Hiddukel (hid-doo-keel) is the deity of exploitation and ill-gotten wealth and deals. He is patron to dishonest merchants, businessmen and thieves. It is said that he is the only god who can barter with Takhisis and come out ahead. Hiddukel continuously seeks to make bargains in exchange for the souls of mortals.

Hiddukel was called from the Beyond by Takhisis. He is a coward at heart, and gets along well with the other gods of Evil, as he always diverts attentions elsewhere if any of them suspect his duplicity. He is despised by Reorx for tricking him into creating the Greygem.

During the War of the Lance, his followers work to “welcome” visitors to the Dark Queen’s Temple.
