Trying to sift through your Potter memory? Can't think who Mafalda Hopkirk is? Well, let us help refresh your memory.
Mafalda Hopkirk is a Ministry worker that working the Improper Use of Magic Office. After Harry uses a Patronus Charm to protect him and his cousin, Dudley, from Dementors he receives a letter claiming that he has been expelled from Hogwarts thanks to his breach of the Decree for the Reasonable Restriction of Underage Wizardry.
