|Loyalty||Order of the Phoenix|
Marlene McKinnon is a former member of the Order of the Phoenix who was killed along with her family.
Role in the Books
At the celebratory party at Grimmauld Place for Ron and Hermione's appointment as Prefects, Alastor Moody shows Harry a photograph of the original Order of the Phoenix. Marlene McKinnon is in that photo, and Moody says that she and her family had been killed by Death Eaters.
Relationships with Other Characters
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.
