"They passed a group of gloomy nuns, a ragged man wearing chains, and the Fat Friar, a cheerful Hufflepuff ghost, who was talking to a knight with an arrow sticking out of his forehead. Harry wasn't surprised to see that the Bloody Baron, a gaunt, staring Slytherin ghost covered in silver bloodstains, was being given a wide berth by the other ghosts."

These nuns were witches who, after their deaths, returned as ghosts.


On 31 October, 1992, they attended Sir Nicholas de Mimsy Porpington's five-hundredth Deathday party, where they stood around the dance floor.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • It is unknown if they resided at Hogwarts Castle or if they only came there to celebrate Sir Nicholas's Deathday.
