Dregling Merchant


While most residents of the Boletarian Castle were killed, fled, or became soul-starved; the Dregling Merchant remained in hiding, venturing out stealthily to pick valuable items off the corpses of residents and warriors to trade for souls to would-be Demon slayers traveling through the castle.

As he is one of the few characters who was sane and escaped capture or death during the entirety of the scourge, he has a wealth of first-hand information about the current situation in Boletaria. Much of his dialogue informs that Player of the state of Boletaria before the invasion of Demons from the perspective of the lower classes, which has a far more dark sound to it than nobility such as Biorr of the Twin Fangs or Ostrava's words. He is upfront about the King Allant bringing the Demons back with him from his travels, and talks about how the poor were often conscripted as slave soldiers in the country's wars, going so far as to call working under the Demons an improvement. He is also an indication of how knowledgeable the lower classes might have been to the overall state of the royalty of Boletaria, as he is able to discover Ostrava's true identity and relays the information to Biorr. His cheerful demeanor is a far cry from the wild and animal behavior of the others of his caste amongst the Demons, begging the question whether he retained his sanity through some means or is simply an outlier.

He can be found hiding in Boletarian Palace: behind a barricade in 1-1, at the northern end inside the bridge in 1-2, and in the small house with the Red-Eyed Knight near the locked gate in 1-3.


Title of theory.
