About Him

Living… in Magrathea. During its heyday, the planet was the wealthiest in the galaxy. Aiming its services at the richest of the rich, Magrathea manufactured other planets for the universe’s billionaires, outstripping the economies of every other world. 

Profession... designer of planets. Slartibartfast plans out coastlines, oversees the production of oceans, checks up on the development of new mountains. Hey, building a new world is no easy task.

Interests… fjords. Slartibartfast’s specialty is fjord construction. He is quite proud of his skill: “Ever heard of a place, I think it’s called Norway? That was one of mine. I got an award for it.”

Challenge… creating Earth Mark II. After the destruction of the first, Slartibartfast and the other Magratheans must start from scratch. He’s been assigned, however, to work on Africa. Looks like those fjord-making skills will have to be put to the side for now.

Personality… eccentric. Everything about Slartibartfast – from his name to his occupation – is a little bit strange. Not that he questions any of it. Slartibartfast deals with the chaos of life by saying “hang the sense of it” and keeping himself occupied. After all, it’s better to “be happy than right any day.”
