Sprinkle is a crimson weasel pet of Jester Lavorre. As an NPC, Sprinkle is played by Matthew Mercer.

Description Edit

Appearance Edit

Sprinkle is a small, red-furred weasel.

Personality Edit

The Mighty Nein's dangerous adventures across many varied environments have hardened Sprinkle, making him twitchy and paranoid. As Jester knows very little about weasels and often forgets that Sprinkle is even on her person, Sprinkle is also sleep-deprived and emaciated, making him aggressive towards his owner.

Biography Edit

Background Edit

Prior to Jester's ownership, Sprinkle was owned by travelling pet salesman Kestiff Drudy.

Notable AppearancesEdit

"Beyond the Boundaries" (2x32) The Mighty Nein passed a pet salesman on the road between Zadash and Nicodranas. Beau and Jester split the cost of a blink puppy they named Nugget. Jester bought Sprinkle on her own.[2]

"The Second Seal" (2x47)Edit

During down time as the Ball-Eater traveled from the Gravid Archipelago to Nicodranas, Jester taught Sprinkle to fetch small items for her.[3]

"Domestic Respite" (2x62)Edit

Jester decided to make a weasel nest for Sprinkle in the tree on top of their tower and then forced him into it against his will. He was last seen, clearly very unhappy, hissing at her.[4]

Relationships Edit

Jester Lavorre Edit

Jester is Sprinkle's owner. He rides on her shoulders, hiding in her hood in dangerous circumstances.

Yasha Nydoorin Edit

After returning to the Xhorhaus from their encounter with Isharnai, Yasha gave Sprinkle a bath. He hated this experience.[citation needed]

Caduceus ClayEdit

Sprinkle is assumed to trust Caduceus, as seen when Sprinkle accepted a sandwich Caduceus gave him, despite being in a irritable mood due to Yasha giving him a bath. This trust may be due to Caduceus being able to communicate with animals.[citation needed]

Oremid HassEdit

Oremid Hass has a fondness for animals and Sprinkle is no exception. He loves to hold and pet both Frumpkin and Sprinkle. Oremid is very knowledgeable about how to take care of animals and has given advice to Jester on at least one occasion.[citation needed]

    Laura: "I knock on the door and say-" (as Jester) "It's a weasel!"[5]

Trivia Edit

  • Sprinkle is named after one of Jester's favorite foods: doughnuts.
  • There is a running joke among the community that states Sprinkle is traumatized because Laura frequently forgets that Sprinkle is in Jester's shirt. This has led Jester to take Sprinkle along for many extremely dangerous encounters.
    • CritRoleStats has calculated that Sprinkle has survived 9 circumstances under which he would normally have died as of episode 56 of campaign 2.[6]
    • It is a further running joke among the players that Sprinkle has actually already died and is some form of undead.
    • Many of the cast like to voice Sprinkle's internal thoughts, especially Travis, and have joked about Sprinkle begging for help and crying about Jester neglecting him.
