- “I wonder who Bootler is. ... Ugh.. Oh, no... No-------!! This is from that ghost! It says, "I'll creep up on you while you're sleeping... Boo! He loves scaring me! You think... he'll really... creeping... darkness... Oh, woe is me! I'll never sleep! ... Get a hold of yourself, Fice T.! Stand tall! I'll be OK.”
- —Fice T., Paper Mario
Fice T. is the nervous and neurotic guard of Forever Forest in Paper Mario. His name is a pun on the word "feisty", but his personality is the exact opposite of feisty. He is petrified of ghosts, making him very inept for his guard position of Forever Forest. The robe he wears and the spots on his cap are indigo, and he carries a spear. He insists to Mario that he saw a ghost and is too terrified to do his job and enter the forest to find out where the ghost is coming from.
Eventually, Mario goes into Forever Forest to find that the ghost was a Boo named Bootler, the servant of Lady Bow at Boo's Mansion. A letter addressed to Fice T. from Bootler, which is found in Gusty Gulch, says that the former will continue scaring the latter; nevertheless, delivering the letter with Parakarry rewards Mario with a Star Piece.
If Mario talks to Fice T. with Bow as his active partner, Fice T. will get scared, start shaking, and tell Mario that there is a ghost behind him.
- "This Toad guards the path to the Forever Forest. He looks timid... Isn't that a bad trait in a guard? Not only does he scare easily, I hear that he's especially afraid of ghosts. Seeing as Forever Forest is supposedly haunted, he must be completely freaked out."
- Toad Town News gets the information that Mario has entered Forever Forest from Fice T. according to one of the news posts.
- Fice T. is never referred to by a name in the Japanese version of the game, only ever being described as the Forever Forest entrance's guard.
