Character Information
Portrayed by Ricky Gervais
Name: Didimus Gibbon
Aliases: Dids
Birthday: June 25th, 1887
Position: Owner of The Magical Menagerie
Lineage: Pure-Blood


One might be forgiven for thinking Didimus Gibbon little more than an unfortunate vagrant, such is his lack of concern for appearances. Wild, shoulder length chestnut hair frames well-fed features, with woefully long sideburns to draw the eye inward to those plump cheeks and calculating eyes, though a cheeky grin does occasionally warm his countenance. He's not particularly tall and his physique definitely implies a person of leisure rather than action.

It should come as no real surprise that his attire seems to be selected for functionality rather than style. An ancient-looking brown furry fedora keeps his tangled mane partially under wraps and a beige trench coat is slung loosely atop a burnt umber shirt and crumpled orange cravat. The only attempt to imply any sort of active lifestyle, in fact, is the aged tan breeches he wears tucked untidily into thick hide boots, with a slight heel to compensate for his diminutive stature.
