Percy's cat. Footnote comes aboard The Spotted Custard along with Percy, becoming the ship's resident cat.

Appearance Edit

Footnote is a tuxedo cat, mostly black with white markings, as if dressed for the theater. He has white stomach markings up to his throat, white spats, long white whiskers, and a white tail tip.

Trivia Edit

  • Gail has admitted that she based Footnote on her own cat, Lilliput, also a tuxedo. Although Lilliput is female, smaller, and doesn't have a white tail tip.
  • Footnote helps seal negotiations with the Drifters in Imprudence, because cats are seen as the living soul of the ship.
