"I’m going to kill him."
-- interview with Hector Bolobolo, 14 May 2014 (Pm)

Hector Bolobolo

Quidditch team manager and trainer for the Fiji National Team (2014).

Following the disaster involving the Fijian team mascots during the opening ceremony at the 2014 Quidditch World Cup, Bolobolo's team played one of the tournament favourites Nigeria in their first match. After Fijian Seeker Joseph Snuka's suicide Snitch grab cost Fiji the match, Bolobolo swore he would "kill" him (Pm).

Commentary

Etymology

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).
Bolobolo is likely to come from the name of the rare Fijian Bolo snake (Ogmodon vitianus), although the word does mean "thicket" in the language of Madagascar and "duck" in Somali (Wiktionary).
