Base of Operations: Realm of Chthon, mobile on Earth

First Appearance: Ghost Rider III#25 (September, 1992)

Powers: The Dwarf is able to magically transport anywhere at will. He typically appears anywhere a page of the Darkhold is to be found. He influences people in an effort to get them to use a page out of the Darkhold, thus damning their souls.

The Dwarf does not usually engage in any direct assaults, preferring to manipulate others. He may or may not be able to access the mystic energy of Chthon. He is influenced by ambient magic, as was the case when Victoria Montesi herself accessed a page of the Darkhold.

The Dwarf does not suffer from any human limitations, such as the need for air, water, food, warmth, etc. It is unlikely that he can be injured by any conventional means.

Height: 3' 6" Weight: 130 lbs.

History: The origins of the Dwarf are unrevealed. He is almost certainly either a creation of or a demon in the employ of Chthon. In recent years, he has been dispatched to Earth to convince others to utilize the pages of the Darkhold. Chthon gains power when the pages are accessed, and so the Dwarf attempts to convince others that they will benefit from using the page.

The Dwarf's efforts were opposed by the Darkhold Redeemers, who tried to prevent the use of any of the pages. However, despite this, the Dwarf succeeded in convincing one of their own, Victoria Montesi, to use one of the pages. The Dwarf also convinced another Midnight Son, Blade, to use one of the pages.

Comments: Created by Howard Mackie, Chris Cooper, and Richard Case.
