In Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Mr. Poe is a banker in charge of the affairs of the Baudelaire orphans. He is supposed to help them, but he is never very helpful. He probably is a member of V.F.D. because of the following:
In Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography, listed under disguises, there is an OperaGoer's disguise, which is listed as a Top Hat, Dark Coat, Formal Shoes, and Money, to give the appearance of wealth. Interestingly, every single other disguise listed on there is something we've seen, except for this, which sounds suspiciously like what Mr Poe wears.
Mr Poe is also always dropping them off in the care of someone who is in VFD, or closely related thereto. Count Olaf and Justice Strauss, Uncle Monty, Aunt Josephine (whose husband was in VFD, before he died), The Lucky Smells Lumbermill, which made the Emerald Wood for the VFDer's houses, Prufrock Prep, which is very possibly a VFD Training School, Esmé Squalor, and Hector. From then on, Mr Poe is gone.
