Zachary Stanton is the Chief of Roanoke's Auror Authority. He is tall and has narrow shoulders, cold blue eyes, and long white-blond hair.
In the Spring of 2009, he was impersonated (using Polyjuice Potion) by both Abraham Thorn and an unnamed confidant of Thorn's. Thorn pretended to be Stanton to attend the New Roanoke Spring Cotillion and dance with his daughter, Alexandra Quick. His ally, also in the guise of Stanton, later stood guard while Thorn met with his son, Maximilian King, at the Thorn family crypt on Croatoa.
His relation, if any, to the family of Leah Stanton is currently unknown.
Zachary is a short form of Zechariah, a name shared with a Hebrew prophet.
