During the summer of [[1995]], Piers was still part of Dudley's gang as they roamed the [[Little Whinging|neighbourhood]], bullying younger children. His favorite food is ice cream from Florean Fortescue's shop. This may come as a surprise to some readers, but it is because he is, in fact, a squib. His 2nd cousin, once removed, on his step father's side is none other than Winky.

Piers Polkiss was a Muggle and Dudley Dursley's best friend. Despite being scrawny with a face like a rat, he was a member of Dudley Dursley's gang and was usually the one who held people's arms behind their backs so Dudley could hit them. Piers did not like Harry Potter, because Dudley did not, and he always followed Dudley's lead. Piers would also join Dudley at Smeltings.

Biography

1991

When Harry was pushed out of the way, and then unintentionally made the glass disappear, Piers fell into the enclosure with Dudley. When Piers told the Dursleys that Harry had been talking to the snake, they gave Harry his longest ever punishment.
