Realizing their previous attempts to violently seize power constantly failed, Dimitri decided to gain power in Echidnaopolis "legally". With Benedict as their candidate, they hoped to win the High Councilor elections after brainwashing the current High Councilor Pravda into stepping down and announcing his support for Benedict. Benedict managed to captivate some of the audience at his rally and gain some support from echidna voters, while also pushing many potential voters away due to his controversial speech and blatant loyalty to the Dark Legion. Following his speech, Benedict attempted to blackmail Constable Remington into joining his cause and allowing him to rig the elections, threatening to reveal Remington's family relations to Kragok. Remington refused however, angering Benedict. Shortly thereafter, Benedict was destroyed when a captured Knuckles unleashed a large amount of Chaos radiation which destroyed his circuits and exposed him to be a robot, just as Benedict was declared the winner. Dimitri did have the foresight to name a back-up candidate in his stead. (KtE: #22, #23, #24)
