The Blooding of Rufus Filantine was a short story about Rufus Filatine, Xanth's son and the invention that led to the Third Age of Flight.

Editions

It was first published as the fourth barkscroll of The Lost Barkscrolls. In the Jeff Nentrup editions of the Edge Chronicles, The Lost Barkscrolls was no longer included as a standalone book but rather split on multiple books. The Blooding of Rufus Filantine is now at the end of Freeglader, where it fits chronologically.

Plot

It was a story about Rufus Filatine, the son of Xanth Filatine, and his adventures as a Freeglade Lancer. It described how his adventures culminated in a great battle against the Phrax Glade, and how the Phraxfire Globes ultimately inspired Xanth to invent Phraxflight.
