Rodish likes a decent beer and imports good quality stuff from earth. He accepts it is one of the better things humanity has come up with. (The Queen thinks it's chocolate).
Brankaresh, Chief Wizard, knows he cannot bribe either Rodish or L’Evallier and that they both want to do the best they can for their communities. Rodish eventually pays the price for standing up to evil when the Witch and Brankaresh try to overthrow the Queen. Brankaresh sets Rodish up to be killed by the Witch, who thoughtfully leaves him in a gibbet in his constituency that Rodish had gone back to defend. But even the Witch leaves a note saying Rodish fought well…. so he must have put up one hell of a fight. Courageous to the end, Rodish is the dwarf’s dwarf.
