The Harry Potter Canon

Former headmaster of Hogwarts (c. 1942), who was totally taken in by Tom Riddle. Dippet’s portrait hangs in Dumbledore’s office (OP37). In life, he was nearly bald and somewhat feeble (CS13).

Tom Riddle, when he had finished school, asked Dippet if he could stay on as a teacher, but Dippet told him that at eighteen he was too young (HBP20).

During Dippet’s tenure as Head, an infamous performance of a pantomime of The Fountain of Fair Fortune nearly burned down the Great Hall (TBB/FFF).

Rita Skeeter wrote a tell-all biography of Dippet entitled Armando Dippet: Master or Moron? (DH13).
