This wizard taught Muggle Studies at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at least in the 1992–1993 school year. In 1992, he had gained a student assistant to assist him and manage the classroom while he was absent.
When Harry Potter was given a torch by a Muggle student, he brought it to the professor's classroom, thinking it might be the right place for it. Instead of the teacher, he met his assistant and the torch was included in the artefact collection. He left at some point before the 1996–1997 school year, and was possibly replaced by Professor Charity Burbage.
Behind the scenes
- It is possible that this individual was Arif Sikander, as a teacher that went unidentified in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone whose likeness Sikander was possibly based on made an appearance as a non-speaking background character.
- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (video game) (First mentioned) (GBC version)
Notes and references
- "World Exclusive Interview with J K Rowling," South West News Service, 8 July 2000 - "Hogwarts just serves Britain and Ireland."

- "Harry refers to the teacher as a "he", so Burbage could not have been teaching during 1992, so she presumably began teaching in the 1993–1994 school year.
