Even months later, the pimples were still visible (HBP7).

Former headmaster of Hogwarts whose portrait now hangs in the headmaster's office. Everard is particularly famous and as a result his portrait hangs in many famous wizarding institutions, including the Ministry of Magic. Everard is a sallow-faced wizard with a short black fringe (OP22).
Note: 'Everard' is probably a first name, since Dumbledore refers to other former Headmasters by their first names ('Phineas,' 'Dilys').
