Minerva McGonagall

Minerva McGonagall
Minerva McGonagall is 
Deputy Headmistress, head of Gryffindor House, Transfiguration professor, and later Headmistress at Hogwarts, where she began teaching in December 1956. She is first introduced in the opening chapter of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, when she meets Dumbledore a the home of Harry Potter's aunt and uncle, Vernon and Petunia Dursley. McGonagall is described as a tall, rather severe-looking woman, with black hair typically drawn into a tight bun. She wears emerald green robes, a pointed hat, and always has a very prim expression. She speaks with a slight Scottish accent. She is, according to Rowling, a sprightly 70-year-old. Harry's immediate impression of her is of someone who is not to be crossed...
