|I think there's a picture of Darramous |
in the Trolltooth wars, but I don't
have a copy at the moment.,
So here is a picture of a cat.
Appears in: Creature of Havoc (Fighting Fantasy 24) by Steve Jackson.
Background: Darramous is an undead half elf sorcerer, who, when he's not trying to get into more demographic groups, is running a gold mine for Zharradon Marr. He took the position from a wizard called Hannicus who was far too lenient for Darramous and had strange ideas like paying the miners. Darramous blinded Hannicus and made the miners his slaves.
Prominence: He's in one scene in the book. 1/10.
Hardness: Daramous cannot be killed by normal weapons and if you fail to kill him quickly, he'll use his powerful magic on you. You can only kill him with Hannicus's ring. 8/10.
Ambition: Can't be very high if he's content running a gold mine for someone else. 1/10.
Style: His gold mine certainly is a sick and messed up place, crawling with weird beasts and dangerous traps. He also gets bonus marks for being half elf, undead and a magic user. I bet the convention for undead half elf magic users is pretty quiet. 6/10.
Diabolical genius: Darramous doesn't really get a chance to shine since anything that you encounter might be down to his boss's diabolocal genius. 4/10.
Total score: He's interesting, but he needs an evil plot of his own to really shine. 20/50.
