April A to Z Characters: D

D is for Darkious Maximus, Evil Overlord Extraordinare, Master of the Nine Darknesses.

The Evil Overlord himself, straight from the dark depths of Not Another Bard's Tale. Well, not straight exactly. He's probably crooked, really, really crooked, but you get the idea.

You can call him DM. It's embroidered on all of his clothing and the uniforms of his minions in case your memory gets foggy while basking his gloriously evil presence.

From the pointed tip of his neatly-trimmed black goatee to the bottom of his black souled boots, he's evil through and through. Don't let him hear that you doubt his evil rating or question the actual existance of nine levels of darkness. He'll have his wizard, Tim, turn you into a corpse frog. You don't want to spend the rest of your days hopping about and croaking "Riiiibrains" do you?

Likes: News that the people of countryside fear him, interior decorating with skulls, finding his long lost son and heir.

Dislikes: Interfering knights, incompetant minions, Sheep Gods.

  1. Sounds like a fascinating character. Not sure I could ever call him DM without referencing 'Dungeon Master' though. Don't know if I would want to risk it...he sounds like the kind of baddie who would like to be considered 'Master' of anything, but on the other hand, he may become a tad upset and I have no real urge to be turned into any kind of amphibian.

    1. Hmm, that might be amusing if I can work it in. Not the turning you into a amphibian part, that would be cruel. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Loving your character descriptions for the A-Z challenge.

    DM could also be Doc Martins but don't tell him I said that. Not sure I fancy being a corpse frog.

    1. Now that would be a challenge to work in. He is quite proud of his dungeon so that one works, but shoes...hmm. Not that I'm above throwing something totally random in there for the fun of it. Wouldn't be the first time. :)

  4. Thanks. It started out as a way to get extra words during NaNoWriMo. A character with a long name is definitely a way to do that. After a couple scenes, it defined his entire character. :)

  5. Interesting guy, but I'll pass on meeting him because I don't want to be a corpse frog, either.

    1. I tend to wander between genres. Not sure if that's a good thing or not, but hey, it's what I do. :)
