Biography

Hestia Carrow Slug Club Christmas Party

Hestia at the Slug Club Christmas party

Hestia was sorted into Slytherin House along with her identical twin sister, Flora, at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at the age of eleven, and became a member of the Slug Club in the 1996–1997 school year. [3]

Hestia and her sister were seemingly quiet at Slug Club meetings, and both had a fondness for the colour green, which they wore not only as part of their House robes, but by their choosing, as reflected by the formal dresses they wore to the Slug Club Christmas party.

The twins in the Great Hall

At the beginning of The Battle of Hogwarts, Hestia and her sister were seen departing to the Dings. It is not known if she lived through the battle, though it is highly likely given that her and her sister's natures are not battle-oriented, and thus they would likely have fled at the first chance.

Etymology

"Hestia" comes from the Greek Ἑστία (estía, meaning "hearth"). Hestia is the Greek goddess of the hearth, architecture, the right ordering of domesticity, the family, and the state. She is therefore one of the more mighty Greek deities.
