"Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

Inigo Montoya is a skilled swordsman from Spain.

BiographyEdit

His father, Domingo, was a skilled swordsmith who made a special sword for Count Rugen, to accommodate his six-fingered right hand.

When Rugen returned, he was only willing to pay one tenth of the price (one fiftieth in the novel) he had promised. When Domingo refused to sell it to him and declared Inigo the rightful owner, he stabbed Inigo's father through the heart. Inigo, then just eleven, witnessed this and challenged Rugen to a duel, which he lost. Rugen let him live and keep the sword, but scarred his face.

Inigo then dedicated his life to the study of fencing, studying under all of the greatest masters of the time. That way, when he found his father's killer again, he wouldn't lose. When he meets Count Rugen again, he tells him, "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die

Despite being wounded by Rugen three times, Inigo repeated the phrase multiple times before killing Rugen, and avenging his father's death.  It is interesting to note that the wounds Count Rugen suffers in the climactic fight — two slashes to the face and a killing thrust through the abdomen — are identical to the wounds suffered by Inigo (the two slashes to the face as an eleven-year-old "Spanish brat" and a wound to the stomach caused by a knife thrown by Rugen). 

Inigo is a Swordsman (The rank above master) of the sword, and although he is right-handed, he is also very proficient at fencing with his left hand.
