Description

The "mastermind" and central figure behind Chapter 4. William Shakespeare, also known as the Tragic Bard, was a great historical artist and a prophet that wrote many plays including Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, and The Story of Golvan. He also staged events that would lead to The Merchant of Venice and Macbeth.

Shakespeare also was the very first Milletian to venture into Erinn. However, this, as well as his ability to foresee the future and attempt to change it, made him a target of the Gods.

Trivia

Shakespeare as described by Duncan and Marlowe, as he appears young, old, as an Elf, and as a Giant. Mentioned in Generation 13 and Generation 15.
  • Shakespeare using a magic flute to lure away rats and later children from Avon is based on the legend of the Pied Piper of Hamelin.
  • According to Marlowe, one of Shakespeare's "reborn" forms was an Elf and a Giant, despite that it is currently impossible for players to rebirth into another race.
    • This may explain why Shakespeare has skills from other Races in Generation 16.
  • In Shakespeare of Mag Tuireadh, he fights with a Lightning Wand although he has a Longsword in the cutscene.
  • The quote "The Gods treat us, the humans, as little more than pests. They slay us, toy with us, without remorse." is a modified version of the original quote: "As flies to wanton boys, are we to the gods. They kill us for their sport." stated in King Lear. In fact, the original quote was stated in foreign servers.
  • Strangely, after Shakespeare is sent back to his home world, there is a portrait of Bella in his room.
