Since the Lexicon is playing up on me, I'm hoping that some of you can help me out with a few things.

~ Do we know when Mad-Eye Moody retired?
~ The Auror Department is a division of the Department for Magical Law Enforcement, correct? Alastor was never head of the Auror department, was he? And who would have been head of the Auror and Magical Law Enforcement departments around the time Moody retired? (If we don't know, do you have any ideas of possibilities?)
~ Do we know about any of the wacky things he did in his later years as an Auror?
~ Do we know when/how he got any of his scars or injuries?
~ (Edit to add: ) The names of any Aurors who might have been fairly new to the job around the time of Moody's retirement would be really helpful, too.

I think that a lot of that stuff has never been specified by JKR, but I just want to make sure I don't put any big canon errors in my fic, and maybe I'll even find some useful ideas.

Thanks to anyone who can help!
