Earwig is Barry's pet owl. She picked up smoking from both Hafwid and Barry and has been known to snatch cigarets from the mouths of unwary students. Barry confined Earwig to her cage permanetly (unless he needs her to deliver letters) for trying to nip off Dorco's genitals. Barry's rule for cleaning her cage is "Don't clean it until your eyes burn". Although she is a snowy owl her feathers are stained yellow from years of smoking.
