In GF, while talking to Arthur Weasley, he didn´t pronounce policemen correctly. Can we determinate that he was pure- or half-blood?--Rodolphus 16:33, March 17, 2010 (UTC)

I don't really like how the wiki initially described him as being rude. The only time he was outright rude was when his son, the original Hogwarts champion, wasn't given so much as a mention in the Daily Prophet, whereas Harry got a whole page to himself.
In the woods, for example - some people say he was being rude and boastful. However, Rowling herself describes him as "good-natured" when looking at the Weasleys, and speaking "genially" to Harry about losing. In my opinion, he was just trying to be friendly and doing a bad job of it. And then, Cedric being his only child obviously he's going to be super-proud of him for beating the most famous wizard in the world at Quidditch. I think he was just being a father.
Just wondering, is it possible he is the male standing behind Slughorn in this image? They dress the same, have the same colour hair and skin, and both wear glasses. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 19:20, April 20, 2013 (UTC)
- I don't know; they don't really look all that alike to me. Furthermore, if I understand correctly, the photo is supposed to be from some ways a way back, when Slughorn was teaching before at Hogwarts, yet the guy in the photo looks about as old as Amos in 1994, if not older. Sorry, but I think it would be far too speculative to say that they're one and the same. ProfessorTofty (talk) 23:38, July 3, 2013 (UTC)
- Wiktionary lists "son" as "(UK, colloquial) An informal address to a friend or person of equal authority". Therefore, I don't think we can conclude anything on his age based solely on this. -- 23:21, July 10, 2013 (UTC)
