Describe a character in just one sentence (Spoilers, probably)

ButtercheeseButtercheese Member Posts: 3,766
As the title suggests, pick a character from BG and Co. and try to descibe them in only one (short) sentence.
Don't name the character, that's up for the readers to guess ;)

I'll start:
Emo elf who's out for revenge.

    Frightened Yakman!

    Er ... which of us is missing something here? ...

    @Buttercheese - are you wanting readers to post guesses, or is this an only-in-your-own-head exercise?

    Here's my contribution:
    No small children will die, tee hee hee, not for at least five minutes.

    @Gallowglass: Yakman is in ToB. Late-game Yakman! Yakman talk talk talk all the time. Yakkity Yakman! But Yakman sees demons. Frightened Yakman! Yakman never ever sleeps. Delusional Yakman!

    But Gallowglass doesn't know Yakman. Lonely Yakman!

    Yes, yes, of course I know who Yakman is (or even Tamorlin), but surely naming the character in the description is defeating the point of the exercise? Or is there some subtlety here which I'm too tired to have noticed?

    Old man offers 'advice' that you already know, so he can take credit for your accomplishments.

    Death, that meaningless thing, in a sibling rivalry.

    Compassion scarred her body, but not her soul.

    He turns into a werewolf, and nobody ever mentions it.

    Wings lost through mundane means, can't heal them even though she is one of the most powerful clerics and mages in the realm.

    Captures villain, takes away his ability to feel emotions, leaves his power...acts surprise when he attacks again.

    She and her "soul sister" have become one with the void and wish to teach you the "pleasures" of entropy.

    Asks you if you can help him find his cloak, and then teleports you into a prison full of homicidal mages...all without any reward offered or given.

    A woman of grace, and champion of the little guy.

    People throw rocks +2 at him.

    Wherever he is, he is seething.

    @Grum:


    1: Gnomish inventor uses humor to hide his sorrow.
    Jan. His story with his old love is quite sad. She chose an evil man over him.

    2: Heya.
    Basically anybody who says this when you right-click on them.

    3: Bubbly fish man wants to eat his son.
    Ixilthetocal. Lots of talk about eating each other in the City of Caverns quest.

    4: Sexy spider woman ties up her victims.
    Pai'Na. How can you resist?

    5: Blue-collar Frenchman has leather fetish.
    Rejiek Hidesman speaks with a stereotypical French accent for some reason.

    6: Gets killed by a kobold, then slays Melissan with Spike Traps.
    Charname. What a doofus.

    7: Mary Sue has cameo.
    Drizzt. In BG1 you even get a journal entry talking about what a spiffy chap he is.

    8: Glowing exposition fairy.
    The Solar in ToB. Your responses to her make no difference; all she does is serve as an infodump.

    9: Despana bitch.
    Phaere. Solaufein once uses this to refer to her.

    10: Dancy boy.
    Andante. He fights Dirbish the Black in Brynnlaw. If Dirbish wins, he says, "Ye've seen your last tea biscuit, dancy-boy." If Andante wins, he says, "Culture will defeat you loutish brutes each and every time."

    11: Gives you a free scimitar.
    Habib Khalid Achmed Allafif. Although the scimitar appears as a magic item and you don't actually get to keep it, I don't think, at least not without a certain fix.

    12: Beware my bite for it might... might... might really hurt or something.
    Lilarcor. The item description has his best line.

    Betrays his people, throws a hissy fit, loses his ability to feel emotions, regains them, throws a hissy fit, betrays his people again, dies.
    Irenicus.

    13: Spends his life killing people, ends his life having sex.
    Bhaal.
