This wizard was a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1980s and was sorted into Gryffindor. He had Charms[1] and History of Magic[2] classes with Jacob's sibling.


This individual started attending Hogwarts on 1 September 1984 and was sorted into Gryffindor.[1][2]

The individual frequently struggled with the Levitation Charm in Charms classes, taught by Professor Filius Flitwick.[1]

By their fifth year, Jacob's sibling and their friends did not remember the boy's name. At that point, Ben Copper considered it too rude to ask him for his name. Jacob's sibling forgot the boy was in their year.[2]

Behind the Scenes

  • When Jacob's sibling casts a powerful Levitation Charm to levitate themselves, they mention they have been "practising it over and over with a struggling Gryffindor kid in Charms class".[4] Although unconfirmed, they were likely referring to this individual.
  • This individual is the only student in Jacob's sibling's History of Magic class whose name is unknown, as well as the only one in the class who is not in their Defence Against the Dark Arts class.
