Pombo and Rian[1]

Pombo was a Podling musician.

History[]

Pombo lived in a village in Sami Thicket where his fellow Podlings became very aggressive as a result of drinking poisoned water. Upon the arrival of Rian, Brea, Deet and their allies, Pombo promised to help them if he saved his village. Together, they discovered that SkekTek had been performing experiments on the Podlings in an attempt to create an army for the Skeksis. Pombo and his new allies defeated SkekTek and drove him back to the Castle of the Crystal. The poisoned Podlings continued to close in around them, at which point Rian suggested that Pombo play a song to put them to sleep. Pombo did so, freeing his people from the effects of SkekTek's experiments. He travelled with his new allies and fought alongside them in many battles of the Gelfling resistance.[1]
