In his true form as a Dragon, Animus is a blue, scaly large beast with most notably his crystallized features protruding from his body, such as his horns and claws. His jaw is spiky, while his wings are in the same design with jagged edges coming from them.
In his human form, Animus is a tall, young and slender man with golden hair and purple eyes. He wears orange, gold or bronze, armor (with a matching crown) underneath a large, gold-trimmed, white shoulder cape that in and of itself features exaggerated, pointed shoulders. The cape features a golden emblem on its left side; the outfit is finished with matching white and gold boots.
Animus was mentioned by Sonya to be kind in the past but due to the lust of obtaining the Dragon Cry staff affecting him he has become cruel in the present time. As a ruler her is harsh and demanding, punishing Zash when allowing intruders to acquire the ancient weapon. His desire to revive the world of Dragons guided him to become the manipulative person he has shown. At his death bed he showed his caring side, mentioning he was surprised but in joy to have finally seen Sonya smile.
In his past, him and a gang of Dragons were on the verge of murdering Sonya before Acnologia, the one who murdered all the Dragons that participated in the Dragon King Festival, killed the ones that harmed her and left him on the verge of death himself. He later convinced Sonya to allow him to use her body as a container to recover. This led to him befriending Sonya during her childhood, then after becoming the king of Stella she became his aide.
