Biography

Death

Little is known about Sir Patrick's life. However, we do know that he was beheaded (probably was executed, murdered or had an accident).

As Head of the Headless Hunt

Sir Patrick is in charge of the Headless Hunt. He doesn't make any exceptions to the rules - a ghost must be completely headless to join. This came as a terrible blow to the ego of Nearly Headless Nick, who was denied entrance to the Headless Hunt because his head is still attached to his body (albeit barely).

Sir Nicholas 500th Deathday Party

Sir Patrick appeared at Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington's five-hundredth Deathday Party in 1992[1], where he stole much of Sir Nicholas' thunder by cracking jokes and making light of the sombre atmosphere.

The Battle of Hogwarts

The Headless Hunt fought in the Battle of Hogwarts. [2] Therefore Sir Patrick most likely defended the school the best as a ghost could.

Etymology

The name "Patrick" comes from the Latin name Patricius, which meant "nobleman". This name was adopted in the 5th-century by Saint Patrick, whose birth name was Sucat. He was a Romanized Briton who was captured and enslaved in his youth by Irish raiders. After six years of servitude he escaped home, but he eventually became a bishop and went back to Ireland as a missionary. He is traditionally credited with Christianizing the island, and is regarded as Ireland's patron saint.
