Origin

 Keel's dark past
 Keel's dark past
Although little is known about his history, it has been revealed that Keel was originally a Dragon Ape prior to being sealed in a human form by Siva 3 years ago. During his childhood, Keel was constantly bullied and often times called a monster. But as he got older, he developed close ties with three ape monsters until he killed their adopted mother for reasons currently unknown. He now travels with Lavi, Mippy and Blue in search of Siva to revert him back to his original form.

Creation

Keel was created by Kenshiro Sakamoto. Despite the lack of notes on what inspired the author to create him, there have been some striking resemblances between Keel and characters from other series, most notably Natsu from Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail. Like Natsu, Keel is hotheaded and reckless and has a strong will to fight. They both have a connection to dragons, with Natsu being raised by a dragon and Keel being one (albeit also half Ape), they're both searching for someone missing ( Igneel for Natsu and Siva for Keel), and they both have a rival with whom they constantly argue and fight with ( Gray for Natsu and Blue for Keel).

Character Evolution

Appearance

 Keel's true form as the Dragon Ape
 Keel's true form as the Dragon Ape
In his human form, Keel has light brown hair and orange-brownish eyes and sports a "bad boy" look, bearing a tattoo on his left arm and wearing a skull hair piece, multiple ear piercings, and a tank top with a sleeveless vest on top which says "Funky Monkey" on it. He also wears a collar, that was placed on him by Siva which cannot be removed except by someone who can play the entire seal melody, and a contract ring on his left arm, which enables Lavi to restore his right arm with her music. Although his original form as a Dragon Ape has not been completely revealed, his shadow and flashbacks depict him as giant monster with huge arms and scales all over his body. 

Personality

Keel is arrogant, reckless, and a complete hothead who gets into many senseless fights (mostly with Blue) without considering the consequences. He also tends to be rude at times, often calling people by improper honorifics or nicknames such as calling Gomeji "old man" or Lavi as "ugly bitch". Nevertheless, despite his impolite mannerisms and violent nature, Keel does have a compassionate and kind side to him. He deeply cares for his friends and is always willing to risk his life to save them such as when he tried to stop a volcano from erupting to give everyone enough time to escape. Although Crem sacrificed herself to save him and his friends (despite his protests), he was heartbroken over losing her and felt as though he had let down a friend. Despite being a fearsome Dragon Ape monster, deep down Keel does have a kind and loving heart. However, his love for bananas still hasn't changed and neither has his wild behavior.
