History[edit | edit source]
The hull of the skyship Weatherlight was formed from a Weatherseed that Maro-Sorcerer Molimo (the avatar of the Llanowar forest) gave to Jhoira, and thus it contains part of the soul of the forest. In Jhoira's restoration of the skyship, some spark of life took root in the wood and eventually grew into Slimefoot. This thallid is something like a mascot and a deck swab, tending a herd of saproling that help keep the ship clean. Slimefootis apparently harmless, somewhat adorable, and evidently useful, so Jhoira and the rest of the crew tolerate the thallid's presence.
Somewhere between a mascot and a deck swab, Slimefoot tends a small herd of saprolings that help keep the ship clean. Passengers are warned to keep out of Slimefoot's way, but the grumpy fungoid is easily plied with food.
At the time of the Weatherlight attack on Belzenlok's Stronghold Slimefoot played a pivotal role by procuring the help of Muldrotha, Urborg's elemental avatar, and steering the skyship during the attack by Yargle.
