"...and that's Bode and Croaker ...they're Unspeakables... From the Department of Mysteries, top secret, no idea what they get up to..."
Arthur Weasley points out Bode and Croaker to Harry Potter and Hermione Granger[src]

Professor Saul Croaker[1] was an Unspeakable for the Department of Mysteries, having spent his entire career studying time-magic[1]. On the summer of 1994. Croaker attended the 1994 Quidditch World Cup final, either attending with or meeting fellow Unspeakable Broderick Bode. Croaker was among the Ministry employees that passed by the Weasley family's campsite.


A "Croaker" is someone who habitually predicts evil; it has that sense because croaking is a noise made by crows and ravens, who are considered death omens, as they are carrion eaters.
