Gowther is the Sin of Lust with the symbol of the Goat and the fifth Sin to join, being an androgynous and bespectacled bookworm with pink hair who initially appeared as a massive man clad in body armor designed to stabilize his power due to his unstable mind. He is first seen as eerily emotionless and analytically stoic while also very socially inept as his curiosity often has him performing highly questionable actions like manipulating the memories of others. At the time he was discovered, being a skilled actor when he feels like it, he was living under the alias Alan and was residing in a poor village with young children as his friends. He would later be revealed to be a doll created three millennia ago by the original Gowther, a sorcerer who was Fraudrin's predecessor in the Ten Commandments as the Commandment of Selflessness. Gowther was found in the present in the Cellar of Liones Castle, by Princess Nadja, the sister of Batra when he was still a prince whom he fell in love with. While Nadaj returned the sentiment, she was dying of an illness and passed away while making love to Gowther. Gowther attempted to revive her with his magic heart, a charm that he was told gives him his emotions, but it failed to resurrect her while making it appeared that he sadistically murdered her. Gowther accepted the blame out of guilt, branded with his Sin while discarding his magic heart to render himself emotionless to no longer feel the pain of losing Nadaj. It was only learning that King and Diane were searching for his magic heart that Gowther learned it was a placebo and begins accepting his emotions, allowing him be more sociable while using his full power without trouble.
Gowther's special ability is known as Invasion, a versatile mind-based ability projected from his fingertips as beams of purple, blue, or even black light that affect targets that they hit. Invasion allows him to read and acquire the thoughts, memories, and feelings of others in his vicinity. It also allows him to create illusions and memories to the victim powerful enough to beguile, manipulate, and immobilize them. It was used on a large group of opposing Holy Knights to make them believe that the Sins were their fellow companions/loved ones and thus cease fire; however, once the Holy Knights started to realize the inconsistencies in their memories, the effect wore off. It can also be used to take control of non-living beings, such as golems. Furthermore, it can be used as a tactical tool in combat, as he can project coordinated battle plans to all his allies almost instantaneously. His black light Invasion attacks seem to have the ability to render people that they hit unconscious instantly. As a doll, Gowther has shown a high level of resilience to attacks, ones that would have proven fatal to a normal human. These include: having his neck snapped, having a hole blown through his entire chest, and being decapitated. His sacred treasure is Herritt, which takes the form of twin bows made of light, one held in each hand. These bows seem to greatly enhance the spread and range of his attacks, but otherwise the full extent of their abilities remains unknown. As with Hock, he is equipped with a Balor Power Eye, which allows him to detect the overall fighting prowess of anyone in his vicinity.
