Professor Helbert Spleen was a Healer who worked at St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries[2]. He doubled as an advice columnist for the Daily Prophet, answering only the questions which related to health[2], while Grizel Hurtz, Zamira Gulch, and Dempster Wiggleswade handled other topics.

Biography

In one issue, Spleen replied to a letter from Howland Coopey[2], diagnosing him with Dragon Pox based on the symptoms he described.

Behind the scenes

  • The Daily Prophet referred to Spleen by the title "Professor." This may indicate that he once taught at a wizarding school. This can be, however, just an academic title.
