|“||These skeletal figures are undead priests devoted to chaos. All 4 of his monstrous arms are tools of obliteration. When he's not hacking you to pieces, he fires energy projectiles similar to those of the Wrath. Jump back into the crib, you're not ready for this.||”|
The Overlord is the leader of the Wrath and possibly the replacement for Armagon as head of Quake's forces. After Shub-Niggurath's death, the Overlord captures some of Earth's technology and builds a time machine so he can alter world history. Warriors from Earth attempted to stop him but they are possessed by the Overlord and turned into Quake's Guardians. Around the same time, Ranger arrives in the new reality after defeating Armagon and starts one final journey to destroy the Overlord and his pet dragon. The Overlord resides in his tomb which is last level of the first episode of Dissolution of Eternity. The Overlord is the first boss enemy of the game and final challenge for Episode 1: Hell's Fortress. The Overlord returns in Episode 2: The Corridors of Time because the player is back in time and has to confront him again.
This robed skeletal figure ominously floats with the environment. His attack is a ball of energy which tracks the player and detonates on impact.
Launches a red energy ball which homes in on the player much like the Vore's attack.
Mace and Axe
A melee attack when the player gets too close.
- During the fight at the end of episode 1, the Overlord has respawning Wraths to back him up. He can also teleport around the room making it more difficult to kill him. Since the Wrathballs home in on the player, constantly moving will only help slightly so the best defense is to go a full, merciless offense. Since this is the end of the Episode 1: Hell's Fortress, there is no need to save ammo and so unload everything you have (Plasma and Quad-Rockets work best) to kill this beast before he and his minions kill you.
