Fifty Years of Terry Pratchett

Cohen the Barbarian

Cohen the Barbarian. Ghenghiz Cohen. The greatest hero the Disc has ever produced, with an uncanny ability to get close to money. His father drove him out of the tribe when he was eleven and he has been living on his wits and other people’s nerves ever since. When first encountered, he was a skinny, little eighty-seven-yearold; totally bald, with a beard almost down to his knees and a pair of matchstick legs on which varicose veins have traced the street map of quite a large city.

Towards the end of his life (and even closer to the end of the lives of anyone who stood in his way), Cohen put together his Silver Horde of equally elderly
men.
