Hornfels, Super Paper Mario

Hornfels is the Cragnon boomer of Flint Cragley, Cragtrotter. He is partners with Monzo and is one of Flint Cragley's crew. He appears in the Floro Caverns of Super Paper Mario and goes wherever Flint tells him to go. His name is derived from "hornfels," a type of rock.

Princess Peach and Pixls meet Hornfels in Floro Caverns

During the game, Hornfels gets lost in the Floro Caverns (as does Monzo) and Mario, Princess Peach, Bowser and the Pixls find him and tell him where Flint Cragley is. After that, Flint blames Hornfels (and then Monzo) for losing the key that let them go deeper in the Floro Caverns. As it turns out, Flint had the key in his pockets (which might be a reference to Beldam blaming Vivian for losing Mario's sketch and the Superbombomb in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door). After that, Hornfels follows Flint everywhere.
