Irma Dugard was a French half-elf who worked as a housekeeper for the Lestrange family. She took care of the young Credence Barebone, signing his adoption paper.



In c. 1901 Irma Dugard was working for Corvus Lestrange. After the birth of his son, Corvus, the former sent the half-elf with his two children, the other being Leta Lestrange, to New York for them to be adopted by Mary Lou Barebone. Irma and the children posed as a grandmother with two grandchildren. On the trip however, frustrated with Corvus' constant screaming, Leta Lestrange exchanged her half-brother with another baby, who turned out to be Credence Barebone, saving the latter's life as the ship they were travelling on sunk during a storm.[1]


In 1927, she was visited by Credence, who wanted to learn the truth about his family.[2] After an unfortunately short meeting, she was killed by Gunnar Grimmson on Gellert Grindelwald's orders.[3]


  • Dugard is likely derived from the French "du garde" which translates to "of the guard".
