Pompadour is a vain Skeith who thinks he's a treasure hunter. He heard of the vast treasures in the ruins of Old Maraqua, but didn't realise they were underwater. Not wanting to get his hair wet, Pompadour instead captured Maraquan Petpets to collect the treasure for him.
Yeah, I come here to pick up new workers, I mean, new Petpets. Cute little critters, right? *cough* Just stay out of my way. I'm sure you'll be no competition catching the varmints, but you wouldn't want to get hurt by my awesome whirlpool technique.
Now that the pesky Petpet Appreciation types have gone home again, let's get down to business. I have a wager with some pirate friends regarding a cannon and a certain faerie Slorg, and I mean to make a tidy profit.
Hey! Hey you! Come here and help me out. These little guys could use some help collecting my treasure, but see this hair? It's too perfect to get wet.
Ah, you there! Do me a favor and fetch my treasure down there! I'd go myself but I'm sure just by looking at me you can tell why I wouldn't want to dive into that filthy water.
Great! More treasure hunters! That's alright, you won't be able to gather more treasure than my petpets can. Go ahead and try but don't splash that water on my gorgeous hair!!
