YMMV / Drachenfels

  • The Woobie: Vargr Breughel, Detlef's stage manager and best friend is one of the most tragic characters in Warhammer fiction. He's a human with dwarfism who constantly gets mistaken for a dwarf (as in the species) and has to put up with racism from both sides. He also a mutant whose mutations are radily growing out of control and he is having difficulty keeping his sanity and sense of self. After being discovered and framed for murder he commits suicide, choosing to die as a person rather than a monster.
