The much missed Rodish could be said to be the dwarf’s dwarf. No mine was too deep for him to work in, he had an impressive gold finding record and was a stable, courageous member of the Queen’s Council and eventually Council Leader (though he refused to wear the red tights - there are some things no self respecting dwarf would ever do and everyone else on the Council knew better than to argue. By all means argue with a dwarf but then don't moan if the Council meeting seems to go on forever - it will!). Rodish also represented not just his kind but what we would think of as his constituency well. Rodish, along with L’Evallier, came to question Brankaresh’s loyalty and motives. Rodish was eventually set up by Brankaresh go to an unpleasant fate of the Chief Witch’s choosing, though even she put up a placard on his gibbet commending his courage, something she had never done for anyone else.
AND WHAT I DISLIKE!
Very litle though Rodish was very intense (but ask any dwarf and they'd say "So?").
