"I decree that Alex Russo is officially the Russo family wizard"
―Professor Crumbs[src]

Professor Crumbs is the former headmaster of the wizard school, WizTech. He is believed to be approximately 3 thousands old. He is a wise and powerful wizard and one who Justin admires.


Professor Crumb's wand has a very thin hourglass shaped handle and a long straight shaft with bumps going up the shaft. As the bumps go up the shaft the bumps go from big to small. It is said to be made of willow and is very similar to Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter.

Magical Powers and abilities

Professor Crumbs is a very old, experienced and a powerful Wizard that gained and developed powers and magic spells over his hundred-year existence. Amongst his many powers we can count:

  • Spellcasting: Crumbs most basic power which allows him to cause magical actions to gain temporary powers.
    • Molecular Manipulation: Crumbs is capable of transform objects into other things and create objects out of apparently thin air.
    • Power Control: Crumbs' mastery of this power is superb. He could remove Alex of her wizardly powers and grant Full Wizardry to Justin.
    • Illusionism: Crumbs was capable of creating the illusion that the US government actually learned about the Russos wizarding heritage. Though it seems that this power is limited to create people and apparently don't include the notion of space.
    • Teleport: Crumbs used this power extensively to travel from place to place.
  • Knowledge over magic: Not an actual power by itself, the knowledge of arcane lore allowed Crumbs to better use his magical powers and skills.
  • Resistance to magically induced morality: Professor Crumbs posses resistance to Gorog's (and possibly to all Angels) powers to manipulate good and evil in a person.


  • Plastic: As with all Wizards, Crumbs's powers are useless against plastic.
  • Felix's all-powerful wand: Despite his magical potency, Crumbs was incapable of dispelling the spell cast by Felix because of Felix's all-powerful wand.
