Meliodas and Zeldris Relation
Meliodas has stated that Zeldris idolized Meliodas greatly when he was the leader of the Ten Commandments before his betrayal. He also said that Zeldris was sincere and honest.
The main reason for Zeldris’s cold-heartedness was because he had fallen in love with the Vampiress Gelda and unlike almost all other demons, he only sought to protect her rather than being interested in the war over the Goddess Clan.
When he was ordered by his father to kill the Vampire Clan, in the end, overwhelmed by the indescribable pain to the point of bursting into tears, he could not bring himself to do it and instead sealed them all away for Gelda’s sake, showing how deeply he loved her and valued his romantic relationship with her in the past. The pain of being betrayed by his elder brother who he looked up to and the great suffering he endured from losing his lover made Zeldris he is now, which only served to increase his anger for Meliodas’ betrayal tremendously.
His rage towards Elizabeth has been seen to be even greater, as she is the main reason why Meliodas betrayed the Demons King, as shown by how he acts much more openly antagonistically towards her than he did with Meliodas.
