Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticVillainy: Despite being a very dangerous and wicked spellcaster, Baba Yaga is a very passive force of evil in the world, and generally keeps to herself until she's provoked. Even then, she usually satisfies herself with curses and hexes rather than destroying her enemies outright. And while she very well ''can'' devour the Hero if she desires, she ultimately leaves him off the menu; In ''I'' she lets him live when he proves useful by running an errand for her (which comes back to bite her when you return and turn the tables on her with the magic mirror). By the time of ''IV'' she's decided eating the Hero is altogether ''far'' more trouble than it's worth, and finds the various snacks the Hero brings her in exchange for her help and advice much more appealing, anyway.

* 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. He has also developed some form of {{Invisibility}}.]]

* 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!" The Graveyard at night is filled with ghosts that will either kill you, or drag you to hell on sight.

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.
