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

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 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]

  • Agatha's Song: You can sell the Soil Stradivarius to Ahzrukhal for 200 caps (or 300 with a Speech check), instead of returning it to Agatha.
  • Hired Help: Asking Ahzrukhal about alternatives to paying for Charon's contract starts the quest.

Other interactions

  • As a bartender, Ahzrukhal initially only offers alcohol, but through dialogue options (no speech check), you can convince him to sell you drugs like Buffout, jet and psycho.



  • 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.
  • 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"
  • "Well now, lookee here. We got us a smoothskin what I ain't ever seen before. I'm Ahzrukhal, and this... this is the Ninth Circle."


Ahzrukhal appears only in Fallout 3.


  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 Sometimes when you inform Charon that you have obtained his contract, he will walk up to Ahzrukhal and do nothing, particularly if Ahzrukhal is asleep. This will prevent you from talking to both Charon and Ahzrukhal.
