Ekrizdis is an antagonist in the Harry Potter universe. He was an immensely evil wizard who lived in the 15th century in medieval Britain.


Ekirzdis was of unknown origin (possibly Greek though, given that early dark magic was practiced in ancient Greece, and given the sounding of his name) who roamed the world before settling in an ancient island in the stormy North Sea, East of Britain. The island was all alone in the choppy sea, a perfect location for Ekrizdis' dark desires.

By unknown means, he lured Muggle sailors to his island, then would capture them, torture them, and then he would finally kill them. All through no apparent reason other than an insatiable bloodlust and a possible insanity.

Ekirzdis died long before the novels began, but the Ministry found his Island, and entered it, finding the "least frightening" things inside were Dementors. It is unknown what was so scary the Ministry refused to speak of it, but it is possible Ekrizdis made furniture out of his victims bones or other such gruesome acts, which is highly likely given he was insane.


Not much is known about the Dark Wizard Ekirzdis, not even his nationality because countries refused to acknowledge him as one of their own. One thing is certain however. Unlike Gellert Grindelwald or Lord Voldemort, who both had plans and goals, Ekrizdis had neither. His only drive in life was to inflict as much pain and suffering onto others as possible. His experiments and methods of torture were so twisted and extreme, it's believed that the misery and despair caused by them is what brought Dementors into existence. They were also so horrific in nature, that those sent by the Ministry to make first contact with his dreaded island keep refused to speak about what they saw.

Magical abilities

  • Torture Methodology: Ekrizdis was able to torture his victims through unknown means.
  • Concealment charm: Ekrizdis made his entire Island home invisible and unchartable on a map, regardless of it being a Muggle or wizard map.


  • He was only mentioned on the official Harry Potter website "Pottermore".
  • Some Harry Potter readers believe Ekrizdis to be the creator of the Dementors.
