Sarpling, from Ultima VII
Species: Gargoyle
Ultima VII
Location: Terfin

Sarpling is a wingless gargoyle who runs a jewelry and reagent shop on Terfin.

In Ultima VII, the Avatar may be asked by Teregus to investigate a plot to destroy the Shrines of the Principles. The provisioner, Betra, can inform the Avatar that other than himself, only Sarpling would have the needed equipment for destroying the shrines.

The Avatar can uncover a scroll in Sarpling's shop, written by Runeb, which implicates them in the conspiracy. If confronted with this, Sarpling will confess his participation and detail the entirety of the plot - that Runeb wishes to destroy the shrines, and frame Quan for the incident that he might become leader of the Terfin Fellowship. He also states that if the framing fails, Runeb will go so far as to murder Quan, and makes it evident that he is fearful of Runeb, himself.


  • Sarpling translates to "Snake Tongue" in Gargish.
