She witnessed the Second Task of the Triwizard Tournament at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, watching carefully as each of the four champions struggled to achieve their task.

In June of 1997, she and her tribe attended the Funeral of Albus Dumbledore, where they sung for him, a tune that despite being very chilling was clearly a lament of sorrow. It was evident to the onlookers present that she and her colony, at least, were sad to see him go.
Personality and traits
