Character Information
Portrayed by Alex Kingston
Name: Enid Pettigrew
Aliases: Professor Pettigrew
Birthday: 9 July, 1888
Position: Gryffindor Head of House, Professor of Transfiguration
Lineage: Half-blood


Five feet and seven inches of cosmopolitan vivacity, Enid Pettigew is a charming and charismatic force of nature. Her clothing blends fashions from all over the wizarding world, from places as far flung as Mongolia and South Africa to the steamy tropics of Brazil and India. Her tawny hair springs around her face in leonine curls, and that face of hers is intelligent, with brilliantly expressive and vaguely feline green eyes that seem to have seen much and learned more. She has a warmth and welcome about her that mingles easily with the languid athleticism of a jungle cat. But when she's on the move, it's a race to keep up, be it with her steps or her thoughts. She is quick, capable, and desperately clever.


Nobody has ever accused Enid Pettigrew of being boring. From her humble origins, this vivacious witch took life by the horns and hasn't let go yet. Even as a child, her magical outbursts were frequent and often required the Accidental Magic Reversal Squad to repair them.

At Hogwarts, she was sorted into Gryffindor the moment the Sorting Hat touched her brow. By her Second Year she had made the house Quidditch team, serving as a top notch chaser for the rest of her time at Hogwarts. She was even made Captain in Sixth and Seventh Year. She excelled in Transfiguration, earning top marks even through her NEWT class. By the end of her Sixth Year, she was a registered animagus, though the faculty frowned upon her turning into a cheetah on school grounds.

After Hogwarts, Enid's need to keep moving took over. She left for a grand tour of Europe, and simply didn't come back. At least not for several years. She took jobs anywhere that would take her to some remote, primal location, be it high in the Swiss Alps, deep in the rain forests of Africa, or lost in the middle of the Sahara. Anywhere was fine as long as there was an adventure to be had.

She would return to England every few years to visit family, and more than once came along with a new husband and a new child. She has given birth to three children, each by a different father. All are grown now, and save for the time they had to spent at Hogwarts, all received their worldly education while traveling their their mother.

Logs featuring Enid Logs that refer to Enid



Enid's eldest daughter, by her first husband, Liert Kyburz. Born in 1909. Of all of her children, Darla is the least like Enid. They get along well enough, but Enid is a bit disappointed at how readily Darla settled down. But much of that disappointment faded when after Darla's first child was born. Enid loves being a grandmother as much as being a mother, though Darla is a bit protective of her children, wanting them to have a more stable childhood than she had.


Enid's son by her third husband, Enitan Akinyemi. Born in 1917. Eshu is named for the orisha of roads. He is a travel guide by trade, mostly guiding Muggles and making sure they stay away from hidden magical places. Eshu has a mischievous streak, and is fond of spinning wild tales (again, often to confuse and obfuscate magical truths from Muggles). Enid and Eshu have much in common, though Eshu's powerful sense of independence led him to strike out on his own adventures as soon as he graduated from Hogwarts. They write one another, and she still gets to see him now and then, when they are in similar parts of the world. But Enid does miss having her boy around.


Enid's daughter by her fourth husband, Jun Qian. Born in 1921. Zoe is Enid's baby girl, and she has always been a bit more protective of her than her other children. Still, she never stifled Zoe, as she wanted her to have amazing experiences and breathe in the world. Enid simply had more wisdom and a better sense of precaution by the time Zoe was born. They get along famously, sometimes more like sisters than mother and daughter. In a way, Zoe represents Enid's fleeting youth.


Enid's youngest child is not yet born. She affectionately calls him or her "Cubby". The little one is due sometime around Christmas of 1941.
