But unlike Durkon and Vampire!Durkon Belkar and his vampire spirit will be best friends. They'll alternate who controls depending on who can produce the most lols at the moment, constantly trying to one-up each other. Kinda like a split personality with one personality being more of a snarky comedic sociopath and the other being gleefully over the top laughably evil.

Although she believed herself to be LawfulGood, the fact that she killed Shojo, began acting under her own code instead of actual laws, and was generally a terrible person, she wasn't particularly lawful or good by the end of her life. Eugene Greenhilt is in line for the Lawful Good afterlife primarily because he committed lawful good acts rather than because he cared about staying true to his alignment, and these two things apparently have the same effect, making him appear properly Lawful Good in the eyes of the CelestialBureaucracy. Since Miko tried so hard to be LG that she almost hit the other extreme (that extreme being CE), then for all intents and purposes she will be considered as Chaotic Evil (or TrueNeutral, at best), especially since she died unredeemed and post-death Alignment shifts don't appear to count for anything.

Xykon doesn't want to see the world destroyed, since that would kill him. He'd rather take it over. Hel's high priest will succeed in Dominating the Dwarven Council, but Xykon, in the area looking for Kraagor's Gate, will find out what's going on (possibly from the Order themselves) and [[VillainousRescue solve the problem]] by [[CuttingTheKnot killing all the dominated elders]] so they can't advise the First King to end the world. Redcloak will be incensed at this since Hel's plan would have fulfilled the Dark One's goals as well and this will become a catalyst for the inevitable break between Redcloak and Xykon.

[[WMG: Tarquin will be killed by Sabine]]
He'll die by the very genre conventions he trumpets. The lone defector (sort of, not so much 'defecting' as 'persuing her own thing for a bit') from an evil faction and agent of chaos avenging a fallen loved one on the tyrant who refused to see said loved one's value. It has everything! The hero being the only one who saw value in their fallen icon, the villain's forgotten actions coming back to haunt them, victory through the power of love, the intense personal emotions of family, one individual versus the might of an empire, all the elements.

BUT! Because Sabine is a DEMON, nobody will see her as a hero, and nobody will see Tarquin as the villain. He'll just be some shmuck who had dealings with devils backfire on him; and even though from the perspective with all the information a great story will have been told, IN-UNIVERSE nobody will remember or care.

Burlew will not show us this because he is a diva who has come to hate Tarquin to the point of implausibly denying all his good characteristics, intentionally drawing out and making more boring the arc to try and manipulate the readers into wanting to be rid of him, and because he thinks that taking a victory based on defying resolution to a situation to a meta level isn't a bloody obnoxious thing to do; but it will still have happened.
* [[SarcasmMode Nice conspiracy theory.]]

* Belkar promised... He had to, his master wouldn't tell him what the promise was until the oath had been cast, and Belkar Bitterleaf ''never'' went back on a promise... At least not until the day that Lord Brightpistil told him to act Chatic Evil to destroy the Evil MacguffinGirl, and save the world. He blocked Miko's Detect Evil to keep from revealing his true alignment even by the virtue of his own virtue, let alone his words or actions. Xyko's from the D&D equivalent of [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Halloweentown]], where [[WMG/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas doing murders to people isn't a bad thing]], and Redcloak faked every moment of compassion he showed onscreen, only wanting to get his brother out of the way and more easilycontrol the Goblin kingdoms.

** I think this could be technically considered Jossed. Nale absolved any allegiance to Tarquin before Tarquin killed him in revenge for Malack and the host of other crap Nale did. From that very limited definition, Tarquin did not actually ''betray'' Nale.

He said that [[Loophole Abuse nothing alive]] can get through that shell. With the focus on Belkar's character development, and the growing possibility of his impending death, a HeroicSacrifice is a logical conclusion.
