The legendary Dezmod (or Desmond) was one of the first three human kings on the Continent. The other two kings were Sambuk and Radovid. He was the king of Temeria and the father of King Geddes. Not much concrete information about him survives, but he does feature in a variety of jokes, proverbs, anecdotes and adages. He was also much revered by dwarves.
"As king Dezmod used to say, looking at the chamberpot after relieving himself: the mind cannot comprehend this."
