The DYNNE in the book

The Awful Dynne is Dr. Kakophonus Asloudaspossible Discord's assistant.


He is like a genie made of bluish colored smoke. He has big white eyes and though you cant really see his appearance as he is made of smoke but you can make out its mouth.


He is very fond of loud noises and is a cross between a dynne and a din. He has a very loud voice and calls the doctor "master". He drinks the sound potions (icky-looking drinks in amber bottles that make you make noises) he likes to pun on the phrase "no news is good news", saying "no nurse is good nurse", "no niece is good niece" and "no nose is good nose" because he has no family (aside from his grandfather the Terrible Raouw who died in the Silence Epidemic.), no nose and he never had a nurse. However when the Humbug said "No noise is good noise", the Dynne said "THAT'S NOT FUNNY AT ALL!" and went into a sulk. This is where the sound makes sound dand who ever moke sounds never hear them uless you could see them by the DYNNE.
