Agahnim is a wizard shrouded in mystery who became close to the King of Hyrule before overthrowing him.

[edit] The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

As the 7 Sages created their seal to contain the evil power and evil monsters from the Dark World. Hyrule suffered a series of disasters. Fires, floods disease and famine. These wre ongoing problems for Hyrule. But a powerful wizard from an unknown land named Agahnim came to Hyrule and used his magic to end the disasters that were plaguing Hyrule. His actions would make him a legend and a personal adviser to the King of Hyrule. For some time, Agahnim would help the people of Hyrule in whatever way he can, suddenly things began to change in Agahnim. Once he learned about the story of the great Hyrulian war and the sage's seal, he decides to make an attempt to break the sages' seal. His first move was to kill the King of Hyrule and capture the 7 maidens who are descendants of the sages. As 6 maidens were sealed away to the Dark World in crystals, the last maiden Princess Zelda uses her telepathy to call for help this is when it reaches a warrior in training Link in the middle of a dark, stormy night. He suddenly awakens and was told by his uncle (and mentor) to not leave the house. But Link could not ignore Zelda's plea for help, as he reached the castle through a secret passageway. He finds his uncle who was gravely ill, after taking his sword and shield, he heads to the castle and leads Zelda out of the castle through the Hyrule's sewer system and into the sanctuary where Zelda found refuge. But, Agahnim discovered this and now plans to rid of Link by ordering the soldiers to put up signs all over Hyrule (especially Kakariko Village) to alert that Link kidnapped Zelda. As Link retrieved the 3 sacred Pendants of Virtue ad retrieved the Master Sword he receives a telepathic message from Zelda saying that Agahnim has found her and ordered his soldiers to capture her and take her back to the castle. Link arrived just in time to see Zelda sealed away in the Dark World. He fount Agahnim and defeated him, but was drawn into the Dark World. During his adventure in the Dark World, Link discovered from the Maidens that the reason why they were sealed is because Ganon could not break the sages' seal with just his own powers, so he possessed Agahnim to use his powers in Hyrule to seal them away. Link confronts Agahnim again and this time defeats him for all time, setting the stage with link's last fight with Ganon.
