- "Usually the lightest and fastest fliers, Seekers need both a sharp eye and the ability to fly one- or no-handed"
- —Description of Seekers[src]
Seeker is a position in the wizarding sport of Quidditch. There is one Seeker per team. The goal of the Seeker is to catch the Golden Snitch. They play a crucial role in Quidditch, as a game does not end until the Seeker catches the Snitch. A team whose Seeker catches the Snitch receives 150 points, which almost always wins the match for that team. Seekers are generally the smallest and lightest players on a team, and there is a certain glamour attached to playing as a Seeker. Generally, the Seeker is also the most fouled player on the team.
In team portraits, the Seeker sits in the middle of the first row.
