Default Malekith the Doucher

I'm 61 pages into Malektih: A Tale of the Sundering and already I hate this guy with a passion of a thousand suns. This guy is seriously a grade-A jackass; totally stuck up, cares little for the lives of his own men and even less for the lives of others. I know elves are famous for being a bunch of bastards, but Malekith takes that up to 11; if I was an elf back in the day, I'd want to punch this jerk in the face with spiked knuckles. Seriously, this guy's head is stuck so far up his own ass that he should have collapsed into a singularity and consumed the entire universe already.

Then there's the part where he first meets the Dwarves, and they invite him to travel with them back to Karaz-a-Karak, and he doubts whether or not it will be worth his time. SERIOUSLY? The Dwarves' idea of a political ice-breaker is to get piss-assed drunk, so you can only imagine what they do for fun. Probably rock and roll all night, and party every day, if famous scholars/rockers KISS are to be believed.


Anyway, I wanted to get other people's opinions on this one, because my hatred of the Dark Elves is no secret here at Heresy, but even you Dark Elf players have to admit this guy is a total jerkass. Cast your vote!

well, whose fault is it? his dad said to him repeatedly "one day you will be king" his mum said to him "one day you will be king" his friends said to him "one day you will be king". after being told that for a couple of centuries he is bound to become a big headed jerk. then his (already insane) mother sells her soul to slannesh, his dad was cursed by Khanie, hardly a good atmosphere for raising a kid is it? i am realy not suprised he went of the rails.
any way, he is a part of the warhammer world, and he is stuck there, so quit whining.

You do know that one of the biggest traits of dark elves is arrogance? One might argue why your reading the book if you don't like that sort of personality.

Same reason why one might learn certain subjects at school. You may not like it but the knowlage is handy. I took A-Level maths for the same reason, theres no way its going to help in law but it sure helps to know. Anyway, planning my future aside, its also good to know both sides of the story as well as digging into one of the best features of our hobby, its fluff

Btw, hes an arsehole

Thanks Proccor for the awsum sig

After 10 years of relentless shelling, the hive is reduced to naught but rubble and dust, two years after all signs of life ceased and five years after the hive issued its unconditional surrender.

I dont want to hear any more flashlight joke alright, there just guide lights for the artilery

I've not read the book yet but since it has been written by the horror that is "The Throp" (Gave Thorpe) it doesn't suprise me that what could have been an exciting piece about how a mighty hero could be corrupted by power and turn into a megalomaniac and Badass Motherfucker (literally), would instead be an unsubtle badly written book about an obvious complete bastard who does lots of bad things and ends up still being an obvious complete bastard.

I love the Dark Elf background but have been dreading reading the book. I read the preview chapter and that was bad enough for me.

Funnily enough, I like him. He's got the ruthlessness, and strength that the Elves required at the time. However, Asur saw that he could be too ruthless, having grown up during a time when to be ruthless was required, not to mentionbeing in a Region that took the brunt of the Daemons assaults... Naw... He's an okay guy.
