Why is it called the Ultra-Complete Harry Potter Encyclopedia? Because every character who was ever mentioned in the books, from main characters to people whose names are mentioned once in passing, to students who you only meet during the Sorting, is in here. At least, every one I noticed (if you find any I missed, e-mail me their name, which book they're in, and the page number to Why is there any point to this? Because J. K. Rowling almost never just creates a character and leaves it in the nether world of just a name. She almost always brings them up later, and as key characters!

For instance, we first hear about Sirius Black in one of these offhand name-mentions in the beginning of book 1, when Hagrid says he borrowed the motorcycle "from young Sirius Black." We don't see his name again until book three, but when we do he's one of the most important characters in the book! So pay close attention to the people with only a sentence or two, they could figure big in later books!


P.S. If this suddenly looks a lot more correct and complete, and includes such seemingly obvious people as Harry Potter who I may have somehow missed, it is thanks to supercool Lisl-Bisl. And I would like to thank my new favorite person, Ms. Chelsea, who alerted me to the omission of Mr. Borgin and Mr., Mr. Obalonsk--... no... Many thanks also to the many unmentioned people who have sent me corrections and additions. I really appreciate it. If you helped me out, remind me so I can post my thanks to you, here, too. Keep checking up on me. I am not, all evidence to the contrary notwithstanding, infallible...

* * *You may have noticed that, just as I predicted, Nott and Macnair appeared in book five in greater detail. In entering the new characters, I came across the fact that Sturgis Podmore shares a last name with Sir Patrick-Delaney (aka Properly-Decapitated, look either of them up below if you'd like more info). Interesting! Intentional, or accidental coincidence? If it was intentional, will this come up in future books? And, is Fortescue, the ex-Hogwarts Headmaster, the same person as or related to our friend Florean Fortescue? I've also added the authors of the books that have been mentioned in the series, after noticing that one of the Divination books was written by a Cassandra Vablatsky and wondering if this had anything to do with Sybill Trelawney's great-grandmother, Cassandra Trelawney. Anyway, there's still much more to discover about the Harry Potter characters and the relationships between them, so keep an eye out! * * *

Of course, finding and typing up all this information took ages and ages of work, so please don't take this information without asking. See copyright at bottom of page. Enjoy the Potterpedia!  Look!

He has gotten himself into some trouble gambling with goblins, making him unable to pay what he owes to Fred and George Weasley. He has round blue eyes, short blonde hair, a bludger-squashed nose, and a rosy complexion. He looks like a once powerfully built man gone slightly to seed. He is much more jovial than Bartemius Crouch and also much more lax about rules.

Bane: a black-haired and bodied wild centaur.

Barnabus the Barmy: wizard on the tapestry outside the Room of Requirement, being clubbed to death by trolls.

Sirius Black: Harry's godfather. When he was at Hogwarts he was best friends with James Potter, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew. He was very best friends with James, and was his best man when James married Lily. He was going to be the Potters' Secret Keeper, but at the last moment he changed it to Peter, who promptly told Voldemort, who killed the Potters. Everyone believed Sirius had given away the Secret, so he was arrested and taken to Azkaban. But he escaped in Harry's third year, and came to visit Harry. They found out he was innocent, but then Peter Pettigrew disappeared once more, and Sirius was forced to go back into hiding. He is an Animagus who can turn into a large black dog. Member of the Order now and when it was originally formed.

Regulus Black: Sirius' younger brother, who died fifteen years ago after having joined the Death Eaters, murdered by Voldemort or on his orders, having gotten in too far and then tried to get out.

Mrs. Black: Sirius' mum. A portrait, she is an old woman with yellowing skin (although that could be due to the aging of the painting) and a black cap. She heartily resents the presence of the Order in her house.

Blode: an Unspeakable. Works in the Department of Mysteries, along with Croaker. Supposed to be Bode, or just coincidence?

He was later murdered, just when finally beginning to regain speech, by a potted Devil's Snare.

Bole: Beater for the Slytherin Quidditch team.

Pierre Bonaccord: first Supreme Mugwump of the International Confederation of Warlocks, whose appointment was contested by the Wizarding community of Liechtenstein, because he wanted to stop troll-hunting and give the trolls rights, but Liechtenstein was having trouble with vicious mountain trolls.

Amelia Susan Bones: Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. According to Tonks, she's fair. She is a broad, square-jawed witch with very short gray hair, a monocle, and a forbidding look.

Although much of the village believed him guilty, he was kept as the gardener of the home. He was later killed by Lord Voldemort when he stumbled upon them in the Riddle house.

Millicent Bulstrode: a Slytherin in Harry's year who dueled with Hermione. Hermione tried to turn into Millicent using Polyjuice Potion in her second year, but ended up turning into Millicent's cat.

Bungy: The budgy who lives at the Five Feathers in Barnsley, and has learned how to water-ski to keep cool.


Sir Cadogan: the short, squat knight in the portrait who helps Harry, Ron, and Hermione find the Divination Tower during their third year. He rides (rather badly) a fat dapple-gray pony and volunteered to guard the Gryffindor tower when the Fat Lady had been scared by Sirius Black's attempted entry.

Owen Cauldwell: a Hufflepuff three years below Harry.

Chambers: Ravenclaw Chaser.

Cho Chang: the lovely Seeker for the Ravenclaw Quidditch team. Harry has a crush on her. She went to the Yule Ball with Cedric Diggory making Harry incredibly jealous, then went out, briefly, with Harry in his fifth year, which didn't work out too well, then with Michael Corner. Member of Dumbledore's Army.

Penelope Clearwater: a Ravenclaw girl with long, curly hair. Percy Weasley's girlfriend.

Connolly: Beater for the Irish Quidditch team.

Michael Corner: A Ravenclaw boy in Dumbledore's Army; "the dark one" of the three Ravenclaw boys, according to Hermione. Dated Ginny at the beginning of her fourth year, having met her at the Yule Ball and started dating her at the end of her third year.

Vincent Crabbe: a Slytherin in Harry's year who hangs around with Draco Malfoy and is tall, with a pudding bowl haircut and a thick neck. He replaced Derrick and Bole as a Beater on the Slytherin Quidditch team. His father is a Death Eater; one of the ones pursuing Harry and Co. in the Department of Mysteries.

Elfrida Cragg: a witch who has a portrait in the Ministry, into which Everard ran to get a better look when Arthur Weasley was attacked.

Dennis Creevy: a Gryffindor three years younger than Harry; the younger brother of Colin Creevy. He has mousy hair and is the smallest of his year.

Croaker: an Unspeakable. Works at the Department of Mysteries, with Blode

Doris Crockford: a wizardess who kept on shaking Harry's hand in the Leaky Cauldron.

Crookshanks: Hermione's exceptionally smart bandy-legged ginger cat, who took to attacking Scabbers, much to Ron's dismay. It turned out he did this because he had learned from Sirius about Scabbers' true identity. Rowling has implied in an interview that he is part-Kneazle.

Bartemius Crouch (senior): the late Head of the Department of International Magical Cooperation, where he was Percy's boss. He was very uptight about rules, and showed it most severely by imprisoning his own son in Azkaban for involvement with Voldemort. He speaks over two hundred languages, including Mermish, Gobbledegook, and Troll. He was a judge for the Triwizard Tournament. He used to be Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, where he prosecuted many Dark wizards back when Voldemort was in strength. He was lined up to become the Minister of Magic, but got shunted sideways when his son died in Azkaban and people began to think he had been insufficient in raising his own son. At the Quidditch World Cup he wore a crisp suit and tie, short gray hair parted unnaturally straight, and a toothbrush mustache. And of course, highly polished shoes.

Bartemius Crouch (junior): Voldemort's most faithful Death Eater, who was sent to Azkaban by his father. His mother, however, convinced his father to help sneak him out and leave her inside in his place, where she died a year later. He was then forced to wear an Invisibility Cloak and live under the Imperius Curse, watched over by Winky He began to escape the curse every once and a while. Winky convinced his father to let him go to the Quidditch World Cup, where he stole Harry’s wand and sent up the Dark Mark. Then one day Voldemort came and took him, putting his father under the Imperius Curse. Young Barty Crouch went to Hogwarts disguised as Mad-Eye Moody in order to guide Harry to the Triwizard Cup, a Portkey that took Harry to Voldemort.


Roger Davies: Captain and Chaser of the Ravenclaw Quidditch team. He went to the Yule Ball with Fleur Delacour. Somewhat the ladies man of Hogwarts. Asked Cho out at one point.

Dawlish: a tough-looking wizard with short, wiry hair, an Auror with the Ministry. He received Outstanding in all his N.E.W.T.s.

Caradoc Dearborn: Member of the Original Order who vanished six months after the photo. They never found his body.

Fleur Delacour: a beautiful part-veela from Beauxbatons, who was one of the champions in the Triwizard Tournament. She has silvery blonde hair down to her waist, large, deep-blue eyes, and white, even teeth. Her wand is nine and a half inches long, made of rosewood and veela hair. She took "a lot of private lessons" with Bill Weasley while working at Gringotts to "eemprove 'er Eeenglish."

Gabrielle Delacour: the younger sister of Fleur Delacour and the thing Fleur is most likely to miss. Harry rescued her during the second task when Fleur was unable to reach her, having been attacked by grindylows.

Derrick: Beater for the Slytherin Quidditch team.

Dilys Derwent: an elderly witch with long silver ringlets who was Headmistress of Hogwarts from 1741-1768. She also has a portrait at St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries, having been a Healer there from 1722-1741.

Dedalus Diggle: a squeaky, excitable wizard and member of the Order now and when it was originally formed who, when Voldemort was defeated, shot shooting stars all over Kent. He bowed to Harry in a shop once, and was in the Leaky Cauldron upon Harry's first encounter with the wizarding world.

Amos Diggory: father of Cedric Diggory. He has a ruddy face and a scrubby brown beard, and he works in the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures. He's rather pompous when it comes to the fact that Cedric beat Harry Potter in a Quidditch match in Harry's third year.

Cedric Diggory: a handsome Hufflepuff two years above Harry. He has a straight nose, dark hair, and gray eyes. He is the Hogwarts Champion in the Triwizard Tournament, and supported by most of the school. He was also the captain of the Hufflepuff Quidditch team. He went to the Yule Ball with Cho Chang, Harry's secret crush. But he was a generally nice and decent person. He tied with Harry in the Triwizard Tournament, but was soon killed by Voldemort when the Triwizard Cup turned out to be a Portkey that transported the two winners into Voldemort's presence. His wand is twelve and a quarter inches long, springy, and made of ash and unicorn hair.

Dimitrov: Chaser for the Bulgarian Quidditch team.

Harold Dingle: reckoned he could sell Dean Thomas and Seamus Finnigan some firewhiskey for their end-of-O.W.L.s celebration. A student?

Professor Dippet: a frail-looking old wizard, who was a teacher when Moaning Myrtle was a student. (So was Voldemort.) He was also a headmaster, predecessor to Dumbledore.

Emma Dobbs: a student of Hogwarts three years below Harry.

Dobby: a house elf formerly owned by the Malfoys but freed when Lucius tossed Dobby a sock. He has large green tennis ball eyes, a pencil nose, and batlike ears. He works at Hogwarts and is actually paid. He wears a tea cozy hat, horseshoe tie, children's soccer shorts, and various odd socks. He is a big fan of Harry's and almost killed him several times in book two while trying to save his life.

Antonin Dolohov: a Death Eater with a long, pale, twisted face, convicted of the brutal murders of Gideon and Fabian Prewett. Escaped from Azkaban. One of the Death Eaters pursuing Harry and Co. in the Department of Mysteries.

Elphias Doge: a silver-haired, wheezy-voiced member of the Order now and when it was originally formed.

Mary Dorkins: Muggle reporter

Aberforth Dumbledore: dubious brother of Albus Dumbledore who was prosecuted for inappropriate charms on a goat. Member of the Original Order of the Pheonix. Dunno what happened to him since. A strange bloke, according to Moody.

Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore: Order of Merlin, First Class, Grand Sorcerer, Chief Warlock of Wizengamot (Wizard High Court), Supreme Mugwump, International Confederation of Wizards, and Headmaster of Hogwarts. He is tall and thin with long silver hair and beard. He has buckled shoes and purple robes, a long crooked nose, sparkling blue eyes beneath half-moon glasses, and a scar above his left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground. He can Apparate. I wonder if he is an Animagus? He discovered the twelve uses of dragon's blood, practiced alchemy with Nicholas Flamel and likes chamber music and ten-pin bowling. He defeated Grindelwald in 1945 and doesn't need an Invisibility Cloak to become invisible. Founder of the Order of the Pheonix.

Dudley Dursley: Harry's cousin, a fat, blonde, pink-faced boy with tiny blue eyes who is now wider than he is tall, despite his diet. His favorite pastimes are breaking his own toys and bullying Harry, who thinks Dudley looks like a pig in a wig.

Marge Dursley: a large, beefy, purple faced, mustached woman with a large garden. She breeds bulldogs and is very mean to Harry. She is Vernon Dursley's sister.

Petunia Dursley: Harry's aunt, a thin blonde nosy woman with beady eyes and twice the usual amount of neck. She loves Dudley and hates Harry. Her best friend is named Yvonne.

Vernon Dursley: Harry's uncle, a big, beefy, purple-faced man with a large mustache and no neck. He works at Grunnings, a drill company, and positively detests Harry.


Marietta Edgecombe: Cho Chang's giggly, friend with reddish-blond, curly hair. She was in Dumbledore's Army, about which she snitched to Umbridge, much to her disfigurement. Her mother, Madam Edgecombe from the Department of Magical Transportation, Floo Network Office, was helping police the Hogwarts fires.

Elfric the Eager: he had an uprising. A little too eager...

Elladora— Sirius Black's aunt, who started family tradition of beheading house-elves when they got too old to carry tea trays

Emeric the Evil: A historical character, and thus one noone cares about. Ugh, history...

Errol: the Weasley family owl.

Everard: a sallow-faced wizard with short, black, bangs and an ex-Headmaster of Hogwarts. He also has a portrait in the Ministry of Magic.


Fat Friar: the jolly Hufflepuff ghost.

Fat Lady: The lady in the portrait that guards the Gryffindor tower.

Fawcett: a Ravenclaw girl who tried to age herself to get into the Triwizard Tournament. She was caught with Stebbins in the rosebushes the night of the Yule Ball.

Benjy Fenwick: Member of the Original Order of whom the only ever found bits.

Arabella Doreen Figg: Neighbor to the Dursleys, a Squib member of the Order of the Phoenix who has been charged with guarding Harry. She has grizzled gray hair, tartan carpet slippers, a fondness for cats (including Tibbs, Snowy, Paws, and Mr. Tufty), and a house that smells of cabbage.

Argus Filch: the caretaker at Hogwarts. A grumpy man who hates most of the children because of the messes they make. He prowls the hallways at night with his cat, Mrs. Norris looking for mischievous children and a way to get Peeves into trouble. He is a Squib, meaning a non-magic person from a magic family. He lives at Hogwarts over the summer.

Justin Finch-Fletchley: a Hufflepuff in Harry's year who is in Herbology with Harry. He was petrified in Harry's second year, after having suspected Harry of being the Phantom student... I mean, Heir of Slytherin... Member of Dumbledore's Army.

Seamus Finnigan: a Gryffindor in Harry's year with sandy hair. He supports Ireland in the Quidditch World Cup, and went with Lavendar Brown to the Yule Ball. His mother is a witch, but his father is a muggle. He is afraid of banshees. Late-joining member of Dumbledore's Army.

Firenze: a blonde centaur with white-blond hair, a palimino body, and astonishingly blue eyes. Taught Divination in classroom 11 when Trelawney was fired by Umbridge, for which he was banished by his herd.

Perenelle Flamel: wife of Nicholas Flamel who lived to be 658.

Angus Fleet: A muggle who spotted the flying Ford Anglia.

Mundungus Fletcher: a rather dodgy character, but a member of the Order nonetheless. He has short bandy legs and long, straggly ginger hair (sounds suspiciously like Crookshanks to me, but I think that's pure coincidence, because you see them together in chapter five of book five). He's useful to the Order because he knows all the crooks, and thus hears things the others don't. He's very loyal to Dumbledore, who helped him out of a tight spot once. At the Quidditch World Cup, he filed for the destruction of a twelve-bedroomed tent with a Jacuzzi, but he was really sleeping under a cloak propped up by sticks.

Flint: captain and Chaser(?) of the Slytherin Quidditch team.

Professor Flitwick: the tiny and excitable Charms teacher.

Fluffy: Hagrid's three-headed dog, who guards the trapdoor to the Sorcerer's Stone and can be lulled to sleep with music.

Fortescue: a corpulent, red-nosed wizard and previous Hogwarts Headmaster. A younger Florean?

Fridwulfa: Hagrid's Giantess mother.

Vicky Frobisher: a Gryffindor who tried out for Keeper once Wood left Hogwarts. She flew better than Ron, but was involved in too many clubs and societies, and admitted that if training clashed with Charms Club she'd put Charms first.

Cornelius Oswald Fudge: slightly incompetent Minister of Magic, who has become blinded by the love of his office. He sends frequent owls to Dumbledore asking for advice, but refuses to heed his suggestions to get the dementors away from Azkaban and to send an envoy to the giants. He is usually seen in a pinstripe suit with a green bowler hat. Somehow, he managed to obtain an Order of Merlin First Class.


Anthony Goldstein: a fifth-year Ravenclaw boy in Dumbledore's Army. Made prefect during his fifth year.

Golgomath: new Gurg, one of the biggest of the Giants, with black hair and teeth and a necklace of bones. Already in conversation with Death Eaters and not so sympathetic to Dumbledore's messengers.

Hermione Granger: a Gryffindor girl who is Harry's best friend. She is very smart, has bushy brown hair, large front teeth (well, not anymore) and a bossy voice. She went to the Yule Ball with Viktor Krum. Her parents are both dentists and muggles, making her a "Mudblood," to those without kindness or breeding. Her birthday is September 19. Made prefect during her fifth year. Member of Dumbledore's Army.

Gray Lady : the Ravenclaw ghost.

Grawp: Hagrid's half brother. Only sixteen feet tall, he was being bullied by the other giants, so Hagrid brought him back to Hogwarts. Enjoys ripping up pine trees, and knows Hermione as "Hermy."

Daphne Greengrass: a fifth year called for her Charms practical with Hermione.

Gregory the Smarmy: his corridor is where Fred and George created the indoor swamp.

Godric Gryffindor: one of the four Founders of Hogwarts, and it seems the leader of the bunch. He was known for his bravery.

Davey Gudgeon: A boy who was at Hogwarts the same time as Remus Lupin, who nearly lost an eye at the hand (well, branch) of the Whomping Willow, which was planted to guard the passageway to the Shrieking Shack where Lupin went when he became a werewolf. Could he be related to:

Gladys Gudgeon: a fan of Gilderoy Lockhart. Still writes Lockhart weekly, even after his accident. Can anyone find where she's mentioned? I've lost it.


Rubeus Hagrid: A half giant two times as tall as a normal man and five times as wide. He has long tangles of bushy black hair and beard. He is Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts, where he was expelled for supposedly being the one who opened the chamber of secrets. His wand was sixteen inches long, rather bendy, and made of oak. It was snapped when he was expelled, but he hid the pieces inside a pink umbrella. He has a propensity for large monsters like giant spiders, dragons, hippogriffs, three-headed dogs, and Blast-Ended Skrewts. Envoy to the Giants for Dumbledore and Member of the Order now and when it was originally formed.

Hermes: The Weasley family owl.

Terence Higgs: Seeker for the Slytherin Quidditch team until Malfoy bribed the team.

Madame Hooch: Quidditch referee at Hogwarts, who teaches flying. She has short, gray hair and yellow hawk-like eyes.

Geoffrey Hooper: a Gryffindor who tried for Keeper, and flew better than Ron, but who Angelina thought too much of a whiner.

Mafalda Hopkirk: works at the Improper Use of Magic office at the ministry.

Olive Hornby: a student at Hogwarts fifty years ago who used to tease Moaning Myrtle when she was alive. After Myrtle died, she haunted Olive for quite some time.

Helga Hufflepuff: one of the four Founders of Hogwarts. She was sweet and hard-working.


Icicle: Not a real character (yet) but one who I refer to once or twice on the site. She was rumored to be an evil female coming up in book four, but she didn't appear. Sad!

Inigo Imago: Author of The Dream Oracle.

Ivanova: Chaser for the Bulgarian Quidditch team.


Arsenius Jigger: Author of Magical Drafts and Potions.

Angelina Johnson: a tall black girl in Gryffindor who turned seventeen in time to put her name into the Goblet of Fire.

Lee Jordan: a Gryffindor boy two years above Harry with dreadlocks. He is best friends with Fred and George Weasley. Member of Dumbledore's Army.

Bertha Jorkins: worked in Department of Magical Games and Sports. She disappeared in a trip to visit her relatives in Albania when she came upon Peter Pettigrew in an inn and he took her to Voldemort, who took the information he needed from her and then killed her. She came upon Winky talking to young Barty Crouch and discovered that he was still alive and being held, invisible, by his father. Barty Crouch senior put a strong Memory Charm on her that actually damaged her memory permanently. She was a nosy little girl when she went to Hogwarts: "He put a hex on me, Professor Dumbledore, and I was only teasing him, sir, I only said I'd seen him kissing Florence behind the greenhouses yesterday." "Silly Bertha. But why did you have to follow him in the first place?"

Jugson: One of the Death Eaters pursuing Harry and Co. in the Department of Mysteries.


Igor Karakoff: the former Death Eater and Headmaster of Durmstrang, where he teaches the Dark Arts. He has sleek, short, silver hair, a curled goatee, deep blue eyes, and a fruity, unctuous voice. He was freed from Azkaban for naming the names of many Death Eaters, and thus did not return to Voldemort when he called.

Karkus: a 22 or 23-foot giant and the original Gurg when Hagrid and Madame Maxime went to parley with them. Open to their message, but later killed by Golgomath.

Professor Kettleburn: old Care of Magical Creatures teacher before Hagrid.

Andrew Kirke: replacement Gryffindor Beater for Fred and George, along with Jack Sloper. Not brilliant.

Kreacher: house-elf to the Blacks, whose loyalties lie more with Sirius' mother than the Order, and who insults them whenever possible, tries to hoard all the Black family heirlooms to prevent their disposal, and eventually goes to Voldemort to report. His life's ambition is to have his head cut off and stuck up on a plaque just like his mother.

Viktor Krum: Seeker for the Bulgarian Quidditch team and student at Durmstrang, where he is Igor Karakoff's pet pupil, and where he may have been taught some of the Dark Arts. He has frequent injuries from Quidditch, thick eyebrows, and a curved nose. He is duck-footed and round-shouldered. He likes Hermione, who he stalked in the library for quite a while before getting up the nerve to ask her to the Yule Ball. He has also invited her to visit him over the summer. He is an exceptional flier. His wand, a Gregorovitch creation, is thick and rigid, ten and a quarter inches, and made from hornbeam and dragon heartstring.

Member of Dumbledore's Army.

Luna Lovegood: A Ravenclaw girl in Ginny's year at Hogwarts. She has straggly, waist-length, dirty-blond hair, very pale eyebrows, and surprised-looking eyes. She has an aura of dottiness, and a habit of saying the things most people don't, not being afraid to speak her mind directly. According to Ginny, she'll only believe in things if there's no proof of them whatsoever. Seems to have a peculiar fondness for Ron. In my opinion, at least. Her father is the editor of the magazine The Quibbler, a sort of tabloid-type magazine which prints the alien-spaceship-sighting-type myths of the wizarding world. Her mother died in front of her when she was nine of an experimental spell she was doing that went badly. She does not seem to blink as much as normal humans. Member of Dumbledore's Army.

Remus Lupin: a werewolf. Dumbledore allowed him to come to Hogwarts anyway, where he was taken through a tunnel under the Whomping Willow into the Shrieking Shack every month at full moon.

He hid until discovered by Sirius Black, who saw a picture of the rat on Ron's shoulder in the Daily Prophet, but escaped and went back into hiding, where he found Voldemort and helped him return to power.
