Justice Strauss is Olaf's neighbor. The character debuts in the first book of Snicket's "A Series of Unfortunate Events", "The Bad Beginning", and instantly becomes a favorite of young Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire.
Meanwhile, Dr. Orwell does more harm than good to the Baudelaire orphans. The character debuts in the fourth book "The Miserable Mill". She has several tricks up her sleeve, even hypnotizing one of the children to aid in Olaf's endeavor.
