* HeelFaceTurn: Apparently did this after {{Downplayed}}, as he wasn't very evil, even though he was with the first brigands, and even though the fighter has to fight him. He was probably there simply to be with Elsa. He is shown in the crowd at the end of the game, joining Elsa after even if the brigands are driven from Spielburg.fighter defeated him.



* BadassNormal: He doesn't have any magic powers or superhuman abilities in a game series filled with such beings, but trying to attack him at any point in the first game will automatically result in a serious case of poisoned knife in the chest, no matter how tough your character is or what sort of magic they use. [[spoiler:It's not until he is revealed as the Assassin in ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryV'' that you will have a straight-up fight with him that you can actually win.]]

* KnifeNut: He's very quick with the throwing knives.
* KnowledgeBroker: He acts the part in the first game, but the information he offers is available in other, less expensive ways. Bruno is only there to prevent the game from becoming {{Unwinnable}}.

This will reduce you to a pile of ashes in the first game. "The thieves' guild is in the graveyard, head over there at nighttime!"

* SmugSnakeSmugSnake, but genuinely lethal.



An ogress witch with a taste for human flesh and a mean streak a mile wide. She serves as the GreaterScopeVillain for the original game, her curse being the reason everything bad is happening in Spielburg. After you break the curse and get rid of her, she returns in game 4, hanging out in Mordavia because of the dark energy given off by the Dark One's cave. She isn't fully antagonistic in this game, despite her desire for revenge (which can be bought off), but you still have to deal with her to win.

* HandicappedBadass: The Hero can challenge him the day before he leaves for Raseir, and the player will find that even with a bad leg, he still puts up a damn good fight.
** This is also the reason why he can not fight off the Earth Elemental, having to rely on the Hero to do it.

* {{Badass}}: BadassNormal: Somewhat. The While this did happen offscreen, the guy still has no powers other than his sword skills and managed to slay a troll, as the Adventurer's Guild logbook can attest.



* FakeWizardry: Most of his "magic" is fake, the result of using intelligence, props, (like powders to blind somebody, or them itch or sneeze uncontrollably) and the like. What little real magic he does is so rudimentary that any non-magic user can do it if someone teaches them the right incantations or gives them the right ingredients.



* UndyingLoyalty: To Elsa

to:

* UndyingLoyalty: To ElsaElsa. He journeyed out into the dangerous countryside to find her as a child, and after discovering her among the brigands, he has been protecting her ever since. This became very useful once she became the brigand leader, as ambitious underlings looking to overthrow her would first have to deal with Yorick and get past his trap filled labyrinth.

Added DiffLines:

* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: He cares very much for his city and its people, and the feeling is mutual, pretty much every single character will refer to him in some manner of "May he reign/live/rule forever", due to his wisdom and benevolent rule. [[spoiler:And there is a very good justification for how he can know the city so well when he is fabled to remain in his palace: he actually observes the city under the guise of the Poet Omar...]] Also, further points for him since before relying on a Hero, he DID try to take matters into his hands regarding Raseir, by sending an army there.
