"We Cranes don't act like fools. You act like a fool with all that comedy you're playing with that Mudblood girl. Have I taught you nothing? We must uphold our legacy, lest we fall to impurity. And over my dead body will I see my family be reduced to that."
Hannibal Crane, Earl of Blackmoor was a wealthy British wizard born into the ancient House of Crane, the Earl of Blackmoor, and the father of Professor Donovar Crane. He is remembered by Donovar as a radical, stern and strict, but loving parent.
