Pinetooth was a Captain serving under Squirrelking Araltum and Idga Drayqueen. He was an old and experienced warrior, and a good friend of Rakkety Tam MacBurl and Wild Doogy Plumm. He was among the parade that was ambushed by Gulo the Savage and his horde of white vermin. Along with Driltig and the King himself, he was one of the three survivors. Pinetooth was liberated from the squirrel rulers' oppression later on by Rakkety Tam and Sister Armel. At this deposition, he gave Crown Prince Roopert, Araltum and Idga's son, a good kick on his fat behind, something the old squirrel had wanted to do for a long time.
