The Beggar Man was an Indian mystic portayed by Deep Roy who was able to hide in the stomachs of his victims. Legless, he had merely a little cart on which he moved by propelling himself with his hands.
After Hugh Potocki left India in 2001, the Beggar Man acted as if he was poor and eventually acquired money from Potocki. The Beggar Man later killed Potocki and hid in the victim's stomach, bringing Potocki's body back to town while managing to make it seem as if the body was still alive. After the Beggar Man left Potocki's body, the body was found in its actual deceased state. The Beggar Man eventually took up a residency inside another man and began to work for a primary school. He eventually developed an interest in a Quinton, a 6th grader and Trever, a 7th grader at the school.
At night, the Beggar Man arrived at the house of Quinton and killed his father. Scully then examined his body and saw the Beggar Man leaving the stomach of the victim and went into hiding. He eventually followed Trevor and was able to escape, only to be presented with the opportunity to kill his mother by transforming into Trevor himself. Finally, the two boys worked together to stop the Beggar Man, who returned to the school at night. The Beggar Man was eventually beginning to follow the boys. He trapped Quinton in a classroom and transformed Trevor, after Scully and the school director arrived. However, he told Scully to shoot Trevor, who was actually the Beggar Man. He began to approach Scully, who ordered him to surrender but he did not desist, forcing Scully to shoot him three times. Moments later, Doggett arrived and saw his unconscious, lying on the floor.
