Lone Wolf the Pickpocket (こそどろ一匹オオカミ, Kosodoro Ippiki Ōkami?, lit. Lone Wolf the Petty Thief) is a character who has appeared twice in the series. He is a werewolf, a thief, and is known to steal treasure from chests before the party obtains them. He is also frequently seen imprisoned.
Lone Wolf is first seen imprisoned in Walse Castle. The party can select to free him or leave him captured. If he is freed, he will steal several treasures from their chests in dungeons elsewhere in the world, and the party cannot get them. For example, he steals the Blitz Whip in Jachol Cave.
Lone Wolf is first seen imprisoned in Figaro Castle. He cannot be freed here. However, he eventually escapes and makes his way to Narshe. After obtaining the Blackjack, the party can return to the treasure room in Narshe and find Lone Wolf trying to open a locked chest. However, he flees to the mines. The party can follow him to the ledge where Valigarmanda is sitting.
There, he is holding Mog hostage. If the party waits where he asks them to for a minute, he and Mog will fly off the ledge, and the party must choose to save either Lone Wolf or Mog. Freeing Lone Wolf gives the party a Gold Hairpin, while freeing Mog causes Mog to join the party. However, no matter who the party chooses, Lone Wolf will fall down. When the party returns to Narshe in World of Ruin, Lone Wolf is running out of Narshe.
