Kane is the commander of the Hypogean army who serves as the final boss of the hardmode labyrinth in the Champions of Esperia event. He also serves as the boss of both campaign stage 1-12 and the Rancid Forest Peaks of Time level; as well as the mini-boss for The Twisted Realm.
Kane attacks the player's team with up to 3 fiery swords and commands his pet dragon to join in the attack. He's able to hone in on the opponent who has dealt the most amount of damage and subsequently annihilate them.
In the lore for the Peaks stage, The Burning Woods, an altar that once held Kane is mentioned.
"This area of woods is said to be scattered with several ancient altars, each altar is said to embody a different type of elemental magic, whether or not the magic within these altars is good or evil is anybodies guess. As a way of maintaining balance between the elements found in this mystical land, ancient Wilder sages created an altar that is now home to a powerful water elemental."
The Burning Woods contain an altar where Seirus sleeps, adjacent to an altar containing Kane. There are several other altars that set the woods on fire when destroyed.
Angelo's Song: The Oath Breaker
You gave me your word
I gave you my child
The most beautiful girl in all the world.
Your thirst for power destroyed
Let my grief enfold thee
For now you shall cower.
The princess is gone. The birds of
Oh how they do scorn.
"Like a fiend in a cloud
with howling woe
after night I do crowd
and with night I will go
My vengeance draws near"

The blade of fire pierced his heart
A feast for the crows before they
The knight had slain his king
Evil had taken hold
Oh what a fearful sight to behold.
now evil assails.
