Boz is a human male, a Big Hood, and Corpsetaker's henchman. He first appears in Ghost Story.


Boz is one of Corpsetaker's henchmen. He is a human tormented by wraiths for an extended period of time, which boiled his brain, making him more like a crazed beast. He had a psychic stench on him that carried into the spirit world. His "humanity had long since begun to fester and rot. He radiated a "physical and psychic power full of rot and corruption and rage and endless hungers".[1]

A huge man, Harry called him a "human garbage truck" and a "man mountain". He was crusted with thick filth, his eyes were like dull stones under his hood.[1]
