  • Black Knight
  • Defector from Decadence: Except not really.

  • Punch Clock Villain: After he betrays you, he's basically just fighting for his country, he's just oblivious to the fact that their army mostly consists of evil sorcerers... He also genuinely loves his sister (who happens to be The Dragon), and it turns out her love for him is her main motivation.
  • So Long, and Thanks for All the Gear: Averted. He's nice enough to leave his entire inventory in your storage when he leaves.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Kate
  • Too Awesome to Use: Interesting variation: he's very useful for what little time you have him, but he keeps the stats he had when he left when he returns as an enemy. Rely on him too much and he can easily become That One Boss.

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, 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...
