Avito Rabota has calculated the ruble salaries of characters in a series of novels about the teenage wizard Harry Potter by English writer JK Rowling.
So, the director of the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Albus Dumbledore, would have a salary of 200 thousand rubles. And the transfiguration teacher and head of Gryffindor Minerva McGonagall would earn 104 thousand rubles a month.
The salaries of the characters of the novel “Harry Potter”:
- Auror Alastor Moody – 416 galleons or 200 thousand rubles
- Professor Minerva Minerva McGonagall – 216 Galleons or 104 thousand rubles
- National Quidditch team coach Rolanda Trick – 31,250 galleons or 15 million rubles
- Rita Skeeter, journalist for the Daily Prophet: 114 galleons or 55,000 rubles
- Employee of the Ministry of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour – 262 Galleons or 126 thousand rubles
- Hogwarts Headmaster Albus Dumbledore – 416 Galleons or 200 thousand rubles
- Forester Rubius Hagrid – 41 galleons or 20 thousand rubles
- Supply manager Argus Filch – 72 galleons or 35 thousand rubles
- Master potions professor Severus Snape – 83 galleons or 40 thousand rubles
- The seller of magic wands Garrick Ollivander – 62 galleons or 30 thousand rubles.
In the calculations, the company’s analysts used information about the activities of the characters and compared it with the average salary for similar positions in Russia.
“For example, when calculating the average salary of an Auror, the average income of a special forces officer in Russia is taken into account, and a Quidditch coach (of the national team of the magic school) takes into account the salary of the coach of the Russian soccer team”, said Avito Rabota about the methodology.
The experts also calculated the exchange rate of the universe from an interview with the author, in which Rowling explained that the galleon unit is equal to five British pounds. In terms of rubles: 1 pound – 98 rubles, therefore, 1 galleon equals 480 rubles.
Earlier, Bloomberg reported that American Warner Bros. Discovery is making a Harry Potter TV series. According to the agency, negotiations with Rowling are underway.
