Professor Abraham Ronen[5] (fl. 19th century) was a wizard who worked at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as Head of Slytherin House[4] and as the school's Charms Master in the late 19th century.[3] In the 1890–1891 school year, his class was joined by a student who started school as a fifth-year,[3] and he also aided them in their final battle against the rebelling goblin Ranrok.[8]


Early life[]

Before or in the 19th century, Abraham Ronen was born into a family of wizarding descent. He had a rather austere father that tutored him at home. As a result of this, he made a game of his studies to enjoy learning. He was particularly fond of Gobstones.[6] His experience with his father was not as cheerful as he hoped, something that he wished for his students to avoid when he later became a professor himself.[9] He met his wife during a lively Gobstones tournament.[citation needed]

Later life[]

Career at Hogwarts[]

By 1883,[9] he became the school's Charms Master and was granted Classroom 2E on the third-floor and an office in which to work. To the delight of most of his students, his unorthodox teaching style often incorporated gameplay, including the creation of a Summoner's Court area for student to practise the Summoning Charm.[3] At some point before 1890, he also became the Head of Slytherin House.[4] He still held the positions during the 1890–1891 school year, which saw the arrival of a new student who began their attendance at the school as a fifth-year, something that was highly irregular.[10]

Ronen's Charms class HL

At the start of the first fifth-year class, he asked his students about the difference between the incantations of the Colour Change and Growth Charms, and seeing that they could not answer the question without looking it up, he wondered how much the students had forgotten over the summer and looked around to see if anyone was capable of performing the basic Summoning Charm. He then started a review by letting students use the charm to summon the textbook out of each other's hands.[3]

Afterwards, he brought the students outdoors and conjured a board of Summoner's Court and a few balls. He let the new fifth-year student try it out before making them compete against Natsai Onai. When the lesson was over, he and the students returned to the classroom, where Ronen also talked briefly with the new student about his studies and upcoming extra assignments, which were requested by the Deputy Headmistress Matilda Weasley and designed to help them catch up to the educational level of their other classmates.[3]

Later that day, Ronen met with the student and gave them their first assignment, which included using the Summoning Charm on flying Wizard's Field Guide pages in different places. He then taught them the Mending Charm and encouraged them to try it out on a broken statue nearby.[11] At some point later, he faced the student himself in another round of Summoner's Court.[12]

The Final Repository - Abraham Ronen arrives HL

At the end of the school year, when Ranrok invaded the Keepers' Caverns with the aim of obtaining the final repository and supplanting wizardkind with goblinkind, Professor Ronen defended Hogwarts Castle against his army of Loyalists and trolls, ensuring the safety of not only the school, but also the wizarding world as a whole. Ronen was present at the memorial ceremony for Eleazar Fig which took place after Ranrok's final defeat at the hands of the late-coming student he had helped to teach that year.[8]

Personality and traits[]

"I think you will enjoy Professor Ronen. He's a clever and entertaining wizard - and a talented teacher."
— Professor Weasley[src]

He had a jovial and lighthearted personality with a perpetual twinkle in his eye. He considered his students' friendships and extracurricular activities to be just as important as the subject of Charms itself.[3] However, he had the tendency to drone on a bit and the students had to remind him to end the lesson.[13]

Magical abilities and skills[]

  • Charms: As an old Professor of Charms at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he would have been accomplished with charms.[3]
  • Apparition: As with most adult wizards, Ronen was capable of Apparating from one place to another. He did so by Apparating to where the new student and Fig was to help them fight against the goblin army.
  • Duelling: He was also skilled in casting offensive spells, as he defeated a few goblin warriors that invaded Hogwarts.


"Abraham" is a male given name: from a Hebrew word meaning "father of many".[14]
