Spicket:  A warrior raccoon as old as civilization.  Thousands of years ago, when people inhabited Mid Country, Spicket acted as scribe to the lord of humanity.  Today, she is Lee’s closest friend.  Spicket spends much of her time at Lee’s house teaching him about Mid Country and watching daytime television.  Because she is from Mid Country no one else can see or hear her.

The raccoon is just as interested in finding the treasure as Lee is.  Among the fortune are objects that were some of the great wonders of the world when humans populated Mid Country.  Spicket secretly longs for those days and hopes that if they find the treasure she will have a sense of returning home.
