Argus Filch

Argus Filch


Argus Filch is the grumpy caretaker of Hogwarts. He is always creeping around trying to find students out of bed after-hours, with the help of his curious cat, Mrs Norris. And it's not just Hogwarts students who stay clear of Filch – Hagrid has a few opinions about him too! While Filch absolutely loves getting students into trouble – there is one thing at Hogwarts he hates more – the mischievous ways of Peeves the Poltergeist, who delights in making life as messy as possible for the caretaker. We'd feel bad for him but...

Filch knows the secret passageways of Hogwarts better than anyone (apart from maybe Fred and George!).
