Biography

Ethan Parkin was born at some point in around the late 1940s or early 1950s.[1] He attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1960s, and played on the Quidditch team of his house. In the 19661967 school year, he played in the highest-scoring Quidditch match in Hogwarts history, and his team won the match.[5]

His daughter, Skye, played Chaser as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, in the 1980s.[4]

He was injured in a Quidditch match against the Montrose Magpies, resulting in Skye temporarily leaving Hogwarts to check on her father and keep him company as he recovered.[6] Fortunately, Ethan was recovering rather rapidly.[7]

He came to watch Skye's first house match, and expected to see a Parkin's Pincer.[8] After the match, he gave his daughter a new Comet 260.[3]

In the 1986–1987 school year, Ethan Parkin came to Hogwarts during the final match of the Quidditch Cup. His arrival overshadowed the match.[5]

Notes and references

  1. 1.0 1.1 In Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, Year 3, Quidditch Season 2, Time-Limited Side Quest "The Second Quidditch Cup", Albus Dumbledore mentions Ethan Parkin led his house team to victory twenty years earlier. As Quidditch Season 2 is in the 1986–1987 school year, twenty years before that was the 19661967 school year. As such, Ethan most likely started attending Hogwarts at some point between 1960 and 1965 in order to be in his second to seventh year.
