He represent the "Greed". He is the finance of Athena Alston. He is a major antagonist in the series, he often displays a cold sense of humor.
Dolphus appears a young man of eighteen years old, with long black and wavy hair. His appearance doesn't change in human form, minus his skin tone.
Because he rarely if at all is seen at the Dances that take place at the Kamelot mansion, we don't what he wears formally.
As a noah his skin turns umber and his eyes take on a almost glowing yellow. He wears a purple winter coat, and long gloves, a black jumpsuit and combat boots. He also wears a mask covering the lower portion of face mostly his mouth, with his jawline and neck partially visible but obscured, after Yu damaged this mask he wore a metallic version of it. In combat he wears his jumpsuit, which allows him to move more agile, and run faster.
His awakened form or at least partially awakened form is that of a wherewolf.
Following a duel with Yu Kanda after the attack on the North American branch, Dolphus at times removed his mask, and he wears a black with golden stripe battlecoat. Later on he wears black leather jacket, leather paints, boots, and a cross like choker and red fingerless gloves.
Dolphus, is prone to being quiet so much it actually hurts Road, and irritates people such as Yu Kanda, or Lavi, even Neah/Allen both get annoyed by him not speaking. Dolphus when he does speak, he displays a higher sense of himself, he belittles or look down on humans, he displays delight in killing humans, he insists on getting the first kill. However he does show love, he views Road as a sister, and loves his fellow Noah/finance Athena Alston, so much that when Yu and Lenalee attacked her alternate side Medusa he threatened to kill them and all exorcist until he dies.
Unlike Tyki, he feels bloodthristy all the time, Athena believes that turning into a Noah damaged him , mentally which causes him to experience flashbacks and memory loss.
