“Oh, relax. If I wanted to kill you, you'd already be dead.”
—King Dimitar, in Book 4: Neverseen
King Dimitar is king of the ogres. He is described to look like a hairless gorilla. He has a lumpy face, and is around six feet tall. He has pointy teeth and little neck. In Everblaze King Dimitar comes to “Pay his respects” at Kenric’s funeral. In Neverseen, he works with the Neverseen to unleash a deadly-to-the-gnomes plague in order to gain the Council's attention. As revealed in Lodestar, he and his subjects are not involved with the Neverseen anymore or anybody else for that matter, except maybe for some rebel ogres.It is also mentioned that he frequently wears a "metal like diaper" thing. Like all ogres, he is able to force-shift.
King Dimitar was furious when Sophie tried to read his mind at Kenric's funeral, demanding Sophie be punished for her crime. He was insisting on sending Sophie to an ogre work camp until Lady Cadence (Sophie's mentor at Foxfire) insisted on peace and an alternative punishment. It was because of King Dimitar's demands for punishment that the Council had Dex make the ability restrictor that they forced Sophie to wear.
When Sophie, Biana, Linh, Calla, Tam, Fitz, Keefe, Dex, and Alvar infiltrated the ogre city of Ravagog, Keefe had an audience with King Dimitar. This was a distraction so that Sophie and Fitz could read King Dimitar's mind and learn about the cure for the disease affecting the gnomes.
When a group of ogres attack Havenfield, King Dimitar claims that he has nothing to do with it, and keeps insisting so at the Peace Summit. According to Keefe, the Neverseen have given Dimitar a chance to prove himself, which he accordingly failed. When Fintan shows up at the Peace Summit, he is seen shooting glares and completely disagreeing with the elf. Dimitar makes an offer to completely remove his species from the others, if he would be left alone. "All I (Dimitar) want-all I came to this summit to achieve-is a treaty that allows my people to remain separate. Leave us our lands and let us be, and I guarantee you'll never see or hear from us again. Draft a treaty that specifies that and I'll sign in a heartbeat." pg 635 (Hardback copy
When Lady Gisela has Sophie and Keefe deliver her message to King Dimitar, Dimitar challenged Keefe to a duel. The first one to draw blood three times would be declared the winner. Keefe won. The message stated that Dimitar should assign Ro, Dimitar's daughter to be Keefe's personal bodyguard, as well as asked him for the starstone hairpin.
Queen Gundula (Wife): Sophie didn't realized that King Dimitar had a queen as well, but Lady Cadence stated that he chose to be the type of ruler he was, meaning that Queen Gundula did not accompany him on foreign meetings and the like. This was revealed in Nightfall, book 6.
