The Sign: Gemini, the Twins

The Hero: Elric of Melniboné, various works by Michael Moorcock

Known For: Traveling through various dimensions and fighting the Cosmic Forces of either Law or Chaos… whichever one is in the lead at the time. Intelligent, talented with magic, and noble when he chooses to be (with occasional outbursts of homicidal rage).

Favorite things: Both his favorite and least favorite thing is his sword, Stormbringer. It has saved Elric’s life many times, and helps sustain Elric’s otherwise frail health. Oh, and Stormbringer sucks out people’s souls, is intelligent, and sometimes takes it upon itself to kill someone Elric cares about. Also, the sword is planning to destroy the entire Universe some day. Otherwise, they get along great!

Quote: “Elric knew that everything that existed had its opposite. In danger he might find peace. And yet, of course, in peace there was danger. Being an imperfect creature in an imperfect world he would always know paradox. And that was why in paradox there was always a kind of truth.”

Compatible with: Libra and Aquarius

Fatal Flaw? Elric is composed entirely of fatal flaws: last survivor of a hated and feared species who can’t catch a break from people or Gods or Destiny Itself, yet is a manifestation of The Eternal Champion, who exists in one form or another in all realities (again with the contradictions!).

However, since Blue Oyster Cult do a song about him, I forgive everything.
