The goal of the epic quest in epic fantasy is often to thwart the machinations of a Dark Lord in order to prevent them from becoming ruler of the world. Dark Lords have a number of features in common: their strategies to achieve world domination are similar as are the ways in which they, their servants, and their domains are portrayed. Satan and Sauron are two central figures that echoe in the fantasy Dark Lords. Tolkien’s Dark Lord in particular has come to dominate the genre’s conception of what the Lord of Evil ought to be like, what his servants are like, and what his country should look like. And through Tolkien’s influence, the shadow of Satan also looms over the epic fantasy genre.
