Boris the Bewildered was a wizard from an unknown time period. A statue of him stands on the fifth floor of Hogwarts Castle, near the Prefects' bathroom. His statue featured a lost-looking wizard with his gloves on the wrong hands.[1] A portrait of Boris also hangs on Hogwarts' walls, guarding a secret passageway between the second floor corridor and the third floor corridor. The password was Forget-Me-Never.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • Boris may have died sometime prior to 1995, as many portraits hung at Hogwarts depict deceased individuals.

Etymology

"Boris" is from the Turkic name Bogoris, perhaps meaning "short" or "wolf".
