Conan Wiki

Alvazar is a wisecracking thief who helps, annoys, and travels with Conan the adventurer at times.

Biographical sketch[]

Alvazar is from Zamora, and is one of the finest examples of the cunning and duplicitousness that characterizes that people. He is cunning, ruthless, and highly skilled at thievery and combat. He makes his living much as Conan, Red Sonja, and the other adventurers of the Hyborian Age.

Physical appearance[]

Alvazar is a bit shorter than the average Hyborian, and quite thin. He is deceptively muscled for his small size, however. He has black hair which is usually worn in a topknot, and usually has some stubble or a soul-patch beard.

Traits and skills[]

Alvazar's dominant trait is his attitude. He is constantly mouthing off, complaining, joking, over-analyzing, bragging, and generally making a nuisance of himself. Even during battle he does not stop, shouting his quips and kvetching. Depending on his mood, Conan is amused or annoyed by this.

Alvazar is a thief and a warrior. He prefers short swords and knives to take advantage of his dexterity and agility. His otherwise uncanny stealth is somewhat marred by his big mouth.
