An A-class adventurer bearing the Title of ‘Sword King’ in life, weakened upon becoming an Undead and currently a Rank 12 Zombie Folklore Hero.

He is a little over three meters tall, and has a characteristic appearance of being bald with one side of his face being only a skull.

He has a rough but helpful personality and eats and drinks a lot. He is the embodiment of a Titan man, and was idolized when he was alive. However, he had a daughter who apparently saw him as a simple doting parent.

Because he can now gain Experience Points simply by devouring the meat of creatures that he kills, he thinks, ‘Being a Zombie isn’t so bad.’

He competes with Vigaro for the position of being Vandalieu’s older brother. He feels no shame in frequently creating easy-to-understand schemes to try and make Vandalieu sit on Talosheim’s throne and marry the Second Princess Zandia of whom only a severed hand is left without the permission of Zandia herself.

In his battle against Riley, he remembered a technique and even turned it into a superior skill. Though his race title hasn’t changed, his Rank has increased.

He has dealt with the ghosts of his past a little, so he feels greatly satisfied with his own achievements.

He has mostly regained the ability he had while alive, and his stamina has surpassed what it was back then. A Rank 10 monster would be enough to cause panic in a city of tens of thousands if spotted. But in Borkus’s case, as he has the appearance of a Titan Zombie, he can pass for a Rank 3 or 4 monster unless he demonstrates his strength himself or an insightful individual sees his true power.

Because of this, he is thinking of pretending to be a Zombie, but his Zombie friends tell him that it’s impossible and he is terrible at acting like a Zombie.

Like Vigaro, he was appointed as one of Talosheim’s military officers, but he has now thrown all of his work onto Chezare, who is supposed to be in a higher position than him.

But as he takes the Undead of the former expedition army with him when he hunts, it can be said that he works by training the new members.

His favorite foods are mayonnaise and soups containing dashi.
