A gnome taskmaster
A wretch of a gnome, a taskmaster who loves his job because he gets to bully human children who are even smaller than him (well, most of them, anyways). Hookshanks is quick to punish kids with his sap and threatens to “feed them to the dog”—even the kids bigger than Hookshanks have learned to shut up and follow the gnome’s orders as a result. Hookshanks
usually dresses the part of an orphan himself.
