- —Fox to Students
Professor Oreyn B. Fox (b. January 27, 1959) Order of Merlin, First Class, Three-time Soft Shoe Champion and member of the Dark Force Defence League, was a half-blood wizard and later, a Professor at Hogwarts School For Witchcraft and Wizardry. He was Potions Master for many years and for a short time Head of the Transfiguration Department, during which he wrote a widely accepted book on the mysteries of nothing titled Nothing about Nothing, before becoming the Defense Against The Dark Arts Professor. In the school year of 2020 - 2021, Fox was appointed the role and title of Deputy Headmaster. Later in that same year Fox was the acting Headmaster in Hannah Fischer's temporary absence. Professor Fox served on the International Confederation of Wizards (?) for a brief period, due to his constant traveling to foreign nations, and knack for finding himself in the thick of what he called "adventure". He was a notable member of the Dark Force Defence League, and well-known for his involvement during the Troll Rampage at Mount Malaku, invention of several potions, and skill at appearing at just the right moment. Oreyn has also pinned several books, most notably his regarded book, Nothing about Nothing and The Musings of Nonsensical Musings. After his involvement in the Troll Rampage at Mount Malaku, Oreyn also accompanied friend, Oswalt Digby on several expeditions to South and Central America, and later after Digby found himself cursed during the Golden Frog incident, was able to stop Digby from harming students and break the curse upon him. Oreyn has been a leading role in the hunt and thwarting of the mysterious "Shadow", a dark wizard who has exclusively caused trouble in recent years at Hogwarts in an attempt to gain control of the mythical Heart of Four. Oreyn was vital in aiding the Hag of Crowscreep and is allegedly in contact with her after the Midnight Duel that took place in June of 2022 in Hogsmeade. When Headmistress Hannah Fischer, overtaken with a deep and deadly curse placed upon her by none other than Zimelda Zemeckis, Oreyn was faced with the difficult choice to remain at Hogwarts, or search for the cure to save her. Feeling that Fischer must be saved, Oreyn went in search of Zemeckis, believing that she was the key ingredient needed. Oreyn returned along side Zemeckis towards the end of the 2022-2023 school year, finding the school had been taken over by Judy Dorchester and managed to infiltrate the castle and cure Fischer. Moments after Dorchester's defeat by the hand of Hannah Fischer, Oreyn stowed away with a small group into the newly discovered Heart of Four, and saw the defeat of the Shadow. Oreyn Fox held the position of Deputy Headmaster as well as being Professor for Defence Against the Dark Arts. He has held various teaching positions at Hogwarts over the years besides Defence Against the Dark Arts, including Potions, Transfiguration, History of Magic, Study for Ancient Runes, as well as Alchemy for a time. When Hannah Fischer resigned as Headmistress and was voted to be the next Minister for Magic, It was unanimously voted by the board that Oreyn Fox would succeed Fischer as Headmaster, the role he serves as currently.
There are currently two portraits of Oreyn Fox hung at Hogwarts.
