Ivan Anwhistle gave Lemony Snicket a lachrymose leech paperweight shaped like an "S" for a graduation present. However, this could have been Isaac Anwhistle. More is unknown about him. However, there is a plausible theory that explains who he is (see theory below).[source needed]

Likely Theory

It can be implied that Ivan is the father of Gregor, Isaac, and H (probably Hector) Anwhistle, because their father is never mentioned and Ivan is the only other Anwhistle we know (besides Josephine, who is just the wife of Isaac). Therefore, Ivan is the uncle of Lemony Snicket. If this is true, then he must be the husband of D. Snicket, who is thought to be the girl with the unibrow that Ishmael mentions in The End.
