Welcome to the alphabetical list of the persons in Sourcery. Glad you could make it. If you came here by mistake and were really looking for the chronological list of the same persons, just go here instead.
Ardrothy Longstaff – Purveyor of Pies Full of Personality. According to Ardrothy, “It wasn’t bad enough that wizards were killing people”. What really bothered him was that “they were taking away their livelihood as well.”
Benado Sconner – Responsible for the burning of the Library, thus, “it is not worth committing his name to memory.”
Blind Io – Chief of the gods who live at Dunmanifestin. He appears to be blind but has many eyes outside his body.
Broomfog – Author of Anima Unnaturale which contains an amazing description of a chimera.
Cohen the Barbarian – The Disc’s greatest warrior, a legend in his own time. Or as he says, “I’m a lifetime in my own legend.”
Coin – Eighth son of Ipslore who was, in turn, an eighth son, making Coin a Sourcerer. No last name given.
Conina – Daughter of Cohen the Barbarian. We probably should leave it at that.
Death – An anthrpomorphic personification comprised of a skeleton, covered in a black robe, and holding a scythe (or a sword, for kings). He communicates in CAPTIAL LETTERS without the quotation marks.
Famine – Associated with Death.
Fate – One of the game-playing gods in Dunmanifestin.
Grand Vizier Abrim – Creosote’s Vizier. Possesses and is possessed by the Archchancellor’s hat…until he isn’t.
Gravie Derment – A Sage of the Unknown Shadow. A bit outspoken, but we only hear him speak a few times.
Great A’Tuin – He or she is the turtle who moves through space in the Discworld universe. On his or her back are 4 elephants. On the backs of the elephants rests the Disc itself.
Gritoller Mimpsey – Vice-president (in Sourcery) of the Thieves’ Guild. Once a bethieved victim of Conina.
Harebut – The Provision Merchant. Father of Nijel the Destroyer.
Hashishim – Named for the vast quantities of hashish they consumed. For occupation, see Thugs.
Ice Giants – Pests to the gods in Dunmanifestin. Giants can be that way.
Imtal – He had 2 beards, whoever he was.
Ipslore the Red – Father and member of the staff (literally) of Coin the Sourcerer.
Larry the Fox / Fezzy the Stoat – Probably not his real name. His real name will not be frozen in time like he was.
(Head) Librarian – Formerly human, now simian. Favorite (and nearly only) word: Oook.
Luggage, The – A mysterious box made of sapient pearwood that ambles about on hundreds of tiny feet. It arrived in Ankh-Morpork with Twoflower.
Ly Tin Wheedle – A famous philosopher. I’m certain his name means something, but I don’t know what.
M. C. Escher – Of the roundworld. Mentioned in a footnote (more than one) reference to the topology of the Library at UU.
Marmaric Carding – Of the Hoodwinkers. Touched Coin’s staff one too many times. To be fair, he had been warned.
Miskin Koble – Purveyor of jellied starfish and clams, though better known for leaving his smoking boots and nothing else.
Nijel the Destroyer – Not known for having destroyed anything. He’s read how to, though. Marries Conina…probably after reading about it.
Offler – The Crocodile God who has difficulty with speech due to his fang-like teeth – not unlike the speaking problems encountered by all crocodiles.
Ovin Hakardly – A lecturer in Lore. Managed not to be a has-been in the presence of Coin and his staff.
Patrician of Ankh – The leader of the city of Ankh-Morpork. You know him cordially as Havelock Vetinari.
Pestilence – Associated with Death.
Rincewind – A seemingly minor wizard who plays a major role in several Discworld novels. He is extremely good at running away.
Seriph Creosote – Of Al Khali. Of his father originated the phrase, “Rich as Creosote”. (Read about Croesus, if you’re unfamiliar.)
Skarmer Billias – Head (in Sourcery) of the Order of the Silver Star (as was Galder Weatherwax)…until he wasn’t.
Spelter – Current (in Sourcery) bursar of Unseen University…until he wasn’t.
Thugs – Named for “the way they push people’s faces through the back of their heads.
Virrid Wayzygoose – Most likely to be the next Archchancellor (in Sourcery) of Unseen University…until he wasn’t.

Woddeley – Author of several works including his Occult Primer.
Wuffles – The Patrician’s “exceedingly elderly wire haired terrier”. Loyal, even when his master is a yellow-green lizard.
