The prisoner, @, is a monster that rarely appears in NetHack. Prisoners are found only in jail cells on some quest levels, such as the Tourist quest or Wizard quest.


Freeing a prisoner can give an alignment bonus; although you may anger the guards, they will likely already be hostile to you at that point.
