Gilderoy Lockhart

Gilderoy Lockhart is a character in the Harry Potter book and movie series. During his time as a Ravenclaw student, he received many prestigious awards, and he isn’t shy about letting everyone know it. After graduating Hogwarts, he became a celebrity in the wizarding world. In particular he wrote books about his encounters with magical creatures, such as Gadding with Ghouls and Travels with Trolls. When Dumbledore appoints Lockhart as the Defense Against the Dark Arts professor, Hermione becomes smitten by his knowledge. Yet Harry and Ron (and most everyone else) find him obnoxious. Although there’s more to him than meets the eye: he tricked actual accomplished wizards into revealing their stories, and then erased their memories with Memory Charms so he could take all the credit. In the film adaptation, Kenneth Branagh plays this role.

Wizard Whitebeard

Wizard Whitebeard is another character who joins Waldo in his journeys through the Where’s Waldo? books. He’s known for his extremely long beard, which is a trait that sometimes makes it easier to find him.

He is the most powerful wizard in the world, and has some eccentric traits, like his love of knitting patterns.
