Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Jimmy Peakes
|Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter - Character|
Jimmy Peakes joins the Gryffindor team in Harry's sixth year. He is short and broad chested, and although three years younger than Harry he is strong and quite fierce.
Role in the Books
Jimmy Peakes tries out for the Gryffindor Quidditch team and is accepted as one of the two Beaters, the other being Ritchie Coote.
When Cormac McLaggen is put in as Keeper to replace the poisoned Ron Weasley, he does not seem to understand the difference between practice and a real game, and borrows Peakes' Beater's bat to demonstrate the proper way to hit a Bludger towards the approaching Cadwallader. Mis-hitting the Bludger, he knocks Harry out instead, and as a result Gryffindor suffer a horrible defeat.
Many underage Griffindors try to stay for the battle at Hogwarts, and Professor McGonagall must order them to leave; she calls out the names Creevy and Peakes when doing so.
