Tiberius Ogden was a pure-blood wizard who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1975 and was Sorted into Gryffindor House. After graduation, Tiberius eventually became a member of the Wizengamot (described as an elder member), but resigned in protest due to Cornelius Fudge's appointment of Dolores Umbridge as High Inquisitor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and the continuing campaign by the Ministry of Magic and the Daily Prophet to discredit Albus Dumbledore and Harry Potter.

Tiberius Ogden was the friend who told Professor Tofty, Harry Potter's Defence Against the Dark Arts O.W.L. Examiner, that he could perform a corporeal Patronus.

After the Ministry of Magic fell under Death Eater control, Tiberius joined the Order of the Phoenix and kept the underground organization well informed of the Ministry, and more importantly, the Death Eaters', movements, but his cover was exposed shortly before the Battle of Hogwarts after he accidentally mentioned Voldemort's name while contacting Potterwatch of rising Death Eater security around Hogwarts, forcing him to flee his house before he could be arrested. However, soon after this, Tiberius joined the rest of the Order as the traveled to Hogwarts to defend it from the Dark Order's forces and participated in the Battle of Hogwarts, duelling multiple Death Eaters, Snatchers, corrupt Ministry of Magic employees and imperiused men and women. He survived the battle and personally took down Albert Runcorn during the Battle of the Great Hall before watching Harry Potter take down Voldemort.

After the Battle, Tiberius joined the Hogwarts Staff both as the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher after Amycus Carrow was captured, tried and sentenced to Azkaban and the Head of Gryffindor after Minerva McGonnagal was evaluated to Headmistress of Hogwarts.

History[]

Early Life[]

Tiberius Odgen was born to Bob Ogden, head of the Magical Law Enforcement Squad in the 1920s, who was responsible for visiting the Gaunt Shack, as the Department of Magical Law Enforcement believed that Morfin Gaunt had not only performed magic in front of a Muggle but also accosted that Muggle, Tom Riddle Snr, and performed a dark charm on him, a confrontation which lead to the capture and imprisonment of Marvolo and Morfin Gaunt in 1929 or 1930. The Odgens were highly influential in the affairs of the Minstry, but were excluded from the Sacred Twenty-Eight both because they were a relatively new pure-blooded family and because they were perceived as "Blood-traitors" due to their support of Muggle-Born and Non-Human Beings rights. Tiberius eventually became the older brother of Melessa Odgen

School Years (1941 - 1948)[]

Tiberius began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry on 1 September, 1941 and was sorted into Gryffindor House. Little is known of Tiberius's School Years, but he achieved Exceeds Expectations or Outstandings in all his N.E.W.T.s tests. His skills eventually drew the attention of Horace Slughorn, Head of Slytherin House, who invited Tiberius, and later Melessa, to join the Slug Club, which they both accepted.

Joining the Wizengamot[]

After graduating, Tiberius joined the Wizengamot, a position of high rank. He was friendly with many of his fellow Wizengamot members, including Griselda Marchbanks, Amelia Bones and Elphias Doge and was close friends with Albus Dumbledore and Horace Slughorn. He eventually gained a nephew after his sister, Melessa, married Cyrus McLaggen and bore with his a son, Cormac Mclaggen, who Tiberius would occasionally take with him in hunting hunting Nogtails in Norfolk with the Head of the Auror Office, Rufus Scrimgeour and Bertie Higgs. He would send a photo of one of these hunts to Horace Slughorn, which lead to Cormac being invited to join the Slug Club. Tiberius would also witness the trials of multiple Death Eaters, including that of the Lestranges, Augustus Rookwood and Igor Karkaroff.

Disciplinary Hearing of Harry Potter and Resignation from the Wizengamot[]

After being summoned to a hearing after conjuring a Patronus Charm in the presence of a Muggle, Harry Potter stood on trial in front of the full Wizengamot, Tiberius included, during which he was shocked when he heard of the presence of Dementors in Little Whitney. He also expressed a happiness to see Albus Dumbledore, waving in welcome and voted in favour of clearing Harry Potter of all charges.

After Dolores Umbridge was appointed High Inquisitor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry by Cornelius Fudge, Tiberius, along with fellow Wizengamot member, Griselda Marchbanks, resigned in protest of both the Ministry's continues attempts to take control of Hogwarts and Fudge's continuing campaign to discredit Albus Dumbledore and Harry Potter. Despite this he retained his influence among the Ministry of Magic, especially in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.

Tiberius Ogden was a close friend of Professor Tofty, Harry Potter's Defence Against the Dark Arts O.W.L. Examiner, and told Tofty of Harry's extraordinary ability to perform a corporeal Patronus.

Tiberius later attended Dumbledore's funeral in memory of his old friend.

Fall of the Ministry of the Magic and Joining the Order of the Phoenix[]

After the Ministry of Magic fell under the control of Voldemort's puppet, Pius Thicknesse, Tiberius joined the Order of the Phoenix and kept the underground organization well informed of the Ministry, and more importantly, the Death Eaters', movements, but his cover was exposed shortly before the Battle of Hogwarts after he accidentally mentioned Voldemort's name while contacting Potterwatch of rising Death Eater security around Hogwarts, forcing him to flee his house before he could be arrested.

Battle of Hogwarts[]

Soon after this, however, Tiberius joined the rest of the Order as they traveled to Hogwarts to defend it from the Dark Order's forces in answer to Neville Longbottom's call to arms and participated in the Battle of Hogwarts, duelling multiple Death Eaters, Snatchers, corrupt Ministry of Magic employees and imperiused men and women. He survived the battle and personally took down Albert Runcorn during the Battle of the Great Hall before watching Harry Potter taking down Voldemort.

Joining the Hogwarts Staff[]

"I was present at Mr. Potter’s trial in 1995. He could produce a corporeal Patronus by then, and he had learned it at the age of thirteen. I also know that he helped a lot of students get ready for their O.W.L. in Defense that following school year through the group known as Dumbledore’s Army. Although You-Know-Who is gone it does not mean that we should not be prepared. There will always be evil in this world and it will be my job to prepare the students for whatever dangers they might face."
— Tiberius Odgen's Speech to the reporters of the Daily Prophet

After the Battle, Tiberius joined the Hogwarts Staff both as the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher after Amycus Carrow was captured, tried and sentenced to Azkaban and the Head of Gryffindor after Minerva McGonnagal was evaluated to Headmistress of Hogwarts. Before beginning his new job, Tiberius made a speech to the reporters of the Daily Prophet, expressing his delight at being able to return to teach at his old school. Due to Voldemort's jinx on Tiberius's job position being lifted upon it's caster's death, Tiberius taught longer than any of his predecessors after Professor Merrythought's retirement, allowing Hogwarts to keep this good teacher in the post as it moved forward towards recovery from the dark times of the Second War. From time to time, Tiberius allowed Harry Potter to give lectures on the subject, after Potter became the head of the Auror Department.
