Professor Everard was one of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry's most celebrated Heads.

His portrait hangs in the Headmaster's Office and in the Ministry of Magic's Headquarters.[2]


As Headmaster of Hogwarts

Everard was made Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in an unknown time period. The style of clothing in his portrait suggests that he probably lived in the 19th century. He was a good Headmaster and, after his death, was remembered as one of the most celebrated Heads of Hogwarts.[2]

Attack on Arthur Weasley

When Arthur Weasley was attacked by Nagini in the Department of Mysteries in late 1995, Albus Dumbledore, then Headmaster, asked Everard to go to his portrait at the Ministry of Magic's Headquarters in order to warn others that Mr. Weasley's was injured at the Department.[2]

Behind the scenes


The name "Everard" means "brave boar", derived from the Germanic elements eber, "wild boar" and hard, "brave", "hardy". The Normans introduced it to England, where it joined the Old English cognate Eoforheard. It has only been rarely used since the Middle Ages. Modern use of the name may be inspired by the surname Everard, itself derived from the medieval name.
