Welcome to the Legion!

Dolores Umbridge

The brand new Harry Potter story from J.K. Rowling is live on Pottermore! Fans are finally getting a peek into the world of the evil Dolores Umbridge. She also revealed that the character is based on a real person. “The woman in question returned my antipathy with interest,” Rowling wrote. “Why we took against each other so instantly, heartily and (on my side, at least) irrationally, I honestly cannot say.”

The real-life Umbridge even wore creepily cute accessories. “I particularly recall a tiny little plastic bow slide, pale lemon in color that she wore in her short curly hair,” she writes.

Guess what? The notoriously holier-than-thou Umbridge was a half-blood witch and her brother was a Squib! Protested too much, didn’t she? Head over and read this Halloween treat from Rowling and let us know what you think!

Happy Halloween!
