This looks to me like

the traditional Seven Deadly Sins

so on the basis of the missing one I think that when he awoke he felt very

proud.

After coming home he ate all the food in the house,

Gluttony.

He didn't want to share any of it with his wife,

Avarice.

Then he noticed his neighbor's got way more food than him,

Envy.

So he went and beat the neighbor,

Anger.

Then he returned home and had sex with his wife,

Lust.

And finally went to sleep, having done no chores.

Sloth.

(I might quibble about a couple of the definitions.)

Incidentally, I suspect that the cardinal may have been

this chap. Traditionally one has cardinal virtues, of course, rather than cardinal sins.

  • $\begingroup$ I may, but these objects (unlike their opposites) are much more often referred to as "deadly" than as "cardinal". $\endgroup$
