The four winged dragon insignia of the Dark Empire.

The Dark Empire were the first "bad-guys" to appear in Dark Age Legends. It was a huge Empire, which had nearly full control over the Dark Continent, and was the fastest growing empire in Gaian. The rulers of the Dark Empire were of course an Emperor, and three High Generals who ruled over each section (divided by north, south, east, west) of the world. The Dark Empire defeated many of their enemies and had proved to be a very powerful and long lasting empire. The Empire appeared to have been defeated at the end of Chapter 3 when the emperor Retan appeared to have died. Draven then took over, and started the Crimson Empire.

However, Retan returned at the beginning of Chapter 9, reclaiming what was left of the Crimson Empire without contest. Retan apparently had a secret army of lizard men being built up. It was also revealed that there were two other divisions of the sky and the subterrain, suggesting the Empire transcends Gaian.
