Jk Rowling treated Harry Potter die-hard fans with a special Halloween dose yesterday by releasing a brand new short story.

The new story profiles the malicious Dolores Umbridge, the Professor of Defense Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts.2

Rowling finally opened up about how the character came to be: β€œLong ago, I took instruction in a certain skill or subject (I am being vague as vague can be, for reasons that are about to become obvious), and in doing so, came into contact with a teacher or instructor whom I disliked intensely on sight,” she told TODAY.com.

The story goes into detail about the complex character and Rowling has even admitted to Dolores being the character she hates the most: "Her desire to control, to punish, and to inflict pain, all in the name of law and order, are, I think, every bit as reprehensible as Lord Voldemort's unvarnished espousal of evil," she says.
