Lord Draben[1] (fl. 1600s),[3] otherwise known as the Ghost of the Cavalier,[4] was a wizard who had some connection with Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[2]


In his lifetime, Lord Draben was a Cavalier: a Royalist supporter of King Charles I and his son Charles II during the English Civil War, the Interregnum, and the Restoration in the mid-seventeenth century.[2]

When Lord Draben died, he became a ghost, taking residence at Hogwarts Castle. He attended the Start-of-Term Feast in 1991, and later joined a group of ghost carollers singing Christmas at Hogwarts later that year.[2]
