In the Gorge of King Xorbb: Lord Syrkl is an Evil Eye, and he is an enchanter. The eyes in Beholder's Maze have the ability to charm, which can quickly turn an easy fight into a hard one. Along with the regular eyes, both of the Lords (Syrkl and Svyr) also drop optic nerves which are used as part of the crafted bracer quest for Warriors. The Polished Bone Bracers are highly sought after by mid-range casters.
In the Valley of King Xorbb: Lord Syrkl is part of the task "Escape From the Prison of Xorbb" (see this quest entry for details).
