Sir Nicholas: "She was a student in your brother's year. I remember her for her exemplary bravery."
Jacob's sibling: "Was she a Gryffindor?"
Sir Nicholas: "You would think so, but she was actually a Ravenclaw.... You should pay a visit to the Grey Lady..."
Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington to Jacob's sibling[src]

Professor Olivia Green was a witch who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the second half of the 20th century and was sorted into Ravenclaw. She was friends with Jacob, who was in her year.[4]

She later joined the Hogwarts faculty after graduation, becoming the school's Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher in the 1990–1991 school year.[3]

Biography

Hogwarts education

Olivia started attending Hogwarts the same year as Jacob, where she was sorted into Ravenclaw.[4]

During the 1988–1989 school year, Jacob's sibling found a letter written to Olivia Green from Jacob in Jacob's room, where Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington informed them about her, and how according to him, possessed exceptional courage. He then told them to seek the Grey Lady for more answers about her.[4]

Defence Against the Dark Arts Professor (1990–1991)

Professor Green introducing herself to students in Classroom 3C

Sometime after her graduation, in the middle of the 1990–1991 school year, Olivia was appointed the school's new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher as her predecessor left Hogwarts without a word. When she introduced herself to seventh-years at the start of a lesson in Classroom 3C, she told them that she wanted to be addressed as "Olivia" rather than "Professor Green".[3]

However, by the end of the year, Olivia needed to be replaced because of Lord Voldemort's jinx on the post.[5]

Notes and references

  1. She was in the same school year as Jacob, whose year of birth range is given as this. However, if Jacob was 17 on 31 October 1981 and had his birthday in September or October, it is possible he was a sixth year when expelled, making 1965 a possible year of birth for Olivia.
