Arcturus Black (19011991) was a pure-blood wizard and member of the noble House of Black.

Biography Edit

He was born in 1901 as the eldest son of Sirius Black II and his wife Hesper Gamp, and was the brother of Lycoris and Regulus I.

He married a witch named Melania Macmillan, who bore him a daughter Lucretia and son Orion.

Arcturus was the grandfather of Sirius and Regulus.

He died in 1991 and had outlived his father, mother, brother, sister, son (second child), daughter-in-law, and second grandson.

EtymologyEdit

Arcturus is the name of the brightest star in the constellation Boötes. Its name derives from Ancient Greek Αρκτοῦρος, meaning "bear guard"; this refers to the story in Greek mythology that Zeus placed Arcturus in the sky to look after Arcas and Callisto, who were turned into bears and then into the constellations Ursa Major and Ursa Minor to protect them from Hera's wrath.
