"A lone warlock, freed from years of imprisonment, stands against an army of destruction bent on world conquest and the resurrection of an ancient evil. But Dark Schneider is not protecting the desperate people of Meta-Rikan out of the goodness of his heart. After all, they were the ones who imprisoned him for leading this same army against their city the first time. However, he's not about to let his old army, his old generals, and his ex-girlfriend show him up. Besides, his new girlfriend is counting on him, and it's been a while since he had some fun."

A generation ago, an evil wizard and his four diabolical generals swept across the land, leaving destruction in their wake. Leading an army of titanic iron golems, orcs, lizard men, and other monsters, the might wizard Dark Schneider sought to conquer the world. But in the allied kingdoms' darkest hour, a group of heroes stepped forward to stop the invaders. One of them was the legendary Dragon Knight; another was Geo Noto Soto, the high priest of Metallicana. Performing the impossible, they slew Dark Schneider and bound his soul, so that only one man knew the secret of how to return him to life... Fourteen years later, the kingdom of Metallicana again finds itself under attack. As their citadel is besieged, the desperate defenders turn to a legend that a virgin's kiss may awaken the spirit of Dark Schneider, which is sealed within the body of Lucien, a seemingly normal 14-year-old boy! The chaotic, lecherous wizard is back - only barely restrained by the magic that forces him to obey his host body's teenage stepsister, the young princess Yoko! But a world of demons, dragons and his own evil ex-allies await the reborn magic-user, and the bloodstained kingdom may never know peace again!

A generation ago, an evil wizard and his four diabolical generals swept across the land, leaving destruction in their wake until he was slain by the legendary Dragon Knight. Fifteen years later, the kingdom of Metallicana finds themselves under attack by the armies of the surviving generals, now known as the Four Divine Kings, servants of the dark god Anthrasax. With nowhere else to turn, the desperate defenders turn to a legend that a virrgin's kiss may awaken the long-dead wizard himself: "Dark Schneider," once the most feared man in existence, now (more or less) serving the forces of good. Tia Noto Yoko, the only one who can control Dark Schneider, has been captured by the Dark Rebel Armies! After making their way through a perilous dungeon, D.S. and Princess Sheila face the wizard's old ally Ninja Master Gara in a duel that pits sword against magic! Far away, news of D.S.'s resurrection reaches the long ears of Arshes Nei, the elven sorceress who was once his pupil and lover - and now commands an army of her own. Remembering past injustices at the hands of the egomaniacal (and two-timing) magic-user, she sends her deadliest assassins to bring her Dark Schneider's severed head!

People just can't keep their hands off Dark Schneider - their sword-wielding, knife-toting, deadly assassin's hands, that is. Leaving the besieged kingdom of Metallicana, the mighty wizard goes travelling alone with only Lars the dragon for company - but finds himself under constant attack as his former lover Arshes Nei, now one of the leaders of the Dark Army of Chaos, sends her strongest underlings to kill him! Will it be Kai Harn, the fighter? Or will death come in the form of the Vampire Di-Amon? At the worst possible time, Dark Schneider turns back into his helpless alter ego, the pathologically wimpy Lucien Renlen ... and Yoko, his teenage stepsister, may be the only one who can save him!
