Marietta Character Analysis

A friend of Cho Chang's who unwillingly joins Dumbledore's Army. Harry is suspicious of her from the beginning, and these suspicions later prove correct: Marietta outs Harry and the other students to Umbridge. This results in Marietta suffering from Hermione's cursed membership list, which makes acne-like boils spelling "SNEAK" appear on Marietta's face. She wears a balaclava on the Hogwarts Express home, suggesting that nobody is able to remedy the curse.
