Originally an immortal spirit similar to a succubus , she saw and fell in love with a baby and longed to have one of her own an unknown force kept her from coming too close to the child she loved and taking it for herself.

If she would give up her formless immortality, Walter would give her a baby. Mia's purpose in Walter's and the Crimson King's plan is to bear Roland's child; prophecy has foretold that this child will be Roland's doom.

Mia called the child her "chap", and it was carried by both Susannah and Mia. Susannah had become pregnant with Roland's seed from the demon she copulated with in The Waste Lands , during Jake's Drawing.

The demon, a hermaphrodite able to change its sex, had copulated previously with Roland as a female in The Gunslinger while Roland protected Jake and queried it for information.

The demon had somehow preserved Roland's semen and allowed it to be somehow mixed with that of the Crimson King's seed and impregnated Susannah with it while male.

Mia possessed Susannah in order to take over the birthing of her "chap". Son of two fathers and two mothers, Mordred was born of Susannah's egg fertilized by the seed of both Roland of Gilead and the Crimson King, and carried to term by Mia.

Mordred is half-human, half-spider, able to transform between the two, and if his fate is fulfilled, he will both kill Roland and topple the Dark Tower itself.

He is both very powerful and extremely arrogant. Growing at a rapid speed, Mordred passes from childhood through adolescence in a matter of months.

His abilities include the ability to change between human form and spider form at will and absorbing a victim's knowledge and experience by devouring them.

Mordred becomes deathly ill after eating poisoned horse meat, and when he makes a final attempt to kill Roland, he is attacked by Oy.

Oy is able to distract Mordred long enough to allow Roland to wake up and kill his son at the threshold of the Dark Tower.

Richard Patrick Sayre is a high-ranking can-toi and a member of the Sombra Corporation. Like the other members of his race, he dresses in garishly colored clothing and has a raw spot on his forehead that continually wells up with blood without scabbing or spilling down his face.

As revealed in Wolves of the Calla , Sayre lured Father Callahan to Sombra's offices by offering a million dollars to the charity he was working for.

His plan failed when Callahan committed suicide by jumping out the window. He takes them through the door into Fedic, where Mia is placed on a bed to deliver Mordred Deschain.

After his birth, Susannah grabs a gun and shoots Sayre in the head. Finli O'Tego is a weasel-headed Taheen that appeared in the fifth and seventh Dark Tower books; he was referred to briefly in Wolves of the Calla , before reemerging as a fully fleshed out character in The Dark Tower.

Finli is an assistant and close friend to Pimli Prentiss and helped in the running of Devar-Toi. Like most Taheen, he has psychic abilities; he also enjoys eating pus, offered by Prentiss as he breaks the pimples that erupt on his face.

He is credited with orchestrating the re-capture of Ted Brautigan , an event described in Hearts in Atlantis. During the siege of Algul Siento by Roland's ka-tet, Finli was mortally injured and ultimately put out of his misery by Eddie Dean.

He manages a club called "The Leaning Tower" and has a fascination with building houses of cards on his desk.

Among his actions in the series are: kidnapping Eddie Dean's older brother, Henry who in turn overdoses on heroin before he can be saved , running over Jake with his car and killing him for the first time, and hiring out his musclemen to the Sombra Corporation.

In that novel, he followed Eddie and Roland from Earth to Mid-World via magic door and was promptly eaten alive by lobstrosities after suffering major wounds to his face and arm during gunplay with Roland.

He reappears, first in Wolves of the Calla and later in Song of Susannah as a representative of the Sombra Corporation, in a parallel-earth, This version of Andolini meets a less horrible fate: he is imprisoned in a Maine county jail.

Dandelo is a psychic vampire who feeds on emotions. He makes an appearance in the final book in the series, The Dark Tower. Afterward, he tells them that before entering All-World, he was a stand-up comedian.

Roland asks to hear some of his act, during which Dandelo comes close to making Roland laugh to death. Susannah avoids entrapment because she is in the bathroom at the time, tending to a troublesome sore on her face.

There she discovers a note apparently left by Stephen King himself the note even acknowledges itself as a deus ex machina that helps her puzzle out Joe's true identity.

Before he can sap all of Roland's life force, Dandelo is killed by Susannah with two shots to the head. It is later revealed that he had kept Patrick Danville captive as a 'food source' to drain of emotions; at one point Dandelo ripped out Danville's tongue, preventing him from speaking.

Dandelo had a stable behind his house, in which he kept a blind horse named Lippy. Lippy whinnied when she sensed Roland, Susannah and Oy approach.

She was very old, ragged, and had holes in her coat. When Dandelo is slain by the gunslingers, Lippy flees her stable, but returns to seek shelter from a winter storm—only to be shot down by Roland.

After the gunslingers have moved on, Mordred Deschain , starving after weathering the storm out in the wilderness, fed on Lippy's corpse, which poisoned him and eventually contributed to his downfall.

He first appears in The Waste Lands. He is the great-grandson of David Quick. His left eye was punctured by Oy during a fight, and Jake shot him in the leg, and then in the head with a.

He was left for dead, but survived, the bullet having only grazed his skull and torn off a flap of skin. He seems to be a successor to the Trashcan Man from The Stand , as both were followers of Flagg who repeated the mantra "My life for you" in regard to their loyalty to him.

Andy was one of the main antagonists in Wolves of the Calla. Andy was created by Lamerk Industries the same company that made the Twelve Guardians and had lived in the Calla for thousands of years.

He was obsessed with telling people their horoscopes, like Blaine the Mono was obsessed with riddles. Andy played music from a speaker in his chest and was loved by all the children in the Calla.

He used this closeness with children to gather information and the whereabouts of the children of the Calla to Finli O'Tego.

The information was used so that the Wolves, who were really robots disguised as monsters, could locate the children and take them into the Thunderclap.

Andy's sinister nature was uncovered by Jake Chambers , who hid in an ancient control center and overheard Andy talking to Ben Slightman Sr.

Andy claimed he didn't know much about the Wolves under Directive Nineteen , but he always told the townsfolk when they were coming a month in advance.

Andy was finally put to rest by Eddie, who blinded him by shooting his eyes out and then ordering him to shut down under Directive Nineteen.

Andy was buried underneath a pile of manure in an outhouse. Pimli Prentiss is the warden of Algul Siento. He is described as being tall, overweight, and balding.

He got the job by replying to a help wanted advertisement in a daily newspaper. Pimli was not a resident of the plane that Algul Siento existed on, but a parallel Earth very similar to our own, where he worked as a prison guard.

Pimli is shown to be cautious and restrained in his approach to his service to the Crimson King. He relies on his humanity and spirituality to guide him in his endeavors.

He is portrayed as being a newly devout Catholic. This devotion to Catholicism is apparently triggered by his experiences in End-World.

Pimli was killed by Roland Deschain's ka-tet during the raid on Algul Siento. Before dying, he was able to inflict a mortal gunshot wound on Eddie Dean , thus breaking Roland's ka-tet.

The being Gan is first mentioned by name in Song of Susannah , the sixth installment in the series. He is described as speaking "through the voices of the can-calah, who men call angels ," and as "denying the Crimson King and denying Discordia itself.

Gan rose from the Prim implied as being the darkness behind everything and created the universes and infinite alternate universes that the Dark Tower a building that serves as a microcosm of all of the multiple realities of the Dark Tower series holds in place.

A barmaid in Tull seen in The Gunslinger. She befriended Roland and told him about the story of Nort. Roland knew she would eventually ask Nort about the number Nineteen and knew this was a trap set up by The Man in Black.

After she had asked Nort about the number Nineteen, Roland shot her in the head as she wished, as she could not bear what she was told.

Murdered by Roy Depape. Farson's nephew is a young, slim musician. He has short, straight, black hair and dark eyes. He is a high-ranking soldier or henchmen of Farson's Revolutionary Army, and one who met Gabrielle Deschain in their plans for the murder of Steven Deschain.

He is always seen near his uncle, not directly in battle. Appeared in The Gunslinger. Nort dies twice: once prior to Roland's stay in Tull, and once later at Roland's hand.

Alice retells the story of Nort's first death—and subsequent resurrection—to Roland. Nort dies in Sheb's bar. He is described as a drunk and a user of devil-grass—one who has graduated from smoking it to chewing it, to Roland's shock and disgust.

On the afternoon that he dies, The Man in Black appears and revives him in front of the regulars in the bar.

He then hands Alice a note which states that if she speaks the code word "nineteen" to Nort, he will tell her of the secrets beyond Death.

The note is intended as a trap; Alice eventually falls prey to it and says the word, triggering a town-wide frenzy against Roland in which he kills the entire population.

Nort is last seen hanging above Sheb's bar, spread-eagled and crucified with wooden pegs, with a large and purple cloven hoof on his forehead.

It is unclear who committed this crime, but it is likely the work of either Sylvia Pittston—who had referenced the cloven hoof in her sermon—or one of her followers, over whom she had a high degree of control.

Wife of Hart Thorin first seen in Wizard and Glass. Despite being pushed aside by her husband in favour of Susan Delgado, she was kind to Susan and tried to help her escape Mejis.

Out of the original meeting between the townspeople and Roland, Cuthbert and Alain, she was the only one who Roland liked. Helped Susan escape from Mejis; however, was killed by Clay Reynolds before Susan was returned by Rhea for the reaping.

Sheb was a piano player first seen in The Gunslinger. He was in Mejis at some point of his life before ending up in Tull. He originally did not recognise Roland until Roland prompts him by mentioning Susan Delgado.

He is killed by Roland. He is seen again in Wizard and Glass in a minor role during Roland's tale from Mejis. A preacher seen in The Gunslinger and preaches to the town of Tull about "The Interloper" and how the town should cast him down.

She implies this to be Roland. She is killed by Roland. Coral Thorin briefly mentions Sylvia Pittston in Wizard and Glass about how she passed through the town a year prior to events of the story.

Tim Ross lives with his mother Nell in a forgotten village that fears the annual collection of property taxes by a man named The Covenant Man. Tim recently lost his father, who was said to have been killed by a dragon while in the woods chopping trees.

After the death of his father, Nell, no longer able to pay the taxes to keep their home, marries his father's best friend and business partner Bern Kells, who moves in with them.

Kells is a mean man, prone to heavy drinking, who begins to abuse both Tim and Nell. One day The Covenant Man comes to collect the taxes, and he secretly tells Tim to meet him later in the woods.

During this meeting, The Covenant Man reveals to Tim that it was actually Kells who killed his father, not a dragon, and with help of a scrying bowl shows Kells beating his mother, causing her to go blind.

Later, The Covenant Man sends Tim a vision telling him that if Tim again visits The Covenant Man in the woods, he will give Tim magic that will allow his mother to see again.

Tim, armed with a gun given to him by his school teacher, journeys into the dangerous woods, and is led into a swamp by the mischievous fairy, Armaneeta.

Here, Tim almost becomes victim to a dragon and other mysterious swamp creatures, but he is saved by his gun as well as a group of friendly swamp people, who mistake him for a gunslinger.

The swamp people guide him to the far side of the swamp, and equip him with a small mechanical talking device from the 'Old People' that helps guide him on his journey.

Eventually, Tim arrives at a Dogan where he finds a caged 'tyger' and befriends the tyger. The next morning, Tim discovers that the tyger is actually Maerlyn, a white magician, who had been trapped in the cage for years due to black magic.

Maerlyn gives Tim a potion to cure his mother's blindness and sends him back to his mother on the flying magic blanket. Returning home, Tim brings sight back to his mother.

Tim is attacked by Kells, who had secretly entered the home as Tim tended to his mother, but the boy is saved by his mother, who kills Kells with her late husband's ax.

Later in life, Tim becomes a gunslinger in his own right, known first as Lefty Ross and then as Tim Stoutheart.

Tim Ross arrives at a Dogan where he finds Tyger, which wears the key to the Dogan around its neck. A starkblast approaches, and Tim, realizing this is likely a trap set for him by The Covenant Man also known as Randall Flagg and the Man in Black befriends the tyger.

Tim and the tyger ride out the storm under a magical protective blanket. It is a huge corporation which manufactures technologically advanced items such as robots , computers , and weapons.

Many of the products are prominent in the Dark Tower series, where the few remaining North Central Positronics products still functioning have gone insane , preying upon life and the remnants of civilization.

This is related to the phenomenon affecting much of reality; everything is falling apart. As stated in the books, the world has "moved on".

By the time it is encountered by Roland and his ka-tet , North Central Positronics is part of the Sombra Group , owned by the Crimson King , the personification of evil in the world of the Dark Tower.

Among NCP's creations in the books are dipolar computers, a number of androids and cyborgs namely the Guardians of the beams, including Shardik the Bear and Maturin the Turtle , Stuttering Bill one of the few robots the Ka-Tet encounter that is not hostile and actually aids them in their quest , Andy the Messenger Robot Many Other Functions , and Blaine the Mono , a highly intelligent and sadistic monorail system that enjoys riddles.

In "The Waste Lands," Jake and Gasher, and later Roland, enter the underworld of the city of Lud via an iron manhole which is protected by a cover stamped with the label "LaMerk Foundry.

Say please. May the arms of Gan raise him from the darkness of this earth. Surround him, Gan , with light.

Fill him, Chloe, with strength. If he is thirsty, give him water in the clearing. If he is hungry, give him food in the clearing.

Roland is the last surviving gunslinger and is possessed or, as he describes it himself, "addicted" by a quest to reach The Dark Tower, the axis upon which infinite numbers of parallel worlds rotate.

Eddie Dean , an ex- heroin addict and member of Roland's ka-tet, calls Roland a "Tower junkie. In the first novel, The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger , Roland's original desire is simply to climb to the Dark Tower's top to question whatever god dwells there, but ka has greater plans for him.

The ka-tet he acquires during the series bears many resemblances to his childhood ka-tet, who were all killed trying to help Roland on his quest.

How he treats his new ka-tet when faced with decisions between their lives and his quest is a key component of the novels. Ultimately, his ka-tet represents a chance for redemption and a means by which he can ultimately change his own ka.

At the end of the seventh novel, it is revealed that he is trapped in a repetitive reincarnation , his "damnation" for his crimes and killings similar to Stephen King's short story " That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is in French ", in which he expresses that his idea of hell is repetition.

However, it is also suggested that this eternal repetition is not quite eternal; after his rebirth at the end of the novel, it is revealed that in this particular reiteration of his journey, he possesses the Horn of Eld which in his previous pilgrimages he had lost in the final stand at Jericho Hill, the one major element which was discrepant from his approach to the tower and Childe Roland's approach in Robert Browning 's Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came "Dauntless the slug-horn to my lips I set Roland's chief enemy is Randall Flagg , a villain who appears in many of King's works.

Flagg's character appears in many different incarnations throughout the series. He is a minion of the Crimson King himself, though he is ultimately hoping to overthrow him.

He is often at the heart of most conflicts with Roland throughout the Gunslinger's lifetime. His relationships with his ka-tet change greatly over the course of the story.

When he first 'draws' Eddie from the reader's world, Roland dislikes him for being a drug addict and constantly complaining about his plight.

After Eddie beats his addiction , however, he starts to care for him more and more and eventually, Roland regards him as something between a son and a brother.

His relationship with Susannah follows the same pattern: though he is initially wary of her second personality, Detta, after her personalities 'merge' into Susannah he gets to know her better and grows to care deeply for her.

His relationship with Jake is perhaps the deepest, initially seeing the boy as a trustworthy and strong companion, but eventually regarding him as his true son.

Roland, already scarred by the deaths of all his childhood friends — who all died helping him to get closer to the tower — he is shown to be emotionally devastated by Eddie's and especially Jake's death, weeping openly something Eddie mentioned before did not happen often, if at all.

Roland cries out all their names — both his first and second Ka-Tet's — when he reaches the door of the Dark Tower, along with other characters whom he cared for in some way or another: Susan Delgado, Roland's first and only true love, who was killed while he was in Mejis; Father Callahan, who was also a member of Roland's second Ka-Tet, albeit for a much shorter time; Hax the cook, whom Roland betrayed to the gunslingers because he was a traitor, something that deeply affected Roland; his teachers Cort and Vannay; his parents' names; the name of David the Hawk, whom Roland used in the trial for his revolvers; and the name of Aunt Talitha of River Crossing, whose cross he lays at the base of the tower.

He also cries the names of Ted Brautigan and Dinky Earnshaw, two 'Breakers' who helped him and his friends greatly; the name of Sheemie Ruiz, one of Roland's longest-surviving friends; and that of Oy, the billy-bumbler, a ka-tet member who died saving Roland's life from Mordred Deschain.

Physically, Roland is described by most of his ka'tet as "old long, tall, and ugly" with "blue, bombadier's eyes. Emotionally, Roland at times appears detached or unsympathetic, often reacting with seeming indifference or anger at signs of cowardice or self-pity, yet he possesses a strong sense of heroism, often attempting to help those in need.

He is shown to be emotionally scarred from the deaths of all his friends and family, often thinking about their words and actions, and he is said on more than one occasion by himself to lack imagination.

He describes this trait as being "not very good in thinking around corners". He is nevertheless highly intelligent and perceptive, exemplified by his interest in riddles; though he enjoys hearing them, he usually overcomplicates the solution.

Cuthbert, Roland's childhood best friend, once said the gears in Roland's head turn slow, but grind extremely well.

Roland is impatient, especially when he is under stress, and often makes a rotating gesture with his hand, which means 'go on, hurry, move on' in conversations.

Similarly, he prefers not to over-plan his actions, trusting in his instinct and skill at improvising according to the situation. He is also shown not to have a great sense of humor; despite his love for riddles, he rarely jokes and is visibly irritated at times when Eddie and in the past, Cuthbert joke around.

While she acknowledges that Roland lacks the president's imagination, both men have similar levels of charisma, cunning, and romance. King often notes Roland's strong sense of romance in his narrations, but describes this aspect of the gunslinger's character as being usually hidden by his more dominant sense of pragmatism.

Wife of Hart Thorin first seen in Wizard and Glass. His deep loyalty to his friend saves Jake's life Windmühle Kaufen times, and he remains part of Roland's ka-tet even after the boy dies, as a final request from Jake. He grew up and trained with Roland under Cort and Vannay in Gilead. Eddie and Susannah consider themselves husband and wife, although they never formally marry. Before consummating her relationship with Thorin, however, she falls in love with Roland and becomes involved in the young gunslinger's plans to prevent John Farson from using an oilfield near Hambry to supply his troops with crude oil. Extra Terrestrial something big comes out of the bush at us, Roland, you can always throw your knife Roland Deschain it. He has little gold framed glasses, a bad case of rheumatism, and a stooped posture; upon seeing him, Roland Heute.De that if he could stand straight, the two would be the same height roughly 6'3". Cuthbert, Roland's childhood best friend, once said the gears in Roland's head turn slow, but grind extremely well.

Birth is nothing but death begun, so hear my prayer. Death is speechless, so hear my speech. This is Jake, who served his ka and his tet.

Say true. Say please. May the arms of Gan raise him from the darkness of this earth. Surround him, Gan , with light.

May his life on this earth and the pain of his passing become as a dream to his waking soul, and let his eyes fall upon every lovely sight; let him find the friends that were lost to him, and let every one whose name he calls call his in return.

This is Jake, who lived well, loved his own, and died as ka would have it. Each man owes a death. This is Jake. Give him peace. Everything he was and everything he had come for, it seemed, was secondary to her.

So wrong. Now that the numb-fuck apprentices have the guns and the master's unarmed, can we please go? He is the son of Steven and Gabrielle Deschain and is descended from a long line of " gunslingers ", peacekeepers and diplomats of Roland's society.

Roland becomes a gunslinger at the unheard-of age of 14 after being manipulated into taking the "trial of manhood" by Marten Broadcloak, his father's adviser and alias of Randall Flagg.

Marten has an affair with Roland's mother and makes sure Roland finds out about it, prompting Roland to request his trial in order to gain his guns and exact revenge on Marten.

In the trial, Roland must defeat his teacher, Cort, using a weapon of his choosing. He chooses a hawk named David and defeats Cort.

Roland sacrifices David to win the fight, setting the tone for Roland's future choices in life. Despite Roland's victory, Cort and Roland's father convince Roland to bide his time before seeking retribution.

Not long after, Roland's father sends him on a mission to the town of Hambry in the Outer Barony of Mejis with his friends Alain Johns and Cuthbert Allgood , who will form the basis of his first ka-tet.

While there, he meets Susan Delgado , whom he falls in love with. He also comes into the possession of a pink crystal ball, one of 13 magical artifacts referred to as "Maerlyn's Rainbow.

Roland is a 30th-generation descendant of his world's version of King Arthur , referred to in the series as Arthur Eld. In Wizard and Glass , during a flashback to Roland's time in the Barony of Mejis, a letter from his father identifies Steven Deschain as a 29th-generation descendant of Arthur Eld from a side lineage that is to say, from one of Arthur's many "gillies," or concubines.

Even his guns were originally made of the melted-down metal from the legendary Excalibur sword. It is hinted that one must possess this sword, or another sign of the Eld the line of Arthur Eld in order to open the door at the foot of the Tower.

Roland is alone at the beginning of the series, following the way of ka , a variant of destiny. The term ka-tet is used for a group of people who are deeply bonded to one another through ka.

The eight-book series is about Roland's acquisition of a new ka-tet and the completion of his quest. Roland is the last surviving gunslinger and is possessed or, as he describes it himself, "addicted" by a quest to reach The Dark Tower, the axis upon which infinite numbers of parallel worlds rotate.

Roland cries out all their names — both his first and second Ka-Tet's — when he reaches the door of the Dark Tower, along with other characters whom he cared for in some way or another: Susan Delgado, Roland's first and only true love, who was killed while he was in Mejis; Father Callahan, who was also a member of Roland's second Ka-Tet, albeit for a much shorter time; Hax the cook, whom Roland betrayed to the gunslingers because he was a traitor, something that deeply affected Roland; his teachers Cort and Vannay; his parents' names; the name of David the Hawk, whom Roland used in the trial for his revolvers; and the name of Aunt Talitha of River Crossing, whose cross he lays at the base of the tower.

He also cries the names of Ted Brautigan and Dinky Earnshaw, two 'Breakers' who helped him and his friends greatly; the name of Sheemie Ruiz, one of Roland's longest-surviving friends; and that of Oy, the billy-bumbler, a ka-tet member who died saving Roland's life from Mordred Deschain.

Physically, Roland is described by most of his ka'tet as "old long, tall, and ugly" with "blue, bombadier's eyes. Emotionally, Roland at times appears detached or unsympathetic, often reacting with seeming indifference or anger at signs of cowardice or self-pity, yet he possesses a strong sense of heroism, often attempting to help those in need.

He is shown to be emotionally scarred from the deaths of all his friends and family, often thinking about their words and actions, and he is said on more than one occasion by himself to lack imagination.

He describes this trait as being "not very good in thinking around corners". He is nevertheless highly intelligent and perceptive, exemplified by his interest in riddles; though he enjoys hearing them, he usually overcomplicates the solution.

Cuthbert, Roland's childhood best friend, once said the gears in Roland's head turn slow, but grind extremely well.

Roland is impatient, especially when he is under stress, and often makes a rotating gesture with his hand, which means 'go on, hurry, move on' in conversations.

Similarly, he prefers not to over-plan his actions, trusting in his instinct and skill at improvising according to the situation.

He is also shown not to have a great sense of humor; despite his love for riddles, he rarely jokes and is visibly irritated at times when Eddie and in the past, Cuthbert joke around.

While she acknowledges that Roland lacks the president's imagination, both men have similar levels of charisma, cunning, and romance.
