"Made yourself a Sawmill now, huh? Look at you go! Good thing you can't automate creativity or I'd be out of a job..."

Beetrix is a talented carpenter who lives in Port APICO. They grew up with the player when they were younger, and will comment on the player's progress through various crafting machines as they progress in the game.

Beetrix is also the only NPC that sells a "free" item, as they sell the Workbench for free in-case the player softlocks themselves.

Like most NPCs, Beetrix can be picked up with a link={{{link}}} to be moved to other places.

Trigger Dialogue
Greeting Oh hey {PLAYER.NAME}, how are you today!
Default Dialogue Wow! Look at you {PLAYER.NAME}, it has been quite a few years hasn't it! You're all grown up now!
After crafting a Sawbench Aww, look at you go! We'll make a Carpenter of you yet! If you want to upgrade your machines you should start collecting Lilypads so you can make some Waterproof.
After getting Waterproofing Waterproof is super handy, you can use it to make yourself all sorts of containers to store the Resin you get from Treetaps!

You can even make an Infuser to start treating your wood with that Resin.
After getting Infused Wood Planks With treated wood you can start making clockwork machines! Treated Wooden Sticks and Glue from your bees' Propolis can make some basic cogs to upgrade your Sawbench.
After crafting a Sawmill Made yourself a Sawmill now, huh? Look at you go! Good thing you can't automate creativity or I'd be out of a job...
After crafting all 3 clockwork machines Now you're cooking, look at all those clockwork machines go! You could actually upgrade your machines even more with Honeycore, but we'd need Bobbee for that.

They live out in the heart of the Tundra so you better pack ya warm clothes {PLAYER.NAME}!
After getting a honeycore machine (any) Oh you got yourself a Honeycore machine did you? Isn't it just dreamy! If I had a couple of those I'd never have to work again - maybe I could take up Beekeeping instead eh?
Hivemother's Door opened
Spoilers - Show Dialogue
Oh {PLAYER.NAME} what happened! I saw a bright light and I heard this voice...

The Hivemother? For real?? Oh {PLAYER.NAME} that's incredible, I had always believed but to know it's all true, it's just wonderful. Don't you forget about me when you're all famous!


  • Ell has mentioned that Beetrix is based off of his real life friend.
  • In the credits Beetrix can be seen being taught beekeeping by Barnabee, implying she did indeed get her honeycore machines and retire early
