Besides his kind devotion to his wives, he is a man of principle, and honor who doesn't hesitate say his words. When he speaks most people can't help but feel overwhelmed and see the error of their ways by talking or beating the hell out of them. He also helps the people who are in trouble and doesn't care about being rich or powerful. Due to this trait, he's not the type to judge others and is generally respectable and accepting of anyone who is friendly as long as he doesn't suspect foul play.

When he is in this state, he show moments of intense, bloodlust-filled brutality and fury. Vali Lucifer and Ikuse Tobio, a prominent fighters of Grigori, noted that when he is in this state, they both have to risk their lives in order to stop his rampage, a testament of his anger.
