Characters: Myth Adventures
Here is a list of characters found in the Myth Adventures series of books:


  • Brought Down to Badass - A prank gone wrong removes his magic skills, but he's still one tough cookie.
  • Guile Hero - The moment he opens his mouth, you're about to be conned.
  • Insistent Terminology - He's a Pervect, not a Pervert.
  • Made of Iron: Superior muscle strength and very tough scales allow Pervects to shrug off glancing hits from swords and such. As well as allowing them to yank iron bars out of walls and other such party tricks.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family
  • Papa Wolf - Go ahead, threaten Skeeve in front of him. Or, you know, don't.
  • Parental Neglect - He admits to Skeeve that he mostly left his kids' upbringing to other people.
  • The Reptilians - Scaled, green, short, and strong as all get out, with pointed ears. Unlike typical Lizard Folk, he's also very, very intelligent and used to be a great magician. (And, you know, a hero.)
  • Trickster Mentor - Especially to Skeeve.



Don Bruce


  • Pokémon Speak - at least at first.
  • Some Call Me Tim - He tells the audience they might as well stick with "Gleep", as he doesn't have the patience to coach them through the proper pronunciation of his real name.
  • Team Pet

Guido and Nunzio

  • Badass Normal: Unfortunately, they hang out with so many Trolls, Pervects, and hyper-competent assassins and magicians that they tend to be overshadowed a lot.
  • The Mafia: These two are lighthearted and occasionally subverted stereotypes of the trope.

King Roderick

  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Poor Roddy might have had a long and prosperous reign. But he died mysteriously and with very convenient timing. As it happens, he really did die mysteriously with convenient timing... of natural causes.


  • Hidden Depths: Like most of the characters, there's a lot more to her, especially once you get to hear things from her POV.
  • I Was Quite a Fashion Victim: Well, maybe not in her eyes, but between the loud fashion sense and tons of magical dodads, she still is.
  • The Nicknamer: Her default mode; examples include Hot Stuff, Dark and Deadly, Green and Scaly, and on one memorable occasion, Short and About To Become Extinct.
  • Obfuscating Vanity: Uses said fashion victim clothing, garish makeup, and loud, brash personality to hide her dependence on magical jewelry to do all her spellwork—and also her sensitivity and vulnerability thanks to being so overweight.
  • Sad Clown: Once you get past the irreverent jokes and naughty humor.
  • Stripperiffic: She dresses in a scanty fashion. Which is not doing anybody (except Hugh Badaxe) any favors Fanservice-wise.
    Skeeve: I've always meant to ask; why don't you, ah... wear more?

Queen Hemlock


  • Beware the Nice Ones: Skeeve is pretty scary when he really loses his temper.
  • Guile Hero - he gets better at it as he goes along. Makes sense, seeing as he started life as a thief.
  • Magnetic Hero - Most of the friends and allies tend to look to him as leader, though Aahz and Bunny can give him a run for the money, sometimes...
  • Nice Guy - He's not top of the heap in brains, brawn or magical power; he tends to end up as the leader because he's likeable.
