|Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter - Character|
Demelza Robins joins the Gryffindor Quidditch team as a Chaser.
Role in the Books
Demelza Robins is one of three Chasers that Harry puts on the Gryffindor Quidditch team after a series of try-outs. The other two are Katie Bell and Ginny Weasley. This seems to be something of a tradition; in Harry's first through third years, all the Gryffindor chasers were girls as well.
A little later, she delivers a message from Professor Snape to Harry about a detention.
Amongst the team changes due to illness and detention, Demelza is the only Chaser who plays against all three other houses. Katie Bell is sidelined by a cursed necklace for two matches, and Ginny becomes Seeker when Harry is put into detention by Snape.
Demelza is mentioned in passing as being one of the defenders in the battle at Hogwarts.
Demelza is quite adept at Quidditch, having a knack for dodging Bludgers and for making tricky shots. She is known to work well with the other Chasers and is friendly with the Beaters. Other than her Quidditch ability, Demelza's strengths and skills are largely unknown. She fought in the Battle of Hogwarts and must have been both brave and cunning to do so as Professor McGonagall was not allowing underage students to take part. This she seems to have ignored, as did Colin Creevey, proving bravery and a possible disregard for rules.
Like her strengths, Demelza's weaknesses are largely unknown. However, it can be noted that she is rather sensitive, succumbing to tears on occasion, generally because of Ron.
Relationships with Other Characters
Demelza is rarely seen outside of Quidditch games, where her relationships would be on a teammates level. We don't see enough of her outside Quidditch games and practices to get any feeling for how she would relate to other students.
