Mr Binns

Mr Binns was the father of Cuthbert Binns, a wizard who became Professor of History of Magic at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He always used to say something to his son, but what he said is unknown because Cuthbert fell asleep while telling Harry Potter about it.

Cuthbert Binns

Cuthbert Binns likely studied at Hogwarts and later became Professor of History of Magic. His lessons were noted as being incredibly boring, even to the point of making violent and bloody goblin riots sound dull. At some point, Cuthbert fell asleep in the staff room and died in his sleep. Despite that, he continued teaching as a ghost, which was unfortunate for his students who had to continue to listen to his droning.
