Forficule was a nightwaif who worked for Mother Horsefeather during Stormchaser. He went to Sanctaphrax to give Vilnix Pompolnius false information, but Vilnix saw through the lies and tortured him into giving the full story, ordering his ears cut off when he was finished. Without his sense of hearing Forficule had no reason to live, so when Slitch tried to get him to grind stormphrax for him Forficule ground it before Slitch could get away, deliberately killing both himself and the goblin.
