Murgo is an "honest" merchant in Fable II who sells so-called "Old Kingdom Artifacts" in Bowerstone Old Town. Most of his wares can be considered worthless; for example, he is observed selling a mirror which transforms anyone who looks into it beautiful... but it only functions in complete darkness. He is assumed to be a descendant of the original Murgo.

However, one of his artifacts proves to be more genuine than he suspects; he sells Rose and Sparrow a music box, valued at five gold pieces, which proves instrumental to the main plot. An initially sceptical Rose states that the box is "rubbish", and is immediately corrected by Theresa, who asserts that the seller has "no idea of its true value".

Murgo also sells a thesaurus to Barnum, and is the presumed author of "Murgo's Big Book of Trading". Following the commercial success of this book, Murgo commissioned a series of statues of himself, illustrating the lessons of each chapter to be made, though they all mysteriously disappeared.

Murgo arrives in Bowerstone once again in See the Future. He sells you two cursed items, a cursed snowglobe and a cursed skull, as well as new clothing, make-up, and potions which allow the player to change their dog breed. Also, as part of a quest reward you get a Spire Statue which is ultimately the goal of See the Future. After using the Spire Statue, Murgo gives you the Colosseum model. Upon giving it to you he implies that he got it from Theresa.

  • During the beginning of the game, Murgo has a slight speech impediment which causes him difficulty in pronouncing the letter "R" (Rhotacism). For example, "Miwwow" or "Childwen." However, when he appears in "See The Future", he seems to have lost it, to the point of rolling his r's at times.

  • In Fable III, during the quest Gone But Not Forgotten, when Max starts playing the organ he plays the tune from Murgo's caravan, and thus the tune from Bowerstone in the original Fable.
