Wendip Throx was a young fourthling who was a member of the academics-at-arms during The Winter Knights. He was assigned to guard-duty with Tonsor Wexis and Quiltis Wistelweb at the swivel catapults. He was there when the swivel catapult tore itself of its mounting and flew out into space, killing Tonsor and Quiltis, and afterwards he told Dengreeve Yellowtusk what happened.
