Sketched ou Monday...and a little game...with a House-headed Marionette

So today were going to play a little game.  I've been working on another little marionette-ish thing.  So I thought I start off with a sketch...a few black and white shots....and let you guess what this little dude does.  

Question 1.  This puppet has one simple action.  Pull a string and....What does this marionette do?  

Queston 2.  I am currently writing a fairytale based on this character.  The source for the story is a Shakespearian play.  What is that play?  Bonus...who is the  character
Hint: My favorite quote comes from this play
Hint: It has been suspected that this play is an interpretation of the colonization of the so called "New World".
Tomorrow I will answer the questions and show a full color version of the marionette scene.  Plus...I'll include a video showing the puppet's movement.

see you tomorrow

I'm guessing it's Caliban from "The Tempest", and he moves his eye.

I'm thinking Eristic is right but I say its the lobster claw that opens and closes.

I am guessing Caliban from The Tempest. I have no idea what he does, though.

I'm betting it's Caliban from the Tempest. It looks like the eye moves but am hoping the claw hand opens and closes.

"Full fathom five thy father lies.." is the beginning of your favorite Shakespearean quote, and it's from The Tempest. I think the claw rises, and since there is a bell in that quote, perchance the claw contains a little bell?

I suspect it's Caliban too, based on your previous revelations. I'm not sure about the puppet's action though. If it were mine it would probably poop pearls.....
