Professor Horace Slughorn
Horace Slughorn is an old colleague of Headmaster Albus Dumbledore. He is a short man. His feet does not touch the floor when he is seated. The gold buttons on his waistcoat threaten to pop at any moment due to the large size of his stomach. His bald head shines in the candlelight.
Professor Horace Slughorn is the new Potions teacher at Hogwarts. Harry Potter helps Albus Dumbledore convince Slughorn to come out of retirement and teach again. This happens in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
Harry Potter receives the second-hand Potions book from him. The book's former owner is "the Half-Blood Prince."
Slughorn loves his comforts. Wines, candies and good food are a must for him. Crystalized pineapple is his favorite candy. A box is usually not far from his side.
His apartment contains furniture with plump, comfy cushions. Silk curtains drape the windows. Foot stools to prop up his small feet are everywhere. Nothing, but the best for Horace Slughorn.
Professor Slughorn is a collector. He collects people, students with the capabilities to achieve greatness after leaving Hogwarts. These students are members of his 'Slug Club.' Harry, Neville Longbottom and Ginny Weasley are some of the students he is interested in as members of his club.
It is these former members who supply him with his creature comforts. A case of wine from one student. A hamper of food from another. Oh, a pair of tickets to the Quidditch World Cup!
