The Dread Headmaster
Portrayed by John Noble
Name: Gervase Flint
Aliases: Gerry
Birthday: April 24 1872
Position: Retiree
Lineage: Pure-blood


Gervase Flint is a dour looking man. Of that, there can be no debate. Stern and forbidding, the man's iron grey hair hangs past his shoulders, always slicked back severely from his face. His deep steel blue eyes, lined by years of frowning and slung with heavy bags, glitter shrewdly; one can almost feel the unforgiving evaluation that doubtless happens behind that gaze. Heavy jowls and somber, rich robes only further the image of a fearsome, powerful wizard.


Born to a simple family in the rural town of Clare in Suffolk County. At least they seemed simple to most of their neighbors. The Flints kept to themselves and though the town could name names, there really was very little else known besides those names.

Flint was sorted into Slytherin at Hogwarts, and graduated in 1889 with top marks. After a grand tour of Europe, he went on to work for several publishing houses, applying his expertise in runes and languages. In 1911, he was hired on as Professor of the Study of Ancient Runes. In 1938, after the removal of Armando Dippet, Flint was appointed Headmaster of Hogwarts. In 1939 he retired after a questionable incident involving the M.L.E.. Following his resignation, he and most of his family reportedly left Britain for Norway, with their destination seeming to be Durmstrang — where he is rumored to be on the faculty now when he is not doing all he can for Grindelwald and the Army of Truth.

Flint and Dumbledore rarely see eye-to-eye about anything. They have professional respect for one another, but it generally ends there.


Sirius Black is Flint's best (and possibly only) friend. He has often been seen to accept counsel from Sirius, even if he doesn't always abide by it.
