Bugg was the manservant of Tehol Beddict in Letheras.[1]

Tehol: "Ah yes, you have trousers to make—have you enough wool for that?"
Bugg: "Well, I can make one leg down all the way, or I can make both short."
Tehol: "How short?"
Bugg: "Pretty short."
Tehol: "Go with the one leg."
―Tehol and Bugg[src]

Bugg was described as an old man[2] with a grizzled head and a wizened face.[3]

He lived in Tehol's house but only came up onto the roof where Tehol spent most of his time when he needed more light for his tasks, one of which was knitting.[2]

Tehol: "Either way's fine."
Bugg: "How about wood?"
Tehol: "I'm not eating—"
Bugg: "For the hearth."
