Dr. Davaulus casts misdirection whenever he expects to be involved in a public scene; if he meets with the PCs, he chooses one of the chaotic good but unconscious Varisians as the spell’s target.
Davaulus considers himself a gentleman, even though his interests run to murder and cruelty. He engages in physical combat only as a last resort. When he fights, he uses Combat Expertise, saving hideous laughter for use against foes who seem to have more brawn than brains.
Davaulus attempts to flee if brought to fewer than 0 hit points, but fights to the death if no escape seems possible. Loyal to the Red Mantis, he does not surrender.
