—Giffard Abbott[src]

Giffard Abbott was a wizard. There are portraits of him hanging in Hogwarts Castle. He had a pet dog. He seemed to have access to a source of food, because Damara Dodderidge frequently asked him if he had any to give her.[2]

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Giffard may have attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was probably Sorted into Hufflepuff.

1992-1993 school yearEdit

In early 1993, Giffard had a portrait at the Grand Staircase, hung immediately below the first-floor landing. As it was placed in an inaccessible place, it is unlikely he guarded any shortcut to another part of the school.[3]

1995-1996 school yearEdit

One of his portraits was hanging at the Grand Staircase, guarding the shortcut to the Transfiguration Courtyard, under the password "Dragon's Egg".[2] There was another set of portraits of him, hiding another hidden passageway between the Clock Tower and the corridor outside the Library; the password needed to gain access to this shortcut was "Tempus neminem manet".[4]

1996-1997 school yearEdit

Giffard's portrait was moved to another landing of the Grand Staircase, during the next school year. However, he still guarded a secret passage to the same place in the Transfiguration Courtyard. Its password became "Light Against Darkness". He had a penchant for sighing wistfully, "Oh, to be young again!", when approached.[5]

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Giffard may have died sometime prior to early 1993, as many portraits hung at Hogwarts depict deceased individuals. His clothes indicate that he most likely lived during the Middle Ages.
  • It is possible that Abbott's portrait is a reference to a portrait of Emperor Charles V of the Holy Roman Empire by Titian.

EtymologyEdit

  • "Giffard" is from an English surname, which was derived from the Germanic given name "Gebhard".[6]
  • "Abbott" is a Middle English surname.[7]
