In Steel Soul Mode, Tuk is infected and cannot be bartered with for eggs, likely due to the fact that Rancid Eggs are used to generate Geo with Steel Soul Jinn. Tuk cannot be interacted with, only one Rancid Egg is found on their body.
Mmmnnnnnnngghhh... Don't take something that isn't yours. That's the law.
Everything you see... it belongs to me. Don't be angry. I'll share my food with you...
if you give me Geo.
Mngh? If you don't want it, I'll keep it.
Not enough Geo:
Why don't you have enough Geo?! Mnnghh! I won't share my food if you can't give me Geo.
Mnngh... this Geo is mine now. Don't try to take it back. Here, take your food with you when you leave.
Having maximum amount of eggs:
You have a lot of food, don't you? Mnngh... I can smell it on you. You're greedy... I won't share with you.
|Greeting||Mmmnnnnnnngghhh... The water brings me everything I wish for... I just need to find it. It brought you here, too. Are you hungry? I'll share my food with you... if you give me Geo.|
|Talking again||I'll share my food with you... if you give me Geo.|
|While wearing Defender's Crest||Mmnnnnggghhh...? Your smell... Are you a friend, too? If you're a friend, I'll share my food with you. When you see him again, our friend... tell him thank you. For helping me.|
|Dream Nail||Mmmnnnnnnngghhh... I'll find you again. The water will bring you to me. I just need to keep searching... and praying.
When we meet again... I want you to say... that you're sorry.
- In the official comic, Quirrel comes across a bug similar to Tuk, though with a different outfit. This bug refers to itself as "Boon." This could be the person Tuk is searching for.
