Sally Anne Perks was a female student who was sorted into Gryffindor House in 1991.
1995-1996 yearsEditIn 1995, Dolores Umbridge became the Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher and refused to teach practical classes. In order to counter her, Dumbledore's Army was formed. Sally was one of the students to join the group along with many other Gryffindors. She was seen walking to the meetings with her wand raised. Unbeknownst to her, she was being followed by Argus Filch and Mrs. Norris, who were trying to discover what the group was up to.
One of the meetings that she attended was when Nigel Wolpert practiced Stupefy on Harry Potter, and later Hermione Granger on Ron Weasley. When Hermione threw Ron across the room, Sally was one of the students to laugh at him. She attended another meeting at Christmas, when Neville finally managed to perform the Disarming Charm, and she immediately stopped practicing and rushed to congratulate him. When Harry Potter decided that there would be no more meetings until after Christmas, she joined in the sighing and said something sadly to Padma Patil. However, she still joined in the clapping after Harry's speech on how well everyone had done.
While the Army practiced the Patronus Charm, Dolores Umbridge and the Inquisitorial Squad broke into the Room of Requirement and took everyone, including Sally Anne Perks. out of the room. Albus Dumbledore was later suspended and she watched as an Educational Decree declared Dolores Umbridge the new Head of Hogwarts.
During the last months of the year, Sally Anne Perks participated in the Battle of Hogwarts against Voldermort and his army. Sally used a spell to make her grow into the same size as a giant, and was able to knock more than seven giants. Her spell didn't last long, and she returned to her normal size. Sally continued to fight, but was later killed in the battle. Her body was carried by several students and was placed with the others that perished as well.
