Timothy James Dobbin is introduced in the story, UncleDobbinsParrotFair
He is described as "a retired sailor with an interest in nineteenth-century poets, an old bearded tar with grizzled red hair and beetling brows who wore baggy blue cotton trousers and a white T-shirt as he worked in his store."
Uncle Dobbin turns people's unwanted magic into birds so he can care for them at his store until people want them back. His store, UncleDobbinsParrotFair is in Santa Ana.
He is a character in ChristyRiddell's book How to Make the Wind Blow, so he may not therefore be a "legitimate" Newford character. However, due to Christy's penchant for putting his friends and acquaintances in his stories, Uncle Dobbin may really exist within the Newford universe.
