Role in the Books edit

Beginner warning: Details follow which you may not wish to read at your current level.

Philosopher's Stone edit

Hannah Abbott is the first student called up to be Sorted; the Sorting Hat places her in Hufflepuff.

Chamber of Secrets edit

Hannah Abbott, here identified only as Hannah, is one of the group of Hufflepuffs discussing Justin Finch-Fletchley's decision to remain in hiding when Harry Potter is thought to be the Heir of Slytherin, in The Duelling Club.

After Hermione Granger is petrified like Justin, Hannah and Erine both apologise to Harry for suspecting him during an Herbolgoy lesson, knowing he would never attack her, and work with him and Ron.

Prisoner of Azkaban edit

At one point in their third year, Hannah was convinced that Sirius Black could turn into a flowering shrub, which in hindsight is less silly than it might sound at first.

Goblet of Fire edit

House loyalty had Hannah wearing a Support Cedric Diggory! badge early in the Triwizard Tournament. Despite occasional incidents like this, she and Ernie are on friendly terms with Harry, Ron, and Hermione.

Order of the Phoenix edit

Both Hannah and Ernie became prefects in August of Harry's fifth year.

Hannah is one of the students present at the initial meeting, in the Hog's Head, of the group that becomes Dumbledore's Army.

It is mentioned that Hannah Abbott, at Easter break some six weeks before the OWL exams, is looking frantic and checking stacks of books out of the library.

Hannah had the unhappy distinction of being the first of Harry's year to crack under the strain of O.W.L. study, requiring a Calming Draught from Madam Pomfrey after she broke down crying in Herbology, saying she was too stupid to take her exams.

While Harry is taking his transfiguration O.W.L, Hannah somehow manages to turn her ferret into a flock of flamingos, postponing the exam for ten minutes.

Hannah is also one of the six members of Dumbledore's Army who see Draco Malfoy attempting to jinx Harry on the Hogwarts Express, and promptly return fire, leaving Draco, Crabbe, and Goyle looking like gigantic slugs squeezed into Hogwarts robes.

Half-Blood Prince edit

In this book, Hannah's mother is killed by a rumoured Death Eater, and she leaves the school for most of the term after being told this in a Herbology class.

Deathly Hallows edit

Harry sees a grave marked "Abbott" in Godric's Hollow and wonders aloud whether the person was one of Hannah's relatives. The question is never answered, but it serves to remind us of Hannah's mother having recently been killed by Death Eaters.

As Harry is on his way to the Room of Requirement, where he now believes Rowena Ravenclaw's lost diadem is hidden, he passes Fred Weasley, Lee Jordan, and Hannah Abbott guarding a hole behind a plinth where a statue had fallen. The statue had previously been masking one of the secret passages into Hogwarts.

As the renewed battle rages, Harry from under the Invisibility Cloak, casts Shield spells in the path of Voldemort's curses. Voldemort's intended victims, Hannah and Seamus, run past and into the Great Hall.

Strengths edit


Weaknesses edit

OWL exams make her worry to no end.

She is easily swayed by people's opinions

Relationships with Other Characters edit

She is most often seen in the company of Justin Finch-Fletchley and Ernie Macmillan.

In an interview given following the publication of the final book in the series, the author said that Abbott marries Neville Longbottom, and becomes the new landlady of the Leaky Cauldron.
