Name: Tarskal Dihemn
Skills: Poison magic, necromancy, plotting, perving, convincing anyone of anything, being very evil and having no conscience whatsoever
Likes: Success, getting what he wants, a well laid plan, attractive women (and he has a thing for glasses he supposes), thinking for long periods of time, snakes
Dislikes: Those who don't comply with orders, mistakes that screw him over, being married, Atra (Astal&Ranieh's father), the Arians, eventually being cursed with the appearance of old age
Description: You can hate him and love him, love to hate him, but this guy really knows how to toy with whatever emotions you let on. Sadistic and sophisticated, he works for his own twisted ends with little regard for what havoc it causes. If you get caught up as a pawn in his game, chances are you'll find out too late to do anything except play along. But for all his complete evil and perverted personality and thought pattern, he manages to earn a reputation as being quirky and almost funny; a rather nasty note signed "Cheers. -TD" got him his quaint nickname which we refer to him by. Of course just when you think you've got him all figured out, TD can twist himself into something you would have never imagined him to be, and therefore is very hard to get to know and get along with (the man has no friends). Basically you can figure on everything he says and does being an act tailored to a purpose, and watch out, because getting too close means getting burned.
Background Info: Who knows where he came from, but TD has long been an enemy of the Arian people (trying to turn their royals into elementaras), and an accomplice to S.T.A.L., though not working under them. He married Kieva with the mindset that a strong and intelligent girl like her could produce an heir for him to mold to his will and counter whatever children his archrival Atra had. Once the boy was born he ditched his wife, though she was the one who walked out in the end. When he found out about Arilla he deemed it the perfect method of revenge, and started the whole ball rolling by kidnapping the royal infant and leaving her with S.T.A.L. Later on in life he was cursed to look old and thus ugly, but in our detached from storyline story he returns as the younger, slinkier (kinkier? O_o;), version of himself.
