Wormchester Ashton Tongues

Wormchester A. Tongues, AKA Wormtongue, is a Salamander-Caecilian Hybrid from the world of Amphibia. He is the self-proclaimed father of modern dark arts in Amphibia who seeks all the magic on the island so he can take it over. He used to be the assistant of Bracket, a legendary magic user of Amphibian history and curator of its magic. Since the Amphibians and the world they're in are a part of The Bestiary Dimension, the same home dimension of the monsters of Mewni, which are so far in the outer rims that it cannot be affected by King Echidian's curse which very few know about, it's Bracket's sworn duty to keep history from repeating itself by using the magic for good. But Wormtongue was taken in as an orphan and a friend alongside the newt elder Valeriana, all because his hybrid heritage between a newt and a caecilian (A rare worm-like amphibian commonly found in caves), earned him mockery and scorn, especially for looking like an armed snake, and even being shunned everywhere he went because of his criminal upbringing, which urged him to long for a purpose. This lead to him persuading Bracket to help aim in creating an artificial Resurrectorate as a means to 'bring stronger magic'. But when Bracket received a prophetic dream about the consequences of such a pursuit, he called the entire project off, upsetting Wormtongue as Bracket absconded with the very Artificial Ressor, Helixis, even when the dream said that Bestiaran aggression and magic are what got the dimension destroyed in the first place. Wormtongue refused to believe the visions, not just out of skepticism to the prophetic abilities of dreams cause he argued that he once had a nightmare about being eaten by a long dead rogue giant crane and ergo he considered that bracket had to be "a very specific nightmare", which indicates he has a sense of "Seeing is believing" that unless he saw it himself, it isn't to be taken seriously, but because he hoped the purpose of Helixis would give him the respect he wanted his entire life, deciding to force the issue. When Bracket hid the Helixis away, and following the fact that Wormtongue resurrected a previously slain enemy out of immature spite, he punished Wormtongue for his acts by cursing him into being more snake-like, obtaining a cobra hood and poisonous fangs, seeing him now as a 'treacherous snake'. Angered by this curse, Wormtongue swore to find the Helixis and bring forth stronger magic in Amphibia to get the respect he was denied. He lives in a lowly hut in a swamp somewhere, where he grows the ancient thriving species of manaberries (berries of mana that acted as edible potions and spells but became extinct in the wild and are now cultivated by magic users). Bracket sealed Helixis away using the Calamity Box's Gem of Heart, albeit just a lesser power of it as the full power was in the temple, making the seal only strong enough to not be undone by normal magic (A feat already made hard by magic being weaker in the Bestarian Dimension anyway), but when Wormtongue intended to steal the power of all three gems to release her, nearly causing mayhem in the process, Bracket erased his memories of him even being the Guardian of one of the Temples of Strength. Bracket had originally aimed to further increased the seal by the time he got with Anne and company, but eventually personal guilt caused by a good argument from an interloper and his own feelings for Helixis as a sort've outer god daughter and personal shame of making her suffer ever-ending sleep to avoid something he otherwise still took seriously drove him to not see the plan through, leaving Bracket stuck with excess heart power and no ability to use it otherwise since he was not the intended occupant of it. His hybrid morphology gives him salamander arms as a result of the faulty metamorphosis, but since he was cursed, he became more snake-like and has developed an "aggressive merciless" mind, but really alot of his attitude is just because he's a grouchy jerk with terrible social skills (Which is albeit amplified by being partial snake now)
