This gunman was a man from Lyra's world who was shot by Lee Scoresby on the 15 April 1962. He worked with Pierre McConville in Novy Odense, working for Larsen Manganese. He hid in the upper floor of the warehouse where the cargo for the Mary Alice was being stored, behind some machinery and under some tarpaulin. His shoulder was exposed to Lee, who promptly shot him before moving over to him to get a better view of Pierre. The gunman soon grabbed Lee's dæmon, Hester, despite the taboo and proceeded to strangle the pair. Lee then shot the gunman, making his cat-dæmon vanish into Dust.
