Harry Potter Character - Minerva McGonagall

Minerva McGonagall (born October 4, 1925) is a fictional character in the Harry Potter series of novels by J. K. Rowling. At the beginning of the stories she is deputy Headmistress at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, head of Gryffindor House, and Transfiguration teacher, which she began teaching in December of 1956. McGonagall considers Transfiguration to be the most complex and difficult branch of magic.
McGonagall has black hair, typically drawn into a tight bun. She wears emerald green robes, and always a very prim expression. She is, according to Rowling, a "sprightly" 70 years old. She wears square glasses which match the markings around the eyes of her tabby cat form (McGonagall is an Animagus, a witch or wizard who is able to transform into an amimal at will). She also has a fondness for tartan patterns, apparently derived from a Scottish heritage; even her dressing gown and biscuit tin have tartan patterns. Stern, snappy, and generally reserved, Professor McGonagall has nonetheless been shown to have in mind the best interests of the students at Hogwarts, her wards in Gryffindor, and Harry himself. McGonagall was also been one of Albus Dumbledore's staunchest supporters and is still a member of the Order of the Phoenix. She was the first Animagus introduced in the series.
Her given name comes from Minerva, the Roman goddess of wisdom (a name that suits Professor McGonagall very well). Her surname comes from that of a 19th century Dundee eccentric, William Topaz McGonagall. He is often regarded as the worst poet in the history of the English language.
