Quint is muscular in build with black hair, a pink nose, and a shaven face, though his clothing is constantly changing along with his occupation in the show. For example, in the episode; "Truth or Zaire," he appears as a wildlife photographer, while in "French Fried," he is a French cook trying to make escargot out of Speedy the Snail, a friend of Timon and Pumbaa.
Though his occupation does vary throughout the series, he will almost always go out of his way just to annoy Timon and Pumbaa. Most of the time Quint is vain, sneaky and arrogant, but has been known in a few episodes to be merely a non-villainous man with an honest job (though still manages to get in the way of Timon and Pumbaa's plans somehow or another). For example, in "Klondike Con," Quint begins as a courteous man helping Timon and Pumbaa, with Timon not gaining his trust, helping them get gold. When Timon and Pumbaa have the sack of gold with them as they are falling off a cliff, Quint says to throw the gold to him to help them get back up. Timon, still in distrust, declines his offer. However, Pumbaa reminds Timon all the good things Quint had done for them, so Timon decides to throw the bag to Quint so he could save them. At that moment, from "Courteous Quint," he turns into "Claim Jumper Quint" and steals the gold from Timon and Pumbaa.
Role in series
As his role varies in every episode he appears in, Quint has different first names that are related to what his jobs are. For example, in "Yukon Con," he appears as Cusco Quint (a con artist who tricks Timon into stealing Pumbaa's gold so that he can have it), in "Palm Beached," he appears as Concierge Quint (a hotel manager who keeps throwing Timon and Pumbaa out of a hotel) and he appears as Captain Quint in "Ocean Commotion" and "Going Over-Boar'd."
In the episode "The Pain in Spain," two Quints are seen together. This can prove that there is more than one of him.
- Quint is the only human to have met and had a confrontation with Simba (and vice versa), as seen in "Rome Alone."
- Quint's appearance and clothes as "Courteous Quint" in "Klondike Con" are a parody of America's 16th president, Abraham Lincoln a.k.a. Honest Abe including the hat and beard.
- Quint also has a habit of giving himself "nicknames," usually in relation to his jobs/roles in the various episodes he appears in. Ex. "Criminal Quint" as a robber, "Congo Quint" as a photographer, etc.
- Quint makes a cameo in the comic, Go Fish!.
- Quint is very similar to Norman from Marsupilami, as they both have varying roles with different first names relating to their jobs, they both have shaven faces, and they both serve as frequent antagonists, making them the archenemies of the heroes.
