Always nice to see a lovely lady all the way out here no man's land! What can I do for you, sister?

Harmothoe is a unique member of the Free Traders. She can be found leading a caravan, which can trade goods with the player. She can be found in either Heng or Trader's Edge.

Her caravan includes 2 Pack Beasts and 8 to 10 Caravan Guards.

She is warmly receptive to female characters, and more curt and rude to males. She outright refuses to deal with Skeletons and may trigger combat with any skeletons who speak to her.

Bard sings a song about her, which alleges she was originally a slave in Rebirth that escaped by killing the guards, including a High Paladin that raped her.

If she is killed, a Caravan Trader Boss (Free Traders) will replace her position.

They wear [Shoddy] armour (5% chance of [Standard]) and have weapons manufactured by Skeleton Smiths.

Ballad of Harmothoe[]

"Harmothoe, Harmothoe, she lived a live of anguish!

For chained in Rebirth she was condemned to languish,

'Til one day she'd been ravished by the high paladin most vile!

And she swore her dark vengeance with a murderous smile...

She stashed a long nail, forged to a blade...

And one by one the guards were slayed...

Now the high paladin lies dead, a nail in the eyeball...

With it the name Harmothoe, in blood on the high wall!"


  • Harmothoe is the name of an Amazon in Greek mythology, and the likely inspiration for the name.
  • If the player takes the helmet off her head, the player can notice that she has an unusual red hair.
  • According to the dialogue, Harmothoe names her blade "Nail" and has a tendency to stash it into the eyes of her enemies.
  • Harmothoe claims that Moll is her leader.
