Dudley Enchanted: False
“An End to Conspiracy”
Dudley “Ickle Diddykins” Dursley is just that. He isn’t a wizard or any
other magical being, and proof of that is in the Harry Potter Series. In this
Editorial I will present to you the hard proof that Dudley Dursley is not a
Shooting down the first and most ridiculous proposal is that Dudley is a
squib. The definition of a squib, according to JK Rowling, is a non-magical
being born to magical parents. We know that Vernon Dursley is a muggle and we
know that Petunia and Lily’s parents where muggles because Lilly was muggle-born.
Which means Petunia isn’t a squib either. So what we can obviously conclude
here is that Dudley’s parents aren’t wizards, and that it would be
impossible for Dudley to be a squib.
The second excuse for claiming Dudley is a magical creature is saying that he
is a wizard. First of all, Dudley hasn’t done anything magical, and if he
where a wizard he would have performed something; out of anger, out of disgust,
etc. Secondly, Dudley didn’t see the dementors when in the alley with Harry.
If he where a wizard he would have seen them, unless he was lying about not
seeing them. Now here is the knock out, “‘We have no record of any witch or
wizard living in Little Whinging, other than Harry Potter,’ said Madam Bones
at once.” This quote, directly from the bottom page 143 from Harry Potter and
the Order of the Phoenix, says that neither Vernon, Petunia, nor Dudley are
wizards or witches. Dudley, therefore, isn't a muggle-born wizard.
We do know that Aunt Petunia has more connections to the Wizarding World then
Vernon and Dudley know about. She clearly knows what Dementors are, because of
her reaction about them when Harry was giving them a description of them; but
claiming that Dudley is a magical being has no hard ground evidence to defend
