Don't you look absolutely...miserable. Pull up a stool and lay down a few Caps, tell Uncle Ahzrukhal all about it.

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


As a bartender, Ahzrukhal initially only offers alcohol, but through dialogue options (no Speech check), it is possible to convince him to offer drugs like Buffout, Jet and Psycho.


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.Fallout 3 Official Game Guide/Wasteland Census
