When Amanda Martinez, a professional dancer, first accepted the Dark Lord, the sphynx cat she had been wanting for years, into her home, she had no idea he would become a celebrity.
“I would have never thought posting the Lord’s sexy knees would have everyone going crazy!” she told Unleashed.
But that’s exactly what happened. Martinez created an Instagram account for her new kitten in October of 2016. He quickly gained followers because of his cuteness.
He kept them because, as he grew older, he began to resemble a priest passing judgment on the weak, a super emo gutter punk, or Rodin’s sculpture The Thinker, depending on how high-brow you want to go with your comparisons.
His knees are also very human-like, which many fans find to be unbearably sexy.
Today, the Dark Lord easily gets thousands of viewers on his videos, which make you feel as though you have died, and are being judged at the gates of Purgatory.
And that’s exactly how the Dark Lord wants you to feel. “The Dark Lord is the boss of the house!” Martinez divulged. “He walks around like the king and always gets his way even if he has to take it! He sits on top of the fridge like a throne with his weird pose and sexy knees. He just has a badass attitude!”
Martinez and her fiancé have a dog, Nixie, whom the Dark Lord also controls. In his down time, he likes to plot world domination, and steal the couple’s hair ties and food.
While he waits for lesser beings to succumb, the Dark Lord is also preparing a line of merchandise for his followers. On May 13, he celebrates his second birthday — plan accordingly.
