Aye, seems to have taken a liking to ya. He's a clever fella, deserves to go out into the world, spread his wings, not stay couped up in an old town like this. Wanna buy him? I'll sell him to ya for a special price.

–Goat Man

Cornelius is a Goat Unique Recruit. He can be found in Settled Nomad Village in Dreg. Nomad Animal Trader sells Cornelius for 15,000, but if you talk to his owner, Goat Man, in a nearby Hideout building he will offer you a half off discount!

As with all animals, he technically has levels in skills he cannot use. These have no effect on him, nor can he ever raise them.

DO NOT leave the door open that he is in especially if you don't intend on buying him immediately. There are many roaming Hungry Bandits and Escaped Servants that he will attack. Despite being "unique" he cannot tank mobs by himself and once he leaves his hut he does not return to his owners side and can easily die from bleeding.
