The Servant of Evil is a song released by Akuno-P on April 16, 2008 and later uploaded with a PV on April 29 the same year. It is the second song in Story of Evil and serves as a response to The Daughter of Evil.
The song takes place in Lucifenia, where the servant, Allen Avadonia, serves the Princess Riliane. He reveals he is her twin brother, separated from her due to "selfish adult reasons". The servant promises that even if the rest of the world turns against her, he'll continue to protect her.
One day, he goes to visit the Kingdom of Elphegort, and he falls in love with Michaela. However, Kyle Marlon has also fallen in love with her and the jealous Riliane desires her death. Though Allen states he will always grant her wish, he wonders why his tears won't stop falling. Sometime after the event, he serves Riliane brioche for a snack and sees her laugh innocently.
Posterior, the Lucifenian Revolution starts and Allen realizes Riliane will be killed. Despite acknowledging this might be just fate, he still swears to protect her. He has her switch clothes with him, stating that because they were twins, no one will notice. As the princess, he is arrested and Riliane escapes. Following his imprisonment, he is executed, and Riliane watches in the crowd as he says her favorite line. During the last few moments of his life, Allen wishes:"If I could be reborn, I would like to play with you again."
In its initial release, the song utilized Kagamine Rin and Len'sVOCALOID2 voicebank, but later updated the vocals with the Act2 version. Rin's voicebank is used as a background vocal until the execution and she sings during the last pre-chorus with different lyrics. The instruments used in the original song include electronic organ, bass, piano, music box, drum, cymbals, and a sound effect for the guillotine.
The song starts with the chorus and the instrumental version of the chorus, ending at 0.15. The songs repeats the sequence of a verse at (0.32, 1.25, 2.22, 3.13) pre-chorus (0.49, 1.42, 2.38, 3.28) (climbing verse to the chorus), recitative (short speaking portion), and a chorus (1.06, 1.58, 2.57, 3.47) four times. In the middle of the two sequences is the instrumental variation of the first two lines of the chorus at 2.15. After the last chorus, a coda (an addition that brings a song to a close) follows abruptly at 4.04, and the song ends with the instrumental chorus. Interestingly, the song structure parallels The Daughter of Evil.
Another rearranged version of the song with an updated PV was released by mothy, titled "The Servant of Evil ~velvet mix~", in celebration of Len's second anniversary. The instruments used in the remix are flutes, music, drums, organ, strings, piano, and a bloodier sounding guillotine.
///has been confined to bed for 3 years now due to her illness.”
“My mother is the only queen.”
“Your orders, princess!”
“I’m not a prince, I’m your servant.”
“Come, kneel to me”
“If they don’t have bread then let them eat c///
///all of the people will starve to death!”
“With this now, no one will defy///
“Nooooo! Dad, Daaaaaaaa///
“Ah, it’s teatime.”
“Is this…inside a well?”
The song was rearranged by mothy shortly after the release of Kagamine Len ACT 2, titled "The Servant of Evil (Modified Version)", a revised track to improve the smoothness of sound quality while keeping it close to the sound of the original ACT 1 song.
While commenting about the song, mothy expressed that, like The Daughter of Evil, he was tired of listening to the song after reworking it so many times; afterward, he admitted that there wouldn't be Akuno-P if it weren't for the song.
The Servant of Evil is featured in the 3DS game, Hatsune Miku and Future Stars: Project Mirai.
