Arthur Leithan
On the contrary

Arthur enjoyed Care of Magical Creatures. He had experience working with nonmagical animals at home. His family had a small herd of sheep they used to train and work their border collies. It has been referred to, outside of wizarding circles, as “an expensive dog toy” and for the Leithans, it was more about the dogs than the sheep. Arthur had been fascinated by animals as a child, and that interest had generalized to magical creatures when he reached school. He kept what magical creatures his parents allowed him to on their farm. He particularly enjoyed it when his Care of Magical Creatures class allowed him to interact with new creatures that he couldn't keep at home. And of course, when they covered creatures he had at home, he had an advantage on grades. But still, he preferred new and, if possible, exotic.

Glumbumbles weren't something he kept at home, but they weren't particularly exotic. Still, it was new to him so he wasn't too disappointed. He was always looking to improve his skills, and getting the glumbumble to express its treacle would be a new experience. He had no idea why anyone would want to eat alihotsy leaves, but Arthur imagined it could always happen. Maybe small children get into them sometimes. Otherwise, there was no reason to want to harvest the treacle. That was why he didn't keep them on the farm.

Arthur listened politely to Professor Taransay's discussion. He turned to the student next to him and asked, “Would you like to partner up?” Receiving a positive reply, he put on gloves to hold the nettles.

          Joe shook his head automatically as he answered Nevaeh’s question, even though the gesture had no real purpose in this context. “I don’t think it’s just you,” he said. “This year is…below my... more

            “It’s not like it’s a difficult process though,” Ingrid argued back, “Sure, I wouldn’t trust the most of the potions we make, but this is putting goo in a jar. The only way to mess up is if we... more
