Ishmael is the facilitator of the island in the 13th and final volume in the series. He adivises the islanders on what debris to keep and what to take to the Arboretum. Ishmael tells everyone, including the Baudelaire orphans, to "call him Ish", which no one does. It is discovered that secretly Ishmael brakes the island's customs in a library and kitchen the Baudelaire parents created beneath a gigantic apple tree. He is later infected with the Medusioud Mycelium and sails away with the other islanders and is never heard from again.
