Agnogg Buckwash, otherwise referred to as simply the Novalis Chairman or the Mayor, is a support character in Ratchet & Clank and its 2016 re-imagined game, with a cameo in Up Your Arsenal. He is the elderly mayor of Tobruk Crater on planet Novalis.
Ratchet & Clank
Buckwash was first seen aboard Chairman Drek's ship, who was attempting to protest Drek's extraction of a portion of Novalis for his new world. Drek gave Buckwash no choice, saying he would not withdraw his troops, and that Buckwash's only choice was to evacuate the citizens from the planet. Buckwash threatened that Captain Qwark would stop him, which Drek laughed at, as Qwark was working for him.
Buckwash later landed on planet Novalis in a ship in front of Ratchet and Clank after the mission "Find a new ship," and, out of fear, gave them an infobot with coordinates for Kerwan, believing them to be torturers or assassins sent by Drek. When it became clear that Ratchet and Clank were merely travelers looking for a new ship, Buckwash relaxed, and granted them a Courier Ship for free.
In Qwark's retelling of events, Agnogg Buckwash was locked away in his ship during the blarg invasion of Novalis. Once Ratchet and Clank repelled the invasion, he exited his ship as it was safe, telling them that the blarg had invaded Novalis after his nephew, Skidd McMarx, had accidentally revealed secret blarg hydroharvester plans. Buckwash offered them an infobot with coordinates to Aridia, where they would find McMarx.
Later, when Novalis was destroyed by the Deplanetizer, the entire population of Novalis had been evacuated, meaning Buckwash presumably evacuated along with them.
Up Your Arsenal
Buckwash was seen watching the Secret Agent Clank movie premiere.
Agnogg Buckwash is the member of a species seen widely throughout the Solana Galaxy, with blue skin and black spikes on his head, similar to other characters such as The Plumber. He holds a walking stick, has small glasses, and wears dark clothing with a red cape. He also has a thick black mustache and thick eyebrows, though these appear grey instead in his Up Your Arsenal cameo.
In the re-imagining, Buckwash appears slightly more regal, wearing brightly colored purple and blue clothing. He is also able to stand upright, and instead holds a gold cane.

Agnogg Buckwash's holocard mistakenly spells his name "Abner Buckwash."
