About This Quiz

Something wicked this way comes! 

For the Harry Potter fans out there, you might think you know everything there is to know about the series. Do you really? You might be well-versed in the world of the Golden Trio, but we're throwing a curve ball today. With the hundreds of characters in the Harry Potter world, can you name some of the most obscure?

In 1997, author J.K. Rowling introduced the world to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. The novel follows a boy who discovers he's a wizard and is forced to risk his life for the future of the magical world. With this novel, Rowling introduced characters like Harry, Hermione and Ron. She would introduce other students like Neville Longbottom and Draco Malfoy. They would be taught by McGonagall and Snape, but don't forget our favorite Headmaster, Dumbledore.

These are some of the most iconic characters in the series, but this quiz isn't for them! In her seven novels, J.K. Rowling introduced over 100 characters. How well do you remember the minor characters?

Who was the professor that taught Defence Against the Dark Arts in Year 2? What was the name of the woman who ran the Three Broomsticks? Who gave Harry Potter his first Quidditch lesson? If you can answer these questions, you're ready!

Will you prove that you have magic in your veins, or will your score prove that you're a muggle?

Wands at the ready!
