Relius is a genius alchemist known as the "Puppeteer". At some point before the start of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, he disappeared without a trace. Relius is known and feared by Tsubaki and Makoto. He also seems to know and dislike Jubei of the Six Heroes. Carl Clover, his son, hates him for taking Ada and Carl's mother away. Carl spends a majority of his travels in pursuit of Relius. During Noel's story in Continuum Shift, Relius attempted to kidnap Noel in order to 'examine' her, and he seems to have gotten a hold of Arakune at the end of his respective story. He did not hesitate to attack his own son, Carl, when confronted by him.

His experiments include the creation of Nox Nyctores: Deus Machina Nirvana, which he harvested his daughter's body to create. He completed this project with help from Kokonoe of Sector Seven. His own puppet, the Fluctus Redactum: Ignis, was created from the body of his wife. Ignis is similar in appearance to Nirvana, although she has a red dress, blue, human-like eyes, a more slender head dress, a top hat instead of a bow, and hooked fingers.

He also seems to have been involved with the creation of Lambda-11 and Nu-13, as told in Lambda's storyline and the extra story "that which is inherited", and by extension possibly the other Murakumo units as well. Relius is seen alongside Phantom and The Imperator of the NOL. He is also working with Hazama to achieve his goals, which at this point are unknown. In the past, he worked alongside Kokonoe of Sector Seven, under a group known as the "Sin Architects". During a expirement with Shuuichirou Ayatsuki while using the first Boundary Interface Prime Field Device, they unknowingly unleashed the Black Beast that was sent back through time.

Visually, Relius has the "old school magician mixed with wannabe cool anime guy" thing going on. His visual design kinda bores me... and something about his costume makes him look kinda "dorky". However, Relius's Jojo's Bizarre Adventure-esk "stand" named Ignis looks pretty awesome. He could easily be a JJBA design in that way. while Ignis does most of Relius's fighting for him, the duo have some cool moves and animations together (although I've seen better). Other than that, Relius isn't a very exciting design considering the series, but he is more interesting than others.
