It's time we mounted a vigorous fire defence.
— Mr. Quagmire

Mr. Quagmire is the father of the triplets Duncan, Isadora, and Quigley. He is married to Mrs. Quagmire.


He perished in the fire that destroyed the Quagmire Mansion. He owned many sapphires before his death, which made him quite rich. These sapphires would be inherited by his children. Not much else is known about him.

Mr. Quagmire is thought to have been a member of the fire-extinguishing side of V.F.D., as was confirmed by Jacques Snicket to Quigley.

TV series

He is portrayed by Will Arnett in the TV series. He is presented in such a way as to fool the audience into thinking he is Bertrand Baudelaire in the first season's subplot. He later dies during a mysterious house fire started by a mysterious woman theorized to be Esmé Squalor.
