Skye Parkin was a Scottish witch who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1980s and played on an unknown Quidditch team.

Biography

Skye was born as a member of the Parkin family, which was famous for Quidditch. Her father, Ethan Parkin, was considered a Quidditch legend, and her ancestors founded the Wigtown Wanderers.

During her time at Hogwarts, Skye was Sorted into an unknown house. At some point during her time at school, she became a Chaser of her house's Quidditch team.[5]

During the first practise match of the term, Skye saved Jacob's sibling from getting hit by a Bludger that was heading towards the stands. However, while she saved them, her play cost her team by letting the opposing Seeker to win, and knocking out her team's Chaser for the season.

Jacob's sibling was convinced by Penny Haywood to pursue the vacant Chaser position. However, to make the team and earn a tryout invitation, training was needed, so Skye was sought out. After being exposed by Rubeus Hagrid about her inexperience, Skye opened about her weakness - Charms, because it was her worst subject. With an exam in that class due the next day and doubtful of the sibling's ability in the subject, Skye initially turned down their offer to tutor her. Although reluctant, Skye agreed to take the sibling under her wing in return for promising an immediate charms lesson.

However, a windy day on the pitch meant that the lesson had to be cut short - the pages Skye torn out of her textbook had to be caught by her trainee before they blew away. Regardless, Skye gave Jacob's sibling a Quidditch lesson of her own, seeing if they were able to mount a hexed broom. Worried that she might be wasting time in lieu of keeping up to her family and her teachers' expectations, Skye called off the lesson early. She explained that she was pressured by her father to win the Hogwarts Quidditch Cup for her house. Taking into account how Jacob's sibling displayed natural Quidditch instincts while collecting the stray pages and mounting the hexed broom, Skye realised they could be the other chaser her team needs to make the prospects of her house winning the cup a reality. Encouraged, she continued to serve as a mentor for the potential chaser.

After teaching the sibling the Quidditch move her ancestors developed - the Parkin's Pincer, Skye received the news that her father had been injured in an match against the Montrose Magpies and was in hospital, prompting her to return home temporarily to check on Ethan and keep him company as he recovered. She assured Jacob's sibling that they would get a tryout invitation by the time she came back to school. Later, it was made clear that Skye would not be gone long, as her father was making a speedy recovery.

With her father getting better, Skye returned back to Hogwarts just in time for tryouts. She, the captain Orion Amari and Jacob's sibling together played one final practise match before tryouts were to begin.

Personality and traits

Skye was a courageous yet competitive girl, given she had to carry Parkin's lofty standard as a Quidditch family. She was also good at multitasking, given that her family travelled often. For this reason, Skye preferred to travel light. To do achieve this, she tended to tear off pages in books, the problem being that a gust of wind can result in the pages scattering and becoming lost. Due to the pressure of both her family to succeed in Quidditch and her professors to excel in her classes, Skye was academically poor, especially in Charms, but began to improve with the help of Jacob's sibling.

Additionally, she is still on the team in Quidditch Season 3, meaning she was still attending Hogwarts during the 1987–1988 school year.
