Mathilda Grimblehawk: "Hello there! I'm afraid we didn't catch your name earlier, what with all your pointing and shouting and general rudeness."

Astor Bellchant was a wizard and member of the Bellchants, a prominent wizarding family. He had a son, Albert, who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1]

In an investigation concerning the disappearance of a wizard named Bilius Finbok, Astor Bellchant was suspected to have blackmailed Finbok into brewing an illegal potion.

Etymology

  • Astor, rarely used as a given name, derives from a surname derived from Occitan astur, meaning "hawk". The Astor family was a very prominent family in business and politics in the United States and the United Kingdom during the 19th and 20th centuries; famous members include John Jacob Astor I, the first multi-millionaire in the United States, William Waldorf Astor, the first Viscount Astor, and John Jacob Astor IV, who famously went down with the RMS Titanic.

Behind the scenes

  • Before he introduces himself to the player, Bellchant's lines are identified as those of "Impatient Wizard". On the Task List, however, he is referred to as "Rude Wizard".
