I moved this from the Aenir page, since it's technically more of a fan-theory of mine than fanon, and it cluttered the page.

"Why did I want power?"

Why? Why must I lose?

More power... I must be...stronger...


Why? Why did I... want power?

......Aenir? ...Don't...under...stand... but...

Gaa... Not like this... I will not this.

With my last breath... tremble...and...despair.

Hwah ha ha... Ha...ha ha ha...

Those were the Dark Druid Nergal's last words. They may give insight as to what drove him to begin travelling down the dark paths that eventually corrupted his mind beyond all help: he may have sought the resurrection of his wife, and, in desperation, been willing to do anything to get it.

On the other hand, on another occasion, he said to himself "I have power now. Nothing else matters. I will open the Dragon's Gate and get even more power... The power to defeat anyone. Power...", so his obsession with power might have been driven by his inability to save his wife. Of course, he might have sought power for both reasons; by the time that Eliwood fought against him, anyway, the Dark Magic he practiced had destroyed his personality and rendered him literally unable to recall his former life, so there is no true telling what caused him to seek out power.
