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 people's heads to make them cause world wide chaos and war and destruction.
He has short white hair, thick glasses and pudgy face, with a warm but mocking smile. He wears a shabby yellow suit and a pair of green wellington boots. He has six toes, with webbed feet, carries a heart shaped watch, and has six cat-like claws on each foot. He is most likely a god and is probably as old as the universe, if not older.
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.
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 Leonard, friends since childhood, enemies since their later teenage years, are both sons of Desmond 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 rapes her and in doing so gives her a child (Darius), 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.
