Being a variety of mandragora exceptional among its kind for a high degree of intelligence, the most often cited evidence of this being the clothes, gloves, and boots it is known to wear. It lives in the manner of men, and exhibits a personality startlingly similar to ours. It is richly expressive, and fond of making hideous faces - this same playfulness illustrated by the pumpkin mask it wears upon its head.
The Pumpkin Head is not at all a dangerous enemy when encountered. They usually attack in groups of two or three, but a few casts of Blizzara can easily defeat them all at once. They are often found asleep on the path through Salikawood, and if the player doesn't attack them they can simply walk by without a fight.
