Professor Vulpus[2] was a wizard. It is unknown if he was a Muggle-born, half-blood or pure blood.



Professor Vulpus was appointed as Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry sometime before Armando Dippet.


After his death, his portrait was hung in the Headmaster's office in order to give advice to the current Head.[3]


  • The name Vulpus may come from Vulpes, the Latin word for "fox".


Notes and references

  1. J.K. Rowling stated at the Edinburgh Book Festival on 15 August 2014 (source) that all portraits at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are of deceased individuals. Thus, Vulpus must have died sometime in or before 1992, given his portrait's appearance in the Headmaster's office in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
