I'm not sure exactly where the right place to be posting this thread is, so if there is a better spot, let me know.

Anyway, JKR always had such creative DADA professors. I'm writing a canon prequel series from the point of view of Sirius, and I can't for the life of me come up with any interesting professors. (My books are slightly serious and get sort of dark, just like the HP books.)

I like characters with backstories and who might be involved in the main plot somehow.

Do you have ideas for professors you've never used? Thanks!
