Grimaldine, the Wizard. Played by Anthony Donovan.

Grimaldine

By Keith McDonald

Grimaldine was a Celtic wizard from the Order of the Brotherhood of the Broll. He enters the dungeon to reclaim the stolen beast known as the Brollachan.


Grimaldine was a Celtic wizard who appeared in Series 7 to capture the Brollachan and return it to his own world.

He wore a green robe and described himself as 'sometimes of the grey, but always of the green'.

Grimaldine spends his time gathering information on Lord Fear and the location of the Brollachan. He reaches the Sewers of Goth several times but never manages to complete his task.

The hills and forests are my places, and I walk in this land not by choice.

Grimaldine, a wizard played by Anthony Donovan in Series 7 of Knightmare (1993).

Powerful ally

Grimaldine is prepared to help dungeoneers, usually in return for a green gem (or Arkenstone) which restores his powers.

The connection between the gems and Grimaldine's power is shown by his concealed ARKEN spell that a winning team uses to defeat Lord Fear.

We also see evidence of his power when he defeats Hordriss in a test match with a green fireball.

But like most sorcerers, Grimaldine is not infallible. He fails to catch the Brollachan while Lord Fear is incapacitated.

Worse still, the Opposition strikes immediate revenge by breaking his staff into pieces. The final dungeoneer of the season manages to reclaim it for him.
