Pet Nix-Hound

A pet Nix-Hound can be purchased from Revus Sarvani (or Geldis Sadri if Revus is already dead) as part of the related quest.

The nix-hound is essential, and will not engage in combat. Its main function is to carry items, and it has a carry weight of 75 and it will follow you even if you already have another pet following you. You can instruct it to wait at a city, wait at its current location, wait at your house, or to carry items. It can also be summoned using a teleportation spell. The nix-hound cannot be detected by Detect Dead or Detect Life.

If following you, it will occasionally give you a random ingredient[verification needed — need full list]. When this happens, you will receive a message saying, "Nix-Hound found something..."
