Emperor Cloyd is a recurring antagonist in Disenchantment. He is the uncharismatic ruler of the Empire of Maru which is served by his older sister, Becky the Enchantress. He is also the younger brother of Dagmar, the older brother of Jerry, and the maternal uncle of the Princess Bean. Both he and Becky are killed by Dagmar and Bad Bean at the of the series after Dagmar feels that they are no longer useful for her anymore.

Appearance[]

Cloyd's clothing looks like magick ceremonial attire. He wears a purple robe with a mixture of layers, a mushroom symbol with an eye (a recurring symbol) on a band around his neck, and a masonic apron (the shape that looks like "M" might be for "Maru". He also wears thick-rimmed glasses.

In "The Pitter-Patter of Little Feet", he transfers his consciousness into a wooden puppet.

Behaviour[]

Along with the Enchantress (his sister), Cloyd is responsible for the invention of the Infernal Amplifier potion which they used in the Destruction of Cremorrah. The powerful pair are also responsible for the "demonic binding" of Luci with Bean (his niece), in order to bring her to the "darkness".

History[]

Cloyd and Becky have been in leagues with their older sister Queen Dagmar since childhood.

After destroying Cremorrah, Cloyd and the Enchantress appear to want to destroy Dreamland too along with Dagmar. 15 years prior to the start of the series, Dagmar already tried to assassinate King Zøg, which backfired on her and she ended up bein petrified. Cloyd and Becky however continued her work. In A Princess, an Elf, and a Demon Walk Into a Bar, they send Luci as a wedding gift to Bean in an attempt to corrupt her, and spy on her every move using the Oracle Fire.

They never leave Maru and only first meet Bean in person in The Disenchantress after Dagmar has been revived from her petrification and takes Bean with her to Maru. There, the three reveal their plan to have Bean wear the ritual crown as part of their plan to unlock the magic of Dreamland. Bean however manages to escape them and in the process seemingly kills Cloyd by dropping a heavy wooden cabinet on top of him, and then causes a huge explosion in the room Cloyd was last seen in when she drops a candle in combustable liquid.

Cloyd survives however. He appears next in Goon Baby Goon, where it is revealed he and Becky took over Dreamland while Bean and Zog were both gone. They use the arms of Prudence to turn the citizens of Dreamland into their loyal subjects named Goons. Bean and Zog are able to defeat the two and force them to flee the castle. To continue their work in secret, the two head for the local ventriloquist dummy store and transfer their consciousness into two wooden puppets. This allows them to enter the castle unseen. They team up with Freckles and capture Bean and Zog, but the two escape with help of Lucy and Elfo. Bean chases the now puppet Cloyd and Becky deeper into the castle, but is forced to give up the chase when they enter a tunnel that is too narrow for her.

In "Spy Vs. Spy Vs. Spy", they try to capture Luci in a bottle, but Miri interveres and, using Luci as weapon, chases them out of the castle, into the Sea of Dreamland.

Following these events, Cloyd and Becky return to Maru. They are last seen in The Stience of Homemade Lightning when Zog and Bean also end up in Maru in a hot air balloon they stole in Steamland. After Cloyd and Becky shoot the balloon down, Bean is found by Prudence and the crones, who learn her to control her magic. With more control over her powers now, Bean confronts Cloyd and Becky, who have taken Zog prisoner. She closes the gate to hell and extinguishes the Oracle Fire, but not before sending Cloyd and Becky to Dreamland through the Oracle Fire first. They end up in the throne room of Dreamland Castle, where Bad Bean and Dagmar immediately kill them by throwing them both in the fire place, having outliving their usefulness.

Trivia[]

  • Like his sister, Becky, Cloyd doesn't love children.
  • Bean called her uncle by name.
  • As an Emperor, Cloyd holds the highest title of any character in the show so far.
    • The fact of being emperor does not, however, make him more powerful or influential because he always obeys the orders of his elder sisters, including Dagmar who is the eldest of their siblings, and because his kingdom is not really powerful.
  • He seems to love being travesty and disguised, he keep several dresses and costumes belonging to him in the old Dagmar's wardrobe at Maru palace.
  • He seems to have a cocaine addiction.
