Beerus is the god of destruction for universe 7. He looks a little like a cat and prefers sleeping most of the time. However, despite his easygoing personality and appearance, he is extremely powerful.
Power-wise, Beerus is considered the strongest god of destruction among the current 12.
As most fans know, gods of destruction, unlike the angels, are capable of dying. This indicates that once a god dies, the angel searches for a replacement. In this way, Beerus was also probably a replacement for the previous god of destruction of the universe.
It is never officially mentioned in the anime or manga just how long Beerus has been a god of destruction. It is however mentioned that Belmod, the god of destruction for universe 11 has been one for around 267,974 years.
This gives an idea of how long a god of destruction generally stays in that particular position.
In addition to that, according to some unofficial sources, Beerus is said to be a god of destruction for over 75 million years. He is quite possibly the oldest god of destruction.
He is perhaps the oldest among the gods with the exception of his brother Champa, as they are the same age and it is quite possible that they became gods at the same time.
This is how long Beerus has been a god of destruction. This also explains why he is considered the strongest among the existing 12.
