Sloop is a wizard at the Wizards' Tower and formerly the apprentice of Joss. He fell in love with Primrose, Joss's daughter, who shared his interest in books. As Joss's apprentice, he came round to their house in north-western Piscatoris often, but when Joss fled due to accusations of plagiarism, Sloop lost his reason for visiting Primrose. Instead, they began exchanging notes in books, which he bought off Megan, Primrose's mother. When she went to sell him The Adventures of Hannibus, she discovered the note Primrose had written, causing her to return home and burn every book.

Mum wouldn't let him in. My love. My Sloop. So he got work at the Wizard's Tower, and passed notes in the books that mum sold to him. But even that's gone now. I know that Sloop won't give up on me. I know he will come for me."

She begged to be saved...I stopped the cart, and turned around. My head thrummed with rage...Finally, the fury rested on the books. When I returned home, I threw them all into the fireplace."
