Re: SF/F Characters with Disabilities
I can't believe I forgot Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones (or that no one else has mentioned him). I wasn't sure for a while if little people were considered disabled, but there have been several little person swimmers at the Paralympics, so they are.
I had simply assumed it didn't count as a disability. In that case I should probably amend the Vorkosigan note to say that he is also
'Spock is always right, even when he's wrong. It's the tone of voice, the supernatural reasonability; this is not a man like us; this is a god.'
