"There was some pretty nasty stuff that wasn't my department, though. Mortlake was taken away for questioning about some extremely odd ferrets, but that's the Committee on Experimental Charms, thank goodness…"
Arthur Weasley.[src]

Mortlake was a wizard who kept ferrets. In 1992, a Ministry of Magic raid on his home confiscated the ferrets, because they appeared to have experimental charms placed on them. The case was referred to the Committee on Experimental Charms.[1]

Etymology

  • Mort is the Latin word for "death"; a lake is a large body of water. Hence, the name translates roughly to "death lake" or "lake of death".
