This man had a dæmon in the form of a mastiff. During the flood of 1986, he arrived at Lord Murdstone's house and fought to become its inhabitant. He was standing outside the house when Malcolm Polstead, Alice Parslow and Lyra Belacqua arrived there and was notably drunk at the time. He had a shotgun with him. Malcolm warned the man of Gerard Bonneville, who was chasing him, Alice and Lyra. Despite this warning, the man was killed by Bonneville and so, lying dead in the water, was carried away by the flood.
The man had a notably sour face and wore rough clothes.
