Donnella "Donna" Aramina Shacklebolt is a Gryffindor student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1970 to 1977, and shared a dorm with Carlotta Meloni, Marlene Price, Mary Macdonald, and Shelley Mumps. She is also the sister of auror Kingsley Shacklebolt, a canon character who first appeared in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Donna is a chaser on the Gryffindor Quidditch team.
She is the older sister of three siblings: her brother Isaiah, her eleven year old sister Bridget Cecelia, and six year old brother Brice. Her parents were passionate protesters against Lord Voldemort, leading to their deaths when Donna was fourteen years old.
Donna is described to be a tall, athletically built black witch, with curly dark hair and amber colored eyes.
Many of the younger Hogwarts students seem to see her as scary, while the olders just see Donna as 'a bitch'.
Donna doesn't have a lot of friends, and she doesn't really have anything against it. Although roommates and often hangs out with Marlene Price and Mary Macdonald, the only one Donna really seems to see as a friend of hers, is Lily Evans. The two of them became friends in their third year, when Lily fearlessly told Donna off and asked her to 'play nice'.
They did have a fall out after a fight, which made Donna realise how much she depended on Lily. The pair ended up as friends again, however.
In her sixth year, Donna went behind Cassidy Gamp's back, and slept with the latter's boyfriend at the time, Charlie Plex. The whole thing ended when Charlie confessed to Cassidy, because he wanted to be in a relationship with Donna, who refused. Realising that he had been toyed with, Charlie has since hold a grudge against Donna, and is now getting back at her, by threatening to hit on Bridget Shacklebolt, Donna's younger sister.
Donna is very over protective with her younger siblings, a fact that is shown when her sister Bridget starts at Hogwarts in "The Worst Day Ever".
Donna has weak 'friendship' with James Potter, although you would more likely call them classmates than friends. It is also heavily implied she has a crush on Jack Lathe, the Auror temporally stationed at Hogwarts in her sixth year because of the attempted suicides. She met him again that summer at the Leaky Cauldron.
- "Donna Shacklebolt," said the redhead firmly, "What did I tell you about being a bitch around people who don't understand that you're always a bitch?"
- — Lily Evans in "Good Girls Say I Love You".
Donna Shacklebolt is a straight forward girl, who is not likely to be formal or nice to anyone but Lily Evans. Although a good person, most people seem to avoid her, due to the fact that she 'scares them away'.
After "The Life and Times"Editar
Donna Shacklebolt is a non-canon character, so her future is unknown.
