The doomed albino sorceror-king Elric is one of my all-time favorite fantasy characters. Michael Moorcock, the author creator, creates a panorama of decadent and beautiful scenarios and places for Elric to explore. At his side for many of these tales is a small warrior squire named "Moonglum," who selflessly stays by Elric when all others desert him. Naturally, Moonglum has red hair (every fantasy has at least one red-headed character) and he is a good fighter. I gave him a Mongol face and attire, I don't remember whether Moorcock specified an ethnic background for him. Here is Elric with "Stormbringer," the demonic magical soul stealing sword, and Moonglum by his side.
