Brittle Hollow

Root was a Nomai scientist who worked in the Black Hole Forge along with Clary and Poke to create the warp cores that power the various warps throughout the Solar System, including the towers on Ash Twin.[1]

Root was the one who proposed building the towers to connect Ash Twin to each location that was critical to the Ash Twin Project[1] He installed the warp cores and delivered them, but initially had difficulty figuring out where each one was supposed to go.[2][3] He also tested Timber Hearth ore in Hollow's Lantern to see which one survived the longest in direct heat to seal off the Ash Twin Project.[4]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Root is named after plant roots, which serve to anchor the plant as well as provide water and nutrients.
