Pikel is the antithesis of his brother; his hair is dyed green, and worn braided behind his ears, and a follower of the way of the druid. (which Pikel pronounces 'doo-dad'). Pikel's clothing is also unique among dwarves, preferring a green sleeveless robe and sandals over armor and heavy boots. When in battle, he often dons a cooking pot for a helmet. His weapon of choice is the shillelagh, a magical druid club. He always refers to this weapon as a "Sha-la-la!". Pikel's vocabulary is mostly restricted to "Hee Hee Hee", "Poof!", "Wee!", "Ooo," and "Boom", his brother usually translating for everyone else. He is often identified by his trademark "Oo oi!" Whenever Ivan refers to Pikel as "me brother", Pikel always echoes with "Me brudder". He also yells "Booner!" when he hears of Bruenor Battlehammer. He is often portrayed as childish and curious showing an odd sense of courage such as being unafraid of Drizzt's magic panther. He recently lost an arm during the War against Obould Many-Arrows. Pikel seems to have some druidic characteristics, for in the past, he has charmed animals, and talked to stone and tree. Pikel begins his druid training in the fallen fortress and then becomes a full-fledged druid.
