Drink until she's pretty! Ha ha ha ha! Sorry... Ghoul joke. I guess you wouldn't get it.

— Ahzrukhal, Fallout 3.

Ahzrukhal is the bartender who runs The Ninth Circle in Underworld in Fallout 3.


Although well-mannered and a natty dresser, 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 Ahzrukal 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. He relies on Charon to protect him and his bar.[1]

Drops on death


  • 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.
  • If you attempt to speak to him with your gun not holstered, he will threaten you with Charon.
  • If you turn off the radio at the bar, Ahzrukhal will shout at you and turn it back on. If you do it enough he will attack you.
  • 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.
  • Ahzrukhal is a fairly good seller of chems and alcohol, but obtaining Charon's contract will lead to Charon killing Ahzrukhal, so if you already have a follower or aren't fully interested in one, it may be a bad idea to obtain Charon's contract.

Notable quotes

  • "Ghoul, human...I don't care. The caps all spend the same"
  • "Your misery, my wealth"
  • "Don't you look absolutely...miserable. Pull up a stool and lay down a few caps, and tell Uncle Ahzrukhal all about it"
  • "Pretty much, I point at something and Charon hurts it. He's the best thug a corrupt bartender could ever ask for. He never bothers me with his own annoying sense of morality"


Ahzrukhal appears only in Fallout 3.

    Although well-mannered and a natty dresser, Ahzrukhal (the proprietor of the Ninth Circle Bar) is sneaky and sleazy, and is adept at feeding peoples' misery. In Ahzrukhal's narrow view of the world, the more miserable you are, the more you drink, and the more you drink, the more money ends up in his pocket. He hates competition, and wishes he could rid himself of Carol and Greta."
