Sorry Angus...
~ Alan Parrish when smashing the cutlass case

General Angus Parrish was a war cavalry general and an important historical character in the early history of Brantford, New Hampshire. His descendants included a large extended family from Sam Parrish, Skylar Parrish, Alan Parrish to an unknown descendant.


Angus Parrish had a historical success as a three star General, which earned him a large memorial statue of himself riding a horse being built in the town square. On the day he discovered the Jumanji board game, Alan Parrish was cycling past General Angus' statue on his way home, until Billy Jessup and his gang ambushed him from behind to beat him up. After Alan disappeared from home when he was taken into the Jumanji dimension, the boy's disappearance devastated his parents and Sam abandoned his Shoe company which broke Brantford's economy and lead to anti-social behavior defacing the statue of General Angus.

In honor of the Parrish ancestry, a bust of General Parrish was kept on display in the library. A cutlass belonging to General Parrish was encased in a glass display on the Parrish Mansion fireplace in his honor, but Alan had to smash the glass to obtain the sword to save Peter Shepherd from the vine of a Pod, apologizing to Angus. Alan later used Angus' cutlass against Van Pelt, but the hunter was merely slowed down by it, who casted it aside.



  • Angus Parrish bears a striking resemblance to Alan's archenemy Van Pelt.
  • A statue of a man riding a horse appears in the original picture book. Whether or not this was General Parrish's book equivalent or not is debatable.
