Special Sub-Topic: Drizzt Do'Urden
|What color are Drizzt's eyes?|
lavender. Drizzt is the only dark elf to have lavender eyes. This makes him an outcast since the beginning of his story. In fact, his name means "outcast" in elvish.
|"Drizzit" was a name that Drizzt was called by some surface people when trying to pronounce his name.|
t. Drizzt has to correct many people for making this mistake when pronouncing his name. In fact, the author had to correct his secretary when giving her the name of the new character for his new book. (This can be seen in the foreword in "The Dark Elf Trilogy").
|Catti-Brie is the first surface friend that Drizzt makes.|
false. Mooshie was his first surface friend; or, as he was rightly called, Montolio. Drizzt first met him when he left Menzoberrezan.
|Whom does Drizzt teach to fight?|
Wulfgar. Wulfgar was Bruenor's adopted son, and he needed someone how to teach him how to fight. Wulfgar was one of the few barbarians that survived the battle in the Ten Towns in "The Crystal Shard." Bruenor took him because he was so young. Regis is the halfling and Drizzt doesn't teach him how to fight. Regis tends to use a little mace for fighting, or his ruby necklace. Delly is the woman that Wulfgar comes to love and they "adopt" a daughter together--Colson, literally meaning "not son".
|Drizzt fights with twin sabers, Twinkle and Icingdeath.|
false. He fights with scimitars, not sabers. In fact, when he was still living in the Underdark, there was a test to see what the male drow would grow up to be. The test was for him to take coins and flip them in his hands. He caught all of the coins that he tossed into the air, so he became a warrior.
|Where does Drizzt consider his rightful home?|
|This is easy--What race is Drizzt?|
Dark Elf. Dark elves use infared vision to see in the Under Dark in the city of Menzoberrazan. Drizzt saved a moon elf on one of the Dark elves surface raids. A hobbit is in JRR Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" Trilogy, and they were not included in these stories. Bruenor, of course, was the lovable dwarf in these stories.
|What was the worst thing that Drizzt had to cope with when going to the surface?|
the sun. Since he uses infared vision, the sunlight hitting the snow was hard for him to cope with. He tended to walk about in the shadows to ease the pain that his eyes went through when he first got on the surface.
|Zankafien was Drizzt's father. (read carefully)|
false. Zaknafein (not Zankafien) was his father; he was also against the horrible conditions in their city. He was perhaps one of the only ones, besides Drizzt himself, that was not for the harshness and cruelty that the female drow put upon the male drow.
|Which goddess does Drizzt follow as a result of befriending Montolio?|
Mielikki. After traveling with Montolio aka Mooshie, Drizzt follows the same goddess that Mooshie did, Mielikki. Tempus was Wulfgar's god- he yelled this out when going into battle. Aphrodite is the goddess of love in Greek mythology. Jupiter is the Roman equivalent to the Greek god Zeus- the god of the sky.
