"And Volkov and Vulchanov had better get back on those brooms. . . yes. . . there they go. . ."
-- Ludo Bagman's commentary during the 1994 Quidditch World Cup (GF8)


Quidditch player, Beater for the Bulgarian National Team (1994).

Along with fellow Bulgarian Beater Vulchanov, Volkov was on the Bulgarian side that lost the 1994 Quidditch World Cup final against Ireland. His other teammates were Viktor Krum as Seeker, Dimitrov, Ivanova and Levski (Chasers), and Zograf the Keeper (GF8). The events of the tournament were overshadowed by the chaos following the appearance of the Dark Mark (GF9, Pm).

He and Vulchanov are considered "legendary" by the time of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup and are thought to be the best pair of Beaters in living memory (Pm).


Aggressive and legendary beating skills



Volkov derives from the Russian word volk meaning "wolf" (Behind the Name).
