 All About Dolores Umbridge

Dolores Jane Umbridge was the eldest child of Orford Umbridge and Ellen Cracknell. An accomplished witch, she joins the Ministry of Magic as an in the Improper use of the magic office. Even at eighteen, Dolores was judgemental, arrogant, and sadistic. Although her saccharine manner, ruthlessness, and stealth with which she took credit for all good works of others gained her advancement. While most of the people of ministry valued her hard work but those who got to know her found it difficult to like her. As she grew older and rose higher in ministry, her taste in little girlish accessories grow more and more.

Even her name was taken very carefully by the writer JK Rowling. ‘Dolores’ means sorrow, something she inflicts on all around, and ‘Umbridge’ means an offense, which truly describes her personality.

As the new defense against the Dark arts instructor, the Saccharine pink-colored is only there to dissuade students from actual learning. This forces Harry and his friends to create an illegal secret study group so they can teach themselves defensive spells.

Moreover, she has taken a new position as the head of the Muggle-born Registration Committee, where she resides over show trails of Muggle-born. She even didn’t participate in the battle of Hogwart, it’s not exactly known why but it was speculated she is being clever and tactical knew if the current ministerial regime would fall, she can defend herself. But nothing could save her from getting punished.
