Prak - Zarquon

Zarquon is a legendary prophet. He is worshipped by a small group visiting The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, and is old, bearded, robed, wreathed in light, has starry eyes and a crown of gold. His name is frequently invoked as a curse, specifically a substitute for "God" or "fuck", such as "Holy Zarquon's singing fish" and "for Zark's sake" in the first meaning, and "you zarking frood" and "zarking fardwarks" (meaning "fucking hell") in the second meaning.

It is only on our visit to Milliways that Zarquon does indeed appear - his overdue second coming - moments before the Universe ends. The host Max claims that he had done the show "over five hundred times" and "nothing like this had ever happened before".

He appears in fit the fifth of the radio series, voiced by Anthony Sharp, in the book the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe and in episode 5 of the TV series is played by Colin Bennett.

He has a final brief cameo in the radio series The Quintessential Phase played by William Franklyn.
