Archimago is a sorcerer and deceiver, Archimago seeks to overcome Una through false appearances and lies. He causes Redcrosse to doubt Una's fidelity, disguises himself as Redcrosse in an attempt to take Una, and even attempts to stop Redcrosse's betrothal to Una by insisting that Duessa has a prior claim on him. Each time his deception is uncovered, rendering him powerless.
