Berserker's True Name is Minotauros (ミーノータウロス, Mīnōtaurosu?), the Lostbelt version of Asterios. Compared to the much more peaceful Asterios, Minotauros is simply a monster that eats people who tread into the Labyrinth.
Lacking the shred of humanity that Asterios displays, Minotauros is largely driven by his hunger and bloodlust, which are mostly one and the same. His speech is even more limited that his Proper Human History counterpart, bellowing his words before descending into roars or childish giggling.
Anastasia: The Permafrost EmpireEdit
Minotauros first appears during the ambush on the rebel army's new stronghold, directed by Alter Ego. He is able to destroy the natural defenses of the surrounding forest with his superior Anti-Fortress Noble Phantasm, allowing the Oprichniki to take the rebel Yaga completely by surprise. By the time Ritsuka Fujimaru, Billy the Kid and Avicebron return in the aftermath of the battle, they find nothing but corpses left. While they are initially led to believe that more than half of the rebels were still alive and captured by Ivan the Terrible's troops, Alter Ego reveals that only a small number were captured, as the majority of the missing Yaga had in fact been eaten by Minotauros.
Minotauros proceeds to trap the party within his labyrinth, separating Avicebron from the others in the process. He battles with Ritsuka and Billy, but withdraws after deciding that he is no longer hungry, stating his intention to eat them later.
When Chaldea begins its raid on Yaga Moscow, Sherlock Holmes identifies Minotauros' position within the city to be the most critical to how they proceed with their plan to rescue Atalante Alter. Kadoc calls him forth to be Atalante's executioner, and Chaldea uses the opportunity to bait Minotauros into unleashing his Noble Phantasm, using its separate dimension to conduct their rescue of the rebels. When Beowulf deals him a final blow, Minotaurus roars with hunger and rage; only to be flooded with memories belonging to his Proper Human History counterpart of Euryale during their time in Okeanos when Ritsuka calls to him with "Asterios". He marvels at the foreign memory of someone calling his name and wishes that "I had been that me" before at last fading away with a smile.
His labyrinth remains standing for a time after his defeat, allowing Avicebron to use its entirety as materials for his Golem Keter Malkuth.
