Katie Bell's friend, named Leanne, was a witch who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry during the 1990s and was Sorted into Gryffindor House. She was seen with Katie in the Great Hall once she returned from St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries after being cursed by an Opal necklace.


Early years

This witch attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was Sorted into Gryffindor, with Minerva McGonagall, the Transfiguration Professor, as Head of Gryffindor House. She slept in Gryffindor Tower with the other girls in her year and, at some point, befriended fellow Gryffindor Katie Bell.

1996–1997 school year

In 1996, her friend, Katie Bell, was cursed by an Opal Necklace given to her by an Imperiused Madam Rosmerta as a failed attempt to assassinate Albus Dumbledore by Draco Malfoy. Once Katie returned to Hogwarts, her friend met with her in the Great Hall before Harry Potter arrived to question them, but Katie did not remember who it was that cursed her.
