Things I Like: Zaratras (Seven Deadly Sins)

Zaratras Seven Deadly Sins anime nanatsu no taizai

This somewhat important character is dead for the majority of the series, but I liked him for his brief time. He’s the father of Gilthunder.

He was once the Holy Knight Grandmaster. But ten years before the series started, he was murdered by Hendrickson and Dreyfus under the control of the demon Fraudrin. And the Seven Deadly Sins were framed for it.

With Elizabeth and Hawk being the first to know. Despite being one of the strongest humans in Britannia, he’s pretty goofy.

I liked how he showed Elizabeth the past and protected her when demons came close.

He manages to fight Fraudrin and free his brother Dreyfus with the last of his life force. I found it sad that his son Gilthunder never got to see him really before that happened.

Fun Fact: The End of Mary Queen of Scots

Fun facts about Mary Queen of Scots

When Mary, Queen of Scots was allegedly found to have worked with conspirators to commit regicide against Elizabeth I of England, it left the English queen in a bit of a predicament. Any lesser ranked person would be executed without a second thought, but Elizabeth feared the backlash. While Elizabeth ordered her death anyway, her ultimate concern was that Mary’s son King James VI of Scotland (who was ironically Elizabeth’s heir and eventually successor) would ally with a foreign power against England in revenge.
