No one really knows when or how did this awesome being come into existence, or if the concept of existence had already been there when he arrived. Some say that he is the one that gave birth to the universe, some say that he is the universe itself. Both are wrong, as he is above all of that. He roamed endlessly before creating the multiverse out of boredom and then descended randomly into one world inside it.
The Sphere Dragon wandered throughout the universes, speechless before the beauty of his creation. Until, he found out about one species that he quickly grew his interest in: the Omnis. Fascinated by what they could do, he brought himself before them as he declared his existence to them. The Omnis were frightened as they bowed before him. The dragon simply smiled at his worshipers and granted them the knowledge of creation, which they used to create the Sephira Crystals. In return, the Omnis gave him a Sephira Crystal. It entered his colossal, celestial body as he felt uneasy. Still, he accepted the gift.
As he launched himself from their world, he felt a strange feeling that bound him to the Omni, that caused his mind and heart to experience sharp pains the further he traveled away from them. He then realized that the Crystal was a trap. Enraged, the dragon took out his heart and the Crystal and crushed them all, severing his bond with his masters. He turned around and gathered the cosmic energy around him, creating fiery stars as they spun wildly and formed a storm with him in the center, making him now looked like a red comet. He dived into the planet, shattering it into pieces and formed the solar system as we know it. A few surviving Omnis were pushed into another dimension, while most of them died immediately right after the collision.
The Sphere Dragon then weakly flew away, encasing himself inside a sphere of light, waiting to be reborn with a new heart. He glanced at one of the planets that he accidentally created when the original planet shattered, and he foresaw his destiny in there. The sphere closed as he fell into a sleep, creating the Sun.
Several years after the main events in the series, the Sphere Dragon awoke from his slumber, and headed to Earth to resume his journey. His presence on the planet caused many natural disasters to occur at the same time and formed many holes in realities. This led to the appearance of otherworldly creatures, Spirits including Sonogami Rinne, Mayuri, the Arusu from another world and also the Omnis.
The Sphere Dragon can be quite arrogant and hateful sometimes, especially against the Omnis. He likes to taunt his enemies during battles. He is described as a "curious and childlike dragon" by Shidou due to being attracted by too many different things on Earth. He also doesn't like human at first, calling them "trivial beings" and "mediocrity".
However, as time passed, he slowly grew interest in Itsuka Shidou - a human that possesses the ability to seal Spirits' power by kissing them. The dragon also mentioned that he had a "strangely familiar" feeling when Shidou and the Spirits are around him, and he felt willing to complete their wishes for unknown reasons.
He stated that he likes to throw star cores in everyone's faces.
Power and abilities
As the Sphere Dragon
Before descending, the Sphere Dragon was presumably nigh-omnipotent. After descending, his power is greatly limited to a certain degree. He possesses no specific knowledge and is drawn towards anything that might excite him, notably the Omnis, the Spirits and human beings. His arrival to Earth caused many supernatural and natural disasters to occur, including several Spacequakes at a single point.
The Sphere Dragon is immortal, although he is still very young as millenniums are merely seconds to him, seemingly still an infant. In terms of strength, durability and speed, he can lift the entire Tenguu City if he wishes to as well as tanking hits that can easily destroy mountains while remain unfazed. He travels with great speeds that can easily outrun the sound from the start. He is also immune to all human diseases.
The Sphere Dragon possesses the power to generate shining stars in the palm of his hand. Their sizes can vary greatly from being a very small one on the tip of his finger to a very big one that is nearly as big as the Fraxinus. These stars are extremely hot, as they will turn anything they touch into nothing, not even by-products such as ashes is visible. The dragon can generate a storm of stars that spins in circle around him, creating a powerful barrier that can also be used for offensive purposes. A field of gravity is created during the process, sucking things towards him and his stars, making it even more deadly. He has a skill called "Center of the Universal Comet". He creates a storm of fiery stars as they dance around him, spinning wildly and make him look like a red comet whenever he takes flight. The dragon then dive into his target with the spinning orbs and pierce through them. He only uses this skill to execute an Omni, as it represents his rage towards the race and also as his taunting move towards the rest of them.
The Sphere Dragon can absorb many forms of energy and strengthen himself, from kinetic energy to pure energy and to develop random new abilities, such as telekinesis, telepathy, matter manipulation... for a short duration.
In addition, he can use purple star fire to incinerate his foes, unleashed through his eyes and mouth. In a very rare case, to reignite a dead sun.
He can communicate with the Angels and the Demon Kings. He refers to the Angels as "Archangels" and the Demon Kings as "Archdemons".
As the Hierarch
In this form, the Sphere Dragon borrows Itsuka Shidou's appearance, with the only difference is his pair of permanent golden eyes. He wears a blue hooded dress uniform, dark blue baggy pants, with light blue linings, has silver shin guards and arm guards along with silver claws sharper than razors on his left hand and a black fingerless leather glove on his right hand. Also, he wears a shoulder piece on his left shoulder that resembles a dragon's scales and a smaller shoulder piece that resembles an angelic wing on the opposite shoulder. The Hierarch also has a buckle made of a big chain around his waist and can be extended at will. He holds a katana with his left hand and keeps a flute inside a leather pouch. The katana has a blue scabbard carved with smooth lines and a small metal piece at the end. It has two cutting edges, unlike normal katanas which have only one, and an ingenious-designed crossguard that is similar to the shoulder piece on his right shoulder.
He retains his godlike physical attributes of his Dragon form. As for his power, the Hierarch possesses the following skills and abilities:

He can "command" everything and anything while ascending. He can give order to no matter what object and they will follow it without hesitation. For example, he can say "Reality destruction" and everything inside the reality will cease to exist, or he can say "Go screw yourself" and those who hear him will respond to his command by screwing themselves literally. Another power is called "Legion", allowing him to summon beings and objects from multiverses to fight under his control.
