This is an article about the Anime Character. For the manga counterpart of the same name, see here.
Julian is the leader of Team Excalibur, a team that represented Europe during the World Beyblade Championships. He represents Italy on the European team and claims to have the strongest dual-rotating bey in Beyblade: Metal Masters, Gravity Destroyer AD145WD.
Julian is a tall, Italian, teenage boy with royal blue eyes and blonde hair that reaches down to his shoulders. Julian has pale skin despite his Italian heritage and a slim physique. Julian is always shown in his trademark, red dress clothing covering his unbuttoned blue/purple button up and gold necklace.
Julian is a very wealthy and powerful blader, causing him to feel that everything good in life comes naturally to him. Despite this, Julian knows how to work for what he wants, and this is the reason why he is an exceptional blader. Julian is still a very vain and arrogant person believing that he is perfection and because of this he can succumb to distress when his beliefs are not met, shown when he is defeated by Damian causing his mental breakdown. After he was stripped of his wealth by Dr. Ziggurat, he was quick to blame Beyblade for his distress but was conviced by Dashan, Sophie and Wales to think otherwise.
Beyblade: Metal Masters
When he grew up, whenever he won trophies at diverse competitions and looked up to his father for his words of encouragement, he always indifferently said that Julian might have won some small competitions but he was not the number one yet, and therefore he was not worth his time.
The Big Bang EmperorJulian first appears getting out of his private limousine as he is spotted by Gingka and Masamune. During the first round of Big Bang Bladers the European team; Team Excalibur was matched up against Team Desert Blaze of the Middle East. The matches are well anticipated until Julian arrives alone, surprising everyone.
Julian agrees that if he loses even once then Desert Blaze will take the win. During the battles Julian tells the story of Destroyer (Perseus) and expresses his love for music and the arts but draws each battle to a swift end with his Destroyer's awesome powers including the power to rotate both right and left. As Gingka looks on Julian leaves claiming victory for his team single handedly.The Festival of Warriors takes place in Greece where Team GanGan Galaxy crashes in anticipation of meeting Julian himself. Their wish is met as they are challenged by Julian's team mates causing him to want in as well. Julian did not participate much in the battle as he allowed his "Twin Jewels" Sophie and Wales to protect him from any attacks.
When Gingka and Masamune finally break through his Twin Jewels defense Julian is able to easily cut them down with his power, defeating them quickly.During the second round of the Tournament Julian is seen on tv when he defeats a beyblader to maintain Excaliburs spot in the next round. The next round he is met by the Wild Card Team; Wang Hu Zhong. Julian stands by and watches as his team leads Excalibur to victory by defeating Wang Hu Zhong two rounds in a row without even giving Julian or Dashan a chance to battle.
Once GanGan Galaxy arrives in Italy for their match with Excalibur Julian is met by Tsubasa at night during one of Julian's walks with his horse. He is challenged by Tsubasa and they only battle for a short time as Tsubasa is only interested in Julian's Destroyer's Left/Reverse Rotation. As they prepare to continue their battle Julian's Twin Jewels battle Tsubasa until Ryuga arrives. Ryuga threatens Julian about having the only Left Rotation bey and that Destroyer is nothing but a toy. Julian does not take it lightly as Ryuga and Tsubasa leave.
The Fall Of The Emperor
Team Excalibur meets Team GanGan Galaxy in the A-Block finals. Team Excalibur starts with Klaus who defeats Masamune in the first match. In the second match Sophie and Wales are defeated by Tsubasa and Yu.
The final match is decided to be Julian vs Gingka who currently isn't present. Gingka finally arrives from his battle against Ryuga and the two begin their battle, Julian is surpised by Gingka's strength who has just come from a battle with Ryuga, so because Julian chose left rotation Gingka knew how to correctly battle him.
Julian continuously reiterates the fact that Victory is like breathing to him and that he cannot be defeated and that his Destroyer is the strongest Dual-Rotating Beyblade. After a vigorous back and forth beyblade battle Julian gains the upper hand by opening the "eyes of Medusa" and turning Pegasus to stone. But Gingka refuses to give up and uses his bey's speed to cancel the eyes of Medusa and attack Gravity Destroyer with his special move the Star Booster Attack which Julian deflects with his own special move Black Excalibur.
Gingka is surprise but realizes if he combines his bey's speed and "Pegasus' wings" he can fly higher and create a new special move. When the Black Excalibur falls to Pegasus' new found special move Stardust Driver Julian is defeated. GanGan Galaxy now moves on to the next match against Team Garcias while Excalibur only has one more loss that they can afford.
Team Excalibur's turn in the Semi Final match comes up when they face Team Starbreaker for a shot in the finals. Starbreaker arrives with only two members of their team. The two members present are Damian and Jack. When Julian sees this he takes this as an insult and sends out Klaus who is crushingly defeated by Jack and put into a coma.
Team Excalibur is down one and could lose if Julian doesn't step up. Julian decides to battle Damian Hart who reveals his knowledge about Destroyer's dual rotation and requests a best of 3 duel with Julian which would allow him to use both rotations. Julian accepts and battles Julian with Destroyer's new powers. Destroyer's high advanced speed is no match for Damian's Hades Kerbecs BD145DS which forces Julian to open a stronger Eyes of Medusa but has no effect on Kerbecs. Julian then unleashes his new special move; Gravity Brave! Even so Julian is defeated by Hades Kerbecs's overwelming strength in the first round.
Julian then uses left rotation in the second match and reveals even more powers including a new version of Gravity Brave and Black Excalibur, but after the attack fails Julian is pushed into a corner by Kerbecs. Kerbecs simply plays with Destroyer, crushing all of Julian's hopes of winning and becoming number 1 one slam at a time.
As Damian prepares to deliver a devastating blow to Julain, he cowards and his physiques Sophie and Wales defend him. Because of their uninvited entry, the American DJ says that Team Excalibur forfeits the match; however, the Cetus team state that the only thing that matters at the moment is protecting Juian and his honor.
As the hopes of him reclaiming his glory come to light, Julian and his Twin Jewels activate their special moves; blue cetus's Grand Fleet, White Cetus's Grand Victoire and Destroyer's Black Excalibur. Damian says that he is impressed, but then unleashes Kerbecs's special move, Hades Gate, which nullifies all of Team Excaliburs' special moves. After Julian and his teammates are defeated Damian forces Julian to admit he's weak, utterly crushing him emotionally.
During GanGan Galaxy's victory celebration, Dr. Ziggurat with a number of people including Julian crash it to announce the Spiral Force to the world. Once Gingka and the others plan to stop them a giant brawl breaks out between the two sides.
Julian tags with Argo in taking on Masamune and Dashan, Argo overpowers the two and leads them into Julians hands where he plans to deliver the final blow until Nile interrupts causing them to eventually retreat. Julian joins Ziggurat and the others at the Launch of Hades City and is assigned to guard the main tower from any intruders.
He is then confronted by Gingka and the others who he refuses to let in until Sophie and Wales hold him off. Julian then reveals that he lost everything to his Konzern name because Hades Inc. had stolen all of the shares so the only thing Ziggurat left him was honor only if he agreed to join Hades Inc. Julian easily defeats Sophie and Wales and is about to return to stopping Gingka and the others; however, he is confronted by Dashan, who stayed behind to battle Julian.Dashan tells Julian that they never got to battle during their teams match and that Julian has fallen into evil. Julian accepts Dashan's challenge and battles him to prove that he is the strongest. Julian and Dashan battle ferociously as they go back in forth with their beys power. Julian gains the upper hand and gets arrogant to where Dashan can break through his Destroyer's line of attack.
Julian fears losing once more and begins to lose his mind but Sophie and Wales remind him that he has friends and it doesn't matter if you lose and it's ok to make mistakes as long as you can get back up again. Julian takes this to heart as he realizes that winning isn't everything and decides to secede from Ziggurats alliance. The two decide to finish their match as they release their full power resulting in Julian's defeat. This does not phase Julian as he decides to move on with his life the right way.

| Destroyer (Perseus)
- Eyes of Medusa: While in counter mode, Destroyer manipulates waves of gravity to hold down a target in place, forcing it into the ground. This can be avoided by outmaneuvering the waves or overpowering them, the move is said to turn the opponent to stone and is under the alias that it is in fact a curse.
- Gravity Brave: Destroyer fires burst of condensed gravity in the shape of arrows, when hit on contact they disperse and crush the opponent with overwhelming gravitational force. While in left rotation, Destroyer fires a flurry of these arrows instead of a single one as it does in right rotation.
- Black Excalibur: Destroyer's Jet Black Sword, it's most powerful special move, where it takes all the energy of Julian's power and its own rotation and focus' it into Excalibur. Destroyer can spread this energy to attack the opponent several times or instead in one ultimate attack that overwhelms the opponent.
