Angelic, Lingo (Presumably basic)
Slightly Damned #636 [TS] (actual)
Zahariah Sanjulo, often referred to as just "Sanjulo", was a Fire Angel and best friend of Kazai Suizahn, Kieri Suizahn's twin. He was stranded on Medius alongside Kazai, Kieri and an unnamed Median when a Counterreaction portal opened unexpectedly under them in Heaven.
Sanjulo looks like most Angels, however his hair has a more noticeable light shade of red on top of the solid-red color of his bangs. His most notable trait is purple eyes with 'sharp' corners. He appears to be slightly taller than Kazai. As a Fire Angel he wears a red uniform with the Fire element symbol on his chest and a pale pink shirt underneath. Around his head is a headband that matches his hair-colors. He also wears a light-red sash across his chest, with both the Sun and Star Emblems on their just like with Kazai.
During Kieri's first recollection of him, he seems to have a very cheerful personality. When he eventually made his appearance he was shown to be quite similar to Kazai behavior-wise and shared the same belief about Demons as he had. Like Darius Elexion, it appears that Sanjulo has an preference for men given how he acted with Kazai during the Spring Flower Festival. At first, like Darius, his sexuality was not directly stated within the comic but confirmed by Chu, though eventually Kazai would confess his love for him within the comic. Because of how Heaven is set to force Angels to follow certain customs, including that they must only love those of their respective element, this would likely be the first time he goes against their teachings if it means being with the one he loves. While it's unknown how deep their love would have gone as neither of them were shown to have treated each other the way other characters in relationships have (inside and outside the main story), Kazai did show major grief toward him after Sanjulo was slain.
Arriving in MediusEdit
One day, Sanjulo along with Kieri, Kazai and a Human were pulled into a strange portal that was part of the Counterreaction and ended up in Medius, at the graveyard outside of Farun. There they buried the human and proceeded to head to Farun in order to figure out their next course of action.
Eventually the three encountered a Fire Demon while walking around town and they gave chase after it. Kieri, being slower than the two, ended up falling behind and getting caught by Lazuli and Talus, two Demons who were with the other one. It's unclear what sort of action he and Kazai took afterward as most of their history is unknown. They would end up leaving Farun and started heading eastward where they would end up in Weyville before heading to St. Curtis.
Recently, it was revealed that he and Kazai caused the rock-slide that blocked the western pass of Blossom Valley (for unexplained reasons) which was the same rock-slide that had forced Rhea, Kieri and Buwaro to travel to St. Curtis via Weyville instead. Kazai and Sanjulo were placed under arrest in St. Curtis for it but were released and gone after they were forced to clean it up and fix the road before Kieri arrived.
Demon Invasion - The GatheringEdit
With Melli dead and Meeros gone, the signal was given for all the Demons in the city to begin their operation. Sanjulo shows up to where Kieri and Kazai were and happily greeted Kieri before talking to Kazai about flying off on his own, while holding his hands in a manner that confuses Kieri. They both readied their weapons and attacked the snake, who had reverted back into a Jakkai, before Tsavo arrived to aid his partner.
At first Sanjulo tried fighting the Demon only for his magic to be ineffective. He would later attack the Jakkai in a similar manner, remarking how Demons don't help others, only for the Demon to toss him onto his friends and zapped them with magic. The Demon then grabbed his partner and flew away.
The three recollect themselves and Kazai walks off to keep control of his curse form. Just then Verammi arrives, who informs the three to go join with the other Angels in the northwestern part of the city. While Kazai and Sanjulo comply, Kieri, worried about her friends, asks that she should help them. Verammi replies by saying that it should be fine given her orders and the three take flight.
While in flight, Kazai starts to feel pain in his right wing and they set down on a roof so Kieri can apply her magic on it. Sanjulo scolds him for running off and that he'll keep a closer eye on him, which Kazai for more than fine with. He then says that he wants him to see him kill the next Demon they see, prompting Kieri to want to talk with him in private. While he insists Sanjulo should listen too, she nearly reveals about his little secret and he quickly goes along with her. During their conversation Sanjulo barely makes out what is going on and notices there is a dog with them now.
Afterwards, Kazai went back to Sanjulo. The two then took flight, resuming their mission to help the other Angels.
They were then ambushed by Azurai who used the still living body of Denevol as bait. The group of Angels consisting of Kieri, Kazai and Sanjulo fought him but proved to be no match for the Fire Demon who seemed to have been holding back since the beginning of the fight as -when Kazai made him mad by cutting off his right horn- he easily disarmed Sanjulo with a single swipe of his claws (damaging both the angel's hands) and slashed at his throat with a second swipe when he tried to heal his hands. As he fell, Kazai called out to him as he was stopped by Iratu Elexion. It would then be confirmed by Verammi that Sanjulo had perished given how she praised Kieri for seemingly helping out.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Fire Magic: As a Fire Angel, Sanjulo mainly specializes in this school of magic. He is sufficiently skilled enough to where he can channel spells through both of his weapons.
- Fireball: Sanjulo is capable of casting at least two fireballs at once by channeling through his weapons. However they can easily be deflected by a swipe from Tsavo's claws.
- Magic Bubble: Sanjulo is able to conjure up a barrier that is able to withstand a lightning attack from a Wind Demon.
Holy Magic: As natural to all Angels, Sanjulo is capable of using this school of Magic. He was shown attempting to heal himself after his hands were cut, but was unable to cast a spell as his throat was slashed the moment he tried.
Dual-Weapon Specialist: Sanjulo seems to be proficient in wielding two weapons at once, where as most Angels appear to use only one. While his skills have yet to be shown, given that he possesses two Angel Emblems he is likely very skilled.
Overall Abilities: Sanjulo appeared to be similar to Kazai in skill, having also acquired two Angel Emblems prior to the age of 15 and having significant fighting capabilities. While he is able to overpower a weakened Moonshade after using a powerful transformation ability, he would be overwhelmed by a much more experienced Demon like Tsavo or Azurai, even while being in a team with Kazai.
Holy Fire Daggers: Sanjulo possesses two daggers, in which the design is seemingly based on the Elemental Affinity Symbol for 'Fire'. There are three narrow blades sticking upward from a red guard that curves downward. The hilt is covered in bandages while the bottom is red. They can be used to channel Fire Magic spells with.
Sun Emblem: By wearing this pendant, wings will appear on his back and he can fly if needed.
- Flight: The Angel Wings granted to him from the pendent are large enough to carry himself and one other person while in flight.
Star Emblem: By wearing this pendant, his magic power increases while also improving his concentration.
- Enhanced Concentration: While active a halo appeared over his head which allowed him to perform high-level spells.
- Sanjulo appears to be the "boy" in his relationship with Kazai.
