Book 1

Dursley, Vernon Dursley, Vernon
Vernon Dursley is a big beefy man with hardly any neck and a very large, black mustache. He has a wide face and sausage-like fingers. Vernon is the director of Grunnings, a drill-making firm, and has an office on the 9th floor. He is a no-nonsense type of person and cannot stand anything out of the ordinary (ie: boring). He also has quite a temper—he looks like badly mixed black currant ice cream when irritated and flustered. Which, of course, is perfectly acceptable for a successful man like him (he is a Smeltings alum after all).

Vernon lived a perfectly pleasant and uninteresting life with his wife, Petunia, and his son, Dudley, at number four, Privet Drive. Until being attacked, in his opinion, by strange people who called him a ‘Muggle.’ This sort of outrageous behavior continued for the rest of that fateful November day in 1981. Though uneasy, Vernon had no idea that his life would never be the same again, and that he would wake up the next morning with a baby on his doorstep. The reason that the Dursleys are so determined to be normal is probably because they know full well just how abnormal some people are in the world. Petunia’s sister, for example, is what the Dursleys like to call ‘a freak.’ They wanted nothing to do with Lily and her crazy friends. So it was to Vernon’s horror when they were forced to take in her son after she and her husband had gotten themselves blown up—not that they would ever disclose that particular detail. The Dursleys generously provided their nephew, Harry Potter, with room (the cupboard under the stairs) and board (whatever Dudley didn’t eat). They would never discuss his parents in an attempt to stamp out anything the boy may have inherited from them. Unfortunately, their efforts went to waste and it soon became clear that the boy was just as much a freak as his parents. When he turned 11, there came a barrage of letters from that wretched world’s school. Vernon, being the upstanding citizen that he was, did everything he could to keep his nephew from being corrupted. In the end, he begrudgingly consented to let his nephew go to the ridiculous boarding school, just thankful that he wouldn’t have to deal with the boy for most of the year.

When the boy returned the next summer, however, Vernon regretted ever letting him be exposed to those lunatics. Harry came back mumbling gibberish and waving a stick around. Vernon tried to keep him out of company and tell people that he went to St. Brutus’s Secure Center for Incurably Criminal Boys. In spite of the fact that he clearly did all of this for the boy’s well being, Harry was ungrateful and insubordinate. He broke out of his room (that he was being locked in for his own protection). He disfigured Vernon’s sister, Marge, when she made polite conversation. His cracked friends even had the gall to destroy the Dursleys’ sitting room and threaten them. That’s not even mentioning the boy’s absurd pet and the silly story that some crackpot was after him. Vernon was furious to discover the danger his family was put in because they had taken the boy in, and even more livid to know that they were stuck with him until he came of age. Vernon looked forward to the day when he, his lovely wife and his exceptional son could live in peace.

Dursley, Petunia Dursley, Petunia
Petunia Dursley is a thin, beady-eyed blonde with nearly twice the usual amount of neck. She spends her days making sure her house is clean and the garden is tidy. The favorite hobby of this horse faced and bony woman is spying on her neighbors with her large, pale eyes. Despite her nosy nature, Petunia’s greatest fear is that people will discover her relation to certain disreputable types of people. It is a tightly kept secret (and she’d like it to stay that way) that Petunia’s sister was a witch. When they were young, Lily received an invitation to hone her ability at a special school. Petunia despised how their parents would naively praise her talents. She saw Lily for the person she was: a freak who did grotesque things. Poor Petunia was so traumatized by it all that she could never forget any of it, including a conversation about wizard prisons that she overheard completely accidentally.

After Petunia married Vernon Dursley, she wanted nothing more to do with her sister. She was too busy pampering her handsome and robust prince of a son. Unluckily, Petunia’s delightful life would be interrupted when she was forced to house her nephew, Harry Potter, whose reckless parents had gotten themselves killed. This event thwarted her attempt to ignore the subject she was so not interested in. Although the Dursleys gave him more than he deserved, Harry grew up to be an ungrateful, disobedient boy. Petunia was so thankful that her own son, Dudley, was sweet and well-adjusted. Things got progressively worse when Harry went off to that school of his. They had tried to stop him, but he disregarded their good intentions. When he returned during holidays, he would cause the Dursleys immense trouble. She always worried that her nephew’s bad habits would harm her Diddykins in some way. There was a close call when Harry almost got Dudley killed. Her husband had wanted to throw him out immediately, but Petunia had imprudently promised to keep him sheltered when she’d first taken him in. She must wait until Harry is old enough to leave them; in the meantime, she will have to be content with ignoring his presence and making sure Dudley is well fed.

Dursley, Dudley Dursley, Dudley
Dudley Dursley is the son of extremely proud parents Vernon and Petunia. As a baby, Dudley was so indulged he had begun to resemble a beach ball. Growing up, his parents gave him anything and everything he wanted. By the time he became a teenager, Dudley was seemingly wider than he was tall. His mother and father are quite pleased with their fine-looking son, with his thick blonde hair lying smoothly on his big fat head atop a very little neck. He has a large pink face, small watery blue eyes and numerous chins.

The only disagreeable part of Dudley’s life was his cousin, Harry Potter. Fortunately, Dudley made the most of the situation. His favorite sport was ‘Harry Hunting,’ in which he and his friends (Piers, Dennis, Malcolm and Gordon) would chase him down and use him as a punching bag. This pastime became less frequent after Harry went off to his strange school. He would carry an ugly stick around and threaten to hex him, so Dudley preferred to keep his distance (not that he was afraid of the puny git). Dudley went to a fine private school called Smeltings at which the school uniform consisted of a maroon tailcoat, orange knickerbockers, a flat straw hat and a knobbly stick with which to hit fellow students. At fifteen, he became the Junior Heavyweight Inter-school Boxing Champion of the Southeast (credit to Harry for helping him practice when they were younger). He also took up smoking and flaunting with his leather jacket. Dudley would use his ham-like hands to sharpen his accuracy by throwing stones at passing cars and children. Dudley had a near-death experience when his prat cousin tried to kill him (Harry made some weak excuse about invisible creatures). He was just glad his parents shared his dislike of Harry.

Potter, Lily (Evans) Potter, Lily (Evans)
Born:1958?
Appearance:Bright, almond-shaped, green eyes. Long, dark, thick, red hair.
Wand:10 ¼ inches, willow, swishy, nice for charm work

Lily Evans first learned of her magical abilities when she received her Hogwarts acceptance letter. She left her proud parents and jealous sister, Petunia, to become one of the brightest, most loved students at Hogwarts, despite being a Muggle-born. She was a teachers' favorite and Head Girl. Though she appeared to detest James Potter, he eventually wore her down.

At this time of war, Lily did her part by joining the Order of the Phoenix in the fight against the Dark Lord. She and James thrice defied Voldemort, then learned that, as a result, their son, Harry, could very well be destined to play a part in his fall. Now prime targets, their small family went into hiding through the Fidelius Charm. Unfortunately, a betrayal by their supposed friend and Secret-Keeper, Peter Pettigrew, put them at the mercy of the Dark Lord. After James tried to stop the Dark Lord, Lily was given the choice to stand aside and live. In a vain attempt to save her son, Lily put herself between Harry and Voldemort. Though both she and her husband died, her sacrifice invoked an ancient magic that kept Harry alive. Lily was able to leave a lasting protection in her son's blood in her last moment of life.

Potter, James "Prongs" Potter, James "Prongs"
Born:1958?
Appearance:Hazel eyes. Messy black hair that sticks up in back. Tall, thin. Nose slightly longer than Harry's. Glasses.
Wand:11 inches, mahogany, pliable, excellent for transfiguration

At Hogwarts, James was popular, athletic and smart—"the height of cool." By fifteen, he was arrogant and had taken to hexing others for fun, in particular Severus Snape. This created a mutual hostility that lasted beyond death. James's best friends at school were Sirius Black, whom he treated like a brother, Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew. The four of them created the Marauder's Map, an example of both their penchant for mischief and exceptional intelligence. When James found out that Remus was a werewolf, he was determined to keep him company by becoming an Animagus. It took him three years to accomplish it, but by his fifth year, he was able to transform into a stag. From this he got the nickname "Prongs" among his friends. James had a crush on Lily Evans and tried unsuccessfully to impress her. It wasn't until he deflated his ego that they started going out in their seventh year. James had become Head Boy and matured quite a bit.

Several years later, he had joined the Order of the Phoenix, married Lily and had a son, Harry, with her. During these dark times, James and his wife had already defied Lord Voldemort three times by the time they learned of a possible prophecy made about their son. In order to protect him—and themselves—they decided to go into hiding. James wanted Sirius to be their Secret-Keeper, since he trusted him more than anyone else; however, Sirius decided at the last minute that Peter should do it, as no one would ever suspect him. Peter betrayed the location of their home in Godric's Hollow to Voldemort and led to James and Lily's death on October 31st, 1981.

Harry James Potter was born on July 31st, 1980 to James and Lily Potter at the height of the Lord Voldemort’s reign. Just before his birth, a prophecy was made predicting the coming of one who could defeat the Dark Lord. Believing Harry was the one in question, Voldemort went after the Potter family. On October 31st, 1981, Voldemort found their secret hiding place and succeeded in killing first James, then Lily. When he tried to use the Killing Curse on young Harry, however, the curse backfired and destroyed himself instead. Lily Potter died trying to protect her son, thus setting in effect ancient blood magic that would keep her son from harm. Harry became the only known survivor of the Killing Curse, afterwards bearing a lightning shaped scar on his forehead where the curse had struck. Left orphaned and still potentially in danger, Harry was sent to be raised by his only living relatives.

Lily’s sister, Petunia, was charged with the care of her nephew. She, along with her husband, Vernon, and son, Dudley, are extremely magic-phobic Muggles. Though they took Harry in and fed, boarded and clothed him grudgingly, they never treated him well. Harry spent his first ten years on Privet Drive living in a cramped cupboard under the stairs. Undernourishment kept Harry small, but bullying by his cousin, Dudley, kept him quick. Despite this distressing upbringing, Harry was miraculously still a noble, thoughtful person. He was never told about the magical world or what had really happened to his parents. Outside of some minor incidents, the first time Harry learned of his abilities was when he was accepted into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at age 11. After being kept from his bombardment of acceptance letters, he was finally enlightened by Hogwarts’ gamekeeper, Rubeus Hagrid. Hagrid became Harry’s first friend, gave him his first birthday cake, and introduced him to not only the magical world, but Harry’s own famous history.

Awed by the wonder of magic, yet worried about his capability, Harry began his first year at Hogwarts. At the train station, he happened to encounter the Weasley family. On this life-altering day, he became friends with Ron Weasley. In the months to follow, these two would eventually make another best friend, Hermione Granger, after saving her from a mountain troll. Together, they survived their first year of school. Harry discovered his love—and talent—for flying. He also developed a strong dislike for his Potions Master, Professor Snape, whose dislike of Harry’s father transferred to the son as well. Believing Snape to be after the Sorcerer’s/Philosopher’s Stone that was hidden within the school, Harry dove into his first big adventure. With his new friends, he was able to overcome many obstacles to keep the Stone safe. It was there that Harry encountered Lord Voldemort again, sharing the body of Professor Quirrell, the teacher who was really after the Stone. Surviving this confrontation with help from his mother’s lingering sacrifice, Harry concluded his eventful year generally happy with his new life.

The next year would bring Harry a house elf, Dobby, who tried to keep him out of danger by putting him into danger. The Dursleys were determined to keep him from returning to school, but Harry was rescued by Ron and his twin brothers, Fred & George. Harry spent an enjoyable summer at the Burrow with the Weasleys before returning to Hogwarts. It wasn’t long before trouble found Harry again. The enmity between Harry and Draco Malfoy heats up. He discovers he is able to speak Parseltongue (the language of snakes) and is therefore suspected as the heir of Slytherin. The diary of Tom Riddle (Voldemort) was given to and possessed Ginny Weasley, Ron’s sister, and unleashed a basilisk upon the school. Harry was able to destroy the diary as well as the monster and save Ginny’s life in the Chamber of Secrets.

The following year, Harry blows up at his family (literally) and runs away. He spends his summer at Diagon Alley unaware that he is being hunted by escaped prisoner Sirius Black. Thirteen finds Harry with his first crush, Cho Chang, as well as the excitement of winning his first Quidditch Cup. He also has to deal with Dementors, who take advantage of his life of horrible experiences. This is also the year in which Harry meets his father’s school friends: Sirius Black, his godfather; Remus Lupin, his DADA teacher; Peter Pettigrew, Ron’s pet rat. Through them, he learns the truth about how his parents were betrayed. Harry is ecstatic to have Sirius as his godfather, even if he does have to be on the run.

The fourth year sees Harry at the Quidditch World Cup and an unwilling participant in the Tri-Wizard Tournament. He also has his first encounter with Death Eaters and the Dark Mark. Through the course of the year, Harry has to survive the dangerous tasks of the tournament while not on speaking terms with Ron. By the end of it, he had witnessed the murder of a schoolmate, Cedric Diggory, and been captured and forced to facilitate in the return of Lord Voldemort. Though he officially won the tournament, this was the beginning of traumatic times for Harry.

Struggling to come to terms with Cedric’s death, Harry is short-tempered for most of his fifth year at Hogwarts. He is attacked by dementors and almost gets expelled from school. He is introduced to the Order of the Phoenix and number twelve Grimmauld Place. Harry has his first kiss and date with Cho, though they didn’t go extremely well. He learns to lead and teach his fellow students in the D.A. during his O.W.L. year. Voldemort learns that Harry can enter his mind, then uses this information to lure Harry to the Ministry of Magic in hopes of getting his hands on the prophecy. Through the years, Harry has developed a need to take it upon himself to save anyone who needs saving. Voldemort took advantage of this, and a disastrous confrontation in the Department of Ministries leaves Sirius dead. Harry is distraught with guilt even while he learns that he is destined to kill or be killed by Voldemort.

At sixteen, Harry has matured much after so many tragic experiences. He has private lessons with Headmaster Dumbledore in preparation for his entwined destiny with Voldemort. He becomes the Gryffindor Quidditch Captain and falls for Ginny Weasley. The end of the year witnessed the murder of Dumbledore by the traitorous Snape. Harry vows to finish the job and defeat Voldemort once and for all.

    McGonagall, Minerva McGonagall, Minerva
    Born:October 4

    Minerva McGonagall is rather severe looking witch with black hair drawn into a tight bun. Being an Animagi, she can transform into a tabby cat. She can be recognized by the markings around her eyes that match her square glasses. She was hired as the Transfiguration professor in December of 1956. Since then, she has also become the Deputy Headmistress, and she is the Head of Gryffindor house. As a professor, she is strict and clever and smiles rarely. In fact, her lips get very thin when she is irritated. She also has dark eyebrows that, when contracted, make her look like a hawk and a bony nose. Though stern, McGonagall is fair and, at times, even sympathetic. She has a tin of ginger newts in her office that she’ll force students to eat. She is an avid Quidditch fan.

    McGonagall is a member of the Order of the Phoenix. When Hagrid was attacked by Aurors, she tried to stop them and got hit by at least four stunners in the process. She had to be transferred to St. Mungo’s to recover. After returning for the end of the school year, she had to use a walking stick but was otherwise still the same as before. McGonagall and some of the Order tried to fend off Death Eaters when they ambushed Hogwarts in ’97. Tragically, they could not prevent the murder of Albus Dumbledore. As Deputy Headmistress, McGonagall took over the duties of running the school.

    Riddle, Tom Marvolo "Voldemort" Riddle, Tom Marvolo "Voldemort"
    Born:December 31, 1926
    Name analysis:French: vol de mort= flight of death

    Tom Marvolo Riddle was born in a Muggle orphanage in London to Merope Gaunt, who died giving birth. All he knew about his father was that his name was Tom Riddle. He was a tall, good-looking, black-haired boy. Tom was an odd boy and he was suspected of bullying the other children. He showed disturbing characteristics of cruelty, secrecy and domination. He would also steal things from other children and consider them trophies. One day, Albus Dumbledore showed up and offered him a place at his school; he also told Tom that he was special—magical. Tom was eager to go to the school, a place where he could be somebody. He was especially eager to start using his magical power, which he already had some control over. He even developed a knack for Legilimency and possession at a young age. Since he had always been alone, Tom was determined to be independent. He always made sure to keep important things to himself.

    As a charming, talented orphan with a thirst for knowledge, he impressed most of the staff at Hogwarts. Tom was a Slytherin from the moment he adorned the Sorting Hat. Upon entering the school, he began making a group of diverse friends who were dedicated to him. During the group’s tenure at Hogwarts, there were many nasty incidents that could never quite be traced to them. On the surface, Tom was a model student, prefect and even Head Boy. But there were more important things to him. Tom thought for sure that his father had been a wizard, as he could not believe his mother would have died if she could do magic. So obsessed with determining his parentage, he began researching his father. When he finally had to admit the magic must have come from his mother, he was ashamed of her weakness. But he was more ashamed that his father was not magical, so he dropped the name he had always hated for its commonness anyway. He rearranged the letters of his full name to create the moniker “I Am Lord Voldemort.” To his cohorts, he would from then on be Lord Voldemort. Making the connection between his ability to speak Parseltongue and Salazar Slytherin’s renown for it, Tom determined he must be his heir. Though they were taught that the Chamber of Secrets was just a legend, he spent years finding out everything he could about it. In his fifth year, he finally found the entrance and unleashed the basilisk within. He agreed with Slytherin’s belief that the school should be purged of Mudbloods. However, when faced with the possibility of the school closing, he decided to frame another student, Rubeus Hagrid, and close the Chamber for the time being. Hogwarts was the only place to which he had ever felt attached. He received the Award for Special Services to the School for his trouble. He also had a Medal for Magical Merit. He preserved the memory of himself inside a diary so that one day he could lead someone else to finish Slytherin’s noble work.

    When Voldemort was 16, he went in search of his relatives over the summer. He had discovered that Slytherin’s surviving line was the Gaunt family. He made his way to Little Hangleton and came upon his uncle, Morfin. He found out that his grandfather, Marvolo, had already died. He also learned the story of how his father had abandoned his mother and that his father was still in the village. Though he framed Morfin for it, he murdered his father and grandparents, already adept at the Killing Curse. He took from Morfin a ring that was a Slytherin heirloom. He went back to school and asked his potions professor, who obviously favored him, about the creation of Horcruxes. He had always had the talent to carefully flatter people into giving him what he wanted. Prof. Slughorn told him exactly what he needed to know; all he had to do was commit a murder to split and seal part of his soul in an object and that he could do this multiple times to ensure a better chance at survival. Determined not to succumb to death like his mother, he would do whatever it took to be strong and powerful. He sealed pieces of his soul in his diary and his newly acquired ring (which he then buried in the Gaunt house).

    Voldemort wanted to stay on as a professor at Hogwarts, but when told he was too young, he left. Though with his marks and merits, he could have easily gotten a high position somewhere, Voldemort chose instead to work at Borgin and Burkes. He specialized in persuading people to part with their treasures so the shop could resell them. He liked this job because it allowed him to come across significant magical objects. He managed to secure the locket of Slytherin (that had once belonged to his mother) and the cup of Helga Hufflepuff, framing the murder on the owner’s old house-elf. These were perfect to turn into Horcruxes. Voldemort wanted to use objects of powerful magical history because he believed anything associated with himself had to be great. He knew he would be legendary. He spent the next ten years probably delving deeper into the Dark Arts, experimenting with the boundaries of magic and finding yet other ways to cheat death (the physical changes were already showing). He had already started a group of followers called the Death Eaters. The group had followed him from when they were students at Hogwarts. He resurfaced to once more ask for the Defense Against the Dark Arts teaching position. The castle was a wealth of magic and the idea of influencing young minds was appealing to him. Dumbledore, then the headmaster, refused him. If he had wanted to find another object in which to seal part of his soul, he would have to do without. Hogwarts has never been able to keep a DADA professor for more than a year ever since the refusal.

    It would be many more years before Voldemort felt he was ready to openly recruit followers in his quest for power. His ideals were popular among the pure-blooded and power hungry. His Death Eaters reveled in the Dark Arts and the freedom to practice them on Muggles. By this time, an opposition had arisen against them. Voldemort requested one of his Death Eaters, Severus Snape, get a position at Hogwarts so that he could spy on Dumbledore. Snape obligingly sought out an interview and in the process got something more valuable. He overheard a foretelling of the birth of one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord. Voldemort was very interested to hear this; unfortunately, Snape did not hear the end of the prophecy. The prophecy could be applicable to two boys born that July; Voldemort decided that Harry Potter, a half-blood like himself, was more of a threat. Snape eventually did get hired by Hogwarts and became a double agent. Another spy, Peter Pettigrew (“Wormtail”), turned over the Potters’ location to Voldemort, and he set out to kill them on Halloween night in ’81. He killed the husband before offering the wife freedom if she left the baby. She refused, so he killed her too. Unfortunately, that apparently set in effect an ancient magic. When Voldemort used the Killing Curse on the infant, her sacrifice caused the curse to rebound off the boy and back at himself. Though his body was gone, the Dark Lord still existed somewhere courtesy of the measures he took to evade death.

    Lord Voldemort was unheard from for over a decade, and most of the wizarding world were convinced he was gone. Some of his Death Eaters were sent to prison, others denied serving him. It was not until he came upon Quirrell, who would be the new DADA professor at Hogwarts, that he had a chance to return to the corporeal world. He shared Quirrell’s body that year and forced him to drink unicorn blood. They attempted to steal the Sorcerer’s/Philosopher’s Stone so he could use the Elixir of Life; however, they were thwarted once again by Harry Potter and his mother’s sacrificial remnants. Voldemort left Quirrell to die and hoped for another opportunity to appear. He resorted to possessing snakes, but that was only a short-term solution. Unknown to him, an old Death Eater, Lucius Malfoy, positioned his old diary in Hogwarts to reopen the Chamber of Secrets. The scheme was nearly successful in bringing his 16-year-old self out of the diary and into the modern world, but yet again Potter stopped it and destroyed the diary and, along with it, a piece of his soul. Finally in ’94, he was found in the Black Forest of Albania by Wormtail, incompetent but lucky. Wormtail brought him a Ministry witch with useful information. Through her, the Dark Lord learned that one of his most faithful servants, Bartemius Crouch, Jr., was still alive. He positioned him at Hogwarts under orders to send the Potter boy to him to carry out a ritual to get his body back. The Dark Lord at that time resembled a crouched human child, hairless and scaly. Blind and limbs feeble, he needed Wormtail to tend to him while they waited in his father’s old home. Frank Bryce, the Muggle gardener who had been suspected of killing the Riddles, happened upon them. Voldemort killed him on the spot, possibly using him to create his seventh Horcrux in Nagini, his pet snake. He believed 7 was a powerful magical number and the perfect way to split his soul. In June ’95, Crouch delivered Potter as promised and Wormtail executed the potion. It required blood from his enemy (Potter), bone from his father (so they did it at the graveyard) and flesh from a servant (Wormtail cut his own hand off). The resurrection was a complete success and Voldemort had a brand new body. He barely even resembled a human anymore; his nose was flat like a snake with slits for nostrils, red eyes also in slits and white, spidery fingers.

    Now able to perform magic, his Death Eaters were restored to him. He challenged Potter to a duel, just to show off how he was the superior wizard. They were astonished to discover that they had brother wands, which caused the Reverse Spell Effect when they connected. Potter managed to escape because of this. The Ministry refused to believe Potter’s story, so Voldemort took advantage of it and laid low until he knew how to proceed. He decided he had to hear the complete prophecy to find out just what he was up against. Since it could only be retrieved by either him or Potter, he lured Potter to the Department of Mysteries at the Ministry to get it. He had realized that the scar he had left on Potter so many years ago actually formed a connection between their minds. His servants were sent to make sure the plan was successful, but they disappointed him. Not only was the prophecy lost to him forever, but also most of his elite Death Eaters were captured. He showed up at the Ministry himself and battled with Dumbledore. Now exposed to the public, he set about to create chaos. The dementors of Azkaban entered his service, his Death Eaters were killing and causing Muggle disasters and he threatened to unleash a malicious werewolf, Fenrir Greyback, on the children of those who would not cooperate. The Dark Lord then ordered the death of Albus Dumbledore.

    Albus Dumbledore is widely proclaimed to be the greatest wizard in modern times. Exceptionally intelligent, yet remarkably eccentric, his reputation is at times controversial. It is difficult to deny his power, though those who want it certainly try. Dumbledore has a long history with Hogwarts School—first as a student, then as the Transfiguration teacher and later as the Headmaster. He always seems to know what goes on around the castle. Dumbledore was the one who arranged for Tom Riddle to attend Hogwarts; though he suspected there was something off about the boy, he hoped for the best. One of Dumbledore’s few weaknesses is his tendency to trust that the good side of people will win out. Unfortunately, he soon realized that he was wrong about Riddle and made sure to keep a close eye on him. Dumbledore was unable to stop Riddle from opening the Chamber of Secrets and causing the death of a student, but his mistrust kept Riddle from doing anything more at the school after that.

    In 1945, Dumbledore defeated the dark wizard Grindelwald. He was offered the job of Minister of Magic several times, but he refused and was made Headmaster of Hogwarts around 1956. Riddle disappeared for years, then reemerged as Lord Voldemort, with only few knowing his original identity. He had asked Dumbledore for a position at Hogwarts, but Dumbledore firmly refused. When it was clear that Voldemort was unmercifully killing and causing destruction, Dumbledore founded the Order of the Phoenix to fight him and his followers. Even after so long, he remained the one person Voldemort feared. That is, until a prophecy was made that one would soon be born who had the power to defeat the Dark Lord. Dumbledore heard this prophecy when he was interviewing Sybill Trelawney for the Divination position. Severus Snape overheard the conversation and reported it to his master, being the good Death Eater that he was. Voldemort decided it was young Harry Potter that the prophecy referred to and set out to kill him. The Potters were members of the Order, and Dumbledore offered to be their Secret Keeper when they went into hiding. Unfortunately, they chose to use one of their friends, who ultimately betrayed them. Snape presumably regretted his involvement and went to Dumbledore for redemption. Apparently trusting him, Dumbledore hired him as the Potions Master at Hogwarts and asked him to become a double agent. After Voldemort’s attempt to murder Harry backfired and caused him to seemingly vanish from the world, the wizarding world rejoiced before returning to peace.

    However, Albus Dumbledore did not believe for a second that Voldemort was completely dead. He sent Harry to live with his Muggle relatives and put a magical protection over him. When Harry started school at Hogwarts, Dumbledore had a dilemma on his hands: when to tell Harry about the prophecy? It would take him years to work up the will to do it. Meanwhile, Harry developed a habit of getting himself in trouble. Dumbledore had previously partnered with Nicolas Flamel, who was the only known maker of the Sorcerer’s/Philosopher’s Stone. Knowing Voldemort would want it in his quest for immortality, Dumbledore decided to protect it inside Hogwarts. It seemed that Harry really was destined to go up against Voldemort, as he did it in his very first year trying to keep the Stone safe. The next year, the Chamber of Secrets was reopened and several students were petrified; the board of governors removed Dumbledore from school with an Order of Suspension. Luckily, since Harry remained loyal to Dumbledore, he was sent help in the form of Fawkes, the phoenix, and the sword of Gryffindor when he went into the Chamber. But even Dumbledore is not powerful enough to protect Harry all the time. During the Tri-Wizard Tournament, Harry was transported off Hogwarts grounds along with fellow student Cedric Diggory and put at the mercy of Lord Voldemort. Harry survived; Cedric did not. This also led to Voldemort’s return to physical form and power. Dumbledore would spend the next year trying to inform the wizarding world of the danger, but he would constantly be contradicted by the stubborn Ministry of Magic. He also reformed the Order of the Phoenix in preparation of the coming peril. Finally, things came to a head with a battle at the Ministry. Harry and his friends had been lured there by Voldemort, who hoped that he could trick Harry into obtaining the prophecy for him (as he had never heard it in its entirety). Dumbledore went to rescue them and ended up dueling with Voldemort himself. At this point, Dumbledore had no choice but to tell Harry about the prophecy. He admitted that his reasoning was flawed, since it had taken him until the end of Harry’s fifth year to come out with it. Dumbledore had begun to care so much about Harry that he could not bear to deliver the crushing news to one so young. He had tried to shelter Harry for so long, but he realized it was past time for Harry to come into his own. So over the course of the next year, Dumbledore passed to Harry all the information he had on how to defeat Voldemort, explaining that he used Horcruxes to hinder his death. He had already destroyed one earlier that year, reducing his wand arm to a shriveled, black mess. He understood that Harry was the only one who would be able to defeat Voldemort in the end. Still, he tried to help for as long as he could right up until he was murdered (an event that had been in the works all year). He had known Voldemort had ordered a student, Draco Malfoy, to kill him, but Dumbledore did nothing for fear of Draco’s own safety. Dumbledore, weakened from a Horcrux retrieval excursion, was shockingly killed by Snape, whom he had trusted implicitly. Though his love for people may have (to Voldemort’s delight) brought on his death, Dumbledore firmly believed that love, more powerful than any magic, would be what would save Harry in the end.

    Dedalus Diggle celebrated Voldemort’s downfall with what the Muggles thought were “shooting stars.” He is a tiny man with a violet top hat and lives in Kent. He once met Harry Potter in the street and bowed to him. He later met him again in the Leaky Cauldron in ’91; he was ecstatic when Harry remembered him. When he gets excited, he squeaks and drops his top hat. As a member of the Order of the Phoenix, Dedalus volunteered to be part of the Advanced Guard to transport Harry Potter from his Muggle relatives’ home to Order headquarters.

    Hagrid, Rubeus Hagrid, Rubeus
    Born:December 6, 1928
    Rubeus Hagrid is the son of a wizard and a giantess, Fridwulfa. Being a half-giant makes him twice as tall and five times as wide as a normal person. He has long tangles of bushy black hair and beard and eyes like black beetles. His hands are the size of trash can lids, and his feet are like baby dolphins. He wears a black moleskin overcoat, and his best suit is a horrible hairy brown suit and a checked yellow and orange tie. His mother left him when he was about three. When he was six, he could pick up his dad and put him on a dresser. His father died in his 2nd year at school.

    Hagrid has always had a tendency to find extremely dangerous creatures extremely loveable. He is big and blundering and gets in trouble every other week. While he was in school, he supposedly tried to raise werewolf cubs (baby Remuses?) under his bed and would sneak off to the Forbidden Forest to wrestle trolls. In his third year, he brought a young acromantula, Aragog, into the castle. Tom Riddle framed Hagrid by turning him in and calling the large spider the monster of the Chamber of Secrets. Albus Dumbledore did not believe Hagrid was guilty, so he convinced them not to throw Hagrid into Azkaban. He also let Hagrid stay at Hogwarts and train as gamekeeper after he was expelled. However, Hagrid’s wand (16 inches, oak, rather bendy) had been snapped, and he carries a battered, flowery pink umbrella with his wand pieces inside so he can do magic on the sly.

    So Hagrid has been at Hogwarts ever since as the Keeper of Keys and Grounds. He lives in a small wooden house on the edge of the Forbidden Forest with his pet boarhound, Fang. He was the one who recovered Harry Potter from the ruins of his parents’ house after Voldemort tried to kill him in 1981. While Hagrid was there, Sirius Black, the Potters’ best friend, showed up and offered Hagrid his flying motorcycle to deliver Harry to Dumbledore quicker. Ten years later, he was sent to retrieve Harry again when it became clear that Harry’s Hogwarts acceptance letters were not being read. Hagrid was enraged to discover that Harry’s Muggle relatives had not told him about magic. He took it upon himself to take Harry to get his school stuff from Diagon Alley and even got him an owl for his birthday. He would become good friends with Harry and his friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.

    That year, Hagrid contributed a huge 3-headed dog, Fluffy, to protect the Sorcerer’s/Philosopher’s Stone. However, he would give the secret to taming it away while gambling for a dragon’s egg. Since he couldn’t keep the dragon, Norbert, at Hogwarts, he was forced to send it away to Romania. In ’92, the Chamber of Secrets was opened again and Hagrid, being the supposed culprit the first time, was sent to Azkaban until he was proved innocent. The following school year, Hagrid became the Care of Magical Creatures teacher. He enjoys showing his classes dangerous creatures that he finds interesting but the students find terrifying. He got in trouble when a student, Draco Malfoy, did not pay attention and insulted a hippogriff, which then attacked him. To Hagrid’s horror, the hippogriff, Buckbeak, was sentenced to death but luckily escaped. In ’94, Hagrid met another half-giant, Olympe Maxime; they got together after she finally stopped denying her giant heritage. Hagrid got a lot of grief because of his lineage and lack of education when Hogwarts got a High Inquisitor, Dolores Umbridge. Umbridge tried to send Hagrid away, but he fought off the Aurors she brought and went into hiding in the mountains.

    Hagrid is a member of the Order of the Phoenix. He was sent on a mission with Madame Maxime to establish diplomatic ties with the giants in the name of the Order. The mission was unsuccessful when Death Eaters showed up for some diplomacies of their own. While there he met his half-brother, Grawp. Fearing the bigger giants were bullying him, Hagrid was determined to bring Grawp home with him to be safe and eventually domesticated, prolonging his journey for two months. Hagrid arrived back at Hogwarts bruised and bloodied, and continued so during his futile endeavors. Grawp did at least showed he that knew who Hagrid was by the end of a year.

    Black, Sirius "Padfoot" "Snuffles" Black, Sirius "Padfoot" "Snuffles"
    Sirius Black ran away from home when he was 16. His parents were pure-blood extremists, and he could not stand living with them. His brother, Regulus, fulfilled all their family’s wishes by proving his ideals and becoming a Death Eater. He died soon afterwards when he got in too far. Sirius stayed with his best friend, James Potter, for awhile; James’ parents practically adopted him. However, Sirius did not want to burden them, so he got his own pad at 17 after inheriting money from his Uncle Alphard.

    At school, Sirius was one of the brightest students, but he was also one of the most mischievous. He was handsome and popular, making him arrogant for much of his youth. Sirius was the first Black to not be in Slytherin House. He and James had a mutual hatred of Severus Snape. One of his friends, Remus Lupin, turned out to be a werewolf. When they found this out, Sirius, James and Peter Pettigrew worked for three years to become unregistered Animagi in order to keep Remus company when he transformed. Sirius could turn into an enormous, pale-eyed, jet-black dog going by the name “Padfoot.” The four friends would roam the school grounds on nights of the full moon. They ended up learning so much about Hogwarts that they created the Marauder’s Map, a clever magical parchment that showed all the secret passages. One night, Sirius baited Snape to go into the Whomping Willow to see where Remus went every month. Snape would have been killed if James hadn’t stopped him.

    Sirius was the best man at James and Lily’s wedding. They also made him the Godfather of their son, Harry. When Voldemort went after the Potters, they had to go into hiding and James insisted on Sirius being their Secret-Keeper. The official story was that Sirius had been in league with Voldemort the whole time and betrayed the Potters’ whereabouts. Then when Peter confronted him, Sirius blew him up along with a dozen Muggles. He was sent to Azkaban without a trial and stayed there for 12 years, one of the most heavily guarded prisoners with dementors outside his door day and night. The real story is that he convinced Peter to become the Secret-Keeper at the last minute, thinking no one would suspect him. To Sirius’ shock, he showed up at Godric’s Hollow that Halloween night to the remains of a house. Rubeus Hagrid had rescued young Harry from the ruins and had orders to deliver him to Albus Dumbledore. At first, Sirius had wanted to take Harry himself, but then realized a baby wouldn’t be safe for what he was planning to do. He offered Hagrid his flying motorbike, which would allow him to travel faster. The following morning, Sirius went on a hunt for Peter. Peter had other ideas; he enacted a ruse to frame Sirius and blew up the street while turning into his Animagus form, a rat, to escape detection. Taken aback that the boy he had always considered the least intelligent of them all turned out to be the one fooling everyone, all Sirius could do was laugh manically at the irony. He did not even try to fight the Ministry when they threw him in prison.

    Determined to one day take revenge on Peter, Sirius bided his time in Azkaban until Peter showed his face. He survived by transforming into his dog form, as animals have less complex emotions and were therefore less affected by the dementors. He had a mass of filthy, matted hair down to elbows; deep, dark eye sockets; waxy, stretched skin and yellow teeth. In 1993, Sirius saw “Wormtail” (Peter’s rat nickname) in a photo in the Daily Prophet. When he realized Peter was posing as the pet of Ron Weasley, who went to school with Harry, Sirius knew it was time to go after him. So he transformed into a dog, skinny enough to slip through the bars and swam ashore. Everyone thought he was going after Harry, and Sirius had spent too much time around dementors to think rationally. Though he couldn’t resist checking up on his godson anyway. Once reaching Hogwarts, he made friends with a cat, Crookshanks, who tried to help him get Wormtail. After many months and attempts, Sirius finally caught Wormtail and dragged him and Ron, who was holding him, under the Whomping Willow and into the Shrieking Shack. Remus, who was teaching at Hogwarts, followed and helped explain to Harry and his friends who the rat was and what had really happened to his parents. Unfortunately, Peter ended up escaping and left Sirius still wanted by the Ministry. Harry and his friends helped him escape by sending him off with Buckbeak, a hippogriff.

    Sirius and Buckbeak went into hiding, but kept in touch with Harry and Dumbledore, who now knew the truth. He lived in a cave in the mountains near Hogwarts, living off rats, to be near Harry. He had cleaned up a bit, with short black hair and a fuller face. Sirius was worried about Harry being in danger and gave him advice on surviving the Triwizard Tournament. When Voldemort made his return, Sirius partially came out of hiding to rejoin the Order of the Phoenix. Unfortunately, he was still wanted by the Ministry (10,000 Galleon reward), so he had to stay inside Grimmauld Place, which he offered as headquarters for the Order. Sirius started getting cabin fever and reminiscing over his freer days. He began treating Harry more like James than a godson. He mistreated the crazy house-elf, Kreacher, who ended up betraying him. When he found out Harry was in danger, Sirius recklessly went to rescue him. He became overconfident when dueling with his cousin, Bellatrix Lestrange, and laughed off her curses. Not literally, of course, because they hit him and knocked him right through the veil in the Death Room. Ending the Black line, he left all of his estate to Harry.

    Marjorie Dursley is Vernon Dursley’s sister, also known as Aunt Marge. She looks very similar to her brother: large, beefy and purple-faced, though her mustache is not quite as bushy. She is loud and obnoxious when drunk (then again, she’s like that when she’s not drunk—or perhaps she’s always drunk). Marge lives in the country in a house with a large garden so she can breed bulldogs. She has twelve dogs; her favorite, Ripper, travels with her. She has a friend, Colonel Fubster, who she uses as a dog sitter. Marge is fond of her nephew, Dudley, because he is a ‘proper-sized’ boy and often slips him money. However, she does not like Harry Potter at all and sees him as an ungrateful freeloader. She visited Little Whinging in the summer of ’93, when she made the mistake of insulted Harry’s parents. He was so infuriated that he inadvertently inflated her like a balloon. The Accidental Magic Reversal Department had to puncture her and modify her memory.

    Arabella Doreen Figg has grizzled gray hair in a hairnet. Even though she is a Squib, she is a member of the Order of the Phoenix. She guarded Harry Potter while he grew up with his Muggle relatives since she lived just two streets away in Little Whinging. Her house smells like cabbage, and she has at least four cats (Tibbles, Snowy, Mr. Paws & Tufty). She carries a clanking string shopping bag and wears tartan carpet slippers. Harry usually stayed at her house whenever the Dursleys need a babysitter, but under orders she never told him who she was or about magic. Arabella’s leg was broken in 1991. Sirius Black alerted her to Voldemort’s resurrection in ’95. That summer, she witnessed Harry and his cousin being attacked by dementors but could do nothing to help. She testified about the incident when Harry was tried for using magic in front of a Muggle.

    Cornelius Oswald Fudge is a portly, little man with rumpled, gray hair and small feet. He normally wears a pinstriped bottle-green suit, scarlet tie, long black cloak, pointed purple boots and a lime-green bowler that he twirls in his hands when nervous. He was the Minister of Magic until 1996; prior to becoming Minister, Fudge was Junior Minister in the Department of Magical Catastrophes. He became Minister over Bartemius Crouch, whom the public lost confidence in after his son was revealed to be a Death Eater. Fudge used to ask Albus Dumbledore for advice every day until he got it into his head that Dumbledore was after his job. When Dumbledore and Harry Potter began claiming that Voldemort had returned in 1995, Fudge just refused to believe them. He had enough to deal with without their nonsense. He used the Daily Prophet to circulate rumors saying Dumbledore had lost his mind and made it clear that anyone supporting Dumbledore had no place in the Ministry. He did the same thing with Potter and hoped to discredit him further by expelling him from school for defending himself against Dementors. Fudge wanted more control over Hogwarts and passed many decrees throughout the year to get it. He stationed a Ministry official, Dolores Umbridge, at the school as the DADA professor. Umbridge got progressively more power as she became the High Inquisitor and then interim Headmistress. They did not allow the students to actually perform any spells in DADA because Fudge was afraid Dumbledore would use them to form an army against the Ministry. It was not until he was faced with Voldemort in the Ministry itself that he was forced to admit the truth. By that time, however, he had wasted an entire year insisting to the public that they were safe and preoccupied with foolish worries about losing his job. So of course, the magical community screamed for his resignation. Fudge was removed from office in July of ’96, but he stayed on in an advisory capacity, mainly filling the Muggle Prime Minister in on current events.

    Quirrel, Prof. Quirrel, Prof.
    Professor Quirrell was a pale young man who had a brilliant mind. He excelled when studying out of books, so he took a year off to get first-hand experience. People say that he met vampires in the Black Forest and had trouble with a hag and had never been the same since. He seemed scared of both his subject (Defense Against the Dark Arts) and his students. However, it turned out to all be an act. Before his term at Hogwarts (1991-92), Quirrell entered Lord Voldemort’s service. He met him on his travels and was enlightened about the strength that power gives. He allowed Voldemort to share his body; he wore a large, purple turban to hide Voldemort’s face on the back of his head. Quirrell spent the whole year trying to get the Sorcerer’s/Philosopher’s Stone for his master and drinking unicorn’s blood to appease him in the meantime. No one suspected him because he always seemed so timid and spoke with a stutter. He came very close to getting the Stone, but he was ultimately thwarted by an 11 year-old Harry Potter, whose mother’s sacrificial protection burned Quirrell whenever he tried to touch Harry. Voldemort fled Quirrell’s body and left him to die. Quirrell is the only DADA teacher that the Ministry of Magic would have approved of (idiots that they are).

    Occlumens

    Draco Malfoy is the son of proud parents Lucius and Narcissa. He takes after his parents in doing their duty to put down all who are poor, virtuous and have questionable lineage. Draco loves to make snide comments and sneer at those he does not like. He has especial hatred for Harry “Scarface” Potter, Hermione “Mudblood” Granger and Ron “Weasel” Weasley for various reasons. Not that he spends much of his time bothering with them—they’re much too beneath him for that. Draco surrounds himself with more suitable company, like Vincent Crabbe and Gregory Goyle, and Pansy Parkinson to simper over him, of course.

    Athletic and brilliant, Draco is the star of the Quidditch team and top of his year (at least, out of the ones who count). It’s just that sometimes those lowlifes still allowed in school for some reason beat him by cheating and favoritism. No matter, Draco knows what the important things in life are. He was eager to help the heir of Slytherin purify the school through the Chamber of Secrets, until he found out it was a blood traitor weaselette. He was well liked by the High Inquisitor during her brief term at Hogwarts; she relied heavily on him to perform important duties. When that fame hog Potter had the audacity to land his father in prison, it was up to Draco to uphold the family name. He would serve the Dark Lord proudly and faultlessly. He became a Death Eater at just 16 years old and was entrusted with a most important mission: kill Albus Dumbledore. Draco had always detested Dumbledore’s stance on Mudbloods, so he was determined not to disappoint his master. His Aunt Bellatrix even taught him Occlumency. There were several missteps, and a fight with Potter left him slashed, but he recovered. Though Draco knew he was clever enough to get it done, it took him the entire school year. He repaired the Vanishing Cabinet at Hogwarts allowing other Death Eaters into the school to help dispatch Dumbledore. The Mudblood herself had unknowingly assisted him with ideas. Despite Draco’s swagger, the work took its toll on him, and by the end, he wasn’t quite sure he could commit murder with his own hands. Fulfilling the Unbreakable Vow he made to Draco’s mother, Severus Snape finished the task by killing Dumbledore. Draco fled the castle, but may still face the wrath of the Dark Lord for failing to do the job.

    Malfoy, Lucius Malfoy, Lucius
    House:Slytherin
    Born:1953 or 1954
    Appearance:Pale, pointed face
    White-blonde hair
    Cold, gray eyes

    Lucius Malfoy is a very shrewd businessman. He knows how to pull the right strings and pad the right pockets to get what he wants done. He makes connections and contributions in the Ministry of Magic to get favors and delay laws he doesn’t want passed. He’ll make donations to St. Mungo’s to show his goodwill. He strategically positioned himself as a school governor of Hogwarts, so he could have some clout there, too. To the public, he is a generous, distinguished wizard from an old family.

    In the privacy of his own home, Lucius is a subscriber to the Dark Arts and a top Death Eater. He believes that blood tells you everything you need to know about a person. Pure-bloods are the only respectable ones, Mudbloods are filth and Muggles don’t deserve to live. So it is not a surprise that he is a loyal follower of the Dark Lord, who permitted the sport of Muggle-torture. However, when his master disappeared, seemingly for good, Lucius did what any smart opportunist would do, he claimed innocence. What good would suffering consequences do if there was no reward? So Lucius pretended he never went down the Dark Side and returned to the world of political manipulation.

    In 1992, Lucius put into operation a remnant of the Dark Lord’s belongings, a diary from his days at Hogwarts. He slipped it into the hands of an unsuspecting 11 year old girl, Ginny Weasley, and sat back to watch as havoc unfolded when the Chamber of Secrets opened at Hogwarts once more. The plan disappointingly backfired when the meddlesome Harry Potter destroyed the diary. Lucius and some of his old Death Eater buddies got drunk and celebrated old times with some good Muggle-torture at the ’94 Quidditch World Cup. They were shocked when the Dark Mark appeared in the sky. After that, it was only a matter of time; in June, Lucius felt the familiar burning on his left arm that told him to rejoin his master. He spent the next year working on the Dark Lord’s undertaking to retrieve a prophecy from the Department of Mysteries. Lucius tried using the Imperius Curse on a Department worker, Broderick Bode, but he was unable to take it. Finally, they had to lure the Potter boy to the Ministry and trick him into grabbing it for them. Sadly, the Death Eaters were overmatched having to deal with not only Potter and his little friends, but with interfering members of the Order of the Phoenix and eventually Albus Dumbledore himself. Lucius was captured and thrown into Azkaban to the extreme displeasure of the Dark Lord for his failure.

    House:Slytherin
    Appearance:Blonde, tall and slim
    Would be nice looking if she were not wearing a look that suggested there was a nasty smell under her nose

    Narcissa is a descendent of the Black line along with her sisters, Bellatrix and Andromeda. Unlike Andromeda, Narcissa married a respectable, wealthy, pure-blood wizard, Lucius Malfoy. Being from the noble and ancient house of Black, she holds most of the same values as her husband. However, for Narcissa, her family is more important to her than the Dark Lord’s plans. Lucius, being in the inner circle of Death Eaters, was caught and imprisoned in ’96, leaving her to deal with the repercussions of being exposed as a Dark supporter. After losing her husband, she was horrified when she learned the Dark Lord intended to put her only son, Draco, on a dangerous assignment. Narcissa knew it was a punishment for Lucius’s slip-up and that he would not care if Draco died in the process. So she risked the wrath of the Dark Lord by going to another Death Eater she trusted, Severus Snape, to ask him to protect her son. Snape promised her he would with an Unbreakable Vow.

    Ollivander is an old man with wide, pale, silvery and misty eyes that shine like moons. He runs Ollivanders: Makers of Fine Wands since 382 B.C. in Diagon Alley. He remembers every wand he has ever made and sold. Ollivander was the wand specialist appointed to test the wands of the champions in the 1994 Triwizard Tournament. He vanished from his store in the summer of ’96, probably at the hands of Death Eaters.

    Weasley, Molly (Prewett) Weasley, Molly (Prewett)
    House:Gryffindor
    Born:October 30, 19??
    Appearance:Short, plump, kind-faced woman. Dumpy.
    Fear(s):The death of her family + Harry

    Before she was Molly Weasley, she was Molly Prewett. She was presumably related to Fabian and Gideon Prewett (exact relation unknown); both were murdered during the first war. With that history, it is not surprising how much she worries about her family in such dangerous times. As a mother of seven children, she puts the ‘molly’ in mollycoddle. She is unrelenting in her effort to make sure everyone is well fed, of which she is never satisfied. Molly can be overbearing at times and quite scary when she yells, but it is only because she cares so much.

    Molly got together with Arthur Weasley while at Hogwarts. She claims she made a love potion and once got caught wandering the castle with him at four in the morning. They got married around the time that Voldemort was gaining power. Since raising her seven active offspring, she has joined the Order of the Phoenix along with her husband and older sons. Her eldest son is engaged to Fleur Delacour, whom Molly did not think much of initially. Though horrified when a werewolf mauled Bill, the event did alleviate her fears about Fleur’s earnestness.

    Prefect
    Head Boy
    Occupation:Book 4: Dept. International Magical Cooperation Assistant
    Book 5: Junior Assistant to the Minister

    Percy Weasley is the third son of Arthur and Molly Weasley. Percy has always been different from his brothers and sister. Though his siblings are bright, they don’t put academics above all else. Percy prides himself on being serious and studious. He took his Prefect and Head Boy responsibilities very earnestly. He was often rewarded for his excellence with such things as new robes, his own owl, etc. Percy’s solemn nature and tendency to think higher of himself than others instigated some teasing from his siblings. In his sixth year, Percy began going out with Penelope Clearwater, a Ravenclaw Prefect a year behind him. He had a distressing year when she was petrified, and then his sister, Ginny, went through a life threatening ordeal.

    After graduating from Hogwarts, Percy promptly got a job at the Ministry of Magic as a department of International Magical Cooperation assistant. His work was more important to him than anything else, and he was determined to work his way up in the Ministry quickly. After only a year, Percy was promoted to Junior Assistant to the Minister, a fact which made him immensely proud. Such an important position requires, he firmly believed, that he completely support anything the Minister asserts. This caused a falling-out with his family, and he has been estranged from them the last two years. He had always felt alienated from his siblings as a child, and now he really is as none of them are ready to forgive him for what they see as a betrayal. The rift breaks his mother’s heart, but Percy stubbornly refuses to change his stance, even when proven wrong. He was forced to visit his family for Christmas in ’96 so the Minister of Magic could sneak a chat with Harry Potter.

    Fred Weasley and his twin brother, George, were born, appropriately enough, on April Fool’s day to Arthur and Molly. The twins are pranksters to the core, always looking for a laugh. These irrepressible troublemakers are the bane of Hogwarts caretaker Filch’s existence. In their very first year, they filched the Marauder’s Map from his office, through which they learned all the secret passages of Hogwarts. In their fifth year, they bequeathed the map to Harry Potter, having already memorized it. The two are nearly always together, both playing Beater for their Quidditch team.

    Though they appear to only fool around, Fred and George are really quite clever. They don’t care much about school other than what can help them invent joke products. After earning only 3 O.W.L.s apiece, they put their full efforts into developing items to start their own joke shop. These (and the eventual shop) were called Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes. The twins must have a solid grasp of magic to be able to create many of their innovations. They also have a surprising aptitude for business, using their last two years at Hogwarts to test their products among students and build up a market. The twins left their seventh year early with many a bang that will long be the stuff of Hogwarts legend.

    Harry had given the twins 1000 pounds to help start up their shop. This was enough for them to acquire a place in Diagon Alley and open up shop right away. Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes was an instant success, carrying a wide range of products. In addition to the prank items, the twins expanded with a more serious Defense Against the Dark Arts line. They have been looking into acquiring Zonko’s as a Hogsmeade branch.

    Ron Weasley is the last son born to Arthur and Molly Weasley. He has 5 older brothers and 1 younger sister. As the youngest son, Ron always feels as if it is impossible to live up to his older brothers’ achievements. He is also quite sensitive about his family’s modest resources. When he became best friends with the famous Harry Potter, he was thrust more than ever to the edge of the limelight. Ron does not have a lot of self-confidence, but he is extremely loyal to his friends. He is fiery, quick tempered and has an insatiable appetite.

    Though he doesn’t get much credit for it, Ron plays an important role by helping Harry undertake his adventures and, more importantly, by being his friend. He introduced Harry to many of the more fun aspects of the Wizarding world. Ron’s relationship with Hermione Granger, his other best friend, was rocky from the start. He routinely alternates between making her cry and dashing to her defense. Ron also has a talent for strategy; in his first year at Hogwarts, Ron was able to win a giant chess game orchestrated by Professor McGonagall.

    The next summer, Ron and his brothers, Fred & George, took their father’s flying car across the country to rescue Harry from his relatives. He and Harry later flew the car all the way to Hogwarts after missing the train. During the crash landing, Ron broke his wand, a hand-me-down from brother Charlie, leading to a year of backfired spells. It was just the beginning of a grim year. When Hermione was petrified, Ron faced his biggest fear by coming face to face with acromantulas (giant spiders) in hopes of helping his friend. Additionally, Ginny, Ron’s sister, was possessed and taken down into the Chamber of Secrets, feared to be dead. He went down there with Harry, but he was stuck at the entrance while Harry saved the day. Still, he received a Special Award for Services to the School for it.

    Afterwards, Ron’s family won the Daily Prophet Grand Prize Galleon Draw and celebrated by going to visit his eldest brother, Bill, in Egypt. Ron had inherited his older brother Percy’s pet rat, Scabbers, who had been with the family for twelve years. When Ron thought Hermione’s cat had eaten the rat, he was furious and refused to forgive her. Unknown to Ron, Scabbers was really a wizard named Peter Pettigrew in Animagus form. Pettigrew had betrayed Harry’s parents and framed Sirius Black for it. Set on revenge, Black went after Scabbers and broke Ron’s leg in the process. Ron was disgusted when he realized he had been harboring a Death Eater as his pet. Black apologized for injuring Ron by giving him a pet owl, Pigwidgeon.

    The following August was an exciting time for Ron, because the Quidditch World Cup was coming to England. He was in awe of the famous Bulgarian seeker, Viktor Krum. That is, however, until Krum became a Tri-Wizard Champion and asked Hermione to go to the Yule Ball, at which point Krum turned into a grouchy git. Ron was also disgruntled with Harry getting yet more attention as a Champion. He got some glory when he was a hostage for the 2nd task; otherwise, it was not Ron’s most enjoyable year. The year ended on a note of unease with the return of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, though Ron did score Krum’s autograph.

    As a result of the dangerous times, the Weasley family spent the summer at the headquarters for the Order of the Phoenix. Ron was stunned along with everyone else when he received his Prefect’s badge. He was even more ecstatic when his parents bought him a new broomstick as a reward. Though pleased with his appointment, Ron was less enthusiastic at the prospect of having to enforce rules. He achieved one of his fantasies when he made the Gryffindor Quidditch team as Keeper. Though his lack of confidence caused him to play horribly at first, Ron had a spectacular last game to help Gryffindor win the Quidditch cup. While accompanying Harry on the Department of Mysteries excursion, Ron suffered an unknown curse and an attack by tentacled brains.

    Year six was much of the same for Ron in terms of Quidditch and school. One major development, however, was when he got together with Lavender Brown. Put out over the fact that he was the only one who hadn’t gone out with anyone yet, he was delighted by Lavender’s interest in him. This caused a rift between Hermione and him that wasn’t mended until he almost died from a mistaken poisoning. To Ron’s relief, his relationship with Lavender did not last, and he was able to finally realize what he truly wanted. He and Hermione mourned the loss of Albus Dumbledore together.

    Ginny Weasley is the seventh and youngest child of Arthur and Molly Weasley. She is also the first girl to be born into the Weasley family for several generations. As such, Ginny often feels that her family is overprotective of her and treats her like a child. Since her brothers never let her play with them, she has had to break into the broom shed from the age of 6 in order to practice flying. Being the youngest, Ginny was upset about being left alone when the rest of her brothers went off to school. When she was 10, she and her family ran into the Boy Who Lived (Harry Potter), who immediately roused her interest. Ginny developed a huge crush on Harry over the following years, unable to act normally while in the same room with him.

    Going away to school for the first time is never easy, but it seemed like Ginny was destined to have a particularly horrible year. Lucius Malfoy snuck the old diary of Tom Riddle (Voldemort) into one of Ginny’s schoolbooks. With her brothers paying her little attention, Ginny dispelled her loneliness by writing in the diary, which she soon found could write back to her. What she did not know, however, was that little by little the memory of Riddle possessed her and caused her to unleash a monster upon the school. Eventually, Ginny suspected what was happening and tried to get rid of the diary, but it ended up in Harry’s hands, which was even worse. Finally, Riddle had possessed her enough that he was able to come out of the diary in a corporeal form and lure Harry down into the Chamber of Secrets. Luckily, Harry was able to defeat both Riddle and the monster to save Ginny’s life. Ginny has had to deal with the guilt and distrust ever since.

    For a nice change, Ginny spent the next couple of years quietly and normally. She still admired Harry from afar and was disappointed when she couldn’t go to the Yule Ball with him as she’d already promised to go with Neville Longbottom. It was at the ball, however, that Ginny finally realized that she needed to stop pining over Harry, hero though he was. She met Ravenclaw Michael Corner, whom she went out with for around a year. It was at this point that Ginny was able be herself around Harry and, consequently, actually get to know him and vice versa.

    Ginny came into her own in her fourth year. She took over the Seeker position on the Quidditch team when Harry couldn’t play and helped Gryffindor win the Cup once again. She was also one of the students who went with Harry on the fateful trip to the Department of Mysteries, during which she broke her ankle and took a stunner to the face. Still, Ginny showed that she could hold her own and was not one to back down from a fight.

    The year after that, Ginny shifted over to Chaser with Harry back on the team. She excelled at the position, but reverted to Seeker for the final game when Harry was out. Again, Ginny helped bring the Quidditch Cup to Gryffindor. She had been going out with Dean Thomas for much of the year, but by the end, Harry had finally come to his senses. Harry and Ginny spent a happy few weeks together before the war with Voldemort interrupted them.

    Neville Longbottom was born in late July of 1981 to Frank and Alice Longbottom. His time of birth and parentage qualified him as a possible candidate in the prophecy made about the Dark Lord. Luckily for him, Harry Potter became the chosen one instead. However, he was not unscathed by the war what with his father having the dangerous job of being an Auror. After Voldemort disappeared, Frank was tortured for information on his whereabouts by Bartemius Crouch Jr. and the Lestranges. When Frank would not or could not tell them anything, they tortured his wife too. Both are now at St. Mungo’s, insane from prolonged exposure to the Cruciatus Curse. Neville never really knew them, as he was only an infant at the time.

    Neville was raised by his grandmother and presumably his grandfather, before his death. For a long time, his family was afraid that Neville was a Squib because he had not shown any signs of magic. They would test him by putting him in danger, but nothing happened until he was eight years old. His Great Uncle Algie dropped him out of an upstairs window, but Neville just bounced down the road. They were very pleased when he got into Hogwarts.

    Sadly, Neville’s Gran misses her son so much that she often takes it out on Neville. It would be nearly impossible for him to live up to his father, who died courageously. Unfortunately, his Gran wants nothing short of him being exactly like his father, even to the point of making him use Frank’s old wand. The consequence of this is extremely low self-esteem for Neville. He stumbles through most of his classes because he is so nervous about messing up. Though he found that he had an affinity for Herbology. He can also be quite forgetful. Still, he was put into Gryffindor house for a reason. In his first year, he stood up to his friends (Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley) in hopes of stopping them from getting in trouble. As he became better friends with them, Neville got more involved and determined to improve his defensive skills. Being a member of the DA helped very much. By his fifth year, he had the courage to stand with Harry and fight Death Eaters at the Department of Mysteries, suffering a broken nose in the process. It also gave him a chance to see Bellatrix Lestrange, the woman who tortured his parents to the point of insanity, face to face. Since he could not speak properly with his broken nose, Neville was unable to carry out revenge; it merely gave Bellatrix the opportunity to Crucio him as well. However, the bravery of being at the battle was not lost on his Gran. She was not even upset that he had broken his father’s wand. The following year, Professor Slughorn invited Neville to the first Slug Club meeting on the train. When Death Eaters invaded Hogwarts at the end of his sixth year, Neville once again stood alongside his friends and the Order of the Phoenix. Despite being injured in the battle, he still tried to follow the Death Eaters up the Astronomy Tower only to be thrown back by a magical barrier. Neville and Luna Lovegood had been the only ones to respond to the call for help as the DA had meant the most to them.

    Longbottom, Mrs. Augusta "Gran" Longbottom, Mrs. Augusta "Gran"
    Augusta Longbottom is the mother of Frank and grandmother of Neville. She is a formidable-looking woman with a rather bony nose and likes to wear a pointed hat decorated with a stuffed vulture on top. She wears long dresses and gloves and carries a huge, crimson handbag. Augusta can be pretty hard on Neville, because she wishes he were more like his father, who had been a popular Auror before being tortured to the point of insanity. The way she raised and treats Neville is not very positive and may even border on passive verbal abuse. While it is understandable that she misses her son, she should be proud of her grandson, who is quite a good person in his own right. Her criticisms likely do more harm than help. Augusta is starting to appreciate him more as Neville grows into his own, though she still tends to hold him to certain standards. She claims that Charms is a soft subject, leaving out the fact that she failed her own Charms O.W.L. However, Augusta is for the most part a good witch; she supported Albus Dumbledore and Harry Potter when the Daily Prophet was slandering them. She is a friend of Griselda Marchbanks.

    Appearance:Long red hair in ponytail.
    Tall. Cool.
    Fang earring. Dragon hide boots.

    Bill Weasley is the oldest of Arthur and Molly’s children. Not only was he good looking and trendy but an excellent student as well. This Head Boy received 12 O.W.L.s. Always after adventure and glamour, he became a Curse Breaker for Gringotts’ Egypt branch. He came back home for the Quidditch World Cup and to watch Harry in the Tri-Wizard Tournament in 1994. Once it was known that Voldemort had returned, he applied for a desk job so he could stay in England and help the Order of the Phoenix. As an employee of Gringotts, Bill was able to keep in touch with the goblins about taking sides in the war. During the battle at Hogwarts in 1997, Bill was mauled by Fenrir Greyback, a werewolf (though in human form at the time). The scars on his face are cursed and will likely never fade. He is engaged to Fleur Delacour, and they are expected to wed in the summer of ’97.

    Weasley, Charlie Weasley, Charlie
    House:Gryffindor
    Born:December 12, 1967? 1972?
    Appearance:Short and stocky. A broad, good-natured face, which was weather beaten and so freckly that he looked almost tan. Muscular arms.

    Charlie Weasley is the second son of Arthur and Molly. Even though he was a prefect, he had to take his Apparition test twice when he apparated 5 miles south of where he meant to go. Charlie was a Seeker and Quidditch captain. One of the greatest Gryffindor had, Charlie could have played for England if he had wanted to. However, Charlie loved animals and went off to Romania to work with dragons. Living so far away from his family has made him independent; he even darns his own fireproof balaclava. When Voldemort returned to power, Charlie joined the Order of the Phoenix and contributed by making foreign contacts on his off days.

    Pettigrew, Peter "Wormtail" "Scabbers" Pettigrew, Peter "Wormtail" "Scabbers"
    Born: 1958?

    Peter Pettigrew was short and fat with mousy hair. Having a pointed nose and very small, watery eyes, Peter became friends with James Potter, Sirius Black and Remus Lupin. He was always seen as the weak tag along, hanging around with the cool boys. James and Sirius were popular; Remus was a werewolf. When they found out about Remus, Peter, James and Sirius spent several years learning to become Animagi so they could keep him company. Peter managed to transform himself into a rat and called himself “Wormtail.” He was the one in charge of pushing the button on the Whomping Willow during their excursions. The four of them learned so much about Hogwarts that they developed the Marauder’s Map.

    His friends, however, had underestimated him. Though Peter was a member of the Order of the Phoenix with the rest of them, he was also a Death Eater and would leak information. No one ever suspected him. When James and his family went into hiding from the Dark Lord, Sirius was supposed to be their Secret-Keeper. Except Sirius thought that Peter would be a better choice because no one would ever think of him. So Peter became the Secret-Keeper and had the privilege of betraying their whereabouts to his master. Maybe he was weak for following the power, but Peter was smarter than his friends had thought. When Sirius hunted him down, Peter was one step ahead of him. He acted like he was the one going after Sirius and blew up the street while turning into his rat form. He cut off his right index finger to fake his death. Everyone thought Sirius had betrayed the Potters and then killed Peter for getting in his way.

    So while Sirius spent the next twelve years in Azkaban, Peter spent the time as “Scabbers,” a pet rat in a wizarding family. He began as Percy Weasley’s pet, but he was later passed on to another brother, Ron. His plan was supposedly to stay close to the magical world in case any word of his master arose, but he mostly enjoyed being a rat. He even helped Ron by biting a bully for him. However, Scabbers got himself in trouble when he posed on Ron’s shoulder for a picture in the Daily Prophet in ’93. Sirius recognized him (he’s missing a toe in rat form too) and broke out of Azkaban to go after him. Scabbers was terrified of being found and began losing fur in his agitation. Taking advantage of Ron’s friend getting a pet cat, Crookshanks, Scabbers eventually faked his own ratty death again. He had perfect timing, because Sirius tried to attack two days later. Scabbers went to hide in a milk jug in gamekeeper Hagrid’s cabin. He was found and immediately pounced upon by Padfoot, Sirius’s Animagus counterpart. Sirius and Remus, who was also at Hogwarts, explained the situation to a very confused Ron, Harry (James’s son) and their friend, Hermione Granger. The now thin, colorless and balding Peter begged them for mercy. Harry kept Sirius and Remus from killing the rat-like man because he did not want them to become killers, thus creating a life debt. Peter managed to escape when Remus suddenly turned werewolf.

    No longer able to hide as a rat, Wormtail (as he is called in the Death Eater circle) decided to seek out his former master. He followed the rumors of rats to find Voldemort in the forests of Albania. While in an inn near the forest, he accidentally got recognized by a Ministry witch, Bertha Jorkins. Fearing she would turn him in, he seized her and brought her to the Dark Lord. By chance, Bertha turned out to be a well of information. Voldemort was able to break the memory charm he discovered in her and learned about Ministry plans and the existence of a faithful servant. Wormtail was now required to transport his master and do everything for him he could not do without a body. He attended to Voldemort in the old Riddle house. When Harry was transported to them in June ’95, Wormtail brewed a potion to resurrect the Dark Lord. He drew blood from Harry, retrieved bone from the grave of Voldemort’s father, and then cut off his own right hand in sacrifice. After regaining his body, Voldemort replaced Wormtail’s bloody stump with a powerful silver hand. In the following years, Wormtail has been relegated to little more than an errand boy to Severus Snape.

    Hermione Granger was surprised, but very pleased, when she received her Hogwarts acceptance letter. Always excited to learn new things, Hermione got her hands on all the books she could to read about the Wizarding world to ensure she was well prepared. She can be rather bossy and a stickler for the rules, which is why she had trouble making friends at first. It also didn’t help that her perfectionist nature let her excel in all her classes. She is firm in her belief that a library will have all the answers one could want (she is rumored to carry 20 books with her at any given time). Though she sometimes has to contend with prejudice as a Muggle-born, Hermione has the distinction of being called many times the cleverest witch of her year. It wasn’t until they saved her from a mountain troll that she became friends with Harry Potter and Ron Weasley, but from that point on they were virtually inseparable. Hermione is invaluable to them as a source of knowledge and homework help. With their friendship, Hermione learned to loosen up a bit and have a life outside of studying. She plays a large role in keeping them alive through their dangerous adventures and rule breaking.

    Her second year at Hogwarts was a difficult time for Hermione. The opening of the Chamber of Secrets put all non-pure-bloods in danger. This fear compelled Hermione to defy the rules and brew the Polyjuice Potion in hopes of finding the offender, but a mishap led to her turning into a black cat for two months. Then, right when she finally discovered what the monster of the Chamber was, she got petrified for the remainder of the school year before she could tell anyone. Luckily she had the foresight to write down her discovery, which Harry eventually discovered. Spending a third of the school year in the hospital wing and waking up to discover exams had been cancelled was a dreadful ordeal for Hermione.

    To recuperate from this experience, Hermione spent the following summer with her parents in France. While not quite as perilous (well, except for the escaped mass murder and dementors, of course), her 3rd year at Hogwarts was equally trying. Eager to learn everything possible, Hermione applied for a Time-Turner in order to be able to take every class offered. Taking her first step into non-human rights, Hermione also spent much of her time helping Hagrid prepare for the trial of Buckbeak, the hippogriff. Though she gave it a good run, she eventually wore herself into exhaustion and irritability. To make things worse, Hermione was not on speaking terms with Harry and Ron for much of the year. The frustration and loneliness was too much for Hermione; she finally decided to scale down her schedule for next year and, thankfully, she had made up with her friends. Before giving it up, however, she used her Time-Turner to help Harry save his godfather, Sirius Black.

    Her fourth year was an eye-opener for Hermione; it was the year she discovered the oppression of house-elves. Outraged by their, in her opinion, cruel treatment and complete lack of rights, Hermione began an organization called S.P.E.W. in an effort to free them. Her stubbornness and ideals kept her from accepting that they may not want her help. It was also an eventful year that consisted of her first date, with Viktor Krum, dealing with a jealous Ron and helping Harry train for the Tri-Wizard Tournament. It was the first time Hermione showed a more girlish side by shrinking her teeth and primping for the Yule Ball. Showing this side, however, led reporter Rita Skeeter to target her in a tantalizing (if fictional) story about a love-triangle between herself, Krum, and Harry. Hermione got revenge when she discovered that Skeeter was an Animagus and used it to blackmail her into silence.

    With the fifth year came Hermione’s proud moment of receiving her Prefect badge. She also renews her dedication to freeing house-elves by knitting deformed hats and hoping to trick the elves into taking them. Hermione coerces Harry into starting the D.A. to help them prepare for the upcoming dangers (and O.W.L.s). With the school submerged in censorship, Hermione used her pet reporter to help Harry convince the world that Voldemort was really back. During all this, she gets very stressed out and temperamental when faced with the all-important O.W.L. exams. Afterwards, Hermione and friends followed Harry to the Ministry of Magic on a doomed escapade from which she sustained a serious injury.

    Hermione seems to spend a lot less time with her parents recently, preferring instead to be with her friends on school holidays. She was left slightly disappointed with her O.W.L. results, collecting only 10 ‘Outstandings’ and 1 ‘Exceeds Expectations.’ Most of her sixth year was employed intent on doing better at Potions than Harry. The drama between Hermione and Ron reached extreme rough patches (her attacking him with conjured birds) throughout the year, but they appear to have come to an understanding at the end of it.

    Born:February 6, 19??
    Appearance:A tall, thin man, going bald, but the little hair he had was red.
    Wears horn-rimmed glasses

    Arthur Weasley has a fascination with all things Muggle. If he were allowed to, he would spend all his time tinkering with the charming objects that Muggles come up with because they don’t have magic. So it is natural that this fondness would lead Arthur to work at the Misuse of Muggle Artifacts office at the Ministry of Magic. He loves his work so much that he doesn’t really have the inclination to get a promotion, not caring much about prestige and wealth. Though he did win 700 Galleons from the annual Daily Prophet Draw in 1993. However, with the Ministry scrambling to deal with the war at their hands, Arthur was advanced to head the new Office for the Detection and Confiscation of Counterfeit Defensive Spells and Protective Objects in ’96.

    Arthur is one of three brothers. He wed his Hogwarts sweetheart, Molly (Prewett), sometime during Voldemort’s initial reign. Once while at Hogwarts, Arthur got caught out of bed in the middle of the night (for a nighttime stroll with Molly) by the caretaker and has still got the marks to show for it. After getting married, they welcomed the births of six sons and one daughter. Arthur is the less strict of the two parents, though not any less anxious about his children’s welfare. He became a valuable member of the Order of the Phoenix as a Ministry insider. Arthur’s dearest ambition is to find out how airplanes stay up.

    Finnigan, Seamus Finnigan, Seamus

The Finnigans are of Irish descent and were thrilled when Ireland made it into the 1994 Quidditch World Cup. He tried out for the Chaser position on the house team in his sixth year along with his best friend, Dean Thomas. Neither made the team originally, but Dean, to Seamus’s disappointment, was chosen when a substitute was needed. Seamus’s favorite professional Quidditch team is the Kenmare Kestrels (he has a poster hanging in his dormitory). Banshees are his greatest fear. He has a cousin Fergus.

    Seamus started his 5th year on bad terms with his dormmate, Harry Potter. His mother believed the Daily Prophet’s claims that Harry was lying about Voldemort’s return and just wanted attention. It wasn’t until he read Harry’s Quibbler interview that he apologized. After that, he joined the D.A. meetings before they were disbanded. When Dumbledore died in Seamus’s 6th year, his mother wanted him to go home right away, but he insisted on staying to pay his respects to the great wizard.

    Snape, Severus Snape, Severus
    Born:January 9, 1958?


    Severus Snape is the son of witch Eileen Prince and Muggle Tobias Snape. He was raised in a negative environment where his father yelled at his mother. He was scrawny and once laughed at for attempting to mount a bucking broom. He would kill flies with magic. As a teenager, he was stringy, pallid, and had long, greasy hair. He inherited his hooked-nose from his father. Round shouldered but angular, he walked much like a spider. He had always been fascinated by the Dark Arts. He knew more curses when he arrived at school than half the 7th years. Snape was part of a gang of Slytherins who all turned out to be Death Eaters: Rosier, Wilkes, the Lestranges and Avery. Trying to put a polish on his parentage, Snape took on the name ‘Half-Blood Prince’ after his pure-blood mother. He always had a flair for potions and dabbled in his own dark spells. He would take notes all over his potions book. In school, Snape had a mutual hatred with James Potter and Sirius Black. Black once endangered Snape’s life by pointing him in the direction of a werewolf. Potter stopped him from going on and so, much to Snape’s disgust, he felt in debt.

    Considering his obsession with the Dark Arts, Snape naturally became a Death Eater. He came upon the ultimate piece of information for his master when he was trying to get a teaching job at Hogwarts. He overheard a prophecy about the birth of one who had the power to vanquish the Dark Lord. Albus Dumbledore caught him and threw him out before he heard the rest of it. Apparently when Snape realized the Dark Lord was going after the Potters, he regretted passing on the information and went to Dumbledore for redemption. Dumbledore trusted him, made him the Potions Master at Hogwarts and asked him to be a double agent for the Order of the Phoenix in 1981. Snape was cleared by the council for being a Death Eater because Dumbledore vouched for him and gave evidence that Snape had turned to the good side before Voldemort’s downfall. He has not been accused of Dark activities since then (except by the meddlesome Harry Potter & friends), and his past transgressions are not widely known.

    When he suspected Quirrell of being after the Sorcerer’s/Philosopher’s Stone in ’91, he made every effort to stop him. He also grudgingly kept him from killing Harry Potter because he felt he owed James for saving his life (not to mention getting him and his wife killed). Outside of that though, Snape made Harry’s life as unpleasant as he could. The Dark Lord was resurrected in ’95, and Snape was asked to be a spy again. As an accomplished Legilimens and Occlumens, Dumbledore requested that he teach Harry to close his mind from the Dark Lord. Playing the double agent, Snape had 16 years worth of information to give to the Dark Lord, some of which led to the capture and murder of Emmeline Vance. In 1996, Narcissa Malfoy begged Snape to help her son, Draco, complete the assignment the Dark Lord had given him. Snape promised he would under the Unbreakable Vow. He also became the Defense Against the Dark Arts professor that year, a position he had sought after for years. When Draco could not do the job, Snape did it himself—he killed Albus Dumbledore. He fled the school with the other Death Eaters, but not before angrily fending off attacks by a vengeful Harry Potter. Snape uses Legilimency and his knowledge of hexes to stay a step ahead of opponents.

    Filch, Argus Filch, Argus
    Argus Filch is the pasty-faced caretaker at Hogwarts. He has thin, gray hair and sunken, veined cheeks. Flat-footed and rheumatic, Filch spends his time chasing down students and threatening to hang them. He and his pet cat, Mrs. Norris, patrol the school in hopes of catching students causing trouble. He has a whole list of banned items that barely anyone pays attention to. Filch is ashamed of being a Squib and tried to learn magic by taking the Kwikspell course. He was devastated when Mrs. Norris was petrified in ’92 and was relieved to have her revived. All of Filch’s dreams seemed to come true when High Inquisitor Dolores Umbridge took charge of Hogwarts in ’96. She promised Filch the power to whip students. Alas, she left before she could make good of the promise.

Snape knocked him out and left him unconscious while he went to murder Albus Dumbledore.

    Wood, Oliver Wood, Oliver
    Oliver Wood is a tall and burly Gryffindor, class of ’94. He is utterly fanatical about Quidditch. He plays Keeper and had the honor of being the captain of the team that had the youngest (and arguably greatest) seeker in Hogwarts history, Harry Potter. Harry was the answer to Oliver’s prayers, and he was determined to win a Quidditch Cup for Gryffindor before he left school. Unfortunate events kept them from winning in Harry’s first two years, so by Oliver’s final year at Hogwarts, he was desperate. He worked his team as hard as they would go. Oliver is so passionate about Quidditch, that he uttered the famous words: “Get to that Snitch…or die trying, Harry” (II.167). When they finally won the Cup, Oliver hugged Harry and sobbed unrestrainedly on his shoulder. After leaving Hogwarts, Oliver naturally went on to play professional Quidditch on the Puddlemere United Reserve Team.

She was a Chaser on the Quidditch team and took over the Captaincy in her last year. Angelina seemed to take on the traits of her old Captain, Oliver Wood, with her militant management of the team. Unluckily for her, she had the hard job of replacing their two Beaters and star Seeker midseason. Though it seemed impossible for Gryffindor to win the Quidditch Cup again that year, they played hard and managed it. Angelina entered her name for the 1994 Triwizard Tournament but was not chosen.

In a horrific accident, Katie ended up touching the necklace inside the package while arguing with her friend, Leanne, and spent several months in St. Mungo’s recovering. She would not have been injured had it not been for a tiny hole in her glove, but thankfully the hole was small enough to prevent fatal injury. She returned in April and was able to play in the final Quidditch match of the year, helping to win the Quidditch Cup for her 3rd time. Katie was a member of the D.A.

Firenze did Albus Dumbledore a favor by agreeing to teach Divination in ’96 when Prof. Trelawney was fired. He was attacked and banished by his herd for entering into the service of humans and teaching them the secrets of his kind. Luckily the groundskeeper, Hagrid, saved him; otherwise Firenze would probably have been killed. He continued to share the Divination teaching duties with Prof. Trelawney the following year.

    Dobby Dobby
    Born: June 28

    Dobby used to be the Malfoy family’s house-elf. Living with Dark wizards means Dobby hears many things, such as plans to unleash a monster at Hogwarts School. Dobby is a huge fan of Harry Potter and was horrified by the thought of him being hurt. He took it upon himself to keep Harry Potter from going back to school by stealing his letters so he thought he had no friends and getting him in trouble with the Ministry. However, speaking badly about his masters is against the house-elf code of conduct; so Dobby made sure he hurt himself every time he did. When Harry Potter insisted on going back to school, Dobby hexed a bludger to knock him off his broom in a Quidditch match. Harry Potter broke his arm but still would not listen to him. Happily, Harry Potter survived the dangers and even did Dobby the honor of tricking Lucius Malfoy into freeing Dobby with a sock. Two years later, Dobby got a job at Hogwarts and was even being paid wages. He was never like other house-elves, as he is so often reminded by his cousin, Winky, who also works there. Dobby uses his wages to buy more clothes.

    Clothes are Dobby’s true joy. When he was enslaved, all he had to wear was an old pillowcase. After being freed, he wore a tea cozy with bright badges pinned to it for a hat, a tie patterned with horseshoes over his bare chest and a pair of children’s soccer shorts. He has many pairs of socks, making sure to wear ones that do not match. Dobby also was the recipient of Hermione Granger’s knitted hats. He had to clean the Gryffindor Common Room by himself because the hidden clothes insulted the other house-elves. So Dobby would wear all the hats at the same time, extending his head by 2-3 feet. Dobby has large, bat-like ears; bulging green eyes the size of tennis balls; and a long, thin pencil-shaped nose.

    Dobby is always looking for ways to help the great Harry Potter. When he overheard a way for to breathe underwater, he immediately stole some gilly weed and gave it to Harry Potter so he could complete the Triwizard Tournament task. He was eager to offer his services when Harry Potter needed someone to spy on Draco Malfoy. Not like that bad house-elf, Kreacher, who treats Harry Potter sir appallingly.

    Lockhart, Gilderoy Lockhart, Gilderoy
    Gilderoy Lockhart has been the winner of Witch Weekly’s Most Charming-Smile Award five times in a row. He is famous for doing things he has never done. Lockhart wrote a plethora of (usually self-titled) books on various subjects. He also has an autobiography (6 months on bestseller list?). He was hired as the Defense Against the Dark Arts professor at Hogwarts (1992-93) because no one else wanted it. Lockhart has wavy blond hair, bright blue eyes, and a broad vacant smile that reveals his dazzlingly white teeth. He enjoys winking cheekily and has forget-me-not blue robes to match his eyes. His favorite color is lilac (he even writes with lilac ink). His ideal birthday gift would be harmony between all magic and non-magic peoples (though he wouldn’t say no to Ogden’s Firewhiskey). He is extremely vain, wears garish robes, and has pictures of himself all over his office. Lockhart was a basically useless teacher, though he bragged frequently. His lies were finally exposed when he was faced with the prospect of going into the Chamber of Secrets. Forced by a couple of second years (Harry Potter and Ron Weasley) to go into the Chamber, Lockhart tried to Obliviate them. He revealed that he always did this to people he stole adventurous stories from and claimed as his own (he’s much too beautiful to risk his own life doing them). Alas, Ron’s wand backfired on Lockhart and he lost his own memory. He now resides in the permanent spell damage ward at St. Mungo’s. Even though he has no idea anymore why he is famous, Lockhart still loves to sign autographs.

    Fletcher, Mundungus "Dung" Fletcher, Mundungus "Dung"
    Mundungus Fletcher is a squat, unshaven man in a tattered overcoat that makes him resemble a pile of rags. He has short bandy legs, long straggly ginger hair and bloodshot baggy eyes. He is said to look like a doleful basset hound, though he seems to bear a striking resemblance to Crookshanks the cat. He smokes a grimy black pipe; consequently, he usually smells of stale tobacco and drink. According to Phineas Nigellus, he is a half-blood. Dung, as he is known, was banned from the Hog’s Head Inn in the ’70s. He once attacked Arthur Weasley behind his back when being inspected for misused Muggle artifacts. Dung is essentially a crook, which comes in useful to the Order of the Phoenix because he has connections with others like himself and can get underground information. He is very loyal to Albus Dumbledore, who has helped him out of many tight spots. Dung was on duty to guard Harry Potter in Little Whinging in the summer of ’95, but he got lured away by the chance to get a hold of black market cauldrons. Harry ended up being attacked by dementors while he was gone. He also kept an eye on Harry and his friends when they had a meeting in Hogsmeade, but he had to disguise himself since he was not allowed in the Hog’s Head Inn. He posed as a witch in a thick, black veil that fell to her toes. Dung took advantage of his time in the Black house (Order headquarters) to scope out its possessions, which he promptly smuggled out after Sirius Black’s death. Apparently, being banned from the Hog’s Head does not keep him from trying to deal with the barman. After being caught trying to sell the Black family silverware by Harry, Dung went into hiding in fear of Dumbledore’s reaction. He was later caught impersonating an Inferius during an attempted burglary.

Colin seems to have a camera attached to him constantly. He has hero-worshipped Harry Potter ever since he heard his story. Colin spent much of his first year following Harry around and trying to get his picture. He only stopped when he was petrified by a basilisk. He had seen it through the lens of his camera, so he luckily wasn’t killed. His camera, sadly, was not as lucky. He was revived at the end of the year. Colin and his brother tried to alter the “Potter Stinks” badges during the Triwizard Tournament, but they ended up turning them into “Potter Really Stinks” badges. Colin was a member of the D.A., which helped him master the Impediment Jinx.

    Moaning Myrtle Moaning Myrtle
    Moaning Myrtle is a squat ghost of a girl. She has a glum face, half-hidden behind lank hair and thick, pearly spectacles. She is a very negative and morbid girl, even for a ghost. When she was a student at Hogwarts, she went to hide in the bathroom one day because another girl, Olive Hornby, had made fun of her glasses. She heard a boy’s voice and then the last thing she remembered seeing were large yellow eyes. The boy had been Tom Riddle, and he opened the Chamber of Secrets to unleash the basilisk within. The stare of the basilisk took Myrtle’s life (she may have been a Muggle-born). After she was killed, it took several hours for her to be found by Olive Hornby, and that was only because Headmaster Dippet asked her to look. Myrtle stalked/haunted Olive until the Ministry of Magic made her stop. She even showed up at Olive’s brother’s wedding. After that, Myrtle settled into the girls’ bathroom at Hogwarts. She spends most of her time in the U bend of the end toilet. She frequently throws tantrums by flooding the bathroom, which is why that particular bathroom is rarely used. On occasion she will venture to other water connected parts of the school, especially if it involved certain boys. She always hopes Harry Potter would die so he could spend his afterlife with her. More recently, she has taken a liking to Draco Malfoy.

He also felt strongly that only pure-blood students should attend the school, because he did not trust those who came from Muggle families. There was a rift between he and the other founders, and he left the school. However, Slytherin had built a secret chamber at Hogwarts that could only be opened by his descendants. Inside the chamber was a monstrous basilisk that only Slytherin’s heir could control. It was meant to purge the school of Muggle-borns with its deadly stare.

    Lupin, Remus J. "Moony" Lupin, Remus J. "Moony"
    Born:March 10, 1958?

    Remus John Lupin was bitten by a werewolf (Fenrir Greyback) as a very small boy. His parents could do nothing; it was not until later in his life that the Wolfsbane Potion was discovered. He did not think he would be able to go to school, but the new Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, was sympathetic and found a way for him to attend safely. He had a house (the Shrieking Shack) and an underground tunnel running between it and the school built. The Whomping Willow was then placed over the entrance to keep people from finding it. Every full moon, Remus would be taken to the Shack to wait out his transformation.

    After starting at Hogwarts, Remus was pleased to make some friends: James Potter, Sirius Black and Peter Pettigrew. However, he was afraid that they would find out what he was and desert him. Their actual reactions surprised and touched Remus; his friends spent years learning to become Animagi so they could keep him company when he was a wolf. They would roam the grounds at night, a recklessness Remus would later regret. The friends used their knowledge of the school to create the Marauder’s Map. Dumbledore made Remus a prefect in hopes that he would be able to control the rowdy James and Sirius, but Remus generally stuck to passively pretending not to notice their actions.

    A few years after leaving school, Remus’s world would fall apart. James and his family had gone into hiding, with Sirius as their Secret-Keeper. The next thing he knew, the Potters were dead and Sirius was thrown into Azkaban for killing Peter. Remus spent the next twelve years alone and scraping by in life. His light brown hair became flecked with gray, and he perpetually looked ill and exhausted. He wore shabby robes darned in several places and carried a small, battered case held together with neatly knotted string. His being a werewolf made it hard for him to find jobs. Finally, Dumbledore hired him as the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher at Hogwarts (1993-94). There, Remus would discover that one of his students was Harry Potter, James and Lily’s son. Remus helped Harry learn to cast a Patronus, because dementors affected him so much. At the same time, his old friend Sirius Black had escaped from Azkaban and was reportedly after Harry. Still, Remus resisted telling Dumbledore that Sirius was an Animagus, because he did not want to admit that he had betrayed his trust. He found the Marauder’s Map in Harry’s possession and confiscated it from him. He was stunned one day when he saw Peter’s name on the map. It was then that he realized what must have happened all those years ago. Remus found Sirius, Peter, Harry and his friends all in the Shrieking Shack. At last, he found out that Peter had been the one who was the Secret-Keeper and betrayed the Potters and that Sirius had been innocent the entire time. Sirius had not told Remus at the time because he suspected him as the spy. Unfortunately, Remus had forgotten to take his Wolfsbane Potion and transformed into a werewolf; in the chaos, Peter escaped and Sirius was forced to run from the Ministry, who still thought he was a murderer. It came out that he was a werewolf, so Remus resigned in anticipation of worried parents.

    In the previous war, Remus had been a member of the Order of the Phoenix, so he rejoined when Voldemort returned to power once more. He volunteered to be a part of the Advance Guard that picked Harry up from his Muggle relatives in ’95. By that time, his hair was grayer and his robes more patched and shabby than ever. When Harry and his friends were lured to the Department of Mysteries, Remus and other Order members had to go rescue them. During the battle, Remus lost the last of his old friends when Sirius fell through the veil. He then undertook the task of going underground among his fellow (but more wild) werewolves and see if they would side with him. Remus found some romance within the Order with Nymphadora Tonks. He tried to break it off, however, because he thought he was too old, poor and wolfy for her. After Dumbledore’s death, Tonks managed to convince Remus to let them be happy together.

    Sir Cadogan is a portrait on a landing on the way to Prof. Trelawney’s Divination classroom. He was temporarily moved to guard the Gryffindor Common Room after the Fat Lady was attacked by Sirius Black because no one else wanted the job. Sir Cadogan is an armored knight who brandishes his sword around challenging people to duels, though his bravado is sometimes diminished when his helmet visor muffles his insults. He is neighbors with a large and angry looking wolfhound.

    Trelawney, Sibyll Patricia Trelawney, Sibyll Patricia
    Sibyll Patricia Trelawney is a very thin woman with enormous glasses that make her eyes appear far too large for her face. She wears a large amount of beads, chains and bangles and is always heavily draped in shawls. Sibyll is the great-great-granddaughter of Cassandra Trelawney, a celebrated Seer. For this reason, Albus Dumbledore felt obligated to at least interview Sibyll for the Divination position at Hogwarts, even though he did not believe she truly had the Sight. He was shocked when she happened to have a real and important prophecy (about vanquishing the Dark Lord) during the meeting in 1980. Sibyll does not even remember it, but Dumbledore hired her, mostly to keep her safe. Other than the fluke premonitions that she does not realize she has (she also predicted a servant would return to Voldemort in ’94), she is basically a fraud. She likes to predict the death of a student every year. Her favorite subject is Harry Potter, whom she always looks at with a tragic expression. She spends almost all of her time in her tower, clouded by the vapors. She speaks in a misty, dreamy voice (when composed). Sibyll was put on probation and then fired by High Inquisitor Umbridge in ’96. Dumbledore let her stay at Hogwarts because he was afraid someone might get the prophecy out of her. She was reinstated to partial teaching duties the following year with Umbridge gone. Sibyll likes to get inebriated on cooking sherry.

    Diggory, Cedric Diggory, Cedric

    A Triwizard Tournament Champion & (deceased) winner

    Cedric Diggory was well loved in the Hufflepuff House. He was smart, athletic, nice and handsome. Cedric was the Seeker and captain of the Quidditch team. He had the distinction of being the only person to catch the Snitch against Harry Potter. Hufflepuff does not often get a claim to fame, so they gave Cedric their full support when he became Hogwart’s Triwizard champion. His housemates were irritated when it seemed like Harry Potter was taking some of the spotlight away from Cedric by taking his title of lone Hogwarts champion. However, Cedric was always gracious and never let anything go to his head. He went to the Yule Ball with the Ravenclaw Seeker, Cho Chang. Cedric performed very well in the Tournament; he went into the final task tied for first place. During this final task, a fellow competitor Viktor Krum, who was under the Imperius Curse, used the Cruciatus Curse on Cedric. Luckily, he was saved by Harry before too much damage had been inflicted. In the end, the two of them decided to call the contest a tie and take the Triwizard Cup together. The Cup turned out to be a portkey that transported them into the hands of Voldemort. Before Cedric knew what was happening, Peter Pettigrew, a Death Eater, had used the Killing Curse on him. Harry was forced to duel with Voldemort, and their brother wands produced the Reverse Spell effect. Cedric’s shadow came out of Voldemort’s wand and helped Harry escape; he also asked Harry to bring his body back to his parents. At the Leaving Feast, Cedric’s memory was toasted.

    "Remember, the time should come when we have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory." Dumbledore about Cedric (IV.724)

    Rosmerta, Madam Rosmerta, Madam
    Madam Rosmerta is a curvy sort of woman with a pretty face. She runs the Three Broomsticks bar in Hogsmeade. In ’96-’97, Rosmerta was put under the Imperius Curse and forced to do the biddings of Death Eaters. Draco Malfoy used enchanted coins to communicate with her. She put the Imperius on Katie Bell to deliver a package containing a cursed necklace up to the castle to Albus Dumbledore. After that scheme failed, she sent poisoned mead to Horace Slughorn, also intended for Dumbledore. On the night the Death Eaters infiltrated Hogwarts, Rosmerta informed Draco that Dumbledore had left the school and then made sure Dumbledore went to the Dark Mark when he returned.

    Pettigrew, Mrs. Pettigrew, Mrs.
    When her son, Peter, was supposedly murdered by Sirius Black, there was only a finger left of him. Mrs. Pettigrew’s only comfort was that Peter was given the Order of Merlin, First Class. As it turned out, Peter, a Death Eater, had faked his own death.

    Chang, Cho Chang, Cho
    Cho Chang is an extremely pretty Ravenclaw, class of ’97. This petite girl has long, dark hair and a freckled nose. Cho is quite popular, with many friends and many boys chasing after her. She caught the attentions of the famous Harry Potter, but Cho was already quite taken with brave Hufflepuff Cedric Diggory. The Triwizard Champion and Quidditch Captain took her to the Yule Ball in her fifth year. Cho was devastated when Cedric died. She went out with Harry briefly on the rebound the next year, but that was pretty much a disaster. She spent much of the year crying and thinking about Cedric. She moved on to fellow Ravenclaw Michael Corner in her final year at Hogwarts.

    Cho plays Seeker for the Ravenclaw Quidditch team on her Comet Two Sixty. She had some problems with injuries before the ’93 season, but she is known to be a good player. Strangely, she has a very bad track record against Gryffindor. Her favorite professional team is the Tutshill Tornados. She was a member of the D.A., where she learned to cast a Patronus in the shape of a swan.

    Book 4

    Riddle, Tom Sr. Riddle, Tom Sr.
    Tom Riddle lived in the village of Little Hangleton with his elderly parents. He was very much like them, except even more snobbish and rude. The son of a squire, he enjoyed riding horses with his darling Cecilia. He was a handsome and dark-haired young man. Merope Gaunt, a witch living on the edge of town, fell in love with Tom and bewitched the Muggle into marrying her. Feeling secure of his love, Merope stopped the enchantment when she became pregnant. Tom, however, was disgusted by the situation he found himself in. He left her and returned home without a second thought for her or their child. Tom would pay for that when the child grew up. Merope had named their son after him but had died in childbirth. Tom Riddle, Jr. grew up in an orphanage before discovering he was a wizard. Once he learned of his origins, he went to Little Hangleton in 1943 to find out more. When he realized that his father was a Muggle and had treated his mother badly, he murdered his father and grandparents. The Riddles’ Muggle neighbors had no idea what Avada Kedavra was (nor did they themselves), so they suspected the gardener, Frank Bryce, of killing the family. With no actual evidence of murders, the mystery remained unsolved. Tom was buried in the nearby cemetery, where his son later used his bones to resurrect himself.

    Riddle, Mr. (Grandfather) Riddle, Mr. (Grandfather)
    Mr. Riddle lived in the village of Little Hangleton with his wife and son, Tom Riddle. As he was elderly, rich, snobbish and rude, he was not highly liked by his neighbors. His abandoned wizard grandson, also named Tom Riddle, killed his family out of hatred for his Muggle parentage in 1943. Mr. Riddle’s Muggle neighbors had no idea what Avada Kedavra was (nor did he), so they suspected the gardener, Frank Bryce, of killing the family. With no actual evidence of murders, the mystery remained unsolved.

With no actual evidence of murders, the mystery remained unsolved.

    Bryce, Frank Bryce, Frank
    (1917 - August 1994)

    Frank Bryce was a Muggle war veteran who came back with a very stiff leg and a great dislike of crowds and loud noises. He had grown up in Little Hangleton and returned there after the war. He lived alone in a cottage on the grounds of the Riddle House where he worked as the gardener. In the summer of 1943, Frank was suspected of killing the Riddle family. On the night of the murders, he claimed to have seen a pale, dark-haired, teenaged boy in the area. He was released because there was no evidence that the family had actually been murdered. Afterwards, Frank continued to live in his cottage and tend the garden for whoever owned the property. By August of 1994, his leg was even stiffer and he had become partially deaf. One night, he noticed a light on in the Riddle House. He went to investigate and overheard a strange conversation about a murder. Frank was caught and killed by some lunatic who called himself Lord Voldemort.

    Jorkins, Bertha Jorkins, Bertha
    (1950s - 1994)

    Bertha Jorkins was a bit dim, but she had an excellent memory for gossip. Her nosiness often got her in trouble. The plump witch used to work for the Department of International Magical Cooperation. She went to the house of Bartemius Crouch, her boss, one day to get some papers signed. While there, she overheard a conversation that proved that Crouch’s son, who had been sent to Azkaban and supposedly died, was still alive. Crouch put a powerful Memory Charm on her that addled her brain. Bertha was never quite the same, and she got tossed about the Ministry. In 1994, Bertha vanished between visiting a 2nd cousin and her aunt in Albania. She had met Peter Pettigrew, also thought dead, at an inn at the edge of a forest. He overpowered her and brought her to Lord Voldemort to be used as an information booth. She was disposed of after all of her Ministry knowledge was extracted.

    Crouch, Bartemius Crouch, Bartemius
    Bartemius Crouch, Sr. was a stiff, upright, elderly man with short gray hair parted unnaturally straight. He had a narrow toothbrush mustache and wrinkly skin. At the time when Voldemort first disappeared, Crouch was power hungry and devoted his whole life to becoming the Minister of Magic. He was the Head of the Dept. of Magical Law Enforcement and was very outspoken against the Dark Side. He was obsessed with sending Voldemort’s supporters to Azkaban; he even sent Sirius Black without a trial. He gave Aurors the power to use Unforgivable Curses on suspects. Then his son was caught with Death Eaters and his career was derailed. His reputation was ruined because the public saw him as a neglectful father. Crouch gave his son a trial mostly to show how much he hated him, and then he sentenced him to Azkaban in order to make clear he didn’t show favoritism. As far as he was concerned, he had no son. Unfortunately, the damage to his career was already done.

    His wife, whom he loved, begged him to rescue their son from the horrors of Azkaban. Since she was already on the verge of death, she used Polyjuice Potion to switch places with her son. She died in the prison while he restrained their son at home with the Imperius Curse. A witch from his office, Bertha Jorkins, inadvertently discovered the secret, and Crouch frantically used a Memory Charm on her. Regrettably, the charm was far too powerful and her brain could not handle it. By 1994, he was shuffled to Head of the Department of International Magical Cooperation since he could speak over 200 languages (mermish, gobbledegook, troll…). Crouch helped to organize the Quidditch World Cup and was convinced by his house-elf, Winky, to let his son attend. However, it turned out to be a bad idea because his son got hold of a wand and cast the Dark Mark, triggering chaos. He released Winky for allowing it to happen. Crouch got a taste of his own medicine when his son returned to the services of Voldemort, who put him under the Imperius Curse. Crouch was supposed to be a judge in the Triwizard Tournament, but after the first task, Voldemort kept him from going to work at all. Eventually, Crouch was able to throw the curse off enough to reach Hogwarts in an attempt to warn them. However, his son, having been warned by Voldemort, killed him when he arrived.

    Bagman, Ludovic Bagman, Ludovic
    Ludovic Bagman likes to talk about Bludgers and Quaffles in front of Muggles. He played for England and the Wimbourne Wasps and wore long Quidditch robes of thick bright yellow and black horizontal stripes. An enormous picture of a wasp was splashed across his chest. He looks like a powerfully built man gone slightly to seed. Apparently he was hit by bludgers a lot during his career. His robes stretch tightly across his large (beer) belly. He has a squashed nose, round blue eyes, short blond hair and a rosy complexion. “…his round face gleaming like a great, excited Edam” (IV.102) [Edam: A mild, yellow Dutch cheese, pressed into balls and usually covered with red wax.]

    In the early ’80s, Ludo was tall, lean and muscular. He was at the height of his Quidditch playing fitness; his nose was not yet broken. He was brought to trial in front of the Council of Magical Law and charged for activities relating to Death Eaters. Ludo was accused of passing information to Augustus Rookwood, a friend of his father, in exchange for the promise of a job at the Ministry in the future. The Saturday prior to these events, Ludo had a splendid performance for England against Turkey. Due to his popularity (and probably stupidity), he was not convicted. He has not been accused of Dark activities since the trial.

    Ludo is currently Head of Magical Games and Sports at the Ministry. He has a weakness for gambling. Goblins took all of his money after the Quidditch World Cup in ’94, and it still was not enough to repay his debts. He had tried paying off the betting debts with Leprechaun gold, but he could not fool the goblins. He then tried to pay it off by betting on Harry Potter in the Triwizard Tournament. Since Harry only tied for the win, Ludo had to run.

    Seeker for Bulgaria

    Viktor Krum was the Seeker for the Bulgarian team in the 1994 Quidditch World Cup, despite being young and still in school. Viktor deployed the Wronski Feint to plough Ireland’s Seeker. Unfortunately, the Irish Chasers far overmatched Bulgaria, so all Viktor could do was catch the Snitch to stop the bleeding—even as his bludger-bashed nose was bleeding. Bulgaria lost by only 10 points. It’s almost as if he was built for flying, as he is far less coordinated on the ground. Viktor’s still, however, a talented enough wizard to follow up his impressive Quidditch performance by becoming Durmstrang’s Triwizard champion. He had a somewhat flawed but very respectable showing in the Tournament. Unfortunately, he fell under the Imperius Curse during the final task and was forced to Crucio a fellow competitor. Luckily, he was stunned before he could cause too much damage. Even though he went to Durmstrang, he is not a follower of the Dark Arts. Over the course of the year, Viktor had become partial to a certain Hogwarts bookworm, Hermione Granger. He asked her to the Yule Ball and even wanted her to visit him over the summer. He has continued to be friends with and write her since then.

Like most fathers, he is extremely proud of his son, Cedric, and loves to brag about him. In fact, he had plenty to boast about, as his son was a Quidditch Captain and Triwizard champion. Tragically, Cedric’s talent co-won him the Tournament (with Harry Potter) and led to his murder by Peter Pettigrew on Voldemort’s orders. His only consolation was that Harry brought Cedric’s body back. Amos was devastated when he heard the story of his son’s death.

Mrs. Finnigan wanted to keep Seamus from returning to Hogwarts in ’95 because she was worried about her son being in the company of his dormmate, Harry Potter. She thought Harry was a liar and the Headmaster, Dumbledore, was an old fool because of what she had read in the Daily Prophet. She did not change her mind until Seamus sent her a copy of Harry’s interview in The Quibbler. Mrs. Finnigan seems to be very protective of her son. She wanted to pull him straight out of Hogwarts after Dumbledore’s death, but Seamus insisted that they stay for the funeral.

In 1995, Lucius Malfoy put the Imperius Curse on him to force him to steal a prophecy. However, Bode did not have the ability to lift the prophecy. Knowing what would happen to him if he touched it, Bode fought hard against the Curse but was unable to stop it. He was hospitalized in St. Mungo’s for thinking he was a teapot, though he was starting to get better (he had improved speech and mobility). To keep him quiet, Bode was sent a cutting of Devil’s Snare posing as a Christmas present (it resembled Flitterbloom) and was strangled to death.

    Winky Winky
    Winky lived for many years as the house-elf of the Crouch family. When the son, Barty Crouch, Jr., had to stay in hiding, Winky was the one who took care of him. She took pity on Barty and tried to get his father to give him rewards. Winky convinced Crouch senior of bringing his son to the 1994 Quidditch World Cup. Unfortunately, Barty escaped and summoned the Dark Mark on Winky’s watch. She was caught holding the wand that had cast it. Crouch, trying to distance himself from the Dark Arts (and suspicions of his son) released Winky by giving her clothes. Winky, being a typical house-elf, was distraught about being freed and separated from her family. She ended up getting a job at Hogwarts with her cousin Dobby. However, she spent most of her first year getting intoxicated with Butterbeers and crying into her filthy clothes. Winky was horrified when she found out her master Barty had killed his father and done all sorts of Dark things.

    Crouch, Bartemius Jr. Crouch, Bartemius Jr.
    Barty Crouch, Jr. had straw-colored hair and freckled, milk-white skin. He was a smart boy who got twelve O.W.L.s. However, his workaholic father was rarely around, and this was believed to be the reason Barty went bad. When he was 19, he was caught with Death Eaters (the Lestranges) and convicted of torturing the Longbottoms for information about Voldemort. Even though he denied everything, he was sent to Azkaban with a life-sentence by his very own father. He was screaming for his mother by nightfall but went quiet after a few days. Officially, he died in Azkaban after about a year and is buried outside the fortress. What really happened was that his mother, already ill, begged her husband to save him. When his parents went to visit him, his mother switched places with him and his father took him home.

    He was kept confined to the house by his father and watched over by their house-elf, Winky. One day, a witch from the Ministry, Bertha Jorkins, went over and stumbled upon Barty’s existence. His father had to obliviate her, but she was never the same again. By chance, Bertha fell into the path of Voldemort and by probing her mind, he learned that his most faithful servant was still alive. In 1994, Winky convinced his father to let him go to the Quidditch World Cup because he had always loved Quidditch. Barty attended the match, supervised by Winky, under an Invisibility Cloak. By that time, he was slowly fighting the Imperius Curse his father had put on him and managed to get a hold of a wand. That night, when some old Death Eaters were fooling around, Barty decided to send the Dark Mark into the sky and see how loyal they really were; he wasn’t surprised when they ran. Some time later, Voldemort himself showed up at the Crouch house to reclaim Barty’s services and put his father under the Imperius. Barty would pose as the new DADA professor, Mad-Eye Moody, using Polyjuice Potion and fix the Triwizard Tournament so that Harry Potter would win and be delivered to his master. Ironically, he stressed the importance of being able to fight the Imperius Curse to his classes, seeing as it took himself over a decade to throw it off. Complications arose when his father began fighting the curse as well and showed up at Hogwarts. Barty intercepted before Albus Dumbledore could talk to him and killed him. He turned the Triwizard Cup into a portkey that sent Potter to Voldemort. Unfortunately, Potter escaped and returned to Hogwarts. Barty was exposed and forced with Veritaserum to tell his story. Soon afterwards, an overeager Dementor kissed him to death.

    Skeeter, Rita Skeeter, Rita
    Rita Skeeter was born in 1951 (or so she claims) and has blonde, elaborate and curiously rigid curls. She has a heavy-jawed face, heavily penciled eyebrows and wears jeweled winged spectacles. Her large, mannish hands have thick fingers with 2 inch nails painted crimson. She has three gold teeth. Rita carries a crocodile-skin handbag and wears acid green robes. Whenever there is news, she is always there. She was a special correspondent for the Daily Prophet in ’94, and her favorite topic was Harry Potter. Rita uses questionable ethics to get scoops and does not care who she hurts with her stories—or even if they are true. She writes with a Quick-Quotes Quill that glamorizes the ‘facts.’ She purposely interviews biased people to contribute to her story angle. She was blackmailed by a student, Hermione Granger, who worked out that Rita was an illegal Animagus. Her animal form is a large, fat beetle with markings around the antennae much like her foul glasses. Hermione called in a ‘favor’ the next year by doing the last thing imaginable—she asked her to interview Harry. The article about the Dark Lord’s resurrection was a huge success.

    Moody, Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody, Alastor "Mad-Eye"
    Mad-Eye Moody is an ex-Auror who took his job very seriously. By the time he retired, his face looked like badly carved wood and every inch of it was scarred. His mouth looks like a diagonal gash and a large chunk of his nose is missing (from taking down Death Eater Evan Rosier). One eye is small, dark and beady; the other is an artificial magical eye: large, round as a coin, vivid electric blue. It moves incessantly without blinking in every direction (it can see through anything, including invisibility cloaks), which is how he got the nickname “Mad-Eye.” He has a carved wooden leg that has a clawed foot at the bottom. He leans on a long staff to help him walk. He has a long mane of grizzled, dark gray hair. Mad-Eye is very paranoid of enemies coming after him, so he only drinks out of a hip flask. Most people think he is crazy, but he is good friends with Albus Dumbledore and Arthur Weasley. Birds of a feather flock together.

    In the years after Voldemort’s first downfall, Mad-Eye was determined to track down every last Death Eater. He never killed if he could help it; he would bring them in alive if possible so they could stand trial. Defense Against the Dark Arts is not a game for him. He spent 6 months tracking down and capturing Igor Karkaroff. He still had both of his eyes then. In 1994, Dumbledore asked Mad-Eye to be the DADA professor. The night before he was set to start, however, Mad-Eye was attacked by Bartemius Crouch, Jr. and Peter Pettigrew. Crouch used Polyjuice Potion to impersonate Mad-Eye and take his station at Hogwarts. Mad-Eye was hidden inside his own trunk; it is a 7-compartment trunk, the last compartment consists of a sort of underground room. He spent ten entire months stunned.

    Mad-Eye was an original member of the Order of the Phoenix. He went back to the Order after being rescued from his trunk. He was part of the Advanced Guard to transport Harry Potter from his Muggle relatives’ home to Order headquarters. After cleaning his magical eye and advising Harry on wand placement, he led the Guard on a crazy route to headquarters in case anyone was trying to follow. Mad-Eye tried to lift Harry’s spirits by showing him a photo of his dead parents sitting next to the traitor Pettigrew. In June of ’96, he and some other Order members had to go to the Ministry of Magic to rescue Harry and his friends from a Death Eater trap. At the end of the school year, they had a talk with Harry’s Muggle relatives to make sure they would not mistreat him.

    Dennis is Colin Creevey’s younger brother. He, too, is tiny and mousy-haired. He is in the Gryffindor class of 2001. Dennis helped Colin try to alter the “Potter Stinks” badges, but the magic was too much for the first year, and they ended up with “Potter Really Stinks” badges. In his 2nd year, Dennis snuck into Hogsmeade just so he could attend the meeting to start up the D.A.

    Maxime, Olympe Maxime, Olympe
    Olympe Maxime is the Head of Beauxbatons Academy. She has olive skin, black hair, large black liquid-looking eyes and long eyelashes. She has a beaky nose and dresses in black satin. Though she would not admit it at first, Madame Maxime is a half-giant. She went to Hogwarts for the Triwizard Tournament in 1994. There she met another half-giant, Rubeus Hagrid, and they hit it off. When Lord Voldemort returned to power, she went with Hagrid to request the support of the giants.

    Karkaroff, Igor Karkaroff, Igor
    Igor Karkaroff has short, sleek and silver hair, which used to be black, that match the furs he likes to wear. His curled goatee does not hide his weak chin. He is tall and thin but has yellow teeth and cold, shrew, blue eyes. He has a fruity voice and white skin. Karkaroff was a Death Eater but cut a deal with the Ministry of Magic to be released. He had been caught by Auror Mad-Eye Moody after being tracked for 6 months. He gave up names of many of his fellow Death Eaters, most of whom they already knew about. However, Augustus Rookwood was a big enough name for Karkaroff to be let go. Karkaroff went on to become the Headmaster of the Durmstrang Institute, which was rumored to teach the Dark Arts. He attended the Triwizard Tournament in ’94 in accompaniment of his students, Viktor Krum in particular. When the Dark Lord made his return and summoned his servants, Karkaroff ran because he knew he would not be accepted after having turned others in to save himself. Voldemort requested his death, and his body was found in a shack up north in July of ’96.

    Delacour, Fleur Delacour, Fleur
    School:Beauxbatons Academy
    Born:1977?
    Appearance:Long silvery-blonde hair
    Large, deep blue eyes
    White even teeth
    Haughty and unruffled (except when she gets ruffled)
    Wand:9 ½ in.
    Rosewood
    Veela hair from her grandmother
    Achievements:A Triwizard Tournament Champion

    Fleur Delacour is one-quarter veela courtesy of her grandmother. She is also of French descent and attended Beauxbatons Academy. In 1994, Fleur made the trip to Hogwarts in hopes of entering the Triwizard Tournament. She, of course, was chosen to be the champion representing her school. The veela blood may possibly cause her to be just a touch temperamental and conceited. Though she competed proudly, Fleur did not do quite as well as her counterparts. She did decently in the first task, could not complete the second task, and was taken out of contention in the third task through interference. Since the contest was rigged, Fleur never had a chance; though that was probably a good thing, considering what happened to Cedric Diggory. She did, however, part on good terms with fellow champion, Harry Potter, when he rescued her sister, Gabrielle, in the second task.

    After leaving school the next year, Fleur decided the move to England to work and improve her English. She got a job at Gringotts, coincidentally the same place Bill Weasley, whom she’d noticed during the Tournament, worked. After dating for about a year, they got engaged in the summer of ’96. They plan on having the wedding the following summer. It was difficult getting Bill’s family to accept her at first; they seemed to be under the impression that she did not genuinely care for him. The Weasleys were not too subtle about their dislike, so Fleur did the same in turn. However, Fleur proved that she wanted Bill for more than his looks by standing by him after a werewolf had mauled him. Once this was established, her future mother-in-law, Molly, promptly embraced her.

    Fridwulfa had a son, Rubeus Hagrid, with a wizard. When Rubeus was about three, Fridwulfa lost interest and left them. She rejoined the giant community and had another son, Grawp. Though Grawp was full giant, he was still fairly small, so Fridwulfa was not very proud of him either.

    Bozo Bozo
    Bozo is Rita Skeeter’s photographer.

    Dumbledore, Aberforth Dumbledore, Aberforth
    Aberforth Dumbledore may quite possibly be even stranger than his brother, Albus. He was prosecuted for using inappropriate charms on goats. The incident was all over the papers, but Aberforth paid no attention—though that may simply have been a case of illiteracy.

    Member of the old Order of the Phoenix.

    Aberforth and the barman of the Hog’s Head may be one and the same. The bar smells suspiciously of goats. This is a grumpy-looking old man with long gray hair and beard and wears glasses. His tall and thin stature is vaguely familiar. He caught Severus Snape eavesdropping on the meeting between Albus Dumbledore and Sybill Trelawney many years ago. He attends Albus’s funeral.

    Hagrid, Mr. Hagrid, Mr.
    Mr. Hagrid had a son, Rubeus, with the giantess Fridwulfa. His half-giant son got so large that by the time Rubeus was six, he could pick his father up. Unfortunately, Mr. Hagrid died when Rubeus was in his second year of school.

    Delacour, Gabrielle Delacour, Gabrielle

    Crouch, Mrs. Crouch, Mrs.
    Mrs. Crouch was a wispy-looking witch whose husband was fanatical about his work. Her son, Bartemius Crouch Jr., was caught with Death Eaters and sentenced by her own husband to prison. Officially, she wasted away from grief because her son was in Azkaban. In reality, she convinced her husband to do her one last favor and rescue their son, knowing that she would die soon anyway. They went to Azkaban and she used Polyjuice Potion to switch places. She died shortly afterward and is buried outside the prison fortress.

    Rosier, Evan Rosier, Evan
    Evan Rosier was part of a gang of Slytherins in the ’70s who all turned out to be Death Eaters: Snape, Avery, Wilkes and the Lestranges. There is some discrepancy over when Rosier died. One story says he was killed by Aurors the year before the Dark Lord fell. Another story states they killed him shortly after Igor Karkaroff was caught at the time Death Eaters were being rounded up after Voldemort’s fall. Nevertheless, Rosier preferred to fight rather than go quietly; he took a chunk out of Auror Mad-Eye Moody’s nose.

    Wilkes Wilkes
    Wilkes was part of a gang of Slytherins who all turned out to be Death Eaters: Snape, Rosier, Avery and the Lestranges. Aurors killed him the year before the Dark Lord fell.

    Lestrange, Bellatrix (Black) Lestrange, Bellatrix (Black)
    Bellatrix was born into the noble and ancient house of Black. She has two sisters, Narcissa (Malfoy) and Andromeda (the blood traitor). She married Rodolphus Lestrange, a pure-blood. Bellatrix is a tall, dark woman with long, thick, shiny, sleek, dark hair and heavy-lidded eyes. She has a gaunt, skull-like face and thin lips. She claims to be the Dark Lord’s most faithful follower and that he taught her the Dark Arts. After he was supposedly defeated, Bellatrix was convinced that he would rise again and reward those who had tried to find him. So she and several others (Crouch Jr., Rabastan and Rodolphus) captured Frank Longbottom and tortured him for information on the Dark Lord’s whereabouts. They also tortured Frank’s wife, Alice, until both were permanently incapacitated. All of them were caught and convicted to a life-sentence in Azkaban. Bellatrix was proud to suffer in prison rather than renounce her master.

    She was part of a mass breakout from Azkaban in January ’96. Bellatrix gleefully reentered the service of the Dark Lord. She was part of the Death Eater group who ambushed Harry Potter at the Department of Mysteries. She delighted in taunting Potter and his little friends like the babies they were. Bellatrix even got to complete the set of Longbottoms by Cruciating their son, Neville. She also delighted in killing her blood traitor cousin, Sirius Black. Unfortunately, the mission itself was unsuccessful: the prophecy was destroyed and all the Death Eaters (minus herself) were arrested. Potter tried to use the Cruciatus Curse on her, but he could not manage it at full strength. Bellatrix escaped when her master showed up himself, but he was not happy with her.

    Shortly afterwards, Bellatrix tried to stop her sister, Narcissa, from asking Severus Snape for help. She did not trust Snape because he worked at Hogwarts for Albus Dumbledore. However, he consented to taking the Unbreakable Vow and asked her to perform it.

    Lestrange, Rabastan Lestrange, Rabastan
    Rabastan Lestrange, Rodolphus (his brother), Bellatrix and Barty Crouch, Jr. captured Frank Longbottom and tortured him for information on the Dark Lord’s whereabouts. They also tortured Frank’s wife, Alice, until both were permanently incapacitated. All of them were caught and convicted to a life-sentence in Azkaban. They were part of a mass breakout from Azkaban in January ’96 after which they reentered the Dark Lord’s service. A group of Death Eaters ambushed Harry Potter at the Department of Mysteries. Unfortunately, the mission was unsuccessful: the prophecy was destroyed and all the Death Eaters except Bellatrix were arrested. He is either a thickset man with a blank stare or a thinner and more nervous looking man with darting eyes.

    Avery, ? Avery, ?
    Avery went to school with Tom Riddle. He, along with several other boys, was at the meeting with Professor Slughorn, after which Riddle asked about Horcruxes. Avery admired Riddle, and he was likely one of the earliest to enter his inner circle, later to be known as Death Eaters. Likely the father of current Death Eater Avery.

    Fudge, Mrs. Fudge, Mrs.
    The wife of Minister of Magic Cornelius Fudge.

    Dolohov, Antonin Dolohov, Antonin
    Antonin Dolohov has a long, pale, twisted face. He was one of the Death Eaters who waited at the Hog’s Head while Voldemort went up to Hogwarts seeking a teaching position in the ’50s. After Voldemort’s fall, he was first captured shortly after Igor Karkaroff and was said to have tortured countless Muggles and non-supporters. He also brutally murdered Gideon and Fabian Prewett. He escaped from Azkaban during the mass breakout in January ’96. Dolohov was one of the Death Eaters who ambushed Harry Potter at the Department of Mysteries in June ’96 (at which time he was recaptured). He severely injured Hermione Granger during the conflict.

    Travers Travers
    Travers, a Death Eater, helped to murder the McKinnons. He was sent to Azkaban.

    Mulciber Mulciber
    Mulciber specialized in the Imperius Curse. He had forced countless people to do horrendous things during Voldemort’s reign. He was one of the Death Eaters who waited at the Hog’s Head while Voldemort went up to Hogwarts seeking a teaching position in the ’50s. Mulciber must have escaped from Azkaban during the mass breakout in January ’96. He was one of the Death Eaters who ambushed Harry Potter at the Department of Mysteries in June ’96 (at which time he was recaptured).

    Rookwood, Augustus Rookwood, Augustus
    Augustus Rookwood is pockmarked with scars and has greasy hair. He worked for the Department of Mysteries in the Ministry of Magic but was a spy for the Dark Lord. He had a network of well-placed wizards he used to collect information for his master, including Ludo Bagman (he had been a friend of Ludo’s father). Rookwood was ratted out by Igor Karkaroff. He escaped from Azkaban during the mass breakout in January ’96. Knowing how things in the Dept. of Mysteries work, he told Voldemort that Broderick Bode could not have taken the prophecy. He was also one of the Death Eaters who ambushed Harry Potter at the Department that June (at which time he was recaptured).

    Longbottom, Frank Longbottom, Frank
    Frank Longbottom was an Auror and a member of the original Order of the Phoenix. He and his wife, Alice, had thrice defied Voldemort and thus their son, Neville, was eligible to be the one prophesized to defeat the Dark Lord. Thankfully, he ended up not being the one, but then Frank was attacked after Voldemort’s fall from power, just when everyone thought they were safe. He was tortured for information on Voldemort’s whereabouts by Bartemius Crouch Jr., Bellatrix, Rabastan and Rodolphus Lestrange. Alice was also tortured when he did not respond satisfactorily. The Longbottoms were very popular so their torture caused a fury that put the Ministry under great pressure to catch the culprits. The Cruciatus Curse did such extensive damage that Frank and Alice will likely spend the rest of their lives in St. Mungo’s, effectively leaving their son, Neville, an orphan. They now reside at the far end of the Janus Thickey ward. Frank’s mother and son visit during holidays, but they can no longer recognize them.

    Longbottom, Alice Longbottom, Alice
    Alice Longbottom was a member of the original Order of the Phoenix along with her husband, Frank, who was also an Auror. They had already thrice defied Voldemort and thus their son, Neville, was eligible to be the one prophesized to defeat the Dark Lord. Thankfully, he ended up not being the one, but just as they were beginning to feel safe after Voldemort’s disappearance, Frank was attacked. He was tortured for information on Voldemort’s whereabouts by Bartemius Crouch Jr., Bellatrix, Rabastan and Rodolphus Lestrange. Then they proceeded to torture Alice to the point of insanity. The Longbottoms were very popular so their torture caused a fury that put the Ministry under great pressure to catch the culprits. The Cruciatus Curse left such lasting damage that Frank and Alice will likely spend the rest of their lives in St. Mungo’s, effectively leaving their son an orphan. They now reside at the far end of the Janus Thickey ward. Neville and Frank’s mother visit during holidays, but they can no longer recognize them. However, whenever Neville comes by, Alice likes to give him a Drooble’s Blowing Gum wrapper. She does not realize that it is worthless, but Neville appreciates it nonetheless.

    Tonks, Nymphadora Tonks, Nymphadora
    Nymphadora Tonks absolutely hates her name, so she insists on going by her last name, “Tonks.” Tonks has a pale, heart-shaped face and dark, twinkling eyes. Beyond that, it is virtually impossible to get a physical description of her. Being born a Metamorphmagus became quite handy for her because Tonks delights in changing her appearance. Her favorite seems to be to have bubblegum pink hair. She is the daughter of Andromeda (Black), whom she blames for her unfortunate name, and Ted Tonks, a Muggle-born. She rides a Comet Two Sixty.

    Tonks qualified as an Auror in 1994 (born 1973?). She excels in Concealment and Disguise for obvious reasons, but her clumsiness hampers her Stealth and Tracking abilities. Tonks is a member of the Order of the Phoenix and volunteered to be part of the Advance Guard to pick up Harry Potter in the summer of ’95. She went to the Department of Mysteries to help Harry and his friends after Death Eaters lured them there. Her Death Eater aunt, Bellatrix, knocked her unconscious and then proceeded to kill Sirius Black (Tonks’ cousin, once removed).

    Tonks spent much of the following year depressed because she was in love with fellow Order member Remus Lupin. Remus did not think they should be together because of the (15 year?) age difference and because it would be dangerous what with him being a poor werewolf. This made Tonks so unhappy she could not even change her hair color from its drab mousy brown. Her Patronus had changed to the form of a werewolf. She guarded Hogwarts grounds for most of the year as extra protection and to keep an eye on Harry. While there, she worried constantly about Remus being on a dangerous mission. In the spring, she fought the invasion of Death Eaters below the Astronomy Tower. Remus finally gave in to Tonks following the tragic events, using Fleur and Bill as an example. Her hair returned to a vibrant pink.

    Kingsley Shacklebolt is a tall, black, bald wizard who wears a single gold hoop in his ear. He speaks in a deep, slow voice. He is an Auror for the Ministry of Magic. As such, he is in charge of the hunt for Sirius Black, but since he is also a member of the Order of the Phoenix, he has been misleading the Ministry. He has the last cubicle of some row in Auror Headquarters, which is covered with Sirius stuff and a map with glowing pins. He volunteered to be part of the Advanced Guard to transport Harry Potter from his Muggle relatives’ home to Order headquarters in ’95. Kingsley was one of the Aurors who accompanied the Minister of Magic to Hogwarts when Harry was suspected of illegal activities. He Obliviated and modified the memory of Marietta Edgecombe, a student, to keep Harry out of trouble. After Voldemort’s return was widely acknowledged, Kingsley was assigned to be the secretary (and a highly efficient one at that) for the Muggle Prime Minister as undercover protection.

He volunteered to be part of the Advanced Guard to transport Harry Potter from his Muggle relatives’ home to Order headquarters. He was standing guard at the Department of Mysteries at the Ministry of Magic when afflicted by the Imperius Curse, probably by Lucius Malfoy. He tried to force his way through the door. Ministry security guard Eric Munch arrested Sturgis on August 31, 1995. The Wizengamot charged him for trespass and attempted robbery and sentenced him to 6 months in Azkaban.

    Jones, Hestia Jones, Hestia
    Hestia Jones is a pink-cheeked, black-haired witch. She is a member of the Order of the Phoenix. She volunteered to be part of the Advanced Guard to transport Harry Potter from his Muggle relatives’ home to Order headquarters. She finds Muggle potato peelers quite humorous.

    Kreacher Kreacher
    Kreacher was a house-elf at Grimmauld Place for the Black family. He has a large, snout-like nose and bloodshot, watery-gray eyes. He is so old that he has white hair growing out of his bat-like ears. He is hunchback and his skin seems too big for him. He wears a filthy rag tied like a loincloth around his middle. His life’s ambition is to have his head put on a plaque. When his beloved mistress, Mrs. Black, died, Kreacher spent many years in the house with only her screaming portrait. Consequently, he is not quite right in the head and constantly mutter as if no one can hear him (though he could be faking it). He has not cleaned in ages. He hates his mistress’s son, Sirius Black, because he is a blood traitor. If it were possible, he would refuse to follow Sirius’s orders. As it is, he does not listen to Nymphadora Tonks, who is a half-blood. When Grimmauld Place became the headquarters for the Order of the Phoenix, Kreacher insulted everyone (especially mudbloods) with his bullfrog-like voice. He was upset when Sirius insisted on defiling all the Black heirlooms and tried to save everything. He kept a horde of treasures in his nest in the boiler space of the kitchen, including his favorite picture of Bellatrix Lestrange (and perhaps Slytherin’s locket?). Since he is not really loyal to Sirius, he took advantage of being told to “get out” at Christmastime to visit the only Black family member he still respected, Narcissa Malfoy. He was instructed to keep Sirius out of the way if Harry Potter tried to contact him about a vision. Kreacher injured Buckbeak the hippogriff to keep Sirius busy and then laughed when Sirius left the house to rescue Harry. He was overjoyed that Sirius died, but to his horror, the Black estate was left to half-blood Harry Potter, including himself. Kreacher was ordered to go work at Hogwarts. He was also assigned to follow Draco Malfoy, for whom he had much respect.

    Black, Mrs. Black, Mrs.
    Mrs. Black is the mother of Sirius and Regulus Black. She was detestable and spiteful and drove Sirius to run away. Her other son, Regulus, joined the Death Eaters. She believed strongly in keeping the family bloodline clean. She thought Voldemort had the right idea about purifying the Wizarding race. Mrs. Black had a portrait of her permanently stuck to the wall of Grimmauld Place to ensure her presence even after her death. She was an old, yellow-skinned woman with clawed hands and spent her days as a portrait alternately screaming obscenities and drooling in her sleep. Her house-elf, Kreacher, stayed devoted to her even after her death. She seemed awfully attached to the Black name, perhaps she was a subscriber to inbreeding.

    Ragnok Ragnok
    Ragnok is the goblin that Bill Weasley talked to on Order business. He was not too supportive as he was still feeling anti-wizard after dealing with Ludo Bagman.

    Black, Alphard Black, Alphard
    Alphard left money to his nephew, Sirius Black, when he died.

    Black, Regulus Black, Regulus
    Regulus Black made his parents prouder than his older brother, Sirius. He joined the Death Eaters, but once he had gotten in so far and realized what he was expected to do, he changed his mind. However, service to the Dark Lord is not something one can just quit; Regulus was killed around 1980. He is very likely “R.A.B.” who swiped the Slytherin locket Horcrux of Voldemort. If that was indeed him, Regulus would have not only left the Death Eater fold but tried to redeem himself for becoming involved with the Dark Arts.

    Black, Phineas Nigellus Black, Phineas Nigellus
    Phineas Nigellus is Sirius Black’s great-great-grandfather. He has the honor of being Hogwarts’ least popular Headmaster. He has interlinking portraits in the Hogwarts Head office and a room in Grimmauld Place. Phineas Nigellus is a clever-looking wizard with a pointed beard and wears Slytherin colors. He is one of the more opinionated and obstinate portraits in the office. Phineas Nigellus disapproved of Sirius’s values and the way he lived his life, but that did not stop him from being upset when he found out that the Black line had definitively ended.

    Tonks, Andromeda Tonks, Andromeda
    Andromeda is the sister of Bellatrix (Lestrange) and Narcissa (Malfoy). The Black family disowned her after she married a Muggle-born, Ted Tonks, thus contaminating their bloodline. Their daughter, Nymphadora, is an Auror and Metamorphmagus. Andromeda was always Sirius Black’s favorite cousin.

    Scrimgeour, Rufus Scrimgeour, Rufus
    Rufus Scrimgeour has gray streaks in his mane of thick, tawny hair, bushy eyebrows and sharp yellowish eyes, all of which cause his ravaged face to resemble that of a lion. He also wears wire-rimmed spectacles. He used to be Head of the Auror office in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. Scrimgeour spent most of his career fighting Dark wizards, evidenced by the slight limp that mars his loping grace. He was elected Minister of Magic in July of 1996. The people wanted a more active and tough Minister after the disaster of Cornelius Fudge. Scrimgeour, however, did not make much more progress than his successor. He spent most of his time arresting scapegoats and begging Harry Potter to be the Ministry mascot. Even though he does not believe Potter is the “Chosen One,” Scrimgeour understands the importance of heartening the public. Immediately upon entering office, he conferred with Albus Dumbledore about meeting with Potter, but Dumbledore refused. Displeased with him, Scrimgeour sought other means of contacting Potter while having Dumbledore followed. He finally succeeded in talking with Potter during Christmas, when he forced an estranged son of the Weasley family, whom Potter was staying with, to feign a desire of seeing his family. Unfortunately, he discovered that Potter would be as uncooperative as his mentor, Albus Dumbledore. Scrimgeour had little luck getting any information out of and about either Potter or Dumbledore, even after the latter’s death.

    Bones, Amelia Susan Bones, Amelia Susan
    Amelia Bones was the Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. She had a broad-square jaw and very short gray hair. She always appeared to be a very forbidding looking woman with a booming voice. She had thick eyebrows and wore a monocle. She sat next to the Minister on trials for the Wizengammot. Amelia was killed in July 1996, possibly by Voldemort in person. The fight took place in a room locked from the inside. She lived alone but was a very gifted witch. Amelia is the aunt of Susan Bones and sister of Edgar Bones.

    Widdershins, Willy Widdershins, Willy
    Willy Widdershins is the Anti-Muggle wizard who jinxed toilets to regurgitate all over London in ’95 (Wimbledon, Bethnal Green, Elephant & Castle). He was arrested when one of the jinxes backfired; the toilet exploded and Willy was found under the ‘wreckage.’ He got off the charge for reporting Harry Potter’s meeting at the Hog’s Head to High Inquisitor Umbridge. Then he got arrested again for selling biting doorknobs to Muggles—two lost fingers and required treatment at St. Mungo’s.

    Umbridge, Dolores Jane Umbridge, Dolores Jane
    Dolores Umbridge is a squat witch with short, curly mouse-brown hair in which she places a horrible pink Alice band that matches the fluffy pink cardigan she wears over her robes. She has a pallid, toadlike face and bulging, pouchy eyes. She’ll also wear a black velvet bow on top of her head that looks like a large fly perched on top of an even larger toad. Her broad, flabby face includes a very wide, slack mouth out of which come the most infuriating statements (made all the worse by her fluttery, girlish, high-pitched voice). She uses her thick, stubby fingers with ugly old rings to hold her unusually short wand.

    The simpering witch is the Senior Undersecretary to the Minister and sits to the right of the Minister on the Wizengamot. She absolutely loathes part-humans. She drafted an anti-werewolf legislation in ’94 and campaigned to have merpeople rounded up and tagged in ’95. Also in the summer of ’95, Umbridge sent dementors after Harry Potter to silence him. When Albus Dumbledore could not find a Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher quick enough, the Ministry of Magic passed a new law that allowed them to place one. So Umbridge became the DADA professor at Hogwarts (1995-96). In September, she was elected as Hogwart’s first and only High Inquisitor to allow even more Ministry meddling. This allowed her to evaluate and dismiss other teachers, which she soon did. After Dumbledore was forced to leave Hogwarts, Umbridge instated herself as Headmistress as well.

    Her reign of terror at Hogwarts included censorship, invasion of privacy, and corporal punishment/torture. Umbridge chose a select few students and named them the Inquisitorial Squad, giving them privileges to carry out her orders. Her detentions consisted of students using a special quill to carve lines into their hands until they bled. She was even unstable enough to attempt the Cruciatus Curse on a student (Potter) in front of others. However, they tricked her into going into the Forbidden Forest where she proceeded to insult a herd of centaurs. The centaurs carried her off, but Dumbledore eventually went to retrieve her. She spent some time in the hospital wing in a state of shock, and from that point on she had an irrational fear of hoof noises. Umbridge no longer had a job at Hogwarts but was still welcome at the corrupt Ministry.

    Lovegood, Luna "Loony" Lovegood, Luna "Loony"
    Luna Lovegood is not a typical girl. It isn’t very clear why Luna is the way she is, but it isn’t a lifestyle that earns her many friends. Not that it matters much to her what other people think about her. Of the Ravenclaw class of ’99, Luna has straggly, waist-length, dirty-blonde hair and very pale eyebrows. Her protuberant, silvery eyes make her look permanently surprised and she gives off an aura of distinct dottiness. Luna’s mother passed away when she was only nine years old. Her father is the editor of The Quibbler and seems to share many of the odd qualities Luna possesses. Such as the propensity to believe only in things that have no proof (hence, the reason she believes Harry Potter).

    Luna met Harry and his friends (Ronald Weasley, Hermione Granger and Neville Longbottom) on the train at the start of her 4th year. She had already been sort of friends with Ginny Weasley. Luna is quite amused by Ronald. She has quite a few strange habits, such as: tucking her wand behind left ear for safe-keeping, collecting butterbeer caps for her necklace and blinking less than normal human beings. In support of her new Gryffindor acquaintances, Luna wears a life-size lion’s head hat that roars to Quidditch matches when her own house isn’t playing. When Ravenclaw does play, she shows her spirit by wearing an eagle with flapping wings on her head.

    By the end of her 4th year, Luna found herself more in the company of Harry and his friends. She helped Harry get the word out about Voldemort by asking her father to print his interview in The Quibbler (Hermione’s idea). She had also joined the D.A., which was almost like having friends. Luna also went with them to the Ministry of Magic to rescue Stubby Boardman. Every year, as she gets ready to go home, Luna puts up notices about missing belongings (people seem to like taking her stuff). It doesn’t seem to bother her too much; she always gets them back eventually. She empathizes with Harry when he loses a loved one. Despite her often dreamy personality, she can be quite perceptive. Luna and her father planned to go to Sweden for the summer to catch a Crumple-Horned Snorkack.

    Luna returned to school for her fifth year to a startling revelation: Harry Potter considered her a friend. Not only that, he had called her cool; it was quite a pleasant feeling. He even asked her to go to one of Prof. Slughorn’s parties with him as a friend; it was quite fun chatting with people. Luna also had the privilege of being the announcer in a Quidditch match, which was a curious experience. Prof. McGonagall seemed to think she did rather well. It was somewhat lonelier than last year since there wasn’t the D.A. to attend, so Luna would check her coin often. That was how she found out that her friends needed her help one night that spring, and she was one of only two to respond to the call. She joined Hermione in staking out Prof. Snape’s office. Luna was not able to take her O.W.L.s because they were all sent home after Headmaster Dumbledore was killed.

    “I enjoyed the meetings too. It was like having friends” (VI.138)

  • Things in Luna’s pockets: Gurdyroot (green onion?), large spotted toadstool, something that looks like a lot of cat litter.

    Lovegood, Mr. Lovegood, Mr.
    Mr. Lovegood is the editor of The Quibbler, which specializes in all things sensational. He shares this love with his daughter, Luna. It is thanks to her that The Quibbler had its best selling issue due to an exclusive interview with Harry Potter. This raised the readership of the magazine so much that they had extra money they could spend on going to Sweden to catch a Crumple-Horned Snorkack. His wife died around 1990.

    Hooper, Geoffrey Hooper, Geoffrey
    Geoffrey Hooper tried out for Keeper on the Gryffindor Quidditch team in ’95. He flew fairly well but didn’t make the team because of his reputation for whining and moaning.

    Marchbanks, Griselda Marchbanks, Griselda
    Griselda Marchbanks is tiny, stooped, wrinkly and slightly deaf. The Head of the Wizarding Examinations Authority, she is old enough to have examined Albus Dumbledore for his Transfiguration and Charms N.E.W.T.s. She was a Wizengamot elder, but she remained loyal to Dumbledore and resigned in protest of the introduction of the Hogwarts High Inquisitor. Following this, the Daily Prophet defamed her character by linking her to subversive goblin groups. Griselda is a friend of Augusta Longbottom.

    Ogden, Tiberius Ogden, Tiberius
    Tiberius Ogden was a Wizengamot elder, but he remained loyal to Albus Dumbledore and resigned in protest of the introduction of the Hogwarts High Inquisitor. He gossiped about Harry Potter’s Patronus with his friend, Professor Tofty. (Other known Ogdens: Bob Ogden, Ogden’s Old Firewhisky; Tiberius)

    Trelawney, Cassandra Patricia Trelawney, Cassandra Patricia
    Sibyll Trelawney is a very thin woman with enormous glasses that make her eyes appear far too large for her face. She wears a large amount of beads, chains and bangles and is always heavily draped in shawls. Sibyll Trelawney is the great-great-granddaughter of Cassandra Trelawney, a celebrated Seer. For this reason, Albus Dumbledore felt obligated to at least interview her for the Divination position at Hogwarts, even though he did not believe she truly had the Sight. He was shocked when she happened to have a real and important prophecy (about vanquishing the Dark Lord) during the meeting in 1980. Trelawney does not even remember it, but Dumbledore hired her, mostly to keep her safe. They had been interrupted by Severus Snape, who was also applying for a teaching position, eavesdropping on her interview. Other than the fluke premonitions that she does not realize she has (she also predicted a servant would return to Voldemort in ’94), she gets by on making vague predictions and hoping for a coincidence. She likes to predict the death of a student every year. Her favorite subject is Harry Potter, whom she always looks at with a tragic expression. She spends almost all of her time in her tower, clouded by the vapors. She speaks in a misty, dreamy voice (when composed). Trelawney was put on probation and then fired by High Inquisitor Umbridge in ’96. Dumbledore let her stay at Hogwarts because he was afraid Voldemort might try to get the prophecy out of her. She was reinstated to partial teaching duties the following year with Umbridge gone. She resented having to share the Divination classes with a centaur. Her tarot cards kept showing her a lightning-struck tower, but Dumbledore refused to listen. Trelawney likes to get inebriated on cooking sherry.

    Edgecombe, Marietta Edgecombe, Marietta
    Marietta Edgecombe has curly, reddish-blonde hair. Her mother works in the Ministry of Magic. She is likely in the Ravenclaw class of ’97 as she is friends with Cho Chang. Cho dragged her along to join the D.A. She does not trust Harry Potter and ended up betraying the D.A. to Prof. Umbridge. Hermione Granger had hexed the sign-up parchment so that she got purple pustules on her nose and cheeks that spelled out ‘sneak,’ which she still has not figured out how to get rid of completely.

    Corner, Michael Corner, Michael
    Michael Corner is a dark boy in the Ravenclaw class of ’98. He is friends with Anthony Goldstein and Terry Boot. He dated Ginny Weasley after hitting it off with her after the Yule Ball. She later dumped him for being a baby during the Quidditch final of ’96. He then hooked up with Cho Chang. Michael was a D.A. member.

    Smith, Zacharias Smith, Zacharias
    Zacharias Smith is a tall, skinny and blonde Hufflepuff with an upturned nose. He is aggressive in voice as well as face. He plays Chaser for the Hufflepuff Quidditch team. Zacharias announced the first Quidditch match in ’96. Never one to keep his mouth closed, he unwisely spent most of the game insulting the Gryffindor team. Consequently, Ginny Weasley, a Gryffindor Chaser, “accidentally” crashed into him in the commentator’s podium leaving him in a daze. She had already hexed him earlier in the year for annoying her. Zacharias was a skeptical D.A. member. He left Hogwarts the day after Albus Dumbledore’s murder in ’97. Any relation to Hepzibah Smith, descendent of Hufflepuff?

    Karkus Karkus
    Karkus was the Gurg of the giants when Rubeus Hagrid visited. He was 22-23 feet tall and weighed as much as a couple of bull elephants. He had skin like rhino hide. Karkus seemed to be yielding to Hagrid’s entreaties when he was killed by rival giant Golgamath.

    Golgamath Golgamath
    Golgamath has black hair and teeth and a necklace of bones. He is sympathetic to the Death Eater cause, so he killed the current Gurg, Karkus. He tossed Karkus’s head into a lake and took over as Gurg.

    Dawlish Dawlish
    Dawlish is a tough-looking Auror with very short, wiry hair. He achieved ‘Outstandings’ on all his N.E.W.T.s. He seems to be the Minister of Magic’s personal henchman; first for Cornelius Fudge and then for Rufus Scrimgeour. He was taken out when Albus Dumbledore escaped arrest in April ’96. In June, he and others tried to take Rubeus Hagrid away, and in the process attacked an unsuspecting Minerva McGonagall. During the following school year, Dawlish was stationed in Hogsmeade to give Hogwarts extra protection. The Minister also ordered him to follow Dumbledore to find out what he does; Dawlish got another hexing for his effort. He gives Aurors such a shining reputation.

    Ravenclaw Chaser.

    Grawp Grawp
    Grawp is a son of the giantess Fridwulfa. His head looks like a mossy boulder (larger in proportion than the human head) and is almost perfectly round. He has tight, curling, close-growing, and bracken colored hair and small muddy-greenish brown eyes. He also has large, fleshy ears, no neck and a broad back. His nose is stubby and shapeless, and his lopsided mouth is full of yellow, misshapen teeth the size of half-bricks. He has enormous, filthy feet and hands the size of beach umbrellas. He wears a badly sewn animal skin frock. Despite his size, he has surprising speed and agility.

    His half-brother, Hagrid, met him on a mission for the Order of the Phoenix and brought him back to Hogwarts. Grawp is smallish and was supposedly bullied by the other giants. His mother did not like him because he was runty, only 16 feet tall. Still, he is a giant and is strong enough to rip trees out of the ground for fun. He sometimes attacks Hagrid when he’s in a bad mood, so he needs to be kept tied up all the time. Grawp eats birds and deer. Hagrid seemed to make slight headway in domesticating him, because Grawp started missing Hagrid when he was gone and chased a herd of centaurs off from harming Harry Potter and Hermione Granger, whom he had recognized as Hagrid’s friends.

    Magorian Magorian
    Magorian is a chestnut centaur. He has a proud, high cheekbone face and long black hair. He seems to be the leader of the centaur herd in the Forbidden Forest and resolute on not submitting to humans.

    The Carrows did not try to find Voldemort after his fall.

    Greyback, Fenrir Greyback, Fenrir
    Fenrir Greyback is a big, gangly werewolf. In his human form, he has matted gray hair, whiskers and a rasping bark of a voice. Death Eater robes look tight on him. He smells like dirt, sweat and blood (at least during battles). He also has filthy hands with long, yellowish nails and pointed teeth. Greyback is known as the most savage werewolf alive today. He thinks it is his mission in life to bite and contaminate as many people as possible. He would like to create enough werewolves to overcome wizards. Greyback specializes in children; bite them young, take them away, and raise them to hate normal wizards. He cruelly positions himself near potential victims so he can be sure of attacking his targets. He is responsible for turning Remus Lupin, whose father had offended him.

    The Death Eater did not try to find Voldemort after his fall, though he did return to his services later. The Dark Lord promises him prey in return for marshalling his fellow werewolves and threatening uncooperative families. Greyback is a family friend of the Malfoys. By request of Draco Malfoy, he made sure Borgin worked on repairing the Vanishing Cabinet in ’96-’97. Part of a group of Death Eaters that infiltrated Hogwarts in ’97, he witnessed Albus Dumbledore’s murder at the top of the Astronomy Tower. He also mauled Bill Weasley while in human form; he has developed a taste for human flesh that cannot be satisfied once a month.

    Slughorn, Horace E. F. "old Sluggy" Slughorn, Horace E. F. "old Sluggy"
    Horace Slughorn began his career at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry about the same time as Albus Dumbledore. As a young teacher, he had thick, shiny, straw-colored hair; though by that time, he already had a bald patch the size of a Galleon. He had a gingery blond moustache, short legs and little feet. He has prominent, yet pale, gooseberry eyes. He was the Potions Master and Head of Slytherin House. Slughorn loves to be in the company famous, powerful and/or successful people. To be precise, he loves thinking that he has influenced them. For that reason, teaching was well suited to his tastes. He would handpick students who he thought were smart or talented in some way and make them his favorites. He has a pretty impressive reputation for selecting those who go on to become successful. He even formed a club out of these favorites that came to be known as the Slug Club. Slughorn uses the club to create useful contacts among the members while reaping some sort of benefit for himself.

    One particular blemish on his record, though, was his fondness for Tom Riddle, later to be known as Lord Voldemort. Just as Slughorn had a knack for cultivating potential, young Riddle had a knack for charming everyone around him. He was so pleased with the boy that he even obliged him when asked about Horcruxes, a very dark matter. Years later, Slughorn would regard this as a very shameful moment. Despite his backseat ambitions, he stays away from criminals to keep his image untarnished. Voldemort and his Death Eaters would like to use his talents for coercion, murder and torture, but Slughorn has always resisted.

    In 1996, Dumbledore asked Slughorn to come out of retirement to teach at Hogwarts again. Slughorn hesitated, claiming he was old and times were dangerous. He had been on the move for a year, just in case Death Eaters were after him. By that time he was an enormous, bald man with an enormous silver walrus mustache. He loved lavishness and indulgence; he stayed in Muggle homes whose owners were on vacation while on the run. Dumbledore managed to convince him to return to Hogwarts by tempting him with the famous Harry Potter. Slughorn could not resist, so that year he took over as Potions Master once again. He soon discovered that the reason Dumbledore had wanted him there was so he could solicit his memory of Voldemort’s inquiry about Horcruxes. Reluctant to give up a memory that showed him in such a negative light, and in hindsight had caused so much damage, Slughorn tampered with the memory. He pretended that he had refused to answer Riddle’s question. Dumbledore then had Harry Potter try to coax the real memory out of him. Slughorn finally relented after getting drunk celebrating his acquirement of valuable acromantula venom. Following Dumbledore’s murder and Severus Snape’s departure, Slughorn will likely take over as Head of Slytherin House.

    Vane, Romilda Vane, Romilda
    Romilda Vane is a bold Gryffindor of the class of 2000. She has long, black hair, large, dark eyes and a prominent chin. When Harry Potter became widely proclaimed as the “Chosen One” in ’96, Romilda developed an obsession with him. She even tried out for Gryffindor Keeper so she could be near him. Before Christmas, she attempted to slip Harry a love potion in the form of Chocolate Cauldrons hoping to be invited to a party. Sadly, the scheme did not work, though she did win the love of his best friend, Ron Weasley, several months later (albeit only briefly and unknown to her).

    McLaggen, Cormac "King Slug" McLaggen, Cormac "King Slug"
    Cormac McLaggen is a large Gryffindor in the class of ’97. The wiry-haired McLaggen has an aggressive and belligerent personality. He missed Quidditch tryouts in ’95 when he was stuck in the hospital wing after eating a pound of doxy eggs on a bet. He was able to tryout in ’96, but lost the Keeper position when he blocked only 4 of 5 goals. On the last one, he flew in the entirely wrong direction; he was Confunded at how that could possibly have happened. His failure to make the team infuriated him, and he accused the Captain, Harry Potter, of favoring his friends.

    Luckily for him, the appointed Keeper, Ron Weasley, missed the second Quidditch match of the season after being poisoned. McLaggen naturally took his place and decided to give the rest of the team, including the Captain, pointers on how to improve their play. He obsessed over strategies and instructions throughout the week, well into the actual match. He spent so much time criticizing the others that he managed to not save any goals. Believing he could play every position better himself, he took the bat from Jimmy Peakes and proceeded to whack a bludger at his Captain. Due to their Seeker having a cracked skull, the team lost the match. Suffice it to say, McLaggen did not play in any more matches.

    McLaggen’s social life fared slightly better in his last year at Hogwarts. It certainly did not hurt that he had some prominent connections. His Uncle Tiberius has taken him nogtail hunting with Bertie Higgs and Rufus Scrimgeour (Minister of Magic). This gained him entrance into the Slug Club, which garnered invitations to several parties thrown by Professor Slughorn. He attended the Christmas party with fellow Gryffindor Hermione Granger. McLaggen thought they had a good time together, until she mysteriously disappeared. Who wouldn’t want to hear him talk about Quidditch?

    Ogden, Bob Ogden, Bob
    Bob Ogden was Head of the Magical Law Enforcement Squad. He was a short, plump man with enormously thick glasses that gave him mole-like eyes. Ogden responded to an incident in Little Hangleton where Morfin Gaunt used magic on a Muggle, Tom Riddle, in 1925. After witnessing Marvolo Gaunt mistreat his daughter, Merope, there was a conflict between Ogden and the Gaunt men. Ogden returned with reinforcements to arrest them. The memory of this event was passed on to Albus Dumbledore shortly before his death. (Other known Ogdens: Tiberius Ogden, Ogden’s Old Firewhisky)

    Gaunt, Morfin Gaunt, Morfin
    Morfin Gaunt, son of Marvolo, came from the ancestral line of Salazar Slytherin. From Slytherin, he inherited the ability to speak to snakes, Parseltongue. His penchant for playing in trees contributed to his thick hair being so matted with dirt, the color was indistinguishable. Each of his small, dark eyes stare in opposite directions, and he has missing teeth.

    Raised to despise Muggles, Morfin decided to punish a local Muggle, Tom Riddle, because he knew his sister, Merope, liked him. His indiscretion brought a Ministry official, Bob Ogden, to his house with a trial date. Morfin had no patience for the man, so he hexed him. He would get three years in Azkaban for attacking Muggles and Ministry employees.

    After being released from Azkaban, Morfin lived alone in the Gaunt home, both Marvolo and Merope dead. One day, a teenage boy visited looking very much like the Muggle he had attacked years ago. Tom Riddle Jr. learned from Morfin that his father and grandparents still lived in town. The next day, the Riddles were dead, and Morfin had the memory of murdering them. When the officials came, he happily admitted to the crime, earning himself a life sentence in Azkaban. In the last weeks of Morfin’s life, Albus Dumbledore extracted the memories from Riddle’s visit. Upon discovering that Morfin had been framed, Dumbledore tried to get him released, but Morfin died before a decision could be made. He spent the remainder of his days worried that he had lost his father’s cherished ring.

    Gaunt, Marvolo Gaunt, Marvolo
    Marvolo Gaunt, father of Morfin and Merope, descended from the proud line of Salazar Slytherin. He was an oddly proportioned man who looks more like a monkey with broad shoulders and long arms, though he was shorter than his son. He had bright brown eyes, short scrubby hair and a wrinkled face. His ancestors squandered their gold, so he and his children lived in a dirty little house on the edge of Little Hangleton. Their family inherited the ability to speak Parseltongue from Slytherin. Marvolo detested Muggles and thought himself superior, though he lived in poverty. His most precious possessions were the heirlooms that proved their relation to Slytherin: a ring and a locket. Marvolo wore the ring until he died.

    When Morfin got in trouble with the Ministry of Magic for using magic on a Muggle, Marvolo thought he had done nothing wrong. However, he became enraged when he discovered his daughter, Merope, had taken a liking to said Muggle, Tom Riddle. The Ministry official, Bob Ogden, tried to stop him from abusing Merope. With both Marvolo and Morfin attacking him, Ogden went for backup. Marvolo spent six months in Azkaban, which was not good for his health. He returned to his home to find it empty and was shocked to learn his daughter had eloped with the Muggle. He died not long afterward.

    Riddle, Merope (Gaunt) Riddle, Merope (Gaunt)
    Merope Gaunt, daughter of Marvolo, was one of the last remaining descendants of Salazar Slytherin. She wore a locket that was an heirloom of his. Living in filth and mistreated by her family, Merope had limp, dull hair and a pale, heavy face. Like Morfin, her eyes stared in different directions. Her father thought she was a Squib, but she was merely terrified of him.

    Merope did not quite share the hatred of Muggles that her family had, at least not when it came to Tom Riddle. An attack on him and subsequently a Ministry official put Marvolo and Morfin in prison. Left to her own devices, Merope decided to encourage Riddle into falling in love with her by using magic (either a love potion or the Imperius Curse) on him. Demonstrating that she was not indeed a Squib, she and Riddle ran off to elope. When she became pregnant, she stopped using magic on him in hopes that he would stay with her of his own accord. He didn’t. He returned to Little Hangleton renouncing the marriage and had no interest in the baby. Meanwhile, Merope stopped using magic either because she did not want to be a witch anymore or her unrequited love sapped her of her powers. Alone in London, she naively sold Slytherin’s locket at Borgin and Burkes for a mere 10 Galleons. Merope no longer cared about her ancestry, she was too depressed to do anything. She gave birth to a baby boy within an hour of entering a Muggle orphanage and then died within another hour. Though the lineage she passed on to her son, Tom Marvolo Riddle Jr., was a source of pride; the fact that she chose death over her baby incurred his scorn. Leaving him like a cast off with Muggles, Merope had given birth to the future Dark Lord, Voldemort.

    Peakes, Jimmy Peakes, Jimmy
    Jimmy Peakes is in the Gryffindor class of 2001. He joined the House Quidditch team in ’96. Peakes is short but has a broad chest, so he makes a strong Beater. He and his fellow Beater helped catch their Captain, Harry Potter, when he was knocked off his broom in one of the matches. This happened after the Keeper stole his bat to show him how to crack the skull of your own team’s Seeker (Peakes was only skilled at leaving egg-sized lumps). Nevertheless, he helped the team win the Quidditch Cup that season.

In 1926, she helped deliver the baby of a girl who showed up on their doorstep and died immediately after giving birth. The baby, named Tom Marvolo Riddle, stayed at the orphanage. He was a strange boy and made both the workers and children uneasy with odd incidents. Eleven years later, Mrs. Cole had a visit from Albus Dumbledore, who offered Tom a place at his school. He questioned her about Tom (and loosened her tongue with liquor and magic).

    Smith, Hepzibah Smith, Hepzibah
    Hepzibah Smith was a distant descendent of Helga Hufflepuff, one of the founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The immensely fat lady wore an ornate ginger wig. In the late 1940s, the old lady delighted in the visits of the handsome and charming young Borgin and Burkes assistant, Tom Riddle. As she was very rich, she loved collecting valuable magical items, so her house looked like a cross between an antique shop and a conservatory. Hepzibah’s most treasured possessions were Hufflepuff’s cup and Salazar Slytherin’s locket. In an attempt to impress Riddle, she brought these artifacts out to show him. Unfortunately, it proved to be a deadly decision. She died two days later, officially because her elderly house-elf, Hokey, mistakenly poisoned her cocoa. However, the more logical theory is that Riddle, consumed with greed, murdered her and framed her house-elf so he could steal the cup and locket. By the time her family realized they were gone, the future Dark Lord had vanished.

    Rosier Rosier
    Rosier was one of the Death Eaters who waited at the Hog’s Head while Voldemort went up to Hogwarts seeking a teaching position in the ’50s. Likely the father of Evan Rosier.
