Cornelius Fudge was the Minister for Magic until the Second War officially began. His successor is Rufus Scrimgeour.

Before becoming Minister, Fudge was Head of the Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes. In that capacity, he was the first to arrive at the crime scene after Peter Pettigrew killed twelve Muggles and forged his death; the capture of Sirius Black ensued, and the latter was sent to Azkaban without a trial.

He is an overly cautious, often cowardly man, who would rather discredit Albus Dumbledore than believe Lord Voldemort had returned. Before Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, however, he and Dumbledore were somewhat close; Hagrid called him a 'bungler', as he pelted the Hogwarts' Headmaster with owls every morning, asking for advice (PS5). Fudge was all too eager to forgive Harry Potter when Marjorie Dursley was accidentally enlarged.

Fudge then spoke to Harry at the Leaky Cauldron, fretting over his safety since Sirius Black, a reportedly dangerous fugitive, had escaped from Azkaban.

He harbours prejudice against werewolves and giants; Fudge specifically doubted the trustworthiness of both Rubeus Hagrid and Remus Lupin on different occasions.
