The captain and Keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch team. A seventh-year, Wood has spent the last several years putting together a skilled and competent team and he desperately wants to win the Quidditch Cup during his final year at Hogwarts. He's obsessive about practicing and about Quidditch theory; he often finds Harry in the hallways and talks strategy to him. He's known for being overenthusiastic and intense, which makes him a prime target for Fred and George's good-natured teasing.
