On the cursed island continent of Lodoss, a party of adventurers becomes caught up in the struggle against a plot to conquer Lodoss and revive a long-dormant ancient evil deity. This thirteen-part Japanese television series is based on a series of Japanese novels, and is notable among other things for its inclusion of elements from the Dungeons & Dragons (TM) role-playing game.

In the anime he is a fairly nice person who is rather clumsy in his thievery and a bit on the lazy side. In the original manga he has far less of a heart, is much greedier and better at thievery, and ultimately works to meet his own needs rather than the needs of Parn and the others. See more »
