[Sturgis Podmore] arrested at the [Ministry] by [Eric Munch]

8/31/1995

After Voldemort’s return, Sturgis became a member of the Order during the Second Wizarding War, and was a part of the Advance Guard that safely brought Harry Potter to 12 Grimmauld Place.
On 31 August, 1995 he stood guard beside the entrance of the Department of Mysteries and was subsequently put under the Imperius Curse by the Death Eater Lucius Malfoy. Mad-Eye Moody was irritated when Podmore didn’t return his Invisibility cloak and that he did not turn up to help transport Harry Potter safely to King’s Cross Station, not knowing Sturgis had been Imperiused.

Under the control of the Death Eaters, Sturgis attempted to break into the Department of Mysteries during one of his guard shifts. However, he was discovered and arrested by Eric Munch, a Ministry official, during the attempt and was sentenced to six months in the Wizard Prison, Azkaban.

In an article announcing Sturgis Podmore’s arrest, the Daily Prophet revealed that his home is Number 2, Laburnum Gardens, Clapham.

After he was released from Azkaban, it is possible that he rejoined the Order for the remainder of the war.

Quirinus Quirrell teaches Professor of Muggle Studies

09/05/1988 - 6/22/1990

actual start date is unknown
After teaching Muggle Studies for some time, he took a year-long sabbatical in 1990 in order to “gain first-hand experience”, though in reality he had taken a ‘Grand Tour’ around the world in order to hopefully find whatever remained of Lord Voldemort after his first defeat, partly out of curiosity, partly out of that unacknowledged desire for importance from his childhood. At the very least, Quirrell fantasised that he could be the man who tracked Voldemort down, but at best, might learn skills from Voldemort that would ensure he was never laughed at again. His journey proved successful as he did indeed find Voldemort, though he was no match for the Dark Lord (even in such a weakened state) and when he realised that Quirinus had a position at Hogwarts, Voldemort took immediate possession of Quirrell, who was incapable of resisting.

Wilkie Twycross teaches Apparition

09/05/1988 - 06/21/1996

Apparition is the magical form of teleportation in the Harry Potter series. Apparition is an optional class for those in the sixth and seventh years. The lessons are taught by Wilkie Twycross, a Ministry of Magic Apparition Instructor, in Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts. In the wizarding world, performing Apparition requires a license and may only be legally performed by people over seventeen years of age. The described reason for the restriction is that Apparition is dangerous if done improperly: insufficient concentration may lead to body parts being left behind in an unfortunate side-effect known as splinching; Twycross explains this as happening when a witch or wizard is insufficiently determined. Magical enchantments on Hogwarts castle and grounds prevent Apparition and Disapparition inside the castle; however it is explained in Half-Blood Prince that these protections are temporarily relaxed within the Great Hall for short periods to permit students to practice. Students are warned, though, that they will not be able to Apparate outside of the Great Hall and that it would be unwise to try.
