He was able to defeat her later in the book when he sprays her with a hose and washes her out of the basement. He seems sarcastic and annoying to others, but also adventurous and ready to stand up for himself. He eventually caught Poppy's heart. He dies in the second book, Poppy, when an owl named Mr. Ocax catches and eats him.
