Hemphix Root was one of the thirteen Knights Academic in the events taking place in the The Winter Knights. When Hax Vostillix claimed that many great storms were imminent, he was sent on a stormchasing quest, only to turn turvey as soon as his skyship was launched, and was pulled out to Open Sky before he had a chance to parawing out. He was never seen again along with all the other Knight Academics.
