The Hogwarts Divination professor. Harry describes her as looking like a "glittering insect," as she wears lots of jewelry and drapes herself in scarves. An eccentric woman, most people at Hogwarts don't take her (or Divination, for that matter) seriously and believe that she's a fraud. Hermione is the most vocal in this regard and, in the spring, walks out of Trelawney's class. Lavender and Parvati, however, take Trelawney very seriously and note that all the predictions she makes come true--Trelawney predicts that a member of the class will leave around Easter, and Lavender sees her rabbit's untimely death as a manifestation of one of Trelawney's other predictions. Harry finds her classes trying primarily because Trelawney predicts his death during their first class, constantly sees the death omen the Grim when she reads Harry's fortune, and starts sniffling whenever she sees him. This leads him to agree with Hermione until the day of Harry's final Divination exam, when Trelawney makes what Dumbledore believes was a real prediction. Trelawney predicts that Voldemort's servant will rejoin him later that evening, though she seems to be in a trance while she does so and doesn't remember making the prediction when Harry asks her about it when she returns to normal.
