Theodore Nott

Brother of Carobelle Nott. Son of Barnaby and Imogen Nott.


Theodore Nott was a pure-blood wizard who was a Slytherin student in the same year as Harry Potter at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Theodore is the son of Barnaby Nott.

Theodore is the son of Imogen Nott.

Theodore is the brother of Carobelle Nott.

He is not particularly close to his sister, Carobelle. They were sent to gender segragated muggle boarding schools when they were both very young (right after their mother’s death). They have spent little time together. Carobelle is jealous of the attention and scope of ambition that their father has for Theodore, as his heir, whereas her only function is to marry well and have children.

Theodore started at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry on 1 September, 1991 and was sorted into Slytherin house. During a Care of Magical Creatures lesson in his fifth year, he was one of only three students present who could see Thestrals, suggesting that he may have witnessed his mother’s death firsthand. He found the creatures rather distasteful as he watched one eating.

Hermione Granger pointed out Theodore’s name to Harry Potter for the first time in 1996, when Theodore was gathered in the school library with fellow Slytherins Vincent Crabbe, Gregory Goyle, and Draco Malfoy. All four boys had fathers who had recently been outed by Harry as Death Eaters in an article published in The Quibbler. Theodore was the only member of the group whose reaction to seeing Harry was not specifically noted as being negative.

While on the Hogwarts Express in 1996, Horace Slughorn waylaid Blaise Zabini and inquired after Theodore’s father. Blaise replied that Mr. Nott was a Death Eater imprisoned in Azkaban for breaking into the Department of Mysteries the previous June. Slughorn, not wanting any association with Death Eaters, wasn’t pleased and thus invited Blaise, not Theodore, to join the Slug Club.

Theodore was one of four Slytherin students who progressed to the N.E.W.T. level in Potions. During his first lesson with Professor Slughorn, he sat next to Draco, and they both sniggered when Hermione revealed that she was a Muggle-born.

Theodore is “weedy” and “stringy,” indicating that he is tall, thin, and perhaps weakly built. He was also considered to be “rabbity” in appearance by some.

Theodore is a clever, solitary boy who has never felt compelled to join “gangs,” such as the one headed by Draco. He is seen as a loner who does things by himself. Although he does seem fit to join in laughing at Hermione’s blood-status. However, even while making fun of Gryffindors, he still excels in Potions.
