Mouse from Ultima VII manual
First appearance: Ultima VI
Last appearance: Serpent Isle

Mice are harmless. They are, however, a constant trouble in all places where food is stored. Lots of them can cause real damage. Thankfully, cats are useful to minimize the damage.

They can be found everywhere food is.



This timid rodent seldom ventures from its lair except under cover on night, and then only in search of crumbs of food. Cheesemakers are especially wary of the nocturnal activities of these otherwise benign creatures.

- from Compendium (Ultima VI)

This harmless rodent lives on whatever little scraps of food it can find, although it is especially fond of cheese. It occupies the space just beneath the cat on the food chain.

- from The Book of Fellowship (Ultima VII)

One of the smallest rodents known, this scavenger is quite useful as a test subject in spell research.

- from Beyond the Serpent Pillars (Ultima VII Part Two)
