Unstoppable Force of Chaos
Portrayed by Rik Mayall
Name: Peeves
Aliases: Peevsie
Birthday: Unknown
Position: Hogwarts Pest
Lineage: Poltergeist


Peeves appears like a little black-haired man dressed in loud, outlandish clothes including a bell-covered hat and an orange bow tie. Though solid-looking, he can turn invisible, and even pass through solid objects.


Peeves is a poltergeist at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where he has resided since c. 993. Fond of mischief and chaos, he is a constant source of irritation (and occasionally humour) for the school and its inhabitants.

RP Hooks

Peeves is a community NPC, which means players may use him in scenes in Hogwarts castle.

When using Peeves as a Community NPC, consider the following: Peeves is a spirit of pure chaos. He loves nothing so much as a little mayhem and making trouble for students and faculty alike. Everything is a joke to Peeves, and any attempt to appeal to his compassion will only earn mockery, and probably even worse hazing. Though Peeves is generally harmless, he doesn't have a strong sense of danger, as he is never in any. Still, his pranks don't tend to become too dangerous unless provoked, in which case his wroth can be terrible (though, to him, it just means that it's funnier). The only entity that seems to be able to cow Peeves is the Bloody Baron, though he is gaining a healthy respect for the power of Professor Dumbledore, as well.

The Bloody Baron is just about the only entity that Peeves seems to fear.


Peeves takes extra special delight in driving Nearly-Headless Nick batty.
