The Harry Potter Canon

"That they scored only ten goals is testimony to Paraison’s agility and courage."
-- Ginny Weasley's report on the Daily Prophet, 15 May 2014 (Pm)

Lenelle Paraison

Quidditch player, Keeper for the Haiti National Team (2014).

Paraison was one of only three female Keepers at the 2014 Quidditch World Cup tournament. She is a formidable Keeper, blocking two-thirds of Brazil's attempted goals in the Round of 16 match despite getting her nose broken twice (Pm).

Other canon notes and references

Since Viktor Krum, born 1976, was the oldest player at the tournament (Pm), Paraison must have been born after 1976.

Commentary
