"I dare not, Headmaster! If I join the table, we shall be thirteen! Nothing could be more unlucky! Never forget that when thirteen dine together, the first to rise will be the first to die!"
Sybill Trelawney describes the misfortune attributed to the number thirteen[src]

Thirteen was a number that was considered by members of both the magical and non-magical communities to be unlucky and to be the cause of suffering and misfortune.[1]
