Dage the Evil is a character in AdventureQuest Worlds.
Dage the Evil was once a King and a power-mad necromancer who signed Nulgath's contract and rode the fast lane to even more strength. Eventually the time came for Dage the Evil (like all others before him) to pay for the contract that Nulgath gave him. Dage used his knowledge to bind part of his soul to an armor of his construct. The remnant lives on in that armor and still remembers its past life.
At some point, Dage the Evil faced off against the lich Vilkas Blightbringer when they were searching for the Book of Dark Doors in Ravenscar. Attracted to Rand's rage at the attack caused by Blightbringer's undead army, Dage the Evil offered him a deal to get rid of Blightbringer. When Rand defeats Shadowman and gains access to Blightbringer's lair, he manages to slay Blightbringer and gain the green ball of energy that came from Blightbringer. Not wanting Rand to be his latest competitor, Dage the Evil turns Rand into an undead while absorbing Rand's soul into his body. In addition, Dage the Evil has made Rand the first soldier of his Undead Legion.
After reality is restored from the alternate timeline caused by Drakath, Nulgath and Dage the Evil catch up to the group as Gravelyn tells them, Sally, and Noxus that the Shadowscythe Army will hunt down Drakath and make him pay for what he did to Sepulchure.
Dage the Evil later goes to war against Nulgath. Dage is served by his general Rogath, his mad scientist Laken, the Blade Master, and Undead Legend. Dage's army consists of Skeletal Warriors, Skull Warriors, Undead Infantries, Undead Bruisers, and Legion Fenrirs. Dage the Evil managed to secure the Oblivion Gate and traps Nulgath in the peaceful part of the Underworld. Nulgath claims that Dage the Evil unknowingly left him a gift as he begins his next plot.
Dage the Evil sends his chef Goredon Rampage into infiltrating Battleon's Harvest Day event and cooking up a meal that would enable his Undead Legion to harvest the souls of the poisoned. Despite the players defeating Goredon Rampage and his Abomineator form, Dage the Evil was successful in his plot.
When the Frozen Flame that contains the soul of a powerful queen who was cast aside by Dage the Evil is thrown into the Fotia Volcano, it releases the soul as it plans to have revenge on Dage the Evil. Traveling through the Fields of Asphodel, it becomes Scoern starts causing all the female souls to chant "Dage Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorn." The players had to fight the Judges of the Underworld (consisting of Rhadamanthys, Minos, and Aeacus) in order to get admittance to Dage the Evil's fortress. Once that was done, the players learn that Scorn is in Dage the Evil's fortress turning many of Dage the Evil's minions on the player. Upon Scorn escaping following the players defeating Grrberus, the players meet with Dage the Evil as they plan to capture Scorn.
Dage the Evil learns from his servant Envy that the players have arrived at the Order of the Seraphic Paladins. During this time, the Undead Legion had infiltrated the Order of Seraphic Paladins due to Adventus' dealings with Dage the Evil. When the players defeat Adventus, he escapes out the window only to be confronted by Laken who disposes of Adventus and infiltrates the Order of the Seraphic Paladins on Dage the Evil's behalf while claiming to have defected. Dage the Evil is shown to have ownership of the Forgotten Tomb as the players are sent to steal the Dark Shard that contains Dage the Evil's soul fragment which are watched over by his minions Brutus and Vincenzo. Envy later stole the Dark Shard and captured Darkon.
When the players are also captured after fighting her, Envy plans to overthrow Dage the Evil and take over the Undead Legion. When Ava knocks out Envy and frees the players and Darkon, Envy assumes the form of the Queen of Envy where she is defeated. Upon the players and Ada claiming the Dark Shroud following Darkon getting badley wounded, J6 shoots the chains that ties the Queen of Fury to Dage the Evil and orders the players and Ava to flee as he has Darkon initiate Protocol 6 which destroys the Queen of Envy's lair.
A full-armored Laken from an alternate future arrives in the present and enlists the players and Dage the Evil into helping him in the alternate future where Future Dage has reunited his soul, eliminated Nulgath, and taken over all of Lore wih his army of undead soldiers who have cybernetics grafted to them. The players and Dage the Evil help Laken fight SF3017 Blades, SF3017 Gunners, UW3017 Blasters, and UW3017 Gunners. After infiltrating the bunker and claiming the souls to the portal from Commander Agravh, Commander Uslaw, Commander Ozar, and Commander Pavon, Dage the Evil uses them to activate the portal in order to take them to Future Dage's Legion Dreadnought. After the players defeat the Legionator, Dage the Evil absorbs it's soul. Future Dage finds out about what happen and sends his army of SF3017 Paragonators and SF3017 ProtoBlasters led by SF3017 Shogun. After besting SPF3017, the players and Dage the Evil fight Future Dage. Afterwards, Laken and Dage the Evil seal Future Dage's soul into Future Dage's sword.
Dage the Evil later took the players to the Void Vault to obtain his soul and his contract. Upon gaing the services of a Void Minion named Zep, he guides the players and Dage the Evil through the Void where they search for Dage the Evil's soul and his contract so that Dage the Evil can be free of Nulgath. The players had to fight Void Elemental #2, Void Knights, Void Makai, and Void Monks. After besting Void Wyrm, the players and Dage the Evil find the other half of Dage the Evil's soul amongst the Wandering Souls. After the players make their way to the library area and find Dage the Evil's contract, Zep assumes his true form of Zeph'gorog to prevent the players from making off with it. With help from Dage the Evil, the players fight Zeph'gorog and defeat him. Not wanting to go down the path of Future Dage, Dage the Evil spares Zeph'gorog's life as he and the players plan to reclaim the Dark Shard from Laken.
After the players defeat the Core Guardian at the sight of the World Soul, Dage the Evil arrives with Rayce and the rest of his soldiers where he seeks to take the Dark Shard from Laken and not go down a dark path. This drives Laken insane as he plots to lead the Order of the Seraphic Paladins into attacking. When the players defeat Supercharged Laken, the war event shows two different endings:
When the players defeat Laken, Dage the Evil claims the weaponized Dark Shard. Ada goes to Laken's side as he declines being healed since most of him is already gone. Before dying, he tells Ada to remember what he taught her. After Laken dies and his soul splits into two before disappearing, Ada vows to have revenge on the players and Dage the Evil.
After Laken was badly wounded, Ada cuts a a deal with Rayce to save his life. Rayce does that by exchanging Ada's soul for Laken's soul which results in Ada dying and Laken being healed. Laken blames the players and Dage the Evil for her death. After leaving the weaponized Dark Shard for the players while planning revenge, Dage the Evil claims the weaponized Dark Shard and claims that Nulgath no longer has power over him.
Dage the Evil was later contacted by Malgor for an alliance to bring peace to Lore so that no more fighting can occur. Due to his previous experience in the future, Dage the Evil turned him down. This caused Malgor to send a bunch of Shadows into the Underworld while swaying the strategist Underfiend to his side as well as creating some Legion Defectors. The players also obtained some flame from the Frozen Pyromancer in order to cleanse the souls of the fallen. The players were able to defeat Underfiend. Before being killed by Dage the Evil, Underfiend states that familiar characters are joining the battle. Malgor next cut a deal with Nulgath to retake the Underworld with an army of Shadow Makai, Shadow Voids, and Shadowblades. Nulgath then corrupted the Soul Forge with Malgor's shadows. With help from Frozen Pyromancer, the players obtained the Underflame from the Underflame Guardian to relight the Soul Forge. Nulgath then attacked the players as Shadowflame Nulgath. When the players defeat Shadowflame Nulgath enough to regress him back to Nulgath, he saw that Malgor plans to bring about his peace by also destroying the Underworld and the Void. This causes Dage the Evil and Nulgath to put aside their differences for now in order to deal with Malgor's forces.
In the Mirror Realm, Dage the Evil is Dage the Good who has become the undisputed champion of all things good and noble ever since the archangel Nulgath was sucked into an alternate dimension while trying to seal a rift.
