A tall, bearded wizard who works for the Ministry of Magic. Unwittingly, he played a part in Harry, Ron, and Hermione’s infiltration of the Ministry when Hermione gave him a Nosebleed Nougat, convinced him to go home, and took some of his hairs to add to Polyjuice Potion for Harry (DH12). While using Polyjuice Potion to impersonate Albert, Harry discovered that he was someone Mr. Weasley deeply disliked.
Albert was turning on “Mudbloods” and reporting them to the Ministry (DH13). Runcorn turned in Dirk Cresswell, the Ministry's Head Goblin Liaison.
Albert is seen in both Deathly Hallows the novel and Deathly Hallows Part I.
