Ernest "Ernie" Prang,[1] (fl. 1993-1997) also called Ern by Stanley Shunpike, was the driver of the Knight Bus.

BiographyEdit

1993Edit

Harry Potter first encountered Prang in 1993, when he was picked up by the Knight Bus after leaving his Aunt and Uncle's house. Stan Shunpike, the conductor of the Knight Bus, sometimes calls Ernie by his nickname: Ern. When Harry was taken to the Leaky Cauldron Ernie followed him in and was forced to leave by Cornelius Fudge, the then-Minister of Magic.[2]

1997Edit

Ernie was also present at Albus Dumbledore's funeral in 1997. Little more is known about Ernie.[3]

Physical appearanceEdit

Prang is described as an elderly wizard with very thick glasses giving him an "owlish" appearance. Ernie doesn't talk much (leaving that to Stan Shunpike, preferring to concentrate on his driving). His driving skills leave much to be desired as he frequently drives off the road and objects must jump out of his way (post boxes, lamp posts, trees, etc.).[2]

EtymologyEdit

Ernie Prang and Stan Shunpike, the driver and conductor of the Knight Bus, were named after J. K. Rowling's grandfathers, Ernest Arthur Rowling and Stanley George Volant, respectively.[1] Ernie's last name is a play on words, as "prang" is English slang meaning "to wreck an automobile".
