In the fifth chapter, the Secret of Evolution has transformed him into a more powerful being: Baalzack (or "Balzack+"). He is occupying the empty Castle Zamoksva. He is very arrogant, and disliked even by his subordinate demons. His intention, he says, is to enhance his body to be even more godlike than Psaro the Manslayer, but he lacks the Armlet of Transmutation which allows him to use the full power of the Secret of Evolution. With the help of the hero, Maya and Meena are able to finally defeat him.

The name Balzack is similiarly close to that of Honoré de Balzaca French Novelist and Playwright, whose magnum opus was titled La Comédie humainea series of short stories and novels detailing life after the fall of Napoleon Bonaparte. The story of Balzac is also similar to that of Honoré, as both turned their backs on their teachers or professions and sought a higher purpose.
