Midge Chanter was the brother of Tiny Chanter, captain of the Unreasoning Vengeance. Like all of his family, he was a huge, massively muscled man. The Chanter family appeared to have Tarthenal or Jaghut blood in their family line, and Midge may have had tusks like several of his kin.[1][2] Midge was the twin of Flea Chanter and there were rumors that their sire was a walrus.[3]

Midge wore clothes draped with walrus and seal skins.[4]

In The Lees of Laughter's EndEdit

Midge was on board the Chanter ship that pursued Captain Sater and her crew of ex-Chanter garrison renegades on board the stolen Suncurl. He and his kin sought the return of the Toll's City treasury as well as bloody revenge. They caught sight of the Suncurl just as its shaken and savaged crew finished dealing with the dual threats of a murderous lich and six demonic statues.[5]

In The Wurms of BlearmouthEdit

The Unreasoning Vengeance clashed with the Suncurl in a terrific battle during a rainstorm. The already damaged Suncurl wrecked on a reef near Spendrugle and Midge and the remaining Chanters pursued the few survivors into town. His brother Tiny was ready to kill everyone in Spendrugle in order to sate his vengeance.[6] The Chanters planned to begin their murder spree at the King's Heel tavern, but were convinced to sit down for a meal by proprietor Feloovil Generous.[7] When the tavern was attacked by Red, the D'ivers lizard cat, a wild melee erupted. Flea and Lesser Chanter and many tavern regulars were killed before Tiny beheaded Witch Hurl.[8] The Chanters then made their way to Wurms Keep to murder the town's lord. There Midge's brother Scant spied the deadly demonic cookies baked by the necromancer Bauchelain. They excitedly descended upon the treats, but it was not revealed which Chanters may have eaten them and perished.[9]

In Crack'd Pot TrailEdit

Midge, Tiny, Flea, and Relish Chanter joined a caravan travelling along the Cracked Pot Trail in order to pursue Bauchelain and Korbal Broach. When the caravan ran out of food and started killing and butchering their fellow travelers, Midge happily participated. He enjoyed helping Tiny torment the group of artists chosen to be sacrificed for the caravan's meals and making them perform in competition for the right to live another day.[10] Suspecting that the carriage of Dantoc Calmpositis actually contained Bauchelain and Korbal Broach, Midge and his brothers attacked. The carriage went out of control, dragging the brothers over a cliff. Midge and Flea appeared to die on the rocks below, but Tiny's body was not found.[11]

In The Fiends of NightmariaEdit

Midge was one of the ultimate survivors of the dire events of the Crack'd Pot Trail who arrived safely at the city of Farrog. Sometime near the conclusion of the 'Festival of Flowers and Sunny Days' - Midge was arrested on the orders of the new King of Farrog, the usurper, regicide, and necromancer, Bauchelain the First. Midge (together with six other Cracked Pot Trail survivors - i.e., Apto Canavalian, Brash Phluster, Flea Chanter, Steck Marynd, Tiny Chanter, and Tulgord Vise) was taken to a torture chamber in the crypts of the Royal Palace of Farrog. There, the seven survivors were tortured - in rotation - on the rack by the Royal Torturer, Binfun...with far worse in the offing.[12] Luckily, these particular prisoners, including Midge, were able to escape with the aid of Shartorial Infelance, the Royal Palace's Seneschal,[13][14] and were soon wandering the crypt tunnels.[15]

At one point, Midge and the others had a mayhem-filled encounter with a group of thieves - the 'Party of Five' - who were also wandering the tunnels for reasons of their own.[16] After some badly-needed healing at the Royal Apothecary,[17][18] Apto Canavalian and Brash Phluster left the others and set off, individually,[19] while the others, including Midge, continued on together.[20]

The remaining five escaped prisoners, including Midge, found their way to the Throne Room of the Royal Palace...where they hoped to find King Bauchelain and Korbal Broach. Entering the Throne Room, the group encountered the Demon Prince, Prince Flail Their Limbs...just leaving, and an Enthroned Demonic Mouse ensconced on the Throne. Due to an inadvertent action on the part of the escaped prisoners, a cascade of unexpected disasters were unleashed.[21][22] The ultimate fate of Midge and the others was not given.
