Petunia Dursley is Harry’s maternal aunt, Lily Potter’s older sister, Vernon’s wife, Dudley’s mother, Marge’s sister-in-law. She is described as a bony woman with blonde hair that she passed down to her son, a “rather horsey” face and a very long neck, and spends most of her time spying on her neighbours. Her eyes are large and pale, quite unlike Lily’s. Her entire family, except Lily, is made up of Muggles. According to Petunia, her parents were proud of having a witch in the family, but Petunia saw her sister as a freak. In fact, Petunia was envious and resentful of Lily’s magical abilities and went so far as to write to Dumbledore, pleading to be allowed to enter Hogwarts. Dumbledore gently denied her enrollment. Afterwards, Petunia grew bitter towards the school and, by extension, towards the wizarding world in general.
