An obsequious person is more likely to be a follower than a leader. This word comes from the Latin root sequi, meaning “to follow.” (The other contributor is the prefix ob-, meaning “toward.”)

“Sequi” is the source of a number of other English words, too, including “consequence” (a result that follows from an action), “sequel” (a novel, film, or TV show that follows an original version), and “non sequitur” (a conclusion that doesn’t follow from what was said before).
