Dumbledore was incapable of over-ruling the Ministry's decision despite him being Chief Warlock of the Wizengamot. After Voldemort's death and Harry revealing that he was the true master of the Elder Wand, he said to Dumbledore's portrait that he was going to return the wand to his tomb where it would remain until he died and should he be undefeated, he would be the wand's last master which would break its power. At first, the two headmasters greeted each other as old friends, seemingly showing no animosity. Among these friends, he counted the French alchemist Nicolas Flamel and Ilvermorny Charms Professor Eulalie Hicks. For this reason, he imposed a blanket ban on all future attempts to look for, not to mention entering any of the Cursed Vaults by any students, as each one would be likely to unleash another curse on the school if tampered with. They fought together in many battles, and the intimacy of their friendship can be demonstrated by an instance where the usually formidable, no-nonsense Moody actually teased Dumbledore for his hatred of the Dementors. Having convened with the rest of the faculty upon his return to the castle, more noteworthy than the numerous encounters that members of the student body had had with their worst fears in his absence, however, was a nearly instantaneous drop in Boggart-related incidents that had just taken place; an improvement that coincided suspiciously well with what Professor Snape had only just been told by two of his Slytherin students; Merula Snyde and Ismelda Murk. Whilst he had left Greyback and the rest of the werewolves he had been able to catch safely tied up on the Training Grounds for his colleagues to find, there was one werewolf that had stood out among the rest; a female werewolf with white fur that Jacob's sibling had called "a friend", and whom the Ministry official had decided to bring to Dumbledore instead of to the Ministry. Under the influence of Lucius Malfoy, the Hogwarts board of governors voted to remove Dumbledore from his position as Headmaster when he proved unable to uncover the culprit; Minister for Magic Cornelius Fudge also had the groundskeeper Rubeus Hagrid taken to Azkaban, acting under the theory that it had been he who opened the Chamber in 1943. That was not to say, however, that Dumbledore was completely in the dark about the fact that there was something amiss. In the end, their hunt for the vaults ended in tragedy when Duncan was killed while attempting to brew a particularly potent Erumpent Potion in an effort to get past one of the obstacles standing between them and one of the Cursed Vaults. In an interview on the DVD of, A younger Dumbledore (aged around 62) is portrayed by, Michael Gambon also voices Professor Dumbledore in. (c. Summer, 1881 – 30 June, 1997) was the Transfiguration Professor, and later Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He never knew that he would be the most powerful wizard to ever lived and that his life would change when he met one particular girl on the train. As such, when Dumbledore took the podium at the Start-of-Term Feast to welcome students new and old for another year of learning, he also offered a word of caution to his usual speech; instructing them all to be extra careful as they journeyed through the castle that year, and to immediately inform one of their teachers if they saw anything out of the ordinary. Dumbledore was tall and thin, with silver hair and a beard, both of which were long enough to tuck into his belt. A group of Muggles saw Albus’ sister Ariana Dumbledore while she was doing magic, and they attacked her that reasoned by mentally depress her. He presumably did so in order to both give his brother some space, as well as to get away for a bit and spend his time grieving more productively than he otherwise would have done simply wallowing in his own misery. He also had several of his papers published during his studies and exchanged letters with theoretician Adalbert Waffling. [30], They next found themselves in a vast chamber containing an underground lake, with a solitary island at its centre from which a faint green light was visible. Newt Scamander, his former student and friend. Newt decided to take the blame and was sentenced to expulsion by Headmaster Phineas Nigellus Black. Elphias thought Dumbledore was a very great wizard, and a very great person, and believed that his many early losses endowed him with great humanity and strong sympathy, as he stated in an obituary he wrote for Albus Dumbledore, after his death. Another Professor was Sybill Trelawney, who taught Divination. Harry also attempted to console Dumbledore when his old teacher asked if he had been any better than Voldemort in his quest for power; Harry pointed out that Dumbledore had never killed if he could avoid it, and argued that Dumbledore's search for the Hallows, as opposed to any attempts to create Horcruxes, made him completely different from Voldemort. With this piece, I have the opportunity to share that feeling with you!

[22], Professor Dumbledore kept a journal in which he would have written in regularly. The son of Percival and Kendra Dumbledore, and the elder brother of Aberforth and Ariana. Snape later objected to the plan, but was reminded by Dumbledore that it was the only way to spare him from great suffering. While his presence at Hogwarts effectively ensured that the Dark Lord and his followers never strayed too close to the school, Dumbledore was still unable to prevent the security of the castle from being breached when one of his students embarked on a foolhardy quest to uncover the secrets of the fabled Cursed Vaults,[42] presumably in order to get his hands on the gold, prophecies and various other powerful magical artefacts myth would have it had been sealed within them. Burdened by the secret knowledge of Grindelwald's imminent rise to power and wanting to rectify past mistakes, it was natural, perhaps, that he felt drawn towards the job of Defence Against the Dark Arts instructor, a position in which he could most easily prepare his charges for the dangers he knew one day would come. Dumbledore had also a good relationship with Sirius Black, James Potter's best friend and Harry Potter's godfather, as well as a member of the Order of the Phoenix, an organisation that Dumbledore led to oppose Voldemort and his followers. [47] This did not dissuade the adventurous youths, however, who continued their search despite Dumbledore's firm words of caution. Dumbledore was behind the final, and most powerful protection placed upon the stone. He sent his former student to Paris to find Credence Barebone, who survived battle in New York, and rescue him from Grindelwald. Once there, he asked them to see him in his study later that day, during which he wanted to discuss both the pupil's "unprecedented heroics" in once again breaking a curse that threatened the whole school, and to hear everything that they could possibly tell him about the vault that they had entered. [36], Dumbledore hinting that Harry and Hermione should travel back in time, As the school year drew to its close, it became clear to Harry and his friends that Sirius Black had been framed for his crimes, commuted by Pettigrew, who has been disguised as Scabbers for twelve years. After his death, he left Ron his Deluminator (a unique artefact created by Dumbledore himself) and Hermione his copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard . --Chrysalis 03:51, 10 September 2005 (UTC) spoiler warning. The next year was by no means any less troublesome than the previous year, with Jacob's sibling and their friends more determined than ever to stopping R and finding the last Cursed Vault, despite Dumbledore's attempts to make them focus on their studies. (It appears and is implied that his brother's punch during their sister's funeral played a role in shaping his nose.) However, she might have helped in another way. The corpse of his sister, Ariana[12] He was also disgusted that Greyback had started to attack outside the full moon and enjoyed the taste of human flesh.

Upon finding Grindelwald, Dumbledore engaged him in what would later be widely considered the greatest duel ever fought between two wizards. As a supremely talented wizard, Dumbledore showed numerous examples of extraordinary abilities. Half-blood After school Newt probably was in a regular contact with his teacher. Full Name. Using these memories, along with some of his own, he discovered that Voldemort had created six Horcruxes, an unheard of event, been guilty of murders that he framed others for, and also figured out what the Horcruxes could be based on Voldemort's ego and his long interest in Hogwarts: Tom Riddle's Diary, Gaunt's Ring, Hufflepuff's Cup, Slytherin's Locket, Nagini, and an object of Rowena Ravenclaw's (later revealed to be her lost diadem).

He sent Newt to Paris to rescue Credence, who survived battle in New York, but Newt was reluctant, nevertheless he was willing to accept the address of a safe-house. Hair colour Presumably well aware that Lord Voldemort wasn't truly vanquished, Dumbledore made sure that Harry would be kept safe with his family, the Dursleys, despite them not being selected as his guardians in the event of James and Lily's death, as his spells ensured that Voldemort could not harm Harry there as long as he could have a home with those with whom he was related by blood. He only used the wand for one feat: to repair his own wand which had been broken earlier. Once the pupil in question presented themselves, however, the Headmaster revealed that he had nothing worse in store for them than wanting to solicit their assistance in organising a surprise party for their trusty Groundskeeper; a task, he was delighted to find, they gladly accepted. Knowing that the curse would kill him, Dumbledore asked Snape, that when the time came, that he be the one to end Dumbledore's life, rather than Draco Malfoy. For example, Hagrid is the one tasked to protect Harry Potter as he is brought to live with the Dursleys, in addition he is asked to bring the Philosopher's Stone back from Gringotts. Newt's visit to New York resulted not only in the discovery of Credence Barebone, the most powerful Obscurus ever recorded (the only one to survive into adulthood), but also in the capture of Grindelwald, who had been disguised as a high-ranking official at MACUSA by the name of Percival Graves to find the Obscurus.
