Sometime before the adventure began, Cagnazzo killed the King of Baron and took his place to have Red Wings to invade Mysidia to steal their Crystal of Water. But like the other residents of Baron, Cecil Harvey began to notice that the king was acting strange. Upon being questioned why the attack on Mysidia, the "king" immediately discharged Cecil from his post as captain of the Red Wings, and ordered him and Kain Highwind to slay the Eidolon guarding the Misty Valley, and to deliver a Ring to the village of Mist. Once Cecil refused to follow the "King's" order after learning the truth behind the ring, Cagnazzo orders Baigan and his forces to exterminate him while Golbez and the Red Wings go after the remaining crystals.

After Cecil became a Paladin, he returned to Baron in order to find Cid Pollendina and ask about his newest airship. Since Cid refused to let Cagnazzo use the new airship, the Enterprise, the fiend threw Cid in prison, and Cecil, along with Tellah, Yang Fang Leiden, Palom, and Porom, went to the "King" to inquire about this. However, when Cagnazzo saw that Cecil had become a Paladin, he was upset. Cecil then called the king by his true name, Baron, and the fake king recognized that man as "the fool who refused to surrender", revealing himself in his true form before Cecil's party attacked and defeated him. However, when Cecil and his friends were escaping with Cid, Cagnazzo uses the last of his power to bewitch the antechamber, trapping his killers as the walls caved in on them. In order to save the party, Palom and Porom had to petrify themselves.

Cagnazzo, after being revived by Zemus, fought Cecil's party one more time inside the Giant of Babil, this time accompanied by Scarmiglione, Barbariccia, and Rubicante. All Archfiends were defeated again.
