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. After his death, he 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] In June 1997, following the Death Eater attack on Hogwarts and the death of Albus Dumbledore]], he informed Professor Minerva McGonagall that Rufus Scrimgeour was on his way, having just disapparated from the Ministry of Magic.[3]


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.
