I'm writing a fic for the spring challenge about an aprentice to Madam Malkin. So, naturally, I need serious help with Madam Malkin's characterisation. For instance, if greeted with a "Good Morning" what would her response be? If she knew of someone's blood-traitor secrets, would she spill the beans to the parents, even at risk of the said person life? What if that person were someone close to her?
Is she even pureblood? It isn't stated in the Lexicon....but purebloods do come to her for their robes...so...would she keep the secret if it meant losing buisness if it came out?
