How Howzer joined the Tourney
During his childhood, Howzer was the childhood friend of Gilthunder, Griamore, Margaret, Veronica and Elizabeth as they always play together. Howzer was taught how to be a knight by Dreyfus and became a Holy Knight after the Seven Deadly Sins were framed.
To atone for the evil he committed under Hendrickson, Howzer sets his sights on a renegade Pikachu called Pikachu Libre.
