Character Information
Portrayed by John Cleese
Name: Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington
Aliases: Nearly-Headless Nick
Birthday: Deathday: October 31, 1492
Position: Gryffindor House Ghost
Lineage: Ghost


As a ghost, Sir Nicholas is pearly-white and slightly transparent. He usually sports a ruff — which ensures his partially severed head stayed in place. He has a preference for extravagant plumed hats. He has long, curly hair, and sports a small moustache and goatee. He carries himself in a prim fashion and speaks in an airy, delicate tone.


Sir Nicholas was a wizard of the royal court of King Henry VII in the Fifteenth Century. He was executed by an improper decapitation, after he had a magical mishap with Lady Grieve, in which she grew a tusk. Since then, he is the resident ghost of Gryffindor Tower at the Hogwarts Castle.

Nicholas and the Baron get along well enough, though Nick is more than aware of how unpleasant the other ghost can be at times.
