As Played By: Ray Fearon
The Character: A courageous (albeit haughty) Centaur living in Hogwarts’ on-site forest, Firenze is more tolerant of humankind than the rest of his four-legged brethren, but that isn’t to say he doesn’t view them with a certain disdain. That said, he’s happy to take the two-legged shilling when Dumbledore invites him to become Divination teacher, much to the disgust of his hairy kin.
Key Quote: (On Professor Trelawney’s horoscopes) “That, is human nonsense. Trivial hurts, tiny human accidents, these are of no more significance than the scurryings of ants to the wide universe, and are unaffected by planetary movements.”
