Gregory Marku, The Apprentice Wizard, (October 20, 1931) is a very strong and wise wizard who was one of Albus Dumbledore's best and loyal friends. He is part of the Order of the Phoenix and the Order of Merlin and was a professor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as the professor of the Defence Against the Dark Arts and is now an Auror for the Ministry of Magic. He is a rare owner of a phoenix, which shows how strong his relationship was with Albus Dumbledore as they have a love for phoenix's. He was also a big help at the Battle of Hogwarts as he fought many Death Eaters and fought alongside Minerva McGonagall, Horace Slughorn and Kingsley Shacklebolt against Voldemort. A year after the Battle of Hogwarts in 1999, Gregory became the Head of the Auror Office until 2007 when he decided to only be an Auror.
Gregory Marku is a tall and thin man with long white hair. He has brown eyes. He also has rather large ears. His nose is medium sized, but also a little large. He has pretty big hands and long finger and he has pretty large feet. His long fingers are skilled with holding a wand.
He wears robes of a variety of colors and the colors that he usually wears are white, maroon, blue, light blue, orange, purple and crimson red. He also wears a wizard hat that also comes in many colors.
Gregory's patronus is a toad. You might think a toad is a humiliating patronus, but this patronus is far from a joke. Its wisdom surpasses all, giving it a tactical advantage. And by using its massive and adhesive tongue it spits it out at the enemy and sucks it in, making Gregory's nemesis’s come to him. Then subsequently swallows them... thus absorbing their power and defeating the enemy.
