That's the guy. Might not have been the source of the name if you are correct (and you certainly seem like you are).

He was a character in Eye of the Beholder (1 or 2, not sure which) that the party could recruit. He had a distinctive, ugly appearance and was a mage.

I'm for the idea. It's a little piece of engagement that is more likely to reduce grinding than unbalance the game, especially for the less experienced player. The power divers won't bother, and...
