he In the affilation section of the infobox it says Order of the Phoenix. Do we have any proof that he was in the Order? --Freakatone 12:45, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

I couldn't find any reference to it, so I removed it. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 15:19, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

This article needs cleaned up. It's repetitive and basically nothing but quotes. Mr Norrell 09:09, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

I undid the revisions I did because they were nothing but speculation. Mr Norrell 14:13, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

Kettleburn on Pottermore?

Can we assume that Kettleburn appears on Pottermore, and Vector and Babbling do as well?

In the very last scene, we get a view of the staff table.

We can see:

  • Dumbledore in the middle

On Dumbledore's left side:

McGonagall, Snape, two unkowns (Vector and Babbling?)

on the other side: an unkown ( Sinistra taking the film into account)

  • Sprout
  • an unknown (Kettleburn?)
  • Flitwick (the only bearded teacher except Dumbledore)


  • Trelawney (She says she rarely attends the feasts)
  • Binns, (Being a ghost, we coild identify him easily)
  • Filch, Pince and Hooch (possibly because they aren´t professors. On the other hand, Hagrid isn´t one at this point either.)

We don´t have enough evidence to counclude who is who, but we can add Pottermore as a possible appearance.--Rodolphus 11:28, April 15, 2012 (UTC)

Unless they taught Alchemy that year, I would tend to conclude that that professor is Kettleburn, given that Muggle Music, Xylomancy, etc. were not creations of Rowling's and would not be included on Pottermore. -- SaXon 17:15, May 18, 2012 (UTC)

Should we add it then? The Muggle Studies teacher seems to be absent as well.--Rodolphus 13:13, May 19, 2012 (UTC)

I think it should, at the very least, be put in "behind the scenes". -- SaXon 19:12, July 9, 2012 (UTC)


I have just read the entry on the Pottermore Insider and I wondered: At which point is it indicated that Kettleburn has died?--Rodolphus (talk) 13:13, January 9, 2015 (UTC)

Kettleburn is described in the past tense: "the former Care of Magical Creatures teacher was fond of daring adventures and dangerous magical creatures". Every other Insider entry about a character's birthday is either present tense or ambiguous. It seems pretty clear to me that his death is implied, but I'd be willing to debate the point if others disagree. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 19:37, January 9, 2015 (UTC)
