The Bloody Baron is the Slytherin ghost. He has blank staring eyes, a gaunt face and a robe stained with silver blood. He is a silent specter but also the most intimidating. He is the only one who has some control over Peeves the poltergeist. He enjoys groaning and clanking around the Astronomy Tower.

de Mimsy-Porpington, Sir Nicholas "Nearly Headless Nick" de Mimsy-Porpington, Sir Nicholas "Nearly Headless Nick"
Nearly Headless Nick is the Gryffindor ghost. He got his nickname because of his faulty beheading. He was hit 45 times on the right side of his neck with a blunt axe which left his head still barely attached. He died October 31, 1492 and celebrated his 500th deathday a few years back. He was also briefly petrified. Nick wears a plumed hat, a tunic with ruff and tights. He has long, curly hair. He wants to join the Headless Hunt but does not qualify because of half an inch of skin and sinew. He was afraid of death and chose to remain behind.

The Fat Friar is a cheerful Hufflepuff ghost.

Grey Lady Grey Lady
Ravenclaw ghost.

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.

Peeves the Poltergeist Peeves the Poltergeist
Peeves is the resident poltergeist at Hogwarts. He is a little man with wicked dark eyes and a wide mouth and face. He wears a belled hat. The drive of his existence is to cause trouble and throw things. He loves to torment and tease people. Peeves plagued Prof. Umbridge mercilessly after Fred & George Weasley told him to. Most people think he is a menace, but the headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, has never wanted to drive him out. The only one Peeves is afraid of is the Bloody Baron.
