Herbert is Verdauga's companion, often seen following him around. He is a plant like creature with a pumpkin head. Raised from a young age with the intention to be baked for pumpernickel bread, Herbert came alive after being exposed to Verdauga's pipe smoke. He "speaks" but only Verdauga can hear him. From Verdauga's reactions to him, Herbert has a foul mouth and a bad attitude. Verdauga will often be heard saying "Oh.. no Herbet.. thats rude" or "You shouldn't say such things!" in his conversations with Herbert. Herbert gets tired sometimes and buries himself in the ground, and if he is not trailing behind Verdauga then he is on his shoulder or in his bag.
