> Hmm. Any fictional accounts of an Ancient Locked Away Evil that had undergone a change of heart during Its imprisonment and was no longer Evil when released?

Closest I can think of is Illyria on "Angel", but her improvements came after being released, not from a change of heart during her "eternal lie".

Gaming example from Pazio's Pathfinder setting:

Sorshen, the Runelord of Lust, was already backing off on how nasty she was back when she ruled her part of Thassalon even before it became possible for her to some back from her self-imprisonment¹. Sure, she still wants to rule an empire, but she's going about it in a much more acceptable way, (including not insisting on getting her old territory back).


1: It was a "hide from cataclysm" plan that, like all the other Runelords' plans, got them stuck away far longer than planned for various reasons.
