Pahl is mentioned by Strasz the Bard as a knave, who leads a gang, which could possibly be if not the Rooks. He has a similar fighting style to the Rook member Stahl. In the Companion Canticle, he led his gang members through a cave, trapping many Arcane Pets. Once the Hero of Legend defeated the him and his gang members and freed the pets, the first Arcane Bond was made.
