Jeriko is the leader of the Socius.
Jeri (by Sjaxem and Zybil)
The Superior, Urik, Reiko
Jeriko leads the Shrouders who make themselves available as mercenaries after a fashion. While Lunaria and a greater part of the continent seem to accept their existence, they are threatened by the Order and its Knights who regard them as no more than demons.
Jeriko sends Nexus to propose a treaty with Rasandiel and Amistha, presumably expecting one or both parties to reject the proposal. He sends Xikur to shadow Nexus who ends up saving him and Sjaxem, the two having been captured by the Knights. Xikur escorts them back to Jeriko where Nexus informs them of a weapon he heard tell of while in captivity. While still in development, it is supposedly powerful enough to destroy the Shrouders in one shot.
Jeriko is, in fact, Reiko Soroval who had befriended Sen Kepler in Dienara, having introduced himself as Urik. After the Dienara Incident left Sen amnesiac, Jeriko renamed him Nexus and brought him to Lunaria where they met the Shroud. Jeriko introduced himself as Xikur and suggested that their interests aligned and that "Jeriko" wished to create a society that would be entirely composed of exceptional individuals the world had come to call Shadows.
Powers and Abilities
Jeriko possesses a power unique to himself and Azurel: bestowing magical abilities. Technically, as all Anvarians are descended from magic-users, all this power does is to reactivate that dormant part of their soul. Jeriko can also alter his physical appearance. Due to Azurel's gift, Jeriko can also project illusions through the eyes of others and can alter people's memories.
Within the confines of Castle Lunaria where the Shrouders make their home, Jeriko's face has never been seen. Wrapped in dark black robes, his identity is a mystery which his followers strangely do not question for the most part.
- Jeriko's designation is Cero, Spanish for "zero."
- In the fictional Rienan language, Jeriko means "gardens."
The leader of the Shrouders was practically a clone of Xemnas from Kingdom Hearts 2. His motivations while obscure were grand enough to assemble an organization with which to defy the protagonist. This was before it was decided that one of the Shrouders would be the protagonist.
Jeriko was partially inspired by the Emperor from Star Wars.
