Because he needed one. Cantus is, without QUESTION, my favorite secondary fraggle character. Not only was he performed by my favorite muppeteer (RIP JIM HENSON!!!), but he also performed my all-time favorite Fraggle song: Let me be your song. He's like a guru to the fraggles: a being that has traveled farther and learned more than any other creature, and who is willing to dispense his wisdom to those who will listen. What are your thoughts on Cantus, and for that matter, the rest of the minstrels?
