Telly (Tellington) Nightschkeemer was an apprentice to amateur astronomer and known alcoholic Sir Alfred Von Hillscheimer that lived in the late 18th century. Later in his life, he was described by those that knew him as exceedingly excited about "something". He was briefly seen holding council with the Gentlemanly Association of Stellar-Educated Scholars, but nothing ever seemed to come from that relationship.

Not long after, Nightschkeemer was murdered in his home in his sleep by an unknown assassin. His cause of death was never revealed to the public.
