"I may serve Chaor, but in time Chaor will serve me!" - card text
Lord Van Bloot is an UnderWorld creature. Once second-in-command of the UnderWorld army.
Character Origins of Van Bloot
Chaor's second-in-command, an UnderWorlder with plans to overthrow Chaor. He makes his home in the castle called Gothos Tower. Van Bloot eventually ends up shoveling coal for the M'arrillians after he fled from the UnderWorld. Later, he's informed about the secrets of Dranakis Threshold by Klay. With the knowledge of the threshold in hand, he planned to use Dranikus Threshold to go back in time and conquer Perim. Najarin and creatures from the other tribes eventually manage to prevent that from happening. But what happened to Lord Van Bloot once Dranikus Threshold was destroyed is unknown.
Lord Van Bloot resembles a male harpy mixed with a skeleton. He features blue-green skin that closely resembles bones, as well as one black eye and a mechanical, red eye. His huge, teal, feathery wings allow him to reach high speeds while in flight. He is seen wearing a blue fur loincloth and metal arm-guards. Most of his head remains bald to further reinforce his skeletal-like appearance, but he does possess a long, slim, brown ponytail.
He is one of a few UnderWolders that can fly.
He is voice acted by mainly David Mansley, but is also voiced by Mark Hamil in Dual Duel.
Personality and Behaviour
Lord Van Bloot is a powerful Underworld Creature who thinks highly of himself. This high self image leaves him power hungry and greedy as he tries to take the Underworld from Chaor. Lord Van Bloot is cunning and intelligent, therefore his plans are usually nearly foolproof. The name Lord Van Bloot may be from the German words "Lord Von Blüt" (pronounced the same way) which stands for Lord of Blood, this fits his character as he appears unafraid of bloodshed. Lord Van Bloot is a enemy of Chaor, due to all the conflict which always leads to Lord Van Bloot's defeat. Trying to be on the winning team in M'arrillian Invasion of the Chaotic series, he is controlled by the mind controlling M'arillians.
