Ahriman is the ancient God of Darkness, and the primary antagonist of Ubisoft Montreal Studio's 2008 action/adventure game Prince of Persia and Prince of Persia: The Fallen King. He was sealed thousands of years before the events of the game by his brother Ormazd, the god of light, into the sacred Tree of Life. He was voiced by both Kwasi Songui and Catherine Kidd.
He offers a (sometimes false) fulfillment of one's greatest wish in return for their soul. It was by offering resurrection to The Mourning King's daughter, Elika that made The Mourning King sell his soul and become one of the Corrupted, freeing Ahriman in the process. Later, Ahriman offers the resurrection of Elika to the Prince in return for his freedom.
The other four Corrupted of Prince of Persia were offered the following:
The Hunter - the eternal hunt;
The Alchemist - eternal life so he could accomplish his scientific goals;
The Concubine - power of illusion so she could become whoever she desired;
The Warrior - unbeatable strength so he could protect his kingdom.
