Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington (d. 31 October, 1492), known postmortem as Nearly Headless Nick[1] was a Muggle-born[2] wizard and the Ghost of Gryffindor House[1]. He had something of a disliking toward Sir Patrick Delaney-Podmore when the latter interruped his five hundredth Deathday Party[1].

Being a ghost, Sir Nicholas was naturally transparent[1]. He had long, wavy hair and a small beard, and usually wore a ruff to hold his head on[6].
