In Fable, Mr. Gout plays a minor role in the Collect the Hero Dollsquest, in which he offers his rare Jack of Blades hero doll in return for six other dolls scattered across Albion. In Fable: The Lost Chapters, there are seven dolls to be collected in return for the Jack of Blades doll.
In Fable: The Lost Chapters, Mr. Gout can be approached regarding the school's collection of books. He will explain that Lady Elvira Grey, the Mayor of Bowerstone, has sold off over half of the school's library in order to collect funds. He asks the Hero to provide the school with 25 books to be used to teach the children. When provided with a book, he either performs a lesson or puts on a dramatic reading or play in summary of the works. As a reward, Mr. Gout and his students will give the Hero a Bright Wizard Hat or a Dark Wizard Hat, depending on the books donated.
He is only mentioned by name in Fable: The Lost Chapters.
Mr. Gout is chronically late in the mornings and will always arrive at the school well after his students.
He will follow the Hero regardless of morality alignment.
During Book Collection, if the "Book of Spells" is donated, Mr. Gout will remark, "The book of spells? This isn't some potty school of wizards, you know!" This is likely a reference to the Harry Potter series of books.
