A young kobald warrior, the last surviving Sootscale of a doomed attack on the mite cavern.
A group of six mites are joyously tormenting
a captured Sootscale kobold—one of four black-scaled
kobolds who have been tied into the roots along the wall.
The other three already hang limply by their bonds, dead
from the mites’ torment. The last kobold shrieks in pain
as the six mites take turns poking it with sharp sticks—
each shriek eliciting a fresh wave of giggles and cheers
from the mites.
The kobold is a young warrior named
Mikmek, the last surviving Sootscale of a doomed attack
on the mite cavern. If rescued, Mikmek swallows his pride
and falls to his knees and thanks his saviors in chirping
Common. He promises the PCs “many treasures” if they
help him finish his quest to rescue the Sootscales’ holy
statue from these nasty blue mites, and if armed with a
weapon he can use he squeals in delight and, at least until
they reach the chieftain of the Sootscales, will be a loyal
companion to the PCs.
