Still, darker times lay ahead. She was the colleague whom she had more violently clashed with than any other colleague in her long and varied career. It is a learned, rather than hereditary skill, unlike those of a Metamorphmagus. McGonagall was very angry by Crouch's teaching methods and shouted at him. This was due to him being obnoxious, incompetent and insensitive, annoying her with nonsensical advices while being ignorant and unhelpful around the second opening of the Chamber of Secrets. [6] She voiced pride in Neville's courage in participating in the fight with the Death Eaters in the Department of Mysteries. [10] During the Battle of Hogwarts on 2 May, 1998, Minerva and Pomona had the same views on protecting the Castle against Lord Voldemort's Death Eaters. “Is something wrong?” she asked, starting to turn in order to see what Snape was looking at. As a child, Minerva helped her mother conceal from her father the accidents and embarrassments the young witch's magic sometimes caused. Despite her clear disapproval of Malfoy's pure-blood supremacist leanings, McGonagall sought to protect him as much as every other student, being completely appalled when Alastor Moody (Barty Crouch Jnr in disguise) transformed Draco into a ferret in 1994. He glanced around the office - the kitten must have got back in unnoticed, by whatever route it used, while he was still working to protect the rooms. Human[3] [10], After her recovery at St Mungo's, Minerva resumed her duties within the Order of the Phoenix as well as her teaching duties when the school year would begin again after summer. Female[3] While overseeing the annual Sorting ceremony, however, where she saw the sorting of among others Daniel Page, Colby Frey, Lottie Turner and Robyn Thistlethwaite into their respective houses, it quickly became clear that one of the new students, a girl by the name of Ivy Warrington, was missing from the group. [1], Minerva was quickly recognised as the most outstanding student of her year with a particular talent for Transfiguration. Black[5] [10], However, by the time of the second wizarding war, Minerva was no longer prepared to act as a spy for a Ministry she believed had become corrupt and dangerous. “Considering where they were found,” McGonagall explained, “it seems clear that they belong to Slytherin students.” She thrust the bundle into his hand. However, when Draco was proven to have led a group of Death Eaters into the castle, Minerva came to see him as much an enemy as any Death Eater, until after the war, where Draco was pardoned. He had expected that perhaps a rat or mouse had found its way in, but there was no sign of any creature. [8], For the most part, though, Minerva usually maintained great emotional composure, without being indifferent. And now it would force him to make an unnecessary trip outside. Harry was therefore again placed under the watchful eye and care of McGonagall. [6], Gryffindor wins the Quidditch Cup in 1994, In the spring of 1994, though disgusted by the Slytherin Quidditch team's dirty tactics during the final Quidditch match after witnessing Draco Malfoy grab onto the end of Harry's Firebolt to stop him from catching the Golden Snitch (which infuriated her to the point where she stopped telling Lee Jordan off and actually joined him in firing furious comments at Malfoy), she witnessed the Gryffindor Quidditch team win the Quidditch Cup for the first time since Charlie Weasley had played for the team during his Hogwarts education. He unlocked the inner door, which led to his bedroom, and went in to prepare for bed.

Although shocked by Harry's sudden appearance and his use of an Unforgivable Curse, she was clearly touched by the gesture. This was most likely to make sure as little harm came to students, since she could act as an insider so that the Order of the Phoenix was informed on what was going on at Hogwarts. After Voldemort infiltrated Hogwarts, two new professors took the post of Muggle Studies and Defence Against the Dark Arts: Alecto and Amycus Carrow respectively. However, several incidents marred the year. Occupation These months were to prove some of the most difficult of Minerva’s life. Minerva was called upon to fix the situation, but Leta ran from her and Minerva was forced to chase her around the school, all the while docking points (Minerva ended up docking a total of 200 points). She also wanted to keep Harry out of the explanation the imposter was about to give, believing Harry had had enough, but reluctantly conceded to Dumbledore's wish that Harry stay. [14], McGonagall and other members of staff discover the declaration, Later, Minerva was present for the re-opening of the Chamber of Secrets. Snape headed back down to the dungeons, making a mental note to check his rooms for whatever route the kitten was managing to get in. Like Snape, McGonagall was a strict disciplinarian, but was fairer to Harry Potter, who was a member of her House. But after James' death, she, the rest of the wizarding community, assumed it was Sirius who betrayed the Potters since he was expected to be their Secret-Keeper. After the First Wizarding War had ended, Minerva continued on with her career at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, carrying on teaching the art of Transfiguration. In the films, McGonagall appears to be older than she is described in the books. She also pitied him for being unable to go to Hogsmeade due to not having a signed note and appeared to indicate she would be willing to allow him to go had it not been for the danger of Sirius. The rebel alliance Dumbledore's Army founded by the students reformed and McGonagall helped to keep their meetings a secret. She also wore a pointed hat cocked to one side. This grief was enough to make her duel Voldemort head on in the final battle, alongside Horace Slughorn and Kingsley Shacklebolt, in order to protect the rest of her students. When Cornelius Fudge brought Aurors to arrest Dumbledore in 1996, she boldly stepped forward and announced her intention to fight the Aurors on his behalf. She first asked if Jacob's sibling had seen him in the Hogwarts Express and if he had been acting strange and after learning that they didn't but Penny Haywood did and Ben seemed fine even though he was always a bit odd. That was not to say that her troubles was over, however, as The Calamity hit the school itself next, spiriting off with the Sorting Hat, one of the Thestrals in Hogwart's herd, one of their carriages, one of their boats, a Winged Boar Statue and even the sign directing people between Hogwarts Castle and Hogsmeade Village; all of which the same diligent individual was able to retrieve and return to their allotted places, much to the delight of the denizens of Hogwarts Castle. She kept a close eye on Harry from time to time during his early childhood, as did the members of the Order of the Phoenix. [8], McGonagall protecting students during Snape's regime, When the door opened, they found Alecto unconscious on the floor, which Minerva surmised as the work of a Stunning Spell. Lord Voldemort[7] When Minerva was attacked by several Ministry employees outside of Hagrid's Hut, Hermione showed deep emotion towards the event, like Minerva did a few years before. He moved the lamp, trying to catch the reflection of the kitten's eyes, but there was nothing. He and McGonagall were allies during the Battle of the Astronomy Tower and the Battle of Hogwarts, surviving the Second Wizarding War. McGonagall and the Weasleys get along well, considering they were all in Gryffindor House and fellow members of the Order of the Phoenix. [26], Following the outbreak of the Calamity and the establishment of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, several faculty members at Hogwarts was happy to lend them a hand in addressing the catastrophe. The atmosphere at Hogwarts continued to devolve under Umbridge's leadership. When Umbridge revealed that anti-Muggle prankster Willy Widdershins had provided her with testimony that Harry was forming this rebel group, Minerva loudly voiced that she had wondered why he had managed to avoid prosecution for all his regurgitating toilet charges, joined in her vocal outrage by the portrait of Headmaster Dexter Fortescue. McGonagall was delighted by Gryffindor's victory, openly sobbing — even louder than the already sobbing Oliver Wood — into a Gryffindor Flag, but was upset to see Oliver Wood leaving. They were loyal Death Eaters, and befitting their status, they taught Dark Arts rather than Defence Against the Dark Arts, devoted Muggle Studies to explaining how Muggles were filthy animals, and often took delight in punishing students with the Cruciatus Curse. She had black hair which was rarely let down, and the majority of the time was combed back into a tight bun. [18], With the conclusion of the war, Professor McGonagall was awarded the Order of Merlin, First Class, by Minister for Magic Kingsley Shacklebolt for her unwavering allegiance to the Order of the Phoenix, as well as being featured on a Chocolate Frog Card, the latter of which were an accolade she admitted she had never imagined receiving.
