Chie Shinohara was a Gryffindor student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1990s. She was seen walking around the school during the 1993-1994 school year.


Chie is a Japanese female given name, which means "wisdom". Shinohara is Japanese surname, which means "plain of bamboo grass".
