This man with a curious moustache and wearing a lavalliere makes a dramatic entrance at Tintin's apartment on page 7 of King Ottokar's Sceptre. His job within his country's secret service is to monitor Syldavian organisations abroad. Under the guise of a painter, Kaviarovitch, a Balkan national, is on the trail of conspirators who are trying to overthrow the Syldavian monarchy for the benefit of Borduria. Unfortunatly stricken with amnesia, this man with a picturesque moustache can't reveal to Tintin the conspiracy that is being prepared with the help of the fake Professor Alembick. A precise report established by this impostor concerning the activities of the Syldavian secret agent will be discovered after Alembick's arrest.
His name is inspired by the Persian word khaviar which is processed salted roe of large fish, such as sturgeon.
