Professor Albus Dumbledore is central to many aspects of the magical fantasy world of which Hogwarts is a part, a character whose storied past and canny behind-the-scenes planning helps to shape much of the story of Harry Potter. One of his most loyal companions is the brave phoenix named Fawkes, a fantastic creature whose bravery and intelligence also plays a key role in various important scenes in both the books and their blockbuster film adaptations.
