Samuel Vimes
Odd thing, ain't it... you meet people one at a time, they seem decent, they got brains that work, and then they get together and you hear the voice of the people. And it snarls.
~ Vimes


Samuel Vimes is the cynical protagonist of Terry Pratchett's Discworld, which is a planet situated on the backs of four giant elephants who, in turn, stand on the back of a giant turtle named A'tuin the World Turtle. During the series of novels, Vimes acts as a "copper" who slowly but surely becomes a major political power of the most powerful nation in the world against his own will. Vimes is said to be a metaphor for the common man, with similar fears and ideals, and even fears that he himself is a bad person.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

CQC: As stated, Vimes maintains a vast ability to deal damage in close combat, often preferring to dodge and swing via counter rather than be the initial offensive.

Crossbow Training: Vimes is able to accurately and lethally fire a crossbow bolt into an opponent from at least 200 meters.

Sound Reasoning: Vimes often looks at situations much differently than any other human being, allowing him to figure out technology like television or even firearms before any other being (including those that would be considered scientists in his world) could.

Disarmament: Vimes will, in most situations, attempt to disarm and jail a character rather than attempt to kill him.

Boxing, Wrestling, and Street Fighting: Vimes is extremely trained in the latter, often employing the use of his fists to fight dirty against an opponent who wouldn't or wouldn't expect him to. He uses this to take down much larger enemies than himself, scaling to over three times his size.

Note: Vimes is prone to visions (rarely), alcoholism (formerly), and spurts of communication with a demonic entity known as the Summoning Dark, which empowers him with superhuman strength, durability, and other various abilities (presumably being the source of his visions).
