Civet, along with Stentor, was an assistant to Kenspeckle Grouse. He was helping Stentor relocate the Grotesquery when it fell on Stentor. Grouse became angry at Stentor, and more so when he said that it had moved. The Grotesquery awoke and killed both Civet and Stentor.
In the Alternate Dimension he is the assistant of Nye. He is told to remove Valkyrie's clothes but is afraid of what Valkyrie will do to him in retaliation. Later, Nefarain Serpine puts a knife to his throat when he was trying to save Valkyrie from Nye's clutches. Civet is not mentioned afterwards.
