Aurors
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.

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.

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.

Proudfoot Proudfoot
Proudfoot is an Auror stationed at Hogsmeade in ’96 for extra protection at Hogwarts.

Robards, Gawain Robards, Gawain
Gawain Robards succeeded Rufus Scrimgeour as Head of the Auror office in 1996.

Savage Savage
Savage is an Auror stationed at Hogsmeade in ’96 for extra protection at Hogwarts.

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.

Shacklebolt, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Kingsley
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.

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.
