Role in the Cade Saga
Phineal Glyfphith got to know Cade when he caused a snagtooth to attack Nate's boat. He was an explorer from Four Lakes, which was destroyed when the skytaverns began to arrive, so the Webfoot Goblins search for a new home in the clear water of the Farrow Lake. He discovered a Great Blueshell Clam there and took Cade for a dive, providing him with a mask with fennith, an anchor stone and glade-grass flippers.
Soon, Phineal's fellow Webfoot Goblins from the other lakes arrive with ancient skycrafts, celebrating the finding of another Great Blueshell Clam. The Webfoot Goblins decide to stay at the Farrow Ridges, wanting to live the purer, simpler life of the Second Age of Flight. They founded the Fifth Lake Village at the Farrow Ridges and joined the others in the battle against the Mirepearlers.
