Burdock Muldoon was Chief of Wizard’s Council from 1448 to 1450.
Other canon notes and references
Muldoon tried to define the difference between a "being" and a "beast." He decreed that any creature that had two legs was a "being," and therefore deserving of better representation and treatment. When he called a summit meeting to discuss it, however, the Goblins mocked him by bringing other two-legged creatures such as destructive trolls and hags, mischievous fairies and pixies, and loud disruptive birds such as Diricawls and Fwoopers. After that, Muldoon gave up. (FB)
Burdock = a large flowering weed, something like a thistle, with seeds that stick to clothing and animal fur. In fact, the tiny hooks on seeds were the basis for the invention of velcro. The roots are used in a popular drink in the U.K. called Dandelion and Burdock.
The surname "Muldoon" means "hill-fort" and is common in Ireland and Scotland.
