Speaker for the Dead
Rooter was always there whenever Pipo Figueira visited their forest clearing, and did his best to answer the questions Pipo was forbidden by law to come right out and ask. Pipo always had to beware of the traps that Rooter set for him. Rooter showed to the Wives how very smart he was, and in honor of his brilliance, he was taken to the Third Life and had many children. His Fathertree stood near the gate of the fence surrounding Milagre, later accompanied by his son, Human's tree.
