The King served as the Commander's host body for a number of years, but was discarded[1] when En was chosen as the next host.[2]


He is an older man with long, white hair, and a long beard.


After he is released from the Commander's control and imprisoned, the King is largely unresponsive, only sitting and muttering to himself.[1] He only reacts with fear and defends himself when Kakeru startles him.[3]
