    I am very interested in the relation of The Stand's Randall Flagg with Eye of the Dragon's Flagg and The Dark Tower's 'dark man'. Are they the same person? They all mention Legion. Please enlighten me!

    In addition, he is also called the walking dude in every novel.

    Hi Rael, don't think I've welcomed you. Someone will be along to discuss your question. We have smart people on here that know this stuff inside and out.

    Thank you, Dana. Another thing I recall now, each dark man has very short recollection of the past, having lived for so long. Perhaps there is also a link to Leland Gaunt?

    I believe they are, in answer to your original question. And I've welcomed you in your other thread so am not being rude :)

    I think they are variations of the same...and yes, Flagg in The Stand certainly
    has a short memory at times, as he is bewildered again when he is zapped into the jungle and the natives bow down to the bewildered man whose memory beings to kick in at that moment.

    Nah, I've read almost all the books. In Eye of hE Dragon as well, Flagg expresses frustration at not being able to think back far.

    Yes, Flagg has many different personas. The characters you mentioned are all the same Flagg.

    According to Wikipedia the answer to your first question is yes...

    Randall Flagg


    The Man in Black, and a character with numerous aliases, including: the Ageless Stranger, the Walking Dude, Walter O'Dim, Marten Broadcloak, Richard Faninn, Rudin Filaro, Legion, Covenant Man, and his given name, Walter Padick, son of Sam; he appears in many books of Stephen King, most notably in The Eyes of the Dragon and in The Stand, always as a nearly-demonic sorcerer. He is the Crimson King's chief agent.

    I agree with Walt O'Di...I mean Oobleck about your other question.
