Can someone help me decode miss Alicia? I'm having some trouble using her, because she was so uninvolved in most of the story lines for the books she was featured in. Also, was she one or two years older than the Trio? I just need to know a few basic things about her so that I can stay true to her character when writing her.
I wrote about Alicia about six months ago. This is what I can remember:
She is two years above the trio. She's a Gryffindor, and was discovered by Oliver Wood to play chaser on the Gryffindor Quidditch Team. She's shown as being good friends with Angelina Johnson, and Katie Bell, who is in the year below her.
In CoS she is horrified that Malfoy calls Hermione a Mudblood, and shouts at him. She's a member of Dumbledore's Army and I'm pretty sure she returns for the Battle Of Hogwarts.
That is all, canonically, that we know (I think). Apart from that, you have free rein :)
Thanks so much for your help! I really needed a little bit more information on her before I proceeded to write for the challenge I'm doing. Thanks again!
Adding to what Alex said, Alicia was a reserve Chaser in her second year, so the first year Harry plays is also her first year playing (as well as Katie Bell's). Not sure if that adds anything to your story, but it's possible she was wistful of jealous of Angelina, Fred and George, who all started playing in their second year.
Thanks so much for your help, guys! It is certainly appreciated :)
