Flags Speaks
A violent murderer who kills for both pleasure and profit, Terence has been forced into hiding after a botched job. There's a price on his head, and he can't afford to leave anyone who sees him alive!

“A MAN committed a murder, and was pursued by the relations of the man whom he murdered. On his reaching the river Nile he saw a Lion on its bank and being fearfully afraid, climbed up a tree. He found a serpent in the upper branches of the tree, and again being greatly alarmed, he threw himself into the river, where a crocodile caught him and ate him. Thus the earth, the air, and the water alike refused shelter to a murderer.”
-Aesop, _The Manslayer_. 6th century BCE.

Useful Info

Terence the Incautious is a fairly weak unique human fighter, likely one of the first uniques you will encounter and much less deadly than Sigmund. He occasionally generates with a wand, and has a 1% chance of spawning with Throatcutter.


Tips & Tricks

  • Like most things in Crawl, try not to be overconfident. For a character arriving on D:2, a few bad damage rolls can spell death. If you decide to fight, make sure to have full HP first.
  • Thankfully, Throatcutter's instant kill effect does not affect the player.


  • In 0.29, Terence became a much greater threat to new characters, as pillar dancing no longer works.
  • In 0.28, Terence gained a small chance to spawn with Throatcutter.
