Ben Hoverboard aventuras Ben Hoverboard aventuras 1. Similar to Ben Hoverboard aventuras. Scary Teacher 3D 5. Duel Links 5. Dragons: Rise of Berk 1. Sakharine stole the two parchments, but he soon discovers they were pickpocketed by Aristides Silk and recovers them.
At the end of Red Rackham's Treasure , Mr. Sakharine can be seen attending the exhibition held at Marlinspike Hall , together with his landlady, showing off the various items recovered from the actual ship itself. He appears to have offered Captain Haddock his Unicorn model, which is shown in the display with the other two. In the unfinished Tintin adventure Tintin and Alph-Art , the surviving drafts of the story suggest that Haddock and Tintin notice Sakharine at a meeting hosted by mystic Endaddine Akass.
The film portrays him as the descendant of the pirate Red Rackham , seeking vengeance on behalf of his ancestor against Sir Francis Haddock , who killed Rackham.
Sakharine is portrayed by Daniel Craig who also portrays Red Rackham in the motion capture film. His son is the spoiled prince Abdullah. Ben Kalish Ezab then appears in Tintin and Alph-Art , announcing during a television interview that he will build a museum of art in Wadesdah.
Ben Kalish Ezab is depicted as kind and jovial to his friends and vicious and cruel to his enemies. On one occasion, Dr. More than anything else, he dotes on his son Abdullah. Laszlo Carreidas , a wealthy aircraft manufacturer tycoon , becomes embroiled in the adventure Flight to Sydney. While Tintin and his friends are travelling in Indonesia on their way to Sydney, Captain Haddock mistakes Carreidas sitting in the Jakarta airport for a tramp.
Meanwhile, the criminal mastermind Rastapopoulos kidnaps Carreidas to take his Swiss fortune. He is drugged by Dr. Krollspell to reveal his Swiss bank account number, rescued then bound by Tintin and Captain Haddock and marched as a hostage, and hypnotised by Mik Kanrokitoff to think that he still wears his hat.
Kanrokitoff hypnotises him again and leaves him with the others in the motorboat, and later, Carreidas is on the flight to Sydney with Tintin and his friends. His unassuming figure notwithstanding, Carreidas is revealed to be a cunning individual with a long history of unscrupulous behaviour not limited to the business world; he is not above cheating Captain Haddock at a game of Battleships with the help of closed-circuit television.
An aircraft industrialist, Laszlo Carreidas naturally travels in a prototype supersonic business jet , the Carreidas Accordingly, the logo on the tail of his business jet consists of four aces. The Maharaja of Gaipajama is the monarch of a fictional princely state of India. He is kind and immediately trusting of Tintin, whom he meets in Cigars of the Pharaoh. The Maharaja explains that his family have long been fighting a criminal opium -smuggling gang.
The Blue Lotus opens in the Maharaja's palace, where Tintin has been his guest. In reality, there is no place in India called Gaipajama; the name is a nonsensical mix of two Hindi words: Gai cow and pajama. She wears large glasses and is a follower of Endaddine Akass. Due to a listening device hidden in her necklace, she is made an unwitting informer of Akass and his henchmen. French: Mik Ezdanitoff . Mik Kanrokitoff is a Russian writer for the magazine Space Week.
His fortuitous appearance in Flight to Sydney helps Tintin, Captain Haddock, and their friends escape from an Indonesian island after Rastapopoulos and his cohorts set off an explosive charge, stirring up the island's volcano.
Kanrokitoff wears a small antenna and transmitter that enables him to communicate telepathically with other people and even subject them to mass- hypnosis. He maintains close touch with an unseen race of extraterrestrials and it is their spaceship that enables Tintin and the others to escape the island.
He appears in King Ottokar's Sceptre. A keen motorist who drives his own car and keeps his own gun for protection, he is married to an unnamed queen consort. Because the Crown's sceptre once saved the life of King Ottokar IV in , every year on Saint Vladimir 's Day, 15 July, the current king must show the people that he has the sceptre; otherwise he will be forced to abdicate.
Tintin discovered a plot to steal the sceptre and set out to warn King Muskar XII, though traitorous elements in the king's entourage, led by his aide-de-camp Boris Colonel Jorgen , were ready to stop him. Upon hearing of the plot, the monarch was fair-minded enough to investigate Tintin's claims, which turned out to be true: the sceptre had been stolen, a constitutional crisis was imminent, and Syldavia was about to be plunged into an invasion by its long-term enemy Borduria.
Muskar then orders his ministers and generals to prevent the invasion. The revolutionary party in the adventure, called the Iron Guard, may have been inspired by the Fascist paramilitary groups widespread in Europe between the wars. The abdication crisis was very similar to that of the Anschluss in Austria in , though the conclusion was not the same. King Muskar XII and his country do not appear to have been based on definitive models; both were inspired by various Eastern European and Balkan states.
The king bears a striking resemblance to Zog of Albania , a man who also carried a gun and confronted violent conspiracies. He is sometimes shown wearing a military uniform, holding the rank of Colonel of the Royal Guards. The king's military service is similar to members of other real European royal families, who have members that have served in their nation's militaries.
King Muskar XII is noticeably absent from the post-war stories set in Syldavia: he does not appear at the launching of the moon rocket in Destination Moon and Tintin does not call on him for help when his friend Professor Calculus is kidnapped by Bordurian and later Syldavian agents in The Calculus Affair. The post-war Syldavia may no longer be a monarchy; the latter Adventures set after World War II came at a time when various Balkan models for the fictional Syldavia had now been overthrown and their rulers exiled.
Senhor Oliveira da Figueira or Oliveira de Figueira is the friendly Portuguese salesman who can sell even the most trivial of items. He and Tintin first meet in Cigars of the Pharaoh. He quickly talks Tintin into buying a variety of superfluous objects. He later appears in Land of Black Gold , where he plays a valuable role in helping Tintin infiltrate Dr. He gets a brief mention in The Castafiore Emerald , when he sends good wishes to Captain Haddock following news claiming that he and Bianca Castafiore are engaged.
He is named Oliveira da Figueira lit. Both spellings are correct in Portuguese: "de" means "of", while "da" means "of the". Patella is a ginger bearded osteopathic doctor who appears briefly in Destination Moon and Explorers on the Moon. His model skeleton is arrested by Thomson and Thompson , and later he attends to an unconscious Captain Haddock after his arrival back on Earth.
He also sent a congratulatory telegram to Haddock when incorrect news of his engagement to Bianca Castafiore was announced in The Castafiore Emerald.
Patella's very minor role in the series. A psychoanalyst postulated that children remember proper names much better than adults, hence its retention by members of the audience who read Tintin in their youth. He arranges for Tintin to be kidnapped, but when Tintin is brought before him, he recognises him from his adventures, frees him, and sends him on his way with fresh supplies. His servant shows Tintin an Adventures of Tintin book that Pasha owns.
The book title shown to Tintin has changed over the years; it was originally Tintin in America , it became Tintin in the Congo at one point, and eventually settled on Destination Moon —the most recently published title at the time but, confusingly, takes place after the events in Cigars of the Pharaoh. Professor Philippulus , or Philippulus the prophet as he calls himself, is an astronomer who appears in The Shooting Star.
After observing a ball of fire making its way towards Earth, Philippulus goes insane, dresses himself in white sheets, and goes around town beating a gong while claiming to be a prophet tasked with announcing the end of the world. The madman also decides that Tintin is a spawn of the Devil , and takes to harassing him at his home.
Philippulus later escapes a mental asylum and makes it to the expedition ship Aurora , eventually taking refuge up the main mast and nearly setting off a stick of dynamite in the belief that it is a firework. Tintin tricks him into climbing down by using a megaphone to shout supposedly heavenly instructions for him; Philippulus relents and is taken back to the asylum. Philippulus represents the dilemmas some face over religious belief and scientific research. In his case, the conflict took a toll on his mind when the end of the world appeared to be imminent.
French: Professeur Hippolyte Calys . Professor Decimus Phostle is an astronomer, observatory director, and expedition leader in The Shooting Star. Tintin consults him about a large bright star he saw in Ursa Major. Professor Phostle claims that it is a ball of fire that will hit the Earth and cause the end of the world the following morning, and actually looks forward to this, thinking that predicting the end of mankind would make him famous. Initially disappointed that the meteor has missed the Earth, Phostle consoles himself by naming an unknown metal fallen from the meteor after himself: "phostlite".
He then leads an expedition of scientists to follow Tintin and Captain Haddock to attempt to retrieve the fallen phostlite from the sea.
The Picaros are a band of guerillas in the country of San Theodoros , supposedly under the control of General Alcazar in Tintin and the Picaros.
Alcazar has returned to his country and is attempting to command the Picaros to mount a guerrilla operation over of his arch-rival General Tapioca. However, the Picaros have become corrupt drunkards since Tapioca started dropping copious quantities of alcohol near their camp. Tintin offers to cure the Picaros of their alcoholism if Alcazar agrees to refrain from killing Tapioca and his men.
Alcazar reluctantly agrees. Moments after the Picaros are cured, a musical troupe called the Jolly Follies arrives, intending to perform at the upcoming carnival in San Theodoros.
Alcazar, with a little advice from Tintin, launches an assault on Tapioca's palace during the carnival by dressing the Picaros in the troupe's costumes and sneaking them into the capital. Tintin shoots down Skut's plane with an assault rifle in self-defence, but later rescues Skut from the waters onto a hastily assembled life raft. Grateful for his rescue, Skut becomes a faithful friend and later refuses to betray Tintin and Haddock, instead sharing the rest of the adventure with them.
He repairs the sabotaged radio of the S. Ramona and steers the Ramona to outmaneuver torpedoes while Tintin calls for help, which arrives just in time to save the boat from a submarine 's attack. In Flight to Sydney , Skut has become a supersonic business jet pilot of the Carreidas , the prototype jet for millionaire Laszlo Carreidas.
The aircraft is then hijacked by his own crew, who were under the pay of criminal mastermind Rastapopoulos. Skut aids Tintin and Haddock in rescuing the other captured passengers and, after an adventure involving extraterrestrials , returns with them to civilisation.
Piotr is Polish for Peter while the correct Estonian version would be Peeter. The name Skut was rather an excuse for a gag, as Captain Haddock believes he is telling him to "scoot" rather than introducing himself. In the original French, the Captain mistakes the name "Szut" for "zut", the French exclamation of frustration. In other international versions, his last name is changed to entail a rudely dismissive or slightly offensive term befitting the language in question.
The Prince of the Sun is the reigning monarch over a lost, sun-worshipping Incan civilisation in Prisoners of the Sun. When Tintin's party invades his temple, the Prince plans to burn them at the stake , but change his mind when a solar eclipse occurs just before the sacrifice.
Convinced that the Sun God favours Tintin, the Prince releases him and provides him with generous gifts of gold and jewels. In return, Tintin and his friends promise never to reveal the location of the Temple of the Sun. Tintin learns that Nash is under the control of Endaddine Akass to fabricate paintings of the masters in an art forgery ring. Ridgewell is a British explorer who travelled into the South American rainforest occupied by the Arumbayas.
When Tintin ventured into Arumbaya territory, Ridgewell initially fired darts at him in order to scare him away, but later agreed to take him to the Arumbaya village for information. Ridgewell did bring some of Western civilisation to the Native South Americans, such as introducing them to the game of golf. However, the players do not appear to have mastered it well—on one occasion hitting Tintin rather than the hole in the ground. Ridgewell's influence on the Arumbayas resulted in him gaining an enemy in the local witch doctor.
When Ridgewell was captured by an enemy nation called the Rumbabas Bibaros in the original version , the witch doctor kept this from the other Arumbayas, hoping to be rid of his rival.
When one Arumbaya expressed concern for Ridgewell, the witch doctor threatened to turn him and his family into frogs. But Ridgewell got away and fired a dart into the witch doctor's bottom as punishment. Fortunately, unlike the Arumbayas, Ridgewell did not use poisoned darts. Ridgewell is also a ventriloquist and has a sense of humour, shown on occasions such as in Tintin and the Picaros when he fired a dart into the cigar of General Alcazar.
In that adventure, he reestablished ties with Tintin, and was shown to lament changes in the behaviour of the Arumbayas, namely the spread of alcoholism. The character of Ridgewell is strongly reminiscent of the real-life British explorer Percy Fawcett who disappeared in the Amazon in under similar circumstances. They were hospitalized while cursed by the Incas as punishment for the theft of the mummy, put into comas and made to suffer nightmares.
Tintin visited the Incas' hidden temple in order to save Professor Calculus , who had been kidnapped by them. He persuaded the Prince of the Sun to lift the curse, assuring the Incas that the expedition's purpose was not to steal from their people but simply to teach others about them. The Prince of the Sun releases his control over the Sanders-Hardiman expedition members and they awaken from their curse.
Sophocles Sarcophagus is an absent-minded professor and Egyptologist in search of the tomb of the Pharaoh Kih-Oskh, whom Tintin meets on a cruise ship at the beginning of Cigars of the Pharaoh. He is a bit of an eccentric: rowing a boat while unaware that it is not even in the water, saying goodbye to Snowy as if he was a little boy, and bumping into things and people.
He is distracted, dresses Edwardian , and has an unusual beard. Sophocles leads Tintin to the tomb hidden under the sand, but disappears soon after finding it. He, Tintin, and Snowy end up floating in sarcophagi in the middle of the Red Sea. Sophocles is then picked up by a ship captained by Allan , a drug smuggler, whose gang uses the tomb of Kih-Oskh as a base.
With Sophocles as a prisoner, the ship sets off for India. When Cigars of the Pharaoh was first published in the s, Sarcophagus was an unnamed and beardless scholar who wore sunglasses. When Tintin explored the tomb, he found sarcophagi for himself and Snowy but not for the scholar, who does not even turn up in the Red Sea incident—thus, how he ends up in India is unexplained. Tintin finds Sophocles in the Indian jungle completely by chance in a string of absurd coincidences,  painting the symbol of Kih-Oskh on palm trees.
Tintin even speculates that the scholar is a member of the gang of drug smugglers that he finds himself pitted against. Sophocles is now completely mad because he has been given poison called Rajaijah, imagining himself to be Pharaoh Ramesses II. He is eventually committed to a sanatorium in India for treatment.
In The Blue Lotus , an antidote for Rajaijah was developed, but it was never revealed whether Sarcophagus was cured. Edgar P. French: Professeur Hippolyte Bergamotte . He was one of the Sanders-Hardiman expedition members and displays the mummy of Rascar Capac in his home. He had previously been a classmate of Professor Calculus and this connection enables Calculus, Tintin and Captain Haddock to visit him at home one evening while he is under heavy guard during a summer rainstorm.
Professor Tarragon is a large, strong, and ebullient character, whom Calculus formally called "Hercules". Tarragon seems fearless until a fireball bursts through his chimney and vaporises the mummy; he then becomes very shaken and fears that an ancient prophecy is coming true.
That same night, he is the last to be attacked by means of the crystal balls. Although reluctant to risk the perilous attempt to find Chang, whom he believes to be dead, Tharkey leads Tintin and Captain Haddock to the crash site of the aircraft. After initially leaving the site to return to his village, he feels guilty for leaving them alone and returns just in time to help Tintin and Haddock out of a dangerous situation.
However, he subsequently breaks his arm from an avalanche and must return to the plains after partly convalescing at a Buddhist monastery while Tintin and the Captain continue their search for Chang. Tharkey was based on Ang Tharkay , a Nepalese mountain climber and explorer who acted as sherpa and later sirdar for many Himalayan expeditions. He was "beyond question the outstanding sherpa of his era" and he introduced Tenzing Norgay to the world of mountaineering.
Zorrino is an indigenous Peruvian boy who makes a living by selling oranges in the mountain town of Jauja. In Prisoners of the Sun , he leads Tintin and Captain Haddock on the trail of their kidnapped friend Professor Calculus to the Incan civilisation in the mountains.
At the end of the adventure, Zorrino is invited to stay in the Inca city and follow their way of life, an invitation which he accepts. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Wikipedia list article. Main article: Tintin character. Main article: Snowy character.
