"Slip didn't mean to oversleep, Slip's a good worker, he is. He'll get up now. Get to work at once..."

Slip was a grey goblin scuttler from the Eastern Woods, who traveled with Nate Quarter across the Edgeworld after leaving his job at the Prade Phraxmine.

Role in The Immortals

Slip was a sweeper in the phraxmines of Galston Prade where he worked for twelve years. He overheard a conversation of Grint Grayle and warned Nate that he was to be punished. After Rudd's death, Nate took Slip with him to Great Glade, where the two companions became close friends. In Great Glade, Slip enjoyed growing vegetables, especially blue pumpkins.

During the journey from Great Glade to the Midwood Decks, Slip became skilled with a blackwood bow and hunted animals for the party.

When Nate decided to become a descender, Slip and Eudoxia stayed in Sanctaphrax to rebuild the old city.


Slip was somewhat dim from working as a scuttler for so many years in the phraxmines, but he was a loyal and faithful companion. His health and state of mind continuously got better once he left the Prade Phraxmine.
