The great Glarbo was a paid-up member of the Supernatural and Fantastic
, but she never attended the banquets or other
events. She was not one to engage in frequet socializations, especially
considering everyone constantly made fun of her because of her big
feet, and only wanted to be left alone.
The fearsome monster, roughly of humanoid form, was described as being
surrounded by a darkness that swirled and stetched as if the darkness
were a living extension of Glarbo. With both fire coming from its
nostrils, and wielding a gigantic sword in one hand usually laid flat
across its massive chest, one did not dare to disobey the frequently
spoken words, "You cannot pass!"
Glarbo's slow and deeply-pitched laugh was rumored to be prophetic.
Whatever was discernable, was the listeners destiny. For example,
"Boom, Boom" foretold that Glorian of the Knowledge
would be spending
time with Amitia
, "Groom, Groom" told of Mirakles
' destiny of marriage
to Princess Melithiel
, "Flume, Flume" hinted that Spike
would lead the
rest of his party back to the Slide Room, and "Doom, Doom" warned Ed
the Embedded Character
that he would be dead soon.
Glarbo assisted Glorian of the Knowledge during his adventure with
Mirakles in both delivering a letter from the Autoexec
supernatural being as well as providing the party with various
prophetic utterances of debatable nature.
TRIVIA: Glarbo is an anagram of Balrog
(but coincidences like these are
not meant to be taken seriously, since Glarbo is not a Balrog)
