Melqart is a Heretic God in Campione!
Melqart has a huge size, comparable to large buildings (in the Light Novels his height is described as being merely two meters) and a muscular appearance. He has a long white mustache and beard. His attire seems to be some form of armor and a crown.
He is also concerned with the condition of the Mediterranean Sea, as the way the people of Sardinia and other locations treated it angered him to the point he was going to kill them all.
Some time in the past, Melqart fought against Verethragna and was injured. His wounds have still not healed completely. In the Light Novels, this battle had happened only a few days previous, and was witnessed by Lucretia Zola.
It is revealed in the Light Novels that Melqart was known by many names in the ancient world, including Baal. As Baal, Melqart was eventually corrupted into the Judeo-Christian demon Beelzebub, which gave him his authority over locusts and flying insects.
