Prior to 1993
- "Not now thanks, I'm pickling some slugs."
- —Disheveled Wizard.[src]
The wizard was born sometime prior to 1993; due to his grey hair and wrinkled skin, it is likely that he was rather old. He seemed to be a good sleeper, or else rode the Knight Bus rather frequently, as he managed to stay asleep throughout his whole ride. On the 6th of August in 1993, this warlock rode the Knight Bus, falling asleep at the rear of the vehicle. He rode at the same time as the famous Harry Potter, but due to his unconscious state was not aware of the fact. He sleep-talked, and spoke on that eve of pickling slugs.
The wizard had tanned, wrinkled skin and a somewhat long, pointy nose. He had holes in the toes of his black socks, and shoulder-length grey hair. He donned a greying wizard's hat and a black (though somewhat grwy) bath-robe, on the 6th of August.
Magical abilities and skills
- Pickling: This wizard had the ability to pickle slugs, and was so good at it that he refused to be deterred by another person - or so, he dreamed that it was such.
- Sleeping: Despite the bus's many pitches, tremors and turns, and despite the many people talking and the shrunken head laughing and yelling raucously, the wizard managed to stay asleep the whole time.
