Michael is the former Grandmaster of the Holy Knights, and an S+ Ranked Hero. He is also the Main Antagonist of Aftercry.
He is also the Leader of Tenma, the army who wages war on the Demon Lords.
Michael is calm, collected, amicable, and a natural leader. It is to the point where some of his own subordinates do not consider him human, as he lacks the "Human instinct" of empathy, and only thinks rationally. Nonetheless, he is seen as the "Perfect Leader" by his subordinates, who would trust their lives with him before themselves.

Dragon Lord Blade: A Legend-Class blade that Michael obtained when he killed a nameless Dragon Lord. The blade has half of the Nameless Dragon Lord's maximum energy concentrated inside of it, allowing Michael to be able to continue to fight and use his abilities, even if he himself were to run out of energy.
- God Armour: A God-Class suit of armour. It possesses a strong blessing upon it that nullifies lower-level magic, and severely lessens the effect of even greater magics.
- God Blade: A God-Class Sword of immeasurable power. It glows with a soft, yet also harsh light. It's power is such that it is able to easily cleave straight through other blades, and even divide molecules.
Intelligence: Extraordinary Genius. Seen by his subordinates as the "Perfect Leader". Even before he became Grandmaster of the Holy Knights, he had been an active Hero, who had slain countless threats, for almost seventy years. Was able to defeat the Demon Lord Mammon, by analysing, and perfectly countering, every single one of his attacks, when he was far weaker than him. Alongside Vega, he was able to create the Tenma Crest. Over the course of the story, Michael has created and developed countless skills, magics, and weapons.
Weaknesses: If he loses the Dragon Lord Blade, he no longer has a consistent supply of Mana, and as such cannot use The Ruler's time stopping ability | If Metatron is detached from his soul, he returns to his base form | None notable
The Ruler: An Innate Skill that is unique to "One who has great authority". It allows Michael's words to greatly influence beings. Using his words, he is able to direct his targets' thought patterns. After gathering enough energy, Michael also gains the ability to stop time for up to 30 minutes. He uses this to seal off his target's magic, as most magics do not happen instantaneously, and as such, cannot be used in stopped time. The Usurper: A Skill that allows the user to steal the abilities of those they kill, developed by Michael. This ability works to deprive it's victims of even passive abilities like regeneration, preventing them from returning from death. The Oracle: An Innate Skill that is unique to "One who can be considered a genius". It has numerous uses, such as allowing Michael to maintain multiple trains of thought, as well as read and predict his opponent's actions. It also increases Michael's perception speed of time from 1,000, up 10,000 times over, allowing him to evade attacks that it would normally be impossible for him to avoid. However, the greatest skill of "The Oracle" is it's analysis ability - Michael is able to perfectly analyse his opponent's movements, techniques, and skills, in under a minute, which he uses to learn how to counter them. Using this, he was able to defeat the Large Star Level Mammon, while he himself was only Continent Level. The Creator: A Skill that allows the user to alter matter and souls, another Skill developed by Michael. This allows him to alter any matter, seemingly "Creating" objects out of thin air. It also allows him to create replicas of souls or objects from memory alone, which he used to revive the dead. Using this ability, Michael was able to create his Executioners, who were originally just mud puppets.
Avaritia - The Avarice: The Evolution of Michael's previous Skill, The Usurper. It specialises in "Depriving" it's targets by altering the soul. By overwriting information in the target's soul, it can "steal" anything from them - Their Strength, Mind, or even their life. Michael considers it to be his trump card and last resort while a Demon Lord, as it is difficult to use at it's full potential, and usually requires physical contact to fully manifest. The Heavenly King: The Evolution of Michael's previous Skill, The Ruler. In addition to it's previous abilities, when activated it allows Michael to summon and command an army of Angels. While the Angels themselves have no physical bodies, and often need a host to interact with the world, while active they are extremely powerful, and are able to fight with Demon Lords.
Primeval Magic: The First Magic. The oldest thing in the world - Older than even the Gods, or Demons. It is a level above all other forms of Skills or Magic, as all aspects of the world come from Primeval Magic. By accumulating enough energy, Michael is able to use this ability to destroy and recreate the world potentially thousands of times. Unlike regular Magic, Primeval Magic requires no preparation, concentration, or incantation - It can be done as easily as thinking. It can only be countered with Primeval Magic, and it's usage is nearly endless.
