Social information

Kruppe was a regular at the Phoenix Inn, in Darujhistan. He was described as a round little man with short, oily, curly hair and was known to exhibit mysterious powers and an abiding love of pastries. He has the ability to read the Deck of Dragons and a natural gift for prophecy. He refused to ride a horse, preferring his mule and had a habit of referring to himself in the third person.

In Gardens of the MoonEdit

Kruppe had numerous dreams where he encountered and formed a relationship with the Elder God K'rul. This later resulted in the Rhivi child Silverfox being birthed by the Mhybe in one of his dreams. He is revealed to be "the Eel", a mysterious person with several agents in this employement such as Circle Breaker.

In Memories of IceEdit

Kruppe manipulated his way into accompanying the renegade Onearm's Host and their allies to wage war on the Pannion Domin. Along the way, he encountered Hetan with whom he developed an attraction after numerous romantic encounters.

The romantic encounters with Hetan eventually impregnated her with twins, Stavi and Storii.

In Toll the HoundsEdit

Kruppe and Iskaral Pust particapate in a mounted mule charge in a fight against oneanother. Kruppe inadvertently punches Pust in the nose and the masses of Kruppe, Pust, Mogora (as spiders) and the bhokarala end in in a riving mess upon the floor.

At the close of the book Kruppe dances for K'rul with Fisher Kel Tath as witness. The two elder powers are humbled by Kruppe, with Fisher bowing his head in respect and the Elder God left weeping.

In The Crippled God Edit

Kruppe makes a brief appearance as Torrent traveled through a warren with Olar Ethil and Hetan's children. The Awl warrior found Kruppe sitting at his characteristic campsite within his dreams, gorging on sweets and wine. To protect his children, Kruppe gave the Awl a Rhivi bow and arrows, which the warrior ultimately used to slay Olar Ethil.
