Origin: Latin

Meaning: from Latin remora meaning “delay”. It’s a genus of fish, also known as suckerfish, because they attach themselves to other fish and boats. The remora actually got their name in the belief that their attaching themselves to the boats slowed them down.

Mr. Remora is a teacher in Book 5 (The Austere Academy) who loved eating bananas, had a tendency of telling tedious stories, and expected his students to remember all the details.
