Jedah is over
6000 years old and he is the youngest out of the three High nobles of Makai.
His liquid body allows him to change into any shape he chooses. He is able to
absorb the souls of others and can instantly increase his own powers. He was
always concerned about the future of Makai. He believed that if Makai was left
to rule by Berial, the master of the Aensland family and the true ruler of
Makai, then it would grow old and begin to decay. Berial would most likely say
that that is destiny and life. To Jedah, Berial was a being who should not
exist. He looked for an opportunity to kill Berial and waited for the right
time to strike.
Jedah, who was resurrected
in the barren outskirts of Makai, laments over a miserable state he has
foreseen for the next world, which will be perched on the verge of destruction.
"It is foolish and meaningless to fight and plunder each other. No one
can save this world except me," he grumbles. To save all forms of life,
every soul needs to be united so as to become one soul; only then will
the world be without violent conflict. However, Jedah required a durable
container that is capable of holding all the souls in order to prevent
him from from making the same mistake that he made with Berial, the Evil
King, 100 years previously. Jedah came up with an idea of collecting the
most valuable souls, and then uniting himself to their combined essence,
creating one container large enough to safely confine all the other souls.
With benevolence in mind, Jedah lands on his feet within the dark entity.
The travelling black void is itself the container called majigen, the spiritual
creation of Jedah. "Join with my soul if you desire peace and tranquility
for all time!"

Jedah is one sinister and undeniably badass
villain, and unlike most characters
from Darkstalkers, he's not a horror
"stereotype" (in turn, making him even more badass in the series). Jedah
made an awesome boss in Darkstalkers 3... one of the best bosses of all
time if you ask me. His moveset was incredibly innovative at the time and still holds up to this
day. All of his attacks and animations are beyond stylish. He uses some awesome
air-dashes, similar to Morrigan's, but puts his own
unique spin on it. In one of his special moves, he chops off his own head to attack his opponents... yes, he's that evil. lol.
It was interesting to see Jedah make his return in Capcom
Fighting Evolution. In fact, Jedah being in Capcom Fighting Evolution is one of my favorite
parts of the game. lol. I'm actually really surprised (and
disappointed) that Jedah didn't appear in any Marvel VS title. He would've
made such an awesome addition to the roster (in any of the games). In
closing, I know Capcom hasn't forgot about this design, and I think we'll see him
again in the future.
