Squalo Vepar is a Pure-Blooded Devil from the House of Vepar, one of the extinct families from the 72 Pillars, which held the rank of Prince and famous Devil families for their water-based magic and combat-oriented techniques. He is also known as the "Scourge of the Underworld" and "The Devourer" for his infamous acts where he manage to go on a total rampage of slaugtherfest against many devil nobles in his days before his fated life imprisonment in the Underworld's most hellish prison.
As he rots away in the prison, he met Nicholas, who was in the Underworld to look for his family's legacy. After in a intense battle between he and Nicholas, he took interests in Squalo's way of life and offered to become his peerage. He accepted the offer, and warned him that he'll be watching him closely and see how he is different from the other devil nobles he have met.
Currently, he's member of Nicholas D. Amduscias's Peerage as Pawn and one of the most wanted criminals in the Underworld of Oustergraht (Highschool DxD's world) along with Nicholas D. Amduscias, who is a SSS-Class Stray Devils and member of the Varia Criminale.
Squalo is a very tall, muscular devil, and is one of the tallest member in Varia Criminale, standing at 6'3 tops. As a household member of Vepar, he had a distinctive merman features where he has a shark-like appearance, complete with pale, blue-green skin. He also has small, round, white eyes, gill-like facial markings under his eyes, and actual gills on his shoulders, and sharp triangular teeth, much like a real shark. He also styled his blue hair in the form of a shark fin.
During his days as fellow noble, he wears a noble clothing with caped-like coats.
After his enrollment into the Varia Criminale, his attires changed into same as Hajime, wearing the long, black cloaks with red clouds, a red interior, and a chin-high collar; and a slashed forehead protector which covered his ears, and adored with the symbol of the Varia Criminale, to symbolize his membership with them. He also wore a brown sash across the front and back of his cloak with his symbol of his clan/household, and to hold Demon Devourer in place. He wore his Amduscias ring on his left ring finger, bearing the rights as his peerage & guardians. Apparently, the girls agreed that since he's going to be in the same attires, he was also forced to wore dark-purple nail polish, making it comical parody between him and Hajime.
Due to his infamous reputation as the "Scourge of the Underworld" and "The Devourer", Squalo was said to be bloodthirsty and sadistic individual as he was demonstrated where he show no hesitation in mutilating his opponents, as he was slaughtering many devil nobles in his rampage. After his imprisonment, Squalo began to harbor a deep loathing for Underworld and its government for personal reasons.
Despite his aggressive nature, Squalo is calm, humble and honest individual. He is also shown to be playful and morbid sense of humour and would often make light of serious situations while sporting a sadistic grin, in which that was his normal smile. This trait would even show during his fights as he would often mock his opponents as seen in the cases of Nicholas and other Devils. Upon hearing of the name that Nicholas had for the group, he referred to them as the "Motley Group" in reference to their different backgrounds. He is also surprisingly a gentleman towards fair maidens as he commented that he dislikes fighting women as he is reminded of his late fiancé and goes against his code of conduits.
During the battle, Squalo has shown that he loves to fight against strong opponents to test out his skills and shows a proper attitude towards beings that deserve respect. Squalo is very perceptive and keen mind in battle, able to deduce the basics behind an opponent's technique and react to any potential danger he is aware of. Also, being paired with members of Varia Criminale for missions given by Nicholas, Squalo is usually unable to finish or even start his battles with other members around, because the latter doesn't enjoy fighting as much as does, except Tenkai, Kruger, Razzjack and probably Nicholas. He would often inform his opponents that they "don't know how lucky they are".
As a child, Squalo and his younger sister, Lilitifa lived in the Gremory territory, due to their household and parents were killed by the Old-Satan Faction during the Devil's Civil War. As he grew up in the Gremory territory, he was inspired to raise his extinct household once more, and began to train in order to attain the strength he needed to realize his dream. After years of training, Squalo was strong enough to be assigned to one of the government's intelligence division, the Cypher Division whose purpose was to guard and extract informations from rivaling factions around the world under orders from his superior, which it was one of the devil nobles from the government.
Eventually, he was recognized for his accomplishments as a prominent members of the Cypher Division and was promised to raised up his extinct household by the Four Great Satan. During this time, he fell in love with one of the member from household of Forneus. After years of succeeding and earning a high-ranking position of Marquis, he caused jealousy among the nobles. It was just a matter of time before he was framed and sentenced to prison for leaking out secret informations to the enemy factions. Before his execution his friends, comrades, and fiancée rescued him and hid within the forest in the outskirts of Vepar territory. It did not take long before they were all surrounded by the government's elite soldiers and slaughtered one by one. Everything that Squalo cared for and loved was stripped away from him, right before his very eyes. After the slaughter was over, he alone survived and stared at all the dead bodies around him as the bloodthirsty hatred and vengeance slowly took what would have been his kind, noble self.
After a few days later, Squalo infiltrated a royal party hosted by the devils nobles. Overwhelmed with extreme hatred and thirst for blood, Squalo goes on a total rampage of slaugtherfest against many devil nobles at the party, causing the Ultimate-Class Devils and eventually, one of the Four Great Satans which it was Sirzechs Lucifer were dispatched to apprehend him. After he was defeated by them, he was sentenced to face life imprisonment in the Underworld's most hellish prison and won't be paroled until the very last of his life was fade away.
