Margiechocoholic 09:28, 23 February 2009 (UTC)Wasn't Kingsley Shacklebolt head of the Auror Office in the Ministry for Magic in the 5th (or possibly 4th) book? Or was he just mentioned as being an Auror? Because I remember reading something about him giving a false lead as to Sirius Black's whereabouts...

I dont know but what i do know is that Harry Potter became head of the auror office when he left school at 17

Rufus Scrimgeour was head of the Auror office until he was made Minister for Magic. Harry didn't become head of the department until 2007. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 11:27, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Shacklebolt was only a auror until he got named Minister as a filler-in after the fall of the Dark Lord. In the 5th one he gives Scrimgeour false leads of Sirius being in Tibet so that they seem to be actually looking for SiriusJcabr003 13:29, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

It has never been reveiled who took over as Head of the Auror office when Scrimgeour was promoted to Minister for Magic, but as there was a wizarding war taking place it's likely the position was left open as there would have been no time for formal interviews. When Lord Voldermort and his Death Eaters took over the Ministry of Magic it is unlikely that they would have done much with the Auror office, why promote someone to be the head of a department of dark wizard catchers when you are the dark wizards?

They actually do say who took over Scrimgeour's position. When he goes to visit Harry at the Burrow during Christmas in the 6th book he offers to setup a appointment with Gawain Robards because he is the new Head of the Auror office
