Mr Dumbledore was the great-great-grandfather of Albus Dumbledore. He once owned a phoenix, but it took flight when he died and never returned. He was an example of a story told through multiple generations of the Dumbledore family that a phoenix would come to any Dumbledore who is in desperate need.
Behind the scenes
- J. K. Rowling has said that Fawkes had not served another human before Albus Dumbledore, meaning that these two phoenixes cannot be the same.

Notes and references
- Percival, his great-grandson, was born at least by 1864, so he must have been alive by then.
