Character development[ edit ] Ginny Weasley is a pureblood witch born on 11 August Rowling, "the backstory with Ginny was, she was the first girl to arrive in the Weasley family in generations, but there's that old tradition of the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter and a seventh son of a seventh son, so that's why she's the seventh, because she is a gifted witch. I think you get hints of that, because she does some pretty impressive stuff here and there". In a joint interview with The Leaky Cauldron and Mugglenet , Rowling revealed that she "always knew" that Ginny and Harry "were going to come together and then part. Rowling stated that Harry "needs to be with someone who can stand the demands of being with Harry Potter, because he's a scary boyfriend in a lot of ways. After realizing Harry's identity, Ginny asks her mother if she can board the Hogwarts Express to see him.
While this does happen from time to time, it might be hard for Ron to look Harry in the eye knowing just how much of his sister his lifelong pal has seen. From Hagrid, the lovable half-giant Hogwarts groundskeeper, to the awe-inspiring school headmaster Albus Dumbledore, Rowling has managed to place some of her creations among the likes of Gandalf the Gray and Darth Vader in terms of pop-culture prominence. However, Ginny Weasley is hardly among the most memorable characters from the series, and she was essentially a background character until the very end of the published franchise. Her reputation as a non-entity was worsened by her portrayal in the movies, though the criticism holds water regardless. Is she still a sleeper agent for the Dark Lord?
Who knows how much good it did her, seeing as she got a target on her back all the same. Even so, the pair were actually broken up during the Battle of Hogwarts. They could barely stand being parted during The Deathly Hallows so that could indicate a relatively quick reunion.
