I think the nickname ogre does fit – he’s large, grumbles a lot, ugly and stomps around. However, thinking about it more and how he makes us feel I have come up with a new nickname. Dementor. You know, those terrible wraith like things from the movie Harry Potter?
Let me give you a better description of them:
“Dementors are among the foulest creatures that walk this earth. They infest the darkest, filthiest places, they glory in decay and despair, they drain peace, hope, and happiness out of the air around them. Even Muggles feel their presence, though they can’t see them. Get too near a Dementor and every good feeling, every happy memory will be sucked out of you. If it can, the Dementor will feed on you long enough to reduce you to something like itself — soul-less and evil. You’ll be left with nothing but the worst experiences of your life.”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
This fits the ogre in every way.
