Mudbloods and Murmurs - Task 1

Recommended Posts

Hagrid lets slip that Lockhart wasn't the most qualified person to become Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher but instead he is the only person who was brave/stupid enough to take on the job. Obviously we know that Quirrel came to a sticky end due to having Voldemort on the back of his head but I do wonder what happened to the others.

 

Tell me the name of one of the previous DADA teachers, how long they lasted in the post and why they vacated the position. Use your imaginations and be rewarded with 10 scales. Deadline 23:59 HOL time on 30th April.

Prof. Alice Dewdrop, one of the few female DADA professors, left the position shortly after Salazar left the school. Many of his supporters found themselves to be the targets of several unfortunate "accidents" and it became too much for her when all of her books were bewitched to yell the glossaries whenever someone walked passed.

As a direct descendant of a former Headmaster of Hogwarts, Vivienne Viridian agreed to take the unwanted post of Defense Against the Dark Arts professor in 1988. She was especially knowledgeable on the subject of curses. Of course, Curses and Countercurses by Vindictus Viridian was a required textbook for fifth years and older during her year as Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher.

 

During her short tenure at Hogwarts, Vivienne Viridian spent much of her free time in the Greenhouses with the energetic Herbology professor, Pomona Sprout. Viridian discovered her love for plants, especially those in the evergreen family paralleling her given name. She decided to vacate the Defense Against the Dark Arts position at the end of the school year. Using her year's salary to purchase a plot of land, Vivienne Viridian planted seeds that grew into a luscious forest. Since the turn of the century, no magical family spends Christmas without a Vivienne Viridian tree in their home.
