|A wise kobold would fear the forces of Hell, and certainly would not set up a highly lucrative transdimensional trade in damned souls. But Pikel is better known for his whip than his wisdom, mercilessly tormenting his piteous charges as he ferries them to their buyers.|
Pikel, Merchant of Souls is a unique kobold who has a number of lemures under his command. He is dangerous on his own, wielding an enchanted whip of flaming (40% chance), freezing (40%), or electrocution (20% chance, and by far the most dangerous). With the help of his thralls, he is more than a match for most low-level characters. If you can manage to kill him, however, his slaves will be freed and will leave the Dungeon.

Tips & Tricks
- If you intend to face him in melee, don't allow any of his lemures to reach you; he does enough damage on his own. Facing him in a hallway or luring him upstairs helps.
- Confusion through Mephitic Cloud can easily disable both him and his thralls, often with lethal results.
- Successfuly using a wand of charming on him will free his captured souls, despawning any lemures in the process. See the history for more details.
