Saphhronetta "Saffy" Flivvers is a gnome who worked for the Explorer's League and was sent to study Azerite in Silithus shortly after the Argus Campaign until she was kidnapped when Horde forces attacked her camp. Before coming to Silithus, she was a consultant member at the Hall of Explorers.[1]


Before the Storm

Saphhronetta was previously married to Grizzek Fizzwrench when she was young. They were lab partners that were stupid enough to fall in love with each other. After the first month, their relationship began to fall apart because everything one of them did seemed to irritate the other. After she divorced Grizzek, she joined the Explorer's League.[2] She claimed that the robotic parrot Feathers was hers, but in fact they made it together as a first (and last) anniversary gift to each other.[3]

Saphhronetta was sent by Brann Bronzebeard and Anduin on an expedition to Silithus, led by Gavvin Stoutarm, alongside three other dwarves from Explorer's League and a small handful night elf Sentinels, including Sentinel Cordressa Briarbow.

She befriended Cordressa the night they arrived in Silithus, talking about the moons, the Blue Child and the White Lady. After they ate dinner, two Sentinels, including Cordressa, left to scout out the Horde forces in the area, while the rest of the team went to sleep.

In the middle of the night, she awoke to the sound of goblin bellowing, the crack of rifles, and the clang of steel against steel. She saw two dead sentinels and a third body she did not inspect for fear her panic would overcome her mind. She defended herself by grabbing the pistol she hid under her pillow and pointed at a shape blocking out the horizon stars. She shot her pistol twice, missing both times, and angered the goblin Kezzig Klackwhistle. Kezzig's companion pointed out that she fit a description given to all goblin forces by Gallywix and began to kidnap her. She fought back by biting Kezzig and was subsequently punched in the face and knocked out.[1]

When she awoke, she was on a wyvern heading towards Tanaris. She was reunited with her ex-husband Grizzek, to whom she despised. She was against anything to do with him until Grizzek put a piece of Azerite into her palm and its effects opened her mind to the possibilities the two can do with it.[3]

As the weeks went by, Saffy and Grizzek worked on making new Azerite inventions for Gallywix, such as armor and building material. As the two worked together, they began to rekindle their relationship. Eventually, they were notified that they were now ordered to create only weapons.[2]

Upon hearing this news, they were devastated because they did not want to create things that caused harm unto others. They created a plan were they would set up a bomb in their lab and secretly escape through a tunnel that opened up in a random part of Tanaris. Prior to leaving, Grezzik proposed once more to Sapphronetta and she accepted. When they exited the tunnel, they were captured and tied up back-to-back by Druz, Kezzik, and their goons; who had also taken their notes. Druz informed them that they knew of their plan ahead of time and had taken all their inventions and had already disarmed his bomb in the lab. Kezzik then put a bomb between them and left with Druz and the goons.

The newly engaged couple were able to get the bomb to fall to the ground between them, but when they attempted to flee, their small, tied up legs could only get them so far. As they continued to waddle their way to safety, Grezzik lamented Gallywix will exploit their work to hurt others after all. Saffy however, confessed that he won't since she had already destroyed their notes. Thus Gallywix would be unable to recreate their experiments and would be left with only a few prototypes and mixed potions. They hoped they were far enough away to survive the explosion. As Grezzik was in the process of saying "I love you" to Sapphronetta, the bomb went off.[4]

The two survived the explosion and made their way to Kul Tiras. During a Horde incursion into Tiragarde Sound they could be found in hiding at Greystone Keep, and provided the  [Grizzek Rocket Hop] to aid an Alliance adventurer in fighting the Horde off.[5]

Notes and trivia

  • Grizzek's nicknames for her were Punkin and Pookie.
  • She owned Lightning Blast 3000.
  • Grizzek and Sapphronetta's appearances in Tiragarde Sound leaves them unnamed, referring to them as simply "Unidentified Goblin" and "Unidentified Gnome", but their identities are clear from the name of the  [Grizzek Rocket Hop] and from Grizzek referring to Sapphronetta as "pumpkin".
