Emperor Belos is a mysterious witch in The Owl House. He rules over the Boiling Isles and lives there in his palace. He is protected by the Emperor's Coven. Belos's staff is a version of the standard Witch's Staff - it has a red glow when it is using and does not require spell circles to use its magic, needed only to be held aloft before activating.
