* CompleteMonster: [[AristocratsAreEvil Baron Bela Stoke]] is the [[BigBad main villain]] of the ''The Eye of the Hunter'', and in a series chock-full of sadistic {{Evil Sorcerer}}s, he stands out from the crowd. A sickening fusion of evil aristocrat, necromancer, MadScientist, and TortureTechnician, Stoke's standard MO is to move into a region whose people are unfamiliar with him and begin abducting the locals so he can perform horrific, Mengele-esque experiments on them until they die (with the addition of potions that both increase painful sensations and keep victims alive longer than naturally possible) and then uses their corpses in his necromantic rites. He keeps this up for ''centuries'', leaving a swath of gruesome murders behind him while racking up a body count at least in the hundreds (possibly into the thousands). In the process, a group of heroes (mostly friends or relatives of his victims) assembles for the soul purpose of hunting this guy down and ridding the world of him, regardless of how many years or decades it may take, because killing Stoke is something that needs doing ''just that much''. At the end of the novel, he reanimates the corpses of his victims into a legion of undead warriors he intends to use to conquer the world, apparently ForTheEvulz, and indicates that he'd murder his own father (and mentor) Ydral if he felt it necessary to protect the secret of this working.

* CompleteMonster: Many of the villains, especially the Black Mages considering [[PoweredByAForsakenChild what they have to do to make their magic work]]. Baron Stoke is probably the most extreme example, combining the worst traits of an [[AristocratsAreEvil evil nobleman]], MadScientist, EvilSorcerer, and TortureTechnician.
