My name is Marlene McKinnion. Back when I was young I was in Gryffindor House and was the best friend of Lily Evans. I sort of had a romantic relationship with Sirius Black. We never married, of course, but we were always on romantic terms. Leaving Hogwarts I joined the Order of the Phoenix. I was considered to be part of one of the most powerfullest wizarding families. I died on July 19, unable to witness my best friend's son's second birthday. A few Death Eaters ambushed me. I fought well but I alone wasn't nearly a match for twelve. In the end, Travers finished me.
