* BloodFromTheMouth: Blood can be seen in and around his mouth while he's unconscious on the ground after Bern defeats him.



* FakeDifficulty: He's introduced as someone far too strong for the local Knight Order to take down. Even Oransong, who is no pushover, was swept aside with ease, using an OffhandBackhand with the hilt of his sword. Bern shows up, and completely curbstomps him.

* FragileSpeedster: His only advantage in battle is the raw speed granted him by the "pactio" collar. If anyone manages to land a blow on him, he crumples like a napkin.



* StrawMisogynist: The only thing revealed about his backstory is that he had a habit of raping women until they're completely broken and then killing them because he's bored that they're too traumatized to resist, and he publicly proclaimed the intent to do the same to Maytag, calling her a "dog to train" until Bern showed up.
* SuicidalOverconfidence: Combined with TemptingFate and MuggingTheMonster. When Bern challenged him to battle, not only did he think he'd already won, he called Bern "a dog to train", complained that she had too many clothes on, and insulted her ability because she told him to attack her first. One counter-attack later and he was literally on the end of a CurbstompBattle.

Added DiffLines:

* IGaveMyWord: She promises Bern that Polly will be revived regardless of Bern's personal opinion regarding the Arena, so that Bern would answer her honestly.

Added DiffLines:

* EyepatchOfPower: He wears an eyepatch, and is one of the best official Knights of he Order.


Added DiffLines:

* LoopholeAbuse: A positive example. It would be a crime for Crest or his mother to go get her magically inflicted blindness fixed by seeing a magical healer. This isn't an issue if he's paying the bill for it.
* RetiredBadass: Gave up being a Knight of the Order due to old age.

* LoopholeAbuse: When ordered to seize Maytag, he was told to make it a "clean" capture, that means "no witnesses, no innocent deaths." When Maytag was being stalked by an invisible man who sabotaged her costume so it would disintegrate on stage to ruin her chances at the comedy festival, Melter considered that sufficient to exempt him from the "no innocent deaths" clause.

* NoNameGiven: His name is never mentioned. Up until The Warden reveals the fate of Harringer, his predecessor, many forumites believed that he ''was Harringer'' in an EnemyWithin, SplitPersonalityTakeover, or SharingABody sense.
* PerpetualSmiler: The man just does not stop smiling, ever, not even when The Warden has a chain around his neck. [[spoiler: At least, not until The Warden Orders the Arena guards out of the room, and he starts to panic.]]

* HemaWomanHater: This character is ''highly'' misogynistic. Not only does he try to rape Bern for daring to defeat him in a sword duel, that he himself demanded, but when Maytag comes to Bern's rescue, he uses Bern as a hostage to demand that Maytag ''cut off her own breasts with a knife.'' Even Maytag was visibly shaken by that demand.

Added DiffLines:

** As well as parodying Son Goku from Dragon Ball, not only with his ProudWarriorRaceGuy motif, but in his WeaponOfChoice.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He speaks in polite, cheerful tones, and acts like an affable inn-keeper at all times, but is an utterly depraved individual who throughly exploits and abuses anyone and everyone unfortunate enough to become his "guest" and when he's done, either pawns them off to The Thin Man, or simply kills them and destroys their bodies. Considering what we've seen of the Thin Man's organization, the latter is likely to be the more merciful alternative.

* AttemptedRape: Using a magic collar he stole from Voulger, he beats down Bern, rips her clothes off and tries to rape her, for the "crime" of beating him in a duel that he demanded himself.
* HemaWomanHater: This character is ''highly'' misogynistic. Not only does he try to rape Bern for daring to defeat him in a sword duel, that he himself demanded, but when Maytag comes to Bern's rescue, he uses Bern as a hostage to demand that Maytag ''cut off her own breasts with a knife.'' Even Maytag was visibly shaken by that demand.
* IWasBeatenByAGirl: He took his loss to Bern very, very poorly.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: On both ends of this. Nobody cried for Voulger after what he did to Maytag, and nobody cried for Derrick after what he tried to do to Bern.
* SuicidalOverconfidence: Like most of the Knight Order, his sword skill isn't anywhere near as good as he thought it was.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: This is the official cover story used for why his "pactio" collar exploded "mysteriously exploded" and he wind up a laughing, drooling loon, unable to complete a coherent thought.


Added DiffLines:

* BitchInSheepsClothing: At first glance, he appears like an affable inn-keeper. In reality, he's a particularly depraved agent of The Thin Man.
* CarryABigStick: His weapon of choice is a magic staff that he can magically extend or retract at will. [[spoiler: At least until Glyph disables it.]]


Added DiffLines:

* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: According to Moss, his favorite hobby is drugging people with potions of possession without their knowledge or consent, controlling their bodies, and then using them to have sex with their companions. He displays this in graphic detail with Glyph, who was drugged into trying to have sex with Bern while she was also under the influence of a magical aphrodisiac without her knowledge or consent. What's truly horrific about all this, is that the people controlled in this manner are fully aware of what their bodies are doing, but completely helpless to do or say anything about it.

Added DiffLines:

* SmallRoleBigImpact: He doesn't appear very often, and his scenes are small. Still, every time he appears, the story changes in a ''big way.''

* AnOfferYouCantRefuse: While he ''claims'' that all his test subjects were experimented on, willingly, and he gives people the choice to refuse participation, one has to remember that nearly all of them were kidnap victims, he tried to outright con Maytag when she arrived, and he adamantly refuses to release any of his test subjects, if they adamantly decline to participate. What's worse is that he's well aware that he's surrounded by a PsychoSupporter group, and he sees nothing wrong with letting his "guests" be violated by if they're not useful to his agenda, whatever agenda that is.



** As time goes on (notably past the Dark Cell chapter), he seems to be shaping up more like an AntiVillain. His methods are unethical, but his primary goal appears to be to [[spoiler: expose the truth about magic]], and the results of his experiments were accidental. At least, if everything is to be believed.

Added DiffLines:

* NonStandardCharacterDesign: His moniker, "The Thin Man" is well deserved. Not only is he of such a slim build one would accuse him of anorexia, his fingers, hands, and all his limbs are exceptionally long and thin.

[[The Promoter/Administatror.]]
The first character met by Bern and Poly when they arive at the Arena to pay off Bern's sentence.

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: He would ultimately prove to be this [[spoiler: when he rigs a match by supplying the team that are Bern and Poly's opponent with fast-acting poison darts to force Bern into a LeonineContract.]]
* MrExposition: He's the one who explains the rules and environment of the Arena.
* NeckSnap: Or something close to it. [[spoiler: The Warden seizes him around the neck with her chain, slams him to the ground, and then after ordering the guards out of the room, either crushes his windpipe, chokes him to death, or shatters his neck. The panel is not exactly clear, although the result is that he dies.]]
* SmugSnake: He thinks he's in charge of the Arena. [[spoiler: The Warden would ultimately prove him wrong.]]
* VillainsWantMercy: His last words were begging the Warden to relase him. She doesn't comply.

* MachiavellyWasWrong: She was shocked when Bern won the "rank up" match without sacrificing her ideals in the process, especially considering that said match was rigged so that Bern's opponents could deliberately kill her without penalty, while if she killed them, even accidentally, she'd be penalized.
