–Senator Manfred Beriam, 1933: (Last) The Slash ~Bloody to Fair~
Congressman Manfred Beriam (マンフレッド・ベリアム, Manfureddo Beriamu) is a United States senator whose platform is staunchly anti-crime. He has close ties with the Runorata Family and Nebula, and despises immortality for reasons that are currently unknown.
Manfred has neatly combed short blond hair and dark blue eyes. He is seen wearing a dark brown suit in the 2007 anime adaptation.
Senator Beriam is quite indifferent to social graces and seldom smiles in front of others. His remains aloof even when in the presence of other powerful and during election season.
He is a calculating man, and he has demonstrated a capacity for acting when it suits him -- such as when he pretends to be scared when Hong Chi-Mei breaks into his his office.
