Othello doesn't actually appear in the novel however, his owner Evie mentions her sidekick after Carlos finds Beelzebub prowling around Nowhere. Evie mentions her parrot has a swearing problem and doesn't know where he picked them up.
- Othello's name is a reference to his father's name's source. Iago is the name of the villain in Shakespeare's tragedy Othello. Therefore Othello is named after the play's titular character.
- Othello is mentioned in Chapter 20, 'Goblin Wharf' of the Isle of the Lost.
- Iago's chicks are the only sidekicks that are not mentioned in the prologue of the Isle of the Lost. Only the Hyenas, Flotsam and Jetsam and Lucifer's descendants are mentioned.
