Character. His name is Jaddar and he is a human! The most virulent and rotten vizier of the Nabadeen castle. Even the shah himself abhors this guy, but keeps him only because of his adder menace and ploy. Jaddar is way more intelligent than anybody in the palace, he is an effective weapon against the unwilling and unwanted 'crooks' of the kingdom. The shah himself could not produce that much of malice to silence his foes and to inquest the traitors. When he needs a weapon of sublime diplomacy - he calls his adder henchman. Long tongues say, Jaddar even knows the pathways to the underground library, which is located not really far from the underground prison of the castle, to where Jaddar and the shah cast down the prosecuted ones with easiness. At nights, the library is filled with moans and wailing.
