were is it stated he is an Auror I don't recall reading it ( 03:00, 25 November 2007 (UTC))

I do not recall Doge being identified as an Auror could a source for this information be provided? NJZimmermann 22:23, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

I don't know where the idea came from, either. I have removed references to him being an Auror, pending canon information. Magi COS 04:06, 13 June 2009 (UTC)


He was a school friend of Albus Dumbledore who was a Gryffindor. But, was Elphias one, too?

--Rodolphus 08:10, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

That's never specifically stated, but I really don't think Elphias could have gained his reputation of being "Dumbledore's dimwitted sidekick" unless they were on the same house.Yaquez 16:11, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Dragon Pox

The article currently states that he caught Dragon Pox AFTER he started Hogwarts, but I seem to remember something in DH indicating that he caught the disease BEFORE starting Hogwarts. Can anyone confirm this? --DigificWriter

Yes, that is true, he did have it before he came to hogwarts.-Matoro183 (Talk) 21:26, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

About his work and birthday

I just read Deathly hallows and it doesn't say anything about him being an auror, not even working for the ministry. He's just seen in the fifth book as part of the advance guard and then at Bill's wedding, and I don't remember JK saying in any interview that Doge was an auror, if somebody has information on this subject please submit it, if not then the article should be corrected, don't you think? and I think he probably was born the same year Dumbledore was right? since they both attended hogwarts at the same time? thanks

Not having the book in front of me, I don't have a quote, but I know he was present at the Wizengamot. There should be more about his job in the eulogy he wrote for Dumbledore. 14:13, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
I've removed the part about him being an Auror. There is no canon information about that, as far as I am aware. On the other hand, I have added that he was a jurist (ie. judge or legal academic), since he was a member of the Wizengamot. Magi COS 04:09, 13 June 2009 (UTC)



Elphias during the battle.

with this picture, we can say that Elphias participated in the battle of hogwarts?Pol 871 18:47, July 21, 2010 (UTC)

If the image is canonical and shows the battle, yes we can.--Rodolphus 09:45, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, is a canonical image, because come from the last spot-trailer.Pol 871 10:20, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

I´ve added it.--Rodolphus 10:25, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

Hi-res pic of Doge: 20:54, April 5, 2011

Sorry to disagree, but that individual fighting in the Battle of Hogwarts does not seem like Ryall playing Doge. You can see in Deathly Hallows part 1 that Doge only has a few sparse white hairs on the sides of his head, and the top of his head completely bald (with just a couple of white hairs). The Battle of Hogwarts individual has clearly much more hair than Doge. Also, their faces are completely unlike each other. Also, the clothing: for all of Doge's previous appearances he was featured in that weird-looking robe; I wouldn't think they would be consistent with Order of the Phoenix in Deathly Hallows 1, but change his look completely in Deathly Hallows 2. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 00:21, May 21, 2011 (UTC)
If there are no objections, I will remove the information I proved wrong out of this article. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 16:39, June 10, 2011 (UTC)

I saw this picture above in the autograph of David Ryall. Here is the source: I don't know if this source is good enough to say that this man is Elphias Doge, but I thought I put the news here to the page, then others can decide. Harry granger 22:31, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

We should say he died when his actor died because he was getting to an unrealistically old age.1234567Dan (talk) 14:01, July 31, 2015 (UTC)

I  know, but 133 is a bit over the top.
