Nicolas and Perenelle Flamel

Nicolas Flamel (c. 1327 - c. 1992) was a well-known alchemist and only known maker of the Philosopher's Stone, a legendary substance with incredible powers. He was a close friend of, and partner with, former Hogwarts School Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore. He owed his inordinate age to the Elixir of Life which he and his wife, Perenelle, created using the Stone. They were aged six hundred sixty-five and six hundred fifty-eight, respectively, at their times of death.

Flamel is noted as an alchemist of considerable talent and as an opera-lover. It is said he enjoyed his later years living a quiet life in Devon. Although it is clear that he used the Elixir to greatly extend his life, it is known that he used the Stone's powers to make himself greatly wealthy, as the Stone is also capable of turning any metal into gold.

Perenelle Flamel (c. 1333 - c. 1992) was the wife of famous philosopher and alchemist, Nicolas Flamel, who was known for his works on the Philosopher's Stone. Perenelle and her husband drank the Elixir of Life produced by the stone, and were immortal, until the stone was destroyed, after which she and Nicolas would later die in the following year. She died at the age of six hundred and fifty-eight years. She had a very strong friendship with Albus Dumbledore like her husband.
