!!Gwenchaos
Leader of the Gerxel cult, and the BigBad of the game. He wishes to revive the Dark God. In the final chapter you learn there's a bit more to him than that... [[spoiler: he was once one of the contenent's famed 6 Sages, and married to one of the chief priests of the Temple of Earth. Unfortunately, during a great war the cruel king forced her to take the form of a Saint Dragon and essentially become a bioweapon. She did, but something went wrong, [[FaceMonsterTurn she lost her mind, and became unable to change back.]] Unable to stop herself slaughtering innocents, she was exiled to the remote mountains and grew to be feared as the Demon Dragon. Over the years many came to slay this 'beast', and none succeeded, but Gwenchaos was watching the entire time. Seeing the brutality shown to one who was once so innocent, Gwen lost his faith in humanity and decided to let the Dark God Gerzel posess his body, both so he could purge humanity and so he could be with his wife for eternity...]]
