Tarquin is the operator of the Sargaseous Sea lighthouse. He's been alone at that job longer than he can remember, which is apparently a short time as he can't remember how long he's been microwaving his soup either. He once found a whole Blue Man Group when salvaging one of the many craft that wrecked in the thick fog around his light house. He ate them. He owns a bathosphere which he operates off of a craft called the "Flotsam and Jetsam" and is fond of "one eye corpse screams", which he sees regularly during his secondary job of salvaging the shipwrecks of the ships that didn't see his lighthouse He is a deeply religious alien, passing the time by reading biblical passages to inanimate objects within the lighthouse.
