Dodomekis (ドドメキス, Dodomekisu) was an Angel-class Mavro that belonged to the organization formed by his race. With his powers, he was able to use the Curare Beak to perform his wicked deeds.

Personality Edit

Submission Poison

Dodomekis' "collection".

Dodomekis' main trait was to be a wicked womanizer. Whenever he found a woman that appealed his interests, he used his powers to paralyze them permanently, "so they remain just as beautiful", in his own words.[2] Once paralyzed, the women were added to Dodomekis' "collection", that is, they were dressed as maids and brought to his house, where he enjoyed himself with the ladies around him obeying his orders.[3]

Men Hate

Dodomekis refuses to talk with Heidi.

Dodomekis' taste for women, however, was highly considered by him when he found one. According to himself, if the woman had a seductive body and tender curves, then she was a beautiful woman;[3] now if she was old, or a person that ended up with an Eureka embedded into her body, Dodomekis considered her ugly and intended to kill her.[4]

On the other hand, Dodomekis was extremely crude when it came to men, old people and young children. Not only refusing to even talk with them,[5] Dodomekis often expressed his scorn towards them and gave them a painful death.[6] As a Mavro, Dodomekis was strongly arrogant towards humans that he hated, calling them "trash" and acting sarcastically when he found a weakling.[7]When he considered himself defied, he also got very angry and shouted that living garbage should just die, proceeding to kill the defiant with brutal force.[8]
A dead man

Such arrogance, however, in other instances would make Dodomekis overconfident and carefree, marked by his habit of whistling and smiling sarcastically. In his final moments, it has also led him to a status of utmost despair, in which he couldn't actually believe that his death was actually in process, desperately asking Nacht, his killer, for an explanation, even though it was useless already.[9]

Appearance Edit

Dodomekis had a certain Hispanic look. He was a pale-skinned middle aged man, with linear jaw, chin and nose. He had a long dark hair reaching his shoulders, thin eyebrows and wears a dark eye shadow around his eyes. He also had distinctive dots under his right eye, an upper bigger one and a smaller lower one. Additionally, he had a small mustache and a triangular goatee.

Dodomekis' outfit

Dodomekis' outfit.

As for his clothes, Dodomekis wore a long-sleeved shirt with vertical lines and a dark outlined, V-shaped collar. He also had a long-sleeved dark coat with a cape that symbolized his affiliation to the Mavro. His pants were dark and he wore a belt with a circular buckle, and light-colored boots with the tip lightly pointing upwards. When employing his powers to enhance his body, he seemed to fold the shirt's and the coat's sleeves so they aren't torn. As for accessories, Dodomekis wore a necklace with a crucifix attached to a thread with small spheres on it, similar to the one attached in his Curare Beak, also often seen coming out of his pocket. He also had dark thick rings around his left index finger, and his right middle and little fingers. Depictions of these fingers weren't always accurate, however.

Former Abilities Edit

Drug Excretion Edit

With his Curare Beak, Dodomekis was able to inject various kind of substances inside a body, that depending on how much he decided to use can act as a poison or as a benign drug.[10] The principle of his powers was based on three properties freely controlled by him: The volume of the substance, thus having both benign and poisonous uses; the physical state of the substance; and the place where it was excreted from the his body. Dodomekis was able to apply the substance into the target via dermal, oral and respiratory.

  • Neurotoxin (神経毒, Shinkei Doku): A light-colored substance that affected the nervous system of an individual. The substance could be excreted by Dodomekis through his skin, and he affected targets just by coming in contact with them.[11]
Paralyzing Poison: Dodomekis applied a certain volume of the substance on the nerves of a human target, restraining the movements of that person. However, small actions like breathing and talking were maintained.[12]
Submission Poison: Dodomekis used the substance to make a person's nerves to respond only at his will, therefore making them his slaves, or, how Dodomekis refers to them, his "dolls", as it was particularly used by him to compose his "collection of maids".[3]
Lethal Poison: A certain high volume of the substance was applied by Dodomekis on the nerves of a person, that stopped completely their nervous system, killing them and freezing them in a certain position. According to him, the victim suffered an agonizing painful death after receiving this poison.[11]
Anabolic Drug: A certain volume of the substance was applied on Dodomekis' own nerves to control them and strengthen his body. The scale of the effect depended on his situation: He could either strengthen just his arm lightly by injecting the drug into the desired arm,[13] or intensely enhance his entire body by injecting the drug into his chest.[14] As result, Dodomekis' muscles grew and skin became dark-colored because of the accumulation of the Infectious Poison used in conjunction with the Anabolic Drug.[15] In addition, to make the drug's effect last continuously, he kept the Beak injected on his body.
  • Infectious Poison: A dark-colored substance that affected the skin and the movements of a certain target. When it hits the person in liquid state, their skin gets infected by it and the person lost control of their movements. It was used by him only in conjunction with the Anabolic Drug, in order to strengthen his body to allow him to shoot the poison.[15] Despite the visible damages in the target's body, like skin corrosion, buccal hemorrhage and paralysis,[16] the poison didn't have a quick killing effect, and could be neutralized by normal medication.[17] In vapor state, this poison simply made the target faint.[18]
  • Antihistamine: Dodomekis excreted a substance inside his body to counter the effects of an allergenic that had infected his body, even without knowing the properties of that allergenic.[19]

Additionally, when Dodomekis used his powers, the symbol in his Beak's surface, a hollow circle with five wavy lines surrounding it, appeared around his iris. He could also perform a series of moves and manipulations of the excreted substances to have better fighting skills.

  • Poison Bath: Dodomekis excreted the substance, in liquid state, through his hands, and, with a arm wave, threw the substance at the target. The range and speed of the thrown fluid depended on Dodomekis' level of strength, so he was only seen using this attack after injecting the Anabolic Drug on himself.[15]
  • Poison Breath: Dodomekis controlled the substance to concentrate inside his mouth in vapor state, subsequently releasing it near the target so they breathed the toxic gas and got infected by it.[20]

Physical Prowess Edit

Dodomekis' reflexes

Dodomekis dodges Vivian's attack.

  • Enhanced Durability: Dodomekis was able to withstand Heidi's sudden intensification of gravity several times, without suffering any damage.[21][22] He also took a heavy punch from Nils' Mist Minotaur, and, despite bleeding, managed to endure it and fight back.[23]
  • Enhanced Reflexes: Dodomekis' reflexes were shown to be quite sharp: He dodged Vivian's Crescent Cutlass with significant speed even with the woman approaching him silently and rapidly after he endured Heidi's attack,[24] and also dodged Nils' Minotaur punch twice.[25] He also quickly used his Drug Bath in a split-second before being hit by the same punch.[26]
  • Enhanced Strength: With a single kick, Dodomekis was able to send Nils flying over a significant distance and with a certain damage.[27] Such strength also greatly increased after the use of his Anabolic Drug.
  • Enhanced Speed: Dodomekis demonstrated to be pretty fast, as he quickly charged towards Nils and Heidi without the two being able to notice.[28] He even managed to perform a surprise attack on Vivian without giving the lady time to react, even with her facing Dodomekis at the time.[29]

Former Equipment Edit

As a Eureka-compatible individual, Dodomekis possesses one of the Eureka that exist in the world. The particular Eureka is called Curare Beak which enables him to excrete various kind of drugs throughout his body.[11]

The symbol is in a form of a hollow circle with five wavy lines surrounding it, making it looks like a "Sun". Furthermore, the said beak is also attached into a string of considerable length. The string itself has a few knots which being tied along it periodically after a certain length.

History Edit

Dodomekis went to the Quercy province, France, in order to eliminate Nils' Grandmother, an Eureka-compatible person, because of her powers and Dodomekis' own caprices.[12] After this, he decided to eliminate the people from the nearby town as well, however, the woman, in her last moments, used her Eureka to create an enormous labyrinth to imprison Dodomekis.[30]
