‘Queer fish’

When you refer to someone as being a queer fish, what you mean is that he/she is strange. The person tends to be aloof. In other words, a queer fish is a bit of a loner.

Examples:  ”If I were you, I would stay away from Prema. She is a queer fish.” * “A lot of people say that your friend Jai is a queer fish.”
