Gorlas Vidikas was the first son of the Darujhistan noble house Tholius. As a young man he was among the rivals for the affections of Challice D'Arle. He was an accomplished duellist, but displayed a perceptible cruel streak.
At Lady Simtal's Gedderone Fête, Challice spent the night looking for Gorlas. When Crokus Younghand sought her out, she momentarily mistook him for Gorlas. Challice rebuffed Crokus' affections in favour of Gorlas, who later rescued her from the destruction caused by Raest's attack on the city.
At the meeting between Caladan Brood, Dujek Onearm, and representatives of the Darujhistan Noble Council, Kruppe enquired Estraysian D'Arle about the status of his daughter Challice's marriage to the hero of the fete. Estraysian responded that the wedding had not yet taken place.
Gorlas was now the husband of Challice and a member of the Council in Darujhistan.
