Dhaarimus Noce. Dar, as he's called, is the resident demon. Sassy enough to slap your mama, sexy enough for her to like it... This sarcastic prick has a morbid sense of humor. Still, his skills behind the bar are un-matched... Mostly because of his ability to magically "encourage" his costumers to tip well and behave themselves.
