Tarquin McTavish had a Muggle neighbour. For unknown reasons, Tarquin magically trapped this neighbour inside a teakettle, which led to the wizard's imprisonment.[1]


The name "Tarquin" comes from the Roman name Tarquinius which is of unknown meaning, possibly Etruscan in origin. This was the name of two early kings of Rome.
