The Rose-Beetle Man is a strange local fixture in Corfu. He dresses eccentrically and never speaks, though he plays the flute and sings in a strange, nasal voice. He sells a variety of animals as pets including rose beetles, doves, tortoises, and chickens. Gerry purchases both Achilles and Quasimodo from him.
