Professor Trelawney Character Analysis

The Hogwarts Divination professor. She wears shawls and lots of jewelry that makes her look like an insect, and she works hard to make herself sound mysterious and all-knowing. Though Harry doesn't take most of Trelawney's predictions seriously (mostly because Trelawney predicts Harry's death on a weekly basis), he begins to suspect that there's more to her than he initially thought when her prediction from his last school year comes true: Voldemort returns after his servant, Wormtail, breaks free.
