MSS Back Story: Piggy Hogstein


Norman (Piggy’s real name) is a simple-minded soul. He is also the butt of the office jokes at ESP. He is Jewish, so his nickname is a bit too ironic, but he tries not to let it interfere with his work.

Piggy’s job is to round up and arrest anyone caught outside after curfew. In his encounter with Benjamin, he finds a sympathetic ear about his feelings of guilt for what happened to Jesus 2,000 years ago. His intention to release Benjamin are thwarted at the last moment.

Piggy isn’t meant to be the comic relief in this story, but one cannot help but smile at the way he comes across. His heart is in the right place, even if nothing works out for him.

(He would be Herod interviewing Jesus in the Easter story.)
