Pippa Macmillan was a witch who began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1983 and was Sorted into Gryffindor.[3]


During her second year at Hogwarts, Pippa could be seen sitting with Ismelda Murk by the fountain in the Courtyard.

In her third year, during a full moon in late September or October, she was attacked by a white creature in the Forbidden Forest. Despite her memory of the incident being clouded by fear, she came to believe that it was a white Werewolf due to the claw-like scratches on her arm. She reported the attack and was treated by Madam Pomfrey in the Hospital Wing.[3]

She was later questioned about her experience by Chiara Lobosca and Jacob's sibling, and confessed to being unsure of the exact truth of the incident. The other students brewed her a Memory Potion to get to the bottom of the rumours going around the school. Though reluctant to relive the attack, she did take the potion and recalled that the creature was actually a white Hippogriff. It hadn't physically attacked her but had screamed at her, frightening her away. The scratches on her arm came from a tree branch that she had run into while running from it.[4]

Behind the scenes

  • Pippa's physical appearance is one of the often-seen NPCs in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.
  • Despite the fact that other dialogue in the "Chiara" Achievement is year adjusted, Pippa is still stated to be a third year regardless of the player's year.
  • She is a possible relative of Ernest Macmillan.
