Elphinstone Urquart is the husband of Professor Minerva McGonagall and the former head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. He and Minerva got married when she was twenty-three and he was forty-four. The marriage caused something of a scandal as she was a half-blood and he the head of a wealthy pureblood house. Still, they were wed and lived together happily.
The two tried for years to have children resigned themselves to lovingly caring for their many nieces and nephews. However, after nearly twenty-five years of marriage and fifteen years after giving up hope, the two had their first child: Damian Urquart. Three more children followed soon after. Elphinstone retired from the Ministry of Magic after the war with Voldemort ended. He had served as Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, Deputy Minister of Magic, and Chief Warlock of the Wizengamot in that time. For his retirement, he has moved to Hogsmeade to live in a cottage neat Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry so that Minerva may continue to teach as she prefers.
