Spoiler Warning!!!: Plot and/or ending details of a Fighting Fantasy publication follow. Please DO NOT read this article if you do not want foreknowledge of this publication. Although the article below is based on canon, some of its content is considered extrapolation because it assumes a certain course of events through an adventure that has many possible routes. Finally, the use of "Hero" and other male- gender expressions pertaining to the subject in the article and/or title of the article is not intended to exclude the possibility that the hero was female.


The Hero of The Citadel of Chaos was the star pupil of the Grand Wizard of Yore, who entered the Black Tower to defeat Balthus Dire and foil his plans to invade the Vale of Willow.[1]

It is not possible for the hero to have been the protagonist in any other books in the main range unless he or she was an adventurer before commencing the study of magic. However, Hand of Fate from Fighting Fantazine Issue 10 explicitly identifies the hero as the slayer of Balthus Dire.[2]
