Septimus Malfoy was a pure-blood wizard who lived during the late 18th century. He was influential in the Ministry of Magic, and many claimed that when he served as an advisor the Minister for Magic Unctuous Osbert was little more than his puppet.[2]


Septimus is a Latin word for "seventh." This naming may be an attempt to draw reference to the powerful magical properties of the number seven.

Behind the scenes


Notes and references

  1. These are the latest years that Septimus could have been born, which would make him 17 at some point during the ministerial term(s) of Unctuous Osbert (1789 - 1798). Presumably, however, Septimus was not as young as seventeen when he was advisor and was older.
