The Light Fantastic Persons – Alphabetical

This list contains the same persons as the chronological list of the persons in The Light Fantastic. It’s just that they’re in, well, alphabetical order instead.

Belafon – Druid who could fly large stones and land them atop two other upright stones in a stone circle.

Beryl – Wife of Kwartz.

Bethan – Saved from ritual sacrifice against her will. Marries Cohen the Barbarian. Fate probably had something to say about it all.

Blind Io – Chief of the gods who live at Dunmanifestin. He appears to be blind but has many eyes outside his body.

Breccia – Daughter of Kwartz?

Bursar, The – At UU, but not a wizard. Needs his dried frog pills. Aka Mr. Dinwiddie.

Cimbar the Assassin – Legendary warrior. Nothing else known about him.

Cohen the Barbarian – Ghenghiz Cohen. The Disc’s greatest warrior, a legend in his own time. Or as he says, “I’m a lifetime in my own legend.”

Seriph Creosote – Of Al Khali. Of his father originated the phrase, “Rich as Creosote”. (Read about Croesus, if you’re unfamiliar.)

Dahoney – When Dahoney speaks, people look at other people’s left ear when they speak.

Dean of Liberal Studies – One of several swallowed by The Luggage in The Light Fantastic. He might not be missed.

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.

Galder Weatherwax – Supreme Grand Conjuror of the Order of the Silver Star, Lord Imperial of the Sacred Staff, Eighth Level Ipsissimus and 304th Chancellor of Unseen University…to his friends.

Ganmack Treehallet – Senior wizard of the Venerable Seers.

Granny Whitlow – Made cottages entirely of sweets. Popular but impractical.

Ly Tin Wheedle – A famous philosopher. I’m certain his name means something, but I don’t know what.

Twoflower (aka Two Flower, by those who do not know him well) – A tourist from the Agatean Empire who arrives in Ankh-Morpork with the Luggage.

Weems – One of Gancia’s mercenaries. Slightly smarter and eventually slightly more alive than Gancia.

Ymper Trymon – 2nd in command to Galder Weatherwax. Movin’ on up, if he has anything to say about it.

Zakriah – Coworker of Belafon at the stone circle.
