Pansy Parkinson is a fictional character from the Harry Potter Universe.


[edit] Background

Pansy Parkinson is a most likely Pure-Blood witch who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was sorted into Slytherin House. She was not a very kind person and often teased and insulted almost anybody outside of Slytherin House. She fawned over her fellow housemate, Draco Malfoy, was a member of his gang, and possibly developed a romantic relationship with him. She joined the Inquisitorial Squad in her fifth year, and, in fear, tried to turn Harry Potter over to Lord Voldemort. Pansy and Draco did not continue their relationship as the latter eventually married Astoria Greengrass.

[edit] History

[edit] The Philosopher's Stone

In the first book, Pansy entered her first year at Hogwarts and was no doubt sorted into Slytherin. She was dorm-mates with Milicent Bulstrode, Daphne Greengrass, Tracey Davis, and another Slytherin girl, and acted very leader-like towards them. She became close with Draco Malfoy, Vincent Crabbe, and Gregory Goyle, and joined their gang.

Pansy tended to bully many other students in her year, mostly anybody outside of her House. During the first years' first Flying class, she teased Parvati Patil for defending fellow housemate Neville Longbottom, saying that she never knew she had a soft spot for fat crybabies, which may imply that Pansy was familiar with the Patils before having attended Hogwarts.

[edit] The Chamber of Secrets

Pansy did not do much in her second year, which was the year that the Chamber of Secrets re-opened and the Heir of Slytherin was out to get Muggle-borns. She continued to tease and bully others, which were the only times she was mostly seen in the book.

[edit] The Prisoner of Azkaban

Pansy entered her third year in the Prisoner of Azkaban and continued her mean streak. She and the rest of her gang—Draco Malfoy, Vincent Crabbe, Gregory Goyle—teased Harry Potter after fainting on the Hogwarts Express from Dementors and took much joy in it. During one Care of Magical Creatures class, Draco was attacked by the hippogriff, Buckbeack, and Pansy insisted on escorting Draco to the hospital wing. After the attack, she fawned over Draco's injury and asked if it hurt terribly. She seemed to dislike Rubeus Hagrid, professor of Care of Magical Creatures, as did many other Slytherins.

[edit] The Goblet of Fire

In Pansy's fourth year, the Triwizard Tournament would be held at Hogwarts. Because of this, famous Daily Prophet journalist Rita Skeeter came to Hogwarts to get info on the champions, and Pansy helped in spilling false information about Harry Potter, the fourth champion, Hermione Granger, supposed girlfriend of Harry, and Rubeus Hagrid, the half-giant Care of Magical Creatures professor. Pansy seemed highly amused when Hermione received a hex—which was from Draco Malfoy, who was hoping to hit Harry—that enlarged her front teeth and had to go to the hospital wing. Pansy was invited to the Yule Ball by Draco, and by then, the two may have developed a romantic relationship with each other, but it is unconfirmed. She seemed outraged when she saw Hermione Granger going to the dance with Viktor Krum, and did not seem to feel the same way about the article on how great Hermione looked at the Yule Ball.

[edit] The Order of the Phoenix

Pansy, along with Draco Malfoy, became Prefect for Slytherin House in her fifth year. She joined the Inquisitorial Squad, a group formed by the High Inquisitor and Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, Dolores Umbridge. She helped try to rat out the female members of Dumbledore's Army by searching the girls' bathrooms and getting the list of members. Along with other members of the Inquisitorial Squad, Pansy was jinxed during the final rebellion of Fred and George Weasley; she received a pair of antlers and had to recover for a day in the hospital wing.

Pansy tried to unease Harry Potter at a Quidditch match by tempting him, but Harry seemed unshaken. She also led a crowd of Slytherins in a chorus of Weasley is Our King at a few matches. She continued to be very rude to others and insulted Harry and Cho Chang, as well as the late Cedric Diggory, after seeing them together.

[edit] The Half-Blood Prince

On the ride on the Hogwarts Express to Hogwarts, Pansy shared a compartment with Malfoy, whose hair she was stroking while he lay against her lap, Crabbe, Goyle, and Blaise Zabini. She was impressed by Malfoy's Dark Mark, a sign that he had joined the Death Eaters, but was noticeably upset that he may not return for his seventh year at Hogwarts. She offered a hand to Draco before heading out of their compartment, but Draco did not take it and explained that he had to see something.

At the Welcoming Feast, Pansy and many other Slytherins applauded after hearing that Severus Snape, their Head of House, was finally taking the position of teacher for Defence Against the Dark Arts, while Horace Slughorn would take his place as Potions master.

She rushed to the hospital wing to see Malfoy after Harry used Sectumsempra against him, not knowing that it would cause so much damage, and was angry at Harry for doing it.

[edit] The Deathly Hallows

Pansy returned for her final and seventh year at Hogwarts, which was when Severus Snape was headmaster of the school and the Ministry of Magic, Lord Voldemort, and his Death Eaters were in control.

[edit] Battle of Hogwarts

Pansy, out of fear of being injured or killed from the Battle of Hogwarts or out of support for the Death Eaters, called for Harry to be turned over to Lord Voldemort, the result being the other three Houses—Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw—turning around and pointing their wands at her, much to Harry's amazement.

Her life after the Battle of Hogwarts is unknown. However, she did not marry Malfoy, who instead married Astoria Greengrass, the younger sister of Pansy's roommate, Daphne Greengrass.
