Peter Hansen was a Scandinavian wizard who played as a Chaser on the Nordic National Quidditch team during the four-hundred and twenty-second Quidditch World Cup, in 1994. He is possibly Danish.[1]

During the 1996–1997 school year, Hansen's Chocolate Frog Card was able to be won by beating Helen Dawlish at a duelling challenge.[2]


The name "Peter" is derived from the Greek Πετρος (Petros) meaning "stone". This is a translation used in most versions of the New Testament of the name Cephas, meaning "stone" in Aramaic, which was given to the apostle Simon by Jesus'. Simon Peter was the most prominent of the apostles during Jesus's ministry and is often considered the first pope.
