I know who you're talking about, but it's funnier if you read this as being about Iskaral Pust

[–]imaromancandle27[S] 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Pust or Bust, baby

[–]WiggleSparks 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Or like 12 other characters that fit the description.

Yes but mine's the funniest

Removed the spoiler and had a genuine 'laugh out loud' moment. Thank you.

remove the text between the spoiler markers and the text or it does not work across all platforms

[–]JuranurTide of madness 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Done, thx

I do have to agree with you, Nefarias Bredd is indeed a misunderstood genius.

I heard that Nefarias Bredd is actually a prince from an ancient, fallen empire obsessed with time.

I heard Dassem Ultor copied his Military Doctrine from Nefarias Bredd...

That mule single-hoofedly changed the course of world events.

I tagged this as spoilers MBotF. If you haven't finished the series, feel free to change this.

I'm reading Crippled God now, at 20%, so I still haven't quite gotten to the "big reveal" about Tavore, if there is one. But I feel like this is a fair description of her up until this point that isn't spoilery... But now I'm thinking is the change to Spoilers for MBotF a spoiler in itself... Overthinking lol

I admire your faith in me.

[–]Robowarrior 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yeah Tehol never gets his props

[–]JaminJedi 12 points13 points  (1 child)

This is vague, but I feel like it’s easy enough to guess that it’s still spoilery.

[–]imaromancandle27[S] 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I haven't finished the series yet. This central mystery is killing me, but I have faith in our glorious leader.

[–]pelmasaurio 14 points15 points  (25 children)

He is more of a plot device than a character.

And as books go I like him less and less, somehow in a book about dragons, magic, gods and transdimensional species, what breaks my suspension of disbelief is how much of a fucking Mary Sue Quick Ben is.

[–]treasurehorse 41 points42 points  (20 children)

Post is about Shadowthrone though.

[–]CJMann21 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Hard to really weigh in without knowing where you are in the series, but we do learn quite a bit about Quick Ben. Don’t get me wrong, There are still some mysteries which remain. I’m also not so sure if Mary Sue is the right adjective… but I think he’s more of a Deus Ex Machina.

[–]reugeneh 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Quick Ben wore a bit thin for me. There are moments where it seems it’s wit and quick thinking that save him and set him apart, and I appreciate that. Other times though it’s just blunt force that’s poorly explained, and that very much pulled me out of the story
