Entry of the Day - Festus
1. Festus
Pet belonging to Mrs. Grimwold. An inhabitant of Level 1 in Series 3 of Knightmare. Heard snarling off-screen, and presumed to be a canine, though never seen. Festus had five tails, and used to have three heads, until Grimwold bit one of them off. It was sometimes necessary for a dungeoneer to appease Festus, in order to gain access to the wellway into Level 2. For example, Team 2 of Series 3 had a bone that was given to Festus. Festus was presumed to be bloodthirsty and dangerous, but could usually be subdued (i.e. made to shut up) by Mrs. Grimwold. However, she was struggling so much during the quest of Team 12 of Series 3 that some fans believe that Festus devoured her, explaining her absence from further episodes of Knightmare. Perhaps the closest a dungeoneer came to victory of Festus was when Kelly from Team 7 of Series 3 was transformed into the intimidating form of the Dungeon Behemoth.

Festus was arguably based on Cerberus, the multi-headed guard dog of the Underworld in Greek mythology. Perhaps the name is meant to evoke the word 'festers' (or Faustus, the character from The Tragical History Of Doctor Faustus with dark and hellish connections). Hugo Myatt revealed during an interview in The Quest (Volume 2, Number 2) that Festus was his favourite character. Tom Karol, who interpreted Festus' actions in his role as Mrs. Grimwold, revealing during an interview by James Aukett in 2012 that Festus' appearance 'was very much left to mine and the viewers' imagination. I saw him as a great big wolfhound actually, it was a bit like 'Er Indoors in [the TV series] Minder – we never saw 'Er Indoors did we, so we never saw Festus.'

Information on Festus' Knightmare RPG incarnation is available in the Festus (RPG) entry.
