Sergeant Damien is a demon drill sergeant who formerly ran the Drill Demon random event. He kidnapped random players, bringing them to a large military training area and making them do exercises to earn their freedom. He was a harsh soldier, openly insulting those who didn't follow his instructions and performed incorrect actions.

Sergeant Damien has since retired from his duties after the removal of Random events and resides in the circus of Balthazar Beauregard, helping out as a handyman as he and Balthazar were from the same unit during the war.

The remnants of his training area, most prominently the run-on-the-spot sign, can be found in the Mysterious Old Man's basement.
