— Her trying to explain how singing helps fight disease to the Baudelaires

The Perky Volunteer is a member of the Volunteers Fighting Disease. She is often quite cheerful, but isn’t very clever. She could be classed as psychopathic because when Klaus and Sunny (dressed as Dr. Faustus) try to stall from having to cut off Violet’s head, she yells “Cut off her head!”

She survives the Heimlich Hospital fire, and is seen afterwards helping in the search for the Baudelaires.

The Perky Volunteer later goes to Hotel Denouement in "The Penultimate Peril" and attends the trial of the Baudelaires. She calls them guilty after what happened to Heimlich Hospital.

Behind the scenes

In the Netflix TV series adaptation of The Hostile Hospital, she is portrayed by Lauren McGibbon.
