Astoria Malfoy (née Greengrass) (born c. 1982)[3] was a pure-blood witch.

Biography Edit

Early life (1982-1993) Edit

Born into the Greengrass family, among the oldest, truly pure-blooded families in Britain, Astoria was brought up in the ideals of Pure-blood supremacy. The events of the Second Wizarding War during her teenage years, however, made her espouse a more tolerant life view from then on.[2]

Hogwarts years (1993-2000) Edit

Astoria attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She eventually married Draco Malfoy, who was two years ahead of her and a classmate of Daphne Greengrass, Astoria's older sister. The couple had one son together, Scorpius Hyperion Malfoy,[4] whom they saw off at King's Cross Station for his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 2017.[5]

Later life (Post 2000) Edit

Astoria refused to raise her child in the belief that Muggles (and likely Muggle-borns, half-bloods and Squibs as well) were scum and, as a result, Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy found her a somewhat disappointing daughter-in-law; family gatherings were, as a result, often fraught with tension.[2] It is unknown what her husband Draco's reaction was to this, but given that he also was sobered by his own terrible experience during the Second Wizarding War, it is possible that he secretly approved of it.

EtymologyEdit

Малфои в эпилоге Поттерианы

Astoria with her son and husband in 2017.

The name Astoria may be derived from the London Astoria, a music venue in London, England, or the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, a famously luxurious hotel in New York City. This hotel was named after the Astors, a very wealthy and influential American family.[6] The name may also be related to Astraea, a daughter of Zeus in Greek mythology who personified justice. Astraea is derived from Greek meaning "star-maiden"; this may relate to her husband's maternal family often naming its members after stars and constellations. The name may also be spelled Asteria, as shown on the Weasley Family Tree.[7] Like Hyperion — her son Scorpius' middle name — Asteria is the name of one of the Titans of Greek mythology.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Astoria is played by Jade Olivia, Tom Felton's real life girlfriend, in the epilogue scene of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.[8]
  • J. K. Rowling has said that she chose to have Draco marry someone other than Pansy Parkinson, who seems to have been his girlfriend during his adolescence, because she always hated Pansy, who represented "the girls who teased me when I was at school". She has referred to Pansy as "the anti-Hermione".[9] Indeed, keeping in line with this, J.K. Rowling draws a much more sympathetic portrait of Astoria Greengrass on Pottermore.[2]
  • Astoria is the only character addressed in the epilogue that the regular trio don't know, although the fact that they know about Scorpius might mean that they do know her, they just call her "Draco's wife". Also, in a school context, a two year gap is considerable, and since even her sister was barely peripheral to the central trio's world, they may well not have been truly aware of her until she joined the house of Malfoy.
  • Though her sister Daphne was sorted into Slytherin, it is unknown if Astoria was sorted into Slytherin as well.
  • Astoria's maiden name, Greengrass, could refer to one of the Slytherin House colours, green.
