Urquhart is a wizard who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where he was Sorted into Slytherin House. He was made captain of the Slytherin Quidditch Team, taking over from Montague in 1996/1997 and playing the position of Chaser. He doesn't seem to have played on the Quidditch team before that year. He brought in new Chaser Vaisey, but kept the Keeper, Seeker and Beaters of the previous year. He was unable to lead the team to victory that year, the Gryffindor team winning the Quidditch Cup instead.
