The Symol is a Petpet from Meridell that resembles a mole, and has a habit of burrowing into places it shouldn't be. They live in networks of warrens, dug by hand, their mining lit by candles. An entrance to one of these warrens, released on the 20th October 2004, is present in Meridell, near the Turmaculus, with which users can interact.

The Symol is currently available in 44 different colours:
