Very little is known about Ivan Lachrymose. He is known to have discovered Lake Lachrymose.
His story appears in a tedious biography entitled Ivan Lachrymose: Lake Explorer. Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography reveals that the book was written so VFD could hide important documents between pages 302 and 303.
- Lemony lists Ivan Lachrymose as an associate of Count Olaf.
- "Ivan Lachrymose: Lake Explorer" is written by Vincent Francis Doyle and published by Very False Documents Press, both obvious references to V.F.D. It is also one of the books Kit (as Ms. K) tried to make her students read at Prufrock Preparatory School.
