So the Seven Deadly Sins manga has gotten pretty interesting recently and so many mysteries are cropping up with every new chapter. And that’s our topic of discussion today. But before we begin, Anime watchers, this article contains many SPOILERS. So without further ado and with the spoilers in mind, let’s start “Estarossa and Mael: The Holy War’s Most important Piece”.
Estarossa and Mael: The Holy War’s Most Important Piece
So it has been quite some time since we have been introduced to Estarossa. He being Meliodas’s younger brother, the Demon King’s second born and the commandment of Love. Apparently, Estarossa was an elite demon and basically rendered anyone with hatred, in front of him, powerless. Estarossa was shown fighting Escanor who defeated him for good. But we’ve never been shown the true extent of his power before. But in the recent chapters 273 and 274 of the manga, we viewers were shown something very shocking.
You all remember how Gowther said that he stopped the holy war 3000 years ago and acquired his sin? Well, Gowther’s power is to alter people’s memories, and his magic was so strong that even the Demon King acknowledged his magic and feared him. Well, that was not without reasons. Gowther’s magic was actually so strong that it even fooled the Demon King and all other commandments. As for Estarossa and Mael, we’ll get back to them in a while.
Holy War 3000 years ago and Mael
3000 years back, when the Holy War raged, the Goddess clan, Fairy Clan, Giant clan and human clan were standing together against the demon clan. But there was a traitor among the demon clan who wished to stop the “silly war” and be at peace with his beloved goddess. His name was Meliodas of Commandment of Love: The leader of the 10 Commandments. He sided with the Goddess clan’s Elizabeth because they were in love with each other and somehow after ages of fighting and sacrifices, the war came to a temporary pause.
There were four Archangels : Tamiel, Seriel, Reduciel and Mael. Their Graces were Ocean, Tornado, Flash, and Sunshine. That’s right. Mael was the original wielder of Sunshine. He took after his elder brother Reduciel and wanted Elizabeth to pay attention to him. He kind of loved Elizabeth. At that point, Gowther used his magic to alter Mael’s memories and everyone else’s, giving them the false notion of Estarossa killing Mael. He made Mael into believing that he is Estarossa. Mael earned a name for himself: The Strongest Archangel and the Angel of Death.
Mael was slowly converted to Estarossa, and given the commandment of love against his will. Yet, for a brief moment, his mind and body acted differently but he knew he was being set up for those few moments. After that, he probably had no memories whatsoever. So Estarossa was being called as the weakest demon who couldn’t even hurt a fly. But here again, Estarossa wanted Elizabeth to pay attention to him but she would only be around Meliodas and that hurt Estarossa. Estarossa is Mael with his memories altered. That makes Mael/Estarossa a former Archangel and an important piece in order to end the holy war 3000 years later and in the past too.
Estarossa and Mael | Real Estarossa
As Gowther said, a demon called Estarossa never existed. Gowther admits creating an illusion of him but perhaps that stopped the war 3000 years ago. Also, the real Estarossa was an injured dog whom Elizabeth rescued.
The war 3000 years ago did not properly end. It came to more of a pause. Yet one thing is very clear: Mael was an important part in stopping the war. It was highly likely that Gowther just chose Mael as being important in stopping the war. It has to do with Mael being the strongest archangel. Gowther’s idea of peace, perhaps, is a balance of power between enemy clans. And so he just transformed Mael, the strongest archangel, to a demon in order to bring the balance of power.
