Character Information
Portrayed by Wallace Shawn
Name: Orville Nesmith
Aliases: Nessie
Birthday: Undetermined
Position: British Museum Curator
Lineage: Squib


What an unassuming little fellow. A hair above 5'2, with a bald pate and habitual, gummy smile, Orville is likely the most unintimidating figure anyone has ever set eyes upon, in every way. He seems to be constantly on the verge of a chuckle, an expression which one might mistake for a lack of wits were it not for the keen intelligence in his blue eyes. Tubby, though not exactly overweight, he looks to be in his fifties, at least.

A businesslike grey suit, despite being nicely cut and finished off with a neat shirt and tie, fails to grant Orville any additional grandeur. But it does show that he takes some things seriously.



  • Good Sense of Humour
  • Detail-Oriented
  • Wealth: Well-To-Do

RP Hooks

  • He's the curator of the British Museum, a rather prestigious post.
  • Though a Squib, he was not placed at the museum by the Ministry. His contact with the wizarding world is specific and limited, and most wizards have no idea that he is anything but a Muggle.
