Wulfric Snaptrap (pronounced WUHL-frihk) is a harrier mage working for the Provost's Guard of Emelan's capital Summersea. He held the rank of colonel while on the Guard.[1] He was killed by Alzena and Nurhar Dihanur while investigating a murder.

Biography

Early life

He spoke with a Namornese accent,[1] which means that he must have been either from Namorn, or his parents were from Namorn. Much of his early life is not known.

Harrier

As a harrier, Wulfric was known for his brilliance in weeding out criminals and plots. In 1039 KF, he investigated the serial killings that were being carried out in the city of Summersea. He met Sandrilene fa Toren during this investigation while they were figuring out how unmagic worked. He was able to discern that the assassins had deep pockets.[1]

He was also an extremely accomplished harrier-mage, and was one of the best on the Provost's Guard at the time. Duke Vedris told Sandry that if he couldn't figure out what type of magic it was, then it must be a very rare kind indeed. The duke also said that Snaptrap knew more about criminal spells than anyone else on the force.

Physical description

Snaptrap was short and stocky, only a few inches taller than 14 year old Sandry's 5'4". He was an older man, and had curly white and gray hair that was cropped short.

Personality and traits

Wulfric often made brilliant wisecracks while on the job, which helped him befriend Sandry. He was not afraid to praise Sandry for doing great and helpful things, instead of the majority of other adults who wave off younger people's accomplishments.

He likely created his surname, as is custom of mages in the Circle Universe, in homage to his specialty. "Snaptrap" probably refers to catching a criminal, and triggering a trap.

Appearances

He only appears in Magic Steps.

Trivia

Tamora Pierce based him on Inspector Frost.[2]
