Gawain Robards was an Wizard who worked for the Auror Office under the command of Rufus Scrimgeour during the Second Wizarding War.

Biography

Following Cornelius Fudge's fall from power in 1996, Scrimgeour replaced Fudge as Minister for Magic, and as such Robards was promoted to replace Scrimgeour as Head of the Auror Office. Scrimgeour, during his attempts to convince Harry Potter to become the Ministry of Magic's new "poster boy", offered to set up an interview with Robards, knowing he cherished a desire to join the Auror department one day, in exchange for his cooperation. Harry, however, refused.

It is unknown who initially succeeded Robards as Head of the Auror Office, but he was eventually succeeded by Harry Potter himself following the end of the war.

Etymology

The meaning of the name "Gawain" is uncertain, from the name of a nephew of King Arthur and one of the knights of the Round Table in Arthurian legend. He was a popular hero in medieval stories such as the 14th-century romantic poem 'Sir Gawain and the Green Knight'. In some Welsh sources he is considered identical with the earlier Welsh hero Gwalchmei, whose name meant "hawk of May". Alternatively the name may have a different Welsh meaning or even a Germanic origin.

The family name "Robards" means "son of Robert" also a Germanic, French and Latvian name meaning "Bright fame".
