Lord Percy Percy was Heir to the Duchy of Northumberland, and Assistant to the Lord High Executioner. He is notable as being the inventor of Green.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Percy was extremely pompous, very snobbish and incredibly stupid, as well as being (among other things) temporarily the best man at Blackadder's wedding, assistant Lord High Executioner and a shipmate on Blackadder's ill-fated voyage to France (despite a pronounced aquaphobia stemming from a childhood incident where he was "savaged by a turbot"). At one point, while trying to master alchemy, Percy creates a green substance he imaginatively calls "Green" and attempts to turn it into something valuable. He is shown to have a terrible female record; whilst the occasional girlfriend is mentioned, he is more often seen using rather unconvincing chat-up lines on various females, and, at one point, Baldrick, who was wearing a wig and a dress whilst acting as a bridesmaid. Percy promptly fell in love with him, not recognizing Baldrick. Percy is thought to be murdered along with the rest of the permanent cast of Blackadder II by Prince Ludwig in the last episode, "Chains".
Family[edit | edit source]
He has no descendants after his death, so it is thought he was not married, he even said that he had a girl in "Potato" but it turns out Blackadder made Percy say "I even touched her once" meaning she probably did not like Percy in the way as he thought or she did not like him at all.
- He may or may not be a distant ancestor of Captain Darling, due to the similarities in appearance between the two.
