He has appeared in most games of the series as the manager and curator of the village museum. His character design seems to take inspiration from a British college professor, from his green bowtie, to the pattern of his feathers, to some of the Britishisms he speaks with.
While he's polite and friendly to a fault, it's a running gag of the series that he hates bugs. He'll accept bug donations for the museum, and he'll even educate the player on bug facts. But he does these things under dramatic duress.
Has a red-colored sister named Celeste.
