Discworld

By way of La Femme, I am delighted to discover a quiz which purports to inform you as to which Discworld character you most resemble.

Various Gentle Readers have made statements to this effect regarding your Humble Scribe, so I felt it my duty to confirm or deny certain suspicions:

Which Discworld Character are you like (with pics)
created with QuizFarm.com
You scored as Commander Samuel Vimes

You are Samuel Vimes! Captain of Ankh-Morpork’s city Watch! You are a knight, married to the very wealthy, noble lady Sybil Ramkin. You often walk the streets at night, and are able to tell where you are by the feel of the cobbles under your boots. You always do what is right – that is, what needs to be done – to keep the city safe, even when it seems bad.

  3. Librarian, no surprise there. Pity there wasn’t Lu Tze. Or better yet, Qu 🙂

  4. LawMom – it means you could intimidate a rattlesnake. But we already knew that.

  5. For those who aren’t Discsavvy:

    Cohen the Barbarian is the world’s oldest barbarian warlord. He’s gotten very VERY good at it by now…
    He’s also the possessor of the Disc’s most expensive set of dentures.

    Lord Havelock Vetinari is the Patrician (think dictator, but without the militarism) of the city of Ankh-Morpork. Intelligent and ruthless and with vast reserves of forethought, his only human weaknesses are a fondness for dogs and an abiding hatred for street mime.
    “This is a one-man, one-vote system. The Patrician is The Man, and he has The Vote.”

    The Librarian (of the Unseen University, Ankh-Morpork’s college of magic) was once human, but was turned into an orang-outan (note: NOT a monkey) by a wayward burst of magic. At one time there was talk of turning him back, but he is very happy being the only librarian on the Disc that can unscrew a man’s head from his neck with his bare hands. Has a one-word vocabulary, but he gets a lot out of it.

    Rincewind the Wizzard is an idiot savant in staying alive. Even Death Himself has given up trying, and instead of pursuing Rincewind just keeps tabs on him for entertainment’s sake. Rincewind is a chosen tool of Lady Luck, with all that that implies, much against his own will. Very fond of potatoes in all their wonderful forms.

    I rated Greebo…

  6. LD, I just plain never imagined you portly enough to be Fred Colon. Though now I can’t get the through of Vimes in a Tasmanian Devil T-shirt out of my mind, which explains why I’m giggling so much.

  7. You scored as a Carrot Ironfounderson

    You are Captain Carrot Ironfounderson of the City Watch in the greatest city on the Disc – Ankh-Morprok! A truly good natured, honest guy, who knows everyone, and is liked by all. Technically a dwarf, but only by adoption. You’d rather not be reminded that you are the true heir to the throne, but that does explain why people naturally follow your orders¦

    Hmmmm….

  8. I’m, Carrot Ironfounderson. I hope that’s a good thing since I haven’t read the Discworld books. Yet.

  9. Captain Carrot isn’t “one of the good guys”; he DEFINES ‘good guy’. Incredibly personable, incorruptably honest, and a bit too literal-minded for anyone’s good. My favorite description of him is that people consider him to be simple… but then again, a sword is simple too. He’s also known for having a punch that even trolls respect.

  10. You scored as a Death
    You are death! Reaper of souls! Riding your horse, Binky, with a scythe at hand. Always working, always busy… You sometimes try to socialize with the living, and ALWAYS SPEAK IN CAPITAL LETTERS.

    Knowing NOTHING about Discworld, I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. As for the Dwarf thing….my nickname in the Army (bestowed by some of the computer tech guys, one of whom was SO tall that I was about eye-level with his navel) WAS “the Dwarf Queen….

  12. You scored as a Lord Havelock Vetinari.

    You are Lord Vetinari! Supreme ruler of Ankh-Morpork! Cool, calculated, and always in control. You graduated from the assassins guild, but failed a course on stealth and camouflage, because the professor never saw you there (even though you attended every class). You always seem to know what everyone is thinking, and after a conversation with you, people feel that they have just escaped certain death.

  13. I found it interesting that I scored as Lord Havelock Vetinari but only after I answered a tie-breaker question to the effect that I like control better than bannanas.

    Lord Havelock Vetinari 81%
    The Librarian 81%

    Until this point I never realized how much those two do have in common.

    And as to the accuracy of the test, well, I’ve got abnormally long arms, lots of reddish-brown hair, and tend to get screamed at a lot by people who didn’t know I was there. Once upon a time, way back when, I nearly won a game of hide-n-seek by simply standing midway between two trees. Got caught when I burst out laughing when the ‘seeker’ when to look behind me. Would have got away if I’d recovered from my laughing fit faster than he recovered from the shock.

  14. Wow. This is wild. I took it twice to be sure.

  15. Highest I got was the not-so-flattering Rincewind at 63%, runner ups being the librarian at 56% and Gytha (Nanny) Ogg at 53%…

    Any way you look at it though, I’m some sort of magic user apparently.

  18. The Librarian, then Granny. So if you call me a monkey, I’ll turn you into a toad. Oldeforce

  19. A tie between Commander Samuel Vines and the Librarian.
    Where does that put me in these books. Guess I shall to read yet another series and find out!

  22. Hmmm Got Vetinari as well
    Funny I thought I was more the Detritus type but that option wasn’t there

  23. Sam, although Greebo was a close second. I’d been happy with Death. 😉
