Your misery, my wealth.

Ahzrukhal is the bartender who runs The Ninth Circle in Underworld in 2277.


Although well-mannered, Ahzrukhal is sneaky and sleazy and is adept at feeding peoples' misery. He dismisses others' morality and substitutes his own, rationalizing Charon's perpetual servitude to him as Charon's own error. In Ahzrukhal's opinion, the more miserable the patrons of his establishment are, and the more they drink, the more money ends up in his pocket. He hates competition and wishes to rid himself of Greta, who runs the only other bar in Underworld with her partner Carol, although the note on his terminal suggests the real reason he wants to get rid of Greta is so he could get Carol hooked on chems.[1] He relies on Charon to protect him and his bar.[2]

  • He has a unique voice that no other male ghoul has. It is much more gravelly and deep, and somewhat more refined both in accent and diction. He also makes wheezy gasping noises occasionally when taking a pause between sentences.
  • Attempting to speak to him with a gun drawn leads him to threaten to unleash Charon.
  • Turning off the radio at the bar causes Ahzrukhal to shout at the Lone Wanderer and turn it back on. Doing it enough will make him attack.
  • Hacking Ahzrukhal's computer will reveal some of his misdeeds, including planning to steal medicine from Doc Barrows to sell at his bar.
  • Killing him will make Underworld hostile, but Charon will talk as if he is still alive.
  • Obtaining Charon's contract will lead to Charon killing Ahzrukhal and eliminating a potential vendor for chems and alcohol.
  • He is one of only nine named characters in the base game to have "Very Evil" Karma.
  • He has a blue looking stubble, similar to Mister Crowley.
  • His name is misspelled "Akzrukhal" or "Ahzurkhal" in some of his dialogue.
