NH2183 KER-bkr05 A.K.A. Kerbekeros is one of the main antagonists of Mega Man X: Unit 49. He is a criminal reploid embed in a massive armor that grants him unrelenting power.
Kerbekeros is a sulky maniac for upgrades, probably even more obsessive than the leader of the Neo Maverick Army, Saturn. Because of this obsession, he constantly needs to research new technologies and buy any part that could be useful from the black market, and the result of this accumulation of power, metal scrap and madness is the Raijin Armor. Kerbekeros believes he's closer to become the "Thunder God" after every upgrade. By thinking he's stronger than any reploid when wearing his Raijin Armor, Kerbekeros treats people roughly and threatens to use force everytime someone disagrees with his ideas and proposals or make him angered, even his allies. Considering his movements are too slow due to all the weight of his armor, Kerbekeros won't move a finger if a friend is in danger, at best only give a warning.
Kerbekeros has a few resemblances to the thunder god of the japanese mythology Raijin. In his normal form, the parts corresponding to his skin are red and white, which are the most common colors in the artistic conceptions. In his head, a blonde lock of hair covering his forehead, while a mask covers his mouth.
Raijin Armor and StingersEdit
White predominates in his Raijin Armor, contrasting with the dark blue of the ends and least protected limbs, while the shiny gold of his antlers and the red sashes in his back stay as middle ground.
The six Raijin Stingers attached to his back are his main weapons, being able to resist the most intense voltages (or at least were supposed to). They are the counterpart of the floating circle with the crests that the actual Raijin carries in his back.

Kerbekeros was a common civilian reploid that somehow became involved with criminals and the black market, and developed a strange obsession for upgrades - only a few years later Saturn went berserk for a similar reason - after being exposed to illegal technologies that weren't hindered by the laws.
After gathering enough resources, he started to develop his own technologies and weapons, putting everything on a single gear: the Raijin Armor. Although he had to make experiences to create new weapons and parts, he got the bad habit of not testing these weapons and parts after they are assembled before having to put the suit to work in real situations.

After the Jakob's IncidentEdit
Kerbekeros was convinced by Saturn to make part of his conspiracy, offering him the second highest position in the Neo Maverick Army.
Being the last one to reach the battlefield, Kerbekeros showed his power knocking all the members of the 49th Unit with a single lightning shockwave, power so grand his own Stingers couldn't bear the voltage and fried. After this, Kerbekeros stayed in the area only to watch the conclusion of the battle.
