Colby Frey was a wizard who started attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 2008[1] and was a member of Slytherin house. He was the younger[citation needed] twin brother of Fischer Frey.[4]


Early life[]

At an early age, his mother would read him rhyming poetry when he was unable to sleep, which he found comforting.[5]

Hogwarts years[]

First year[]

At the age of eleven, he and Fischer began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in Slytherin house. They befriended Cassandra Vole, and she led their group in bullying their fellow students including Daniel Page.[4] After their first Charms lesson, they challenged a fellow student to a duel. Colby duelled them first in the Duelling Club and lost.[6]

One day, the student caught Colby and Fischer with a Bombtastic Bomb Box in the Grand Staircase. They were planning to use it to prank Argus Filch. When they asked what it was, Colby tried to deny that there was a box but Fischer pointed out it was right in front of them. He told them it was a collection of accessories. The student lied that Filch was on the way and they should run. They left the box behind to frame them so they'd get in trouble with Filch. They later realised they had been tricked and tried to duel the student, only to lose when they used the box against them.[7]

They went to the Library one night to find a newspaper article about Daniel. Daniel, Ivy Warrington and their friend found out that they had broken curfew and went to find out why. They watched the group at a distance, until Colby noticed and told Cassandra.[4]

Second year[]

Third year[]

Colby and Fischer stayed at Hogwarts over the Christmas holidays. They saw the student and Daniel talking in the Great Hall about being on their own for New Year's Eve. They made fun of them for being "losers" and wondered if their friends realised they weren't worth it. After they were called out for also being on their own, Fischer claimed they had a very exclusive party to go to. Colby was confused and told him he thought they were just going to steal dessert in the Hogwarts kitchens because they didn't receive invites to anything.[8]

Fischer "reminded" Colby that they did have an invite to a party, but then told him off at the side for revealing the truth. Colby exclaimed that he did not want to be alone on New Year's Eve as it was "depressing". The student then invited Fischer and Colby to be friends for the day and to go to Hogsmeade with them. They agreed to "do them a favour" and help lessen their loneliness. They spent the day in the village before they arranged a firework display. After, Fischer told the student and Daniel that they had to go back to being "enemies" the next day.[8]

Personality and traits[]

Colby had a mean-spirited personality and enjoyed bullying others with his friends.[4] He and Fisher were antagonistic and didn't consider friendship a priority as they preferred to duel people instead.[9]

He was known to enjoy Herbology, handicraft, and poetry and disliked History of Magic, which he was not good at.[10]

Magical abilities and skills[]

  • Charms: Colby was capable of producing a corporeal Patronus in the form of a rhinoceros, an exceptional magical feat for a Hogwarts student.[2]
  • Herbology: Colby was known to enjoy the subject of Herbology at Hogwarts, the study of magical plants and fungi.[10]


Behind the scenes[]

Ambassador Lesley: "If we give you screenshots of the Frey twins, would you be able to tell them apart? How is one Frey twin different from the other in terms of characterization?"
Rob DeBorde: "Oh, yes, definitely. Fischer’s eyes are a slightly darker shade of mean. No? Okay, so maybe you can’t tell the brothers apart by looking at them, but they do have different personalities. Fischer is the leader, more apt to draw his wand, and always eager to start a fight. Colby is the sensitive soul who hesitates before casting that curse (sometimes) and would rather not get into trouble but has difficulty saying no to his brother. He also has a secret crush on Cassandra, which is going to be an issue later in the story when Cass and Daniel…oops, I’ve said too much!"
