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...
