The janitor is unnamed in his appearance in Ginger Snaps. He is very compassionate towards the students, and helps Brigitte Fitzgerald several times such as offering her a rag to clean blood off of herself, or scaring away Jason McCardy when he corners Brigitte in the janitor's room.

He dies a painful death under the hands and claws of Ginger Fitzgerald, who she believes is trying to advance on Brigitte, which is false.
