The Butcher is a character who appears in "Songs of the Dark Lantern."


The butcher has gray hair kept in a ponytail. He wears a blue shirt and dark blue pants under a white apron and holds a meat cleaver.


The butcher was in the tavern when Wirt, Gregory, and Beatrice arrived there. When the toymaker called Wirt the "young lover", the butcher demanded that Wirt sing a love song, along with the midwife. After Wirt sang his terrible song , the butcher called him the "pilgrim" and lifted him above his head so that Wirt could tell stories of his travels. He dropped Wirt after he mentioned the Beast.
