Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and considered to be the modern Merlin in terms of his magical ability. Like any good old, wise guy, he's extremely vague about everything important he says; he is also humorously eccentric. Founded the Order of the Phoenix, the organization that spearheads the fight against [[BigBad Voldemort]]; most of the characters in the series are personally loyal to him. He dies at the hands of Snape, but is ultimately revealed to have planned it beforehand as part of an elaborate BatmanGambit.

him.



A former classmate of Harry's dead parents, Snape is now a teacher at Hogwarts who seems to hate Harry on sight. The reason is because of Harry's resemblance to his father, James Potter, whom Snape had a mutual, bitter, and hate-filled rivalry with (extending to James' friends) and that he was once a Death Eater but has returned to the light side for some unspecified reason. Whether he is genuinely with the Order of the Phoenix or the Death Eaters becomes a major point of contention for many characters and fans. He is Hogwarts' resident SadistTeacher (at least until Book 5).

In the sixth book, it's revealed that Snape was the spy who gave Voldemort the (incomplete) prophecy, leading to the murder of Harry's parents. In the ''seventh'' book, it's revealed that he and Harry's mother, Lily Evans, were best friends since childhood, and he subsequently fell in love with her, though she cut off said friendship when he referred to her as "mudblood" during a fight. When his actions as Voldemort's spy led Voldemort to begin hunting her, he was [[TheAtoner instantly remorseful]]. This is how Dumbledore knew his repentance was genuine, and ever since, he has helped the Order protect Harry because Lily died to save Harry's life. His actions also played a part in Harry's survival as a baby; Lily's protective charm was only possible because Voldemort gave her the chance to step aside but she chose to sacrifice herself protecting Harry instead, and she only had this opportunity because Snape had begged Voldemort to spare her. His patronus is a doe, the same as Lily's, and it was he who sent his Patronus to Harry in ''Deathly Hallows'' when he was lost in the woods, guiding him to the Sword of Gryffindor in a frozen pond.

Professor of Transfiguration, Deputy Headmistress, and Head of Gryffindor House. She is the third professor Harry encounters (after Hagrid and Quirrell), and he promptly decides that she is someone "not to be crossed." He's right. Stern but fair, [=McGonagall=] is protective of her students and ''really'' dislikes it when Snape wins the Quidditch Cup from under her nose. Though she takes no crap from anyone, she does have a sense of humor -- she assists Peeves during Umbridge's reign of terror and turns a blind eye to the Weasley twins' antics during that year. In fact, she has several [[Awesome/HarryPotter Crowning Moments of Awesome]] during ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Order of the Phoenix]]'', up to and including shutting down Umbridge at every opportunity. She is Dumbledore's right hand, deputy leader of the Order, and a powerful witch in her own right, and she is probably the teacher Harry trusts the most. Her Animagus form is that of a tabby cat with spectacle markings around her eyes, reminiscent of her glasses. She has a fondness for tartan and Ginger Newts. [[RunningGag If she walks into a scene and is startled, expect her to drop the stack of books she is always carrying]].

The short professor of Charms and Head of Ravenclaw House. A cheerful man who usually stands on a pile of books while addressing his class. Like Sprout, cheerful and fair to his students. Not a member of the Order, but loyal to Dumbledore and a former Duelist. He displayed the former under the rules of both Umbridge and Voldemort and the latter in the Battle of Hogwarts.

An old friend of Dumbledore's and, until 1981, the Potions Master and Head of Slytherin House. In 1996, he returned to his post as Potions Master, and in 1997, resumed his post as Head of Slytherin. He runs an informal organization nicknamed the Slug Club, which is an invitation-only club of students whom Slughorn believes will be successful. He has recruited Tom Riddle, Harry Potter, and Hermione Granger into this club.

The Hogwarts Keeper of Keys, gamekeeper, groundskeeper, Care of Magical Creatures professor and a half-giant as well. Hagrid was the one who explained the wizarding world to Harry, and remains his friend throughout Harry's years at Hogwarts. He also has an unusual affection towards vicious beasts, including [[SamusIsAGirl Norbert]] the Norwegian Ridgeback ([[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragon]]), Fluffy ([[Myth/GreekMythology three-headed dog]]), Aragog ([[GiantSpider acromantula]]), and Blast-ended Skrewts. Also has a thing for alcohol.

By the fifth and sixth books, he has become Dumbledore's recruiting agent, and tries to recruit several giants to fight Voldemort. It doesn't go over so well. Hey, at least he didn't die.

At the end of the book, he's unsurprisingly exposed as a fraud. It turns out he used his one real talent, Memory Charms, to take credit for the accomplishments of others. When he tries to silence Harry and Ron, the Memory Charm backfires due to him using Ron's broken wand and Lockhart [[HoistByHisOwnPetard accidentally erases his own memory]]. Three books later, Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny visit St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries, where it's revealed Lockhart is now a permanent resident.



Introduced as a (temporary) teacher at Hogwarts, Lupin turns out to have been one of James Potter's best friends when they were all in school together. Also, as his MeaningfulName might suggest, he's a werewolf. A member of the Order of the Phoenix. Only one to exit the Battle at the Ministry unharmed, except Dumbledore.

Mind you, Mulciber was a part of a group who would become the Death Eaters and while the Maruders only ever got into fights with Snape (really only James and to a lesser extent Sirius while Lupin and Peter followed), Snape's gangs targeted all sorts of people.
