"What's with her? The more she fights, the stronger she gets. I can't keep up with her! Am I to be a sacrifice for that God of Destruction?"
—Vual thinking when Shana begins to dominate their fight.

Vual (ウアル Uaru?) is a Crimson Lord and a Wache of Bal Masqué with the true name, "Chaotic Beats of Burdening Drums" (駝鼓の乱囃 Dako no Ransō?).

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Vual takes the form of dromedary camel that stands upright. As such, he is very tall and has a thin body. He has light brown fur, and brown hair growing on the front and back of his neck. He has yellow eyes. Vual wears loose clothing in the form of a blue jacket that covers his entire body.

Vual usually compacts his body during normal activity, but during battle, he spreads out to about twice his usual size.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Vual is confident in his own abilities, not being afraid when he finds out that Shana is a Flame Haze. He is, however, smart enough to know when he is fighting a losing battle.

Biding Time Arc[edit | edit source]

Vual and Purson at Bel Peol's strategy meeting

Vual attends Bel Peol's strategy meeting at Seireiden with Purson.[1]

Vual is in the bar at Seireiden, drinking at the counter with Purson.[2]

Seireiden Battle Arc[edit | edit source]

Vual is among the crowd when Yūji gives a speech before entering the Divine Gate with the Trinity. He and the crowd cheer when Decarabia orders them to move out.[3]

During Rebecca and Khamsin's attack on Seireiden, Fecor contacts Vual and orders him to find out how the Flame Haze got in and if any more are hiding.[4]

Vual with Shana

After Shana regains her powers, she arrives at the Seireiden entrance hall, with Vual entering soon after. He asks why her maid Rinne aren't with her and notes that she has broken the Tartaros bracelet. He tells Shana his mission of finding the intruders and asks who she is. She tells him and he claims that he can go rough because she is a Flame Haze. He activates a Fūzetsu because he doesn't want to damage the room in the coming fight. Vual summons his soldiers, which surround Shana before attacking. Shana is able to easily destroy the soldiers quite easily, something Vual expected. He states that he will get serious and disappears, summoning more soldiers. Vual begins to make clones of himself, but finds that Shana is destroying them faster than he can create them. As the clones begin to back away, Shana uses her new Unrestricted Spells, Shinku and Hien to destroy most of the clones, Shinpan to locate the real Vual, and Danzai to incinerate him.[5]
