The very brilliant, self-reliant Rebecca Snoot, was always
studying. Daughter of Obediah Snoot IV, she graduated Suey Cum Loudly
in Jam of 1640 GUE as Ms. Mavis Peepers star pupil. Able to pick up
languages "faster than a zorklitz," she continued her
anthropological studies after graduation and wrote books. After
experimenting with illumynite, she filed a patent and copyright
for her Illumynite Nail Polish and Lipstick.
In the 1640s, she
continued to live with her father on his farm. When the curse of
Morphius began to drawn buildings from the surface into the Great
Underground Empire, her home was not spared. In her dreams, the dreaded
evil Morphius continued to introduce itself in her dreams.
always fed her cow carrots so it would see better in the dark.
Once the milk-maker escaped and tore up Witch Itah's vegetable garden,
but only consumed the carrots. Later, the cow came up missing. Unknown
to Rebecca, it somehow came into the possession of Angus Pugney, a
nearby neighbor, who tended it as his own.
Morphius' minions could be anywhere, as the days grew more evil,
Rebecca decided that she needed to quiz all strangers to determine
whether or not they were on her side. By using selected trivia from
Zorkian history, she was somehow able to quickly tell if the suspect
meant her good or ill-fortune.
In 1647, the Sweepstakes Winner,
was one of these who were tested. Having stealthy entered the Snoot
house by slipping through an open window, the anthropologist was
encountered in the bathroom. With a single punch, she knocked the
intruder unconscious. After changing her clothing, she kept the human at
gunpoint until the consciousness returned. From there she proceeded to
ask the intruder her question. Once it was correctly answered, she was
befriended and granted permission that anything within the house could
be taken. Rebecca continued to aid this adventurer by gathering
information and even translating one of four jokes, which would be
essential in the recovery of the six pieces of the last
Flying Disc of Frobozz.
While that nameless Sweepstakes Winner
raided the Citadel of Zork, Rebecca was captured, turned to stone, and
set on display in Morphius' research laboratory. Upon his defeat,
Rebecca was freed from her stone prison. Having developed romantic
interest for one another during the course of their explorations, the
Sweepstakes Winner and Rebecca Snoot became a couple following the
conclusion of these events; it is unknown if their relationship ever
consummated in marriage.
During the 1640s,
Rebecca was in the process of authoring a book called
"Zork: The Return of Evil," which when released after 1647, was a
companion book to "The Rise and Fall of Zork." Her book was on sale for
a mere two zorkmids. In this book, she went to great lengths to prove
that Belboz, far from being either a drooling idiot or a vegetable, was
in fact still in full possession of his faculties by 966, and
furthermore that he played a crucial role in the building of a
sculpture garden to the six Ancient Muses of the Arts.
