"Storm Dragon" Veldora Tempest 「”暴風龍” ヴェルドラ・テンペスト, "Boufuu Ryuu" Verudora Tenpesuto」 is the youngest of the four strongest dragons (True Dragons). He is connected with Rimuru by an agreement and was known to rampage here and there. He was the one to name Rimuru and Rimuru gave him his last name, since they share the same last name, Rimuru could technically be classified as Veldora's adoptive brother.
Veldora just wants to rampage. He’s only dangerous if he doesn’t get to unwind once in a while.
He is also quite energetic and prideful as he shows that he has no reservation in showing off his strength.
After knowing Rimuru, reading the "sacred" writings (manga) that he brought from his old world, and living in Tempest, he developed a somewhat more patient, analytical and less impulsive personality
Despite his nonchalant personality, he greatly appreciates Rimuru as his friend and trusts him, so he gets angry when someone tries to attack him cowardly, as was the case with Kondou Tatsuya in his fight against his older sister Velgrynd.
Veldora is not good at trying with his older sister Velzardo, so he avoids contact with her as much as possible.
At the end of the series, it was stated that Veldora becomes jealous every time he sees his sisters spoiling his younger brother Velgaia.
His scales gleam like black steel, flexible, and durable, like the scales of a fish.
As a medium, he was given one of Rimuru’s clones, moving his consciousness into it. Thus releasing him from his stomach. Its hair turned platinum. It suddenly started to grow, reaching 2 meters. And, the body turned firm, the face masculine. Only Rimuru’s general facial features remained. He has become a good looking young man. He has the look of a complete battle maniac, taking on an easy to fight in, yet intimidating form.
Dragons are immortal and unblemished beings made of pure energy and formed by sentient beings’ prayers. With only 4 True Dragons in the world, Veldora is a top-class existence. Due to a certain incident 300 years ago, Veldora trashed a human city and attacked Demon Lord Ruminas, and was subsequently defeated by the dispatched Summoned Hero. The beautiful hero imprisoned him in her Endless Prison, sentencing him to live his days in monotonous boredom. Not that he seems to regret it…
However, one fateful day, his foot got bumped by a slime. Curious, as nothing should be able to get close to him due to his pure energy composition, he started to converse with the small slime…
After befriending Rimuru, Veldora consented to Rimuru’s plan to release him from the Endless Prison. While Rimuru goes on his adventure, Veldora spent a year inside Rimuru’s storage space, conducting his own analysis on Endless Prison. He goes through Rimuru’s memories of Japan to pass the time and takes a liking to manga and anime.
Veldora got unleashed on the unsuspecting world after Wisdom Lord Raphael underwent an upgrade in analysis speed and finished preparations of freeing Veldora’s astral body. Through a Soul Corridor with Rimuru, Veldora can inhabit one of Rimuru’s clones as his own form. He’s also essentially immortal, with his memories stored within Rimuru, being able to be summoned again no matter the previous vessel’s state. The dragon is over the moon when he finds out his Investigator, a skill that reflects himself went from a unique skill to become an Ultimate Skill, a once in a few thousand years event, thanks to Rimuru’s Demon Lord ascension and Harvest Festival bequeathing skills upon related souls.
