History of Magic teacher[2]

Professor Cuthbert Binns[3] was a wizard and later a ghost who taught History of Magic at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry[4]. A popular conversation among staff when he is not around is whether Professor Binns realises he is dead or not[4].

Physical appearanceEdit

Binns was extremely wrinkled and, when he pursed his lips, looked like an extremely old tortoise[2]. Being a ghost, he was transparent in every aspect[2]. He had a dry, wheezy, reedy voice that sounded like an old vacuum cleaner[2].

Personality and traitsEdit

Binns was obsessive and believed it was his duty to disgorge as much information to his class as he could. He grew frustrated when students attempted to sidetrack him by any means, as seen with his angry outburst after a second-year class peppered him with questions about the legendary Chamber of Secrets. He was so passionate about teaching that he returned as a ghost to continue his job.
