Pleasure House Notes, Trivia and Notable Loot

  • You can find the ghost of a friendly pig-like bug, Poggy Thorax, in a kitchen within the Pleasure House. It appears (judging by his dialogue and the chopped-up bugs around him) he and his kin were being prepared and consumed like pork by some of the elites who visited the Pleasure House. 

  • Marissa, the ghost of a butterfly, can be found singing on a stage on the first floor. She is a songstress who used to sing for the elites of Hallownest who flocked there to visit her before the Infection.

    • We could use a page for Poggy Thorax as an NPC. I know he’s a minor ghost character, but his history quite is interesting.

      I feel so sad for him. I visit his ghost in my game whenever I’m in the area. It seems some of the elites of Hallownest in the City of Tears were eating him and his kin, as they are indeed seen chopped up in a kitchen of sorts within the Pleasure House, and judging by what Poggy says to you... The name, his dialogue, and his plump form with a curly tail suggests he is similar to a pig, and “poggy” in his name must be a corruption of “piggy” (and thus, he and his kind were eaten like pork?)
