The Peacock Gent is a minor character in Shovel Knight. He is a rich dandy interested in fancy clothing.
The Peacock Gent is, as the name suggests, a large blue peacock with an orange beak and green, blue, and pink feathers. He wears a large, elegant green and light-orange robed dress.
Shovel of HopeEdit
In Shovel of Hope, the Peacock Gent can be seen in the Armor Outpost, inside the Fancy Shop. When Shovel Knight approaches him, he claims to be rich enough to buy the store, but forgot his wallet. He asks Shovel Knight if he can loan him money so he can buy a hat. If Shovel Knight does, the Peacock will be surprised that his ploy worked, and will leave the outpost. He returns after the commotion with Mr. Hat.
Plague of ShadowsEdit
In Plague of Shadows, the Peacock Gent can be seen in the Fancy Shop. He flees with the rest of the townsfolk when Plague Knight attacks the Armor Outpost, and boards the Aerial Anvil during his escape.
He also appears in the ending in Pridemoor Keep, observing King Pridemoor honoring Plague Knight for his feats.
Specter of TormentEdit
When talked to:
- "Peacock Gent: With my vast riches, I could buy this whole store! But I forgot my wallet. Oh! Upstanding knight! You could part with a paltry 1000 gold, no?"
When refusing to pay:
- "Peacock Gent: Surely you're in a similar situation, friend? You forgot your wallet too, yes?"
When paying him:
- "Peacock Gent: Wow, thanks! I can't believe that worked!"
Returning to the shop:
- "Peacock Gent: I just love coming to this fancy store. It makes me feel so... FANCY!"
- The Peacock Gent's sprite model is named "Peacock".
- The same model with the same color palette is used for a Cultured Fellow. His three alternate color palettes are also used for the Ticketer, Patrons and Cultured Fellows.
