Lio!rt Wyrmbidder (Dragonlord) is the stranger and more rash of the two sons of the late Greicha, ruler of Wyrmberg, as featured in the The Colour of Magic.

Lio!rt was banished from Wyrmberg along with his brother Liartes as a result of a power struggle with his sister Liessa. Liessa made a deal with Hrun the barbarian that if he would defeat her brothers in combat he could rule at her side.

The brothers' choice of duel weapon was dragon. Unarmed, Hrun defeated both brothers but spared them their lives.

No help is given us as to the pronunciation of the ! in the middle of the word - is it some sort of Bushman click language (see here)? Or a way to say it - Le-Oh-rt? Open to debate.
