Paragus (パラガス Paragasu) is one of the antagonists in Dragon Ball Super: Broly.
He is referred to as Paragus: BR (パラガス: BR Paragasu: BR) in some media to differentiate him from the original incarnation of Paragus.
Creation and Concept
Like his alternate counterpart, Paragus is a tall and well-muscled Saiyan. However, Paragus appears much different than his counterpart. He is considerably older, having noticeable wrinkles with fair-skin and gray hair while sporting a full beard. He wears a dark purple jumpsuit with a light purple robes flowing around his waist, white gloves and boots, and dons a new model Frieza Force armor that is white with green abdomen and shoulderpads. He also keeps his tail hanging loosely under his cloth and is shown wearing a mechanical belt, which is implied to contain an important secret.
In Broly, he is noted to possess a certain ambition while accompanying his son Broly. He also stated that he would raise his son into the ultimate warrior, then he would have his revenge.
Paragus was a loyal military lieutenant of King Vegeta, until he was blessed with a son who had potential even greater than King Vegeta's son Prince Vegeta. However, King Vegeta became jealous of his potential, so he sent Broly to an outlying planet in a Saiyan space pod, and a furious Paragus betrayed King Vegeta and sought out his son to save him. He found him on a stormy planet, but when he attempted to bring him back, his ship was destroyed, marooning him and Broly. Later on, a platoon of Frieza's soldiers found Paragus and his son and brought them to Frieza, who recruited them.
