|“||Oh, dear me. Do you fail to understand still? You're such an innocent child. At times, I am the affable mayor of Phenac... And at others, I am the secret boss of the criminal syndicate Cipher... I am Evice, and I shall rule the world!||„|
|~ Evice to Rui|
Evice (Japanese: ワルダック Wardack) is the criminal mastermind behind Cipher. He is the only character in the games to have the Trainer class Cipher Head (Japanese: シャドーのボス Shadow Boss). He disguises himself as the mayor of Phenac City under the name of Es Cade (Japanese: バックレー Backley). In his disguise, he is a fat and jolly gentleman who appears to be worried about the increase in crime caused by Cipher and Team Snagem, yet as the head of Cipher, he appears to have done nothing to stop either of them, ensuring that Snagem and Cipher work without interference.
