In tropeland, there are good beards, evil beards, and badass beards. Then there's these. A character tried like hell to grow an impressive beard, but the result was stringy, scraggly, spotty and overall not all that great-looking.

Needs a better description.


  • Two noteworthy example in the Discworld books, both belonging to wizards, a traditionally bearded class. The first belongs to Rincewind, who has "the sort of beard worn by those who are not meant by nature to grow beards (paraphrased)", and Ponder Stibbons, who is stated to have tried and failed to grow a beard, and in the artwork appears to have the barest dusting of a goatee.
