"I could never be a noble person. I have a hump on my back."
—Hugo, The Penultimate Peril

Hugo was a hunchback and was one of the carnival freaks at Caligari Carnival. He had a hunched back which made him look slightly awkward. He was good-natured and always flexible towards the present circumstances. He is grouped with Colette, a "freak" for being a contortionist, and Kevin, a "freak" for being ambidextrous and able to write with both hands.

A Series of Unfortunate Events

He lived with the Baudelaire children for a small period of time in The Carnivorous Carnival and appears to bond with Sunny Baudelaire when they make soup together.[1] He later became one of Count Olaf's henchmen.

After discovering that the Baudelaire siblings weren't actually freaks, he appears specially bitter towards them at The Slippery Slope.

In The Penultimate Peril, which marks his final appearance in the series, he is disguised as a Hotel Denouement worker (pictured right). He has a giant spatula to flip sunbathers over. It is left uncertain if Hugo survived the fire at the Hotel Denouement.

Etymology

His name is a reference to Victor Hugo, author of The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.
