Speculation

Cubbins is a Hatmancer in the service of Jetstone, not currently under the command of Ossomer, unlike the other casters of Jetstone, likely in the capital.

Real World References

Cubbins is a reference to Bartholomew Cubbins, a character of Dr Seuss's creation. The character met his king, and removed his hat in respect. Another one appeared on his head. The king, mindful of this disrespect, tried to have his hat removed, and eventually, tried to execute him. The executioner couldn't kill him as it was a rule you had to remove your hat. He kept removing them, new ones appearing on his head. After the 451st one, they started to become more beautiful and guilded, till he reached the 500th one. It was so beautiful that the king merely bought his hat for 500 gold rather than murdering him by throwing him off a tall tower.
