The Piper, also known as "Silvernose", was once one of Capricorn's fire-raisers before Mortimer Folchart read his leader out of the Inkworld. He was a minstrel of Adderhead's court.

Biography[edit | edit source]

The Piper earned his nickname because his nose was made entirely of silver; a gift from the Adderhead after his own nose was cut off. He was Capricorn's servant before serving the Adderhead. The Piper threatened to send all the children in Ombra to the silver mines unless the women handed over the Bluejay, causing dismay, fury, and fear.[1] This caused the children to be hidden and Mo to turn himself in so that he could save the children and have a chance to destroy the White Book and write the three words in it after the Adderhead came to visit. The Piper caused many disruptions uncalled for in Ombra. He was killed after the death of the Adderhead, when Resa distracted him and Mo thrust his dagger into the Piper's chest.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

He is based on Tycho Brahe,[citation needed] who had the bridge of his nose cut off in a duel with his third cousin, replacing it with a metal one. He is skinny and cuts peoples heads off.
