Though he has a Hügel Der Blutigen Stiefel Stream spirit, a standard sized letter is too large for him to handle physically. Below is a list of magical creatures Haarfarbentest in the Harry Potter universe.
Ghosts are very sensitive about their condition: when the Ministry initially classified them as sentient creatures with full legal rights,  they claimed that the term was insensitive and received a separate "Spirit Division" [HPF] , apparently to control the activities and haunting locations of troublesome ghosts as when Myrtle was forced to haunt the place of her death Hogwarts after she had disrupted the wedding of the brother of Olive Hornby, a girl who had teased her at school.
Peeves, the Hogwarts poltergeist , is not considered a ghost, but an "indestructible spirit of chaos" according to Rowling. Giants in the Harry Potter universe are capable of interbreeding with humans — Rubeus Hagrid is half-giant , as is his love interest Olympe Maxime — but wizards as a population [HP4] have engaged in an active campaign to hunt giants out of civilisation.
Giants range in height from twenty to twenty-five feet 6 to 7. Voldemort has employed giants in his attacks, after convincing them that he can offer them a better life; [HP4] whereas Hagrid reveals in Order of the Phoenix that he and Madame Maxime went to try and persuade the Giants to take part in the war against Voldemort, but were thwarted when the Gurg was killed and his successor sided with their enemies.
Presumably, as a result, giants took part in the Battle of Hogwarts at the end of the series, mostly fighting for Voldemort.
The portrayal of giants as a dying breed is consistent with much of European folklore, where they are frequently described as primaeval creatures who built ruins and created strange landforms long before humans arrived.
Goblins are magical creatures chiefly involved with metalwork and the running of Gringotts bank. They are represented by the Goblin Liaison Office in the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures.
Goblins are anthropoid, described as having long, thin fingers and feet, black eyes, and domed heads much larger than human heads in proportion to the body.
Relations between goblins and wizards have been strained for centuries by misunderstandings on both sides, sometimes evoking violence. Along with house-elves, goblins seem to occupy positions as second-class citizens in the Wizarding world.
The goblins remain a neutral force during the Second Wizarding War, siding with neither Voldemort nor the opposition to him. House-elves are small elves used by wizards as slaves.
They are 2—3 feet tall, with spindly limbs and oversized heads and eyes. They have pointed, bat-like ears and high, squeaky voices.
Their names are usually pet-like diminutives, and they do not appear to have surnames. They habitually refer to themselves in the third person.
House-elves are generally obedient, pliant , and obsequious ; and when enslaved, wear discarded items such as pillowcases and tea-towels draped like a toga.
House-elves' masters can free them by giving them an item of clothing, much like the Hob of English Folklore. House-elves can become intoxicated by drinking Butterbeer.
House-elves possess magic distinct from that used by wizards and witches, which they generally use in the service of their masters. This magic can be used without the permission of their masters, or even against their orders, though such disobedience obliges them to punish themselves in various painful ways.
Among other things, this magic allows house-elves to Apparate instantly from place to place, even at Hogwarts and other places where human Apparation is prevented; and even to thus transport humans.
Along with the ability to Apparate anywhere at any time, Dobby , Winky , Hokey , and Kreacher all demonstrate that they can overpower wizards when necessary: In Chamber of Secrets , Dobby forcefully repels Lucius Malfoy while protecting Harry; whereas in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire , when Barty Crouch Jr.
Moreover, although House-elves are not allowed to carry wands, they do not appear to need them, being capable of magical feats without them.
In Goblet of Fire , it is said that a House-elf who has been freed is expected to find a new family to serve. There is an Office of House-Elf Relocation at the Ministry of Magic to facilitate this.
House-elves are unendingly loyal to their masters; so much so that Dobby, who served the Malfoy family , attempts to punish himself each time he utters a negative remark about them even after his freedom until the final book, in which he defies Bellatrix Lestrange.
According to Kreacher, "a House-elf's highest law is his master's bidding"; however, while House-elves must obey their masters without question, they have been known to find loopholes in orders that allow for unintended interpretations to protect themselves or their friends.
Because of their docile, obedient natures, some families abuse their house-elves; Dark wizard families in particular seem to make a habit thereof, as when the Malfoys forced Dobby to torture himself, or when the Black family customarily decapitated their house-elves as they became enfeebled by age.
Nonetheless, most house-elves are horrified by freedom even from the most cruel masters. Dobby, the first introduced, is the sole exception; but this extends chiefly to voluntary service, paid labour, and choice of his own employment and costume.
During her time at Hogwarts, Hermione establishes S. After Hermione begins leaving elf-sized clothes around the Gryffindor common room, intending for Hogwarts' House-elves to inadvertently free themselves while cleaning, the House-elves find the idea so insulting that Dobby is the only resident elf willing to clean in Gryffindor Tower.
In Deathly Hallows , Dumbledore tells Harry: "Of House-elves Voldemort knows and understands nothing. That they have a power beyond his own, a power beyond the reach of any magic, is a truth he had never grasped".
Kreacher also leads the House-elves of Hogwarts into battle against Voldemort's forces. Obscurials are magical children who attempt to repress their magical abilities.
If kept unchecked, this repression corrupts the user's magic, creating a dark parasite force known as an obscurus.
The host obscurial keeps the form of the child, appearing normal, if emotionally distressed due to their forced hiding of their magical nature.
When their power is unleashed, the child and obscurus share a form of a large shadowy ethereal cloud, usually causing destruction due to the child themselves having little to no control over the obscurus.
The host and parasite may retake the form of the child later, again with almost no input from the obscurial. Due to its consuming nature, obscurials rarely live past childhood, and obscurials who do make it to adolescence are considered outstandingly powerful magic users, though they still will have no control.
Obscurials first came into notice when wizard-kind was persecuted by non-magical users. In an attempt to hide their true nature and blend in with society, their pain would cause their magic to manifest into an obscurus.
As such, obscurials are feared even among witches and wizards, who see them as not only destructive, but a threat to the International Statute of Secrecy.
Even today, the creation of obscurials persists through the persecution of magical peoples all across the world.
When an Obscurial comes close to their emotional breaking point their eyes turn a milky white and the Obscurus can be observed writhing under its host's skin.
When unleashed an obscurus will normally target the source of its host's misery and distress; violently mauling the victim and leaving distinct scratch like burns over the victim's face.
Despite their violent nature an obscurus will spare those who have shown kindness and affection to their obscurial host.
Obscurus and obscurials play a crucial role in the film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them , Fantastic Beasts author Newt Scamander expressing guilt for not being able to save an obscurial girl he met in Sudan.
In the film's storyline, an Obscurus manifested in New York in the body of Aurelius Dumbledore, previously known as Credence Barebone who was forced to conceal his magic from his abusive adoptive mother who has formed an organization to persecute witches.
Credence was sought by Gellert Grindelwald and drives him to wreak havoc across the city before he was seemingly killed by aurors under orders from the President of the Magical Congress of the United States of America, Seraphina Picquery.
Credence ultimately survived this as a fragment of his obscurus escapes notice and reconstitutes him, retaining the entity throughout the events of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald while learning his true identity and later showing some control over it.
Thestrals are an elusive, carnivorous species of winged horse, visible only to those who have witnessed and embraced a death,  and described as having "blank, white, shining eyes," a " dragonish face," "long, black manes," "great leathery wings," and the "skeletal body of a great, black, winged horse"; also described by Hagrid as "dead clever an' useful", and also by Harry as "reptilian".
They have acquired an undeserved reputation as omens of evil. Thestrals have fangs and possess a well-developed sense of smell, which will lead them to carrion and fresh blood.
According to Hagrid, they will not attack a human-sized target without provocation. They are capable of very fast flight for several hours at a time, though they usually spend their time on the ground; and they have an excellent sense of direction.
The breed is domesticable , given a willing trainer Hagrid suspects that he has the only domesticated herd in Britain , after which they may pull loads, and make a serviceable if uncomfortable mode of transportation Harry rides to the Ministry of Magic by thestral in the fifth book with his friends, although half of the group are unable to actually see their means of transport.
Hogwarts has a herd in the nearby Forbidden Forest and primarily uses them to pull the carriages that transport students to and from the Hogsmeade train station.
They are introduced to Care of Magical Creatures students in the fifth year by Hagrid in the same year that Harry becomes able to see them after witnessing the death of Cedric Diggory , some months after it occurred.
Harry only sees these beasts after he sees Cedric die, yet it is stated in both the books and the films that he witnessed his mother die in front of him at the age of one; therefore he logically should have been able to see them throughout the entire series, or should have started seeing them at the start of the summer holidays of that year.
When asked about this discrepancy, Rowling responded that when Harry saw his mother die, he was young and did not fully understand the meaning of death and what had happened.
When he saw Cedric die, he fully understood what had happened, and had time to think about it before he returned to Hogwarts and saw the Thestrals for the first time.
Thestrals are featured attacking Death Eaters in the Battle of Hogwarts at the end of Deathly Hallows. Rowling has since revealed that the Elder Wand has a core of Thestral hair,  the only wand with such a core.
Thestral , a shield bug genus, is named after Rowling's Thestrals. Larson also noted Thestrals as an inspiration for a bat-winged variant of Pegasus ponies featured rarely in the series.
The werewolf is a humanoid wolf-like creature that can exist only for a brief period around the full moon.
At any other time, a werewolf is a normal human. However, the term werewolf is used for both the wolf-like creature and the normal human.
A werewolf can be distinguished from a true wolf physically by several small distinguishing characteristics, including the eyes, claws, fangs, ears, snout , and tufted tail.
A person becomes a werewolf when bitten by another werewolf in wolf-form. Once this happens, the person must learn to manage the condition.
The Wolfsbane Potion controls some of the effects of the condition; by allowing the sufferer to maintain their human mind in wolf form, it prevents them from harming others.
The potion tastes horrible and very few are skilled enough to brew it, and according to Lupin, the addition of sugar to the potion renders it useless and inert.
Nothing discovered in the wizarding world can completely cure a werewolf. Most werewolves live outside normal society and steal food to survive.
They generally support Voldemort, whom they think will give them a better life, since they are shunned by the wizard community and are both feared and hated by the common witch and wizard.
Remus Lupin is the only known exception to this. There are only three known werewolves in the Harry Potter series: Lupin, Fenrir Greyback and an unnamed wizard who was in the same ward as Arthur Weasley in St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries.
While Bill Weasley gets attacked by Greyback during the Battle of the Astronomy Tower in Half-Blood Prince , he is not a werewolf.
Although Bill suffered a number of side-effects from the attack, including a scarred face and a new love of very rare steak, he does not become a werewolf as Greyback was in human form at the time of the bite.
The condition of Lycanthropy can be hereditary, but as seen in the case of Teddy Lupin , it is not necessarily so. From the third book to the sixth, Crookshanks is Hermione Granger 's pet cat.
Crookshanks was purchased by Hermione in a shop called Magical Menagerie in the third Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Crookshanks resembles a Persian Cat , and Rowling has described him as half-Kneazle,  an intelligent cat-like creature sensitive to dishonesty, explaining his identification of the rat 'Scabbers' as Peter Pettigrew , and of Sirius Black in his dog form.
Crookshanks is seen in Prisoner of Azkaban talking to Padfoot in the school grounds. Crookshanks was portrayed by a cat called Crackerjack.
Dobby is the Malfoy family 's house-elf. He first appears in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets to discourage Harry from returning to Hogwarts.
During a Quidditch match, Dobby enchants a Bludger to chase Harry, hoping to cause him enough injury to be sent home; but the Bludger only manages to break Harry's arm.
Dobby discloses that when an enslaved house-elf is presented with an article of clothing by his or her master, that house-elf is subsequently set free; and when Harry after returning from the Chamber of Secrets discovers that Dobby's master is Lucius Malfoy , he tricks Malfoy into setting Dobby free, a feat that secures him the house-elf's undying loyalty.
He was now willing to save Harry Potter no matter if it would mean risking his life, because after all, "Harry Potter set Dobby free! Dobby returns in Goblet of Fire.
Now a free elf, he obtains a paid post at Hogwarts. Dobby also quickly becomes the only house-elf who will clean the Gryffindor common room, when Hermione leaves knitted clothing half-hidden around the room in an attempt to free the elves, which they find insulting.
He also helps Harry get through the second task of the Triwizard Tournament by giving him Gillyweed. Dobby later appears in Order of the Phoenix , showing Harry the hidden Room of Requirement , which Harry uses for the secret meetings of Dumbledore's Army.
When Professor Umbridge finds the meetings later, Dobby enters to warn the group. In Half-Blood Prince Harry entrusts Dobby to watch his compatriot Kreacher when he orders him to work in the Hogwarts kitchens with the other house-elves; and later assigns both to follow Draco Malfoy.
Dobby makes his last appearance in Deathly Hallows when Aberforth Dumbledore sends him to rescue the protagonists from Malfoy Manor after Harry asks for Aberforth's help while viewing his eye in Sirius' mirror, but in the process Dobby is killed by Bellatrix Lestrange.
He is buried at Shell Cottage, beneath a headstone bearing the epitaph "Here Lies Dobby, A Free Elf". Dobby's name is derived from a creature in English folklore.
This creature performs household chores and is kind to children,  as is the character in the series. Dobby is voiced by Toby Jones in the film adaptations of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1.
Fawkes is Albus Dumbledore 's pet phoenix , a mythological bird which cyclically bursts into flame upon its death and is then reborn from the ashes.
Phoenix tail feathers are suitable for inclusion in some wands both Harry and Voldemort's wands contain a feather from Fawkes' tail, the only two he ever gave and their tears have healing powers.
Fawkes can also teleport himself and others in a burst of flame. In Chamber of Secrets , Harry's display of loyalty to Dumbledore results in his summoning Fawkes to his aid against Salazar Slytherin 's basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets; whereupon Fawkes punctures the basilisk's eyes, eliminating her ability to kill with her gaze.
Fawkes later uses his tears to negate the basilisk's venom; and when the basilisk is killed, conveys Harry Potter, Ron and Ginny Weasley, and Gilderoy Lockhart to their guardians.
In Goblet of Fire , during the duel between Harry and Voldemort, the "reverse spell effect" ' Priori Incantatem ' occurs, as both of their wands are made of Fawkes' feathers.
During the confrontation between Voldemort and Dumbledore in the Ministry of Magic at the climax of Order of the Phoenix book only , Fawkes saves Dumbledore's life by swallowing a Killing Curse from Voldemort; then bursts into flame and is reborn as a chick from the ashes.
After Dumbledore's death in Half-Blood Prince , Fawkes is heard singing a lament , and thereafter is not seen again. In an interview, Rowling stated this was to symbolise the loss of Dumbledore.
When asked why Fawkes did not return to Harry due to his loyalty to Dumbledore, Rowling stated that Fawkes was non-transferable between owners.
According to Rowling, Fawkes is named after 17th century conspirator Guy Fawkes. Firenze is a centaur and, after Order of the Phoenix , a Divination teacher at Hogwarts.
He first appears towards the end of Philosopher's Stone , in which he rescues Harry from Voldemort in the Forbidden Forest. Having carried Harry to safety on his back, Firenze quarrels with other centaurs who object to the symbolic suggestion that centaurs are subservient to humans.
The character does not make another appearance until Order of the Phoenix , in which he is appointed by Dumbledore to teach Divination at Hogwarts in place of Sybill Trelawney , who has been sacked by Dolores Umbridge.
For this, he is ostracised by his fellows. In Half-Blood Prince , he shares teaching duties with a reinstated Trelawney. In Deathly Hallows , he is seen near the end of the book alongside the other members of the Hogwarts staff , against Voldemort and his Death Eaters; it is mentioned that he was wounded on his flanks by the Death Eaters but ultimately survived the Battle.
Although not mentioned in the series, Rowling revealed that after the Battle, Firenze's herd was forced to acknowledge that his pro-human leanings were not shameful, and allowed him to rejoin them.
The character is based on Steve Eddy, Rowling's former English teacher, who attempted to discourage her from writing fantasy tales.
Ray Fearon voiced Firenze in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Frank is a thunderbird that was kidnapped and trafficked to Egypt in the s.
In the film Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them , Frank is the reason Newt went to America. After rescuing Frank from the traffickers, Newt stored Frank with his other magical creatures in his suitcase.
Newt brings Frank to America in hopes of returning him to his native land of Arizona. In the climax of the film, the existence of magic is revealed to the people of New York City, following a battle between American wizarding government MACUSA and an obscurial.
Knowing the secrecy of wizard-kind has been compromised, Newt releases Frank from his suitcase and gives him a potion that has memory wiping properties.
Because of the thunderbird's ability to generate storms, Newt says goodbye to Frank as Frank flies into the sky, creating a rainfall using the liquid from the potion, erasing the memories of all non-magical people of the event.
Rowling revealed in a tweet following the film's release that Frank did indeed make it back to Arizona following the events of the film.
Griphook is a goblin and an employee at Gringotts until the Second Wizarding War. In Philosopher's Stone , after Hagrid presents Harry's key and Dumbledore's letter to an unnamed goblin in the Gringotts lobby, Griphook is called to escort Harry and Hagrid through the underground rail-system to Harry's vault, and afterwards to Vault to retrieve the Philosopher's Stone.
He is not heard of again until Deathly Hallows , when the Snatchers holding him captive also capture Harry, Ron, and Hermione.
When Hermione lies under torture to Bellatrix Lestrange that the sword of Gryffindor is a fake, Bellatrix asks Griphook for confirmation, which she receives.
He is saved, along with Harry, Ron, and Hermione, by Dobby and successfully escapes to Shell Cottage. Because Harry needs to take a Horcrux from Bellatrix's vault, Griphook reluctantly agrees to help them break into Gringotts, in exchange for the sword of Gryffindor; but when escaping, Griphook betrays them to the other goblins and escapes with the sword.
His fate is left unknown in the book, but in the film he is shown dead during the aftermath at Gringotts, and Gryffindor's sword vanishes before Voldemort can see it.
In spite of Griphook's insistence that the sword belongs to the goblins, the sword reappears when Neville Longbottom pulls it from the Sorting Hat and beheads Nagini.
Verne Troyer appeared as Griphook in the film adaptation of Philosopher's Stone with Warwick Davis providing his voice and the latter fully portrayed him in the Deathly Hallows films.
Hedwig is Harry's snowy owl, given to him in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as an eleventh birthday present by Rubeus Hagrid , who purchases the owl in Diagon Alley at the Eeylops Owl Emporium.
Harry gives her this name after reading it in a book on the history of magic. Hedwig is used for delivering messages throughout the series, and also serves as a companion to Harry, especially when he is unable to interact with other wizards.
It is implied throughout the books that Hedwig can fully understand Harry's speech. In the fifth book, Order of the Phoenix ,  Hedwig is intercepted by Dolores Umbridge and is hurt, but is later healed by Professor Grubbly-Plank.
In the seventh book, The Deathly Hallows , Hedwig is killed by a curse from a Death Eater ; in the film version, she is killed defending Harry from the Death Eater.
According to Rowling, Hedwig's death represents the loss of Harry's innocence. Although the character of Hedwig is female, she is played on film by male owls female snowy owls have dark patches of plumage, while only the males are completely white.
The John Williams composition which serves as title music for the entire film series is named "Hedwig's Theme". Hokey is a house-elf who works for Hepzibah Smith , an old woman deceived by Tom Riddle into showing him Slytherin's locket and Hufflepuff's cup, which he uses as two of his Horcruxes.
Hokey's memory allows Harry and Dumbledore a glimpse of the visit Voldemort makes two days before Hepzibah Smith is poisoned and both treasures disappear; whereafter Riddle, who magically tampers with Hokey's memories, frames Hokey for Hepzibah's murder.
She does not deny the accusation and is convicted for accidental murder. Kreacher is a house-elf who serves the House of Black for generations and whose name is a play on the word creature.
Kreacher first appears in Order of the Phoenix as an unwilling servant to Sirius Black. Kreacher disdains Sirius, mainly due to his devotion to his former masters Regulus Black in particular , whose pure-blood values Sirius has rejected.
Sirius also treats him harshly because the elf is a living reminder of a home to which he earlier had no intention of returning. Knowing too much of the Order of the Phoenix 's activity, Kreacher is not allowed to leave Grimmauld Place.
Kreacher has lived alone in the house for years with only the screaming portrait of Mrs. Black for company. Despite obeying Sirius, he is insolent and rude, insulting in undertones all present who he refers to as "Blood traitors, Mudbloods and scum".
Hermione comments on this: "I don't think he realises we can hear him. Kreacher desires to leave Sirius and serve his next of kin, Bellatrix Lestrange and the Malfoys.
He betrays Sirius and persuades Harry to go to the Department of Mysteries , where a trap has been laid. Sirius is killed by Bellatrix in the ensuing combat, while trying to save Harry.
Following Sirius' death, Harry inherits all of Sirius' possessions, including a highly unwilling Kreacher. Harry immediately orders him to work at Hogwarts, where he comes to blows with Dobby about his lack of loyalty to Harry.
In Deathly Hallows , Harry and his friends coax from the house-elf the current whereabouts of Salazar Slytherin's Locket , a Black heirloom and one of Lord Voldemort 's Horcruxes ; whereafter Harry sends Kreacher to retrieve the locket from Mundungus Fletcher and gives him its substitute as a token of remembrance referring to Regulus Black, who alone treated Kreacher with respect.
Thereafter Kreacher appears cleaner and happier, restores the house to pristine condition, and begins to treat Harry and his friends with courtesy and respect.
When Grimmauld Place is infiltrated by Death Eaters, Harry decides against calling the elf back to them, fearing possible betrayal.
In the Battle of Hogwarts, Kreacher rallies the Hogwarts house-elves against the Death Eaters , calling Harry his "master and defender of house elves".
It is implied that he survived the battle, as Harry wonders 'whether Kreacher will bring him a sandwich' after his battle with Voldemort.
Kreacher appears in the film version of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix , voiced by Timothy Bateson. Or you can, but if you get to make a seventh film, you'll be tied in knots.
Nagini , is Voldemort's snake and living Horcrux who is introduced in Goblet of Fire. The Fantastic Beast film prequel series reveals Nagini, portrayed by Claudia Kim , was originally a type of person known as a Maledictus whose blood curse permanently transformed her into her current state.
Voldemort is able to communicate with Nagini due to his ability to speak Parseltongue , the language of snakes.
During the fourth year Harry spends at Hogwarts , Voldemort's temporary body is sustained by Nagini's venom , harvested by Peter Pettigrew.
This is the first indication of Nagini and Voldemort's deeper connection, having the ability to share thoughts and connect with Harry.
In Deathly Hallows , Nagini consumes Charity Burbage , a Hogwarts Muggle Studies professor, after the Killing Curse is used on her. Voldemort made Nagini his final Horcrux when he was hiding in the forests of Albania by murdering Bertha Jorkins ;  but Dumbledore suspected that Nagini was made by Voldemort killing Frank Bryce.
Due to this connection, Voldemort has complete control over the snake, Dumbledore mentions in Half-Blood Prince. The prequel film Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald features Nagini in France as an attraction in the Circus Arcanus by its ringmaster, Skender, before running off with Credence to help him find his birth mother.
Peeves is a poltergeist who causes trouble in Hogwarts and is therefore often pursued by the sole caretaker at the school , Argus Filch.
He is capable of flight and can choose whether to be tangible; and is able to manipulate objects, a trait not generally possible with ghosts, but common among poltergeists.
Peeves' existence is essentially the embodiment of disorder,  which he is observed to constantly cause. In appearance, he is a small man with a mischievous face and a wide mouth, dressed in vibrantly coloured clothing.
He derives joy from disaster and mischievous acts, usually causing disruptions to daily activity. Peeves only listens to a select few: Dumbledore; the Bloody Baron ; in the second book Nearly Headless Nick ; and in the fifth book, Fred and George Weasley.
Filch, who is usually left with cleaning up the mess and damage that Peeves causes, tries repeatedly to remove him; however, Rowling has stated in an interview that not even Dumbledore would be able to rid Hogwarts of Peeves forever.
In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince , Harry uses magic to attach Peeves' tongue to the roof of his mouth, after which Peeves angrily departs.
During Dolores Umbridge 's attempts to take control of Hogwarts in Order of the Phoenix , Peeves, along with many of the non-Slytherin students, begins a concerted campaign of practical jokes and pranks at the Weasley twins' request, in order to make Umbridge's time at Hogwarts as unpleasant as possible, a task Peeves undertakes with tremendous glee.
When Umbridge attempts to sneak out of Hogwarts, Peeves chases her out, whacking her with Minerva McGonagall 's cane which she lent to him expressly for that purpose and a sock full of chalk.
Many of the other professors also resent her presence and either turn a blind eye to what is done to Umbridge at the hands of Peeves and the students, or occasionally even providing a small measure of assistance.
Peeves is twice depicted at the conclusion of Deathly Hallows : initially attacking Death Eaters with vicious plants and subsequently singing a victory song for Harry.
It is indicated that Peeves was still at Hogwarts at the time of the epilogue, since Harry tells his son Albus Severus not to "mess with Peeves".
Rik Mayall was cast as Peeves for the film adaptation of Philosopher's Stone , but his scenes were cut from the final film and do not even appear in the deleted scenes section of the DVD release.
Winky is the Crouch family's house elf, described as having enormous brown eyes and a large, round, soft nose. She views herself as a dutiful servant and guards the family's many secrets.
When Barty Crouch Jr is rescued from Azkaban by his dying mother, he is supervised and nursed back to health by Winky.
In Goblet of Fire , she persuades Barty Crouch Sr to let his son attend the Quidditch World Cup; she attends it with the younger Crouch, who is hiding under an Invisibility Cloak , and claims the apparently empty seat beside her is being saved for Crouch Sr.
During the festivities, Crouch Jr steals Harry's wand from his pocket and later uses it to conjure the Dark Mark , in spite of Winky's attempts to stop him.
In the resulting chaos, Harry and his friends see Winky running into the forest, struggling as she tries to restrain the invisible Crouch Jr.
Later she is caught by Amos Diggory with Harry's wand, which is established through a priori incantatem to have been the wand used to conjure the Dark Mark; though Crouch Sr.
Following her dismissal, Dobby takes the distraught Winky to work with him at Hogwarts. There the unhappy Winky, retaining her loyalty to Crouch, becomes an alcoholic until the final book, and eventually fights in the Battle of Hogwarts with the other house-elves.
Over the course of the series, Hagrid cares for a large number of animals, many of them dangerous, including Aragog a giant talking spider or 'Acromantula' , Buckbeak Hippogriff , Fang boarhound , Fluffy Three-Headed Dog , Norbert Norwegian Ridgeback Dragon ; later revealed by Charlie Weasley to actually be female and re-named Norberta , and Tenebrus Thestral.
Hagrid's love for animals gets him the teaching job for Care of Magical Creatures at Hogwarts beginning in Prisoner of Azkaban , following the retirement of the course's previous instructor.
