Deneb is an Imagin fully contracted to Garrett Megg and aids him as Kamen Rider Minos both in & outside battles.
Acting against Kai, Deneb formed a contract with Garrett, gaining a physical form within normal space-time due to Garrett's wish to have the Imagin aid his past self. Aiding both Garrets, Deneb aided them in keeping Kai distracted from learning of his actual target. But when Dwayne began to realize Garrett's presence in the past, he & Deneb reveal themselves to discourage the youth from ruining their distraction.
He also acts as a parental figure to Garrett, doing his best to make sure he lives healthy, including a need to serve dishes with mushrooms to him, despite Garrett's deep hatred towards it (& usually resulting in a comical beating). Due to the fact he has a physical form in normal space-time, Deneb often appears in (poorly constructed) disguises in order to avoid standing out. At one point, Deneb accidentally caused Garrett to waste his second to last ticket. He decided to stop being a burden to Garrett & offers his services to Dwayne, but it took Dwayne & Jack Taros' words to convince him to return to Garrett.
After Garrett uses his final card, Deneb feels at ease that Garrett wouldn't need to suffer the side effects anymore. That was until the future Garrett comes with a new Minos Card & a full card holder. Deneb drives the man out with intent not to have Garrett suffer again, but is forced to allow Garrett to use them when he wants to. While Garrett is negated from time momentarily, history is rewritten such that Deneb is contracted to Dwayne, but is confined in the ElectroLiner like the Tarōs Brothers, during which he serves as the cook & takes Megan's position in keeping the Tarōs Brothers in line (with a noticeably more gentle approach).
When Garrett returns & assumes Zero Form, Deneb is alongside him as the Denebick Buster, to which he finds to be a surprise. However, when he finds out that he completely forgot about Garrett when he was erased from time, he is horrified & breaks down in tears. Deneb decides to make sure no one forgets Garrett by possessing him at night & passing out Deneb Candy to passers-by. However, Deneb learns the hard way that his actions do more harm than good when a young girl he befriends ends up inadvertently creating a contract with an Imagin.
Since then, Deneb pledges to Garrett that regardless of the circumstances, he will fight alongside him until the very end. But when the time does come, it turns out his adventure with Garrett created a time lag, allowing him to maintain his existence as he takes leave in the Mino-Liner, returning to aid the ElectroLiner crew during the events of "The Final Countdown" before a fully healed Garrett joins it. Deneb then returns with Garrett to investigate Nega Taros by posing as crooks themselves. Soon after, Deneb tries to get Garrett & himself to join the ElectroLiner Police.
Personality and Abilities
Being the opposite of Garrett, Deneb serves as his butler & comrade in battle. Though his intentions are noble, Deneb usually causes embarrassing consequences for Garrett, who comically beats him up for it. Although Garrett treats him with occasional disrespect; Deneb chooses to stand by his side out of friendship & loyalty, knowing Garrett to be a kind person. Due to the fact he has a physical form in normal space-time, Deneb often appears in (poorly constructed) disguises in order to avoid standing out. He carries around a basket that contains hand-made candies that have wrappers that bear his face called "Deneb Candy", which are made from milk, honey, & sweet melon. In a fight, Deneb is able to shoot bullets out of his fingertips that range from attacking an enemy to smoke pellets.
Due to Deneb's limited interaction with the Tarōs Brothers, he does not have names for them. However, Deneb is also the only Imagin other than Krack Taros to call Jack Taros by his actual name as opposed to a nickname.

Vega Form is the form of Minos that comes from being possessed by the Imagin Deneb. It is named after the star Vega in the constellation Lyra the Lyre. It has a series of cannons on its shoulders called the Zeronos Nova. In the process of transforming into Vega Form, Deneb's body makes up various aspects of the form: his face is on Vega Form's chest, his hands form the Zeronos Nova, & his cloak becomes the cape. The "mask" is made up of a spool of thread, as Vega is a weaver, that opens up into a star shape. Vega Form is physically stronger than Altair Form, although suffers a loss of speed & overall agility. Whenever Deneb possesses Garrett to assume Vega Form, he says "I'll tell you this for starters…", following with a honest fact that annoys both the opponent & Garrett. Vega Form is accessed for the last time during the final battle, playing a part in the destruction of the Death Imagin, although Garrett assumes the form once more in the fight against Nega Taros.
New Electric King
Vega Form is the form of New Electric King that first appears in The Demon Island Battleship. Henry allows Deneb to possess him & use his abilities, his ElectroKamen made up of a spool of thread much like Minos' Vega Form, & his armor also has Deneb's face on the torso. The only difference from Minos' Vega Form is that his suit is colored dark blue & instead of the Minos Belt, he has the NEW Electric King Belt. In this state, New Electric King can use his ElectroGasher in Naginata Mode. This form is assumed automatically following Deneb's possession of Henry, due to having no corresponding button featured on the NEW Electric King Belt.
The Denebick Buster is a weapon that Deneb is able to transform into when Minos is in Zero Form. The sides of the barrel have gold-colored versions of the Minos Nova attached to Deneb's face. Deneb can talk through this form. The barrel & the blade of the MinoGasher Crossbow Mode can be interchanged, allowing Zero Form to dual-wield guns.
- Deneb's physical form is based on the historical story of Benkei & Karasu-Tengu.
- He is named after the star Deneb in the constellation Cygnus the Swan which is important in the legend of the Tanabata, as Deneb serves as the connection between lovers Hikoboshi (Altair) & Orihime (Vega) while they are across from each other in the Milky Way.
- "Altair" & "Vega" are also the names of the two forms that Minos can initially access.
