Flitwick is the surname of a wizarding family. It is unknown if they are Pure-blood or have both Muggle and magical heritage, although there was a Goblin in the family many years ago.
This Goblin was Filius Flitwick's ancestor. Although Professor Flitwick was several generations removed from this individual, he still retained some of his goblin traits, notably a small stature.
Filius Flitwick is a Half-goblin wizard who is the Charms Master, conductor and Head of Ravenclaw House at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
