Character Information
Portrayed by Billy Connolly
Name: Hadrian Whittle
Birthday: November 24th, 1873
Position: Professor of Herbology
Lineage: Half-Blood


An expressive man with a wild mop of salt and pepper curls stands far over average height. His frame is broad and imposing but made more acceptable by his boisterous demeanor. A trimmed moustache and a faint scrub beneath his lip match the arching brows over his head. A flat broad nose and rounded chin give him some extra flesh. Laugh lines have been etched into his features, adding further color to the Scotchman's personality.

The grey blue silk shirt in its faint spiraling patterns is joined by a deep blue vest embroidered with circles set within each other. A pair of dark pants fall somewhat wrinkled to the pair of loafers on his feet. The waist watch chain hangs from the pocket of his vest.

Herbert and Hadrian are long-time colleagues and friends. More than once, Hadrian was asked to advise on some herbological project of Herbert's. It was Professor Beery himself that recommended Hadrian as his replacement.


There's a strange bond between these men, even though they are nothing alike on the surface. Perhaps it is simply the kinship of two proud Scotsmen.
