Violet Tillyman[1] was a witch, wife first to Albert Tillyman and then to Myron Otherhaus, although the latter relationship was illicit[1]. She lived in the nineteenth century, and her disappearance in 1855 became the most notorious instance of accidental misdirection in the history of the Floo Network[1]. She was posthumously depicted in a portrait, which hung in a chamber off the Great Hall at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry[2].


Early lifeEdit

Violet was born into a wizarding family and presumably attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry sometime in her youth; it is unknown which house she was in if she did attend.

First marriageEdit

After completing her wizarding education, she met Albert Tillyman, an aggressive and suspicious man and a bit of a bully[1]. Somehow, the two ended up married, but rowed frequently[1]. Despite this, they managed to hold their relationship together for a short bit of time[1].


Soon enough, however, their nastiest row yet led to Violet leaping into the fireplace with a handful of Floo Powder and demanding through her hiccoughs and sobs to be taken to her mother's house[1]. She did not speak clearly enough, however, and ended up tumbling out of the fireplace of a rather handsome wizard called Myron Otherhaus, who lived in Bury St Edmunds[1].


She managed to remain hidden for nearly twenty years even after a search party had been sent out and a series of ads were placed in the Daily Prophet[1]. She and Myron had seven children together, and after Albert's death she revealed herself to the public once more; she, Myron and their children lived happily ever after[1]; that is, until she died[2].


After her death, a portrait of Violet was hung at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in a large and magnificent chamber off of the Great Hall[2], depicting her in a blue silk dress and a matching hat[3]. She became good friends with the Fat Lady, the guardian of Gryffindor Tower; the two enjoyed gossiping together, and drank too much on special occasions.

Physical appearanceEdit

In her later life, Violet became extremely pallid and wrinkled, looking quite wizened[2]. In her portrait, she wore a light-blue witch's hat and a matching dress[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Violet died sometime between 1875 and 1994.
