Discworld Wiki

Mentioned in The Colour of Magic, Bravd the Hublander is a barbarian hero who often partnered with Weasel. He is the taller and more muscular of the two and carries a large sword almost as tall as a man. He and Weasel are the first two characters named and described in the Discworld series. They were outside of Ankh-Morpork when a fire ripped through the city and watched it with interest while betting on the source of an explosion. They met Rincewind and Twoflower, who had escaped the city, and listened to their tale of how the fire began with some interest and disbelief.

Bravd and Weasel are parodies of the popular sword & sorcery heroes Fafhrd and Gray Mouser created by Fritz Leiber, Bravd being very similar to Fafhrd and Weasel having some affinity with Gray Mouser.
