Relationship to Albus´ parents

Kendra was muggle-born, so I think it is most likeley that Honoria is a paternal reletive.--Rodolphus 18:57, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

I agree, but we cannot completely rule out the possibility that Honoria was Kendra's sister, because Colin and Dennis Creevey demonstrate it's possible for more than one magical child to be born to Muggle parents. The only thing we can say for certain is that Honoria was related to Albus by blood, not marriage, because, as a spinster, she couldn't have been Albus' aunt through being the wife of either his mother or father's brother. There is even a small chance she was a Muggle, introduced to a wizard bachelor by her witch sister, but her familiarity with the term "hairy heart" strongly suggests she was a member of wizarding society.

In the British version of TOBTB Dumbledore calls her his maiden aunt. Doesn't that make her Kendra's sister? Jayce DarkmarkAvada KedavraCrucioImperio 10:18, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Jayce, you seem to be confusing "maiden" with "maternal." Maternal means related through ones mother, but maiden means unmarried. --Parodist 20:02, September 20, 2009 (UTC)

Blood Status

In the info box, Honoria's blood status is currently given as "Muggle-born or Half-blood (possibly)", and the footnote given to explain this reads, "As she is familiar with wizarding expressions". That doesn't make sense as a reason to rule out pure-blood as a possibility. If she's Percival's sister, she could potentially be pure-blood, in which case she would certainly be familiar with wizarding expressions.

As previously noted on this talk page, we don't know anything to rule out Honoria being Muggle-born or even a Muggle, so unless anyone objects, I'm going to change her blood status to unknown and remove the footnote.

Agreed. Since Honoria could potentially be any of the blood statuses known in canon, it would be superfluous listing them in the infobox, sort of like listing "brown, blue, grey, green, hazel, or black" under the eye colour field. Starstuff (Owl me!) 07:11, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
