Date of death

Apparently, Brutus' portrait first appears in PoA in "The Quest of Sir Cadogan" extra feature on Disc 2 (he's not in the main film I believe). This means he must be dead by 1993/94 as all the Hogwarts portraits are of deceased individuals (per JKR - http://www.accio-quote.org/articles/2004/0804-ebf.htm). However, there is a review blurb in Quidditch Through the Ages (real) from him, and the book mentions events from 1994. In order to reconcile these facts, I suggest that either his review was for a previous edition of the book, or that he provided it as a ghost. Overall, I believe his presence in a portrait is more definitive and his death should be prior to 1993/1994 (depending on when exactly "The Quest of Sir Cadogan" takes place). --Ironyak1 (talk) 22:09, April 27, 2016 (UTC)

I´m inclined to think that the review was for a previous edition then. The only other possibility I can think of is that he stayed as a ghost, but this should only be noted in the BTS section.--Rodolphus (talk) 06:39, April 28, 2016 (UTC)
