Cornelius Fudge

Cornelius Fudge, an advisor with little to no political influence

This advisor to the Minister for Magic was an ad hoc position created in the administration of Rufus Scrimgeour to allow the outgoing Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, to remain in the government in some capacity. Other than advising the Minister, Fudge's only known duty was to liaise with the Muggle Prime Minister, a tradition that Scrimgeour did not take himself due to the increasing business from the Second Wizarding War.[1] It is unknown if the position was continued after the Fall of the Ministry of Magic and Scrimgeour's death, as Death Eaters have no use for muggle communications. While many other positions with the Minister for Magic's Staff and among the Heads of Department advise the Minister, this position was created solely for that purpose, and seems to have no other political power whatsoever.

Behind the scenes

  • Pottermore mentions that 18th-century Minister Unctuous Osbert was significantly influenced by by pure-bloods of wealth and status, chief among them Septimus Malfoy, effectively making Malfoy the de facto Minister for Magic, while Osbert was accused of being little more than Malfoy's puppet.[2] Septimus Malfoy, however, is never outright said to have formally worked at the Ministry as an advisor to Osbert.
