Bob: "All right, Arthur?"
Arthur Weasley: "What've you got there, Bob?"
Bob: "We're not sure. We thought it was a bog-standard chicken until it started breathing fire. Looks like a serious breach of the Ban on Experimental Breeding to me."
— Bob meeting Arthur Weasley in the morning of 12 August, 1995[src]

Bob was a British wizard who worked for the British Ministry of Magic, under the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures. He was described as big and bearded.[1]


Arthur Weasley and Harry Potter ran into Bob while waiting for a lift in the Ministry lobby on the 12 August 1995, the day of Harry's disciplinary hearing. He was carrying a large cardboard box that contained a fire-breathing chicken that he strongly suspected was a serious violation of the Ban on Experimental Breeding. When the lift arrived, he got on with Arthur and Harry, and exited at the floor of the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, the department in which he worked.[1]
