Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Walden Macnair
|Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter - Character|
Walden Macnair is a tall, strapping wizard, relatively young, with a thin black moustache.
Role in the Books
Macnair is the designated executioner for the Committee for the Disposal of Dangerous Creatures, a committee in the Ministry of Magic. He is brought to Hogwarts School to execute Buckbeak.
Lord Voldemort, on his return from near-death, tells Macnair that he will soon have wizards to kill. There being no other Macnairs mentioned to date, we can assume that this is the same Macnair to whom we have already been introduced.
Macnair served as one of Lord Voldemort's envoys to the Giants, and it seems he helped to persuade them to join forces with the Death Eaters. He also fought in the battle in the Department of Mysteries, and was wounded by Neville Longbottom when Neville poked Hermione Granger's wand through the eyehole in his Death Eater mask.
