Lil' Zik is pet that can be obtained from completing the Theatre of Blood. It is a much smaller version of Verzik Vitur's final form.
Players have a chance of receiving the pet when looting the monumental chests in Verzik's treasure vault; the drop rate is dependent on the player's performance during the raid, with a drop rate of 1/650 if the player has performed optimally in the Theatre.
When a player receives the pet, it will automatically try to appear as their follower. At the same time, a red message in the chatbox will state You have a funny feeling like you're being followed.
However, if a player receives a pet while having a follower out (for example, a cat), it will be placed into their inventory. When this occurs, the message in the chatbox will instead state You feel something weird sneaking into your backpack. If a players inventory is full and they have a follower already, they will not receive the pet.
On death, if a player loses their pet (as a follower or in your inventory) it will wander around for 30 seconds before disappearing completely.
Players can pay a one-time fee of 500,000 coins to Probita in East Ardougne to have this pet insured. Should the pet be lost while insured, it can be reclaimed for 1,000,000 coins.
