I’m a well-respected character from a very ancient house.
You’ll jump when first you see me, though I wouldn’t hurt a mouse.
If somebody had been a bit more careful when he chopped,
My social life would be improved, just when it should have stopped.
Who am I?
Answer: Nearly Headless Nick
Made by a man of floral name,
Adorned by one with royal claim—
What am I?
(Take care when things begin to bubble:
Double the help, or double trouble?)
Answer: the Potions Book, written by Libatius Borage and annotated by ‘the Half-Blood Prince’
Azkaban? Now I’m starting to worry.
Me fight in the sky over Surrey?
Last I knew, I was there,
Chatting up a young fare—
Then everything goes a bit blurry.
Who am I, and where was I—please?
Answer: Stan Shunpike, in the Knight Bus
