Belus III was the Hunyago brenin (then konung) of the Borvonian Kingdom and later the second emperor of the Bio-Morph Empire. Succeeding Sero Fera after her untimely death. Reigning from 651 CE until his own death in 713 CE, a total of 62 years. Making him the fourth longest-serving imperial leader. He was succeeded by his grandson Belus V.
Born Berig Rocco Ulfilas Teia Ermelandus in the pre-cataclysmic Confederation of Borvo which occupied a large strip of North Asoya's central area. After his grandfather Belus I of the House of Bormana, seceded from the Confederation, he founded the Borvonian Kingdom. Eventually coming under the influence of the growing Asoyan Empire. When the cataclysm affected Mergen, Borvo remained surprisingly untouched but Belus himself got his arm broken. Years later his father abdicated. In 289 CE, he was sent across the ocean to join the UNM in Esus where he served in the 23rd Gaatha Regiment. Against the orders of the then secretary-general Yorosuntha Qundramer, Belus refused to shoot fleeing anoist children. Disobeying a superior order by beating her with his rifle. His previous commendations prevented him from being executed but was sent to a Lenusian correctional facility for 45 years. In prison he came upon the works of a woman making headlines across Mergen. Back home, his father acting as regent, now had to deal with the UNM attempting to vassalize his kingdom over it's strategic position along the eastern asoyan coast. Using knowledge gained as a rifleman, he fought off two invasions. Then subjugating other states along the coastline. His fighting against the UNM encouraged the nobility across Mergen to rise up against them for meddling in their affairs.
In 508 CE, Belus became an imperial commander of the newly created empires Home Systems Defense Force. Overseeing colonial development throughout the Nerthus system. For his service in the Ferasian War he was promoted to General.
In the year 651 CE when Fera died, he attained the throne by winning a majority in the Assembly. Ruling the empire, he inherited many challenges from her reign that threatened to break the imperium such as the rebellious Enlil and Ninlil, both opting to secede. Forcing him to dedicate much energy to consolidating these worlds and it's inhabitants. Elsewhere the Dagon and Ninsun came up after discovering their exploration teams. Belus would, naturally, contend with them as he fought a two-front war to control the lucrative trade planet Lahar. Gaining a modest treaty from the conflict. From the end of the Ferasian War he reignited conflict with the rovar over their support of anti-morph dissidents in his colonies led by empress Mercekos I and her heir apparent Tamvis I. Leading a punitive expedition deep into rovar territory where he sacked Sirara through indiscriminate firebombing. Another were his attempts to conquer the marduk homeworld Ninurta through the East-West expedition, but was defeated at the battle of Kefo by war chieftain Aksil who led the force through the use of retrieved hunyago technology.
Belus spent his last two decades after 693 CE finishing the last anti-imperialist holdouts in Ninlil and Enlil. Seeing himself out of overall command. As the 8th century rolled on he came down with a severe bout of East Lenusia Virus that made him bedridden. With so much having been done during his reign, he looked to ensure his grandson's succession by pulling many favors within the imperial government. In the year 713 CE he died in his own sleep while resting in the kingdom's palace.
