Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Adrian Pucey
|Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter - Character|
Overview[edit | edit source]
Adrian Pucey is on the Slytherin Quidditch team. He is a student, significantly older than Harry, but little described. We never seem to see him except as part of the Slytherin Quidditch team.
Role in the Books[edit | edit source]
Adrian Pucey is mentioned as being one of the Chasers on the Slytherin Quidditch team. While he manages several shots on goal, he does not succeed in scoring against Oliver Wood.
Adrian Pucey is mentioned twice as being on the Slytherin Quidditch team, apparently still as a Chaser, as at one point we see him trying to score against Wood. Harry can't spare much attention for him, as he is trying to avoid a rogue bludger, so we do not see much else of what is going on.
Adrian Pucey is not mentioned as being on the Slytherin Quidditch team in the final, although as Marcus Flint has evidently changed the line-up to favour brawn over skill, it's likely Pucey has been sidelined. In this match, Flint, Warrington, and Montague are mentioned as being Chasers, Derrick and Bole as Beaters, Draco Malfoy as Seeker, and the Keeper is never named.
Quidditch being suspended for the year because of the Triwizard Tournament, Pucey does not play any role in this book.
Harry takes part in only one Quidditch match, again against Slytherin. In this match, Pucey, Warrington, and Montague are mentioned as being Chasers, Crabbe and Goyle as Beaters, Draco Malfoy as Seeker, and Miles Bletchley as Keeper. Pucey scores several times against Ron, who is Keeper for Gryffindor.

Analysis[edit | edit source]
Adrian Pucey is notable for being one of the few Slytherin Quidditch players who has not committed a foul during a game or attacked an opposing player outside the game, despite having played Quidditch in three books and at least five years.
