Snarl is a vinegaroon serving aboard the Boschenberg navy frigate Surprise. He is one of Rossamünd Bookchild's former fellow foundlings.


Two years older than Rossamünd Bookchild, Snarl spent his time at Madam Opera's Estimable Marine Society for Foundling Boys and Girls teasing and bullying the children who were smaller than himself. This included Rossamünd, although Gosling Corvinius Arbour remained the latter's deadliest antagonist. Eighteen months before Rossamünd accepted the opportunity to become a lamplighter, Snarl was picked to join the navy and posted to the Surprise, considering himself to have reached the apex of what there is to wish for as a once-rejected foundling.



The Surprise was docked in the Mullhaven, the harbour of High Vesting, when Rossamünd arrived in the city with Europe and Fouracres in HIR 1601. He was given some time to see the rams, during which Snarl noticed him looking around and greeted him. He pointed Rossamünd out to his fellow crewmen, still picking on him while he did so. Snarl looked taller, broader, and stronger than when Rossamünd had last seen him.[2]


His name is a reference to his bullying personality.
