– Dirk Steadfast, MediEvil
Not much is known about Dirk's early life. At some point he forged his Magic Sword and used it to chase away the Jabberwocky from Gallowmere. He was a contemporary of Karl Sturnguard and the two were friends despite their differences. Dirk is indirectly responsible for Karl's death, as Karl started choking on a sausage after Dirk started explaining his views on the Gold Shield.
He was a fearsome opponent in battle, mostly because of his trusty Magic Sword and kept a firm belief that 'only women defend themselves, real men are always on the attack'.
