|~ Minecraft Dungeons Opening Cinematic|
The Arch-Illager is the main antagonist of Minecraft Dungeons.
After a scouting party was slaughtered by a Hero, Archie was forced to take the blame and was hence exiled from his home amongst the Illagers. He arrived in Squid Coast and temporarily lived with them despite the initial rejection, only to have another scuffle with the same head-strong Hero, leading to him being driven out of that village as well.
Archie eventually stumbled upon a mountain cave, where he discovered the Orb of Dominance, which had beckoned him towards it since he left Squid Coast. He took it and became corrupted by it, ascending to the title of Arch-Illager and gaining immense power over his people. After a first attempt to raid Squid Coast, his army was forced to flee and Archie was captured by undead mobs, getting brought back to the Desert Temple, where he met the Nameless One. They came to an agreement to work together, where the Nameless One would provide his undead army in assisting Archie's conquest, while Archie would provide them protection from the daylight. This worked well and a little bit of extra planning, Archie was able to successfully raid Squid Coast and capture its people, causing the Hero that had caused him so much trouble to flee, although he did gain the attention of the remaining Heroes living on the island.
As the heroes made their way through the island, drawing closer to the Arch-Illager's home, Archie sought to capture the Nameless One's staff so he could summon the undead armies personally instead of relying on the skeletal necromancer. The Heroes stopped this plot however, destroying the staff as well as destroying his forge in which he created the Redstone Golems.
After being defeated within his keep, the Orb of Dominance became overwhelmed and unleashed its power, taking full control of Archie and unleashing the Heart of Ender. Once again, the Heroes had to beat him, shattering the orb in the process. The orb's shards eventually came together before flying off to different islands, creating all new threats that had to be stopped.
