“To friendship! To generosity! To ten Galleons a hair!”
Professor H. E. F. Slughorn enjoys his “creature comforts”, from velvet smoking jackets to crystallised pineapple. He was (reluctantly) winkled out of retirement to resume his post as Potions Master at Hogwarts. “Old Sluggy” is a very influential teacher – he cherry-picks particularly bright or talented students for his Slug Club at Hogwarts, and is always happy to give a leg-up to his favourites.
