Wow, did I just say that?
Belizarius is a character who appears exclusively within the Winx Club Comic Series. He makes his debut in Issue 21: The Shaab Stone and he becomes the central antagonist to the Shaab Stone story arc.
Belizarius is a rather overweight man who seems to be in well over his forties as he has notable bald spots on his head. He has a light skin tone, light caramel colored hair, green eyes and some notable stubble on his upper lip.
He wears a purple suit with a reddish-violet waistcoat and light pink dress shirt underneath. He wears a small red bowtie and reddish-violet pants that have slim, vertical pink stripes to match his waistcoat. He also wears black dress shoes.
Belizarius is a selfish and impatient man. Due to his riches, the success of his company and the many influential connections he has, Belizarius has formed a core belief that "anyone can be bought." Thus, he becomes enraged when people refuse to work with him and turn down all of the offers he prepares. He takes these refusals personally and will go to great lengths (again using his wealth and various connections) to either flat out crush them or make their lives so miserable that they will be forced into accepting his initial demands. In fact, when doing so, Belizarius can become panicked and stressed until he gets his way and this can lead to his downfall. It is also revealed that most of his company, the TradeMagix Company, has been established due to acting outside the law of the realms he bases his trades in, so he becomes visibly anxious once the possible consequences can knocking.
Belizarius makes his debut in this issue having just moved his company into Magix City. He is first mentioned by Sky who explains to his friends that Belizarius was able to move the TradeMagix Company to Magix City due to his ability to make friends with those who hold high positions of power. Belizarius is then seen throwing a party in his new residency, chatting it up with one of his associates. He admits to having faced a few difficulties trying to help Belizarius move his company and claims that the realm places its efforts into its schools, so businesses like Belizarius' are not really expected. Once this associate of his leaves, Belizarius is approached by his butler, Servidio, who lets him know that everything is going according to plan.

- Belizarius shares many similarities with another short-term villain who appears in later comics: Napoleon Codifer.
- Both are greedy rich men that desire to acquire more power and believe that they cannot be refused due to their wealth.
- Both have taken over a whole settlement in their pursuit of power.
