Duchamp is a minor character created by Tucker. He appeared in the episode "The Tale of Jake the Snake".


Pierre Duchamp (better known as just "Duchamp") is an enforcer on his high school hockey team. He is also a bully and little mean-spirited. During the events of the story, his coach was hosting tryouts for new players to join the high school hockey team. Here he was tearing it up, slamming people around. Two other boys who were best friends named Wiley Halpin and Zach were trying out for the team. Zach was playing with ease, but Wiley was doing poorly. He tackled Wiley a few times and seeing him getting riled up he tried to encourage him to fight back, but Zach broke it up. Finally he tackled Wiley so hard, that Wiley fell down and got a bleeding nose.

The next day, he was eager to pick on Wiley and push him around again. So he approached Zach asking him where his loser friend was, or if he was tired of taking a beating and bailed. Zach promised that Wiley would show up, and he did. However this time Wiley had completely turned things around. Wiley played amazingly and did even better than Zach did. When it came time to make the cut, Wiley was picked to join the team and not Zach. Here he finally started to give Wiley his respect and treat him like a member of the team.

What he didn't know was that a sinister voice had convinced Wiley to go and retrieve an old hockey stick. This stick was a magical stick that once belonged to famous player named Jake "The Snake" Desmond. The stick actually had a curse and was slowly turning Wiley into a real snake. After every time Wiley scored a goal with it. Jake Desmond had arranged this to be done to whoever used this hockey to collects souls.

Luckily Wiley defeated Jake with a slapshot to the head. Then Zach destroyed the hockey stick in time. So Wiley changed back to normal and no longer had the advantage. Afterwards it was unknown whether or not Wiley stayed on his team, or was cut from the team and replaced with Zach.
