The Gap into Mirror Land Wiki

Oh, he takes care of himself
He can wait if he wants
He's ahead of his time
Oh, and he never gives out
And he never gives in
He just changes his mind

"And I am not powerless to reward you. If you wish to share my rule over the Land, I will permit you. You will find I am not an uncongenial master"

And he'll promise you more
Than the Garden of Eden
Then he'll carelessly cut you
And laugh while you're bleedin'
But he'll bring out the best
And the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself
Cause he's always Lord Foul to me

Lord Foul[]

Lord Foul, The Despiser, a-Jeroth of the Seven Hells, Gray Slayer, The Maker, Fangthane the Render, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera... is known for his skills in making people's lives miserable, making them make their own and others' lives miserable and making monsters who can make others' lives even more miserable than their own are to start with. And that's only one of the names explained.

Appearance & Preferred Habitat[]

Lord Foul ready to receive visitors in Kiril Threndor.

Akin to any stereotypical supervillain, Foul loves to bask in an aura of mystery. While he does not wear a malicious mask à la Dr. Doom or Darth Vader, or attempt to conceal a grim, nefarious past behind the guise of a skeleton detective akin to Lord Vile, his preferred form consist of a vaguely man-shaped cloud of smoke stinking of attar and revealing a pair of carious, yellow eyes "like fangs".

His true likeness resembles a peeved Zeus: a powerfully built older man with a mane of flowing, white hair, clad in a billowing robe. He retains the venomous eyes, and can alter his height at will.

Lord Foul, like a stereotypical super-villain, feels

Lord Foul after having shapeshifted into an obsessive evil homing pigeon.

most at home in tenebrous and dank underground caves. He has dallied in the past with seaside properties, having an architect-designed beachfront home (that he named Foul's Crèche - God knows why. It's not as if he's running a kindergarten) built on the shores of the Sunbirth Sea. However, the Despiser's absolute favourite residence - and the one he keeps coming back to like some obsessive evil homing pigeon (which, admittedly, was one of his preferred shapeshifting forms ere his weakening) - is a spooky cavelike chamber named Kiril Threndor that is to be found within the bowels of Mount Thunder. This is not a particularly smart move, since if any band of wandering heroes ever feel like finding Lord Foul and giving him a piece of their mind, all they ever need do is head Mount Thunder-wards, because that's where he'll invariably be.


Gee, what do you reckon? You think there might be just a teensy weensy clue in his name? Put it this way, don't ever have him on your Christmas card list.
