Bhal-Sheba, the Red Dragon. Voiced by Bill Cashmore.

Bhal-Shebah

By Keith McDonald

Bhal-Shebah was a red dragon with two personalities. It was later mindwiped and renamed Firestorm of Marblehead.


Bhal-Shebah was a red dragon with dissociative identity disorder. It has two personalities, Bhal and Shebah, which don't get along.

It made a striking impression by pursuing the first dungeoneer of the final series and torching him alive.

Now, the only question for us is - cooked or raw?

Bhal-Shebah

Less use than a gerbil

After losing his previous red dragon in Series 6, Lord Fear acquires a new one for the final series.

But this dragon is complicated. We see its two personalities arguing with each other over Lord Fear's instructions.

When Lissard sets the dragon to guard the quest object, Lord Fear is mortified. He suggests that if Bhal and Shebah were pitted against one another by a smart dungeoneer, it would be 'less use than a gerbil'.

Firestorm of Marblehead

Towards the end of the series, Lord Fear brainwashed Bhal-Shebah and gave it a new name, 'Firestorm of Marblehead'.

Its new quest was to destroy Linghorm with Maldame inside.

The team in quest warns her that is coming, and it is not known if the dragon survived.
