The Podling Caretaker was a male Podling who lived during the late Age of Division.

Like his father and grandfather before him, he maintained, cleaned and attended to Aughra's observatory during her astral projection into the stars. The Caretaker lived in a set of rooms just off to the side of the observatory itself, where he had his simple meals. He seemed to have a regular routine, which included the consumption of an oatmeal-like porridge for breakfast, combing his hair and then messing it up again and neatly putting on his shoes.[1]

When Aughra awoke, she mistook him for his grandfather. Despite this long absence, the Caretaker seemed competent enough to know where Aughra's scrolls and records were kept, and prepared some food for her, though she was far too distracted to eat.[1] Later, the Caretaker left the observatory to enjoy a few drinks at the Podling village, presumably having been relieved of duty, where Rian hid until found by four other Gelfling.[2]
