Guards of the staffroom entrance


Hogwarts School

Gargoyle #1: "You should be in class, Sonny Jim."
Harry: "This is urgent."
Gargoyle #2: "Ooooh, urgent, is it? Well, that's put us in our place, hasn't it?"
Harry Potter tries to get into the staffroom.[src]

These two gargoyles stand in the staffroom corridor, protecting the staffroom at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In 1995, Harry Potter tried to get into the staffroom to see Professor Grubbly-Plank after his owl Hedwig was injured. They were less than sympathetic to his pleading.

During the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998, both gargoyles were smashed apart by a stray jinx that had sailed through a broken window. As Harry rushed past them, one of the broken gargoyle's heads remarked "Oh, don't mind me... I'll just lie here and crumble..."
