Dark Cacao Cookie is shown to be strict and extremely protective of the Dark Cacao Kingdom. Although a hero, his voice lines hint that he is very tired of being a great warrior. In his voice lines, he says to be very burdened and too absorbed in the prosperity and responsibilities of his kingdom.
He is shown to be a sweet father during his youth, promising Dark Choco Cookie to make him the best warrior. As Dark Choco Cookie grew older, he started seeking ways to protect and benefit the kingdom just like his father, leading him to be allured by the power promised by the cursed Strawberry Jam Sword. Under the influence of the blade, Dark Choco Cookie nearly killed his father, resulting in Dark Cacao Cookie banishing his son from the kingdom and leaving him full of sorrow and even more bitter than before.
Relation to Dark Choco Cookie
Dark Cacao Cookie is the father of Dark Choco Cookie, who once deeply admired his father and wished to follow in his footsteps. In Dark Choco Cookie's youth, he sought and pulled the Strawberry Jam sword in search of the strength to protect the kingdom before quickly falling victim to the sword's mind-altering abilities. These effects led Dark Choco Cookie to bring about the fall of the Dark Cacao Kingdom. After attacking his father in this state, he was banished from the kingdom and effectively disowned by Dark Cacao Cookie.
The relationship between the two Cookies has yet to be recovered, with Dark Choco Cookie considering himself beyond redemption and instead resigning to a path of darkness and solitude. Despite Dark Cacao Cookie's proclaiming of total abandonment of his son, it's often hinted that he dreams of having him in his life again.
