Filch & Mrs Norris

“Guilty conscience, eh?”

Filch is the embittered, unlovely, cantankerous old Hogwarts caretaker. Along with his beloved Mrs Norris, Filch patrols the school corridors looking for rule-breakers. Filch is a squib and deeply resents Hogwarts students for their magical abilities. In his downtime, Filch’s hobbies include oiling old torture instruments, writing lists of banned items and plotting the expulsion of Peeves.

Professor Binns

The most exciting thing that ever happened in Binns’ classes was his entering the room through the blackboard.

Professor Binns teaches History of Magic, which in his hands becomes the most boring subject ever devised by wizardkind. He is unable to remember the names of any of his students, and renders even the most dramatic episodes of wizarding history desperately dull. Binns is, at least, very dedicated to his post – even his own death didn’t prevent him from teaching.
