* Sparhawk of Creator/DavidEddings' ''Literature/TheElenium'' is a [[ShellShockedVeteran world-weary]], cynical knight, old before his time who will readily cooperate with and ally with career criminals against far more terrible evils and [[CombatPragmatist readily establish a reputation for savagery in combat]] to convince enemies not to fight. Nonetheless, he has an ironclad sense of personal honor and dignity, and his bark is generally far worse than his bite.
** Which is to say that, while he threatens to do a ''lot'' of horrible things, he only actually does ''some'' of them. In the last book of the Tamuli trilogy, he does nothing to prevent one of his allies from setting a man on fire and imprisoning him forever in a frozen moment, where nothing moves. So not only will that man burn forever in the space between every second, he'll be forever alone as well even if he did find some way to douse himself. Of course, the first thing that man did was try to jump in the nearby lake... which was as solid as the ground at the shore due to time not moving. It's demonstrated elsewhere in the series that that kind of frozen moment means it's impossible to move anything not provided exemption like the man in question.
