40 Random Facts

One random fact about each of Al's classmates. Message me if you want to know anything else about a particular character and I still plan to write a short story for each of them.

1. Gabriel Ollivander is the grandson of the famous Garrick Ollivander.
2. Momoka Kubo’s parents sent her to Hogwarts because the Dean of Mahoutokoro had a personal vow of never letting any Kubo into his school because Momoko’s mother married her father over the Dean.
3. Nicholas Hillyard is so poor all of his books have been old family books as he is unable to buy even many used books—every year he hasn’t had all his required books.
4. Lucy Weasley had like Leofric for quite some time but would never had asked him out or even let on how she felt if he hadn’t asked her out. That is why, despite Rose’s advice, she had agreed to date him.
5. Darach Maher had worked on his family farm since he was born, which is why could identify with Noah so well because they were so alike; except Noah was rich.
6. Asther Powell had read every book of her parents’ small collection of about 30 books by the time she was 4. She had more than triple the amount of books her parents did by the time she was 6.
7. Scorpius Malfoy had like Rose since 3rd year, but of course had never told her because that would make things awkward in their friendship. Then, that one moment in 6th year changed everything and any thoughts of Rose were gone and replaced by Lily.

9. Lyta Buchanan is rumoured to be a descendant of Circe.

14. Murtagh Alkalev’s great grandfather’s family fled Bolshevik Russia to France and then his grandfather moved to England.
15. Terrance Baddock was gay but hadn’t told anyone, including his parents or roommates. Of course that is until he asked Alex out.
16. Jewelle Reis’ family were strong Roman Catholics. When her grandmother found out her mother and Jewelle were witches she swore to never speak to either them or Jewelle’s father again. Jewelle found it hard not to attend Mass on Sunday’s while at Hogwarts as she was determined to be a good Roman Catholic and prove to her grandmother she could be a witch and be faithful to God.
17. Nia Lynch had dated Joey--until Hufflepuff lost the Quidditch cup to Gryffindor in 5th year that is.
