The Prince Seda assumed the throne upon his father's death, on the night of his coronation he met a woman named Sophia and began a relationship with her. However Seda was quickly thrown into battle against West Terra, the enemy had a powerful wizard who brought East Terra to their knees. It was during the fighting Seda met a traveller who could help him turn the tides against the West, by mixing his own blood with that of witches he could attain great power. After the infusion, he did gain immense power and was able to repel the enemy. After the battle, he was greeted by Sophia who turned out to be a fake, a disguise used by an assassin to take his life. The real Sophia intervened and saved Seda's life. Enraged, Seda slain the assassin, however his emotions gave birth to the being known as the Dark Genie. From there, his own kingdom was laid to ruin by the same power he once held.

The Genie is a creature of the void with a matching personality. It is cold and calculating creature, confident in its abilities though not without good reason.
Although the Dark Genie claims to have no true physical form, the form he chooses to portray himself as has three eyes, and only the top half can be seen. It seems to have scruffy long hair and has eyes on the back of its hands that change color. It also has large wings that sprout from its backside that also look like hands. When Toan defeats it, it changes form and turns into a spider-like creature with a white orb in its mouth, which is his weak point.
