Enrico Strada, nicknamed "Enri/Rico" is the main male protagonist of upcoming fan fiction, "The Dragon's Bizarre Adventure". He is a former Exorcist who considered to be one of the three strongest Exorcists who worked for the Vatican alongside Dulio Gesualdo, possessor of second-strongest Longinus Gear, Zenith Tempest, and Ezio Cristaldi, possessor of Longinus Gear, Innovate Clear. However, he was excommunicated or left the church after finding out about the death of God in the Bible and learning the corrupted truths within the church.
He is a freelancer and hired-for-gun for the Supernatural World under the alias of "Crusader" and Magician's Association under Mephisto Pheles's administration. He is the possessor of third-strongest Longinus Gear, Annihilation Maker. He's also the grandson of Vasco Strada, the former strongest Exorcist and current Cardinal Priest of Vatican, the son of strongest Evil Dragon, Crom Cruach, and Emilia Strada, the strongest female Exorcist from the Vatican who uses rune craft and sorcery before her imminent death by a certain silver-haired devil.
Enrico is shown to be a tall, well-postured young man in his teenage years, showing leans, but muscular-body built, with height of 6'3 ft. His prominent features are his heterochromatic, piercing, black & gold eyes, and his beautiful, dark-blue with hints of black and blonde where majorities of his hair are swirled, gelled, and spiked out, though some of it falls down on his forehead, forming a small bangs that cover bits of his eyes.
For his attires, he wears a custom-made clothing which it is suited for both formal and battle-orientated situations. it consists a long black coat-jacket with gold and red trim. Beneath his jacket, he wears a dark blue-green, wide-collared shirt where it shows his upper-chest. Underneath, he wears a matching jean-pants held by a thick dark-blue strap with two silver belts wrapped around it, and black shoes, the latter of which have brown straps and triangular metal plating adorning them.
Enrico is rumored to be stoic and intimidating person, but actually he depicts as a reasonable, modest, kind, and caring individual. He also possess somewhat easy-going personality due to his modest and humorous nature that earns him the respect and affections from those who know him.
He also displayed his ability to remain in extremely cool and calm composure, able to keep his composure in even the direst situations. Such example was shown when Enrico has occasionally thought about more random, mundane subjects such as the delicious margherita pizza from Naples, right before being attacked by dozens of High-Class Stray Devils.
Enrico tends to approach things with a calm demeanor and immense composure, but he can still be anxious when things go south. He rarely allows his anger to get the best of him, as it does he act on the benefits of the situation. but he does show moments of tranquil, but brutal and storming fury against certain enemies who would tarnish or mock his code of conduits. In the result, he has killed everyone he fought against enemies without remorse or hesitation, and they all died a gruesome death for punishment.
Alongside his cool and calm personality, he inherited both his grandfather and mother's compassionate and noble heart that wants to help out anybody who has shown him kindness. He values life greatly and always seeks to never leave someone to die, even putting himself in danger if another can stay unharmed. He cares greatly for his comrades, and would risk even his own life to save them, should the need arise. With his noble heart and natural charisma, he has earned a defined trait where he believes that one's actions define their existence. His stance on the belief that those with great power have the ability to change the world, both with their actions, and how they perform is how one should live their life to the fullest, rather than becoming a dishonorable and pitiable existence.
On the other hand, he casually disregards law and principles set by the supernatural world to do his own ways. Enrico has no trouble or qualms in punishing those that needlessly and intentionally hurt other people, as shown when he engineers the corrupted priest's death to avenge the daughter of the flower shop that get cruelly killed, and in fact he will be particularly ruthless and vicious when doing so. Except for people whom he deemed worthy to earn his respect or second chance because he can recognized if that he or she was a moral individual, Overall, he follows his own morality without compromise.
His other defined traits is his composed, confident, battle-maniac personality he inherited from his father, Crom Cruach. Although he is calm, composed individual, he is shown to be prideful and confident about his strengths due to his father, to the point of finding strong opponents to enjoy the moments and having said that he would gladly welcome death if there he were to die by those stronger than him. When it comes to battle, he regularly maintains a facade of confident boldness, backed up by his intelligence, fighting abilities, and his natural charisma, to make him look like a flawless person by his peers. He also acts composed in battle, observing the flow and his opponents carefully before acting accordingly, yielding impressive results that have made him highly valued in the Supernatural world.
However, Enrico does possess a more vulnerable side, a side that he almost never shows. This side of his comes from the extreme loneliness, persecution, and abuses that he suffered from his life at Vatican. While Enrico never says it, Vasco noted that Enrico actually wanted to live a happy life with his family, a normal, peaceful, and fulfilling life. This side of his is known to only a selected few, being Vasco and Griselda.
