Career

Literary Career

Before becoming a eunuch, he was well known for writing the shortest stories in Foon, and was nominated for several Foonian literary awards. His stories were very short, often just a letter or a sound.

Here are some selected works. Note that the title is also the entirety of the story. Angled brackets indicate descriptions of sounds; in which case the sound is also the entirety of the story.

  • "<high pitched boong! sound>": This was the story of elvish widow who comes to terms with her husband not coming back from the elvish armies of 7th realm. She gives herself permission to embark on a relationship with a centaur tamer that she has had a latent flirtation with.
  • "<sexual grunt>": This story clearly has an erotic frankness, but it is also considered anti-war and pro-humanistic. As such, it was banned in over 72% of libraries in Foon.

Court of Queen Titania

In the course of his duties in Queen Titania's court, he keeps a leather-bound journal of secrets, the most sensitive of which are written in phoenix blood (which only other eunuchs can see), and the rest written in raven's blood. He is also the "procurer of things they need to find". He gets most of his secrets from birds, and keeps an aviary of gossiping birds in the northeast.

He was demoted from Court Eunuch to Adjunct Eunuch for failing to return Arnie to the court of Queen Titania. He is stripped of all courtly privileges and had to reattend eunuch classes 1-3 before auditioning for Court Eunuch at the end of the next term. He missed the sign-up period in October, and the role of Court Eunuch instead went to rival Duncan Brittlebrain.

Following his failure to regain his position, he allied himself with Princess Trachea-Aurelia Belaroth to assist her in murdering her brother. They are currently trying to produce a Tosser-winning play to lure Tom out of hiding.

Personal Life

He has a nephew, Bartholomew Whisperbrew. He also has very well-formed nostrils. Following his demotion, he briefly considering reattaching himself.
