Carl Hopkins was a Gryffindor[1] student who began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in either 1990 or 1991.[2]

During the 1996–1997 school year, he took N.E.W.T.-level Potions, as he someday hoped to be an Auror.[1] He confessed to Harry Potter, in the year 1996-1997, that he would like a new broom. He also admits it is a disaster in Potions. At year end it can be seen walking in the Entrance Courtyard, near Scott Ancrum.

He may have been related to Hufflepuff student Wayne Hopkins.


The name "Carl" is the German form of Charles. Two noteworthy bearers of the name were the German mathematician Carl Gauss, who made contributions to number theory and algebra as well as physics and astronomy, and the Swiss psychologist Carl Jung, who founded analytical psychology. It was imported to America in the 19th century by German immigrants.


Notes and referencesEdit

  1. 1.0 1.1 Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (video game)
  2. In the Half-Blood Prince video game for Nintendo DS, Carl tells Harry Potter "I'm taking my N.E.W.T. Potions this term," indicating that he was a sixth or seventh year at that point, and thus Sorted in 1990 or 1991, as the game is set during the 1996–1997 term.
