Librarian at Hogwarts
Madam Irma Pince was the thin, irritable, aggressive librarian of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Although she was reluctant to let students touch the books, she would grudgingly assist those who asked her explicitly for help.
Personality and traitsEdit
Pince was an extremely able librarian, although she was very possessive of her books, brandishing her feather duster at students and interrogating them at random and showing great reluctance to release books from her care.
It was not a secret to the students of Hogwarts that Madam Pince and Argus Filch, the caretaker, shared romantic attraction and were in a relationship. The two attended Albus Dumbledore's funeral together and stood side by side in the Entrance Hall holding hands, he in an ancient, mothball-scented black suit and she in a black veil that fell to her knees.

- ↑ She is referred to as 'Madam' as opposed to 'Madame', which is only done for unmarried women; no ring is seen on her finger in the films; and the students suspect she is attracted to Argus Filch.
