Faris Spavin became the Minister of Magic in 1865. In 1877, he moved to the Hogsmeade division in order to influence and create the village that was suddenly bursting with activity.
He was used as an NPC for the first sitewide plot. Due to his direct involvement with muggleborn prosecution, he was arrested and sent to Azkaban. This led the way to the elections for Minister of Magic in 1881.
