"Ran inter a couple o' mad trolls on the Polish border an' I had a sligh' disagreement with a vampire in Minsk."
Rubeus Hagrid on his encounter with the vampire[src]

This vampire had a disagreement with the half-giant Rubeus Hagrid in a pub in Minsk in the summer of 1995.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The way Hagrid explained the encounter suggests that the 'disagreement' was a fight of some kind, however, this was not confirmed.
  • The fact that this vampire was in Belarus in Eastern Europe may be a reference to the fact that vampires such as Dracula are traditionally said to haunt this area.
