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


She was one of Horace Slughorn's all-time favourite students, making her a member of his "Slug Club" while she was attending Hogwarts (c. 1979-1986). She gives him free tickets whenever he wants. According to her "Wizard of the Month" card which appeared on J.K. Rowling's website, she was born in 1968, which would make her one of Slughorn's last students before he retired in the 1980s. Her Wizard cards have depicted her as dark-skinned. Ginny Weasley is a fan of Gwenog, as she has 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.

Physical appearance

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

Personality and traits

Jones has said on a number of occasions that witches make better Quidditch players than wizards, and no one is likely to disagree with her. This is because "people who disagree with [Jones] have a nasty habit of turning into woodlice." After a game she enjoys 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.
