Callas (カラス Karasu) is a character who appears in the Kamen Rider: Battride War and also the main antagonist in the game.
Callas was Foundation X's scientist that named Susumu Karashima (辛島 進 Karashima Susumu). However, he was trapped in a dimension of bird cage named Mnemosyne (ムネモシュネ Munemoshune) with his former wife, Rie Kanai (叶井 梨絵 Kanai Rie).
As he became a dark evil spirit entity called Callas, she instead becomes a light pure entity named Canaria with growing wings and tails. Later, after his troops had been defeated by the Riders, Callas assumes the form of Kamen Rider Decade Violent Emotion and battles Decade.
Though their power is same, Decade is aided by Wizard and orders him to destroy the Mnemosyne. Panicked, Callas abandons him and tries to protect the Mnemosyne, but Canaria stops him even by entering the cage and Wizard quickly finishes him along with the Mnemosyne. Callas however survived the assault but in return he transforms into an energy ball and leaves with his former wife.
- False Memory:Unlike his counterpart/former wife Canaria, Callas is able to implant a false memory or propaganda on Kamen Riders. The Riders he used is Skull, Eternal and NEW Den-O. It's possible that the riders regained their original memories after his defeat.
- Shape-shifting:Due to being a flying energy ball, Callas is able to transform into Kamen Rider Decade Violent Emotion. However, unlike his template, Decade, he can only gain access into Decade's power not the previous Riders' power as he can be seen equally matched with Decade.
- Portal:Callas can also create a portal, allowing his followers to escape or forcefully sucking the Riders in order to turn them into his followers via brainwashing process.
After Karashima trapped in a dimension of bird cage named Mnemosyne (ムネモシュネ Munemoshune) with his former wife, Rie Kanai, he became a flying dark energy ball with wings and tails while naming himself Callas. The dark energy which he emits representing his dark and evil nature.

Behind the scenes
His current name, Callas is an anagram of his human name, Susumu Karashima with his name being written Karashima Susumu in Japanese order. His name is also the Japanese word for "Crow" (カラス Karasu), a bird.
