Count Marzo - Evil Master of Magic
Real Name: Marzo Kalif
A fifth degree wizard raised by evil mystics in the Dunes of Doom, Marzo spent most of his early life learning the many advantages of magic over technology. Seeing the suffering of warriors in the Dark Hemisphere, Marzo became convinced that Eternia would be better off with him as its leader. He staged a series of strategic uprisings across the planet and challenged King Miro for his crown. Unable to defeat the King's army, Marzo used his magical amulet to banish Miro to another dimension. In their father's absence, Miro's royal sons heroically joined together and defeated the wizard, trapping him in the form of a powerless, old man.
Marzo planned to travel across Eternia and cause riots and chaos in Eternian villages as a way to loure the Eternian royal guard and eliminate the Masters in order to eventually defeat Miro. As Marzo's efforts were continually stopped, he managed to sneak into the Royal Palace and confront King Miro in a battle which led to Miro being banished into another dimension with his magical amulet.
Upon hearing of their father's disappearence, Princes Randor and Keldor planned to seek justice against Marzo and seeked guidence from the Council of Elders. During their battle with Marzo, Keldor unleashed the magic of the Elders onto Marzo which sentenced him to live a life of a powerless elderly man and his amulet of power was banished to the deepest depths of Eternia.
