Professor Swoopstikes was a wizard and a former Potions Master at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He was also an entomologist, with a vast knowledge of magical insects.
Professor Swoopstikes was a fan of the Tutshill Tornados Quidditch team.
A portrait of Professor Swoopstikes was hung in the Tracery Hall at Hogwarts Castle, depicting him among his vast insect colection, holding a magnifying glass on one hand and a Billywig on the other.
- To "swoop" is to "move rapidly downward through the air", perhaps an indication towards entomology.
- A "stike" is a stanza, and therefore the plural form of stike, "stikes", refers to multiple stanzas.
