia into a long war against Heaven. Fearing for the worst of his kind, Beelzebub surged to the front lines, decimating scores of Angels in his sight. At one point, Beelzebub engaged the Seraph Ramiel. Their battle surged across the arm of the Circinus Galaxy in the span of a few minutes. Starr systems were destroyed as the lower arm was beginning to lose its light. In the end, Beelzebub defeated the Seraph Ramiel but was forced to retreat when the Seraph Anael descended from Heaven in order to assist her comrade in battle.
During the war, Beelzebub fell in love with a Demon by the name of Ekra. The two consummated their love in secret away from his older siblings, especially Satan, who at the time viewed emotions such as love as a weakness. She comforted him over the loss of his troops and the two discussed the point of the war. Ultimately finding it useless, Beelzebub promised her that he would try and create a bridge to discuss matters and end the War peacefully. When Sephira's creations, the Gods became involved in the War on the side of Heaven, the Canaanite Pantheon and Greco-Roman Pantheon assisted the Angels during the battle of Alpha Centauri. Beelzebub watched in horror as Ekra was slaughtered in front of Beelzebub, impaled by a number of light spears before her head was ripped off her body and mounted on a pike. Beelzebub snapped. His mind broke and he went on a killing spree. It was on that day that Zeus and Mot knew true terror as Beelzebub completely decimated their armies in his rage.
In Beelzebub's final battle, he attempted to take down the Archangel Raphael, only to be defeated. Everyone assumed him dead, even Satan, however, Beelzebub survived. Spending the next several years recovering, Beelzebub received word that his mother and his eldest sister had disappeared. Attempting to find out what happened, Beelzebub learned from Satan that their mother had been killed at the end of the war by Heaven.
Angry at the world, Beelzebub began his long crusade to finish the war. Blaming Heaven and the Gods for his mother's disappearance, Beelzebub began to plot against the entire world. He corrupted and whispered into the mind of Zeus, pit the Asuras and the Devas against each other, as well as start several wars. When he discovered that his mother had survived and had a child, Beelzebub stopped for a moment and visited Lucifer. Lucifer greeted her son and apologized for not being there for him. Beelzebub just stood in shock. Lucifer presented Adrian to Beelzebub. Wavering in his resolve, Beelzebub opted to further observe his mother. When Zadkiel and several Seraphim alongside a flight of Angels ambushed his mother and sealed her in Hell, Beelzebub's plans were finally cemented. A plan that would ultimately put him at odds with Adrian.
Beelzebub appears as a man in his early to mid-twenties. He has long white hair that reaches down to his back Beelzebub possesses sulfuric yellow eyes much like his fellow Demons. He wears dark clothes with tall purple boots reaching his knees and purple gloves with white outlines and a long black cape. Sometimes, he wears a black bull mask with red patterns on it.
As Marcus, Beelzebub appeared as a kind elderly man that assisted Adrian and Ruby in their hunts as well as provide them with weapons and tools. He wore a beige cardigan sweater, khakis, and a golfer's hat. He also wore dress shoes often and carried around a Glock 9 mm inside his pocket.
His vessels over the years included Emperor Nero. While possessing Nero, he assumed the identity of a man with lightly tanned skin. The man had green eyes and long dark hair. He also wore red robes with gold decorating the robes. On his head was a wreath that symbolized his position as Emperor. While Beelzebub was active, Nero's eyes would become sulfuric yellow. Beelzebub also took the form of one of the most powerful men in Nazi Germany, Heinrich Himmler.
Beelzebub is extremely cruel, deceitful, and selfish. He is also extremely arrogant and prideful. He views other races as garbage, hating everyone except for Demons. His hatred for angels is even greater as he sees them as the cause of his mother's current circumstances. He was the only Demon that was not afraid of Lilith.
Beelzebub has a sadistic sense of humor and took extreme pleasure in inflicting pain on others (psychologically or physically). An example is when he pits the Special Children in a death game partly for his own amusement as watching them kill each other brought him immense joy. Beelzebub also psychologically tortured Samantha, showing her images of her family's deaths in many ways over and over again as well as subjecting Claire to horrible illusions such as waking up to Adrian's corpse while making her believe that she was the one who murdered him. He takes particular relish in killing his victims. The method of execution being pinning them to a wall and disemboweling them then setting them aflame from the inside out while their loved ones watch. However, unlike most demons, Beelzebub only kills when necessary. Nevertheless, he has no regard for the lives of any non-demon or demon and frequently uses the threat of murder as a motivating factor in order to get others to follow his orders or to achieve his goals.
Beelzebub is also a man of his word stating that he always keeps his promises. Beelzebub also shows respect to those who deserve it. He has stated to his brother that he respects him despite their shared animosity. It is to the point where Beelzebub even provided Adrian with a warning about their older sister despite the fact that Adrian had shot him.
Beelzebub has a fanatical devotion to his creator, Lucifer. Leviathan describes Beelzebub as one of those psychotic religious members. Beelzebub would kill anyone and do anything to prove his loyalty and devotion to Lucifer seeing all who oppose her supposed will as traitors who do not deserve to live.
Originally, Beelzebub was not like how he is now. He was a very curious child and a loving person. He was stated by both Satan and Gremory to be extremely kind, viewing Man, Gods, and Angels equally and as beings that should be respected. However, when the Holy War broke out, Beelzebub's mind deteriorated with the death of young devils and the deaths of his siblings. Eventually, his wife's death pushed him over the edge and transformed Beelzebub into the Beelzebub of today.

Attempts at infecting them with diseases or even using the strongest synthesized chemical toxin are useless when dealing with demons. Likewise, due to a lack of an organic or even physical body, demons cannot be in any way harmed by radiation with Satan claiming that he can take an endless number of gamma rays to the face without ever suffering from any adverse effects.), Immunity to all forms of conventional weaponry (Demons cannot be harmed by conventional mortal weaponry such as firearms and bombs.)

- The Colt Revolver
- A Chalice used for communication purposes
Intelligence: Supergenius. A demon whose knowledge is of immense renown, greater than that of his siblings barring Satan and Lilith. Beelzebub is a polyglot and a polymath with very few rivals and even fewer equals. Constantly learning and assessing his environment, Beelzebub is a tactical genius and has drafted plans and plots that spanned hundreds of thousands of years. Carefully moving his pieces and being able to use his siblings without them knowing, Beelzebub was able to concoct a plan shortly after hearing John of Patmos's revelation and sought to begin what he saw as salvation for his kind. In a war, Beelzebub's strategies are deceptively simple, making use of the terrain, conditions, and worlds around him to his advantage. These strategies are capable of catching his foes off-guard and drive them into corners where they more often than not make fatal mistakes. This allowed Beelzebub to win a majority of the battles he was in during the Holy War. Following that, in the shadows of the annals of Human History, Beelzebub proves himself to be a capable schemer and manipulator, possessing a silver tongue that can corrupt leaders into becoming his puppets. These puppets don't even realize they're being used as a means to an end. According to Blacklight, most, if not all major wars and events, were triggered by Beelzebub for the sole purpose of setting off the Six Trumpets of Revelation. His plans had gone unnoticed until World War II where he managed to lose his footing with Truman.
Weaknesses: Beelzebub is incredibly arrogant to the point where he can slip in his plans. While these mistakes can be easily remedied, against beings that he views as lesser it is often fatal as seen with Adrian and his friends. In addition, as a Demon, Beelzebub is highly vulnerable to items pertaining to Heaven such as Holy Water which is like acid to demons as well as Holy Fire and Divine Weapons such as Angel Blades. While less susceptible than most demons, Beelzebub can be restrained by Profane Sigils of considerable power but that power requires someone on par with a Chief Deity or Seraphim in order to pull off.
