Caprichoso, commonly called Cap or Cappie, is the mule of Sheemie. He carries Sheemie from the Barony of Mejis after the events of Wizard and Glass and is with him when he arrives at Gilead.

The mule nearly gets taken by Slow Mutants, however Cuthbert Allgood and Alain Johns save the mule and Sheemie from them.

When Roland and his Ka-tet arrive at the Emerald City they discover each of them has a pair of custom made Ruby Shoes waiting for them. While the mentally disabled Sheemie rides on Cappie the mule, the physically disabled Susannah receives two cappies to "ride" on, decorated with rhinestones or diamonds. This is another example of Ka acting as a wheel.
