Dolores Umbridge

“What Cornelius doesn’t know won’t hurt him.”

Dolores Jane Umbridge is a power-hungry Ministry of Magic official. Deeply prejudiced, controlling and sadistic, Umbridge is a nightmare in pink, bows frills and flounces. Her hobbies include collecting the ‘Frolicsome Feline’ ornamental plate range and inventing instruments of torture.

Professor Slughorn

“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.
