sometime after Violet and before Klaus (same time as his siblings)
(possibly) in The End
Violet Baudelaire (possibly)
- "Of course I'm going to help you!"
- —Quigley Quagmire
Quigley Quagmire is one of the Quagmire triplets, along with Isadora and Duncan Quagmire, and one of the heirs to the Quagmire Sapphires. Like his siblings, Quigley has an interest in a form of study, in his case cartography, and it is known that he is on the fire-fighting side of the V.F.D. schism. He has a romantic interest in Violet Baudelaire.
During the fire that burned the Quagmire Mansion down, his mother hid him underneath a trapdoor to protect him. She had told him to wait there while she got his siblings, but she hadn't ever returned. He was under there for a few hours, until he found that it was a tunnel that took him to Dr. Montgomery Montgomery's house. The house was empty, so the Baudelaires had already left and Dr. Montgomery was already dead. This also implies that the Quagmire house burned down after the Baudelaire mansion. Then, Jacques Snicket, part of the fire-fighting side of V.F.D., arrived and shared many facts about V.F.D. with Quigley.
But soon afterwards, Jacques left for Paltryville, in search for the Baudelaire orphans. Quigley would read hundreds of books within Dr. Montgomery's mansion, until he saw that his siblings had been kidnapped, and he saw that someone had thrown a torch into the mansion, thus making it so he had to run as the entire mansion burst into flames.
Quigley had gone to Paltryville to try and find Jacques to see if he could help him rescue his siblings, only to discover that Jacques had already come and gone. He found several notes that Jacques had left behind, and that was when he decided it would be best to try and find V.F.D.'s headquarters instead.
The Slippery Slope
Quigley was presumed to be deceased until Violet and Klaus Baudelaire met him in a cave, where he had been resting with the Snow Scouts, on their way up the mountains. Quigley hints that he can be trusted by the Baudelaires through a series of VFD-initialed words he says to them. When the snow scouts are asleep, he shows and accompanies Violet and Klaus up an escape passage in the cave known as a vertical flame diversion. The friends finally arrive at the old VFD headquarters, only to discover that the headquarters are burned to the ground. Violet resolves to journey up the mountain to rescue Sunny, and Quigley volunteers to go with her.
He and Violet clearly have some romantic interest in each other, as it was implied at a point when they decided to take a rest, and many believe that they kissed.
He survived, as he sent a Volunteer Factual Dispatch to the Queequeg, with knowledge that the Baudelaires' were aboard and that they were in desperate need of their assistance, and a hidden message was within the telegram as well.
Quigley met with Kit Snicket and they were planning to meet up with the three children, but he received word from his other two siblings that they were being attacked in the sky by V.F.D. eagles. Kit and Quigley stole a helicopter from a nearby botanist to help them and Hector. Only Quigley went on the helicopter, as Kit had to help the Baudelaires. Quigley constructed a huge net to defend their self-sustaining hot air mobile home.
He did manage to meet up with his siblings on the mobile home, but the eagles took out the balloons holding them up. Everyone inside the mobile home was sent toppling downwards, destroying the Queequeg directly below them. Duncan, Isadora, Kit Snicket, Captain Widdershins, Fiona, Phil, Fernald, Hector, Ink, and Quigley were all left stranded in the water, before the large question-mark shaped object, the Great Unknown, appeared below them. Kit and Ink managed to escape, while everyone else was pulled under, and the Quagmires are "in circumstances just as dark ... as the Baudelaires'", We are not sure if they are safe or not. One of the three Quagmire Siblings, as stated by Kit, called Violet's name as the Great Unknown reached them. This was most likely Quigley.
It is possible that Quigley is deceased, but this is unclear since no one knows what happens when the Great Unknown swallows someone.
In the TV series, Quigley is portrayed by Dylan Kingwell, who is also Duncan.

- ↑ in Why is This Night Different From All Other Nights? Lemony pushes Hangfire to his death at the hands of the Bombinating Beast, also known as The Great Unknown, so it is likely that Quigley faced his death at the hands of the same creature.
