Mr Patil was the father of Parvati and Padma Patil. During the 1996–1997 school year, he and his wife, Mrs Patil, feared their twin daughters would not be safe at Hogwarts because of the return of Lord Voldemort. The couple nearly withdrew the girls from school, but ultimately refrained from doing so. Upon Draco Malfoy succeeding in allowing Death Eaters entrance into the castle, they immediately reverted their decision and retrieved the twins.
