Added DiffLines:

* DumbassNoMore: During the War of the Lance, Toede is an incompetent boob whether he's managing the Dragonarmies after Verminaard's death or ruling the town of Flotsam. By the War of Souls, he takes over Flotsam again and actually does a very good job of running the place. He also begins researching arcane magic and is very good at that too.


Added DiffLines:

* HundredPercentAdorationRating: After the War of Souls, Toede takes control of the town of Flotsam. The locals love him because he provides the safety and stability they've been lacking for years. Toede establishes an efficient civil service, works with the thieves' guild to keep the streets safe, rebuilds Flotsam's defenses and begins reclaiming farmland outside the town.


Added DiffLines:

* ModernMajorGeneral: Kitiara visits Verminaard's military operations in ''Dragons Of The Highlord Skies''. Toede has taken over, and it's predictably become a gong show.

[[spoiler: He manages to become the supreme god, and destroy all others... which [[FateWorseThanDeath ended]] [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt very badly]].

* FreudianExcuse: It's implied in ''Dragons Of The Highlord Skies'' that Derek took the death of his younger brother Edwin Crownguard earlier in the war very hard. This is the start of his obsession with becoming Grand Master of the Knights and winning the war. Combine that with his innate GloryHound and KnightTemplar tendencies and his MindRape by the dragon orb of Icewall (see below) and it's no wonder he turned out the way he did.




to:

* SympathyForTheDevil: Even if Derek is always a self-righteous prig, one can't help but feel sorry for him with how deeply his little brother Edwin's death affected him and how the dragon orb of Icewall twisted this into his going insane.

to:

* SparedByTheAdaptation: Aran dies at Icewall Castle in the Weis and Hickman novels, but he can survive in the modules and continue as part of Laurana's party to Southern Ergoth and Sancrist, and even fight at the High Clerist Tower.

!!Brian Donner
->'''Race:''' Human
->'''Class:''' Noble/Fighter
->'''Alignment:''' LawfulGood

* BadassMoustache: Brian is a Solamnic Knight, so this comes with the territory.
* ForegoneConclusion: Brian is mentioned as dying in ''Dragons Of Winter Night''. When he appears in ''Dragons Of The Highlord Skies'', it's obvious that he won't live out the book.
* IdealHero: He is one of the Knights who actually strives to live up to its principles, and recognizes that same dedication in Sturm.
* LoveAtFirstSight: He immediately falls in love with Lilith Hallmark, one of the librarians at the Library of Khrystann in Tarsis.
* MagnificentBastard: When Brian learns that Sturm is pretending to be a Solamnic Knight, he knows that Derek will use that to prevent Sturm from ever being officially made a Knight. Brian then appoints Sturm as his squire, which expunges any of Sturm's past violations of the Measure. Derek is furious at Brian, but is powerless to do anything.
* ShortLivedBigImpact: Brian is killed in ''Dragons Of The Highlord Skies'', but his making Sturm his squire allows Sturm to later become a full-fledged Knight and turn the tide at the High Clerist's Tower.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Brian dies at Icewall Castle in the Weis and Hickman novels, but he can survive in the 3rd Edition modules and continue as part of Laurana's party to Southern Ergoth and Sancrist, and even fight at the High Clerist Tower.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: Brian becomes increasingly distant from Derek during the quest for the dragon orb. He finally burns his bridges with Derek when he appoints Sturm as his squire.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassMoustache: Aran is a Solamnic Knight, so this comes with the territory.
* BowAndSwordInAccord: Aran is a skilled swordsman, but he's also known for being one of the best archers in the Solamnic Knights.
* FieryRedhead: He has a boisterious, outgoing nature in keeping with his red hair and moustaches.
* ForegoneConclusion: Aran is mentioned as dying in ''Dragons Of Winter Night''. When he appears in ''Dragons Of The Highlord Skies'', it's obvious that he won't live out the book.
* FunctionalAddict: He keeps a hip flask that he regularly uses, although it's never shown to hinder his performance.
* MeaningfulName: [[SarcasmMode Shockingly]], a guy named Tallbow happens to be an excellent archer.
* NiceToTheWaiter: Aran comes from a noble family, but unlike Derek he treats lower-class people just as well as his fellow aristocrats.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: He has this attitude towards the Measure, even saying to "piss" on it at one point when it seems to be hindering the cause of good.

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He genuinely enjoys the time he spends with the rest of Tanis's party when they form a traveling show, and a part of him regrets leaving it. When Caramon, Tika and Tasslehoff are cornered by Dragonarmy soldiers beneath the Temple of Neraka, he also remembers the earlier years he spent with them. This motivates him to heal Tas when the latter is dying from a poison needle trap. And after he fully embraces the dark side and becomes a Black Robe wizard, Raistlin still shows affection for Bupu, and his love for Caramon is what ultimately redeems him.



* BrainwashedAndCrazy: The dragon orb in Icewall Castle subtly manipulates him, amplifying his worst traits to the point where he becomes a fanatic and eventually goes crazy.



* SanitySlippage: He gets gradually more and more insane, culminating in him vastly underestimating the draconians and riding into battle with his forces. [[spoiler:The entire army is killed, and Derek survives until he is brought back to the other knights, where his mind has finally snapped and he dies.]]
