Walden Macnair is the executioner brought to Hogwarts to execute Buckbeak.

Discovered in chapter 21, Hermione's Secret

After entering Hagrid's house, Macnair asks where the 'beast' is. He looks out of Hagrid's window and sees the Hippogriff standing in the pumpkin patch. He turns back to face the room and signs the official notice of execution alongside Hagrid. Macnair is angry and confused when they leave the hut to find Buckbeak gone, as he had seen the Hippogriff tethered to the fence just moments before. He swings his axe into the fence in frustration, and tells the Committee that they should begin a search of the grounds and the Forest. He walks back into the house after Professor Dumbledore suggests the Hippogriff has flown away, cursing softly.
