* {{Magitek}}: {{Downplayed|Trope}} by the ''Mechane'' herself. Her hull is enchanted for greater strength and lightness, and the helium for her balloon is summoned from the Elemental Plane of Air, but she otherwise operates according to mundane physical mechanics of lighter-than-air buoyancy and airfoil thrust.

* AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder: Sara diagnoses this as the source of most of his problems. He's a very focused guy, and when he wants something he gives it his all, whether it's avenging his master, being a good husband and father, or just inventing new spells. But he gets bored easily, failing to follow through on any of his "projects" in anything but a half-assed kind of way, and the one he ''can't'' just abandon, like his family or, after his death, his oath to destroy Xykon, quickly leave him resentful and unhappy.

'''Alignment:''' LawfulGood (at time of death[[note]]He is currently waiting for a member of his family to fulfill the BloodOath he made years ago to slay Xykon; until that time, he is stuck in a limbo-like plane of existence where the deceased go to see which afterlife they are suited for. Based on Roy's judgement, it is implied that he is not really LawfulGood, or rather that he has failed to live up to the responsibilities of his alignment, and had not truly been LawfulGood for several years. The Prequel comic indicated that he would have been allowed in at the time of his death, but his impatience and inability to do anything has since resulted in an alignment shift. In fact, the most recent comics suggest he may have shifted all the way to LawfulEvil, as he's perfectly willing to let the world be destroyed since Xykon would be destroyed with it and that would technically fulfill his oath.[[/note]])

** Thanks to that incident, Roy is GenreSavvy enough to have a specifically-worded question prepared, to prevent the Oracle from doing this during his second visit. Unfortunately, Roy's question is ''so'' specifically-worded that he manages to outsmart himself. The Oracle ''did'' try to warn him.

* GenreSavvy: He knows that due to an existing truce between the gods, spells of a cleric (any cleric) have higher priority than those of a god's over his domain, despite this looking very illogical. He uses it to prove to the team that Thor still favors him. The team, being less than savvy in clerical magic, buys it. He also knows that Belkar will not necessarily be loyal to Hel if turned, so instead of just turning him, he [[spoiler:magically silences him, Polymorphs into a giant wolf, bites him a few times, and throws him off a cliff. He also knows that he doesn't actually need to defeat Roy, only stall him long enough, so when Roy starts kicking his ass, he backs off from the fight and activates an ''antilife shell'', which magically prevents Roy from hitting him so long as he remains passively inside it.]]

A spirit sent by the goddess Hel to control Durkon's corpse as a vampire. It has access to all of Durkon's memories, and is fooling the Order into believing Durkon is just a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire.

* ArtifactTitle: He's not ''actually'' the High Priest of the Church of Hel anymore (having given it up to a random vamp cleric at the Godsmoot), but is still referred to as such because he (a) is not Durkon, (b) hasn't given himself an alternative name, and (c) [[ArsonMurderOfJaywalking is hard to come up with a good name for]], as the Order of the Stick can testify.

* RevengeBeforeReason: [[spoiler:He would be perfectly happy to see the world destroyed if it meant killing Xykon.]] What keeps this firmly PlayedForLaughs is the fact that he can't actually act on this, due to being, you know, ''dead''.

* OmnicidalManiac: [[PlayedForLaughs Played For]] BlackComedy; he comments about allowing the [[spoiler:gods to destroy the world to stop the Snarl]], as it would destroy Xykon and let him to pass on. He only withdraws the opinion when Roy points out that this would [[spoiler:condemn all the Dwarves to hell.]] and even then his sultionis to have them all go out and get them selfs killed first.
