Peakes family

Glanmore Peakes (1677-1761) was a Scottish wizard notorious for having slain the Sea Serpent of Cromer.


Peakes was born in 1677, in Scotland, Great Britain. It is likely[1] that he attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1688 to 1695.

Sometime after graduating, Peakes killed the Sea Serpent of Cromer, a sea serpent that lived off the shores of Cromer, Norfolk. This led to his having a Famous Wizard Card fashioned depicting him.

There was a corridor named after him on the sixth floor of Hogwarts Castle. There was also a bust of Glanmore by the door to his corridor, as well as a portrait of him inside said corridor.[2] There was also a set of portraits of Peakes hiding a secret passage between the sixth-floor landing of the Grand Staircase and the Entrance Hall side room. The password to said passage was "Sea Serpent".[3]
