In "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" of J.K Rowlling there is sentence:

“Now, Professor Dumbledore has granted me permission to start this little dueling club, to train you all in case you ever need to defend yourselves as I myself have done on countless occasions — for full details, see my published works.

What is the meaning of the "ever" in this context?
