Destroyer of the World
Shadar (Jobo in the Japanese version) is one of the main antagonists in Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. He is an evil wizard who can interfere with an individual's heart, causing them to become Brokenhearted. Shadar can choose to fill their people's hearts with negative & depressing emotions or leave them with a lack of self-worth.
Shadar is the Soul Mate to Oliver, the protagonist of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. Before the events of the game Shadar, then called Lucien, was part of a foreign army tasked with killing women and children in an unnamed village. However, Lucien couldn't commit himself to such a dark task and when the time came to pillage the villagers, he stood by and let it happen. However, he saved the live of a the Great Sage's daughter, who would later turn out to be the Great Sage Alicia.
After he was dismissed from the army for disobeying direct orders, he wondered around the world, coming to the conclusion the world lacked any kindness and was a world full of despair. It was when he came to this conclusion, the White Witch approached him and gave him the title of Dark Djinn and tasked him with destroying the world.
Sometime later, Alicia tried to stop Shadar's plans on destroying the world. When she confronted Shadar about a method she had to defeat him, but going to the Other World and confronting his Soul Mate, he revealed that he had since long killed his Soul Mate in anticipation that that weakness would be used against him. By destroying his own Soul Mate Shadar was able to achieve immortality. Unbenowst to Shadar, however, was the fact that a Soul can be reborn. Leaving Shadar with hat knowledge, Alicia cast the spell Bend Time, sending her into the future. It is in this future that she gave birth to Oliver in the other world, bringing back Shadar's Soul Mate.
Before she left for the future Shadar captured her memory in the Soul Snare, using it as bait to mae Oliver think that he had Alicia, whom he presumed to be his real mothers Soul Mate, and therefore bringing Oliver to the world of Ni no Kuni.
