Gryffindor Quidditch team

Jack Sloper was a Beater on the Gryffindor Quidditch team in 1995. Along with Andrew Kirke, he took over for Fred and George Weasley. He and Kirke were both described as incompetent; this was particularly evident when Sloper knocked himself unconscious with his own bat. He expressed interest in continuing to play for Gryffindor, but was replaced the following year.

Sloper later delivers a message for Albus Dumbledore to Harry Potter with the details of their first lesson.

Etymology

Jack derives from John, which means "God (Herbrew) is gracious".

Sloper could come from the English word slope,a surface in which one side is higher than the other. This could relate to his inability to do things right, since slopes have been described as very hard to climb for some people.
