Pawn (7 Pieces)
It is also known as the Nemean Lion. It is about four to five meters tall and has a jewel on its forehead.
Regulus is shown to be an observant fighter. He's also extremely loyal to Sairaorg, calling him "Master", and constantly tries to help him by any means necessary.
According to Azazel, Regulus is the Nemean Lion, which the God from the Bible caught and sealed inside the Longinus Regulus Nemea. After its previous wielder died, Regulus, somehow, materialized himself and killed the group of people that was responsible for his host's murder. It was also at that exact time that Regulus met Sairaorg, who managed to tame him, and then reincarnate him into a Devil worth 7 Pawn Pieces.
Regulus appears in Volume 10, during Rias and Sairaorg's Rating Game. He faced Rias one-on-one and defeated her, telling Issei to use the Phoenix Tears if he wants to save her from retiring from blood loss. He, then, asked Sairaorg to wear him. While initially refusing, Sairaorg eventually agreed after Issei persuaded him to fight at his full strength. The two of them began to merge, attaining Balance Breaker, before proceeding to fight Issei.
He reappears in Volume 12 alongside his master but did not do anything.
Regulus and the rest of Sairaorg's Peerage helped in the experience day for the Auros Academy built in the Underworld in Volume 17. When Qlippoth launched their attack, he assisted Sairaorg in defending the floating island Agreas. He went into Balance Breaker with Sairaorg and fought against Grendel, alongside Issei. But before he and his master could be overwhelmed by the Dragon, they were sneakily attacked by Walburga, leaving Sairaorg heavily injured from the attack of the Holy Cross user. Grendel used this chance to beat Sairaorg up, but he persevered, and with his and Issei's combined effort, they were able to defeat Grendel and have Koneko Toujou seal his soul inside a jewel from Issei's armor.
In Volume 21, Regulus, having transformed into Sairaorg's armor, appeared in order to assist Sairaorg in his battle against Bedeze Abaddon for assisting Saji, and to protect his brother and Clan. While the battle initially proved difficult, they managed to overpower and defeat Bedeze when they activated their Breakdown the Beast form. Later, when they heard news of Trihexa clones wrecking havoc in multiple regions simultaneously, all of Sairaorg's peerage assembled, before heading off to reinforce D×D's army who were battling Qlippoth's army, in Japanese coastal waters.
