Today's "Villain of the Day" is SARK !
Commander Sark is the henchman and chief lieutenant to the Master Control Program. Sark oversaw the training of new programs who were kidnapped and brought to the Game Grid by the MCP. Sark freely admitted that the training he arranged for the conscripts was somewhat substandard, as Sark's own elite force of programs nearly always won every match they took part in. Sark was known to enter the games himself from time to time, and was a grand master at any game he cared to try (favoring the game of Light Cycles over others).
Sark is brutally efficient at his work. Furthermore, the MCP himself pointed out that Sark actually enjoys his job - "you are becoming brutal and needlessly sadistic", the MCP tells Sark. "Thank you," Sark replies, taking immense pride in being labelled as such.
"Greetings. The Master Control Program has chosen you to serve your system on the Game Grid. Those of you who continue to profess a belief in the Users will receive the standard substandard training, which will result in your eventual elimination. Those of you who renounce this superstitious and hysterical belief will be eligible to join the warrior elite of the MCP. You will each receive an identity disk. Everything you do or learn will be imprinted on this disk. If you lose your disk or fail to obey commands, you will be subject to immediate de-resolution. That will be all."
