Moaning Myrtle

“No one wants to upset me! That’s a good one! My life was nothing but misery at this place and now people come along ruining my death!”

Moaning Myrtle haunts the girls’ toilets on the first floor, howling and wailing and being generally melodramatic. After her sudden and mysterious death, she chose to use her after-life to haunt anyone who had laughed at her glasses.

Hogwarts House Ghosts

“About twenty ghosts had just streamed through the back wall, pearly-white and slightly transparent…”

After a thousand years of magical inhabitation, Hogwarts is the most heavily haunted building in Britain. Among the various has-beens of Hogwarts, there are four ghosts who have the distinction of representing each of the school houses.

The Hogwarts Founders

“Bold Gryffindor, from wild moor,
Fair Ravenclaw, from glen,
Sweet Hufflepuff, from valley broad,
Shrewd Slytherin, from fen”

The renowned founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Over a thousand years ago, Rowena Ravenclaw dreamt of following a warted hog to a mountainside loch. The rest as they say, is history…

The Next Generation of Malfoys

“So that’s little Scorpius.”

Draco, Astoria and their little pride and joy, Scorpius Hyperion. The bloodline has continued with Draco marrying into another of the “Sacred Twenty-Eight” pureblood families.

Dolores Umbridge

“What Cornelius doesn’t know won’t hurt him.”

Dolores Jane Umbridge is a power-hungry Ministry of Magic official. Deeply prejudiced, controlling and sadistic, Umbridge is a nightmare in pink bows, frills and flounces. Her hobbies include collecting the ‘Frolicsome Feline’ ornamental plate range and inventing instruments of torture.

Rare few Ravenclaws

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit & learning
Will always find their kind.

Padma Patil.

Handful of Hufflepuffs

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just & loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil.

Ernie Macmillan, Hannah Abbott, Susan Bones and Justin Finch-Fletchley.

Slytherin Squad

Or perhaps in Slytherin
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.

Draco Malfoy, Pansy Parkinson, Vincent Crabbe, Gregory Goyle, Blaise Zabini and Millicent Bulstrode.

Gryffindor Gang

You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve & chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart.

Neville Longbottom, Lavender Brown, Parvati Patil, Dean Thomas and Seamus Finnigan.

Tina Goldstein

“Mr. Scamander, do you know anything about the wizarding community in America?”

A self-styled super sleuth and sometime auror, Tina gets embroiled in adventures with Newt Scamander. Tina works in the magical law enforcement branch of MACUSA. Even when she’s suspended from the investigative team, she can’t resist doing a little bit of undercover work of her own…

Queenie Goldstein

“Aw, don’t worry, honey. Most guys think what you was thinking, first time they see me.”

Queenie is the younger of the two Goldstein sisters. Although she works at MACUSA along with Tina, she admits she’s not much of a career girl. Queenie is beautiful, vivacious, and a highly accomplished Legilimens… yes, she knows what you’re thinking.

Teddy & Victoire

“Our Teddy! Teddy Lupin! Snogging our Victoire! Our cousin!”

Teddy, “a lanky half-werewolf with bright blue hair” and “beautiful, blonde” Victoire set tongues wagging when they got together in their teens. It’s hard to tell who was more nosey – Victoire’s younger cousin James or Rita Skeeter in her infamous gossip column. The Weasley/Potter clan remain on tenterhooks to see whether they’ll make it official and Teddy “really will be part of the family”.
