Now this is a story
All about how my life
Got twisted upside down
And I'd like to take a minute
Just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the Black Mage

In west Mysidia
Born and raised
Academy o' Magic's where I spent
Most of my days
Chilling out, maxing
And casting all cool
And all shooting some Fireball
Outside of school
When a couple of guys
They were out to do good
Started fightin' crime in our neighborhood
I killed one or two classmates, and the Dean got scared
She said your exiled
To the Kingdom of Cornelia

And so followed the events of 8-Bit Theater.


Since his body is made up of chaotic energy, Chaos' death has resulted in the normally fat Black Mage to become frail and thin. The robes he wears hang off his form as if worn by a skeleton. He wears blue robes and a light brown wizard's hat. The what allows him to maintain his humanoid form. Removing it causes Mage to turn into a weak wisp, as he is essentially a Chaos Elemental and Chaos is permenantly gone. His typing is Dark/Psychic in normal form, and Dark/Ghost in wisp form. He is weak and easily taken down in his current state, needing help from his Pokemon to even walk more than a few feet.

In a wheelchair.


Black Mage is easily angered and vengeful. If he percieves someone as an enemy, he will stop whenever he can to make their life a living hell. On the flip side, due to his soul being balanced out by a wish from one of the Flying Walrus' miracle candies, Mage has become increasingly loyal to allies. He also strongly advocates freedom of choice for those who ally themselves with him. With the destruction of Chaos, much of the god's hate, anger, and capriciousness that fueled his magic are no longer influencing him, and he is in better control of his previously wild emotions and whims.


With the destruction of Chaos, Mage has lost access to his black magic, Chaos being the source of its power. Despite the loss of his main power source, Mage remains a nexus of chaos magic, and Special-based Dark or Ghost moves may be learned when he is struck with them. Only a maximum of four moves can be kept at a time.

Mage is not able to use knives or other melee weapons effectively in his weakened state.
