"Let the manes put off their terror, let them put off their aqueous bodies with fire.
      Let them draw together the bones of the metal.
      Selvaggia, Guiscarda, Mandetta,
      Rain flakes of gold on the water
      Azure and flaking silver of water,
      Pallor of silver, pale lustre of Latona,
      By these, from the malevolence of the dew
      Guard this alembic.
      Elain, Tireis, Allodetta
      Quiet this metal."
      -Ezra Pound

Perfect

The alchemist is a member of the grazing hedonists faction who resides in Ovw bethesda susa.pngBethesda Susa, on the third level of the ruined ward.[1] They are a mysterious figure with a special love for all things liquid.

Character

The alchemist is a hermit and a liquid-tinker who has set up their workshop within the depths of Bethesda Susa. They purport to be a "connoisseur" of liquids, but claim to "dabble" in other states of matter as well.

The alchemist seems to be well known in Qud, at least amongst other liquid-tinkers. Ichor merchant.pngichor merchants will occasionally mention their desire to "plumb the depths of Bethesda Susa" in order to meet the alchemist. Hortensa.pngHortensa names the alchemist as an "amateur liquid-tinker, poet, [and] merchant", and claims their methods "aren't scientific", warning the player to be careful around them.

Wares

The alchemist is notable for selling one dram of every kind of liquid in Phial.pngphials, with the exception of Water.pngwater.[2] This includes some exceptionally rare and valuable liquids such as Cloningdraught.pngcloning draught, Neutronflux.pngneutron flux, and Brain brine.pngbrain brine. They do not restock.

Combat

Despite being a merchant, the alchemist is by no means weak. When in combat, the alchemist will attack by violently exploding, dealing ♥10d10+250260-350 (Avg: 305) damage to anything caught within the blast radius. The explosion is considered neutronic and has a force of 15,000.[3] This kills the alchemist.

However, the alchemist is also quite conflict avoidant: they will immediately cease hostilities and begin fleeing from threats if their hitpoints fall below 99%[4] of their maximum.[5]

Belonging to the grazing hedonists faction, the alchemist normally will not initiate attack with the player or other creatures, but other creatures in Ovw bethesda susa.pngBethesda Susa will attack them, like Eyeless king crab.pngeyeless king crabs or Lurking beth.pnglurking beths. Clearing out the floor so no creatures of an opposing faction will meet the alchemist is recommended to prevent untimely neutronic-related death.

Properties

Speaking to the alchemist grants the Quiet This Metal achievement.[4]
