Role in the Series
Slickwell appeared at the Enchancia castle for the Kingdom's Jubilee with King Magnus. He gave Baileywick a serpent pin as a " token of admiration" and wishes him luck before muttering "You're going to need it." later on revealing that the pin is a cursed artifact and that he wants Baileywick's job. After Baileywick has become clumsy, Slickwell urges him to retire but Princess Sofia defends him and becomes his junior steward. When Sofia's aid for Baileywick becomes a threat to his plan, he interfers and causes another mishap. Baileywick finally gives in and resigns allowing Slickwell to step in. Slickwell's downfall comes when Sofia goes after Baileywick: Unbeknownst to Slickwell, Baileywick gave the pin to Sofia causing her and then Clover to have clumsiness attacks that enable Sofia to figure out that the pin was making Baileywick clumsy and goes off to confront Slickwell. When they get to the kitchen, the pin's curse causes Sofia to fall and knock Slickwell's bag off the table and revealing a book that has a picture of the pin on the front cover. The book turns out to be The Beginner's Guide to Magically Cursed Objects, a book about cursed artifacts. Reading it Sofia and Clover learn that the pin is the Pin of Klutzenhimer, a cursed artifact that puts a clumsiness curse on anyone who even touches it. Putting two and two together, Sofia realizes that Slickwell knew the pin was what was making Baileywick and that he gave it to Baileywick on purpose to steal his job. Furious, Sofia tells Clover to make sure Slickwell doesn't get away with it while she tells Baileywick what really made him clumsy, which makes him very angry and they go back to confront him. Meanwhile, also unbeknownst to Slickwell, Clover finds him and puts the pin on his butt to give him "a taste of his own medicine" which causes him to have clumsiness attacks that end up endangering everyone aboard the Royal Schooner. Baileywick and Sofia come back and save them with help from Cedric and his college Graylock the Grand. Once everyone is safe, Slickwell offers to clean up the mess he caused but Sofia, who now hates him because of her discoveries, steps forward stating "No allow me-to tell everyone what you did." and tells everyone about the pin and Slickwell's wrongdoings. Realizing what made him clumsy, Slickwell searches his person for the Pin and finds it just in time to prove Sofia correct. Everyone is furious with him. He tries to offer an explaination but Roland angrily cuts him off stating "I think we've seen all we need to see." and tells Slickwell his services are no longer required. Slickwell protests that he can't fire him because he works for King Magnus. This prompts King Magnus to step forward and state "Not anymore you don't, Slickwell." and knocks him to the ground. Slickwell tries to get him to change his mind but his plea is cut short by the Pin's curse and the Royal Guard's who take him to the castle gates and throw him out, where he vows to return.
