Animagus Creatures

Adrian Tutley

Adrian Tutley

Adrian Tutley was a wizard who lodged a complaint with the International Confederation of Wizards about the Uagadou School Animagi Team. Their performance of “synchronized transforming” astounded the crowd attending an International Symposium of Animagi (Pm: Uagadou). Many older wizards, including Mr. Tutley, “felt threatened by fourteen-year-olds who could turn at will into elephants and cheetahs.” Adrian Tutley was himself an Animagus who could transform into a gerbil (Pm: Uagadou).

While the name reveals little, the fact that Adrian turns into a gerbil, a tiny nervous rodent, suggests something about his personality. It is not surprising that he was frightened by young teenagers turning into ferocious beasts.

    He must have thought his ability was super cool and then “some bully, abusive, smartass, snot-nosed brats set the bar too high for hard-working wizards like him waaaaaaaaah!!!!!!”

    Beside being scared, he and the other wizards who felt “threatened” were simply jealous because they could never do what the kids did. In fact, his little “outraged” complaint reminds me of Uncle Vernon. Uncle Vernon would totally do something like that if someone were better than him at selling drills (the skill he takes the most pride in).

    Talk about NPD and Tall Poppy Syndrome.
