|Affiliations||Lamplighters of the Conduit Vermis |
|Occupations||Commander of Winstermill|
Master-of-Clerks, later Marshal-Subrogat Podious Whympre (pronounced Po ' dee'us Wim ' per) served as the senior bureaucrat and second in command at Winstermill until he assumed command following the departure of the Lamplighter-Marshal. Whympre's maneuvering and scheming, while gaining for him command of the Conduit Vermis, proved to be disastrous and short-lived. His lack of military experience and underestimation of the precarious military situation facing the Wormway exacerbated the shortages caused by trained military personnel and his alliance with Honorius Ludius Grotius Swill led to his death and cutting off of the Conduit Vermis as a result of the Battle of Winstermill.
