So just who are The Seven Deadly Sins? Other than the fact that they are the most wanted criminals in the world, very little has been known about them … until now. Here's Part 3 in our series of character profiles of the main cast of The Seven Deadly Sins by Nakaba Suzuki!
A.K.A: The Goat Sin of Lust
The member of The Seven Deadly Sins who bears the mark of the Goat Sin of Lust, he joined the adventure in Ordan Village. This pretty boy has a slender body, wears glasses, and has an endearing face that gives off an androgynous vibe. He doesn’t seem to be human, but his true identity and origin are a mystery. Up until ten years ago, he always moved around clad in the giant armor Merlin made so none of the other Deadly Sins knew what Gowther actually looked like. Though evidently his stuffy and peculiar manner of speech was a personal quirk of his even back then.
He always remains cool and collected, but he has no tact and and will say things that are usually difficult to speak out loud, thereby having the tendency to make the people around him uncomfortable. He admits himself to be one who “doesn’t possess a heart” and enjoys reading “tales” written by those who do possess a heart. At Boar’s Hat, he spends his days with his books on the top floor.
His Secluded Life for Ten Years
He took on the identity of “Armand”, changing his mannerisms and looks to suit Pelio’s tastes and living with him as his personal servant and charge after Pelio rescued him following an injury that knocked him out in the outskirts of Ordan Village. When he parts from Pelio, he promises he’ll see him again.

As both a friend and teacher to the new king of Camelot, Arthur, she is assigned to stay near him, and in the decisive battle in the capital arc, she arrived in Liones along with him.
She doesn’t care what other people think and wears a sexy outfit that is completely open in the bosom area and garnished with little hearts. Her inherent magic powers and the truth behind her sin are still a mystery. It was revealed that ten years ago, when The Seven Deadly Sins were surrounded by the Holy Knights under suspicion of trying to overthrow the kingdom, she was the one who knocked Meliodas out, but she never explained the details.

A.K.A: The Saint of the Fountain Youth
Called the “Saint of the Fountain of Youth”, she’s a daughter of the Fairy Folk who’s been protecting the Fairy King’s Forest. She’s the Fairy King Harlequin’s little sister. She can freely manipulate the sacred tree of the forest, possesses the power to create strong gusts of wind, and can deliberately read the mind of anyone she chooses. She’s pure and naive.
For 700 long years, after Harlequin left the land of the fairies, she endured loneliness and only came in contact with people who entered the forest with ill intentions. Because of that, she harbored cold dark feelings toward them, but she felt a connection with Ban when he entered the forest and their mutual love for each other caused warm bright feelings to grow in her. When a Demon suddenly appeared in the forest and attacked, both of them were mortally wounded, and after giving Ban the Chalice from the Fountain of Youth as a way for him to survive, she died. She entrusted the last seed of the forest to Ban.
