Not to be confused with the Campaign Three gnome Chetney Pock O'Pea.

Chutney Chocolatecane is a Christmas elf Rogue played by Travis Willingham for "The Night Before Critmas" (Sx41).


Not only the senior workshop elf, but also one of the oldest elves in the North Pole. As knowledgeable as you are cantankerous, you miss the halcyon days of yore, when toys were made by hand and built exclusively from wood and metal and came with an inherent physical danger or choking hazard. Lawn darts? Those were your idea.


Chutney started off seeming like a loyal elf to Santa, but as soon as Saint Nick got kidnapped by the Hallow King, he changed his tune, putting forth the idea of leaving Santa to die and taking over the North Pole. He was quite frustrated by the tasks Santa was giving him, complaining about nobody wanting a wooden Voltron, that he can't wire a Gameboy, and how the hair didn't move on a troll doll he made.



Chutney is one of the oldest elves working for Saint Nick. His expertise is in wooden toys, but times (and children) have changed and he has been under pressure to produce less traditional playthings. For a long time, he tolerated this burden but was secretly nursing a growing grudge against Santa.

"The Night Before Critmas" (Sx41)[]

When the group of Christmas elves reached the unconscious Santa on their rescue mission, an opportunity arose for Chutney. He stabbed St Nick in the chest to end what he thought to be his oppressive rule. However, Santa survived, while Chutney was kidnapped by the Hallow King and vanished into the darkness.
