[[1979]]-[[1986]]). She gives him free tickets whenever he wants. According to her "[[Wizard of the Month]]" card which appeared on [[J.K.Rowling Official Site|J.K.

Gwenog Jones (b. 1968) was the famous captain and beater of the Welsh all-female Quidditch team, the Holyhead Harpies.

BiographyEdit

She was one of Horace Slughorn's favourite students, making her a member of his "Slug Club" while she was attending Hogwarts (c. 1979-1986). She gave him free tickets to her Quidditch games whenever he wanted[2]. According to her "Wizard of the Month" card, she was born in 1968, which would make her one of Slughorn's last students before he retired in the 1980s. Ginny Weasley was a fan of Gwenog, as she had a poster of her on the wall of her room at the Burrow. Ginny would go on to play for the Holyhead Harpies as well a few years later, although it is unknown if Gwenog was still on the team at that time.

By 2014, Gwenog Jones had retired from the Holyhead Harpies, and had become the manager of the Welsh National Quidditch team. Shortly before the 2014 Quidditch World Cup, Gwenog Jones threatened to "curse the face off" rival Brazilian manager José Barboza, when he called her Chasers "talentless hags" (a comment that he later insisted had been taken out of context).[1]

Physical appearanceEdit

Gwenog was described as being a tall, dark-skinned witch. Due to the fact she was a beater it can be presumed that she was fairly burly or at least had a 'beater's build'.

Personality and traitsEdit

Jones had said on a number of occasions that witches made better Quidditch players than wizards, and no one was likely to disagree with her. This was because "people who disagreed with [Jones] had a nasty habit of turning into woodlice." After a game she enjoyed relaxing with friends, drinking butterbeer, and listening to the Weird Sisters. Hermione Granger considered Gwenog to be "a bit full of herself" after meeting her at one of Slughorn's "Slug Club" meetings in 1996.[2]
