―Bellroc after summoning the Fire Titan[src]

Bellroc is the main antagonist of the Tales of Arcadia franchise, serving as the main antagonist of Wizards (alongside Skrael) and the Trollhunters film, Rise of the Titans.

They are the true main leader of the Arcane Order and the sibling of Skrael and Nari. Notably, Bellroc is the final antagonist battled against in the entire franchise.

History

Backstory

Bellroc was born/created many aeons ago and founded the Arcane Order alongside their two followers, Skrael and Nari, the three of them creating the universe, the Earth along with it, with the Titans being used as their handmaidens. Just like Skrael and Nari, Bellroc maintained the balance between magic and mortals for many thousands of years, until they grew disillusioned with humanity's violence towards magical creatures. They then started to undertake several plans to destroy humanity for good.

They, along with their siblings, Skrael and Nari, resurrected Morgana after she was killed by Arthur, and told her to be their champion. Bellroc killed Arthur at the Battle of Killahead. After Morgana's failure in their original plot, Bellroc decided to switch their goal alongside Skrael to destroying the universe and remaking the world by destroying the Genesis Seals and unleashing the Titans upon the world, after which Bellroc would use the Fire Titan to connect with the last primordial Heartstone beneath the center of the universe, which would become Arcadia Oaks. This led to Nari's defection from the Order, so Bellroc and Skrael resurrected the very king they sought to kill to fill up Nari's role, the Green Knight.

Wizards

Bellroc first appeared in the invasion of Camelot, attacking it with fire spells. After the time-traveling heroes returned to the present, the Green Knight captured the corrupted Trollhunter, Jim Lake Jr., and used his amulet to resurrect Morgana from the Shadow Realm (much to her dismay). After learning of Morgana's renunciation to the Guardians of Arcadia, they follow the reformed witch to Hex Tech, where they ambush the heroes and capture them (minus Krel).

They were later defeated by Douxie when they fought with him for Nari the Genesis Seals. With the Seals in their possession, the Order must find Nari if they are to break them and unleash raw magic upon the world. Bellroc manages to find Douxie and Nari blending in an unknown city...

Rise of the Titans

Bellroc, along with Skrael, intercepted the Guardians of Arcadia inside a train in order to capture Nari. Jim, Claire and Douxie attempted to fight the two of them off, but were unsuccessful and Nari was captured. However, Douxie performed a transmogrification spell and exchanged his soul with Nari's. However, Bellroc soon uncovered this subterfuge and forcibly exchanged their souls again, but not before Nari left the Guardians a message.

Bellroc then unlocked the Genesis Seals along with their brethren, and roused the Titans. Bellroc then mounted their Titan, located on the South China Sea, and marched to the centre of the universe, Arcadia Oaks, to set the world anew. However, the Guardinas intercepted them at Arcadia, seeking to stop them after learning that Bellroc alone could also destroy the world. But Bellroc was too powerful for them, and easily threw the Guardians off their Titan. At length, only Jim remained, and Bellroc subdued him too in a hand-to-hand battle. They then told Jim to go and embrace his loved ones for the last time, but Jim refused, and started fighting Bellroc again. Toby then brought the Trifurcate Radiation Blaster in Bellroc's vicinity, and robbed them of their magic. Jim was then able to break Bellroc's staff and kill them by stabbing them with Excalibur.

Physical Description

Bellroc is an androgynous being, with a shifting voice to represent male and female. They are of average height with grey skin, red hair and tattoos on their face resembling traditional Inuit tattoos. After Callista blinds Bellroc at the battle of Killahead bridge, they wear a blindfold. After awakening the lava titan, Bellroc's main eyes glow bright orange.

Bellroc wears a large cape of black feathers, with red wooden pauldrons on each shoulder. The eyes on the pauldron move, and are most likely used as Bellroc's secondary pair of eyes. They wear a wooden chest plate carved to look like a nose and mouth, and the mouth opens depending on the position Bellroc is in.

On their head, Bellroc wears a large skull of a horned, bird-like creature, and wears many other small bones. Their forearms are wrapped in gauze, and they wear a large beaded bracelet on their left wrist. Bellroc wears black pants with a belt with attachments resembling Fulu, and walks barefoot.

Personality

Bellroc is a cruel and ruthless being, hellbent on the destruction of humanity to remake the world in the image of the Arcane Order. Originally, Bellroc sought balance, but even then they were ruthless and uncaring towards humanity, mostly because of the unjust persecution of King Arthur against magical beings like trolls. However, after Morgana failed them as their "champion", Bellroc no longer cared about bringing back the balance between magic and mankind, so they and Skrael set upon a new goal to destroy the universe and remake the Earth in their own image.

To Bellroc, everything and everyone is a tool and a pawn to further their agenda, as they helped resurrect Morgana to serve as a "champion" for the magical when really she was the Arcane Order's pawn, and later did the same to her brother, King Arthur, and even Jim.

From Bellroc's point of view, humanity is irredeemable and a plague upon the earth and so must be wiped away to bring their own perverse idea of balance, and Bellroc is absolutely cruel and spiteful to anyone who gets in their way.

However, Bellroc is very quick to intervene certain events against their standards (even Skrael is aware that they are forbidden to intervene, or they much less give themselves away). Bellroc's thirst for wiping out humanity (and those allied with humans) proved to be their downfall when they impulsively attacked Deya, leading to them getting their main eyes blinded. However, Bellroc seems to have perhaps a sliver of compassion, seen when they gently advised Jim to spend the time was left with his loved ones before they created the world anew.
