The Mercenary Captain is the leader of all of the Mercenaries in the Desert Mining Camp, and is hired to guard the entrance of it to prevent people accessing the camp and discovering the slave-trade that was going on there. The Mercenary Captain plays a role in the Tourist Trap quest, in which he must be provoked to the point of outrage so that he initiates combat with the player himself, rather than having his mercenaries do his dirty work for him. After being killed by the player, the Captain drops a Metal key which can open the gate to the Desert Mining Camp.
