Makai Kingdom: Chronicles of The Sacred Tome - Characters - Overlords

Overlords

  • Lord Zetta (Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu English Voice: Crispin Freeman) - Lord Zetta is, in his own words, "the most badass freakin' Overlord in the cosmos". Though not too bright, Zetta makes up for his shortcoming with sheer power and attitude. (This is reflected ingame as he has the highest stats among the characters.) Even though he's gone through a major physical change, his personality hasn't really changed. Zetta later appears in Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories and in Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness as a hidden boss. In the DS remake of Afternoon of Darkness, the PSP remake of Cursed Memories (called Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days) and the PSP remake of Phantom Brave (called Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle), he's been confirmed as a playable character in his Sacred Tome form. As he has only made appearances outside of his own game in his Sacred Tome form (which is his most recognizable state), it is assumed that in Canon, he either never changed back (which breaks from the ending), or Trenia swapped places with him once more, or this takes place before the ending of Makai Kingdom. The last explanation seems to be the most possible one, as shortly after Zetta is recruited into the player's party in Disgaea DS, a mysterious character (heavily implied to be Pram) talks about losing a 'precious little plaything', which was the same term Pram used for Zetta in the Good Ending before acknowledging her own fault and respecting Zetta's feelings for Salome. However, he has appeared in his original form in Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten as a hidden boss, and after being defeated, joins the party. This marks the first time outside of Makai Kingdom that his original form is playable.
  • Pram the Oracle (Voiced by: Kaori Mizuhashi) English Voice: Amanda Winn-Lee) - Pram is the youngest Overlord in the cosmos, having managed to take over her father's Netherworld when she was only two. While she stands out for her ability to predict the future and her sheer level of power, it is said that she possesses another rare ability among the Overlords - Shapeshifting - though no one can truly verify this. Rumors say that she has only used it once. She is later referenced in Disgaea 2, appearing as the image for the Omega level Ice spell. She is the one who rewrote the tome and which caused the events of the game to unfold, though she later atones for what she does and helps Zetta in an attempt to bring Salome back but is cut down by Seedle. She apparently managed to survive somehow, as she was seen again in Zetta's castle along with Salome, Alex and Zetta at the end of the Good Ending, questioning whether the mysterious 'The One' was a fake. It is also revealed that she can't actually predict the future, but reads the Sacred Tome. She appears as a downloadable character in Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days, Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice and Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten, and as a downloadable boss in Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood!.
  • Dark Lord Valvoga - Dark Lord Valvoga is actually three Overlords in one, consisting of Micky the Demon General, Ophelia the Fallen Angel, and Dryzen the Star Dragon. Valvoga is often summoned to be the "last boss" in various video games. Micky forms the upper body, Dryzen forms the lower body in the form of a gigantic dragon skull with a glowing red orb within its mouth, and Ophelia forms herself into a head in a hole in Dryzen's skull, placing herself directly in the center of the "body". Valvoga as a whole serves as the image for the Tera Star Spell in Disgaea 2.
    • Micky (Voiced by: Tesshō Genda) - While Micky is technically the one in charge of the body, he is often manipulated by other Overlords, Dryzen and Ophelia in particular, because of his timidness. When he finally learns to stand up for himself and make his own decisions, his true form is unleashed, in a more compact, humanoid form.
    • Ophelia (Voiced by: Miki Narahashi) - Ophelia tends to be the "brains" behind any operation Valvoga does, and tends to be rather subtle in her manipulations. Whenever someone else tries to manipulate or pressure Micky, Ophelia steps in, though she is primarily doing it out of self-interest, as no one controls Valvolga but those who are part of Valvolga. At the end of the game she is revealed (in a very humorous scene at the end) to be the mysterious force in the game known as "The One", but of course nobody else in the game knows this.
    • Dryzen (Voiced by: Takashi Nagasako) - Dryzen bullies around Micky because it's fun, as well as when it benefits himself. Dryzen is massive and insane, with his most common statement tending to be little more than "Kill!".
  • Alexander the God of Destruction (Voiced by: Kenji Nojima) - Alexander is Zetta's chief rival. As Overlords constantly wish to expand, many Overlords attempt to conquer other Netherworlds, and Alex is no exception. Alex has attempted to take over Zetta's Netherworld hundreds of times, and employed over a thousand assassins, but none have yet succeeded. While Zetta considers this proof that he won, Alex claims that the fact that Zetta hasn't taken over his Netherworld is proof that the battle's been a draw, and that he can still kill off Zetta at any time. Even with Zetta being trapped in a book and his Netherworld destroyed, Alex continues to try and kill Zetta, in an attempt to claim the title of Strongest Overlord. He appears greatly upset when Zetta is cursed by "The One" and attempts to kill him before the curse does, but is stopped by Salome before he can go through with it. He appears later on in the game to see why Salome interrupted their fight but after hearing Seedle's story becomes disgusted with the Overlords and battles him himself while Zetta confronts Salome. Zetta refers to him as an "Asshat". Alexander later appears in Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories as a cameo appearance, appearing as the image of the Omega Level Wind Spell (as Lightning, his preferred element, is not present in Disgaea games). According to artwork, he has a little sister that has yet to be named.
  • Lady Salome (Voiced by: Ai Orikasa English Voice: Mary Elizabeth McGlynn) - Salome is Zetta's former apprentice who gave up her humanity to live in the Netherworld. Despite having immense power, she has an unnaturally small amount of Mana power, which creatures require to survive in the Netherworld, leaving her body to die slowly. However, she intends to keep this a secret from everyone - especially Lord Zetta. She fell in love with Zetta and vice versa; her wish was to only die in his hands. It turns out the reason why she had a low amount of mana was because, little by little, she kept transferring it all to Zetta which in turn made him the Overlord he was.
  • King Drake the Third (Voiced by: Norio Wakamoto) - King Drake the Third is a lion Overlord who considers himself to be the most charismatic of the Overlords, though most of the other Overlords just consider him an idiot. Despite his claims of being a great hero, Drake has no compunction with manipulating things to his own advantage, even taking advantage of an enemy when they're sleeping. He is, however, still powerful, as only powerful overlords are able to exist in the same space that the other Overlords spend time in. Drake is the game's 'silly character', even to the point that if you are to unlock him, his proficient weapons are odd, such as Pie. He appears as a downloadable character in Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice and is referenced by Pram in her downloadable event in Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days.
  • Demon Overlord Seedle (Voiced by: Shūichi Ikeda) - Demon Overlord Seedle is the Overlord of the Underworld (Making him the "Underlord"). Though he was once an honorable samurai, said to be a part of a party of Braves (a reference to Phantom Brave), the circumstances of his death left him filled with an unnatural fury, allowing him to force his way into becoming Overlord. In addition, he seems to hold an unknown link to Salome. Late in the game it is revealed that while he was still alive he was followed by a still alive Salome who he had become obsessed with. One night during their journey he forced himself on Salome but she stabbed him to death and fled. It is because of this that Seedle holds such hatred for Salome as being killed by a woman apparently left a large wound on Seedle's ego. He was apparently killed by Alex during the end of the game.
  • Dragon Overlord Babylon (Voiced by: Takeshi Aono) - The massive Dragon Overlord Babylon is the oldest Overlord in the cosmos and once ruled over it all. His wisdom and size gave him an advantage over almost everyone. He used to have near limitless mana power when he was younger, but he lost it all after he was cursed by a mysterious being known only as "The One". The strain of resisting the curse left him battered and a shadow of his former self. From there, he slowly wasted away over millennia, eventually becoming senile, forgetful, and half-blind. He does command some degree of respect from the other Overlords, even the egotistical Zetta. He has the ability to transform into a humanoid form, of which is usable by the player. In an extra map, Zetta can time travel back to when Babylon was in power, and can defeat him, earning his humanoid form. By this, it is revealed that it is Zetta himself who defeated, and took much of his power, making him 'The One', though this contrasts Ophelia's statement of her being the same being. It is hinted that Babylon's power loss was due to the psychological effects of him losing to an unnamed opponent (as he did not know who Zetta was when the latter travelled back in time to confront him, furthermore, he was already obsessing over The One before fighting Zetta), and that he never really lost his power, but rather became depressed after his defeat and allowed his powers to diminish.
