Loyalty

Jason Swann was a student who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was sorted into Gryffindor in the 1990s.

During the 1996–1997 school year, he was usually seen spending time at the Entrance Courtyard, near the entrance to the Headmaster's office. Jason was the one who gave Harry Potter a Folio Universitas that year. After Harry beat the Gobstones challenges, Jason gave him some Chocolate Frog Cards.

Etymology

The name "Jason" comes from the Greek name Ιασων (Iason), which was derived from Greek ιασθαι (iasthai) "to heal". In Greek mythology Jason was the leader of the Argonauts. After his uncle Pelias overthrew his father as king of Iolcos, Jason went in search of the Golden Fleece in order to win back the throne. During his journeys he married the sorceress Medea, who helped him gain the fleece and kill his uncle, but who later turned against him when he fell in love with another woman.
