'''Parvati Patil''' (b. [[1979]] or [[1980]]), a [[Wizardkind|witch]] of Indian descent, was the daughter of [[Patil twins' father|Mr.]] and [[Patil twins' mother|Mrs. Patil]], and the identical twin sister of [[Padma Patil|Padma]]. She was also a [[Gryffindor]] student at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]], while Padma was a [[Ravenclaw]]. Parvati became best friends with [[Lavender Brown]], with whom she shared many interests, such as a love for [[Divination]]. Parvati attended the [[Yule Ball]] with [[Harry Potter]] in 1994, and a year later she joined [[Dumbledore's Army]], an organisation founded and led by Harry. During her seventh year, she continued her studies at Hogwarts, when it was under the control of [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]]. Parvati fought at the [[Battle of Hogwarts]] in 1998 against Voldemort and her current status is unknown.

Parvati was born to [[Patil twins' father|Mr. Patil]] and [[Patil twins' mother|his wife]] as one of their twin daughters; the other being [[Padma Patil|Padma]].

At the age of eleven, Parvati and Padma went to [[Diagon Alley]] following the arrival of their [[Hogwarts acceptance letter]]s. There, they purchased their wands and necessary school equipment.

Parvati began attending Hogwarts in [[1991]] and was sorted into [[Gryffindor]] house, while her identical twin sister [[Padma Patil|Padma]] was sorted into [[Ravenclaw]]. Parvati shared her dormitory with [[Hermione Granger]], [[Fay Dunbar]], [[Fay Dunbar's friend|a ginger girl]] and her best friend, [[Lavender Brown]].

Very little is known about what happened to Parvati in her first year. During her first flying lesson, Parvati came to the defence of housemate [[Neville Longbottom]] when [[Draco Malfoy]] threw away his [[Remembrall]]. [[Slytherin]] student [[Pansy Parkinson]] made fun of her for this. Hermione also gave her a hug after Harry won a game of Quidditch against the Hufflepuff team. Parvati also told Lavender that Hermione was crying in the girls washroom after [[Ronald Weasley]] made fun of her.<ref name="PS">''[[Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone]]''</ref>

In her third year, Parvati began taking [[Divination]], which soon became her favourite subject. She and Lavender grew close to [[Sybill Trelawney|Professor Trelawney]], who believed that Parvati could be a [[Seer]] one day. During their very first lesson she alarmed Parvati by telling her to beware a red-haired man, making Parvati suspicious of [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]].
   
That year, when [[Remus Lupin|Professor Lupin]] taught his [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] class about [[Boggart]]s, Parvati's greatest fear was revealed to be mummies, although this could be translated as a fear of death or a fear of being buried alive.<ref name="POA">''[[Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban]]''</ref>

Parvati attended the [[Yule Ball]] with [[Harry Potter]] in [[1994]]. She wore [[Parvati Patil's dress robes|dress robes]] and gold bracelets. She seemed to enjoy the attention she received for being the date of a famous wizard and was eager to dance. After being ignored by Harry, who was romantically interested in [[Cho Chang]] at the time, Parvati spent most of the evening with a [[Unidentified Beauxbatons students#Beauxbatons boy|boy from Beauxbatons]], whom she dated for a time afterwards.

Parvati also enjoyed [[Care of Magical Creatures]] classes when they were taught by [[Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank|Professor Grubbly-Plank]] rather than [[Rubeus Hagrid]], as she felt the former was a better qualified teacher. After the Yule Ball, Parvati and Padma acted "very cool" towards their dates, Harry and Ron, who had basically ignored them in favour of staring at Cho and Hermione and refused to dance.<ref name="GOF">''[[Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire]]''</ref>

The twins joined [[Dumbledore's Army]] in their fifth year, and it seemed their attitudes towards Harry and Ron had somewhat mellowed. During one meeting, Parvati produced such a good [[Reductor Curse]] that she reduced a table to dust. She and Lavender were quite upset that year by [[Dolores Umbridge]]'s treatment of [[Sybill Trelawney|Professor Trelawney]], whom Umbridge wanted to dismiss, but [[Albus Dumbledore|Headmaster Dumbledore]] managed to keep on. Parvati and Lavender were both enamoured of the new [[Divination]] professor, [[Firenze]].

In her [[1996|sixth year]], Parvati had to convince her parents not to take her and her twin sister out of [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]]. She was disappointed not to be invited to the [[Slug Club]] by new [[Potions (class)|Potions]] professor [[Horace Slughorn]]; in particular, to the [[Slug Club Christmas party|party]] he hosted at [[Christmas]], which she discussed with [[Hermione Granger]].

That year, Parvati also became slightly dismayed by her best friend [[Lavender Brown]]'s romance with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]]. Although Parvati initially was supportive of her friend's feelings for Ron, as the two seemed to whisper and giggle about him before they began dating, Parvati was put off, and also very embarrassed, by the almost obsessive degree to which Lavender threw herself into the relationship, often snogging him in public, getting possessive when he was with another girl, pestering Harry with questions about his feelings for her, and giving him a necklace that read "my sweetheart". The two remained close, though.

====Seventh year====
In [[1997]], [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] took over the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry of Magic]] and attendance at Hogwarts became mandatory. Parvati returned for her seventh year and joined the second [[Dumbledore's Army]], which was re-formed in order to oppose Professors [[Alecto and Amycus Carrow]]'s teaching of the [[Dark Arts]] and anti-[[Muggle]] propaganda, as well as their cruel punishment of students. When Harry, Ron and Hermione returned to Hogwarts in [[1998]], the D.A. insisted on fighting [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]]'s incoming army.

  +
In [[1998]] Hogwarts was under the control of [[Lord Voldemort]] and his followers, students where brutally punished and taught different subjects, like how to use dark magic instead of defending against it. Sensing the need for rebellion yet again, like there had been when Hogwarts was under the control of [[Dolores Umbridge]], Parvati and her sister Padma both joined the reconstituted [[Dumbledore's Army]], standing up against [[Death Eater]] control of Hogwarts. Unlike before when trouble brewed Parvati's parents had not attempted to withdraw her and her sister from school as it had now become compulsory attendance for pure-blood students, which the Patil sisters are likely to be.
   
During the [[Battle of Hogwarts]], Parvati duelled with [[Travers]], but helped [[Dean Thomas]] by shooting a [[Full Body-Bind Curse]] at [[Antonin Dolohov]] to prevent him from retaliating against Dean for [[Stunning Spell|stunning]] another [[Death Eaters|Death Eater]]. It is unknown if she survived the battle and the [[ Second Wizarding War]]

====Battle of Hogwarts====
  +
In May, [[Harry Potter]], [[Ron Weasley]] and [[Hermione Granger]] returned to Hogwarts after taking the year off to destroy [[Horcruxes]]. With Harry's return, Dumbledore's Army was stronger than it had ever been. But with this return, Voldemort and his Death Eaters came looking for Harry. Hogwarts staff and students refused to simply hand Harry over without a fight, and in return a fight is what they got. Parvati participated in the Battle of Hogwarts, fighting alongside her sister and [[Dean Thomas]].

They were often seen around school together, giggling and whispering.

Parvati and Lavender were not as close to their other roommate, [[Hermione Granger]], as they were to each other.

"She says I've got all the makings of a true Seer. I saw loads of stuff…"
—Parvati on Professor Trelawney[src]

Parvati Patil (b. 1979 or 1980), was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Patil, and the identical twin sister of Padma. She was also a Gryffindor student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, while Padma was a Ravenclaw. Parvati became best friends with Lavender Brown, with whom she shared many interests, such as a love for Divination. Parvati attended the Yule Ball with Harry Potter in 1994, and a year later she joined Dumbledore's Army, an organisation taught and led by Harry Potter. During her seventh year in 1998, she continued her studies at Hogwarts, when it was under the control of Lord Voldemort and the same year Parvati fought at the Battle of Hogwarts against Voldemort and his Death Eaters. It is unknown if she survived the battle.

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Parvati was born to Mr. Patil and his wife as one of their twin daughters; the other being Padma. She was apparently familiar with Pansy Parkinson prior to her enrolment at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, as during their first year Pansy once made a remark that implied that she had known Parvati for some time.

Hogwarts years (1991-1998)Edit

Draco: "Did you see his face, the great lump?"
Parvati: "Shut up, Malfoy."
Pansy: "Ooh, sticking up for Longbottom? Never thought you'd like fat little crybabies, Parvati."
— Parvati defending Neville Longbottom[src]
Lavender feast

Parvati and Lavender

Parvati began attending Hogwarts in 1991 and was sorted into Gryffindor house, while her identical twin sister Padma was sorted into Ravenclaw. Parvati shared her dormitory with Hermione Granger, her best friend, Lavender Brown and other two girls.

During her first flying lesson, Parvati came to the defence of housemate Neville Longbottom when Draco Malfoy threw away his Remembrall. Slytherin student Pansy Parkinson made fun of her for this. Hermione also gave her a hug after Harry won a game of Quidditch against the Hufflepuff team. Parvati also told Lavender that Hermione was crying in the girls' bathroom after Ronald Weasley made fun of her during a Charms class.[5]

Third yearEdit

ParvatiPoA

Parvati in her third year.

In her third year, Parvati began taking Divination, which soon became her favourite subject. She and Lavender grew close to Professor Trelawney, who believed that Parvati could be a Seer one day. During their very first lesson she alarmed Parvati by telling her to beware a red-haired man, making Parvati suspicious of Ron Weasley.

That year, when Professor Lupin taught his Defence Against the Dark Arts class about Boggarts, Parvati's greatest fear was revealed to be mummies, although this could be translated as a fear of death or a fear of being buried alive. In the film adaption, her boggart was a giant snake.[4]

Fourth yearEdit

Boy: "May I have your arm?"
Parvati: "Arm, leg, I'm yours."
— Parvati is asked to dance at the Yule Ball[src]
Yule Ball date

Parvati in her Yule Ball robes as Harry Potter's date.

Parvati attended the Yule Ball with Harry Potter in 1994. She wore bright pink dress robes and gold bracelets. She seemed to enjoy the attention she received for being the date of a famous wizard and was eager to dance. After being ignored by Harry, who was romantically interested in Cho Chang at the time, Parvati spent most of the evening with a boy from Beauxbatons, whom she dated for a time afterwards.

Parvati also enjoyed Care of Magical Creatures classes when they were taught by Professor Grubbly-Plank rather than Rubeus Hagrid, as she felt the former was a better qualified teacher. After the Yule Ball, both Parvati and Padma acted "very cool" towards their dates, Harry and Ron, who had basically ignored them in favour of staring at Cho and Hermione and refused to dance.[6]

Fifth yearEdit

Padma: "Hey Harry, we got some more Babbling Beverage."
Umbridge (via speaker): "Remember children, Mr. Filch has a... a terrible smell."
Padma: "She's finally making sense."
— Parvati and Padma asking Harry to pour Babbling Beverage into a speaker[src]
Patil twins OOTP

Parvati and Padma at a D.A. meeting in the Room of Requirement.

The twins joined Dumbledore's Army in their fifth year, and it seemed their attitudes towards Harry and Ron had somewhat mellowed. During one meeting, Parvati produced such a good Reductor Curse that she reduced a table to dust. She and Lavender were quite upset that year by Dolores Umbridge's treatment of Professor Trelawney, whom Umbridge dismissed, but Headmaster Dumbledore managed to persuade to stay living in the castle. Parvati and Lavender were both enamoured of the new Divination professor, Firenze.

During her fifth year also Parvati's rebellious side had really started to show, after becoming a member of Dumbledore's Army, Parvati had also, with the help of her sister Padma and Harry Potter, started to destroy the speakers that Umbridge had placed around the castle in an attempt to silence her.

Her experience in the D.A. likely contributed to Parvati achieving an O.W.L. in Defence Against the Dark Arts; she is also known to have achieved O.W.L.s in Divination and Transfiguration.[7]

Sixth yearEdit

Hermione: "Hi, Parvati! Are you going to Slughorn's party tonight?"
Parvati: "No invite. I'd love to go, though, it sounds like it's going to be really good… You're going, aren't you?"
— Parvati and Hermione Granger[src]

In her sixth year, Parvati had to convince her parents not to take her and her twin sister out of Hogwarts. She was disappointed not to be invited to the Slug Club by new Potions professor Horace Slughorn; in particular, to the party he hosted at Christmas, which she discussed with Hermione Granger.

That year, Parvati also became slightly dismayed by her best friend Lavender Brown's romance with Ron Weasley. Although Parvati initially was supportive of her friend's feelings for Ron, as the two seemed to whisper and giggle about him before they began going out, Parvati was put off, and also very embarrassed, by the almost obsessive degree to which Lavender threw herself into the relationship, often snogging him in public, getting possessive when he was with another girl, pestering Harry with questions about his feelings for her, and giving him a necklace that read "my sweetheart". The two remained close, though.

Parvati and Padma returned home the morning after Albus Dumbledore's death at the end of the school year.[8]

Seventh yearEdit

DA 1998

Parvati along with the rest of the D.A. in 1998.

In 1998 Hogwarts was under the control of Lord Voldemort and his followers, students where brutally punished and taught different subjects, like how to use dark magic instead of defending against it. Sensing the need for rebellion yet again, like there had been when Hogwarts was under the control of Dolores Umbridge, Parvati and her sister Padma both joined the reconstituted Dumbledore's Army, standing up against Death Eater control of Hogwarts. Unlike before when trouble brewed Parvati's parents had not attempted to withdraw her and her sister from school as it had now become compulsory attendance for pure-blood students, which the Patil sisters are likely to be.

Battle of HogwartsEdit

In May, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger returned to Hogwarts after taking the year off to destroy Horcruxes. With Harry's return, Dumbledore's Army was stronger than it had ever been. But with this return, Voldemort and his Death Eaters came looking for Harry. Hogwarts staff and students refused to simply hand Harry over without a fight, and in return a fight is what they got. Parvati participated in the Battle of Hogwarts, fighting alongside her sister and Dean Thomas.

During the Battle of Hogwarts, Parvati duelled with Travers, but helped Dean Thomas by shooting a Full Body-Bind Curse at Antonin Dolohov to prevent him from retaliating against Dean for stunning another Death Eater

Physical appearanceEdit

"I still can't work out how you two got the two best-looking girls in the year."
Dean Thomas[src]
Parvati Patil

Parvati at the Yule Ball.

Parvati and Padma were described by Dean Thomas in 1994 as "the two best looking girls in the year". They both have long black hair. Parvati usually wore her hair in a plait.[6] Both Parvati and her sister Padma were usually seen wearing silver necklaces with the letter "P" hanging from the chain around their necks and over their ties during her years at Hogwarts.

Personality and traitsEdit

Parvati can be seen as the less serious of the Patil twins; like her friend Lavender Brown, she enjoys gossip and fashion, and the two were often seen whispering and giggling together. They also share a great interest in Divination and are relatively close to Professor Trelawney.[4]

Both girls could also be insensitive to others at times, a Gryffindor trait according to Ravenclaw prefect Robert Hilliard. This was exemplified when they pointed and laughed at Luna Lovegood's radish earrings[7]. Still, Parvati was loyal to those she considered her friends. She stood up to those who treated her friends poorly, such as when she defended Neville Longbottom against Draco Malfoy's taunts[5] and comforted Professor Trelawney after Dolores Umbridge fired her[7]. Parvati is also brave, as her Sorting into Gryffindor house and her participation in the final battle proves[9].

Magical abilities and skillsEdit

RelationshipsEdit

Padma PatilEdit

"Parvati Patil's twin's in Ravenclaw, and they're identical. You'd think they'd be together, wouldn't you?"
Hermione Granger[src]

Padma Patil is Parvati's twin sister. The girls were separated once they began attending Hogwarts, as Parvati was sorted into Gryffindor and Padma into Ravenclaw, which indicates differences in their character as Parvati appears to be less serious than her studious sister.

Lavender BrownEdit

Desk11ma2

Lavender Brown, her best friend.

Lavender Brown was one of Parvati's roommates at Hogwarts and soon became her best friend. The two girls share many interests, including Divination, gossip and fashion, and are both close to Professor Trelawney[7].

They were often seen around school together, giggling and whispering. Parvati initially supported Lavender in her infatuation with Ron Weasley in their sixth year, but eventually became slightly dismayed with how intensely Lavender threw herself into the relationship[8]. However, the two remained close. Sadly, Lavender was killed by Fenrir Greyback in the Battle of Hogwarts. It is unknown how Parvati took the news; however, she was seen mourning over Lavender's body after the battle along with Professor Trelawney.

Hermione GrangerEdit

Parvati: "Wow, you like your Quidditch players, don't you? First Krum, then McLaggen"
Hermione: "I like really good Quidditch players. Well, see you… Got to go get ready for the party…"
— Parvati and Hermione Granger in their sixth year[src]

Parvati and Lavender were not as close to their other roommate, Hermione Granger, as they were to each other. Hermione did not share the girls' interests, such as Divination and gossip, which occasionally led to conflict. For example, Parvati and Lavender were both offended on Professor Trelawney's behalf when Hermione made her disdain for the class clear in their third year[4].

The girls do not seem to have disliked each other. In 1996, when Hermione was jealous of Lavender dating Ron Weasley, Parvati was noted to feel guilty over having laughed at Ron's cruel teasing of Hermione in Transfiguration, and the two girls discussed Hermione's attendance of the Slug Club Christmas party with Cormac McLaggen. Since Parvati looked "positively agog" at Hermione sharing this news with her[8], it can be assumed that Hermione seldom confided in her roommates.

Harry PotterEdit

Harry Potter, her Yule Ball date.

Parvati was not particularly close to Harry Potter, a Gryffindor in her year, but the two attended the 1994 Yule Ball together. Parvati was initially pleased with Harry as a date, since his fame gained her a lot of attention. However, Harry neglected to ask Parvati to dance and spent most of the ball staring at Cho Chang, which upset Parvati and led to her leaving his side for a boy from Beauxbatons.

Afterwards, Parvati treated Harry coolly[6], but this did not impact her decision to join Dumbledore's Army the following year[7]. In their sixth year, Parvati and Harry both found themselves rather annoyed by their friends' exhibitionist romance[8]. Both of these events may have also indicated her attitude towards Harry had mellowed back to a level of friendship, as she was also talking to him regularly during their O.W.L's.

Sybill TrelawneyEdit

Sybill Trelawney, her favourite teacher.

Parvati seemed to have a reasonably close relationship with Divination professor Sybill Trelawney; she had an unwavering faith in the reliability of Trelawney's predictions and was often seen comforting or supporting her when she was experiencing difficult times. She and Lavender became offended on the professor's behalf when Hermione made her disdain for Trelawney and the subject she taught clear in 1993. When she was temporarily sacked by Dolores Umbridge, Lavender and Parvati brought Trelawney some nice daffodils. Furthermore, Trelawney had told Parvati that she had the makings of a true seer.

Dumbledore's ArmyEdit

Dumbledore's Army

Dumbledore's Army.

Parvati became a member of Dumbledore's Army in her fifth year. It was an organisation founded by Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, and led by Harry, in order to teach students Defence Against the Dark Arts, something that the new professor, Dolores Umbridge, did not, as she believed that the students would use their magic to oppose the Ministry of Magic.

She was a friend of fellow members Ron Weasley, Dean Thomas and Seamus Finnigan. Dean and Seamus seemed to believe that Parvati and her sister, Padma, were the best-looking girls of their year. Furthermore, the romance between Ron and Lavender made both Parvati and Harry feel uncomfortable in 1996. She was also a friend of Neville Longbottom and defended him during their first year, when Pansy Parkinson insulted him.

Other members of the Dumbledore's Army were Fred and George Weasley, Ginny Weasley, Luna Lovegood, Lee Jordan, Angelina Johnson, Katie Bell, Alicia Spinnet, Colin and Dennis Creevey, Hannah Abbott, Ernie Macmillan, Susan Bones, Terry Boot, Justin Finch-Fletchley, Anthony Goldstein, Cho Chang, Michael Corner, Zacharias Smith and Marietta Edgecombe. Their relationship with Parvati is unknown.

EtymologyEdit

  • Pārvatī is the name of a Hindu goddess of love, consort of Shiva and daughter of the Himalayas. She was renowned for her beauty. Parvati translates into "she of the mountains" in Sanskrit. It may entirely be possible Parvati Patil's name, and her sister's, have been somewhat inspired by the model Padma Parvati Lakshmi. Padma and Parvati are also characters in Midnight's Children, by Salman Rushdie, the latter known mostly as Parvati-the-witch.
  • Patil is a common Marathi surname in the state of Maharashtra, India.

Notes and referencesEdit

  1. World Exclusive Interview with J K Rowling
  2. In Deathly Hallows, Ch. 29, Parvati was hiding out in the Room of Requirement with Dumbledore's Army before the members Neville summoned from outside the school began to arrive. This means she attended Hogwarts during the 1997-1998 school year, and must have been either half-blood or pure-blood, as Muggle-borns were banned from the school under Voldemort's regime.
  3. In "Chamber of Secrets" Professor Binns says her name wrong, most likely mixing her up with another student.
