Sir Vatone, renamed Lord Valoth, also known as the Dark Ruler is an evil human.
He was once a great knight of Bladehaven and King Timascus. After Princess Nadine went missing, he went with his knights to search for her, none of them returned. Then one of many Sir Vatone's knights tells that they all were slaughtered in their quest.
The tables were turned once Alden found him alive in Mount Fouldoom with a different appearance and a dragon. The squire remembered him as Sir Vatone who told him that he is now known as Lord Valoth which he prefers it more than being called Sir Vatone and told the squire that he simply led his army to trap. Lord Valoth ordered his dragon to get rid of the king, but the dragon didn't succeed, the squire slayed him and earned the Name of Legends; Sir Alteon. Lord Valoth sent his army of minions all across the land to battle the king but Sir Alteon went off to stand against the army - alone - wave-by-wave, to protect the king and Bladehaven since he is the only remaining knight. This challenge is known as Survival Mode.
