Ginny Weasley Character Analysis

The youngest Weasley child and the only girl; she's a fourth year this year. Over the summer, Ginny joins Fred and George in trying to listen in on Order of the Phoenix meetings and later, she's a proud member of Dumbledore's Army. On the train to Hogwarts, Ginny demonstrates how kind she is when she encourages everyone to sit with Luna Lovegood, whom Ginny insists is fine, just a bit strange. Ginny takes over at the position of Seeker when Umbridge bans Harry from playing Quidditch and is surprisingly good; Hermione reveals that Ginny has spent her entire childhood stealing her brothers' brooms and practicing in secret. An accomplished witch, Ginny insists on accompanying Harry to the Department of Mysteries and she's an instrumental figure in fighting the Death Eaters and getting Harry's group out alive. For the first time in the series, Ginny is able to interact normally with Harry because, after years of nursing a crush on him, she begins dating a Ravenclaw named Michael Corner. She begins dating Dean Thomas at the end of the school year.
