Added DiffLines:

* UnskilledButStrong: Both played straight and subverted. In ''Chronicles'' he is by far the strongest member of the Company yet he lacks proper training and he is not as skilled as Sturm or even Tanis. In ''Legends'' he receives formal training from experts in both armed and unarmed training, which coupled with calisthenic regimens he is put through, transform him into an amazingly strong '''and''' skilled warrior

* GoneHorriblyWrong[=/=]GoneHorribyRight: While a lot of gnome stuff just breaks down or fails when used, sometimes it goes disasterously wrong, leading to death and mutilation. Other times, it technically succeeds, but causes just as much death and destruction.

%%* UnexplainedRecovery

to:

%%* UnexplainedRecovery* UnexplainedRecovery: Though it should be noted that it's done by the goddess of healing, so it's not.



* AntiHero: Of the NominalHero variety. He partakes in heroic events, but he's only doing so for pure pragmatism (after all, he doesn't want to live in a world conquered by Takhisis any more than they do), and all the while, he's keeping an eye out for ways to further his own plans. Later becomes this totally.
