* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist: Claims to be a WellIntentionedExtremist to Elan; he's an evil overlord but the people will be better off without the constant wars and regime changing. Considering what he intends to let Malack do after he is gone, all for a bigger statue, he really doesn't have anyone else's best interests in mind. He just wants to build and run an [[TheEmpire Evil Empire]] because his worldview demands that he do so for Elan's story. Anything and anyone outside of that specific context is, at best, irrelevant to Tarquin.

A group of mainly LawfulEvil adventurers who have been around since a long time, they've now settled down into prestigious positions and play powerful roles of influence in the Western continent. They're "led" by [[spoiler:Elan's father]] General Tarquin, though they don't adhere to his authority seriously and he's only considered leader in the sense that it is his master plan they're all following.

** The [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0753.html first display of blatant homosexuality]] in the comic ([[FauxYay though very obviously BS to try and keep secret]]), and Tarquin just tells the "admirer" that he's engaged.

* DeaderThanDead: [[spoiler:He originally died 200 years ago, and it'd take a 20th-level caster with True Resurrection to even try to bring him back. On top of that, the person it brought back wouldn't be truly Malack, since the vampire calling himself Malack is sort of a separate entity, while the lizardfolk cleric who became him was a very different person.]]
