In actual gameplay he's quite effective, being basically a mage with higher-than-usual stats and a few unique leader abilities.

** Even without the Demon Path, which you really have to go through to really experience [[spoiler: to put a bit more perspective, the bad endings in the Disgaea games, the Demon Path is like those the entire game apart from the good ending]], the main story is still way darker than anything Nippon Ichi made before. Pretty much every villain in the plot is a KnightOfCerebus, there's no NoFourthWallJokes outside of a gag ending with Asagi, the flashy special attacks are a lot less over the top, and there's constant points of mass murder.
