"I didn't get rid of the Bandon Banshee by smiling at her!"

--Gilderoy Lockhart (who didn't actually get rid of her at all) (CS6)

Gilderoy Lockhart claimed credit for defeating the Bandon Banshee (CS6), but she actually was defeated by a witch with a hairy chin (CS16, CS – Edits and Changes to the Text).



Formerly, the banisher of the Bandon Banshee was described by Lockhart as a witch with a harelip. In 2004 Bloomsbury officially amended the original text.
