This Female Student was sorted into Gryffindor House in the 1990s and befriended Parvati Patil, Cho Chang and a Gryffindor boy. In 1995, she joined Dumbledore's Army and practiced defensive magic while Dolores Umbridge refused to teach practical Defence Against the Dark Arts. While she walked to the Room of Requirement with her friends, she had her wand raised, ready for Slytherins, but was actually being followed by Mr. Argus Filch and Mrs. Norris.
Sometime in the 1980s or early 1990s, she came to be educated at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was Sorted into Gryffindor House. Her Head of House was Minerva McGonagall, the Transfiguration Professor. She also befriended Cho Chang and Parvati Patil.
In 1995, Dolores Umbridge became the Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher and refused to teach practical classes. In order to counter her, Dumbledore's Army was formed. She joined the group along with many other Gryffindors and was seen walking to the meetings with her wand raised. Unbeknownst to her, she was being followed by Argus Filch and Mrs. Norris, who were trying to discover what the group was up to.
One of the meetings that she attended was when Nigel Wolpert practiced Stupefy on Harry Potter, and later Hermione Granger on Ron Weasley. When Hermione threw Ron across the room, she was one of the students who laughed at him. She later fussed over, and laughed with, Hermione along with the other girls. She attended another meeting at Christmas, when Neville finally managed to perform the Disarming Charm, and she immediately stopped practicing and rushed to congratulate him. When Harry Potter decided that there would be no more meetings until after Christmas, she joined in the sighing and said something sadly to Padma Patil. However, she still joined in the clapping after Harry's speech on how well everyone had done.
While the Army practiced the Patronus Charm, Dolores Umbridge and the Inquisitorial Squad broke into the Room of Requirement and took everyone, including the Gryffindor girl, out of the room. Albus Dumbledore was later suspended and she watched as an Educational Decree declared Dolores Umbridge the new Head of Hogwarts.
