|~ Zarok atop Cemetery Hill|
A century before the game begins, it is believed that Sir Daniel Fortesque succesfully killed Zarok during a war against an army of demons he had created (it was made up on the king's part). Zarok had survived the battle however, and returned to exact revenge, bringing the dead to back to life with his magic to aid him. Unfortunately for him, he unknowingly brought his old nemesis back from the grave as well. Zarok was eventually defeated by Fortesque. His spellbook fell into the hands of another powerhungry sorcerer 500 years later.
Zarok is vain, narcissistic, and obsessed with power, control, and authority. Despite his camp behavior and effeminate appearance, he is extremely tough and fearless. However, in medievil 2, he was implied to be a coward.
