* MomentOfWeakness: His anger at [[spoiler:being exiled without even being able to say goodbye to his mother or making sure she would be okay without him; coming from the person who said misery build character, that is saying something. This anger is a driving force for the vampire that possessed him, as the vampire claims that its personality comes from the darkest memories in Durkon's mind and that his will to annihilate the Dwarven lands is motivated by that one moment where Durkon cursed them.]]

* MinMaxing: Averted. None of the characters have made perfect builds, often making choices that fit their characters, rather than what makes them the most effective. Durkon's focus on healing, for instance, or Roy's high intelligence.
** Elan explicitly does this when he starts branching into healing magic (a result of his experience swith Therkla) -- however, Elan's build is also the most optimized of the party given that his strongest stat (Charisma) is the primary stat used for both his base and prestige classes (this adds a bit of irony considering that, it's [[TheDitz Elan.]]
