Jae Kim (born c.1972/1973) was a wizard who began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1984 and was Sorted into Gryffindor.

Biography

Hogwarts years (1984-1991)

In his second year, Jae was hit with a hex cast by Merula Snyde.[4]

In his third year, Jae took Care of Magical Creatures[5] and Divination[6] as electives.

In his fifth year, Jae had Defence Against the Dark Arts[2] and History of Magic[7] classes with Jacob's sibling.

Jae had to work in the Hogwarts kitchens for detention due to bringing banned items to Hogwarts. In detention, he befriended Jacob's sibling and gave one of three items to them for free. Afterward, the two went to study in the Hogwarts Library along with Rowan Khanna, Tulip Karasu, and Barnaby Lee to figure out what kind of spell could have caused Beatrice Haywood to get stuck in a portrait. After the group came to the conclusion that it was due to an Undetectable Extension Charm, Jae shocked the rest by knowing about the regulations of the charm.[8]

Jae earned at least eight[9] O.W.L.s: he achieved an Acceptable mark in Charms, Potions, Transfiguration, Care of Magical Creatures, Herbology, and History of Magic, an Outstanding in Defence Against the Dark Arts[10], and an unknown mark in Divination. Sometime during the year, he became a founding member of the Circle of Khanna, a group devoted to avenging Rowan Khanna and locating the final cursed vault. It was at the groups first meeting in the Hog's Head Inn that he learned of the malevolent organisation "R" and it's motives to locate the final Cursed Vault before them.[11]
