Alicia Spinnet in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Alicia Spinnet

Alicia Spinnet plays Chaser for the Gryffindor Quidditch team; she's also a fourth year during the second book. She tries to intervene on Harry's behalf during the Gryffindor-Slytherin game: "Oliver, this is insane […] You can't let Harry deal with that [rogue Bludger] on disown. Let's ask for an inquiry —" (10.70). Her logic doesn't convince either Oliver Wood or Harry.
