1) An elf from the Harry Potter
series that has to obey its master and do whatever is asked of it. It can only become free
if master presents it with
clothes. (Some house elves work in the Hogwarts
2) Someone who listens to everything that his parents
tell him to do, even bogus things like ironing a bunch of clothes, vaccuming a car he doesn't drive, fixing
vegetables, etc. Some house elves have cell phones that go off at random times, always from the parent asking him to do a task, and because
of his house elf nature
he is forced to obey.
"Dobby had to obey Lucius Malfoy because
he was his house elf"
"Why does Johnny always iron the clothes, vaccum, and fix the vegetables when he could just refuse? He's such
a house elf!!"
