|“||I haven't breathed the outside air in ages. God, it's been so long. But what's all this mess? I'll need to get things in order again. Now tell me... Which one of you are the traitors who serves Yama?||”|
—Baylord Doom after awakening from his slumber
Appearance and Personality
He has dark blue purplish hair, red ears, dark blue eyes, fair skin and dark red tattoos on his shoulder, arms and chest. He also has a muscular build body. Currently, his right arm is missing.
He likes to be a bossy leader and tend to look down on others. He is usually rude but can be nice and kind at the same time. He considers canine people as his disposable troops or army that he can use anytime as he pleases, with the only canine people he values being his brothers. Even then, he is not a very attentive older brother, ignoring Yama's genuine attachment to the canine people under his charge and killing those who opposed him, which led to Yama fighting and defeating him. Regardless, he can show mercy to his brothers, as he was willing to give Yama a chance to stop the war and join his side again and even after being locked away for many years, he gave Yama a chance to willingly leave the Cage. Although he is seemingly unrepentant in his grudge against Lo Po Bia Yasratcha and the 10 Family Heads and view of the canine people as disposable troops, he does show a reasonable side as after Baam broke the spell on him, Doom became willing to help him. He does firmly acknowledge that the canine people are destined to be dominated by strength and not even he could change that, openly expressing disgust at Gado for believing he could change the canine people's society as he killed him.
Doom was the oldest of the three Baylord siblings and their leader due to his natural talent in leadership. He eventually discovered a special power to make other humans canine people as well and used it to create the Cage, composed entirely of canine people. Doom was eventually recruited by FUG due to their desire to make Doom and his army theirs. However, Yama refused to follow him and challenged him and Paul. Although Yama himself noted it was a brutal fight, Doom and Paul were defeated. However, Yama was unable to kill Doom as otherwise all the transformation power of the canine people would be lost and thus he chose to seal him away instead, ripping out his heart to keep him in slumber. Doom's unique power was used by Yama to expand the clan after Yama became a Slayer.
Long ago, when Doom's father was still alive before being killed by Lo Po Bia Yasratcha, Doom was asked to run far away from the training camp with his little brothers, because his father was afraid that Yasratcha would kill all three siblings as well.
Powers and Abilities
Doom was noted to be one of the Top 200 Rankers in his prime and Yama noted he was on a different level than Baylord Paul and the toughest challenge to him when he fought them both for the leadership of the clan, with Doom matching and injuring Yama despite Yama's intensive training and Doom's neglect of his own to a stalemate and forcing Yama to use his Complete Transformation to beat him. Another testament to his power was how FUG was impressed enough with his power that they wanted him to be a Slayer. Even in a weakened state, Yama noted Baam and Karaka would be no match for him. Doom was able to kill an injured Gado, who charged him after Baam broke the spell on his heart. After getting his other arm back, Doom was able to fight against Lo Po Bia Dokoko, the leader of the Windbird Branch of the Lo Po Bia Family, using a powerful half-body transformation to damage the Windbird. Dokoko praised him, saying that he is much stronger than he thought, even though Doom was not in his prime. The Windbird quickly recovered from Doom's attack and started to crush Doom in its claws. With Paul was distracting the Windbird, Doom was able to get the jump on Dokoko, paralyze him, and then blow him apart with his Wild Dog's Claw.
Doom's Special Skill "Feral Roar": Doom unleashes a blast of, what is presumed to be Shinsoo, through his yell. It is strong enough to knock back the High Ranker Berdych, that was ranked fourth in Yama's Gang, and cause some damage to the terrain.
Wild Dog's Roar: Doom releases from his yell a blast of Shinsoo that can both paralyze and deal damage. It is strong enough to paralyze Dokoko completely and shred parts of his clothing.
Power Bestowal: Doom is capable of sharing his transformation power with others, turning ordinary people into a canine and giving them the power to transform. This gift of power is bound to Doom's life, preventing Yama from killing him after defeating him.
Mind-Control: With his fang, Doom is able to completely manipulate the minds of the canine people. He cannot mind-control Yama and Paul, like Yasratcha can, but it has been indicated he could counter Yasratcha's mind-control.
Partial Transformation: Doom was born with this mysterious power that allows him to enlarge his body parts and add canine characteristics to them and also he can share this power with ordinary people. He can further progress this transformation. It is not known how many transformations he can undergo, but it is known that he can use up to Level Six. Doom is also able to transform half of his body and is the only one able to transform a separate part of his body.
- Level Six Partial Transformation - Yellow Claws of the Beast: Doom transforms his left hand into a giant furry dark blue paw with yellow and red claws to attack his opponent
- Doom's Partial Transformation - Wild Dog With A Purple Right-Wing: Doom's half body transformation. The right half of Doom's body gains purple markings, his eyes and right-wing turns purple, and his leg and arm transform into grotesque purple, with his arm gaining a sharp blade. In this state, he was able to damage Lo Po Bia Dokoko's Windbird Anima, with Dokoko praising Doom's strength, even though he is not in his prime, and even kill Dokoko himself when the Windbird was preoccupied with Paul with a single attack.
Notes and Trivia
