Callas (Rider Form)

Callas as Decade Violent Emotion.

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.

Abilities

  • 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.
