Black Company Wiki

Lhopal Pete was a sworn brother of the Black Company mentioned briefly in She Is the Darkness. He originated from Taglios. Murgen wrote that the "Pete" part of his nickname was derived "from the center syllable of an eleventeen-syllable Gunni godname". But he was referred to as "Lhopal Pete" in full to distinguish him from Khusavir Pete.

Lhopal Pete was one of Big Bucket's favorite subordinates. He reported to Bucket regarding his work party, which had been assigned to transport water, as they prepared to cross the Shadowgate as a group for the first time. Lhopal kept his work party out of the way so that Croaker and Murgen could subdue Soulcatcher, who was in disguise as Sleepy. He is not mentioned again in the Annals. If he joined the ill-fated group, he either became one of the approximately 35 Captured, or, was one of the 13 persons who died on the glittering plain. If he remained beneath the Shadowgate, he presumably fought for Sleepy during the Kiaulune wars.
