"I have had no choice but to terminate his contract."
-- Cormack McLeod (DP3)
McLeod tried to defend his Chaser, Alasdair Maddock, after he kicked the Snitch towards the Keeper, resulting in a loss to the Kenmare Kestrels. He threatened to turn Maddock into a jellyfish should anything of the sort happen again (DP2, Pm).
Cormack, a variation of Cormac, comes from Irish Gaelic corb ("raven" or "wheel") and mac ("son"). It was also the name of a third century king of Ireland (Behind the Name).
McLeod is a Scottish surname meaning "son of Leod", deriving from the Norse name Ljotr (ljot-ulf "ugly wolf") (Internet Surname Database).
