Cringle is a young male hedgehog from Mistmantle Island, whose older brother is Quill. He appears in The Heir of Mistmantle when the young are evacuated to the Old Palace to avoid catching Fouldrought. Cringle is hit by Hope when he tries to tell the other children Husk is alive, and spreads rumors that the Queen is responsible for the Fouldrought. Crispin visited him shortly after, and told him that the disease is under control and it isn't Cedar's fault, and that Husk is dead.
