Odo the Hero

Odo the Hero is the “dying wizard” about whom was written a drinking song in the Wizarding World. Part of the song goes as follows:

And Odo the hero, they bore him back home

To the place that he’d known as a lad

They laid him to rest with his hat inside out.

And his wand snapped in two, which was sad (HBP22, DH8).
