After capturing Tintin in England, Puschov tries to convince Tintin to jump off a cliff, but Tintin is rescued by his dog, Snowy, by Snowy biting the goat's leg. He is both a cunning and deceptive figure, tricking Tintin and the authorities on several occasions. He is also the master of Ranko, a gorilla inhabiting the gang's hideout on the Black Island whose nightly screams inspired local legends of the island being occupied by some form of monster.
