Hugo wears an orange and blue sweater with a white jacket and blue trousers. He has floppy, wavy, dirty-blonde hair.
Hugo's personality can be seen as quite vain, and can often steer people away from talking to him. However, this does not steer Naiya away, who talks to him regularly. Even though Hugo can be seen this way, he has a love for cats, which may display a caring side to his personality.

After completing the puzzle The Cat in the Maze, Hugo gives the course Hugo's Troubles for the Train mini-game.
"Hugo is a smooth-talking young man who likes to charm the ladies. He loves cats and women almost as much as he loves himself. They say he spends hour after hour absorbed in the mirror trying to brush the knots out of his wavy locks."
- All of Hugo's puzzles are related to cats.
