Mr Desmond Tiny, sometimes called Mr Des Tiny or Mr Destiny, is a key character in the Saga of Darren Shan. He loves chaos and commonly plants ideas into peoples head to make them cause world wide chaos and war and destruction.

Powers and Abilities Edit
Desmond Tiny has the power to construct pathways in time, and can travel forward and backward in time. He was the creator of the Little People and the Dragons. He is supposed to have modified the Vampires and Vampaneze to make them creatures of the night and is even said to have created them using the blood of wolves.
He is supposed to have helped Alan Morris, one of Darren's friends in school, to clone a dormant Dinosaur egg and create the dragons. The dragons are kept under control by the worlds authorities but finally they take over the earth starting the Age of Dragons, from which Mr tiny collects the souls from the Lake of Souls to make his Little People.
Vampires and Vampaneze Edit
The vampires came into being by themselves. They were originally able to have children and were not affected by Sunlight. Mr Tiny went back in time and changed that, making them prisoners of the night. 600 years before the start of Cirque Du Freak, the 'Vampaneze' broke away from the Vampire clan and formed a new group because they believed you should kill when you feed, while the Vampires did not.
Little People Edit
The little people are the reincarnated souls of the dead which Mr Tiny gets to work for him. He fishes the souls out of the Lake of Souls.
Creatures of Chaos Edit
Mr Tiny is one of the Creatures of Chaos and has to obey the laws of the universe otherwise he will set his elder family and his brothers and sisters, the Hounds of Chaos, free on the world and they will cause misery throughout the world.
Shan and Leonard Edit
Darren Shan and Steve 'Leopard' Leonard, friends since childhood, enemies since their teenage years, are both sons of Mr Tiny. Mr Tiny is said to have imprinted himself on their mothers, without them knowing. Darren and Steve are therefore half-brothers.
To get back at Darren,Steve pretended that he loved Darren's younger sister, Annie Shan, and impregnates her with a child which he plans to use as a weapon. Darius is told to keep away from steve but Darius becomes in league with Steve and becomes a half-Vampaneze. Darren turns him into a half-Vampire in the end of the book.
The Vampire and the She-Wolf Edit
When a Vampire asked Mr Tiny to let him have children, Mr Tiny accepted. He mixed the blood of the Vampire with that of a pregnant She-Wolf and used his powers to create two children. He created a female and a male. The female took the name Evanna and the male Hibernius Tall. Evanna became a witch and Mr Tall became the owner of the Cirque du Freak. Hibernius was killed protecting a child by Morgan James in Lord of the Shadows.
