Robin Hood was one of the six parrots that were trained by John Silver to speak the clues that leaded to the hidden painting that was smuggled by Silver,[1] and was owned by an unknown customer. Its line in the clue was, "I shot an arrow as a test, a hundred paces shot it west."[2] It meant that the grave of the three Severns was a hundred paces west of the entrance of the graveyard.[3]

History Edit

After John Silver had fled to California after smuggling the painting of the shepherdess, he started living in Ramos Sanchez's house. After getting an idea from the picture that was painted above the shepherdess' painting, Silver bought seven parrots with "pretty yellow heads" and seven cages. He then began teaching them their individual riddles.[4]

After Silver had died, Sanchez waited for the "fat man" who Silver said would come. However, the man didn't come, and all the parrots, including Robin Hood, were sold to different people.[5]

Plot Edit

When the sleuths came to know about Robin Hood's owner through the Ghost-to-Ghost Hookup, Bob and Pete went to his owner's house to buy him.

Some time later, Skinny Norris helped Huganay find the parrots and Claudius, and take them for himself.[6]

What happened to him after the mystery was solved is unknown.

Trivia Edit

  • He was named after Robin Hood, the "heroic outlaw" in English folklore. As Robin Hood was an expert archer, the parrots' speech also referenced archery.
  • His speech was Part 4 of the riddle.
