Natsai "Natty"[3] Onai (b. 1874/1875) was a Zimbabwean witch who lived in the late 19th century. She originally attended Uagadou but later transferred to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where she was Sorted into Gryffindor house.[5] Her mother was a professor of Divination.[6]


Early life[]

As an only child, she grew up in Matabeleland, Africa, with a tribe, wandering the Matobo Hills with her father who was a giraffe Animagus, and watching her mother use divination to help protect their tribe from less-than-friendly neighbours. Her father was killed protecting her by local bandits when she was nine years old. She and her mother later moved to Uganda where she attended Uagadou. During such time, she learned to be an Animagus, learning to transform into a gazelle.

Just before her fourth year, she transferred to Hogwarts when her mother took up a role as professor of Divination.[7] She had to learn how to use a wand at Hogwarts, as hardly anyone at Uagadou used one, and Natsai still found wandless magic to be more instinctive and convenient.[9] It took her weeks to get anything right when she transferred but it kept getting easier.[10]

Fifth year[]

During the 1890–1891 school year, took Ancient Runes as an elective class, which her mother had chosen for her.[11]

On 2 September 1890, when the new fifth-year student arrived at Charms class, she invited them to sit beside her. They played a game of Summoner's Court together. At the end of the lesson, they briefly spoke to each other where she told the student she was impressed with their skills. However, Professor Abraham Ronen thought she appeared to be distracted recently.[10]

Personality and traits[]

Natsai was a fierce competitor and a gifted student.[12] According to Lenora Everleigh, she had a knack for solving riddles.[13]
