I have a few questions concerning Marlene .
Firstly, how close do you think she was to the Marauders/Lily? Lily mentions crying over Marlene's death, but...maybe I'm imagining it, or reading into things, but I thought she would have been more sad if she was actually a close friend of Marlene's.
Was Marlene even in the same year as the Marauders &co?
The McKinnons were named as some of the "best" wizards and witches, skill-wise, but does that necessarily mean that they were older?
We know she was in the Order, but was she an Auror? Side note on this one...this may seem like a stupid question, but were all Order members Aurors? I didn't think so, but that does seem to be the trend.
Has JKR mentioned what House she was in? Blood status? I forget if the McKinnons were an old, prestigious family or not.
Thank you much!
