'''Pansy Parkinson''' was a [[Wizards|witch]] in [[Harry Potter]]'s year at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]]. She was sorted into [[Slytherin]] house and in her [[fifth year]] she became a [[prefect]] along with her fellow student and friend, [[Draco Malfoy]].

Pansy Parkinson began her education at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]] in [[1991]] and was sorted into the House of [[Slytherin]]. She soon became good friends with fellow Slytherins [[Draco Malfoy]], [[Vincent Crabbe]] and [[Gregory Goyle]]. Pansy also was popular with the girls; [[Millicent Bulstrode]], [[Tracey Davis]], [[Daphne Greengrass]] and [[Unidentified bespectacled Slytherin girl|her room-mate]] and acted as the group's leader. She and Draco were both mean and powerful amongst their friends and used this to bully other students. [[File:In_Squad.PNG|thumb|left|260px|Pansy with Draco and the rest of his gang.]]

During a [[Care of Magical Creatures]] lesson, [[Draco Malfoy]] was attacked by [[Buckbeak]] the [[hippogriff]] after he approached it without caution and insulted it, even after Hagrid had stated that this was an extremely dangerous thing to do. She was in tears after the attack and was concerned enough to follow him to the [[hospital wing]].

During Pansy's [[1994–1995 school year|fourth year]], Hogwarts hosted the [[Triwizard Tournament]], a special wizarding event that attracted a lot of media attention. Pansy was among the students who gave ''[[Daily Prophet]]'' journalist [[Rita Skeeter]] false information on [[Harry Potter]], [[Rubeus Hagrid]] and [[Hermione Granger]], one of which was the making up of a false rumours that Harry and Hermione were romantically involved. She was highly amused by the ''Potter Stinks'' badges passed around by her fellow Slytherins, and laughed when Draco's [[Densaugeo]] hex accidentally hit Hermione when he and Harry started a [[duel]] in a school hallway, leaving Hermione with temporarily over-sized front teeth.

Pansy accompanied Draco to the [[Yule Ball]] that [[25 December|Christmas]], wearing frilly pink robes; by this time, the two may have been romantically involved. While there, she expressed outrage upon seeing famous [[Quidditch]] player and Triwizard Champion [[Viktor Krum]] escort Hermione Granger to the ball, and again later when a ''Daily Prophet'' article commented on how stunning Hermione looked at the event. Also that year, a slightly softer side of Pansy was shown when she clearly expressed (although she later tried to conceal) a fondness for [[unicorn]]s during a [[Care of Magical Creatures]] class.

In her [[1995–1996 school year|fifth year]], Pansy became a Slytherin [[prefect]] along with Draco. At the start of the school year she shared a [[Thestral]] drawn-carriage with Draco for the ride up to the castle. This school year would see Ministry Official Dolores Umbridge appointed as the school's [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] professor. Later on in her regime, Umbridge created a group called the [[Inquisitorial Squad]], of which Pansy was a member. While Hagrid was away, Professor [[Grubbly-Plank]] stood in for his position as [[Care of Magical Creatures]] teacher. During one lesson Draco imitated Hermione by raising his hand over-enthusiastically, which caused Pansy to shriek with laughter, only then to be startled by the pile of sticks they were studying as they turned out to be Bowtruckles. When Hagrid did indeed return to position, Pansy crudely remarked to [[Dolores Umbridge]] that it was difficult to understand [[Rubeus Hagrid]] when he spoke and that everyone hated his subject.

During [[Quidditch]] matches that year, Pansy directed her fellow Slytherins to sing ''[[Weasley is Our King]]'' to mock [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]], as well as other Gryffindor players. Pansy attempted to unsettle Harry before a game by telling him that [[C. Warrington]] planned on knocking him off his broom, although Harry was unfazed and responded that Warrington's aim is so pathetic he'd be more worried if he was aiming for the person next to him. Later on in the year when she saw [[Harry Potter]] and [[Cho Chang]] out on a date on [[Valentine's Day]], Pansy insulted them both, as well as the memory of the late [[Cedric Diggory]]. Insulting means she could have possibly been jealous of the romantic relationship, adding to the fact she wasn't that involved with Draco Malfoy.

When [[Dumbledore's Army]] members attempted to escape from the [[Room of Requirement]] later in the year, Pansy searched for female D.A. members in the girls' lavatory and grabbed the list of names as evidence. Pansy and other Squad members were jinxed during a student rebellion after [[Fred and George Weasley]]'s departure from Hogwarts; Pansy missed a day of classes while recovering from a hex that made her sprout a pair of antlers.<ref name="OTP">''[[Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix]]''</ref>

In [[1996]], on her way to Hogwarts for her [[1996-1997 school year|sixth year]], Pansy sat in the same train compartment with Draco, [[Blaise Zabini]], and a few other Slytherins. Draco had his head in Pansy's lap, and she stroked his hair while smirking, like she was the luckiest girl. Although upset by Draco's suggestion that he might not return to Hogwarts for his seventh year, Pansy seemed impressed by his implication that he had taken the [[Dark Mark]] and joined the [[Death Eaters]]. Harry Potter got the impression that she and Draco were cosier than ever during their sixth year. When the train stopped Pansy held her hand out in offer for Draco to take it, he however rejected her hand and told her to go ahead as he wanted to check to see if his suspicions that Harry was spying on him were true.

At the [[Welcoming Feast]] this year [[Albus Dumbledore]] announced that [[Severus Snape]] would now be taking on the position of [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] teacher. Pansy, along with the all students in the Slytherin house, roared with applause at this, save for Draco who was still brewing over his decision to become a Death Eater. Also in Potions that year [[Horace Slughorn]] would be filling in for Snape after he took on his new position as Defence Against the Dark Arts [[Professor]]. Later on in the year, after Harry Potter discovered that it was Draco behind [[Katie Bell]]'s injury, Harry injured Draco with the spell [[Sectumsempra]]. Upon hearing the news, Pansy rushed to visit him in the hospital wing, and "lost no time in vilifying Harry far and wide".

During Pansy's [[1997–1998 school year|final year]] at Hogwarts, [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] was in indirect control of the school through [[Severus Snape]] as headmaster and [[Amycus Carrow|Amycus]] and [[Alecto Carrow]] as professors. As a Slytherin and, most likely, a [[pure-blood]], Pansy was probably one of the favoured students and would not have been on the receiving end of their brutal and unfair punishments.

In [[May]] of [[1998]], Lord Voldemort approached the school with his [[Death Eaters|Death Eater]] army, and offered those inside the Hogwarts castle a chance to turn [[Harry Potter]] over to him in exchange for sparing them all.

The students of [[Gryffindor]], [[Hufflepuff]], and [[Ravenclaw]] houses all drew their [[wand]]s on her as a result, and [[Minerva McGonagall|Professor McGonagall]] dismissed Slytherin house from the Great Hall first, starting with Pansy.

Pansy left Hogwarts with her house-mates, and likely was not one of the few to return as reinforcements during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]] with [[Horace Slughorn|Professor Slughorn]]. Instead she may have been among the [[Slytherin]] students that Voldemort told [[Lucius Malfoy]] had come to join him. However, this is unlikely as she seemed terrified of the thought of Voldemort attacking Hogwarts, so it is more likely that she didn't take either side.

Pansy was described as a "hard-faced Slytherin girl" by [[Harry Potter]], and on several occasions, students described her as "pug faced". However, Pansy seemed to believe herself to be better-looking than other girls, as she frequently made disparaging comments about the appearances of others, such as [[Angelina Johnson]] and [[Hermione Granger]], but this may have been just her way of trying to make herself feel better. Rita Sheeter at least, described her as "pretty and vivacious" in her article about Hermione.

— Pansy before the Battle of Hogwarts[src]

Pansy Parkinson was a witch in Harry Potter's year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She was sorted into Slytherin house and in her fifth year became a prefect along with her fellow student and friend, Draco Malfoy. In the same year, she became one of the members of the short lived Inquisitorial Squad. When the final battle of the Second Wizarding War began at Hogwarts, Pansy spoke up in favour of turning Harry over to Lord Voldemort, only to have many of her schoolmates draw their wands upon her in Harry's defence.

BiographyEdit

Education at HogwartsEdit

Early yearsEdit

"Ooh, sticking up for Longbottom? Never thought you'd like fat little crybabies, Parvati."
—Pansy mocking Parvati Patil and Neville Longbottom[src]
Pansy Parkinson began her education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1991 and was sorted into Slytherin House. She soon became good friends with fellow Slytherins Draco Malfoy, Vincent Crabbe and Gregory Goyle. Pansy was also popular with the girls; Millicent Bulstrode, Tracey Davis, Daphne Greengrass and her room-mate, acting as the group leader. Both Pansy and Draco were mean and powerful amongst their friends and used this to bully other students.

Patr0nusAdded by Patr0nus

During Pansy's first class of flying, which Slytherin shared with its rival house, Gryffindor, she teased Parvati Patil for defending Neville Longbottom when Draco Malfoy threw away his Remembrall.

This was the start of a long-lived mean streak for Pansy; throughout her education, she would belittle countless other students whom she disliked.[2] During her second year, Hogwarts was under threat of closure when the Basilisk that lived down in the Chamber of Secrets was loose; it attacked several Muggle-borns, among them Hermione Granger, whom Pansy enjoyed to tease frequently.

Third yearEdit

Pansy: "Does it hurt terribly, Draco?"
Draco: "It comes and it goes. Still, I consider myself lucky. If it wasn't for Madam Pomfrey, another minute or two and I could have lost my arm."

FredWiltersenAdded by FredWiltersen

In 1993, the Hogwarts Express was stopped and entered by Dementors searching for Sirius Black. During this infiltration, Harry Potter fainted in the presence of a Dementor and Pansy was one of the Slytherin students who took to mocking him for this throughout the rest of the school year.

During a Care of Magical Creatures lesson, Draco Malfoy was attacked by Buckbeak the hippogriff after he approached it without caution and insulted it, even after Hagrid had stated that this was an extremely dangerous thing to do. She was in tears after the attack and was concerned enough to follow him to the hospital wing. Afterwards, she frequently fawned over Malfoy's injury, which he exaggerated in order to get attention and in an attempt to get Rubeus Hagrid into trouble with the Ministry of Magic, which evidently he did, as it resulted in the planned execution of Buckbeak, much to the delight of Pansy and her friends.[3]

Fourth yearEdit

"Stunningly pretty? Her? What was she judging against – a chipmunk?"
—Pansy about Hermione Granger when her looks are complimented in an article[src]

During Pansy's fourth year, Hogwarts hosted the Triwizard Tournament, a special wizarding event that attracted a lot of media attention. Pansy was among the students who gave Daily Prophet journalist Rita Skeeter false information on Harry Potter, Rubeus Hagrid and Hermione Granger. One piece was the making up of false rumours which detailed that Harry and Hermione were romantically involved. She was highly amused by the Potter Stinks badges passed around by her fellow Slytherins, and laughed when Draco's Densaugeo hex accidentally hit Hermione when he and Harry started a duel in a school hallway, leaving Hermione with temporarily over-sized front teeth.

Pansy accompanied Draco to the Yule Ball that Christmas, wearing frilly pink robes; by this time, the two may have been dating. While there, she expressed outrage upon seeing famous Quidditch player and Triwizard Champion Viktor Krum escort Hermione Granger to the ball, and again later when a Daily Prophet article commented on how stunning Hermione looked at the event. Also that year, a slightly softer side of Pansy was shown when she clearly expressed (although she later tried to conceal) a fondness for unicorns during a Care of Magical Creatures class.

During this school year, she was known to wear a watch, which Nifflers tried to bite off her wrist during one of Hagrid's classes.

Fifth yearEdit

Patr0nusAdded by Patr0nus
In her fifth year, Pansy became a Slytherin prefect along with Draco. At the start of the school year she shared a Thestral drawn-carriage with Draco for the ride up to the castle. This school year would see Ministry Official Dolores Umbridge appointed as the school's Defence Against the Dark Arts professor. Later on in her regime, Umbridge created a group called the Inquisitorial Squad, of which Pansy was a member. While Hagrid was away, Professor Grubbly-Plank stood in for his position as Care of Magical Creatures teacher. During one lesson Draco imitated Hermione by raising his hand over-enthusiastically, which caused Pansy to shriek with laughter, only then to be startled by the pile of sticks they were studying as they turned out to be Bowtruckles. When Hagrid did indeed return to position, Pansy crudely remarked to Dolores Umbridge that it was difficult to understand Rubeus Hagrid when he spoke and that everyone hated his subject.

Patr0nusAdded by Patr0nus

During Quidditch matches that year, Pansy directed her fellow Slytherins to sing Weasley is Our King to mock Ron Weasley, as well as other Gryffindor players. Pansy attempted to unsettle Harry before a game by telling him that C. Warrington planned on knocking him off his broom, although Harry was unfazed and responded that Warrington's aim is so pathetic he'd be more worried if he was aiming for the person next to him. Later on in the year when she saw Harry Potter and Cho Chang out on a date on Valentine's Day, Pansy insulted them both, as well as the memory of the late Cedric Diggory. Insulting means she could have possibly been jealous of the romantic relationship, adding to the fact she wasn't that involved with Draco Malfoy.

When Dumbledore's Army members attempted to escape from the Room of Requirement later in the year, Pansy searched for female D.A. members in the girls' bathrooms and grabbed the list of names as evidence. Pansy and other Squad members were jinxed during a student rebellion after Fred and George Weasley's departure from Hogwarts; Pansy missed a day of classes while recovering from a hex that made her sprout a pair of antlers.[4]

Sixth yearEdit

In 1996, on her way to Hogwarts for her sixth year, Pansy sat in the same train compartment with Draco, Blaise Zabini, and a few other Slytherins. Draco had his head in Pansy's lap, and she stroked his hair while smirking, like she was the luckiest girl. Although upset by Draco's suggestion that he might not return to Hogwarts for his seventh year, Pansy seemed impressed by his implication that he had taken the Dark Mark and joined the Death Eaters. Harry Potter got the impression that she and Draco were cosier than ever during their sixth year. When the train stopped Pansy held her hand out in offer for Draco to take it, he however rejected her hand and told her to go ahead as he wanted to check to see if his suspicions that Harry was spying on him were true.

At the Welcoming Feast this year Albus Dumbledore announced that Severus Snape would now be taking on the position of Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. Pansy, along with the all students in the Slytherin house, roared with applause at this, save for Draco who was still brewing over his decision to become a Death Eater. Also in Potions that year Horace Slughorn would be filling in for Snape after he took on his new position as Defence Against the Dark Arts Professor. Pansy was not among the few students who advanced to N.E.W.T.-level Potions, evidently she did not meet the requirements. Later on in the year, after Harry Potter discovered that it was Draco behind Katie Bell's injury, Harry injured Draco with the spell Sectumsempra. Upon hearing the news, Pansy rushed to visit him in the hospital wing, and "lost no time in vilifying Harry far and wide". At the end of the year Albus Dumbledore was killed by Severus Snape and students attended his funeral service in which he was buried next to the school Lake.[5]

Seventh yearEdit

"Before Harry could speak, there was a massive movement. The Gryffindors in front of him had risen and stood facing, not Harry, but the Slytherins. Then the Hufflepuffs stood, and almost at the same moment, the Ravenclaws, all of them with their backs to Harry, all of them looking toward Pansy instead, and Harry, awestruck and overwhelmed, saw wands emerging everywhere, pulled from beneath cloaks and from under sleeves."

Patr0nusAdded by Patr0nus

During Pansy's final year at Hogwarts, Lord Voldemort was in indirect control of the school through Severus Snape as headmaster and Amycus and Alecto Carrow as professors. As a Slytherin and, most likely, a pure-blood, Pansy was probably one of the favoured students and would not have been on the receiving end of their brutal and unfair punishments.

In May of 1998, Lord Voldemort approached the school with his Death Eater army, and offered those inside the Hogwarts castle a chance to turn Harry Potter over to him in exchange for sparing them all. Pansy was the only person to stand up in favour of doing so. The students of Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw houses all drew their wands on her as a result, and Professor McGonagall dismissed Slytherin house from the Great Hall first, starting with Pansy.

Pansy left Hogwarts with her house-mates, and likely was not one of the few to return as reinforcements during the Battle of Hogwarts with Professor Slughorn. Instead she may have been among the Slytherin students that Voldemort told Lucius Malfoy had come to join him. However, this is unlikely as she seemed terrified of the thought of Voldemort attacking Hogwarts, so it is more likely that she didn't take either side.

Later lifeEdit

Very little is known of what happened to Pansy after the Second Wizarding War or her later life. The only thing that was confirmed was that she was no longer associated with Draco Malfoy.

Physical descriptionEdit

"Looking down, Harry saw the pug-faced Pansy Parkinson right at the front of the stands, her back to the pitch."
Harry Potter's view of Pansy[src]

Pansy was described as a "hard-faced Slytherin girl" by Harry Potter, and on several occasions, students described her as "pug faced". However, Pansy seemed to believe herself to be better-looking than other girls, as she frequently made disparaging comments about the appearances of others, such as Angelina Johnson and Hermione Granger, but this may have been just her way of trying to make herself feel better. Rita Sheeter at least, described her as "pretty and vivacious" in her article about Hermione.

Personality and traitsEdit

"Hey, Potter! Potter! The Dementors are coming, Potter! Woooooooo!"
—Pansy makes fun of Harry Potter[src]

[6] She is often seen making snide and cutting remarks at the expense of Gryffindor students, such as making fun of Angelina Johnson's braided hair by wondering aloud who would want to look like they had worms coming out of their head. She was even callous enough to disrespect the late Cedric Diggory, shrieking at Cho Chang when she went on a date with Harry Potter in 1996: "I don't think much of your taste...at least Diggory was good-looking!"[4] She has a tendency to shout her insults loudly, so as to gain the attention and have more people laugh at the object or person of her insults.

Pansy may not be very bright, at least socially (academically, she was a prefect), as Hermione Granger once described her as "thicker than a concussed troll"[4], though this might have to do with Hermione disliking Pansy. She also tends to be rather dramatic, as she overreacted to any injury Draco Malfoy suffered and fiercely blamed those she considered responsible[5]. Pansy also enjoyed gossip, particularly spreading rumours against those she disliked, such as when she lied to Rita Skeeter about Hermione Granger possibly brewing Love Potions[6] to entrance boys like Viktor Krum and Harry Potter.

Judging by the amusement Pansy expressed when Blaise Zabini made a rude comment about Ginny Weasley being a "filthy blood traitor"[5], her association with the prejudiced Draco Malfoy, and the stance she expressed just before the Battle of Hogwarts, she is most likely a pure-blood who disdains Muggles, Muggle-borns and blood traitors.

Magical abilities and skillsEdit

RelationshipsEdit

Pansy got on seemingly well with Draco Malfoy during their school years. They were both sorted into Slytherin house and each had dominant personalities, both being leaders in their house. By her third year, Pansy had developed tender feelings for Draco, appearing overly concerned by his injury to his arm caused by Buckbeak during a Care of Magical Creatures lesson, after which she rushed out of class to the Hospital wing to visit him. She was often seen fawning over him and Draco seemed to greatly enjoy her attention.[3]

By 1994, possible romantic feelings between the two had developed, as they attended the Yule Ball together[6]. In their fifth year, Pansy and Draco were both made the Prefects of Slytherin, and both had joined the Inquisitorial Squad, Pansy and Draco are friends.[4]. On the Hogwarts Express journey to school for their sixth year, Pansy and Draco sat together, with Draco's head in her lap as she stroked his hair. They appeared affectionate, but Draco did not confide in Pansy about the mission Lord Voldemort had given him that year. Also, when she offered him her hand when they got off the train, Draco rejected her, perhaps indicating that Pansy had stronger feelings for him than he did for her. Their relationship remained at least till the end of sixth year; after Draco was sent to the Hospital wings because of Harry's curse Sectumsempra (early May, 1997), Pansy immediately visited him.[5]

Sometime after Pansy and Draco had finished their education, their relationship drifted further, and Draco ended up marrying Astoria Greengrass.

Patr0nusAdded by Patr0nus
Pansy did not seem to get along with any students outside of the house of Slytherin, particularly other girls and Gryffindors. At some point during her time at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Pansy had either teased or offended Angelina Johnson, Neville Longbottom, Parvati Patil, Hermione Granger, Harry Potter, multiple members of the Weasley family, Cho Chang, and Cedric Diggory.

Pansy frequently taunted others about their physical appearances, such as Angelina Johnson's hair or Neville Longbottom's weight, about their love lives, or about their families. She also tended to take great amusement in seeing others publicly embarrassed or hurt.

EtymologyEdit

  • A pansy is a type of violet. Its name is derived from the French word pensée, meaning "thought" or "remembrance."[7] In William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, the juice of the pansy flower is used as a Love Potion. In folklore, the pansy represents separated lovers. The slang term pansy can also refer to a cowardly person, or a weak and effeminate male[8]. The face of a Persian cat, flat and squashed, is sometimes described as a "pansy face"[9], and may refer to Pansy Parkinson's looks. Pan was the greek god of the wild, forests, nature, etc. His name means "all", however the literal meaning in Ancient Greek of "Pan" is "rustic".
  • Parkinson is an English surname meaning "son of Parkin", with Parkin itself being a diminutive form of the given name Peter, which comes from the Greek petros, meaning "rock" or "stone". The idea behind giving an antagonistic character the name Parkinson may derive from Parkinson's disease, a brain disease that causes degradation of motor skills and speech.
