Orsted is the current Dragon God and mutual nemesis of Hitogami. He's described as the cruelest and strongest of them all.
Similar to other Dragon Race people such as Perugius, he has silver hair and golden sanpaku eyes with an overpowering look.
He carries no visible equipment and wears a white coat adorned with fur.
Because he has a curse of being hated and feared by all living things that see his face, Orsted has rather poor social skills and carries a somewhat distant attitude. However, he has an unexpectedly soft side to him.
He is patient and kind towards his comrades. However, when it comes to his objective, he will not hesitate from destroying anything on the way, no matter who or what. He immediately kills any apostle of Hitogami, usually without actually even taking the time to listen to them and has almost killed Rudeus twice because of this.
During his second fight with Rudeus, after realizing that Hitogami had threatened Rudeus' family, who were prophesied to one day team up with Orsted to kill him, Orsted immediately offered him two choices: 1. Join him against Hitogami and he will provide him protection for his family, or 2. Continue serving Hitogami and die, after which Orsted notes he will abduct Rudeus' children due to the aforementioned prophesy of them helping him kill Hitogami. Despite the heavy-handedness of this deal, Orsted has proven himself to be a perfectly reasonable and honest man in his dealings with Rudeus, and furthermore has shown himself to be extremely kind towards children, especially Rudeus' children who are immune to his curse and thus don't fear or hate him.
He is also very humble, preferring to refer to his followers as comrades rather than subordinates in spite of the vast power and standing differences.
He tends to become more emotional on topics that involve the Dragon Race as he was quite angry at Rudeus when he mentioned the Dragon Race and spoke of Perugius, a Dragon King. However, he does not get along with the other Dragon Race and seems to hate the Dragon Kings, on one occasion when Rudeus proposed giving himself the title of Dragon King to speed up their future negotiations, Orsted immediately rebuked him and notes that Rudeus is nothing like the Dragon Kings who just go around doing whatever they please due to their title.
His father, The first Dragon God, used the reincarnation technique of the Dragon Tribe to send Orsted in to the future to fight Hitogami.

He appears for the first time in the Red Dragon mountain range, killing two Red Dragons in self-defense with one strike each. Noticing the abnormal mana gathering in the Fedoa Region as a result of the Metastasis Event, he curiously heads in its direction.
Initially, he and Nanahoshi were walking by the Red Dragon Lower Jaw and meet <<Dead End>>. After hearing that Hitogami visits Rudeus in his dreams, he fights against <<Dead End>> and easily defeats Ruijerd and Eris while holding back, and almost kills Rudeus after rupturing his inner organs. However, he was scratched by Rudeus' Rock Bullet after being caught off guard. He then spared and healed Rudeus per Nanahoshi`s request.
Under the orders of the Human God, Orsted was ambushed by Rudeus who managed to damage him with magic powerful enough to utterly decimate the city-sized location of the battle, forcing the Dragon God to fight seriously. Summoning the "Godsword", he completely overwhelmed Rudeus by destroying the Magic Armor and slicing off his right arm, but then he faced Eris who managed to put up a fight against him due to her arduous training. Hearing the story about Hitogami's threat from Rudeus, he decided to make him his comrade in his fight against the Human God.
Rudeus learn more about Orsted, his history and his curses. He also explained to Rudeus about Laplace and flow of destiny before moving over to their plans to defeat Hitogami. They decide on their first goal to make Ariel the queen of Asura Kingdom, correcting the course of history which Human God disrupted to gain an advantage over Orsted.
He ordered Rudeus to help princess Ariel and kill Hitogami's apostles who changed the flow of fate. He tailed Rudeus and his party from the shadows, occasionally appearing to advice and help. In the venue, he answers Rudeus' emergency call for help and easily kills Water God Reida. After the events in Asura Kingdom, he told Rudeus the real truth: Orsted is a looped existence that has experienced the world for more than 100 times and that Rudeus is a new existence outside the loops.
Power and Abilities
Orsted is widely considered to be the strongest being in the world, included among the three people Perugius states no one should fight and acknowledged as inmeasurably superior by even the arrogant Sword God Gal Farion.
Most of his ability (i.e. swordsmanship, Magic) has reached God Rank. He has mastered a wide range of ancient dragon race techniques and obscure magic (e.g. Ran Ma, hypnosis from the Nuka tribe, gravity magic), along with possessing the "Godsword" which contains a dreadful energy even when compared to the Seven Swords of the Sword God.
If he dies, he will be reincarnate into the past (reset), with his memories intact. This causes his "curse" of slow magic recovery. He has reincarnated over 100 times for periods of 200 years each (20,000 years of mental age), so he knows every person in the world and their history. This ability is part of the reason he has mastered all techniques in the world.
- Curse Suppressing Helmet: A black helmet developed by Cliff that suppresses the curse that causes him to be feared and hated by everyone who looks at him.
According to Hitogami, Orsted was said to have 3 curses. However he only has 1 curse, and 2 of these "curses" are the result of the First Dragon God's technique used on him.
- The curse of being hated and feared by all living creatures in this world.
- The curse of being invisible from Hitogami's view. In reality this is a result of the secret technique which allows him to "reset" when he fails a loop.
- The curse of being unable to go all-out in combat. This is later revealed to be a side-effect from the technique that the first Dragon God used on Orsted to send him forward in time and repeat the time loop until he beats Hitogami. It causes him to have extremely slow magic power restoration, thus he can't freely use magic and several of his techniques.
Rudeus : "From my view point, you seem to hold a great grudge towards Human God, what is the reason?"
Orsted : "Is there someone who does not hold a grudge against that piece of trash?"
Rudeus : "...That's true."
- Curse of being hated and feared by all living creatures does not apply to members of the ancient Dragon Race, Nanahoshi, Rudeus and Rudeus' descendants.
- Orsted unexpectedly enjoyed the company of Rudeus's child, Lucy, giving her a shoulder ride when she was small and even taught her a trick to do magic when she had difficulties.
- Even though he is ranked second in Seven Great World Power, Orsted is said to be strongest in the world, surpassing Technique God.
- Orsted often checks on Rudeus's family when Rudeus was out to make sure that they are safe.
- He is the 100th generation of the Dragon Gods.
