Post J.K. Rowling's bio on Gilderoy Lockhart revealed in Pottermore's "Chamber of Secrets"

J.K. Rowling added a new exclusive biography to Pottermore, this time of former Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher Gilderoy Lockhart in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, highlighting some of his misdeeds as a student at Hogwarts and how he won his notoriety in the Wizarding World. A few excerpts can be read here.



Quote:
Birthday: 26th January
Wand: Cherry and dragon heartstring, nine inches, slightly bendy
Hogwarts house: Ravenclaw
Special abilities: Accomplished at Memory Charms; devised hair-care system involving Occamy egg yolks, which guaranteed ‘locks of lustrous luminosity’ (the shampoos were indeed effective, but too dangerous and expensive to produce for the mass market)
Parentage: Muggle father, magical mother
Family: Two Muggle sisters, no children
Hobbies: Autographing photographs of self, relentless self-promotion

Albus Dumbledore’s plans, however, ran deep. He happened to have known two of the wizards for whose life’s work Gilderoy Lockhart had taken credit, and was one of the only people in the world who thought he knew what Lockhart was up to. Dumbledore was convinced that Lockhart needed only to be put back into an ordinary school setting to be revealed as a charlatan and a fraud. Professor McGonagall, who had never liked Lockhart, asked Dumbledore what he thought students would learn from such a vain, celebrity-hungry man. Dumbledore replied that ‘there is plenty to be learned even from a bad teacher: what not to do, how not to be’.

It's interesting to know that Dumbledore had other reasons for hiring Lockhart.

Wow, even more proof that Dumbledore had almost everyone figured out. It would definitely be like McGonagall to say that, too.

A similar thought occurred to me as I read this. It'll be a thing. "That's so McGonagall of you!"

That's what people will say whenever we pass tough, but fair judgement.
