Dolores Umbridge might be the most despised character in the Harry Potter universe but there is a lot in her backstory that goes unsaid. These fans have pointed out a number of details about the former High Inquisitor of Hogwarts that somehow make her even more despicable.
Umbridge Went To Azkaban After The Second War
From Redditor u/Mathias_Greyjoy:
We know from Rowling what happened to her after The Battle of Hogwarts.
"With the fall of Lord Voldemort, Dolores Umbridge was put on trial for her enthusiastic co-operation with his regime, and convicted of the torture, imprisonment and deaths of several people (some of the innocent Muggle-borns she sentenced to Azkaban did not survive their ordeal)."Interesting?
She Forced Her Father To Abandon Their Non-Magic Family
From Redditor u/ChintonP04:
She was not from an abusive home. Her mother was muggle, or a squib, while her father was a wizard. Her brother was also non-magical. SHE forced her father to abandon her mother and brother, because she saw them as lowly.Interesting?
Umbridge Is The Only Person Other Than Voldemort To Scar Harry
From Redditor u/RowlingWritings:
[JK Rowling said] Harry considered Dolores's continuing employment, and the lack of any repercussions for her behaviour at Hogwarts, a sign of the Ministry's essential corruption, and refused to cooperate with the new Minister because of it (Dolores is the only person, other than Lord Voldemort, to leave a permanent physical scar on Harry, having forced him to cut the words 'I must not tell lies' on the back of his own hand during detention).Interesting?
Umbridge Has A Phobia Of Things Not Fully Human
From Redditor u/falexbet:
[JK Rowling said] Dolores has what amounts to a phobia of beings that are not quite, or wholly, human. Her distaste for the half-giant Hagrid, and her terror of centaurs, reveal a terror of the unknown and the wild.Interesting?
