Name: Mincer



Race: human,


Further Info: A Malazan Engineer


Captain of the Malazan Engineers on the Chain of Dogs, until he was unintentionally demoted to Sergeant by Coltaine who was unaware of the man's rank due to Mincer's silent refusal to attend staff briefings. (DG, UK MMPB, p.764-6)


Mincer, a sapper

DG, Dramatis Personae


'...a squat, hairless, immeasurably ugly sapper, his eyes thin slashes, his nose a flattened spread of angles and crooks. Audaciously, he wore fragments of armour that Duiker recognized as taken from a commander of the Apocalypse, though the helm tied to his belt was something that could have adorned an antique shop in Darujhistan. Another object that hung from his belt was difficult to identify, and it was a moment before the historian realized he was looking at the battered remnant of a shield: two reinforced grips behind a mangled plate-sized flap of bronze. A large, blackened crossbow hung from one shoulder, so covered and entwined with twigs, branches and other camouflage as to make it seem the man carried a bush.'

DG, UK MMPB, p.765


'He sleeps when we march...Sleeps while walking - I've never seen the like. Snoring away, sir, one foot in front of the other, a bag full of rocks on his back...For when he breaks his sword, sir. He throws them, and there ain't a damned thing he can't hit.'
