Rimsky is the financial director of the Variety theater. He tries to find out where Styopa has gone but nearly meets a terrible end when Hella and Varenukha, now a vampire, try to attack him in his office. He is saved by the crowing of a cockerel, signaling the dawn and the necessary escape of the undead Hella and Varenukha. Rimsky subsequently flees Moscow for Leningrad, seemingly having aged by decades.
