"Duelling against the Hufflepuff junior champion... Harry Potter!"
— Announcing a duel[src]

The Hufflepuff Duelling Club Captain as the title suggests, refers to the Duelling Club captain for the Hufflepuff house. He is a selected student from the Hufflepuff house to represent the house in the Duelling Club.[3]


Early life

This boy attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry via the Hogwarts Express in the 1990s and was Sorted into Hufflepuff House during the Sorting ceremony. His Head of House was Pomona Sprout, the Herbology Professor, and he shared a dormitory with four boys in his year in the Hufflepuff Basement, which is located below ground level and near the Hogwarts kitchens. He apparently excelled at Defence Against the Dark Arts and was chosen to represent Hufflepuff as the Hufflepuff Duelling Club Captain, possibly at 1992 when Gilderoy Lockhart set up the club.[3]

1996–1997 school year

In 1996, when Defence Against the Dark Arts was taught by Professor Severus Snape, the Hufflepuff boy witnessed Harry Potter duelling Vincent Crabbe, who tried to attack when he was in a hurry. He defeated Crabbe effortlessly and was approached by the boy, who was impressed by his remarkable duelling skills asked him to show the rest of the Duelling Club how to cast the Shield Charm, which he did easily.[3]
