Professor Snape

Professor Snape


The grumpy Potions Master, Professor Snape, doesn't seem much fun – but stick around, this is a complicated character! In Harry's first year, Professor Snape boasts about the 'subtle science and exact art of potion-making' – and mostly dwells in the dungeons being mean to the students (apart from the Slytherins, as he just so happens to be their Head of House!).

Teaching Potions was not Snape's first choice - he has applied for the post of Defence Against the Dark Arts professor many times...
