Typical merchant, Ultima IV
First appearance: Ultima I
Last appearance: Ultima IX

Without the merchants of the land, there would be no trade! Normally respectable individuals providing a wide array of goods and services, some are involved in shady dealings. If they spot a thief, they can quickly bring the wrath of the town guards upon the perpetrator.

Normally docile, some will readily fight if necessary to protect their goods.



Unarmed and mild, the grassroots of Ultima II, merchants rarely fight.

- from Ultima II (Revenge of the Enchantress)

The mainstay of Sosaria's prosperity. They operate the shops in town to the benefit of all. Some are not very clever, and if a sharp Thief is in thy Party, then a chest or two might be stolen from under the Merchant's nose. If thy Thief is caught stealing, the entire town guard will assault thee.

- from The Book of Play (Ultima III)
