"I’m going to kill him."
-- interview with Hector Bolobolo, 14 May 2014 (QWC)
Following the disaster involving the Fijian team mascots during the Opening Ceremony at the Quidditch World Cup tournament, Bolobolo’s team played one of the tournament favourites – Nigeria – in their first round match. After Fijian Seeker Joseph Snuka’s suicide-Snitch-grab cost Fiji the win, Bolobolo was extremely angry (QWC).
Hector means "holding fast" and comes from Greek ‘εκτωρ (hektor) and εχω (echo) meaning "to hold, to possess". Hector appears in Greek legends as one of the champions of Troy (Behind the Name).
