You, the player, realize the Lich was villain not for his own sake, but to protect the world from the Loknar.

Most characters would study it, letting it's fuckuppedness slip through their fingers and into the world.

I think it just didn't have to do much in that situation. That entire city was already as dark and nasty as cities get, and it didn't have to do anything to make the situation worse. The taxi driver probably got shanked for his pocket money or ran off the road by a drunk within a month. No need for the Loknar to impose.
Same with the nerd in the fantasy world. Simply existing there was enough to cause chaos and death, it just had to throw a new player into the mix to make the situation worse, and that's exactly what it did.

Yes, hence Lok-Nhar destroys the Queen and the Immortal Faggot in the Richard Corben world. You never ever control the Lok-Nhar, you are his bitch and when you don't serve him anymore for his plans you sure will end obliterated.
I mean, this thing is capable of destroy a Flash Gordon tier hero capable of drive a car into a planet's atmosphere from a spaceship and land safely as a level 1 PC will kill a goblin so can make BBEGs like Darkseid or Sauron polish him every morning and kneel on their four before adressing to his spherical evil perfection.

It vies for control with the Dark Entity contacting my character from within his magical weapon for complete domination of my character. Either way, my character is going to end up becoming a puppet/husk. It's only a matter of question and time who wins out in the end.

From what I can gather so far from the entity within the weapon, it feasts on the souls of those slain by the weapon. It is also very tricksy and deceptive being. Calling it a fiend would be an understatement as it's more of a force of nature.
