Krafft was a wizard who lived during the early 20th century. He was a member of Gellert Grindelwald's Alliance, and was among the dark wizard's foremost acolytes.[1]


Krafft joined Gellert Grindelwald at some point prior to 1927 and became one of his acolytes. He travelled to Paris to help Grindelwald's plans in recruiting Credence Barebone and attended his rally at the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise in the Lestrange Mausoleum. Krafft disapparated away after crossing the enchanted fire that tested one's loyalty following the entrance of Aurors and did not participate in the subsequent battle after that.[1]

Physical appearance

Krafft wore a militaristic jacket.[2]

Magical abilities and skills

  • Apparition: Kraft was capable of apparition like most other accomplished adult wizards. He successfully disapparated away from the Lestrange Mausoleum in 1927 to escape the battle there and spread the word of his master.[1]


  • Krafft may be derived from the word "kraft", which in Swedish, Norwegian and Danish can be used to mean "power" or "force" depending on the context, or the German counterpart, in which it means just the former.
