Sergeant Robert ‘Bobby’ Ogden, formerly of the 4th Battalion, Royal Fusiliers, currently of no fixed abode. Less a friend of St. Cyprian’s than an acquaintance, Ogden and his squad were seconded to then-Royal Occultist Thomas Carnacki during the Great War.
Serving alongside Carnacki and St. Cyprian, Ogden and his men faced any number of unnatural opponents, including a nest of vampires beneath St. Martin’s Church in Ypres and the abominable Hound of Mons.
Ogden lost his arm at the Kemmelberg, during the Fourth Battle of Ypres in April 1918. It was during this same battle that St. Cyprian received his own wounds, and Carnacki lost his life. After the war ended, Ogden attempted to forget the horrors he’d experienced, but found himself drawn into the Royal Occultist’s orbit more than once, often to his chagrin.
Robert Ogden has appeared in the following stories:
- “Hochmuller’s Hound”
- “The Dreaming Dead”
- “The Return of the Hound”
