Baron La Croix (クロア＝バロン Baron La Croix) was a former member of the [No Name]s and a friend of Canaria. As a former Demon Lord, Baron bears the titles of "Tailcoat Demon Lord" and is known for his hedonistic nature and love for all things.
A very standard old European gentleman outfit with a hat, round rimmed spectacles and hair that spikes downwards. Baron's bowler hat and two tail waist coat is said to be the source of his Spiritual Power as a Deity. He also appeared as an old gentleman with the same two tail waist coat and a bowler hat. During his meeting with Canaria and also during the attack of Azi Dahaka on the Moon Rabbit village, he appeared as a shadow-like being with his signature bowler hat and two tail waist coat.
Baron may have the appearance of a gentleman and at times act as such, but at core he is a true Hedonist. Everything he does is for pure and absolute pleasure and love. He declared willingly dots on both women and children, even newborns and finds no shame in admitting this along with the fact of asking a child to marry him when that child is deemed old enough. It is not hard to immediately think of what a horrible individual he is.
Yet Baron is amazingly observant and loyal, able to recognize the characteristics of a good leader and is rather devoted to those whom he serves and considers to be comrades. Baron desires to follow under a good leader to the bitter end, even seeing through to his last leader's final wishes. While having a somewhat devious personality, Baron possess a wisdom befitting his status and long life.
Canaria - He's often a target for her snide remarks at him but he enjoys it a lot. It is also shown that he views her like how a father would view his child. Canaria is his ideal of a good leader and, while reluctant at first, saw through her last wishes to give Izayoi the choice in his destiny.
Black Rabbit - Baron was one of the few who saved Black Rabbit from the clone of Azi Dahaka when she was a child. He knew immediately that Black Rabbit would grow up to possess an amazing body and even flirted with the girl during the horrible situation. Naturally Black Rabbit still thinks of Baron as a pervert, but as comrades it is implied they both care for each other.
Leticia Draculea - Baron and Leticia are former comrades.
Sakamaki Izayoi - Baron was the one who tested Izayoi and helped the boy to bring out more of his power. While Baron was said to be jealous of Izayoi's relationship with Canaria, he still came to be greatly impressed with the boy's level of intelligence and power.
Baron La Croix is the one who found Canaria within the walls of the Dystopia Demon Lord's land. There he made Canaria the offer to go with him to explore the outside. Canaria took up the offer, and many years later the two created a community. Through combined effort of many individuals Dystopia was defeated through a method that blocked any attempts of his future being reached.
Two hundred years before the present, Black Rabbit's community was attacked by [Absolute Evil] Azi Dahaka, a Last Embryo. Baron La Croix traveled with Canaria to the Moon to help defend the Moon Rabbit Tribe, but was too late. Even so he wasted no time in flirting with the young Black Rabbit and even scared her because of his actions. Canaria quickly put a stop to his antics and had him summon forth the entire alliance. The battle caused the loss of 80% of the alliance and only in the sealing of Azi Dahaka.
Three years prior to the story, the community was attacked by a powerful Demon Lord, forcing the community into an unwinnable game and causing the community to lose. Baron along with a few others were banished from Little Garden.
Baron reunited with Canaria at some point in the outside world, discussing with her about her condition and how she did not have long to live. With him was Laplace Demon, also known as Lappy, who both expressed their concern for Canaria as well as their jealousy of the relationship Canaria had with Sakamaki Izayoi. Even though he at first denied to assist the boy, Baron decided to abide by Canaria's wishes and assist to help the boy make his choice in the near future.
A year after Canaria's death, Baron arrived with Canaria's Will, a Last Testament of sorts that he would only give to Izayoi. When Izayoi arrived it was mentioned Baron was going around asking all the girls in the orphanage to marry him. Once Izayoi arrived though, Baron had Izayoi read the will in a separate room from everyone else so he could take the chance to nap. However he was awaken when Izayoi activated Canaria's Game. Izayoi correctly guessed the truth of Canaria's game and even the identity of Baron himself. Impressed with Izayoi's skills, he then continued on with the game and brought Izayoi to the world between Life and Death, a boundary where the two could fight. If Izayoi could not defeat Baron then he would fulfill the terms of the game and take everyone with him to the afterlife.
Baron and Izayoi were evenly matched with the battle becoming stagnant. Izayoi had destroyed most of the world that the Baron had created and told him to give up. But Croix's (and Canaria) objective was to make Izayoi be true to his feelings. As the last alternative the Baron started compressing the world and told Izayoi that the only option was to destroy him and this world. Croix explained that Izayoi barely touched the tip of his power and encouraged him to explore his power further. Izayoi activated the Aurora Pillar for the first time and destroyed Croix's world.
Izayoi recalled his game with Baron and how he was inevitably the one who helped Izayoi make his choice.
Through unknown means Baron returned to Little Garden and aided in the rescue of Izayoi and the others with the Floating Castle. Shortly afterwords, he went back and assisted Leticia, Kouryuu, Faceless, Jack and Karyou's escape as well and brought them back to the Vampire Citadel.
