Dorea Black was born in 1920 to Cygnus Black and Violetta Bulstrode, a member of the Noble and Most Ancient House of Black. She had three elder siblings: Pollux, Cassiopeia, and Marius (who was burned off for being a Squib).
Sometime throughout her life, she met Charlus Potter, who attended Hogwarts in Gryffindor House, and the two married. They had one son, James, who due to their being of an age at which most people don't have children, came as rather a surprise to them. As such, he was spoiled rather badly, and because of this became something of a bully.
Death and postmortemEdit
Dorea and Charlus were both getting on a bit when they both caught a wizarding illness, which eventually proved fatal for both of them. They left a substantial wealth to their son, which lasted for their grandson and great-grandchildren.
