Despite his short amount of appearances in the soap, he is considered by many fans to be among the most evil and most dangerous villains to have ever appeared in Days of our Lives, next to Stefano DiMera and his son Andre DiMera.
Orpheus was a former ISA agent and a marksmen. He was trained and disciplined by the ISA a long side Roman Brady. He was Roman Brady's former ISA partner. Despite the life he was in he was still able to find true love and get married to a woman named Rebecca and have two children with her, a boy and a girl. In 1979, he and Roman were out on an ISA Mission against the KGB when things went wrong. Orpheus's wife, Rebecca came to where Roman and Orpheus were to try and warn them about a KGB ambush. Gunfire was all around. Roman heard footsteps. He called out for the person to identify themselves and when nothing came, he fired in the direction of the footsteps, thinking it was an approaching KGB agent. To Roman's horror, he had accidentally shot and killed Orpheus's wife, Rebecca and left his children without a mother. Orpheus then resigned from the ISA and started planning his revenge on Roman Brady for what he felt was the deliberate, cold-blooded killing by Roman of his wife.
- Genius-level intellect: Orpheus is considered to be one of the most brilliant and most dangerous villain to ever appear on "Days" next to Stefano DiMera and Andre DiMera. His intellect was his greatest weapon, he was always one step ahead of his enemies. He spent several years planning his revenge on the Brady family for the death of his wife. Blaming them for her death, Orpheus left his job as an ISA agent and dedicated his entire life in getting revenge on Roman Brady and his family. When he began his quest for revenge he was always ready for anything that might happen. He made sure Roman Brady would suffer deeply, both emotionally and physically. He successfully faked the death of his wife, Marlena and had made sure no one would find out the truth for a number of months. Through his action, he was deemed a dangerous terrorist and an enemy of his former allies, the ISA. In addition, he successfully faked his death without drawing any suspicions from his enemies. Decades later, in his old age, he was still as keen and dangerous as ever. He spent years learning of the people of Salem making sure he knew about the daily lives of his enemies during his time in prison. When he escaped and began his second quest for revenge on his enemies, he proved to be as smart as he was back in the day. He and his allies made the entire population in Salem go in widespread panic, through a televised terrorist threat video and just by shooting the Mayor. Also he had set up number of bombs all over Salem in which it injured a huge number of people. Orpheus always left a back up plan for when after he was caught and he was arrested in the Salem P.D., he successfully faked his death to escape incarceration. In his final effort of his revenge he tried to burn both Marlena Evans and Kayla Brady alive in coffins, a plot which he would have succeeded had Andre DiMera not told Steve Johnson and the rest of the Salem P.D. his location.
- Master strategist, tactician, and manipulator: Orpheus is an extraordinary strategist and tactician due to his many years of experience in the ISA and through his decades of criminal activities. He had learned patience for revenge through several years of planning. When he began his quest for revenge he was always ready for anything that might happen. In addition, he successfully faked his death without drawing any suspicions from his enemies. Decades later, in his old age, he was still as keen and dangerous as ever.

- Pain Tolerance: In 1987, he was able to survive death, despite being shot in point blank. Decades later, he has proven that he is still tolerant towards gun shot wounds as he survived through the gun shot done by John Black.
- Love for his Children: Perhaps Orpheus' only known weakness was his love for his children, as it made him predictable. For Marlena was able to understand how his mind worked through her past with Orpheus and of how he wanted her to become his children's mother.
