"Tamper with the deepest mysteries ― the source of life, the essence of self ― only if prepared for consequences of the most extreme and dangerous kind."
—Waffling's first Fundamental Law of Magic.[src]

Waffling is somewhat seen as the "father of magical theory", as it is a popular claim that every modern witch or wizard has learned from his writings. Waffling was the one who formulated the Fundamental Laws of Magic and wrote Magical Theory, a most popular textbook still being used today in the of young wizards at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Later life

By the 1890s, Waffling was already one of most notable wizards of the date,[1] so it is more than likely he published some of his writings before this point. Around this time Albus Dumbledore, the "most brilliant student ever seen [at Hogwarts]", was in regular correspondence with Waffling in order to exchange ideas about magic.[1]

Waffling died in 1981.
