Urgl is a gnome who lives with her husband, Engywook, near the Southern Oracle. In chapter 5 she treats Atreyu and Falkor when they are poisoned by Ygramul, giving them medicine and dressing their wounds with herbs and plant fibres.
Urgl wears a bonnet and brown robes, similar to a monk's habit, both made with withered leaves.
“It was the wrinkliest, shriveledest face [Atreyu] had ever seen, and only about the size of a fist. It was as brown as a baked apple, and the eyes in it glittered like stars.” -The Neverending Story (1979)
