Bo's Father, also known as The Dark King, Lord of Darkness and Hades, was the name of a character that appeared in the Lost Girl television series. As of the end of the fourth season, the actor playing the role was not revealed but the character was referenced repeatedly. During the fifth season episode End of Faes, the actor was revealed to be Eric Roberts.

During the latter half of the Third Season, the character was referenced many times. He made only one actual appearance in that season which occurred in The Ceremony. In that episode, Bo experienced a vision where he appeared, his voice was heard, but what he looked like was not shown.

In the Fourth Season, there was some confusion over whether he was The Wanderer who played a pivotal role during the season. But, by the end of the season, it was clear that the two were different beings. As the season unfolded, his plans to transform Bo into his Dark Queen were revealed, and his plans to escape his imprisonment in Hel were made clear.

As of the end of the Fourth Season, Bo's Father remained trapped in Hel, his plans stopped at least for the moment, but he remained a threat to Bo and her friends. His intentions were unclear eave that he intended to rule over the Fae as their Dark King with Bo serving as his Dark Queen. Though referred to as the Pyripuss at one more, this was later proven to be incorrect when Bo's nature was fully revealed.

The character actually appeared onscreen for the first time in the fifth season episode End of Faes and has made seven other appearances since that episode. It was also when his name was made known. Hades schemed to isolate Bo, his daughter, and then use her to take over Earth and making it "Hell on Earth" over which he would rule, Bo as his puppet to maintain control. By using various subtle means of influencing Bo and her family, he attempted to gain Bo's trust initially, then attempted to push Bo towards madness by killing Trick and Aife. In the end, Hades used Bo's own nature and past to break her will to the point where she feel to his control for a period of time. Bo did escape Hades' control and then fought Hades in a final battle where Bo either banished Hades back to Hel, or destroyed him. It is more likely that Hades was banished as it was shown that Hades' mark was on Dagny, Tamsin's daughter and was active, meaning that Hades was most likely still alive.

Character History

Third Season

Prior to the third season, Bo's Father had been mentioned only in passing and Bo herself had no recollection of him. However in Caged Fae Bo spoke with Trick over her concerns about what her mother Aife experienced at the hands of her father, noting that he was most certainly Dark Fae in nature and was concerned about what that fact might mean to her.

Bo's Father made his first series appearance in The Ceremony though it was limited and did not reveal what he actually looked like. While Bo was undergoing her Dawning, she experiences a vision of what might be her past. In this vision, Bo enters a room where a large bassinet sits empty and a man rocks a baby in his arms. He speaks to the girl in his arms saying that she has "so much ahead of you. I've waited so long to have you in my arms." He then sings a song to the baby which Bo hums along to. The song is: "Gang awa' peerie faeries... Gang awa' peerie faeries... Gang awa' peerie faeries... Frae oor ben noo." As the song ends, Bo is quiet for a moment and then whispers "Dad?" The man, who can be assumed to be Bo's Father, though we never see his face, places the baby Bo back into her crib and then speaks to a female guardian, telling her "If Isabeau needs anything. Doesn't matter when. Doesn't matter what. You let me know." Bo's Father then disappears and Aife is seen killing the guardian and then stealing Bo away. This event marks the only time that Bo's Father is heard or seen in person in the Third and Fourth Seasons. At the end of this episode, Trick reveals an image in his collection which seems to be connected to Bo's Father in some way.

He was referred to again in Those Who Wander when Bo found Aife alive and imprisoned. Aife told Bo that her father would be able to kill those that imprisoned them and then resurrect them before killing them again. This was the first indication that Bo's Father had a specific power and hinted at the abilities that Bo had as well.

At the end of the Third Season, Bo's Father was still a mystery, his purpose and plans unknown and unclear though it appeared he was alive, but his location was not known.

Fourth Season

The Fourth Season of the series caused a great deal of confusion about who exactly Bo's Father was. At the beginning of the season Bo was captured by The Wanderer, known as Rainer, who initially appeared to possibly be Bo's Father. However, as the season progressed, it became clear that The Wanderer was not Bo's Father, but was in fact "Bo's Destiny." In the last two episodes of the season, Bo's Father finally appeared to confront Bo and Rainer towards the latter half of the season where some of his plans were made clear.

In Origin, Bo and Rainer attempted to stop Bo's Father from returning from Hel, but were tricked into completing a prophecy which rather than sealing him in Hel, opens a portal for him to return.

In Dark Horse, Trick swore that the true identity of Bo's Father was not known by him. Bo discovered that she was being transformed by her father into The Dark Queen and when she arrived at the portal where her father would appear to confront him, she began to change into the Dark Queen, but Dyson saved her. When this failed, Bo's Father sent an army of Remnants to the portal in a bid to escape Hel, but his advance was held at bay by Dyson, Trick and Tamsin. Kenzi figured out the prophecy to close the portal, and to do so she sacrificed herself. With Kenzi's action, Bo's Father could not escape Hel and remained trapped there.

At the end of the Fourth Season, Bo's Father had not revealed himself to Bo, though some facts were known about him. It was clear that he intended to have Bo serve as his Dark Queen to his Dark King and bring all Fae under his control. He was apparently trapped in Hel and while his first attempt to escape was thwarted by Kenzi's actions, another attempt was almost certain. What his involvement going forward in the series with Bo's life and any possibly plans he might have, including the possible entrapment of Kenzi to draw Bo to him were not known.

Fifth Season

Bo's Father first made his presence known in the premiere episode of the Fifth Season Like Hell, Part I where it was shown that he used old style rotary telephones who's dials glowed blue when he wanted to communicate. At one point, Kenzi was seen yelling into the phone, calling him a "heavy breather stalker" but he never spoke. He also communicated with Tamsin, turning her personality as a result, and making her seek out Bo. He spoke with one of the Valkyrie, Stacey as well. It was also made clear that Freyja, the ruler of Valhalla was not pleased with having to do business with him. At the end of the episode, Bo pressed a glowing blue floor button in an elevator and was sent on her way to see him.

During Like Hell, Part II, Bo went to confront him and after taking an Artemis Moon Candle from him, at the moment of Bo's escape to the elevator between realms in Hel, he attacked her. The only physical evidence of Bo's Father was his outstretched hand which gripped Bo by her throat for a time before she broke free. No sign of his actual physical form otherwise occurred in the episode, though Bo could hear his breathing while she searched for the candle she needed. Persephone, who revealed herself to be Bo's stepmother and as well the wife of Hades, told Bo that: "Hades used to gloat over what his daughter would become. A Queen capable of dominion over life and death. There were guards then. A midwife, lots of people. But they fled when Hades began to lose his power." Persephone's revelations about Bo's Father seemed to indicate that his name is Hades, but whether this is true or not was not clear or certain by the end of the episode.

During It's Your Lucky Fae, Bo received a birthday gift from her father of a strange Jack-in-the-box with unknown powers.

In End of Faes, Hades made his first actual on-screen appearance in a vision to Bo. Hades spoke riddles to Bo as she tried to decide whether to open the Jack-in-the-box her father had sent her in order to stop the plans of the Ancients on Earth.

in 44 Minutes to Save the World, Bo released Hades from his imprisonment and he quickly placed himself into the lives of Bo and her friends. During the episode Hades helped to save Mark's life, advised Lauren in her research and met Dyson. He also was present when Bo confronted Iris, in the end, Hades killed her while Bo trapped Nix, who had been inside of Iris, in the box that had once held Hades. In doing so, Hades remained on Earth, but was being held in isolation in Lauren's clinic. Hades had a conversation with Bo in which he explained his side of the story with regards to what Bo had learned from her mother Aife in the past. By the end of the episode, Hades had a strained relationship with Bo, she not trusting him.

During Like Father, Like Daughter, Hades discussed with Lauren her situation as a Conduit, what that meant, and offered his assistance to her. Hades also touched Lauren at one point, which gave Lauren some amount of his power for an instant. This manifested as a dark glow around one of Lauren's hands. Hades also spoke with Bo and Kenzi when they had possession of a painting called "The Vanishing" which, according to Hades, could be used to banish the Ancients from Earth. He also warned Bo that it could be used against her as well. At the end of the episode, Zee confronted Hades, demanding to know what his plans were, but Hades did not reveal them. Hades then was seen in possession of the painting, which he then revealed was a false painting over the true one, then gloating over his plans which he warned Zee where already begun.

In Sweet Valkyrie High, Hades had a conversation with [[The Morrigan}Evony]] who was seeking his help to overcome her health issue, but he refused explaining that his powers had no effect on humans. After a spirited conversation with her, Evony seemed to change her attitude and strengthen her resolve. Hades also encountered Tamsin, in the beginning of the episode paying her for finding Bo and bringing her to him, and in the latter part of the episode, having a discussion with Tamsin over her possibly being the General of his army, but then rebuffing her. At the end of the episode, Hades revealed that he was able to leave his cell at any time and did so, leaving no trace of his escape, his destination and intent unknown.

During Judgement Fae, Hades had returned to his cell and then had a conversation with Bo in which he explained why the painting that Bo had used did not, in fact, banish Zee from the Earth. Following the events of the episode where Lauren returned herself to human and then broke off her relationship with Bo, he was confronted by Bo again. During this, Hades claimed that his intentions were not to harm Lauren, or to cause her to break off her relationship with Bo. He again claimed that he only wanted the best for Bo and to make her happy. He also mentioned that he: "...can only lead you to water, I cannot force you to drink." Hades then claimed he would step away from Bo, to give her time to figure out her life, adding that he would remain where he was waiting for her return. At the end of the episode, Bo was seen kissing Tamsin, and her features shifted to be similar to that of Hades.

In Family Portrait, Hades escaped his cell, leaving a thank you note for Lauren and a drawing of Bo behind. Bo located Hades in Zee's condominium where she also found her mother Aife present. The three had a conversation over dinner during which Hades planted more doubt in Bo's mind about Trick and the rest of those that Bo called her family. Hades attempted to have Bo join him, as seemingly Aife had done so. It was also learned in the episode that Hades had impersonated Bo at least twice, once to gain Aife's trust, the other in the previous episode where he was intimate with Tamsin in Bo's form. Hades revealed that he was able to mimic others, so long as they were of his blood, but if he also gained their abilities was not made clear. Bo, Tamsin and Dyson later confronted Hades, the result of which was that Hades was struck by Tamsin, Bo plunged a knife into his chest, and neither had any effect. Hades then threw the knife at Dyson, injuring him and causing the attack to end when Bo and the other retreated. Hades then sought out Aife, who had been returned to the hospital where she had been incarcerated. Finding both Trick and Aife there, Hades, by means not revealed, overpowered them both and took them back to what was now his condominium. Bo arrived soon after to find that Hades had killed both Aife and Trick by slitting their throats and placing them in a large diorama called "Family Portrait." Hades' location was not made clear at the end of the episode, but the aftermath of his actions, both in killing Trick and Aife, but also in causing Tamsin to be pregnant, was clear.

Hades appeared at the end of Follow the Yellow Trick Road where he confronted Vex. The two spoke about Vex's decision to change sides, to join Bo, before Hades slit Vex's throat with a knife before walking away, leaving Vex on the floor, clutching his neck and convulsing.

During Let Them Burn, it was revealed that Hades' attempt to kill Vex failed, Kenzi having found Vex still alive, but also that Hades had kidnapped Tamsin from Bo's home. It was then shown that Hades had placed Tamsin in a cage similar to that which Aife was imprisoned in. Over the course of the episode, Hades was seen to play psychological games with Tamsin, pushing her into despair. Hades also, at one point when Tamsin was asleep, had removed Tamsin's wings leaving only stumps behind. Later in the episode, Bo faced Hades, after discovering that she was the Pyrippus and attempted to convince Hades that she was willing to do as he asked. After a long conversation, Hades demanded that Bo kill her remaining friends: Kenzi, Lauren, Dyson and Mark. Hades was not aware however that Vex was still alive however. After Bo set a fire in the clubhouse and called her friends there, Hades looked on in approval as Bo lit the house on fire and then did not attempt to save them. Following this, Hades took Bo to his condominium where he guided Bo to a throne meant for her. Hades then touched the mark he had placed on Bo's chest, intending to solidify his control over her. Upon believing he had control over Bo, he asked Bo to do something for her, the effects of that not being revealed in the episode.

Hades made his final appearance in the series finale Rise where Hades intended to have Bo feed off the entire city, starting with the local Fae colony, then the continent, then the world. Bo was to feed from all humans and Fae, drawing their Chi into herself and through her, Hades would also have access to the power. When Bo refused to feed, Hades used mainly psychological means to break down Bo's will until her dark side came out fully. After this happened, Bo followed Hades' instructions and fed on the city around them. Hades needed an army on Earth and by using Bo to take the Chi from the city, he was able to animate the bodies he wished to. This meant he did not have to being an army from Tartarus to complete his plan. Following Bo feeding on the city, Hades was aware that something was wrong as he "felt" there was some free will left and when Bo admitted that was her Family, Hades set Bo to kill them. When Bo freed herself from Hades' control, Hades then reanimated the Elder Fae and attempted to use them to take Tamsin's baby from her. However, Bo confronted Hades directly and her family defended Tamsin as she gave birth to Dagny, her daughter. When Bo fought Hades, her inner Chi and power had turned a different colour than it had been before. Instead of being blue, as it had been through the series, it turned a purplish colour. Bo's battle with Hades came down to one difference between them. Hades did not have a good side to him, but Bo did. Bo's good side was given through the love of Trick and in having that, Bo was able to overcome Hades. Bo breathed fire Chi towards Hades, causing his body to burn before he vanished into nothingness. It was unclear if Hades was dead or simply banished, but he did suffer some kind of injury from Bo's attack. While Hades was banished by Bo, his influence remained after he was gone through his hand-print which was seen on Tamsin's daughter Dagny. What this meant was never revealed in the series and is a matter of speculation.

Powers and Abilities

The actual powers that the Dark King possesses are unclear. There have been inferences made that he is a being of great power, but specifics are very few. His wife Aife did claim that he had the power of Resurrection at one point in the series. It is possible, though again not clear, that he may have the power of telepathy. He also may possess powers similar to that of an Incubus as well. All of this is conjecture as of the fourth season, no clear evidence had appeared.

Hades stated that he "was darkness"[2] and was able to touch Iris, who was possessed by the Nix, when all others that had touched her, save for Bo, had died in doing so.

It is unclear, but Hades seems to have a great deal of medical knowledge, the source and level being unclear, but of a high level.[3] He is also a master manipulator, schemer, and uses psychological attacks to confuse, misdirect and otherwise mislead his opponents.

But you've been honest with me from the moment I released you from Tartarus. I know that now, I know why you did what you did to Trick and Aife. You had to. It was the only way I could see the truth. And the truth is, dad, we have a greater purpose. You're the only one that I can trust. You're my family."
  • Hades tells Bo: "I'm glad to see that I have earned your trust, but if you want to work with me, there's something I need you to do."

  • Hades used the Hellskor to trap Bo and force her to listen as he spoke of all of Bo's life mistakes and, according to him, the proof that she wasn't meant to have love.
  • Hades noted: "The hell shoes that took you to Valhalla serve me. I made them to keep you where I want you until you feed."
  • Hades intended to have Bo feed off the entire city, starting with the local Fae colony, then the continent, then the world. Bo was to feed from all humans and Fae, drawing their Chi into herself and through her, Hades would also have access to the power.
  • When Bo refused to feed, Hades told Bo: "It's in your nature Succubus. You can't avoid what you were made for."
  • Hades noted that although he was not present in Bo's life, she found death on her own and it is part of who she is.
  • Hades used mainly psychological means to break down Bo's will until her dark side came out fully. After this happened, Bo followed Hades' instructions and fed on the city around them.
  • When asked by Hades, Bo admitted that her Family was still alive and the horseshoe was protecting them.
  • After sending Bo to claim the horseshoe and kill her Family, Hades then reanimated the police force, sending them against Bo's family. However, when the police fired on them, the horseshoe protected Bo's Family with a forcefield.
  • Hades needed an army on Earth and by using Bo to take the Chi from the city, he was able to animate the bodies he wished to. This meant he did not have to being an army from Tartarus to complete his plan.
  • What Hades did not expect in Bo feeding on her family so was that she would be intimately aware of her Family's Chi, the memories that came with them and this would prove to be the turning point which broke Hades' hold on Bo.
  • When Bo fought Hades, her inner Chi and power had turned a different colour than it had been before. Instead of being blue, as it had been through the series, it turned a purplish colour.
  • When seeing Bo and Hades in battle, Kenzi called it: "It just got Sailor Moon out there!" When Lauren asks what was going on, Kenzi added: "Bo's giving the best HJ of her life!"
  • Bo's battle with Hades came down to one difference between them. Hades did not have a good side to him, but Bo did. Bo's good side was given through the love of Trick and in having that, Bo was able to overcome Hades.
  • Hades tells Bo: "You're dying Bo. I'm killing you. You forced my hand. All because you wouldn't accept what you truly are... evil."
  • Bo replies: "You're right. I am evil, but I am also good, everyone has both... Except for you. That is why you chose Tartarus. It's empty. It's hollow."
  • Hades answers: "You were created in the image of Hades. We are the same."
  • Bo tells Hades, pointedly: "You may have created me. But you never gave a shit about me and that's where we differ. See, unlike you, I care. I am Trick's blood too and his love makes me stronger than the evil that consumes you! You will never use me. You will never control me. I will live the life that I choose! I love you Dad and I'm going to give it all to you, until the day you die."
  • Bo breathed fire Chi towards Hades, causing his body to burn before he vanished into nothingness.
  • It is unclear if Hades is dead or simply banished, but he did suffer some kind of injury from Bo's attack.
  • Dagny has a handprint from Hades on her chest, but opposite to the position where Bo had her own.
  • When Dagny asks what it means, Bo replies: "Evil. I don't know how, and I don't know when, but it's coming for you."
