Relationships with Other Characters[edit]

We really know very little about Marlene McKinnon; possibly because of her obscurity, fans often try to force her into a relationship with many other characters. This practice, known as "shipping", results in fan-created fiction that pairs her most often with Sirius Black, in the belief that they have, or ought to have, similar personalities.
