Mr Winvoe is a very seriously minded Assassin, who looks after the financial administration of the Assassins' Guild. The Guild Treasurer is therefore a man of great responsibilities and carries a great weight upon his shoulders since the other assassins are not going to tolerate mistakes. He is a member of the Dark Council by default and is first mentioned in 'Hogfather'. His brief appearance suggests that he has a lot in common, professionally and personally, with the Bursar at Unseen University, although in Lord Downey he has has a far more understanding superior who has not yet driven him in the direction of the Dried Frog Pills.

Interestingly, on Esoteric Street, there is a firm of accountants called Winvoe and Prood, at the sign of the Crossed Quills, who is perhaps a relative.
