Pike has a brother Pollock who is a skilled fisherman and is well regarded by the citizens of Pilchard Bay and Estard, while Pike himself is not. As the player progresses through the early part of the game, one is inclined to distrust Pike. Pike also appears to have a serious problem with alcohol, seeing as how he is always drunk.
The Sizzling Stone
Pike also used to have the Sizzling Stone until he sold it to Bulgio, foolishly thinking that he has gotten the better end of the deal. The Sizzling Stone is the item needed to get Sir Mervyn to join the party.
