"Whoops... I had forgotten to confirm if they were the people in the report. Confirmed! Two unknown people, dead! Is that all right?"
"B...but Mr. Alioni was beneath the cliff..."
"Then we can say there were three dead."
"B... but! Lord Twigo, that's horrible!"
"Then is it seven dead?"
"Eeek! Please, anything but that...!"

Twigo is a ruthless and heartless man who doesn't care about his subordinates'[1] or the kingdom's princess'[2] lives. He is relatively self centered and regards his strength as superior to many others.


At some point of time, Twigo was on a training session with his older brother Kaide and complained that he couldn't do it anymore, but his brother berated Twigo of his lack of effort to become a Holy Knight and pressured him to train harder.


Introduction arcEdit

Twigo attacking Meliodas and Elizabeth.

Upon seeing Meliodas and Elizabeth, he quickly cut a part of the cliff they were standing on. Twigo then realized that he had not confirmed if they where the people in the report and said that they were confirmed as two unknown dead people. Some of the knights said that Alioni was under the cliff to which Twigo said that then there were three dead. When the knights said that the thing he had done was horrible, Twigo asked them if the death toll was seven, implying he would kill them for saying so. Just then, to his surprise, Meliodas jumped back from the cliff carrying everyone, including Alioni. That angered Twigo, since that changed his confirmed death toll. Although none of them looked like someone from the Seven Deadly Sins, he recognized Elizabeth as the kingdom's princess.[3]

Twigo sent flying away.

Although there was a search order for bringing her alive, he said that an accidental death can happen, and while they where running, he swung his sword to kill Meliodas and Elizabeth, cutting everything in his path.[4] She was saved by Meliodas, and moments later again was saved from another attack of Twigo, with which he cut the ground.[5] Twigo went close to them and swing his sword again, thinking that this time he for sure would kill them, but instead he was the one that took his attack.[6] Hearing Meliodas' name, he realized who he is, but did not want to believe it and swung his sword towards him again, only for his attack to be repelled, defeating Twigo and catapulting him into the sky.[7] As Twigo orders his subordinates to request for reinforcements, Hawk Mama, with the Boar Hat on her head, falls from the sky, blasting Twigo and his men away, and transports the establishment.[8] In the anime, he is shown reporting the situation to Gilthunder.

Vaizel Fight Festival arcEdit

Twigo exploding from the demon's blood

Twigo exploding due to being incompatible to the demon's blood.

Twigo, along with Jericho, is later summoned by the Great Holy Knight Hendrickson, who states that he will give them new powers at a mysterious cave, to which they are guided by Guila and her master, Helbram, with their faces covered. There, the both are shown the corpse of a chained demon[9], with them being surprised to know that a demon was not just an object of folklore, but actually existed. They are then given its blood to drink, and are explained its power-enhancing qualities by the Great Holy Knight. Twigo is hesitant at first, but after remembering his defeat by Meliodas, he drinks it. He, however, is shown to be incompatible with the blood, and explodes due to it.[10]

Kingdom Infiltration arcEdit

While Dreyfus was under Gowther's Nightmare Teller, a younger version of Twigo was seen with his older brother, complaining that he is giving up his ambition to become a Holy Knight, only for his brother to berate his intention to give up and pressure him into more training.


As a Holy Knight apprentice, Twigo was much stronger than ordinary humans and knights. He was capable of slicing a large chunk of a cliff quite easily[11], and by swinging his sword, was able to release a devastating slash that cut down everything in its path.[12] His sword attacks can produce a powerful blast of wind.[13]



Twigo did not care about his subordinates' lives and threatened to kill them when they called his leaving Alioni to die a "horrible" act; they, in return, treated him with fear and respect.[14]
