Rolex Gadras is the commander of Helman's 5th army. He's very proud of his swordsmanship and is always happy and motivated for a 1 on 1 duel to test his skill with other famous fighters.
He's famous for being the finest swordsman in Helman and is known for his expertise in wielding two swords.
Personality and AppearanceEditLike most men in Helman, he's a very tall and robust man 194 cm height. He has a short brown hair, a tanned skintone and a very muscular and fit body.
He has a very bohemian nature. Due to his personality, the military headquarters find it hard to control him. Unlike most of the Helman generals from the military, he's a very relaxed and laid-back man. While he's not an alcoholic, he's still very fond of alcohol and loves to party with his men. He is also a very capable leader and his subordinates are incredibly loyal to him due to the admiration they have for his skill, to the point they are willing to sacrifice their lives to ensure his survival.
Rolex is married but his wife Lil Gadras sadly passed away. He was thrown into a huge depression after her death and chose to drown his sorrows in alcohol, becoming a mess of a general. He eventually managed to snap out of it with the help of Oruoure, one his most trusted subordinates, and made a vow with his wife that he would dedicate his life to doing duty of protecting Helman as the general of the 5th Army.
AbilitiesEditRolex is the best swordsman in Helman and one of the strongest soldiers in the military. His fame earned with his swordsmanship has spread all over the continent. Along with Uesugi Kenshin from JAPAN and Rick Addison from Leazas, Rolex is in the podium of the best swordsmen in The Continent, he was also considered the strongest man in helman after Thoma Lipton himself.
On the battlefield he wields a big and heavy sword with his right arm and a JAPANese katana with his left hand, an unconventional offensive style called Bajibahal style. He has a Lv2 Sword Combat skill that he's taken to the limit and is extremely skilled with the use of two swords, to the point extremely capable fighters like Rick Addison acknowledge his skills. His current level is one of the highest in The Continent, being level 60 by LP0006 and boasting an even higher cap of 71. His strength was recognized even by powerful individuals such as Miracle Tou, who fancied with making him part of her theoretical elite group of the Twelve Knights.
He has a special skill called "Type-2 Soaring Wave", a powerful and devastating shock wave attack that travels in a long straight line, destroying everything in its path. In Kichikuou Rance, this attack could split entire armies in half although it leaves him exposed to counter-attack damage.
However, his strength is sometimes limited by his lack of motivation in friendly duels, since if he doesn't hold any particular anger or personal disputes with his opponent, he's not as passional as this in a real battle. It's for this reason that he lost in duels against both Rance and Rick Addison. That said, Rolex's strength skyrockets with the right motivation, usually pushed ahead by feelings of anger or hate and he was capable of overpowering even stronger opponents like Minerva Margaret.
