Kennilworthy Whisp was an author and Quidditch expert, known for having written a number of Quidditch-related works, including Quidditch Through the Ages. Whisp resided in Nottinghamshire in England, and divided his time between his home and wherever the Wigtown Wanderers were playing. His hobbies included playing backgammon, vegetarian cookery, and collecting vintage broomsticks. Despite liking vegetarian cookery, he was not a vegetarian.
