He is the main character in so many books these days, that he is immortal. So sad. I wouldn't mind getting rid of him myself... unfortunately, being the main character, he caries the ability to revive himself at will, it appears. I pretty much agree with Koz-Ivan, as the drow are an overused race these days, Drizzt in peticular. I would for once like to see the drow get soundly flushed away for a time. As for the books, don't worry, they seem to be pushing Jarlaxle now.
