Pointy-Haired Boss – PHB

The manager of Dilbert and the other engineers, and the main antagonist of the strip; his real name is never mentioned. In earlier strips the Boss was depicted as a stereotypical late-middle-aged balding middle manager; it was not until later that he developed his signature “pointy hair”. He is hopelessly incompetent at management and is very bombastic. He does not understand technical issues but always tries to disguise this, usually by using buzzwords he also does not understand. The Boss treats his employees alternately with disdain or neglect; he is narcissistic, using them to his own ends regardless of the consequences to them. Adams himself wrote that “He’s not sadistic, just uncaring.” The Boss’s level of intelligence varies from near-vegetative to perceptive and clever, depending on the strip’s comic needs. His utter lack of ethics, however, is perfectly consistent. His brother is a demon named Phil, the Prince of Insufficient Light, and according to Adams the pointy hair is intended to remind one of devil’s horns. (source: Wikipedia)
