Mr. Sigfried Appleblossom was Artimé's theatre instructor. Mr. Appleblossom always tried to rhyme with everything he said. He died in the seventh book (Island of Dragons) after a fatal wound on the top of the mansion. It was said that he was like a father to Samheed Burkesh. His nickname from Claire Morning was Siggy. Before he died, he wanted Samheed to be his successor.
