Pirozhko was a pet adder owned by Bif Strogenov, a sailor aboard the SS Burya. Despite a ship policy that prohibited pets, Strogenov at least once snuck the snake on board, putting mouse traps in the ship's corridor to collect rodents for the reptile to eat.

Coiled around Strogenov's head.

While Strogenov was helping a runaway named Nikolina Pavlova cover-up Kazuma Asogi's apparent murder, the ship alarm suddenly sounded, scaring off Pirozhko. It wasn't until a group had formed in Pavlova's room that the snake reappeared.

After hearing that Asogi had seen a "speckled band" the night he had apparently died, Herlock Sholmes accused Pirozhko of playing a part in the murder, explaining away the fact that the snake was striped by stating that he had shed his skin before biting and killing Asogi. He also "deduced" that the snake had been controlled via a combination of giving him milk and using a whistle to summon him. However, Susato Mikotoba pointed out that the facts didn't match Sholmes's "logic": Pirozhko wouldn't drink milk, wouldn't have been able to hear whistles due to a lack of ears, and would have been unable to physically reach the crime scene unaided. After Ryunosuke Naruhodo corrected Sholmes, Strogenov revealed that Pirozhko was not venomous.


  • His Japanese and English names are likely a play on "pirozhok", a type of puff pastry originating in Russia and Ukraine.
