Back Story: Filius grew up in the dwarf community with occasional visits from his father over the years. He was always aware of his magical background and because dwarfs are not bound to the same restrictions around Muggles he was able to gain a bit of magical knowledge before being accepted into Hogwarts in 1908. His time at Hogwarts was uneventful, though he was a member of the Dueling Club. Being a Ravenclaw he earned nothing below an A (ugh, Care of Magical Creatures) in any of his coursework. He is one of the few students in the history of the school to earn straight O's in Charms for the entire seven year stint. After graduating in 1915, Filius joined a local Dueling Club and traveled the world competing. While he won most of his regional tournaments, he never ranked any higher in the world standings than second. After ten years on the circuit he decided to move on to something else. He spent a few years working a low level position within the Ministry before noting an opening at Hogwarts for a Charms teacher. He interviewed with Headmaster Dippet in 1939 and was granted the position. Filius quickly came to love his students, even an often hard to understand Tom Ridde. His drive to do what is best for all students granted him the position of Ravenclaw Head of House in the early 1970's.
