Puny Sploor was the single Embassy servant[1] that was allowed the Ambassador of Nightmaria to Farrog, Ophal D'Neeth Flatroq. Puny was described as having "rheumy eyes", skinny arms, small weak hands and, in general, a physique that could well have inspired his first name. Although not specifically mentioned, Puny was most probably a subject of Nightmaria.[2]

In The Fiends of NightmariaEdit

Being the only servitor at the Nightmaria Embassy, Puny had to fill multiple roles that would normally have been assigned to multiple people: groundskeeper; stabler/ostler; sentry; personal servant to the Ambassador; and so on and so forth.[3] Puny had a somewhat rocky relationship with the only other habitue of the Embassy, Beetle Praata, the Imperial Courier who travelled between Nightmaria and Farrog carrying news and messages.[4] Of necessity, Puny was close to the Ambassador and, as his body servant/valet, Puny was allowed a certain degree of familiarity and even mild impertinence. It was mainly because of Puny's high tolerance of a number of Ophal D'Neeth Flatroq's more disturbing personal habits that the Ambassador continued to keep Puny on as, essentially, the Embassy's general factotum.[5]
