Johnson, Angelina Gryffindor Quidditch Dumbledore's Army

(b. October 1977)

Gryffindor (1989- 1996) Quidditch Chaser, captain (1995 - 1996).

A tall black girl (GF16) and an excellent Quidditch player (PS11); born in October, the week before Hallowe'en (GF16). She put her name in for the Triwizard Tournament but wasn’t chosen (GF16), and went to the Yule Ball with Fred Weasley (GF22, GF23). Angelina became Quidditch captain in 1995 (OP12), which stressed her out and gave her something of a mean streak (OP13).

Later in life, Angelina married George Weasley and had two children, Fred and Roxanne (YL).

Gwenog Jones, copyright LightmakerJones, Gwenog Quidditch Member of the "Slug Club." Chocolate Frog Card

(b. 1968)

Hogwarts (1979- 1986).
Captain and Beater of the only all-female professional Quidditch team, the Holyhead Harpies. After a game she enjoys relaxing with friends, drinking butterbeer, and listening to The Weird Sisters (fw). It has been said of Jones that "people who disagree with [her] have a nasty habit of turning into woodlice." She herself says that the Harpies "are easily the most exciting team playing," and added that witches make better Quidditch players than wizards. It is doubtful that anyone will disagree with her to her face (DP). Gwenog was a favorite of Horace Slughorn's while at Hogwarts. She was a member of his Slug Club. She still sends Slughorn free tickets to see the Harpies play whenever he wants them. He even invited her to one of his parties while back at Hogwarts during the 1996 - 1997 school year, and Hermione met Gwenog there (HBP14).

"Wizard of the Month" for June 2004 on JK Rowling's website (JKR).

Jones, Hestia Order of the Phoenix

Jones, Megan Hufflepuff

Hufflepuff 1991 - 1998.

Megan's name appears in the draft of the classlist of Harry's year that Jo displayed during the "Harry Potter and Me" TV interview (HPM). She is half-blood. Megan has never appeared in canon, but her name is listed here because she apparently existed in early plans for the books. [Essay on the classlist]
