Servant of Evil
Akuno-P is the mastermind behind the publication of this Vocaloid hit “Servant of Evil”, released on April 29, 2008. The song is the second installment on the Story of Evil album, and acts as a type of reaction song to its predecessor, “The Daughter of Evil.”
In the song “Servant of Evil”, the events described take place in a kingdom called Lucifenia – where the main character, Allen Avadonia, is working as a servant for Princess Riliane. Through the lyrics, he tells the listeners that he is actually the princess’ twin brother, though they were separated as children for “selfish adult reasons.” He guarantees that he will always stay by her side – even when everyone in the kingdom turns against her.
One day, Allen decides to pay a visit to the Elphegort nation, and while he is there, he meets Michaela and immediately has a crush on her. On the other hand, prince Kyle Marlon – Rilliane’s crush – also developed feelings for Michaela. Rilliane is envious of her, and she wants her brother, Allen, to kill Michaela. Even though Allen has promised that he will always fulfill Rilliane’s dream, he can’t stop the tears streaming down his face as he stabs Michaela.
Due to Rilliane’s cruelty, people get angrier, to the point that there is the Luciferian Revolution that determines to take her down. To save his sister, Allen convinces her to swap clothes with him, telling her that since they are a pair of identical twins, nobody would realize that they have exchanged clothes.
In the end, Rilianne manages to get away, while Allen is caught and publicly executed in her place. His last words before passing away are, “Sister, if I could be reincarnated, I would want to see you again.”
