Liz "Lizard" Tuttle[3] was a witch who began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1984 and was Sorted into Slytherin. She chose Care of Magical Creatures as one of her electives.[4]


Hogwarts years (1984-1991)

Liz began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry on 1st of September 1984 and was sorted into Slytherin. She befriended Hufflepuff Penny Haywood at some point by her third year.[3]

Third year

During her third year, Liz met a friend of Penny's, who was looking for ingredients for Polyjuice Potion. Liz pointed her wand at the person and demanded them to choose between the Billywig, Bowtruckle and Bundimun.[3]

Fourth year

In the first Care of Magical Creatures class during the 1987–1988 school year, aside from Barnaby Lee, Liz appeared to be one of the friendlier Slytherin students, who showed genuine interest in the course. She exclaimed to not having seen anything as beautiful as a Fire Crab shooting flame out its rear.[4]

Fifth year

When Jacob's sibling went to talk to the Bloody Baron to ask about Duncan Ashe, Liz joined them along with fellow Slytherins Barnaby Lee, Merula Snyde and Ismelda Murk. Liz thought Barnaby's jokes involving the word "bloody" were funny.[5]

Personality and traits

She was not good at befriending other people, and most saw her as weird. She loved magical creatures and had the desire to become a Magizoologist like Newt Scamander.[3] She seemed to care more about the well-being of creatures than humans, as she feared the blood on the Bloody Baron was creature blood.[5]

Behind the scenes

  • In Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, players who advanced into Year 4 prior to 12 July, 2018‎, would first meet Liz in Year 4; this is due to the belated released Side Quest "Polyjuice Potion," which actually chronologically happened in Year 3.[6]
  • In Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, during the "Search for Odour" part of the Care of Magical Creatures class, when clicking "Sniff Liz," the speech bubble "Lizard smells like lake water and hay" would appear; indicating either her full first name or nickname is "Lizard," or it is a typo.[7] It was later revealed that Lizard was in fact her nickname.[3]
