He was reputed to be "older than time," and he is renown for taking the patterns of mens lives and tangling them, warping them, and shattering them and laughing at the result. Dansker claims to have once ruled a host of demons comparable to that ruled by Satana's father. Satan managed to defeat him using treachery, through darkling spells to bind Dansker to his service and make him Satan's slave. He served him for countless eons as his lap dog, biding his time while building up his strength, waiting for Satan's spells to weaken so that he might escape his control.
Satana began her tutelage under the ancient demon Dansker. As part of a graduation day type of test, Satana was pitted against Dansker in a struggle that had the potential for death. Satana got in a few good strikes, surprising her master, but Dansker then focused more fully and easily defeated her. He did not strike the killing blow, but made it clear that he could have, and that he would always be her master.
Dansker managed to contact the witch Deborah Hirsch, who resisted him with all of her might. However, when a group of townspeople ambushed Deborah and prepared to burn her at the stake, her concentration lapsed and Dansker took hold, draining her soul and possessing her mortal form. In Deborah's form, Dansker slaughtered the crowd that had attempted to burn her, also stunning Satana, who had been drawn to the crowd by the energies of Dansker. Dansker then traveled to the Cairn-on-the-Cliff, where he planned to sacrifice Adam Rossi, presumably for a spell that would allow him to access his full power and free his physical form from Hell. Recovering, Satana confronted Dansker and managed to overpower his mortal form and rescue Adam. Dansker then tried to run Satana down with a car, but Satana summoned forth the Basilisk, which slew Dansker, leaving Deborah's form dead as well.
