Bruce Spats (possibly)
Carmelita Spats (niece)
- "The name's Bruce, but you can call me Uncle Bruce, although I'm almost certainly not your real uncle. Welcome to the Snow Scouts, travelers, where all of us are meek. In fact, we're accommodating, basic, calm..."
- —Bruce, The Slippery Slope
As Director of Marketing for the Herpetological Society, Bruce took custody of Montgomery Montgomery's reptiles after his death, later losing all but the Incredibly Deadly Viper to Count Olaf. Quigley Quagmire said Bruce was much trouble to V.F.D., because of this.
Bruce later became the leader of the Snow Scouts and made up a ridiculous pledge. When the Snow Scouts made it up to the top of Mount Fraught, they were tricked by the villains into reciting the Snow Scout pledge, causing Bruce, the Scouts (except Carmelita Spats, his niece), and some of Olaf's henchmen to be caught in a net. They were then taken way by the V.F.D. eagles. His fate thereafter is unknown.
- Due to Carmelita Spats being his niece, his surname may also be Spats.
- Daniel Handler is fond of Bruce. He claimed that Bruce won't be in the TV series.(15:00)
