About Dobby The House Elf
Dobby was a house-elf who served the Malfoy family. His masters were Dark Wizards who treated him cruelly. In 1992, he tried to warn Harry Potter of the plot to have the Chamber of Secrets reopened which he came to know via the contact between his masters and Lord Voldemort. Dobby had to keep punishing himself because he felt he was disobeying his masters. At the end of that school year, after Harry had vanquished the memory of Tom Riddle and the basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets, he tricked Lucius Malfoy into freeing Dobby by placing his own black sock into the diary of Tom Riddle; this was rudely handed to Dobby.

Following Dumbledore's death, Fawkes sang his Lament over the grounds of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and then left, never to be seen again. His tail feathers were the cores of the two twin wands which were held by Lord Voldemort and Harry Potter. Fawkes has crimson feathers on his body and a golden tail as long as a peacock's. His claws and beak are gleaming gold and his eyes are black. The scarlet body feathers glow faintly in darkness, while the golden tail feathers are hot to the touch.

Dementors Harry Potter
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Height: 3 meters
Eye Color: None
Skin Color: Grey and Scabby
Distinction: Performs the Dementors' kiss, Hovers above the ground, Alters the atmosphere negatively.
Affiliations: Ministry of Magic, Azkaban, Death Eaters

Dementors As Described by Remus Lupin:
"Dementors are among the foulest creatures that walk this earth. They infest the darkest, filthiest places, they glory in decay and despair, they drain peace, hope, and happiness out of the air around them... Get too near a Dementor and every good feeling, every happy memory will be sucked out of you. If it can, the Dementor will feed on you long enough to reduce you to something like itself...soulless and evil. You will be left with nothing but the worst experiences of your life."

About The Deadly Dementors
Dementors are dark creatures, considered one of the foulest to inhabit the world. Dementors feed off human happiness, and thus cause depression and despair to anyone near them. They can also consume a person's soul, leaving their victims in a permanent vegetative state, and thus are often referred to as "soul-sucking fiends" and are known to leave a person as an "empty-shell." The Ministry of Magic employed dementors as the guardians of Azkaban until mid-1996, when Lord Voldemort was sighted in the Ministry, and their defection to his side was realised. The dementors supposedly led the Death Eaters and Voldemort into the Ministry of Magic. Dementors hold no true loyalty, except to whomever can provide them with the most people to feed off. They cannot be destroyed, though their numbers can be limited if the conditions in which they multiply are reduced, implying that they do die off eventually.

JR's Most Noteworthy Deadly Dementors Moment:
When Harry Potter's boggart turned into a dementor. However, Remus Lupin, turned it back to a boggart and returned it inside the cabinet ending the Defense Against Dark Arts class period.

Ukrainian Dragon Harry Potter
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 2)
Ministry of Magic Classification: XXXXX (Wizard Killer)

Eye Color: Pale
Skin Color: Grey
Loyalty: Gringotts Wizarding Bank

About The Ukrainian Ironbelly Dragon
This Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon guarded several high-security vaults, including the Lestrange Vault, at Gringotts Wizarding Bank. It was encountered by Harry Potter and his friends when they infiltrated the bank in 1998, although it is likely the dragon had been guarding the vaults for a long time prior to this. The dragon was aged and half-blind by the spring of 1998. In order to access the vault, clankers were used to drive it away, as it had been trained to fear the sound for it expected pain when it heard it. This was most likely achieved using the process of classical conditioning. After the goblin Griphook abandoned them, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger jumped onto the back of this dragon and quickly escaped. They finally jumped off into a lake as the dragon lowered it's flying height nearer to the water's surface. Although Hermione expressed concern for leaving the dragon in the wild, Ron was confident it would be able to defend for itself without difficulty.

Buckbeak Harry Potter

Ministry of Magic Classification: XXX (Domesticated)

Birth: some prior to 1993
Feathers: Grey
Eye Color: Orange
Loyalty: Order of the Phoenix, Rubeus Hagrid, Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Sirius Black, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

About Buckbeak The Hippogriff
Buckbeak was a Hippogriff. He lived with Rubeus Hagrid and many other Hippogriffs, but was later sentenced to death, due to being taunted and provoked by Draco Malfoy and attacking him. Buckbeak was sentenced to death for this act by the Committee for the Disposal of Dangerous Creatures, most of whom had been threatened by Lucius Malfoy, Draco's father, into voting for that verdict. With the help of Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and her Time-Turner, Buckbeak escaped execution in 1994 and he came under the care of Sirius Black. Sirius kept Buckbeak with him while on the run during the 1994–1995 school year, and later kept him in his mother's bedroom while in hiding at 12 Grimmauld Place. After Sirius's death, Buckbeak came to be owned by Harry Potter through Sirius's will, though Harry allowed him to live with Hagrid. He participated in two battles of the Second Wizarding War, particularly the final battle of that war, the Battle of Hogwarts. He showed great affection and loyalty to Harry, defending him whenever he is near and in danger.

Basilisk Harry Potter
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Ministry of Magic Classification: XXXXX (Wizard Killer)

Eye Color: Yellow
Skin Color: Green
Hair Color: Scarlet Plume
Average Length: 50 ft.

About The Venomous Basilisk
The Basilisk is a giant serpent, also known as the King of Serpents. It is a creature bred by Dark Wizards. Herpo the Foul was the first to breed a Basilisk. He accomplished this by hatching a chicken egg beneath a toad. Basilisk breeding was banned in Medieval times. The practice can be hidden when the Department for Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures comes to check by simply removing the egg from the toad. Although classified as an XXXXX creature, meaning it is a known wizard-killer that cannot be domesticated due to its immense powers, because the Basilisk is still a serpent, a Parselmouth may place a Basilisk under his or her control. This depends on the relationship between the Basilisk and the Parselmouth, as Tom Riddle, alias Lord Voldemort, was the only one who could command Salazar Slytherin's Basilisk, while Harry Potter had no control over it.

JR's Most Noteworthy Venomous Basilisk Moment:
The Basilisk blinded and killed by Fawkes The Phoenix.

About Nagini The Snake
Nagini was a long, green female snake belonging to Lord Voldemort, with whom she had a special bond. She also became a Horcrux, after her master killed Bertha Jorkins in 1994. After Voldemort's initial downfall, he used Nagini's venom as one of the ingredients for a potion in order to regain strength, which eventually led to his rebirth. In 1995, she attacked Arthur Weasley, but he managed to survive. During the Second Wizarding War, she had to be destroyed in order for Voldemort to be finally defeated. Nagini was killed by Neville Longbottom in 1998, and was the last Horcrux to be destroyed.

Hair Color: Blond
Skin Color: Dark (at night)
Occupation: Professor of Divination (1996 - 1997)
Loyalty: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Forbidden Forest Centaur Colony

About Firenze The Centaur
Professor Firenze was a centaur who was formerly part of the Forbidden Forest Centaur colony and one of two Divination teachers at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1996 to 1998. He once lived with his herd in the Forbidden Forest, on the borders of Hogwarts in Scotland. In 1992, Firenze came across an endangered Harry Potter in the forest and saved him from Lord Voldemort, frightening him away and carrying Harry on his back to safety. Despite his heroics, his herd saw this as a dishonourable act, as they considered themselves too great to be ridden by humans. About four years later, Albus Dumbledore, Headmaster of Hogwarts School, hired Firenze to teach Divination in Sybill Trelawney's stead, after she was fired by Dolores Umbridge. But once again, his herd were disgraced and attacked him, and would have killed him were it not for the intervention of Rubeus Hagrid. He taught his lessons in Classroom Eleven, which was decorated as a forest by Dumbledore. By the next school year, Trelawney was reinstated as Divination Professor, but because of Firenze's situation with his herd, allowed them both to continue teaching, though Trelawney was uncomfortable with sharing her classes with a centaur. He also took part in the Battle of Hogwarts, where he was injured, and returned to his herd afterwards, who realised that pro-human leanings were not shameful.

JR's Most Noteworthy Firenze The Centaur Moment:
