A Sour Keeper
Mr. Filch is the keeper, steward and handyman of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the Harry Potter books and movies. He is a bitter old man who is never seen without his red-eyed cat Mrs. Norris, whom he loves more than anything in the world. Filch is known to hate the students, relishing it when one of them is punished or in danger of being expelled and is known to miss the days of corporal punishment. His character and attitude can be partly explained by the fact that he is a squib, that is, someone who comes from a family of wizards but has no power himself. That’s why Dumbledore hired him as a guardian years ago, so that he could stay in the wizarding world and we learn in the books that he tried many times to learn techniques that were supposed to give him powers.
