For all of Andrew’s life, Simon had been a contented prisoner of his own contempt for other people, making his house a fortress against the world where his will was law, and where his mood constituted the family’s daily weather. As he had grown older, Andrew had become aware that his family’s almost total isolation was not typical, and become slightly embarrassed by it. Friends’ parents would ask him where he lived, unable to place his family; they would ask casual questions about whether his mother or father intended to come to social events or fundraisers. Sometimes they remembered Ruth from the primary school years, when mothers mixed in the playground. She was much more sociable than Simon. Perhaps, if she had not married such an antisocial man, she would have been more like Fats’ mother, meeting friends for lunch or dinner, busily connected to the town.

What’s the meaning of the ‘of’ in the passage? I'm now reading it as:
(1) He is a contented prisoner having the property of despising others.
(2) He is a prisoner contented by despising others
(3) He is a contented prisoner who has the natural disposition of despising others.
(4) He is the prisoner inasmuch as he is despising others but contented
When I read ‘of’, I habitually interpret it to my language’s equivalent ‘의.’ But it has sixteen entries in there, I wonder which would be the one for the context whenever I come across ‘of’. Would you tell me what ‘of’ in above context means?
